Just a little bit of guns & dresses

That's how I would describe my last 24 hrs (minus a few hours of work).  Yesterday morning I woke up to a wonderful downpour of rain. I am not at all being sarcastic friends.  I love it when it rains because I would love to go on my boat every single, solitary day of the week, but being in the real world has put a damper on that little thought.  So when it rains, I feel no pressure about not being able to go on the boat.  Plus I love the sound of a good rain.  Any who, I woke up at 7am to meet mi madre at the pool to swim laps.  Side note-go for a swim in the rain.  It's awesome.  Feels so so so good.  Very theraputic.  I swam.  Then I showered and booked it over to Starbucks for an ice coffee and a cram sesh.  My huddle (very cool group of women from St. A's that meets together) was due to head to Edisto (my favorite place in the world universe to see Susalee and discuss a book we are reading.  Some of my favorite people + my fav place = gloriousness..  Big surprise, I needed to read the chapters before I got down there...So I read/listened to music/people watched before heading south.

We got to Edisto and I immediately felt right at home (this always happens when I land on that lil island of paradise).  We all sat around on the porch and talked about the book, which is actually kind of interesting (Breaking the Rules by Fil Anderson).  We discussed many things.  A lot about transparency and being real and what not.  Then we ate a delish lunch and sang Happy Bday to Susalee who just so happened to have a very special birthday today! Happy Bday Susalee:)  Then we headed out to talk some more.  Here's where things got a little interesting for me.  We were discussing some topics.  I asked a ? pretending to not be talking about me (uh, like that ever works.  idiot box) Less than 10 min later we were inside, I was on a couch and they sneak attacked me with Ananias prayer.  Little bandits they are.  I was panicking inside.  (Although.. there is a .07% I hid that..)  I was immediately trying to come up with a clever exit strategy, but none came to mind.  So I took one for the team.  All I can say is that it was AWESOME.  I have almost no recollection of all that was said, but it was good and I wish I could have done it all over again today.  There is something so cool about having people that you love, admire and respect pray for you.  I don't even know how to describe it.  It made me feel so loved.  No joke.  It was really cool.  And I am super duper thankful.

When I opened my eyes, this is what happened...
Then I got to see this
 Best part was that I got to watch it with these lil ladies.  Just look at em
Then I really scored because I got to feast on this
 Man oh man was that a good supper.  The Sassers are super awesome hosts.  Good people.  I got to spend the night last night.  I slept so so so so so good.  I did not want to wake up this morning.  However, I have a small confession.  In the middle of the night I woke up for some reason.  It was pretty dark in there, but I saw something out of the corner of my eye.  Keep in mind that I had been in the middle of a deep sleep, so I was somewhat delirious.  I got a little scared and saw something.  I immediately flicked on the lights... only to find...
Then I laughed at myself.  For several minutes...  Once I realized that there was not a sketchy man in my room.. just a large dead animal, it was safe to resume my delightful slumber.  Unfortunately, I had to wake up and go back to town.  For work.  Boo.  Today I inspected a house with some very interesting things.  And people.  Hope i never have to go back.  But, it went by fast.  Then I got to go celebrate Caroline's bday.   On my way home I was pleasantly surprised with a proposition to go hang with the Grady's.  Good people.  Funny people.  I like them. Lots.  (They are prolly reading this right now...This shout out totally warrants an invite to the frog)  All in all it was a pretty good 24hrs.  I think I'd like to do it again.. How bout tomorrow?  Hope you had a good one.


P.S.- Do yourself a favor.  Make a Patty Griffin station on your Pandora.  Next time it rains. Put it on.  Turn it up.  Light a candle.  Trust me.
