This was a fun weekend that I had been looking forward to for a while. We had our Ladies Retreat for church. For the first time in a couple of years I was able to spend the night. Last year, Clark was still a baby so I went up for the day, but there's something extra fun about getting away for the whole night. 

Here are Brody and Scarlett sending us off. (don't know what is up with Brody's hair)
Jaime was in charge of the decorations so we got to go up early and help her out
The finished product. The theme was "The fragrance of Christ" and the eucalyptus was really fragrant! :)

Jaime and Mom
Jaime also made all these lavender sachets for all the ladies. They were placed in our rooms to greet us when we arrived.
the hotel attempted to fold the towels into swans...this one looks a little sick-ha!
I can't believe I didn't get any pictures of our roomies Jenn and Lisa. Poor Lisa was a bit under the weather and went to bed early, and I guess we were too busy eating and talking to take pictures with Jenn. 
The retreat was in Fredericksburg. On Saturday I didn't take many pictures, probably because we were SO sleepy from staying up late and chatting (it's one of the best parts of the retreat...the fellowship!) When the retreat was over, we ate at THE BEST restaurant for lunch and then did some shopping. I hit the jackpot at a darling store called Beulah's and got some cute outfits for Scarlett. 
And how can you not go to Fredericksburg without hitting up Circle E for some candles?!
We had a great time and I am so thankful that there are ladies willing to put so much effort into a retreat so that we can get away to worship, fellowship and EAT together :)
Brody and the kids had a great time, too, and I am also really thankful to him for coming home early from work to play Mr. Mom. He did a great job~

You look so absolutely darling in your scarf. I love it! Sounds like a wonderful weekend. Jamie is such a gem decorating and crafting. Sounds like an Elam girls craft weekend is a must. :)

I had basically the same post so I went back and edited mine a little. It was a fun weekend. I am so glad you could stay the WHOLE time this year! Already looking forward to next year!
