5 Things // Vol. 18

1.) Hello August! Last week I returned from Fresno and put my office back together. It was lovely getting things organized and in place and I loved getting back to work. I had really been missing a since of routine and it was the best feeling settling back in.
2.) I love getting fun things in the mail and I have been trying to get more happy mail sent out. It was nice sitting down and thinking of friends that I wanted to write too. I'm working on making this a weekly habit. I would love to send you some happy mail!
3.) I returned from Fresno with chocolate from Paris. I was thrilled! I love chocolate especially dark chocolate and I felt extra special having chocolate from Paris. What kind of treats have you experienced from new places?
4.) We kicked of our Life Group Summer Session last week. We come together in fellowship to learn and share how Jesus is working in our lives, but first we ate and we had the most amazing cupcakes. Delicious!
5.) I have been trying to get things organized from being busy the last couple of weeks and that included lots of list making. I was happy to get my papers organized and create new lists. On one of my lists was buying a train ticket. I'm headed to Fresno one more time. Have you ever taken the train?

P.S. Head over to The Lady Okie for a chance to win some goodies from my shop! Check it out! Don't miss out!

  1. So we're keeping a dog for some friends who are off bringing their new baby home via adoption.... and their dog is eating our house!!! This weekend he ate my external hard drive (he almost lost his life in that one!) and my make up bag from your shop!!! I was so sad!!! So I saw this about the giveaway and got excited! Either way... I'll be hitting up you soon for a new one!

    1. That sounds crazy! I'm guessing you had to take the dog to the vet since he almost lost his life?... scary. I'm so sorry to hear that he is eating everything including your bag! That is sad! Hopefully you're the lucky winner!

    1. I thought of you when I posted this cupcake picture! I love how you eat like a normal person when you train. Tyler and I start P90X3 today and everyone always talks about nutrition and all I think about how I'm just going to keep eating fruit snacks and chocolate.
      That's the way to do it!
