This is right after dinner. You know. When everyone in the neighborhood is home to see us let our kids run around in their skivvies.

I woke up at 4:15 this morning. (You read that right.) And went to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Women of Faith Conference. The ladies at my former church were so thoughtful to invite me to go along with their group. It was wonderful to reconnect with old friends, meet some new ones, and learn a lot in the process!

One thing I noticed is that Downtown Tulsa has a lot of interesting architecture. Not that this is necessarily a picture of it! This is the Bok Center (aka "Gigantic Frigidaire") where the conference was held. It looks a bit too much like a space station to me. And, in its evilness, forces people to wear sweaters and parkas (okay, maybe not parkas) in August! (Do I complain a lot about extreme temperatures to y'all?)

Mary Mary was the featured music group today. I'd never heard of them before, except for the song "Shackles (Praise You)" which I really like. In general, though, they are definitely not my musical cup-of-tea, but they certainly have a lot of "swagga." (According to the urban dictionary, that means "How you present yourself to the world.") Anyhoo...

Here's our group on the second day of the conference. As you can see, we're such a cool bunch that Sheila Walsh herself decided to get in the picture with us! Who can blame her, really?

And then...Natalie Grant. Oh, yes ma'am.

One of my favorite Christian musicians (if only for her sheer level of talent) performed. With. bronchitis! (The day before this she had NO voice.) Wow. Let me tell you, she has about the most amazing set of pipes on the face of the planet! I was floored with how great she sounded while sick. Girl can sAng!

Those of you who don't know, Sara and her pastor hubby came to our old church about five to seven months (maybe a year?) AFTER Paul and I had left to find a better fit for our family. Because some of her new friends were also some of mine, I happened upon Sara's blog through a mutual friend on Facebook. Of course, I liked what I read there. And we've been blogging together (is that what you call it?) ever since. 

I so enjoyed getting to know Sara better. It was the first time we'd actually been able to hang out! And FYI she's really good at the game Two Truths and a Lie. not. 

Sara's Project 365 can be found here. What have the rest of you guys been up to? 


  1. Love all the bling your daughter is bringing to the kitchen!!! adorable!

    I have never, ever, heard of conditioning a chalk board....looks messy!!

    What a great weekend we had!!! I am still chewing on all the messages we heard and still smiling about all the great friendships we developed!!

    btw, am I reading this right? did you just call me a good liar? :)

  2. No way, Sara! You're just quicker on your feet than I am.

  3. LOL - you guys are funny. I'm so glad you got to spend some time together - the conference sounds great!

  4. My mom was at that conference with you. It was here in Dallas the weekend before and I wish I could have gone! I am glad you got to go and enjoy the fellowship with other ladies as well!

  5. Poppy looks very happy with his company and vice versa!
    That picture of the roto-copters is awesome! It almost looks like fairies are fluttering.
    Natalie Grant does have a great set of pipes. Now don't tell me you didn't get some groove on with Mary Mary! I am so glad to see a full front shot of your haircut!! You look fabulous!
    Have a super week!!!

  6. Cute chef you have at your house and I think my boys would love those roto-coptors. That reflective pic that you took in Tulsa is fantabulous! And what fun to meet up with bloggy friends and at such a great meeting spot too. And don't feel bad, but boys run around in the unders all the time!

  7. Your little chef is so cute. So jealous of you going to the women of faith conference. How awesome. I so want to go.
    neat that you met up with Sara too.

  8. Hopped over from Sara's. Isn't she just the best?

    We got to meet up this summer when my family travelled to Hot Springs. Fun.

    blessings for a great week
