Friday morning a group of ladies from my church loaded up in various vehicles and headed to Little Rock for a day of shopping, eating, and fun. First stop was the Longhorn Steakhouse, where I indulged on the Redrock Grilled Shrimp. It was delicious. It came complete with rice and a side of the most amazing butter sauce in the world (not exactly on my low-carb diet, but oh well).
Afterwards, our pastor's wife (who happens to be Hubby's aunt) introduced us to shopping at Gordman's. I'd never heard of Gordman's, but it reminds me of a TJ Maxx type place. I found a ton of things I wanted, but came out with two new shirts and a cute cardigan.
I also crossed the parking lot and ran into JC Penny's so I could grab some face wash at Sephora. The ladies there were super cool and introduced me to a new moisturizer as well (there's a beauty series coming to the blog soon, so I'll tell you about them later).
Then we headed to the middle of nowhere for the Ladies' Spectacular. This was my sixth (?) year to attend this event, and I am always so amazed at the amount of work that goes into welcoming the ladies that arrive.
This year's theme was "Under Construction" and each of the speakers talked to us about ways that we are still under construction. I really enjoyed the session on marriage, as well as an unbelievable testimony from a lady who was kidnapped and lived to tell us how good God is to her.
The keynote speaker talked about the different types of sins we have in our lives and how to overcome them. Everyone was so amazing, and I came home refreshed and renewed. And I'm already looking forward to next year's event. It's going to be western themed and I'm wearing my boots!!
