Beth, a birthday and some decorating

This has been another crazy busy weekend.  I have a feeling that I will be typing that after every weekend from now on!  I have so much to share and I'm so exhausted that I can barely think straight to type a sentence.  I told my mom that I think I push myself extra hard to do things when they are in town visiting so that we can squeeze everything that we need to get done into the short time they are visiting us.

The reason my parents came to visit us this weekend was so my mom could go to see Beth Moore with Billie and me.  None of us had ever seen her in person so we were extremely excited to go to the conference!  She packed out the lower arena at Rupp.  There were over 11,000 women from 29 states!  CRAZY seeing that many women in one place!  Beth did not disappoint.  She spoke on "Eat, Pray, Love" from Jeremiah and it was great!  Saturday morning somehow we were running early!?! and we got to the arena before the doors were opened so we had awesome seats for the Saturday session!  We were only about 8 rows up into the bleachers.  It was worth waking up at 5:30!  We had a great time and learned a lot!

My dad's birthday was last weekend so we celebrated his birthday while he was here.  He liked his cute golf cake!

The other items this weekend were a baby shower given by Jonathan's work, painting the nursery, assembling furniture, installing a chair rail and a ceiling fan!  I have so many pictures from those events that they will have to be their own posts.  I'm worried if I try to do one post with that many pictures it might be the longest post ever!  So you'll just have to wait.  But just know that I'm loving the nursery so far and cannot wait to start decorating and accessorizing the room!!

Didn't you just love her?!?!? I've had the pleasure of seeing her several times and I leave feeling so refreshed every time. She just has a way of speaking truth that hits you! I love her!

Glad you had a good time with your parents. I'd love to tell you to relax and take it easy... but I'd be a hypocrite!

Seeing/hearing Beth was such a blessing and spending the time and weekend with my girl is best of all. Never ready to go home but glad we got so much accomplished. Love you both so much! Mom
