2013 Scarf Swap

I've participated in a few swaps over the years, but Meredith's annual scarf swap is one I've looked forward to the last couple years.

Sure, I probably don't need another scarf in my closet, but I love the idea of picking out a scarf for someone else and then seeing what they will pick out for me!

So when Meredith posted about this year's swap, I think I might have signed up on the first day :) 

I was assigned to shop for Jenny from Hoesli House and after a few emails back & forth, I felt like we both had a good idea of the style of scarf we generally liked.

I can't wait to see what Jenny thought of her scarf, but I have to say, I was not disappointed when I received mine last week!  Not only had Jenny shopped at one of my favorite stores (Gap), but she picked out a scarf that was different than anything I already owned, yet went with a lot of things in my closet. (I've already worn it once and can't wait to wear it again!)

Thank you for my scarf, Jenny!  And thank you Meredith for hosting the swap for another year!

#InfluenceConf 2013 linkup

When I bought my ticket for the Influence Conference back in April, it felt like it was SO far away.  But here we are, two & half weeks away from and I can hardly believe it's (almost) here!

So to pump myself up a bit, I'm linking up with the Influence Network blog to answer a couple short per-conference questions...

First, the two things I will FOR SURE have packed in my bag are as follows:

[one] my iPhone

(because lets be honest, not only is it my phone, but it's my calendar, my camera, my lifeline!)


[two] my new blog cards 

(which is a little weird to me, but apparently the thing you do :))

And since this is my first blogging conference, the two things I'm most looking forward to about the Influence Conference are:

[one] meeting some of the women I have come to know & admire via the Internet

(and I really hope I don't freeze when I meet some of my favorite bloggers in person)


[two] to take it all in!

I don't feel like I have a lot of expectations going into the conference, but I just pray that I can take away everything God intends me to.

So, will I get to meet you in a couple weeks?  If so, please leave a comment.
