Storing Up Memories

My sweet friend Dory came for a long weekend visit 
this past weekend and it was FABULOUS!

We stayed at my sweet friend Betty's lakehouse and had a weekend full of:
  • LOTS and LOTS of talking
  • driving to another town to watch Madison dance at halftime & almost not finding the stadium in time
  • eating {best pie ever here- they even have pie happy hour!}
  • lots of antique shopping
  • movie watching {3 in the theater-Utopia, Dolphin Tale, The Big Year- 2 on DVD}
  •  driving around in the golf cart {SO SO SO SO fun!}
  •  TONS of laughing {like when I walked into the men's restroom at the movies- oops!}
  • GIANT metal chicken picture taking
  • 2.5 hours spent in the McDonald's parking lot while a precious young man {along with his wife, 16 month old, and cousin} changed the starter in my car {they were truly a blessing!}
  • coffee and Diet Coke drinking {which meant many trips to Sonic & McDonald's}
  • Rummikub playing
  • picture taking {GIANT spur, antler tree, beautiful lake sunrise}


It was a super relaxing weekend and I loved every single minute of it! 

We always have such a great time together and because we live so far apart, 
I try to treasure and store up every single memory in my heart for 
all those days in between our visits. 

I absolutely HATED to put her back on the plane to go home. 
I HATE that we live so far apart.

But I am so thankful for the time that we get to spend together
and for text messaging and email and phones
and so thankful God blessed me with such a precious friend. 
I love her much!
