Well, I returned from my Thanksgiving Texas trek to a whole new season. The cold weather has arrived, and I'm freezing. All of my winter clothes were way too big, so I gave them away last spring and now I don't have many things to keep me warm. My first winter purchase was a coat. This coat actually:

Pretty cute huh. Target baby.

My Thanksgiving was wonderful! I went down to San Antonio to meet up with the rest of my family. I was in charge of the sweet potatoes which totally stressed me out. I was very concerned that I would mess them up, and you know people can't help but judge you when you make bad food. So the pressure was on. I guess they turned out okay. On Friday we went to Fredricksburg to look around and celebrate my brother's birthday. I loved all the little shops, but the place was packed. And the weird thing was that a lot of people were walking around with their dogs. Like dogs want to go shopping. Anyways, I was really sad to come home on Saturday, but I guess all good things must come to an end.

So, here's a funny story that would only happen to a minister. Every week I work really hard to find enough stuff to put in our weekly bulletin. I never have enough stuff to fill up our pages. So, the week after I got back from the youth conference, I put the picture of me and David Crowder in the youth pages. I thought the kids would get a kick out of it. Above the picture were the words Sue & David Crowder. Well, since that Sunday I've had at least 20 people ask me if I had gotten married. Seriously. I also have had several people tell me that other people had asked them if I'd gotten married. Our preacher thought he was a homeless man. So, I guess I'm the only person in Kansas who knows who David Crowder is. Also, no more pictures of myself in the bulletin.

I can't believe no one knew David Crowder... actually I can. Oh, the midwest... :) I love that people thought you got married in a t-shirt, and with no big announcement. Who would do that?? I'm glad you enjoyed Thanksgiving. When do you come for Christmas?? I need my Sue fix!

Oh yeah, and Bravo that none of your clothes fit!!!!

Don't worry, there are at least two. He actually played at K-State several weeks ago.

Ha! I love it! Of course they thought you got married. :) Next time you should put a picture of a cuter guy in there, though ... that way people don't feel sorry for you that you married a homeless man.

Cute coat!! Skinny butt. Are you having fun shopping for a whole new wardrobe or is it just exhausting!?! (I think that would make me very tired. Very happy. But very tired.)

Love you! Hoping I get my Sue fix, too.

That coat is too cute! I'm not gonna lie, I have a bit of a coat obsession! :)

And the David Crowder story is hilarious!
