I just had the most amazing weekend. Several months ago the ladies from my church decided to plan a little trip to go see Beth Moore.
Side note, I remember a couple of years ago Luke and I were playing a game about if you could meet anybody who would it be and without hesitating I said BETH MOORE.
I would love to spend time with her, just hang out with her, possibly become her BEST FRIEND. Ya know, just whatever.
Beth (we are on a first name basis thank ya very much) has this way of making the word come ALIVE for me. When I listen to her I just want to my nose in a bible and not take it out. Just soak in His Word.
I had such a good time at the conference. Laughing with friends, praising God through music and just studying his word.
My best friend Kara met up with me and my church girls and stayed in the hotel with us. It was good to spend time with a friend I don't get to see as often as I would like.
Our group hanging in the hotel:
I was walking around the convention center looking or my mother in law (which seems silly now that I think about the fact that there were 7700 women there) and I walked right past Lauren. I did a double take, at the same time she was doing a double take. It was so funny! We have read and commented on each other's blogs for year! YEARS! So crazy to randomly meet up with other bloggers. It was so fun to see her and chat for a few minutes.
I saw several other friends there and I'm bummed I didn't get pics with them. I just wasn't thinking about pictures. My mother in law was there with a group of her friends and I was able to meet up with them after the conference and visit for a bit, but again, no pics. :-(
It was just such a good weekend, and refreshing. I have been reading back over my notes, (and pictures I took of a friend's notes who is a MUCH better note taker than I am, thanks Ali) and just going back over everything that really spoke to me. I love doing that after events.
Eli spend the weekend with my family. I had to leave for the conference Friday before Luke got off work so it just made sense for me to take Eli with me and leave him with my family. He loves spending time with his cousin and just play, play, plays the whole time. And clearly doesn't sleep much based on his mood after we get home.
Sunday after church Luke's work had an outdoor event so we headed to that and ate lunch with some of his coworkers. It was a gorgeous day and was fun to be outside enjoying the weather.
After the event I went to a Scentsy training. Between Beth and some new Scentsy ideas I'm working on my brain is on overload.
So I'm headed to bed now. I will be participating in The Nester's 31 days challenge. I'm really excited about my topic. I'll admit it's a little lame and cliche but I think it is much needed right now and it will be good for me. I hope you'll follow along!
