Well, as predicted at the end of this post, BB is sad. Brenda, Denice and Paige are getting on a plane right now to return home to Nebraska and South Dakota. : (
We had a SPECTACULAR weekend... It went way too fast.
Yesterday, after church, I found out that JTC had roped the three of them into a big plan. We arrived home to a surprise b-day party! (My birthday is Tuesday.) How cool is that?!
Not sure how they did it, but I was clueless until we pulled into the driveway that there was anything in the works. Very cool.
Gwen brought a b-day cake, LaLa brought chocolate covered strawberries and bananas, peanut butter pie and baked brie (all homemade BTW... very YUMMY), Micol brought a yummy pasta salad, JTC grilled burgers and dogs... it was excellent.
When we were done eating, we all (about 14 people) ended up sitting out on the deck pickin', singin' and playin'.
It was a BLAST.
JTC's present to me was a left-handed acoustic guitar. I've been talking about learning to play, but wasn't planning to get a guitar anytime soon. He completely blew me away. Can't wait to get started!
Thanks to everyone for an incredible weekend with old and new-old friends.
I miss you already Brenda, Paige and Denice.
You're the BEST.
