Ladies Tea at Bethany

Last weekend I attended a Ladies Tea at church.  It was so much fun and a bigger blessing than I was anticipating.  That kind of sounds bad, but I'll admit that I didn't really want to go at first.  But that changed when I was specifically invited to join a table.  It turns out different ladies were hosting tables.  They decorated the tables for us and everything was at the table for us to eat.  Catered food from a local restaurant (the name is completely escaping me right now).  A great talk from Sandi Miller.  Wonderful fellowship with other ladies.  Here is our table:
We were in the back corner because of some technical snafus, but it turned out to be a blessing when we started taking pictures.
Here we are holding our birds that were our gifts from Jody.  We took several serious/smiling pictures but then Brittany wanted us to pose with our birds.  So we did.  If you look in the background, Kelly is speaking at the podium.  She had just started talking when we started grabbing our birds and we really wanted this picture, so we continued to pose while she introduced the next portion of the afternoon. We are such rebels for not sitting down right away! :)

I say it all the time, but I am so blessed by my church.  The women who put this event together did a FANTASTIC job and I am so glad I got over my initial hesitancy and decided to go.  Even though tea and fru-fru food is not my thing.  I enjoyed my lemonade.  And the fru-fru stuff was really good!
