Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

at a dairy queen in coleman.

this weekend, my mom and i were in san angelo for a baby shower friday night and my sister-in-law's bridal shower on saturday afternoon. both were absolutely wonderful, and i'll fill you in on the details soon.

it took forever to get back yesterday because of the weather, though we never had problems with ice. it was raining most of the way, and, rightly so, most everyone was being super cautious - including us. we finally made it in though, and i really feel like my weekend should be starting now, but i have to go to work in a couple minutes.

anyway... we were in coleman, texas stopping for a potty break and buying a blizzard (yeah, i don't know. ice cream when it's 29 out...) at one point during the trip. everybody knew everybody in there except for us, and i have a quote to sum up the whole experience:

(imagine in the thickest west texas accent)

"i've been lookin' for you! i want to show you my new baby; he'll be seven months in the mornin'. we've been married nearly two weeks! named him ashton douglas - looks just like michael did."

the girl looked like she couldn't have been more than 17.

it was amusing, to say the least.

ahh.. little towns in the middle of no where. love it.
