What a great birthday party! I had such a sweet, fun, refreshing time with Gail and Beki and their beautiful daughters. Beki is like the best hostess EVER. Aren’t ya, Bek? Gail and I got to chat quite a bit (and Beki joined us when she wasn’t busy hostessing). Gail’s thinking of hosting an adults (female) only sleepover sometime in the (near?) future where you find something for your kids/hubby/boyfriend/dog to do while you’re gone and carpool with a friend down to Too-Tucky (so says Nina) and spend all kinds of hours chatting with your xanga pals about live, love, and Jesus. Doesn’t that sound like FUN?!?
Thanks so much for your love and support and commenting on BooMama’s blog and stuff. She’s almost up to 200 comments which is no big deal on her blog (but super-huge to me). And book orders are rolling in, thanks to Boo and Amanda (which means I can almost pay Harvest House for the 4 boxes of books I bought a month ago–oops!).
If you get a chance to check out Amanda’s blog, please do it. I’ve been reading her blog for maybe a year now, and we e-mail each other now and again. She’s wonderful. So real and honest and funny. (I’m loving these gals from down south!) Her hubby’s a young pastor, and I know lots of you can relate to that. She has a gorgeous little 2-year-old boy named Jackson and shares the funniest stories about him. And her mama’s a household name (at least in our household), but you certainly wouldn’t know that by reading her blog, because she’s so down-to-earth and completely unpretentious. I just love her to bits. If you’re reading this, Amanda, I love you to bits and can’t wait to hug your neck! (a phrase I’ve learned from my southern bloggy friends)
I still want to post pics from the zoo. We got some cool ones. (there’s that word again)
I’m feeling extra thankful for you, my xanga friends, today. Love you! Good night!
