Sometimes I don't like myself!

Are you like that too?

Please say yes!

Today was the Harmony Association's( the group of Southern Baptist Churches in Jefferson and Lincoln counties) first ladies conference. I was asked along with 3 other preachers wives (Rachel, Melissa, and Stephanie) to coordinate this event. We thought the most that we would have this year would be 150. But 220 signed up and came!

It was great! Lots of women, lots of hairspray, lots of cute shoes, and lots of laughter. Lots of music, lots of fellowship, and lots of Jesus!

Lisa McKay was our speaker. She flew in on Friday and flew out this afternoon. It was my job to get her to the airport. And I did.

And then I left.

And she didn't.

Apparently they wouldn't let her board because it was less than 30 minutes until takeoff. It was 27 minutes until takeoff!

We missed it by 3 minutes!

3 MINUTES!!!

And I LEFT her!!!

Seriously, I was given charge by my fellow preachers wives to get this darn cute preachers wife back home, and I didn't do it.

I'm hoping she got some good airport food and a starbucks to make her smile.

Its almost midnight and I'm still awake, I just found out about this whole fiasco and I may not be able to sleep the rest of the night.

I'll try not to sleep during church tomorrow!

HA!!!

LOL Jules!! I'm HOME!

Please do not fret over the flight..I should have shut my mouth earlier..lol

Seriously, I was out only 15 minutes later and only back home about 45 minutes later than originally planned so no big AT ALL.

What was insane is the flight I was rebooked on was only 15 minutes from my check in time after waiting a sweet forever for the woman to reschedule me. I seriously could have made the first flight easily if they'd have just let me go. Either way, I got to go to Atlanta..didn't even have to change concourses. I got me a fabulous Quizno sandwich, ppl watched and played on the computer.

Girl, can't say enough how much I loved the weekend and becoming real live friends with you all. :) THANK YOU THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of it..!!
