My husband, who despises the whole idea of blogs, read mine. It's probably the second time ever he's read one... but this is the conversation that ensued.
Adam: I like your new blog. The design is really good.
Cara: Thanks, what did you specifically like about it?
Adam: I like the ferris wheel picture.
Cara: What ferris wheel picture?
Adam: The one at the top.
Cara: That's not a ferris wheel, that's a picture of the top of the atrium at the Gaylord Texan. Remember, you were there when I took it, you said it was a good picture.
Adam: Well it's a Texas Star.
Cara: Yup. (and then I walk away really confused)
So, I had a really great time this week with friends. I realized as I went to bed last night that I'm so thankful for my friends. I got to talk to Andi for a short while (a rarity with my work schedule and her wedding planning schedule), play phone tag with Jess (we never seem to catch each other), and have a good catch-up conversation with my Darby-Friend last night. But I actually got to see some of my awesome friends too. Thursday dinners with the Googers (not to be confused with the Kooglers) is becoming one of the things I look forward to alot, Hans and Courtney, you rock! Also the Kipp-McDonald adventures continued with game night number two and the boys whomping the girls at knowledge of movies and tv. Reminds me, I must figure out where Adam stores all of his pop culture information. If only Seen It Friends Edition was working, right Rebecca?
Then Sunday we went to our awesome Ethos Sunday school class and then to the best small group in the world last night. It was fun to have Toby's homemade maple syrup for dinner (it doesn't matter what we had with it, the syrup was so good, it's the only thing worth mentioning). And we got to pray over Bruce and know that the Lord listens to those who call out to Him (thanks Nooma-Rain video).
So why am I boring you with all this information about our really cool friends. Well I'm trying to make you jealous and want for you to want to come meet them. We really want to you come and visit us and experience our life here in Dallas. Adam and I are only here for another year and three months (it's not like I'm counting) and A LOT of you haven't been to visit. So really, if you've been putting it off, this is the last summer to get out there and hop on a plane or pack up the family car and make an adventure out of it. God only knows where we'll be after this chapter is over (hopefully not still in Texas), so come visit us while you can.... For those of you in Ohio, come now, it's already 75 and sunny here.... That should tempt you. We have a spare bed, an air mattress, and we welcome children too!
