TOFW = Time Out For Women

I got to have a great weekend with some great women.  I have only been to one other TOFW event probably 9 years ago.  I was so glad to go again.

The theme for this year's event was - Seek the Good!  What a great thought to consider and apply in one's life.  The speakers and the music used this to base their remarks around.  It was very uplifting and inspiring.  It is good to feed one's soul!  There's so much I could share about the talks given and what I felt.  I think I will save it for a future post.

We got to start the weekend at the Orlando temple.  The traffic was outrageous - add to that construction zones and an accident.  It took us an hour longer to arrive.  We didn't get to do all we had planned at the temple but still was grateful for the short time we spent there.
 We had dinner that night at TGIF's.  I had the Parmesan Crusted Chicken - A sautéed chicken breast basted with Caesar Vinaigrette dressing, then finished with a Parmesan crust topping. Served with three-cheese tortelloni tossed in spinach Alfredo sauce and a side of our fresh tomato mozzarella salad. Wouldn't be complete without a little Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie - Chocolate ganache layered with peanut butter mousse in a peanut butter graham cracker crust. Topped with whipped cream and a peanut butter cup. 
 Great food.  Great women.  Great friends.
 Here's Dana Shaw trying to figure out how to upload our photo to the TOFW on Facebook.
 Here's Marji Winder trying to do the same.
 Here they both are trying to help each other.

 I was taking these few pictures and then a lady behind us in the line for lunch offered to take our picture with us all together.  Thank you Nicole for lending me your black flip flops to wear since I forgot to pack mine.

I guess I've been gone a LONG time! I don't think I recognize anyone but you in those pictures. :( Glad you had a fun time. I had wanted to go, but am glad I didn't--I ended up in bed all weekend with strep! Maybe next time...
