Thankful....for Women and Target!

Yay, it's Friday!! What a week! I was so glad to be done with work at a decent time today. I went to hang out with Brett for a bit before meeting up with the girls for our Friday night plans.

Reality hosted a Women's Worship Night at the Ventura campus tonight. I was thrilled that we were able to get a group of the girls rounded up to make the trip together. Amy drove so all of us could actually drive together too!! So, we all packed in, and made out way towards Ventura.

We had to get some food in our tummies. We stuffed ourselves silly at Baja Fresh first! So good! :)

The evening at Reality was better than I could have imagined. The worship was wonderful and it was so great to be there praising our Lord with so many other God fearing women. I usually get overwhelmed during worship, to where I can't continue singing, and it happened again tonight. At one point, I looked around and it was just so powerful to be there, with almost the whole room full of women, all singing, worshipping as one.

The note from the church said to bring snacks. Whoa, did the women follow that suggestion!! There were more goodies there than you could believe!! I couldn't believe that I still had room in my tummy after dinner....but I managed to get down a brownie and part of a pumpkin cookie too!! Geez!!!

After the service was over.....we stuck around in Ventura for a little fun. TARGET!!! We managed to find the two story one, and it was so great!! I haven't been to a Target in I can't remember how long.

I had written up a small list of things before hand....and I surprisingly enough didn't stray too much from it. But, I think that we had more fun just playing around and killing time.

Who doesn't love putting on funny sunglasses??

And funny hats too? Do you only have to be cold to wear warm hats?

We had a lot of fun going all through the different departments! I was totally shocked that with everything that ended up in my basket, I was still under $100!! Woohoo!!! Reason for celebrating for sure! :)

I couldn't be more thankful for the wonderful women in my life in Santa Barbara. I sat there tonight and thanked God for putting each and every one of them in my life. I look forward to more shared memories with all of these women - worshipping and shopping alike! :)
