It's been a little crazy around here. But in a good way.
On Thursday, my friend, Pam, came to visit for a few days. I picked her up at the airport (in another city) and we went and checked in at the hotel. We then drove downtown to enjoy an amazing dinner at the Spaghetti Factory. I love The Spaghetti Factory. I really love their spaghetti with Mizithra cheese and brown butter. Absolutely heavenly!
Back to the hotel for some chatting, laughing, and sleeping. Light on the sleeping.
Friday morning and we're out the door to attend Women of Faith - Over the Top at the Pepsi Center. There were a LOT OF WOMEN there. I know, it's probably what we should expect, right? Ten thousand of them.
The day got off to a roaringly hilarious start with Patsy Clairmont and Andy Andrews. Not that the other speakers weren't terrific, but I could've listened to Patsy & Andy all weekend. I could listen to them all month. Maybe the rest of the year. The emcee was right about Patsy - she's so cute you just want to put her in your pocket and take her home. Loved her!!
I really knew nothing about Andy, but he was something else! In a good way. You know how people will say they want to bottle up all the energy a toddler or young child has, because they just don't have it anymore? Well, Andy does. In a big way. They guy was ALL OVER the place. And talking very fast. And heading off on bunny trails galore. He practically ran back and forth across the stage, up and down the stairs, out into the audience, and back. But all with a great message. Good stuff.
We also got to see and listen to Brenda Warner, Mandisa, and Sandi Patty on Friday. Loved them all!
Mandisa is so cute - she wears a Snuggie offstage. Tee hee!
In order to not have too huge a post, I'll share the rest of the weekend in Part 2.
