Happy, happy Friday!! Today is Friday! yay!! So excited for this weekend~ We had a great week here, busy as usual…… but great! How was your week? I hope you had a great one!
I only have one fabulous thing this week, well I would have more than that, but apparently I messed up my computer and now it won’t read my memory card. :( So sad! I will have to figure out what I did!
But this week I do have something that I am so very, very excited!!!! I AM GOING TO A BLOGGING CONFERENCE!! My very first ever! I am so nervous and so excited at the same time! I have lots of emotions. I am excited, I am nervous, and I am a little scared, what if no one likes me, what if all these bloggers have millions more followers than me, what if my blog isn’t as good as theirs, what if they think I am a total geek! …. what if I look like a hot pregnant mess the whole weekend? Lots of silly concerns which I know do not really matter at all. I am going to just go and be myself and hope for the best! What you see is what you get with me………. no hidden agendas or anything. Just simple me! I hope that is good enough!
I have wanted to go to a blogging conference since I started blogging almost a year ago! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT! I have been blogging for almost a year! WOW! I was hoping I would have something to share for a month, I can not believe I still have things I want to do and share almost a year later! Time flies! Blogging conferences can be expensive and you have to have the time to go! Those are two things I do not have a lot of. Time and money. Someone, who asked to remain anonymous was so kind and paid the registration fee so I could go, what a blessing. First of all, how wonderful and special they made me feel that they believe in me and want me to learn and grow. Words can’t describe how that made me feel. It was something I won’t forget, nor waste this opportunity to learn all that I can. So after saving for a hotel and Mike’s sister being willing to babysit for few hours before Mike gets home from work AND Mike being willing to run three kids to soccer, Emma has a dance and just run the house for the weekend, including church on Sunday…. I am leaving today!
My first blogging conference here I come! I am going with Ashlee from ashleemartinsmith.com and we are going to drive to Ohio together! I see a fun road trip ahead, we are both pregnant, I am almost 9 months and she is just three months , we may be stopping a lot to pee! haha! I am leaving my kids and Mike for the weekend….. aughhhhhh… that feels surreal! Time away with no kids! And no Mike? It is going to be so weird. I am already looking forward to Sunday when I get home. Kisses and hugs goodbye this morning were a little longer, I will miss them.
I will have fun though and I hope to learn so much! I am thrilled beyond belief for this chance again and I am so excited to have a weekend with Ashlee too! She has been such a help and inspiration with my whole blogging journey and I am really excited to hang out with her!
So, I am off! I hope your weekend is super! I hope you all have happy, joy filled days! I will see you Monday! And I hope my blogging gets better and better! Wish me luck!
Cool nights like last night, I love sleeping when it is cool outside.
I heard my friends little boy telling his sister “not happy, I am not happy” Made me laugh, that is what I say when I am not happy with choices the kids are making.
My dear friend Chad and his wife had their first baby yesterday, a little girl, I am soooo sooo happy for them, she was a little early so please keep them in your prayers!
Meatloaf, roasted potatoes and corn on the cob for dinner last night, perfect colder weather dinner.
Mikes computer is fixed! whoo hoo!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
