I'm back! The enormous public outcry can stop, Beth. Fate conspired against me this weekend and killed my iPhone, followed quickly by zapping all the wi-fi I was cribbing all over the state of Texas, leaving me entirely internet-less and sending me into a sort of withdrawal. It was terribly, terribly stressful and I am greatly relieved to be back on my own personal wireless signal.
So, a recap. Saturday: dropped my phone. Then, the Lone Star Baby Banquet! Julie and Jennifer and others pulled off an amazing night, the place was so beautiful and the food was awesome. We had a much smaller turnout than expected, and I was a little bummed to not see more familiar faces, but when it was all done, we raised over $1500 and got to really share our hearts and hopefully, inspired some others to adopt and support adoption. We were so blessed by everyone who came, it was a very joyful night of friends and family.
The MOG and I got to have a night away, the last one before we are a family of 6, and then we drove back to Kansas City in the Radiant van. It was a long, long, long, sticky hot ride. I'm so glad to be back home for a couple of days before we pack back up and head to St Louis for 21 days.
