Ladies Day Out in Edmond, OK

A few weeks ago I invited all of the church ladies to go on a trip to Edmond, OK.  The plan was to eat at Inspirations Tea Room and shop at "The Market" (west of Quail Springs Mall).  Counting me, eight ladies were able to attend the fun event.  We left out bright and early this morning, pleased with the cooler day and the overcast skies, but also pleased to be spending a day together as Christian sisters.  We decided it would be fun to wear hats for the lunch.
If you ever visit Edmond, Inspirations Tea Room is a must.  The meal begins with scones served with lemon curd.  Delicious!
 This is my plate.  I ordered what they call a "trio".  It included a sandwich, a salad, and a cup of soup.  The plate is beautiful, as you can see!  It comes with a fresh flower and a scripture.  Mine said:  "A friend loves at all times." Proverbs 17:17.  What a fitting scripture for our day out together!  We all had different scriptures and took the time to read them out loud one at a time.
Hot tea is a specialty at the tea room.  There must be at least 30 flavors to choose from.  I chose caramel creme brulee'.  Yum!  I also chose a flavored vanilla iced tea.  It was great, too!
My choice for dessert was coconut cake. Everything is pleasing to the eye and to the taste buds!
Others got chocolate cake.....
....and an interesting dessert I'd never heard of:  Pineapple Banana Cobbler.  They said it was good, but very rich!
This is me outside on the patio of the tea room.  The overcast skies made a perfect day for pictures.  My eyes are open!  That's a rare thing!
 Another beautiful picture of the patio.  A bed & breakfast called Two Hearts Inn is connected to the back of the tea room.

We decided Sarah looked like she should have attended the royal wedding!  Her hat looked great on her!

After the special day, we've decided that this trip should become an annual event - or maybe even more often.  It's great to be able to get together as friends.  It's great to be able to slow down a bit and not rush, rush, rush!  It's a blessing to spend time with Christian sisters.

Sounds like you all had a good time! It's funny how I don't even think about doing those things much anymore. It's just fun to go somewhere different once in a while!
