Straight on toward morning

This past weekend, the fairy dust took me to East Texas, where I taught a women's retreat. You know, at first, I wasn't too excited about the topic, the Bride of Christ, but in preparation, I discovered all the love, hope, and unity, not just between the Church (the bride) and Christ, but between members of the Church, and it moved and inspired me. God worked this weekend, as He loves to do when we open up our hearts. For those of you who were praying, thank you.
This Friday, the fairy dust will take me to Chicago and Indiana, first to spend the weekend with fellow Misfits, Michelle, Jen, and Jenny, writing and laughing and then laughing some more, then to spend time with my bestest friend in the world (yes, my BFF), who moved to Chicago back in August. We'll see Wicked, watch fireworks on the Navy Pier, drink lots of coffee, eats lots of toffee, go to the Art Institute, stay up way too late, drink more coffee, and chat until we lose our voices. All in all, good times, good times.
So don't expect much from the blogging Heather. She'll be too hyped on coffee! But I will let you in on this secret: the Misfits are starting a group blog, and we launch next week. If it's half as fun as the people themselves, you're in for a riot (not the L.A. type). More on that later.

You have fun, and say "hi" to the Misfitinas from me. You can also say "hi" to your best friend from me, but she doesn't know me, so that could be slightly awkward. I recommend that you say it, then kind of laugh nervously and do a little tap dance to fill the awkward moment, then reach in your bag and say, "Toffee?"

(I've noticed quite a bit of fairy dust floating around here lately. Have you been hanging out with Rae?)

Can't wait for you to get here. I loaded up on snacks at the store today. We gotta eat while we're talking, right?

Yea--Wicked! Be sure to post your thoughts. I am quite sure you will love it and be able to wax more eloquently than I have about it ("Oh, it was so good. Oh, I really loved it" is all I've been able to manage).
