5 on a Friday

 
I am baaaaaaacccckkkk! I wish I could say I came with excuses to give you for my absence, but I'd be lying. I just have the usual "I've been so busy" excuse that you would give a guy you don't really want to go out with. But I have missed all my bloggy buddies SO MUCH!!!!!
 
{ONE}
I've been in Atlanta all week for a work conference and let me just say that I really do love Atlanta, but those people do NOT know how to handle a snow day. The whole city was shut down and the news people were throwing around words like "catastrophic". It was terrifying. All over maybe 2 inches of snow. We got 10 inches in my hometown, keep in mind. Most snow we've seen in years. But overall, ATL was fun and MAN they know how to make some grits!!
My food from Pitty Pat's which was DELICIOUS! Man I love being Southern!

We need a Flying Biscuit in Knoxville PRONTO!


Thursday AM outside my hotel in Buckhead

My church did a women's conference last weekend called IF:Gathering. It was SO incredible! I was so honored to be a table leader and was able to network with a totally new group of girls. You know how when you leave those things you feel like you can take over the world? Yeah, I still have that feeling in my veins! It was just all about sharing our stories and connecting with each other on a deeper level. Nothing can hold us back when we openly talk about our fears and stand together. #girlpower
 
{THREE}
Treat yo self to a cute little V-Day mani - trust me, you deserve it!
 
{FOUR}
Made me laugh!! Gotta love V-day humor! And no I'm not bashing my ex... he's a great guy, just not the one for me.
 
{FIVE}
Tonight I will be with some of my favorite girls from my small group at church and we are going to Winter Jam. I've never been before, but I'm pretty excited. Valentine's Day isn't about embracing love WITH A MAN, it's about embracing any kind of love that you have in your life. Just because you don't have a boyfriend doesn't mean you don't have love. I LOVE YOU! :) If you need to hear that more, then please let me know and I'm happy to tell you. Because sometimes I just need to be told that I'm loved too.
 
Happy Valentine's Day weekend, my loves!!! It's a 3-day weekend for me! YAY for dead presidents! My nerdy self will be all over the History channel this weekend, I'm sure. XOXO

So, not going to lie, after you've now mentioned twice about their grits...I totally googled to see if they had a Flying Biscuit in Raleigh. And they do! Guess where I'm going!

I'm loving the experience you had at IF:Gathering and how much you've blessed me just talking about it!

Hope you have an amazing time at Winter Jam!! And a great 3 day weekend!! Happy Valentines Day!

LOVE YOU THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS MUCH!!!

Oh sweet friend--I love you!! Such a darling manicure and holy snow day batman! I lived in GA for a year an a half just after we got married and we saw a ton of snow (several inches every couple of weeks--it was bizarre) but it seems they've forgotten how to handle it since then. Not that I'm representing any better here in the good old tobacco state because it took people like 11 hour to drive 10 miles. Whatever. That Ecard at the end is hilarious. And you're right--Vday isn't just about man love (man love, lol). Love you friend!! Happy Valentine's Day!

Ashley - Married to the Game said...

You just convinced me to get a mani today! I didn't get my fiance anything for Valentine's Day, but I'll treat myself haha. I hope that you have a great time with your friend tonight! Enjoy your three day weekend!

Atlanta is one of my favorite cities! Sounds like you had a good time! Your Valentine's Day mani is so pretty! Love it! I love the "you didn't marry the wrong guy" card. I can relate to that also! Happy Love Day! I love you, and I am thankful to have you as a friend!

And I'm totally jealous of your 3 day weekend! :)

It is pretty crazy that they shut down over 2 inches of snow but I get that they just don't have the snow equipment we have up north. Love your sparkly V Day mani!
