Don and I had a great weekend away this weekend.  We got some much needed rest and time with one another.  I recommend anyone that has the opportunity to attend any type of couples getaway or marriage retreat TO GO!  This was our second time to attend the FCA Coaches Getaway and once again it did not disappoint.  It can do wonders for your soul and your relationship.

To me, it doesn't get much better than surrounding yourself with people that "get" your lifestyle, coaching, and all that comes with it.  We met people from our area, our "new" area, and had a great time bowling, sitting in on sessions and even had a date night.  It was wonderful.

While we were away, this little girl was living it up with Peeps and DeDe.  Thank goodness for iPhones and picture texting.  DeDe made sure to keep us informed of all that was going on!

Playing in Granny's backyard.

 She went to big Sunday School at BUMC!

Before the weekend, we had a fun little week!  We met Knox and his parents for a cupcake to support a Russian adoption.  Ellie loves Knox and talks about him all the time.  She was excited about seeing her buddy and wanted a PINK cupcake!  She picked cotton candy.  Yuck.  But it was pink (with blue filling) and hey, it was for a good cause so she got to choose.

On Thursday Don had meetings in Greenfield so we rode with him.  Ellie and I got to attend our first Fiddlestick festival!  I had high hopes of her loving the rides and smiling and waving as she hopped on.  That was not the case at first but she ended up having a great time.  She did not want to leave!

The swings were NOT her favorite!

The rides were free, the games were not.  She loved the games the most, of course.

She did ride this fish ride and seemed okay at first but was ready to get OUT!  Look at her holding on for dear life.  Bless her.

The rest of these pictures are just random off of my phone.  Miss America wanted to model her new suit in her heels.  It was only appropriate:)

We made Play Doh pizzas after we got home from our trip.  This girl loves Play Doh.  It's great for the carpet and keeping a house clean for showings.  HA!  But we had fun making pizzas, pancakes and cookies.  She has such an imagination!

I just thought this was too cute.  Daddy's girl for sure!

Have a great week!

  1. Adorable. And I love that fundraiser idea. Who doesn't love a good cupcake especially when it's for a good cause?
