Retreat, Retreat!

I am heading out tomorrow for the women's retreat. Yes, the women of Palm Valley will descend upon the city of Scottsdale in a swarm of Fuscia (100 of us will have matching tee shirts for the occasion.) and it should be a blast if last year's retreat is any comparison. I am really looking forward to it.

My good friend Brooke S (not to be confused with my other good friend Brooke F who happens to be in Ethiopia right now) has been heading up the planning for the retreat and has done an awesome job. When we were in a meeting with some ladies who will be small group leaders at the retreat Brooke cracked me up while making a comment about how the tee shirts will be so great for bonding because, "You know when you're out and you see someone wearing the same shirt you have you think, Yea, there's my peeps."

I had to hold back laughter as hard as a could as I scanned the room of women 10 or more years older than me and Brooke. All of them were looking sorta confused by the expression "there's my peeps." I wondered to myself if they were picturing the fuscia Easter candy chick peeps.

Yesterday as I was out shopping the Lord blessed me and caused my hands to fall upon a shirt that had a chick on it which said "Where my peeps at?" I thought it could be destiny and when Dustin agreed we realized that Brooke is the rightful owner of that shirt... she just doesn't know it yet. Unfortunately, it's brown with gold writing so she may never wear it in public but I KNOW Brooke will love it. I plan to present her with the tee when she drops her kids by for me to babysit this afternoon. Maybe I can get her to pose for a pic just for fun. If I can I will add it to the bottom of this post.

Look for pictures of the retreat to follow (if i can take a break from all the fun long enough to remember to use my camera... we PVC ladies know how to PARTY! ;)

**** Update: Brooke loved the tee shirt and proclaimed that she will be wearing it tomorrow on the first day of the retreat. I didn't take a photo because I will get one of her at the actual retreat and post it later.
