First I want to start by asking you all to visit this blog and pray for this sweet family and their little girl. They need your prayers and their faith and story is very touching.
Okay, now onward. I have to say I've become addicted to reading people's blogs. My friends, strangers, random people I know....they're all great!!! Which makes me think of how freaking boring mine are! I mean honestly, mine aren't funny, they don't teach you anything or show off my trade (you wouldn't want to see it). Nothing...my blog offers you me, whatever mood that may be. So this is just a note to self and to you, I will try to be more entertaining!! Please bare with me as that might be a while.
My boyfriend, Jake, is a wonderful man who also happens to be very busy around this time of year. Why? Because he is an accountant....correction an auditor. Which means that he is in what they call "busy" season. Busy season breaks down like this, boyfriend works entirely too much and too late so you sit at home bored but can usually get a lot done, on days when there isn't too much to do you're just bored, you have plenty of time to be alone or spend time with your girlfriends, but basically you're single for about 3 months AND the best part is that after busy season we usually get to go on some fun vacation!!
Our latest vacation which was in May was spent at a place close to my home of Mena. Yes we were in the big, huge town of Glenwood! Whoa, exciting vacation I know. But the thing is that it was exciting. We rented a cabin which was really nice, it had a dipping pool and big deck. We cooked some great meals and watched some horrible movies. And best of all we went canoing on the one day it decided to rain like crazy!! SWEET! So we bought some poncho's at the Dollar store and had to literally convince the man to let us canoe since the water had risen 2 feet above it's normal level. The man running the place asked if we were experienced. So finally he's convinced and shuttles us to where we are going to put in....I have to tell you once I saw how fast the water was running compared to a normal canoe trip, I almost backed out, but nope in we went. So since we were the ONLY people on the river that day we had the whole thing to ourselves and we had a blast!!! The few people hanging out on their porches that day thought we were probably the craziest people around. Nope, we just like an adventure. So, here are some pictures of our vacation adventure. I hope you enjoy!
