A lot has happened since I blogged last. Sheryl and the ZOEs had a great time in Malibu. The girls and I did well here at home. I spent a weekend in Wisconsin retreating and got back on Monday.

There've been a lot of conversations, a lot of thoughts, a lot of questions. Part of taking time away involves evaluation. Thankfully, I have friends and family who are great in helping me process.

There's also been plenty of fun!

Last night we went to celebrate our friend Randy's 50th birthday. It was such a blast! They rented a room at the Richland Country Club and his friends surrounded him to celebrate his life. Randy is the president of Lyric Street Records, the Disney Country Music label. This picture is a great representation of the night. Randy on the left being completely goofy, Shaubie in the middle trying to be serious, and me. David and I had way too much fun. We're dangerous together.

It was fun getting to hang out with the Shaubs again. Jonathan and I pose together here.

Jonathan (who is Randy's nephew by the way) and I pose with Kristen from SHeDAISEY, one of the country groups on Randy's record label.

Two of the Rascall Flatts lead us in Happy Birthday to Randy. (The Flatts are also on Randy's label) What a fun night!

Wow! I'm loving Rascal Flatts "My Wish" song! How cool!

Glad your break has been a good one filled with rest & laughter!

I am glad that your weekend in Wisconsin was profitable. Every year I spend a week in seclusion praying, reading, reflecting, and meditating. It's how I make it through the rest of the year. I know that it helped you as well.

You've got to be kidding me. "The Boys" (as my mom and I call them) are a minor mother/daughter obsession in my family. We're totally going to see them June 16 in Dallas. YEAH! I can't believe you get to hang out with all these cool people!

Also, while you were retreating in Wisconsin, i55 was retreating in Midlothian, TX. I think you might be familiar with our little i55 band. ;-) Anyway, it was incredible. INCREDIBLE! (Did you know there's such a thing as the Holy Spirit? Seriously! There is!) You need to check out the i55 website where people will be posting their testimonies from the weekend. Oh wow. You can also look at my blog for a bit of my personal experience/found calling from the weekend.

The two from RF are Joe Don and Jay... and I must say it ~ Holy Crap! That's just too cool.

Stephen Bailey said...

How come nobody ever makes comments like "Wow" and "Holy Crap!" when you post pictures of me on your blog? Go figure.

Glad to see you having some fun.
