It's Good Practice.

A few weeks ago my friend, Michele, called me and asked me what I had going on this weekend because she was going to be in a wedding near Athens and needed a place to stay for the night since she lives in a land far, far away. Needless to say, I immediately cleared my schedule [read: cancelled my date with the SNL season finale, maybe next time Will Ferrell] and prepared for the fun that was sure to ensue. And what a great time we had catching up. Honestly, I can't remember if I have actually seen her since her wedding nearly 4 years ago, but we have stayed in touch over the years. She is such a fun person with an incredible heart. I still haven't figured out how I'm so lucky to have people like that in my life.
Today after church, we had a terrific lunch downtown at 5-Star Day [hello, soul food, you are my friend], stopped by the pet store to get some food for her small-breed dogs [Great Dane and Lab/Pit mix], and headed over to the infamous Athens mall for great shopping. Well, I don't know about great shopping, but we at least had great cold treats from Dairy Queen, and I did get a new bag for the beach [the place I will be this time next week] so over all it was a successful trip. Especially since Michele found an adorable pink shirt for her soon-to-be-born baby boy at GapKids.
After we got back to my apartment, I had the brilliant idea of getting a picture of Michele with Cash the wonder Lab before she left. Obviously the dog had other ideas.

[Look, I know what you're wondering, but no, Cash was not baptized today.]

At least now when she's chasing a two-year old little boy around a photography studio all for the sake of the perfect Christmas picture, she'll be a seasoned professional. Come back soon, Michele. We miss you already!

I had a BLAST! I have decided that even though Cash wasn't baptised...he could have been healed:) I am sporting my new blue shirt today! And Aaron made a joke that I was de-masculinizing our son (with the pink)...I reminded him that he was a baby and he would be plenty secure in his masculinity:) Hope you had a great weekend too!
