Last night was bunco, and surprise, surprise, I forgot my camera! Well, to be honest, I would have felt a little odd walking in with my camera taking pictures of a bunch of people I don't really know! Ha! They may have thought I was a little nuts! I tied for most wins but we did a roll off (with dice) and I didn't get the high number, so no prize this time!

All in all, I had a good time and met some nice people. I was excited to meet Laurie since I read her blog, and was also excited to learn that some of the ladies that came read mine! I really tried hard to put myself out there and get acquainted with people and most were very responsive. It's hard when you feel like everyone knows everyone and you're the new girl, but how else am I supposed to make new friends?

One sort of funny thing happened - one lady kept inviting me to church and asking if I wanted to attend church activities and I kept telling her that I've gone to that church for 9 years (longer than her!). I don't know if she couldn't hear me or what, but everytime we ended up at the same table she would invite me to church! I just thought that was hilarious! I guess it goes to show how large our church is, because I didn't recognize most of the people (and they didn't recognize me), and I know they are there every Sunday!

Tuesday we leave for Lake Tahoe, my favorite spot on the planet. We usually go a couple of times a year, and I so look forward to those trips. It is such a beautiful spot. Here's a picture from last year:

I'm glad you came! I know it was probably very stressful and hard. I want to just die when I'm in a new group of people - but you did really good!
Hope ya'll have fun in Tahoe!

Have fun in Tahoe and don't forget the camera ;)!!!

I haven't played Bunco in years, but I remember it was a fun game.

I love Lake Tahoe. Hands down, my most favorite place! My husband & I went there for our honeymoon this past November. We'd love to go back one day. I hope you have a great trip.

I'm glad you had a great time. I LOVE bunco :)

The church part was funny church in Houston is pretty big too, so I can understand.

I haven't found a church in Jax that I like yet though.

Have a great time in Tahoe...and don't forget your camera :)

It was nice to meet you at Bunco. Once Brayden & Harper arrive, we'll all have to get together for playdates!

We should be ya'lls friends so we can go on vacation together! We love Lake Tahoe, too! It is Flint's favorite place on the planet- just like you! I would rather be in the Caribbean, but I do LOVE Lake Tahoe! FOr being in the mountains- it is truely wonderful! FLint wants to own a home there one day!!!

By the way, if you are in South Lake Tahoe, eat at Cafe Fiore. If you are staying on the north down and have dinner there but get a reservation! It is one of the BEST places I have ever been- not kidding! I highly recommend the white chocolate homemade ice cream!

I'm glad you had fun at bunco! The story about church is hilarious! I feel like I'm the same way though. We will see people places and Josh will go and talk to them. I will ask him how he knows the person and he always tells me they go to our church! How does that happen?

Have so much fun in Tahoe! And please don't forget to take pictures!!:)
