5 Things: Hope Spoken Style

I'm so very excited about Hope Spoken - a women's conference in Dallas, Texas hosted by these lovely ladies (Casey, Danielle, and Emily).  I don't know them personally, but I love their heart and passion for loving Jesus & encouraging other women to do the same.  This conference also makes me happy because I just happen to be going with some of my favorite people.
Wonderfulness all around!

Tonight, I'm linking up with the Hope Spoken girls - can't wait to make new friends...

5 things for Hope Spoken:
- post your picture so that we can recognize you.
- introduce yourself!
- something that you are little timid or nervous about for the weekend
- something that you are hoping to take away from Hope Spoken
- share something fun/random about yourself

So, this is me and the person I like best on the planet.  I love this picture because we're at the beach (on vacation), and one of our girls took it at our favorite frozen yogurt place.  Everything in the previous sentence makes me smile.

introduce yourself!
I'm Grace.  I love God, my husband Bill, and our four girls.  I love them like crazy even when they drive me crazy.  We live in Virginia where the weather is ridiculous.  Our life is chaotic, wonderful, hectic, and beautiful all at the same time.  I also love coffee - maybe a little bit too much. 

something that you are little timid or nervous about for the weekend
I'm an extrovert, but I get somewhat shy on the inside about meeting brand new people - random combination, I know.  I'm also slightly nervous about leaving our girls for a few days.  Their father is completely capable - I'm just slightly Type A and have a hard time relinquishing control.
(Pray for me.)

something that you are hoping to take away from Hope Spoken
I know it will be an amazing, fun, encouraging time getting to spend grownup time with old friends and making new ones.  Even more than that, I'm looking forward to seeing Jesus
and knowing Him more.

share something fun/random about yourself
I love to sing even though I can't.
I'm sorry if you're within range when a good song starts playing.

See you in March!

Ok so as much as I would love to pierce your nose for you... I'm pretty sure I would pass out! I had to lay down in my closet with the needle sticking out of my nose TWICE when I did it! But I'd totally go after hours with you to some lil tattoo shop and watch you get it done. Actually, I'd go but probably wouldn't be able to watch. I'd probably pass out seeing that too. ;) Can't wait to meet you in March!

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! It sounds like we really have some things in common...probably most importantly, coffee, no? Ha! We should catch up for a mug together at Hope Spoken! :) Can't wait to meet you.

Grace! I can totally relate - I LOVE to sing but really, really can't carry a tune and I just don't care! In my head, I think I sing like Kelly Clarkson and dance like I'm on Broadway :) Can't wait to meet you!
