Lighthouse

Friday night, the choir was given the opportunity to lead worship for a special service at Lighthouse Church in Rosemount, MN.  We're a loud, rowdy group as far as church music is concerned (we try to behave ourselves in every other sense).  Every congregation receives us differently.  We've shocked and likely offended a few.  Others just tolerate us.  But more often than not, people love us and our 'joyful noise'.  I can hardly think of a church that loved us more than the sweet people at Lighthouse.  They were so friendly and made us feel right at home.

Check out the denim vest I procured at Valu Thrift last week!  Have you seen the latest Gap ads?  I guess it's all about denim now...denim on denim on denim.  I haven't ventured down that trend path yet, but when I do, I'll have a snazzy denim vest to layer up.  If you couldn't guess...the choir uniform was black and denim.


Friends, I have a serious problem with flats.  I'll probably need to dedicate an entire post to this issue, but I must tell you now, I cannot find a pair of flats that don't literally rub me the wrong way.  These black peep toes are good, quality leather shoes that were originally priced around $80.  No amount of rubbing is acceptable in a pricey pair of shoes.  Flats cause me pain.  I'd like to know why.

As the choir ritual goes, several of us met up for appetizers after the service.  As we were getting ready to leave, I realized that my three girlfriends and I were all wearing bright jackets on top of our black and denim.

A picture of our awesomeness was necessary.

I feel the same way about flats! I thought I was the only one! I keep buying them and then sending them off to Goodwill after they've been in my closet for an appropriate amount of time. It's such a waste but I can't seem to give up the search!

You and Steve look so cute and I LOVE the colorful jackets on my favorite people on earth.

I have been reading your blog for a few months now and I love it. Keep up the good work. I hate flats too. They are extremely uncomfy and I don't think they look good at all on anyone. However knowing your penchant for thrift shopping and reading that they were "originally priced at $80" I guess these are 2nd hand shoes. I dont think shoes are an item that you should buy 2nd hand, I think by the time the person donates them all of what makes a shoes good and worth the "original price" ie support structure etc has been used, perhaps the support is not there anymore. Think about why they were donated in the first place. Its different than a shirt etc. Just something to think about. I would buy less shoes but buy them new. anyway keep up the blogging love it.
