A Few Things.

1. One of the best photographers in the country stopped by "That Girl.." to say hi...Seriously, Jasmine. I spent ALL DAY in my office Monday looking at your work. Folks, the girl is the real deal. And she loves Jesus. And she is dang good at what she does. Her engagement and wedding photography blows my mind...It makes me secretly wish I lived in Cali. J*--Thanks for doing what you love very well.

2. A Snuggle Story follow-up. Seth snuggled (which he may indeed hate but he takes one for the TEAM) and I did something I SAID I would never do: I watched part of a Star Wars film. I was informed that it was not, in fact, a Sci-Fi movie but a "fantasy" film. I pinched myself to make sure I was really having that conversation. Anyway, the things we do for love. Give and take, people, give and take.

3. It's Pastor Appreciation Month. Tell your pastor thanks. (or in my case, tell pastor/boyfriend he's hot and his glasses make him look like Rob Bell. He says he doesn't believe me, but I'm convinced he still likes hearing it.)

4. Speaking of, I was teasing him last week that I was not getting any love for Pastor Appreciation Month--
"I doubt they make cards that say thanks to our pastor's girlfriend," I said.

He then made an interesting observation. "Do you really want them to make Pastor Girlfriend Appreciation Cards...After all, what are most pastors?"
"Married." I said sheepishly. "I guess you're right. It wouldn't be good to hand one to their wife and one to their girlfriend."
And in one fell swoop he killed my (not-so-serious) lack of love argument.

5. Speaking of gifts, that next Wednesday I received a purse from BeckyB. It is black with pink fuzz and polka dots. Come on friends! Does it get any better? As a matter of fact, it does. It also has "That Girl" and John 12:1-8 embroidered on it. I did get a kickin' pastor's girlfriend appreciation gift after all. (Pumps fists in air.)

6. I am getting a haircut a la Beverly tonight. Can't wait!! I sent her a text that said:
"Well then, yes, That Girl would like for you to chop her hair off and make her look smokin' hott so her BF and everyone else does a double-take. Capiche?"
I don't ask for much, you know.

7. I had a great time with Annie and Krystal last night. This red-headed duo and I have been friends for a looong time, and they are both firecrackers in their own right. At one point, I almost wrecked and peed myself because of them. I did backwash into my own drink. Gross. But it was either that or give my car a healthy spray of Pumpkin Spice Latte. We make choices, you know. Let me just say that Krystal is proabably the ONLY person on the planet who could successfully talk me into seeing "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" but I fought off her incredible arguments to avoid it, Praise God. Instead I showed them Seth's house and our church building.

8. IF you are local, it would pretty much be a crime for you to miss Providence's women's conference. If you read the blog but have never met me, COME to the party and let's be friends! Email me for more info...
