At the Lake...

Alright, :::sigh:::, so much has happened over the last quest for fashion...Chapter 4 of Sacred birthday...and I haven't been able to post about any of it. But now, Casey and I are here at our friend's BEAUtiful lake house and I will have ample time to fill you in on all the things that have been going on.

I am really grateful for this week. It is going to be so restful...a much needed calm before the storm. The coming weeks are going to be so crazy! Next week around Thursday, I'll be back in Sugar Land for a few special events, Casey speaks at both Crossbridge and Christ Church and then the next day we leave for South Padre, the first of 7 of Casey's summer camps. So needless to say, I am going to savor every second we are here. And by the way, Casey and I are here by ourselves untill Wednesday evening, and then Braelyn will join us for the remainder of our stay. The perfect plan, I think! :)

We got here late last night (Sunday) so we could begin our getaway right off the bat this afternoon...we didn't get up till 11:00. GLORIOUS! However, our vacation has only been going on officially for 2 hours and 15 minutes, and already we have encountered a minor catastrophe. After we got up, Casey and I enjoyed a light breakfast in the sun room. We decided that we would read/study (Casey is preparing for summer) for the next few hours and then we would go swimming. We gather our dishes and head inside...

Me: um, Case, the door's locked!
Casey: No problem, I'll go 'round front and use the code lock.
He returns to the back porch.
Casey: Um...last night I put the bar lock on. (The kind were you can open the door like 2 inches) Haha, that's funny, right?
I give him the wife glare.
Casey: No problem, I'll go to the neighbor's house and get her key.
He returns to the back porch.
Casey: A locksmith is on his way.

So yes, after one hour of vacating, we were locked out of the house, in our pajamas. Good grief! Luckily, the locksmith came very quickly and we have returned to the read/study plan and are as happy as larks. :)

This is where we were trapped. If one must be trapped, this isn't a bad place to be.

Well, I'm gonna do a little reading for a while and later I'll post on my shopping excursion...or rather, the excursion that never happened. ;)

What time is Casey speaking in Sugar Land?

Wow! How amazing. You guys will have an amazing time.

I will def let you know when we butcher (that might sound funny when read by your other readers:). Ha!

And I'm super stoked about the AI finale. DC all the way! That's what I'm talking about.

Lastly, but most importantly, Jason and I have felt the Lord leading us to visit churches in Brenham. This is scary and exciting for me. But, we will for sure visit yours!! We will be out of town this week (Garner trip) and then back next week so I hope we will visit then. Can't wait!

I just want you to know that as I was scrubbing, cleaning, washing, picking up, vacuuming, etc. yesterday...all I could think about was you lolling around reading, dozing, taking in the water and sun. You and Brandi. Ah. My turn will come! For now, though, I'm vacationing in my clean home!
Have a great time, my friends!

I made a mistake about Casey's preaching schedule. He is preaching at Crossbridge and Christ Church THIS COMING SUNDAY...the 25th.

Crossbridge @ 9:30 & 11:15 (Sartartia Middle School in New Territory)

Christ Church @ 5:00pm in Brenham

I am glad that he's preaching 3 times this weekend and not next weekend...the day before we go to Padre!
