Feeling Uplifted!

Somehow it's the last day of March… Could someone please explain that to me? It doesn't matter what I try, time continues to go faster and faster every year. That is a sure sign of an old person…crap. That's not good, considering I'm pretty sure I start every blog post at the end of a month the same way. I guess all we can do is hang on and enjoy the ride, no matter how fast it's moving!

This weekend was awesome. I mentioned Friday that my mom and I would be attending a women's conference and it was honestly the best time ever. I left feeling so uplifted and just plain joyful. Friday night and all day Saturday we got to hang together hearing amazing speakers like Kay Robertson, Pam Tebow, Karen Kingsbury and Margaret Feinberg. Plus there was incredible music all weekend by Jeremy Camp and Michael O'Brien.
There really aren't enough words to describe how much I learned, how much I was impacted and also how hard my mom and I laughed all weekend. I picked up an awesome book at the conference that I absolutely can't wait to dive into this week! If the Extraordinary women's conference ever comes to a city near you, I highly recommend attending :)

Our schedule was go-go-go and we may have stayed up just a tad too late watching Kentucky beat Louisville Friday night in our hotel room. By the time I got home Saturday night I was absolutely beat, falling asleep on the couch again so I finally gave in. I went to bed at 8:30. EIGHT. THIRTY! I'm either a toddler or a grandma, I can't quite decide; however, the 11 hours of sleep I got were absolutely glorious and I felt ready to go Sunday morning!

Sunday was filled with church and running errands with Jared. We hit up a few discount clothing stores while we were out, including Gabriel Brother's, do you guys have those near you? It's always hit or miss, and you never know what you're going to find there so of course when I was on the fence about a dress, I had to snap my SIL and get her opinion. I laughed SO HARD when she sent me a picture of herself THE DAY BEFORE trying on that same dress in the same store. Great minds, right?! ;) Neither of us ended up buying it but it just cracked me up.


Other than a little shopping, Jared and I came home to relax and make delicious ground turkey tacos will all the fixin's. As much as I miss carbs, these are always a tasty alternative!

How was your weekend? Did your March fly by as fast as mine seemed to??
PS- My birthday MONTH starts tomorrow ;)

  7. As much as those lettuce tacos look good, I think Keith would be like "where's the shell?"

    I'm trying your suggestions on breakfast today, though, we'll see how it goes (ie the protein shakes) :)

  9. Conference sounds like fun! It's always nice to hang out with mom too :) We don't have a Gabriel's near us but I'm obsessed with stores like TJMaxx and Marshall's. Also been hitting the thrift shops pretty hard now that I have a little one.

  15. That conference sounds ammmaaaazing! I'm glad you got so much out of it and had a good time with your mom! Also, I'm pretty sure I mention how 'time is flying' at the end of every week, weekend, month, year... etc. But I just can't help it because SERIOUSLY time goes by faster and faster every minute. Unless I'm at work and waiting for lunch time :-)

  25. Jeremy Camp makes my heart so happy, I have a CD in my player in my car that I've been listening to on my way to and from work of him. And that dress! Girls, that dress! You both look fantastic, you should both go get it. So cute!

  26. Oh, Gabes. I miss having one close to me. I used to go there when I lived at home and visited during college. I haven't been in years! That dress was cute - one of you really should have bought it. You could have shared it! Maybe one of these days we'll get to wear flowy maxi dresses again...
