oh, how i've missed you. and i want a bra that grows rice.

blog lovies!  gosh, i have missed you all so much.  this has been the most insane week for me, mainly all work related but some personal stuff thrown in.  last night i was asked to speak at a women's ministry event at my church and give my testimony.  it was one of the hardest, yet most freeing experiences of my life.  God really blessed that event last night in a big way and it was an incredibly special night for my mom and i.  one of my best friends, tara (thank you so much for coming, tara!  i love you!), and of course, quasi, came.  quasi has to come up with an excuse to buy me a present for everything, so he got me a new digital camera.  it's the samsung tl220, in case you're wondering.  i'll tell you how much i love it when i get to using it more.

i promise to be back in the game soon.  in the meantime, here's something that i really, really want: a rice-growing bra.  ( <--- click on the hyperlink.)
and i'll also be back with a story involving a DIY nightmare, a panic attack, and pictures of quasi.  get excited.

About time you checked in Missy! I was getting worried about you. And then your Mom. And then your dog. I imagined all sorts. Don't do that again please. xo

I just sent you an email wondering where you were! Good to know everything's ok! Sounds like you've got some great posts coming...I am excited!

Rice growing bra!? What will they think of next!?

I'm glad you're here and ok. We missed you! And of course I can always get excited for a good story about a panic attack!

Okay, that bra thing is WEIRD.

Glad you're still alive and well, friend! Can't wait to hear all your good stories... :)

There's gonna be bugs involved in that...which I want nowhere NEAR my boobs.

Becky said...

I'm sure your testimony touched many people...I don't know if I would be brave enough to stand up in front of people and give mine and have fun with your new camera I expect to see lots of pictures in the near future!

Cee said...

If quasi buys you a present a present for everything maybe he should be more than quasi! haha...in all seriousness, congrats on giving your testimony, I'm sure you did great!

Bathwater said...

I thought you worked yourself to death!

It might be worth buying you one of those bras just for the picture. Put it on Quasi's list.

Hutch said...

Oh I'm excited!

Welcome back, I was starting to get worried!

I think it's fab that you were able to get up and tell your story! I can't witness worth beans (or rice) and I can't share testimony without sound like a dork.

My silly work computer wont let me get through on the link - boo. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Mrs. Lovely said...

I like rice and all, but not sure I'd want to grow some on my chest, haha.

Dammit Mer Bear. You have been scaring the bejeebies outta everyone for disappearing on us.

And you are so spoiled by quasi. Surfer needs to take a note or two on this.

Sounds like the event at your church was great all round.

Glad to see you back.. sort of.. Not sort of glad, but you're sort of back is what I meant. Looking forward to the nightmare tale. I love a good nightmare story.
