Well, folks, I'm back in Oklahoma City for an extended period of time! After 2 weeks of traveling for work and fun, my office is a mess, my apartment (that I moved into over 2 weeks ago) remains largely unpacked and I haven't seen some of my OKC friends for weeks! Weeks!

(<---- Me and Jamie J!)

This past week (Wednesday-Sunday), 2 adult leaders from my church and myself were able to attend the National Lutheran Youth Workers Conference in Orlando, Florida. It was a blast. So, in keeping with tradition, here are the highlights of the trip

*One of the best things about the trip was getting to spend lots of time with my DCE classmates. The first and last night of the conference, we all sat around and talked for a few hours about joys and concerns of ministry, our personal lives, related funny stories about church life and generally just got caught up. I got to see my former suite-mate, the now Mrs. Dave Timmerman whom I hadn't seen since Midyear and since Marriage. I also got to see Tara Brune, whom I think is just fantastic.

*Seeing my adults get fired up about the National Gathering. I think they were able to get a little taste of what's going to happen in Orlando next year for 37,000 youth.

*Starfield and Fusebox as the bands for the weekend. They were awesome. I heart Fusebox (who was the house band at the last gathering) and now I heart Starfield.

*National News with Jeffrey Meinz. Trust me, this was hilarious.

*These Guys.

*Seeing Blanke and Moulds! My two favorite Concordia Professors!

(<---- Us and Blanke. His comment "I've never been surrounded by so many women before")

*Wednesday Night's Reunion slash Birthday Party. I have not laughed that hard... since... well, Rachel's wedding weekend. After the reunion/birthday party we went to the mall, got some dinner, Spode tried sushi and then we all hung out at the fabulous Wyndham Orlando Resort hotel pool.

*Sleepovers. Spode and I were roommates, so we had some good late night chats about boys and life.

*Dinner with the Griffins, whom I hadn't seen since 1996- back in my OAFC-ing days. It was fun to catch up with all of them.

Those are the highlights. More later this week!

I made the blog... I made the blog... Hannah it was great to see you this past week and I love that we are peers and friends in ministry. I also think you should know that I think you are pretty fantastic yourself. God's blessings in all you do. I hope that your summer finished up well and that your new school year brings you many blessings and wonderful surprises. I love you!
