Chateau on the Lake

This weekend I attended the Arkansas Optometric Association Fall meeting in Branson, MO, btw I have no idea when their state meeting was in another state. But it was a lot of fun after I finished driving, nearly made myself sick from all the ups and downs and winding roads. I got to meet some ODs from the state, get wined & dined and even do a little shopping with some of my best girlfriends at one of the outlet malls & did pretty well, if you are reading this mom I didn't spend my money foolishly :) I only invested money into things that I really need...

The conference was at Chateau on the Lake and boy did we have a gorgeous view! Here are some pictures out of our hotel balcony overlooking Table Rock lake.

When I woke up Saturday morning the fog had not lifted yet, it was so pretty!

I was fortunate enough to even have my trip overlap with Laura's anniversary trip. Here is a picture from our short time together at Marble Slab with Barrett, such a cutie!
I took a different route home and hoped not to toss my cookies, it was a much better drive, more straight and I could drive faster too :) As a bonus Kendra and I followed each other for about half of my drive. Here is a picture when we stopped off just north of Conway, AR.

Laura said...

Barrett looks hillarious in that picture :) A little like a stoner!

It was so good to see you and finally meet Kendra...although I felt like I already knew her. She is so sweet. I'm glad you have such great friends to keep you company while you're away. Miss you!
