Lovelady's Lake House and peach cobbler

I just thought that sounded like a fun title. I had the MOST incredible weekend in good ole Tuscaloosa Alabama with one of my fav people in the world, Casey Gann. What a wonderful girls weekend I had!(Although don't worry Todd, I missed you more than you know the whole time you were in New York and I am so glad you are back!). I drove down Thursday night after work, and arrived to a homecooked dinner from Casey waiting on me. I was totally impressed. She made amazing parmesan chicken, not to be confused with chicken parmesan. We headed out to the Lovelady's lakehouse for a wonderful weekend. Wow! It was gorgeous. So many windows, with views of the lake everywhere.
Friday was the Perfect day! I mean.....when else can you sleep in, spend 2 hours uninteruppted with Jesus, lay around in your pajamas, go floating in the lake, put your pjs back on and watch a movie(a girlie movie of course), make soup and homemade peach cobblerish stuff(yum yum ask casey for the recipe), then watch another girlie movie. I can't tell you the last time I have had a day where I did not have a schedule. It was amazing, and the weather was perfect!By the way, are you impressed that this big, and getting much bigger every day 7 month pregnant momma could successfully get on a float in the lake!...well mind you they were really good floats, not a flimsy plastic one, but still I was impressed with myself:)
Sat. was much the same, with more lounging and laying on the lake. I am still waiting on my tan to appear. Then we went shopping, cuz my wonderful friend Casey took me shopping...she is just too good. Then we went to her church's supper club..where guess what. WE had more peach cobbler. Apparently that is the fav dessert in Alabama.
Sunday was great, with a very convicting sermon at church.....Actually, as relaxing as this whole weekend was, God defionatly used it to convict me of alot of things. I have become a little complacent and lazy in my walk with God....I want to actively seek to grow in him every day and not be content to stay the same. Even if that requires work!
But of course this morning I hit the snooze button too many times to hear from the Lord. So I guess I will have to put into practice all I learned tommorow instead
Casey...Thanks for an amazing weekend. you totally spoiled me,and I had a BLAST! That is one trip I will remember for a long time. I love you!

You're so precious, Michelle. I can't tell you how much it means that you took a weekend to drive here to spend time with me. It was a privilege to get to spoil you a little. And I definitely got a little spoiled myself.

I don't think you could possibly know how much I needed this weekend. I feel so refreshed and I got to connect with the Lord in a way that I haven't for a long time. And I got to connect with YOU in a way that I haven't in a long time. It was nice to talk about the little things and not just a marathon catch-up of the big life stuff.
