Retreat Happiness!

Eeekkkk... look how long it's been since I posted! What have I been doing? Nothing I'm sad to report. I've just been in a funk... and haven't wanted to do a darn thing. Don't know what is wrong with me, but it's about time this funk goes away! Today is a new day.... and I say let's turn things around!

Sooooo, this past week-end I went to Colleyville, Tx. and had myself some retreat happiness! My friend Kathi invited me to a scrap retreat. I have to tell you, I was really hesitant about going. The whole going to spend a couple of days with people I've never met... having to leave my scrap stash... driving to the metroplex all by myself which is something I've NEVER done...instead of being all excited about going I was nervous and dreading it just a little. OH MY GOSH! It was awesome! I had the best time and can not wait until the next one! The ladies there were just amazing and so awesome. I made some new friends and discovered that I'm really not that far away!

I guess I shouldn't rave about them all.... for not everyone was nice. "What" you say? No, really, I promise. One person, no matter how hard I tried to win her over, it just wasn't happenin'! "You can't be serious" you are thinking! I have proof! In black and white... well maybe a little green too. Below is a two page layout she made for me as a gift... I guess to remember our week-end. I was so excited when she gave it to me... then I started reading it!

Go ahead... I'll wait while you read it yourself.

Can you imagine someone you are trying to befriend giving you something like that? Why I was just in shock! And she really talked to me the whole time like that! And can you believe that I... me.... never said a word! I know, shocking! But it's true! She did say though that they would give me another chance and she did sign it love Twee.... so maybe there is hope yet! A girl can dream can't she!

Twee really was a lot of fun... and we got along perfectly. I'm not real sure what she was like the crop before because everyone kept telling me I'd brought out a different side of her, that she was always so quiet before?? Leave it to me huh?
She did make some yummy desserts and gave me something super that I'll post tomorrow! I sure hope she's at the next one.... cause I might just have to make her something a little special!

Don't we just look like we are having a blast! There's three of us missing from the picture. I didn't realize until I was loading the picture.

That's Twee on the far left. She doesn't look like she could be mean does she?

I really did have a great time. The place was so nice... the beds so comfy. I have a feeling that if they will have me I will be a regular! A huge huge thanks to Kathi and Kelly for putting it all together and being such great hostesses and to everyone else for taking me in and being so nice!

Thanks for stopping by and I promise not to take so long to get back here!

Haha! That's a little crazy but very funny LO! Glad to hear you had a great time!!

Lisa said...

In all fairness to Twee... she made that from a kit that was given as a door prize. Guess that means I can't hold it against her!

Kathi said...

I'm still laughing over this one! It goes down in the retreat history book. LOL!

We were so glad you could join us and OF COURSE you are now a regular. Come on back now, ya hear?Where were the other three when these pictures were taken? Well, one was taking the photo - duh!

Lisa said...

The other three... Kelly was getting a massage and Allison and Lila were at the recital. No one was behind the camera... remember I had the remote and the camera on a cereal box!

Serene said...

That's a nice picture. Looks like you were all having a great time. Can't believe that lo she gave you. Geez! I'm so happy you had a good time!

So glad you had such a wonderful time, Lisa! That layout is hilarious!
Thanks for sharing your super-awesome weekend with us.

I am not surprised that you made Twee into someone they hadn't seen before. I picture you as someone who can pull things out of people. You look like an instant friend type to me. I think people instantly trust you and for that reason open up to you. Am I right??

Glad you had a great time and see...you did just fine driving by yourself!!! Way to go!!!

I am still laughing about the LO Thuy gave you and about the "late night" we had Friday night.

You are a fun and amazing lady and I am so excited to get to hang out and scrap with you again.

Jean :o)
