Let’s have a cup of coffee and chat…

Hey friend {insert big smile and warm hug here}
I am so glad you wanted to have coffee with me today.
there is so much I want to tell you.

First I would share with you the super exciting news
okay super exciting to me, but maybe slightly rubbing it in your face to you.
I won a Silhouette Cameo..
at this point I would stand up in the coffee shop and strike a super star pose…

after composing myself
I would ask you to forgive me for that, I am still in shock!

I would also want to brag tell you that I memorized my verse for this week

Joshua 24:15b A – As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
I would also show you a picture of how i am displaying my current memory verse.

chalkboard fabric in an embroidery hoop, I wrote the verse with a chalk marker

I would tell you how awful I am doing about starting my day in the Word.
I would also tell you that I just signed up for a schedule to help me read through the bible in 1 year.
I would suggest you sign up too, it’s not just for 1 year readings but for devotions and more.
I would also tell you i signed up 2 days ago and have failed to complete my readings..

I will not try to convince you that my excuse is my kids are sick, puking and such
that I have been spending all my time caring for them and tending to their  every need
but reality is I streamed a lot of movies on netflix, and while the kids watched them
I blogged, pinned, facebooked, did laundry, organized their room, and decluttered my computer desk.

we would laugh together as I share i bribed people to vote for my pinterest challenge projects.
yup I am sly like that!

I would tell you I am struggling with balance
with my shop, blogging, spending time with God, my kids, husband, friends, and ministering to others.
I would tell you I feel all these things God wants me to be a part of but I am not sure in what capacity.
I would tell you that I am going to try and pray about ti more and let him answer that question!
I know I need to try and stop figuring it out with my own strength, because i need to let God lead my life.

I would tell how much I am still obsessing over pinterest!
we would both laugh at the insane number of pins, boards, and likes I have created!

4-2-2011 = 10 boards,  82 pins, 1 like
1-12-2012 = 87 boards, 2781 pins, 288 likes

I know, I know,  I know
It’s a problem, but I would argue it’s a good problem
right?!?

well friend, it’s that time, I have to run
thanks for coming to have coffee with me today
{insert sad face and hug}

hope to see you next week.
