I'm tired - physically and emotionally so I don't know what to blog about. I'm just going to write whatever comes into my head. Hope you all enjoy seeing how my brain works. (Yes, this is what Nate has to deal with on a daily basis.)
Well, all this working, schooling, working out, living life, etc is wearing me down. I need a vacation. Anyone want to pay for me to go to Hawaii? Or Europe? Or Ethiopia? Yeah, send me to Ethiopia. I LOVE Ethiopia! Someday I'll have to tell you all about my trips there.
Speaking of Ethiopia, I've been super emotional recently. The other night, I was telling Nate about a couple from our church adopting from Ethiopia. He said that, once they get the baby, he bets I'll start crying when I get to hold him or her. Him saying that made me start crying because I LOVE little Ethiopian babies SO MUCH! Yes, I cry because Nate tells me I will cry. Also, if we adopt I'm sure it will be from Ethiopia. Also, I might move there just because I can.
Some of our dear couple friends who have been struggling getting pregnant just found out their adopting a little boy in August! I can't wait to share with you all more about their story and the assistance they need in making their dream come true. They're even talking about starting a blog which I'm super excited about.
The main reason I'm excited for them to start blogging is because I really love blogging so much. I love the connections I have with people. I love that I can email or text girls I've never met to talk about life. It fills a void in my heart. What I like even more is meeting my blogging friends in real life. I'm meeting Kelly in a week and I'm beyond excited about it. I kind of have a blogging crush on her. Also, we're so similar - we both are in love with Skylar Astin (and our hubbies know about it), we both hate driving over bridges because we think we're going to drive off and drown (even thinking about that makes both of us short of breath), and we're both adorable (but hopefully you all already knew that). Meeting new people stresses my introverted self out a bit but I'm fairly certain meeting Kelly will be one of the best things ever. (Sorry if I'm coming on a little too strong, Kelly! Heehee)
aBeing introverted can be hard sometimes. Tomorrow I'm heading to a women's retreat with my church and I'm excited but also kind of nervous. I LOVE people but I don't always know how to behave when meeting new people. I hate small talk and just want to get to the heart of someone and talk about deep things. I'm hoping to meet some kindred spirits this weekend and have an amazing, God-filled weekend.
Ok, Nate just walked in the door from Bible study so we're going to go work out now. Hope you enjoyed my jumbled up brain mess you just read. Oh, and do any of you know any good inner thigh/rear end workouts? Those are the areas I'm really wanting to target right now.
And speaking of targeting something - I REALLY love Target.
I'd love for you all to meet my darling sponsor, Amy from Taking Steps Home
Hi y'all, I'm Amy. I'm a lover of Jesus, southern, addicted to hummus, spastic, known to make weird noises/accents, and enjoy a good glass of sweet tea. I love meeting new people and having meaningful conversations about the things going on in their lives. My blog, Taking Steps Home, is a place where i share new projects I'm working on at home, discuss spiritual issues, share recipes, and ramble. Basically, it's a place you can swing by and feel welcomed and normal (at least I hope).
