If we were sitting down together having coffee this morning, we'd be chatting about a few things:
+ My heart is still breaking for Las Vegas and the events that unfolded there Sunday night into Monday morning. I know this world isn't our home, but it's just so hard to see these terrible things continuing to happen even though I know that the world is only going to get worse, not better, until His return. Come, Jesus.
Brandon is scheduled to be in Las Vegas on Monday for an annual trade show, staying in a hotel that's around three blocks or so from the Mandalay Bay. He and I cannot thank God enough that his event is this coming Monday as opposed to this past Monday; if he would have been there...well, I just can't imagine thinking about all of the "what-if's." I just can't.
+ You know what I'm thankful for? Friendships. Friendships of all shapes and sizes and even those from the blogging world. I have made some of my best friends from this little corner of the Internet and I'm just so thankful for these girls. Our texting conversations crack me up and I'm just so grateful that, even though they're hundreds of miles away, these girls get me and I often wish we all just lived in the same town together!
+ Our calendar this fall is giving me hives. We literally have something going on almost every weekend, and I'm just over here trying not to freak out at all we have going on. Why is October so crazy busy every year?!
+ You know what else is stressing me out? Christmas. I love Christmas so much, but the having-to-buy-the-perfect-gift business is making me anxious. And also? We are starting the Elf on the Shelf tradition this year and I'm nervous I'm going to forget to move him and Walker will figure me out. ;)
+ I need to get back into an exercise routine and stat. I got out of it about a month ago and I just can't seem to get back into it. Add to that the days are getting shorter, and all I want to do in the evenings is curl up on my couch with my husband and a glass of wine. I need Jillian Michaels to just come train me every day. For free. And not yell at me. Is that asking too much?!
+ Walker doesn't have school tomorrow for "Fall Break," and I'm all kinds of out of sorts. My OCD totally shows when I get thrown off due to one little kink in my schedule. Seriously, I need a shirt that says, "Your OCD is Showing." Or something.
+ I really love the peplum trend, but I just don't know if my post-two-babies body is suited for it. Like, I really love this shirt for fall, but I have hips unlike the model and am not a size 00 like this precious model probably is. So I just don't know. Also, I could live in the Calson brand. I seriously love all of their stuff!
Okay, so that's all off my chest...! ;) Hope y'all have a fabulous Thursday! Almost the weekend!
