The drive up to Fredericksburg, which I now know is in the hill country, was absolutely gorgeous!! Now, I must admit that I am a bit partial to the south east mountains and trees but the hill country sure put up a good fight. The scenery was simply breath taking this time of year and there were many times I wanted to pull over and just wonder around and enjoy nature! I really wish i would have looking back on it!! I arrived 30 minutes early, that could have been 30 minutes wondering in the wilderness!!! I have discovered that I have a scardy cat inquisitive nature! I have all these adventurous thoughts in my head but I am a chicken and never do them unless someone makes me do them...and usually no one knows my weird thoughts unless I share them...which is rare... Anways!! I have a fascination for road side stores with fruit and small town cafes. There were so many on the way down, I almost stopped many times! But..as we have already discussed, my scardy cat nature gave in and therefore I am fruitless, cafeless, and still natureless : ( Since then I have decided a good spontaneous, plan free road trip is in order!! Someday....someday oh adventurous alison...you will get to explore..
In memory of my almost adventurous weekend, I have decided to be cRaAazZZy this week ( well crazy for me...). So Christine and I began with none other than: golden corral for dinner!! I haven't been there since I first moved to Texas in 6th grade. I remember my mom and I had never heard of a golden corral so we tried it and ended up eating there about once a week. Then my dad finally moved out and joined us in our house and told us we couldn't eat there anymore...something about sketchy company?? I was quite disappointed because I could get just as much dinner there as dessert and mom never seemed to notice!! *score!* So that is my past history of the great GC ( golden corral for you newbies), and tonight Christine and I began a new future of GCing. We paid 10 dollars for unlimited plates of every kind of food imaginable! I mean where else can you eat steak, a fajita, fried catfish, and borbourn chicken all in the same place!?!? So after three plates of food and plenty of dessert we bounced! Although I must say, there was a large amount of sweet old black ladies there who were headed to church afterwards, and I just loved them! I love how excited they get for church and how they would worship all day if they could!!! Christine and I have decided to visit one Sunday night soon....I can't wait! In addition to our snazzy dinner, we have decided to go on a luxurious run through the cemetery this wednesday afternoon with Sawyer! Apparently it's pretty, according to the all knowing source caitlin, and I am looking forward to it!! Soo I just can't wait to see what this week has in store with a start like this!!
Well I have procrastinated enough...but I must admit life is just too good not to blog about : ) Therefore I have two sunshine's of the day:
Sunshine of the Day (1): Seeing Jesus work in the kiddos at IMPACT was just stinking incredible!!! Our God is SOOOOOOO totally my sunshine : )
Sunshine of the Day (2): Getting to talk with my best friend and boyfriend for hours in the car today on the drive back!!! I am so blessed with such great people in my life!!! God is the best provider ever!!!
