Mondays aren't usually my favorite day of the week, but today has been an extra fun day!
We usually play a little game at dinner on Monday nights. Don't ask me why we play on Monday. We don't really plan it, but it just always seems to fall that way. We go around the table and each of us tells the best part of our day, and the worst part of our day.
If you were a guest at our table tonight, you'd have heard me say that the best part of my day was getting to meet my blog friend, Carrie. I found Carrie's blog last summer and she quickly became one of my favorite bloggers. She is so down to earth, and smart, and sweet, and she constantly challenges me to think about being a good steward--of money, posessions, time, our environment, etc. Carrie lives in Iowa, but she's from Colorado. She's been in town visiting her parents for a few days. Her visit was actually a surprise for her dad who ran a 50K race (31 miles) on Saturday. Wow!
I loved visiting with her over lunch at 3Margaritas--my favorite mexican restaurant. It's actually kinda weird (in a good way) to meet a blog friend in real life because you already know so much about them from their blog. Carrie and her husband are in the process of buying their first home, and it was so exciting to hear all the details, and to see God's hand in some of the timing issues. I'm thankful I had the opportunity to spend time with her today!
And...the cool thing is that another one of my blog friends is vacationing in Colorado this week, and I'm hoping to connect with her too! How fun is that??
Oh yeah, the worst part of my day? Probably all the homework we had to tackle tonight, including Will's poster project that we put off all weekend.
I am really looking forward to getting my hair cut tomorrow. I keep looking at my hair in that photo above and thinking that it is SO long. I think I'm going to get my stylist to chop off a couple of inches, but I know I'll miss being able to pull it up in a ponytail.
