me and my "Time Out For Women" Peeps

Pictured left to right: Hottie Hilary, Awesome Amy, (Hilary's sister Jaquel? sorry, it was the first time we met, but she is way cute), Julicious(pretend I'm saying DElicious) Joti, Moi, and Sexy Sarah - Just some of the fun girls in my ward. We are eating lunch here at Chili's - it was yum.

This happened forever ago, btw, and I love you ladies just as much as my homies. We all met up and went together, and usually I really enjoy TOFW, but this year was a little bit of a let down for me. The best part was definitely being out with the girls, although I did enjoy a few of the speakers. The highlight for me was singing "Come thou fount of every blessing" a hymn that isn't in our hymnals at church - The words really touched me and seemed to encompass my life up to this point.
But I have to say, that two days with such fun girls was definitely worth sitting through a few slow spots in very small hard chairs! I definitely need to come up with a better excuse to get out with my friends!
Not pictured are Lori and Rachel who came on Friday night but couldn't on Saturday! You were missed! And if you weren't there with us, you are invited for next year! The more the merrier!

It looks like you had lots of fun! I think the best part for me doing stuff like this is usually just being with other girls and not having to chase my kids around!

Come thou fount of every blessing is my all time very favorite song. brings me to tears every time. I don't know why they took it out of the hymnal. But they need to put it back in.

Jen do you happen to have the words to this hymn? I can't find it anywhere - Let me know.

Thanks for posting! Now I can steal the photo. I thought it wasn't as good as in the past either. Next year we should just see a chick flick and maybe have little devotionals on the way there...
