M - I - crooked letter - crooked letter - I (and so on)

The first weekend in February we went to Oxford, MS (home of Ole Miss) for guest worship/special music at Oxford University UMC.

Luckily, it wasn't a long drive (like 5 hours maybe).  Because the day we needed to leave we woke up to this:

Thank goodness we were able to wait for the roads to clear up.

For those of you that don't know, I used to live in Southaven, MS (which is basically Memphis).  We drove through there on our way to Oxford.  I had to document.  Crazy how I was able to recall where things were.  For example, I pointed out the Wal-Mart, Target and Starbucks.  You know, the important spots.  

We got to our destination (a guest house close to the church) and found some snacks and a sweet note!  I just love the people we meet.  See that pink box?

It was filled with these.  You may know that I've been gluten-free since September.  I'll cheat occasionally, but when I do I can tell a significant difference in the way I feel.  But, like I told Trent, sometimes you just have to say yes to gluten and deal with it in the morning.  And y'all?  I'm so glad I did.  Best. Pastries. Ever.  

The sweet couple that brought us to Oxford, Allyson and Eddie, took us to dinner that night for some GREAT sushi at Toyo.  Here we are posing with their four adorable kids.  Well behaved, quiet, polite, home-schooled, considerate, smart, helpful, loving children.  AND they eat sushi rolls and black olives and drink water.  I mean, HELLO!!! Sign me up!  (Aren't they precious?) 

We loved meeting everyone at OU-UMC!  Such sweet people.  Here's Eddie and Trent taking about stuff and things and whatnot.

Allyson, me, Trent and Eddie.  We also get to be with them later in the month when we go back to Mississippi for a Wesley Foundation College Retreat.  We're super excited!

After church they took us to South Depot Taco Shop, where we ate our faces off.  I stuffed mine with Korean Pork and Memphis Pork.  What can I say?  I like the pig.  So, you can say, I pigged out.    

And I got some more baby time.

I could eat her up.
