3 Random thoughts...

I know I've not mentioned anything here but in a week I will be attending the Influence Conference just down the road... to say I am excited is a bit of an understatement!  I mean how often is it that you can come together with such a diverse group of ladies with one thing in common... a desire to truly be an influence for the Lord.

My sweet "lil" Lily and me... umm no she isn't sitting.  That's my sweet moose of puppy! The only other girl in the house!  

So in an effort to get to know each other just a little better a "meet and greet" of sorts is being hosted...   
3 random facts of sorts.

Random fact #1:
While dating Chris I made a statement that I would never date a guy that was 19 again as they were too immature and it just wasn't worth the hassle.. he just nodded his head and didn't really comment.  Little did I know that he WAS 19, that's what I got for asking his roommate how old he was.  It was another couple of months later when I discovered how young he was... mmm yeah it was too late by then!  (for the record I'm 5 years older than my husband... he never did act like the "typical" 19 year old!)

Random fact #2:
I am not known for having much fashion sense... in fact I usually have to ask one of the boys what they think.  My favorite outfits nowadays usually includes slightly flared jeans, a beige or black t-shirt, pukka shell necklace or a leather thong necklace plus a scarf and birkenstocks.  If I thought I could get away with a cute skirt and long boots I would so do it!  In all honesty I love skirts but haven't found any recently that were flattering... in fact up until 3 years ago I had not worn jeans or pants of any sorts in 15 years.  My husband bought me a pair of jeans because he said my skirts were frumpy.... all time favorite outfit would be tall boots w/ socks peeking over the top, a skirt just below my knees, a t-shirt and scarf but I can't find boots to fit my chunky calves.  yep i'm curvy... and short! (and maybe just a few years too old for this look.. haha!)

Random fact #3:
I love chocolate but not Hershey's.  it tastes like chocolate flavored paraffin to me... i was spoiled by have good chocolate as a child when we lived in Germany however we now live near an aldi which sells imported chocolate for cheap.  delicious!

As a kid I secretly hoped to have braces, break my leg so I could use crutches, and wear glasses... I had braces, used crutches for an injured knee (what was i thinking on that one) and may get my wish for glasses soon (umm yeah.. what was i thinking??? i'll find out tomorrow....

Have a wonderful day and I so look forward to meeting all those who will be in attendance!


  1. Oh my gosh, I totally wished for braces as a kid too! I used to put twizzlers over my teeth to pretend! then I had them for real....for YEARS...and it didn't seem so cool anymore.

    Looking forward to meeting you!

  2. I am so excited for you and know you are going to be truly Blessed and have an awesome time!
