Do I really have to go back to work today???

Good Morning!!!
So, I'm happy today because even though it feels like Monday, it's really Tuesday...which means we are even closer to the weekend! I always wish our work weeks were two days and our weekends were 5 days! Now that makes sense!! :) I had an awesome weekend. I loved the fireworks and time to hang out with friends and family. Yesterday, I went swimming for the first time this summer! Awesome! We also had slow cooked ribs & homemade mac n cheese & baked potatoes! Then I took a nice little nap. Pretty much the perfect day.
So, last week I told you I sang at the Diamond Awards in Branson. It was hilarious...but a good experience. The Diamond Awards are for the Branson Gospel Music Convention. And basically to be in the audience you had to be 75 or older! haha! We had a good time. I am the third from the left. Our group from church doesn't sing gospel music usually...we were the opening guest performers! lol! I got some SWEET hot pink heels for the awards. We had to wear black, white and pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. So, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get some pink shoes. They were really high so I was very worried about keeping my balance while singing. I was successful though...and didn't even bobble!
This is one of my bestest friends Kim! She also sings in our group. It was fun getting ready. We also managed to make it to Starbucks to get a frappe before the show! :) Very important.
Oh...and I thought I would show off the giveaway I won from Stephanie over at The Crimson Owl! Excited is an understatement when I opened my adorable package! It was super cute. I have already worn the hair clip and earrings several times. My hubby thought it was funny that I got a random gift in the mail...he just doesn't get it! :) Anyways...thank you sooooo much Stephanie! It made my week!
I hope everyone has a lovely, joy-filled day! My heart is so full and I am just so thankful for many many things! God is good!
With Love,
Amanda
