Ben's Birthday Weekend

Last weekend we traveled to Lexington for the Bama game and to celebrate Ben's birthday. We drove up Friday night and arrived to the Horse Capital just a little passed my bed time.
Ben was so excited to be in the horse capitol that he took a little pre-birthday ride.

We scored a pretty nice deal on a Holiday Inn Express on hotels.com. We weren't expecting anything fancy (just clean) but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to our destination. Not too bad for a HIExpress. It just opened in March 2009, so the newness had not worn off yet.

Saturday morning we headed to Commonwealth Stadium to see the Tide show UK how football is played! It was absolutely perfect weather. Mid 60's and clear skies. That's what I call Football Weather!

We were able to get right up on the field before the game and watch the players warm up.
Coach Saban wasn't cooperating with us for a photo opp.

The Kentucky fans decided not to stick around to watch us beat them. They seemed to lose interest after the basketball team left?

After the game we went back to our room to take a a quick nap and freshen up for a night out on the town.

We celebrated Ben's birthday at DeSha's restaurant in downtown Lexington. It really is a beautiful city and the sites from our upstairs window-side table were quite nice.

Sunday we met my parents at Keeneland Horse Track. Keeneland doesn't open until this weekend, but the grounds were beautiful!We also drove to the the legendary castle Lee Majors bought for Farah Fawcett.

And we saw some of the beautiful horse farms in the area.

Mom and Dad took us out to lunch and then we headed back to Sweet Home Alabama. It was a nice little get away and the Tide brought us a "W" for our efforts! Roll Tide Roll!

Indescribable

I know this is an old one, but these words are ringing in my head the past few days.

From the highest of highs
to the depth of the sea
Creations revealing your majesty.

From the colors of fall
to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings.
All exclaiming...

Indescribable!
Uncontainable!
You placed the stars in the sky and you know them by name.
You are amazing God!

All powerful!
Untameable!
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim.

You are amazing God!
You are amazing God!

Who told every lightning bolt where it should go?
Or seen heavenly store houses laden with snow?
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night?
None can fathom!


Indescribable!
Uncontainable!
You placed the stars in the sky and you know them by name.

All powerful!
Untameable!
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim.

You are amazing God!
You are amazing God!

Incomparable!
Unchangeable!
You see the depth of my soul and love me the same.
You are AMAZING God!
You are AMAZING God.

Moving On Up...

the hallway that is.

I recently moved 2 doors down to an office with the exact same layout and dimensions as my old one. However, this gave me the opportunity to choose a new paint color and floor plan. I forgot to take before pics but just imagine a room full of junk with navy blue and cream walls.


The new wall color isn't nearly as bright as it appears in the photos.





This is the view I have from my desk chair.
