Friday Bullets

  • Happy Friday!
  • All week, I've been thinking it's one day and it's really another. 
  • Like on Tuesday, I was convinced it was Monday and was pleasantly surprised when I was wrong.
  • Maybe my little getaway to see my mom last weekend had something to do with it.
  • But honestly, I seriously think that trip carried me through this week.
  • We shopped, we ate, we shopped some more, and we pampered ourselves --- all so needed!
  • But the goodbye part is never fun and before I got on the plane, we were already planning my next visit.
  • In other news, have you heard about the Influence Network?
  • I first heard about it after their first conference last September, when my Twitter feed was all abuzz with the amazing things that were happening there.  
  • Well, this week, the Influence Network announced their annual conference information and I haven't stopped thinking about it all week.
  • I've never been to a conference and to be honest, the idea of going by myself makes me beyond nervous, yet something in my heart is telling me to go-go-go!
  • Tickets don't go on sale until next month, so my plan is to spend the month praying about whether I should attend or not.
  • Any words of encouragement for those who have attended conferences like this one would be very welcome :)
  • Lately, my Google Reader has been full of posts I feel like have been written just for me.
  • A couple from this week include:
    • Lindsey from The Kubly Girl's posts are something I look forward to each week because I really feel like we have a lot in common.  This week, she wrote about being an introvert and it hit home for me.  She's hosting an online class this month on this topic and I can't wait to hear what she has to say!
    • Rhi from Rhi in Pink (the one I got 'Friday Bullets' from in the first place) posted recently about trusting your instincts when it comes to parenting and while I don't have a child at home at this time, I felt like it was good information for any aspect of life.  I'm a firm believer that your first instincts are usually correct.

So, how's your week been?


  1. So glad you had a great trip!

    I love your baby girl's slideshow. Admittedly, I have to come back to it. I only made it part way through without losing it. So touching.

  2. Thanks for the shout-out Meaghan! I have my hopes up that we'll meet in September. I'm so glad you had a lovely visit with your mom.
