Early Friday morning, my sweet husband dropped me off at the airport and I made my way to Arkansas to spend the weekend with my Arkansas Bestie, Marci. We had plans to eat, laugh, and junk shop.
My ride to Northwest Arkansas.
We walked the square and then had lunch at Tusk and Trotter where I downed a full-sized hamburger and plate of fries. (momcation you can eat whatever you want!)
Next, we ran to a few thrift shops where I racked up on cheap matilda jane, under armour and pyrex bowls. Marci found a load of Brand New Ralph Lauren pullovers for next to nothing...
I love my life in Texas but I sure do miss the beauty of Arkansas.
On Saturday we loaded up and headed to Praire Grove for a day of junk shopping. I couldn't help myself and took pictures along the way. I really miss trees and hills!
Love this girl. Once upon a time, we went to lunch together with 18 month Lucy and as we talked Lucy rubbed sour cream all over her face and then proceeded to get up and run around the restaurant... And Marci still wanted to be my friend!
I might steal Joseph. He is well mannered, hard working, a little serious and a little silly.
Monday morning Marci drove me to the airport and just like that my momcation was over. I felt refreshed and renewed and ready to see my family. Marci is quite the hostess and her family is just the sweetest. She also is quite the cook and has renewed a new interest in cooking for me. (and organizing and parenting... laundry... basically she is great at everything!) She inspires me.
My husband picked me up at the airport and greeted me with a hug and kiss (love actually style). He missed me. My kids were not ready to leave Manna and Aunt Laura's care. But we are all back together and enjoying the week off of school.
God is bigger than this and Jesus Can fix-it.
