1// Last weekend was so much fun! I started the weekend by driving to my parents’ church in Tennessee for their ladies retreat. I’ll say one thing – it was an incredibly well-organized and executed conference! They even released the complete schedule several days before the event. If you’re like me, that fills you with both calm and excitement! Not only was it organized, it was a spiritual blessing. The music and the Bible teaching was an encouragement to me. There’s one phrase from the conference that I have been thinking about all week, “It’s not the circumstances in your life that make you who you are. It’s your response to those circumstances.” Hmm. Good stuff! On top of all that, I was able to catch up with so many of my sweet friends who were there. It was a great retreat!
2// My sister Alli did a really fun workshop at the retreat on how to build and love a wardrobe that fits your lifestyle. It was really helpful – I certainly need to go shopping! 🙂 If that’s a topic you’d be interested in hearing more about, I’ll see if I can get her to do a blog post or a video for you. (The picture above is from that workshop – my mom was one of her models)
3// We got a lot of good family time over the weekend! Mom, Alli and I did some shopping on Saturday night and then we met up with the guys for supper at Pie 5 Pizza. We don’t have one of those in Greenville yet and I’ve been dying to try it! It was very yummy! We also got to celebrate my mom’s birthday on Sunday – my dad planned a fabulous meal with grilled steaks, roasted asparagus, potatoes and salad, not to mention the shrimp cocktail appetizer! He’s quite the party planner. 🙂 One of our friends makes amazing cupcakes and delivered an order of her famous white chocolate raspberry cupcakes. So much good food! Afterwards we sat out on their lovely patio and played with Snapchat filters. LOL.
4// I mentioned on Instagram that my office was broken into this week. For some reason, a homeless woman broke in and decided to hang out for about four hours. She didn’t do any damage, but she went through everyone’s drawers and took all our snacks, beauty products and even someone’s prescription glasses. One of my co-workers came in early the next day and found her sleeping under someone’s desk! Can you imagine his surprise? It was an interesting day, to say the least.
5// At the top of my to-do list this weekend? Decorate for fall! I can’t wait to reset my house for my favorite season. I’ll have a complete tour with pictures and video on Wednesday.
Have you decorated for fall yet?
Here’s what was new on the blog this week!
