Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.
I took the last two weeks off from posting the link up since I was on my RV adventure! But, it’s back to normal now.
Minus the fact that I left this morning for San Diego. Hehe.
Will my life slow down soon? How is June almost over already. GEEZ.
Last year when I attended the Influence Conference I had a different attitude and mindset than I normally have at conferences. I went there with the desire to meet and make new friends.
I’m usually the type of girl who would rather stay with “my people” and NOT meet new women.
Because honestly? It’s easier. And sometimes I like to be lazy when it comes to friendships. #notproud
I often have a hard time opening the door for new people because it’s uncomfortable. And y’all, I hate being uncomfortable.
But, sometimes God’s best work is when you go out of your comfort zone and do things that stretch you. (more…)
You know what felt soooooo very good? TO BE ON OUR WAY HOME!
Guuuurls…I squealed like a little girl on Christmas morning when we pulled back into the RV rental parking lot and I spotted that dirty black mini. I never thought I would be so happy to see my soccer mom vehicle.
This trip was one for the memory books for sure, but nothing beats heading back to the place that you call HOME. Especially for a chick who is a home body.
I can’t wait to do a recap of the entire trip in one long post…you know – RV tips, money saving tricks, how to not die in a 23 foot camper while your 3 kids screech at the top of their lungs – I’m sure it will be an epic post.
Or perhaps I’ll just let Jeff Rose recap it… Maybe a “How Much Does It Cost To Rent an RV and Travel the States” post seems more intriguing.
Anyhow, THANKS so much for following along with me. I wanted to document this trip so I would never forget it! I know I bombarded you with pictures and videos and snarky social media statuses – for that I apologize. Ha! (more…)
We spent Friday at Grants Farm in St.Louis and the kids got to feed the baby goats. SJ was the sweetest little thing walking around trying to bottle feed them. He kept screaming…”Ober here baby doats!!!! Tome to Swoaney.”
Hehe! A baby feeding babies.
Some more of our friends that live in the area came out to hang at the campsite on Friday night. We had the best time around the fire pit…which speaking of fire pit…this was the FIRST fire we made during the whole trip. Every single place we went had a burn ban EXCEPT this campsite!
Our last leg of the trip ended in Eureka, MO. A college friend of mine, Jen, and her family met us for the last two days! They have an amazingly nice camper (it made me quite jealous)!
We don’t get together very often because they live in Chicago which is about 5 hours from us, so it was sooooo nice to see them!! They almost made me what to buy an RV and do this thing for real. I mean, she had granite counter tops in hers. Seriously.
Plus they had a playroom. Say what!
I told her it’s a good thing we met up with them towards the end of our trip and not the beginning because I would have really hated our RV after spending time in hers. Ha! They even cooked us dinner on Thursday night when we got there.
She is also the one who brought the robes and moose glasses so that I could make the boys live out my Cousin Eddie scene. And ohhhhhhh did it turn out better than I ever imagined. My trip was made after this quick sewer dump. (more…)
