Please allow me to confess...

My mind's been a-wandering since I've been working alone all week & had tons of time to think. Allow me to confess to you some of the things I dwell on while makin' all those beds and vacuuming all those meeting rooms! Don't judge me, friends.
  • Pinterest: While I agree that Pinterest is super duper handy and convenient, not to mention tons of fun & overwhelmingly full of amazing ideas on the web; I am inconsolably envious of you engaged ladies [or ladies who will be engaged at some point] who have Pinterest to act as your personal wedding planner/idea board. The rest of us old married women had to use sticky notes, "bookmarks", and actual binders. I loved looking at ruffledblog.com when I was planning our wedding & had to search that site hundreds of times to find that one picture of that one cake or that one hairstyle. You honestly have no idea how many bookmarks I had on my computer at work. You are SO LUCKY to have Pinterest to help you keep all your random ideas in one cute little organized place. End rant. [yes I'm talking to you, Molly] And yes, I do dwell on this 7 months after our wedding. Oh! happy 7 months of marriage today, babe :)

  • SoCal Blogger Meet-Up: I can't believe I will actually get to meet some of the girls that keep my sane while living atop this mountain. Like I've said, I did not intend to make friends by blogging, I just wanted to clear my head through writing. Well one thing led to another and now I'm in love with it & also with the friends I have made. Like real friends! [atleast they better be real!] Saturday I get to meet a few of the girls that live down here and I can't stop talking about it. Even though my coworkers think I'm weird for going to a "blogger meetup". But to be honest, [cue confession] I am soooo nervous. I am very confident behind the computer screen, but here I can think about what I type.. back up and re-type, etc. I get social anxiety when I am around new people and I have been praying all week that this doesn't happen! I know these girls already love me so I dont know why I am so nervous, but just had to be honest here people.
  • Balance: While I am on the subject of blogging; I just want to confess that sometimes I don't have the time to write out everything thats in my head. Sometimes I just love reading what all you bloggers have to say and usually I find myself encouraged, inspired, and come away refreshed. So, thank you. Thank you for finding the time to write out what's on your heart. Because it really does touch me.
  • God Time: I am not good at making time for God. It has always been a struggle for me ever since I realized I could have a relationship with Him. Waking up early is just not realistic because I hate mornings. After work I get distracted and honestly, just forget. I've really been convicted about this lately and so I've been searching for a remedy. I finally ordered Beth Moore's Believing God study workbook and honestly, it has been amazing. In just a few days of going through her lessons, I have seen so much growth. It encourages me and excites me for the next days' lesson. I am beyond thankful for this right now!

  • Juicing: This is my last confession. For today atleast. We bought a juicer a few weeks ago after watching Fat Sick & Nearly Dead and a few other documentaries on Netflix. So far, Zach has used it every single day since we got it & I have used it exactly once. And of course I documented it with a photo. I did commit to doing a 7-day juice fast starting on Monday [thanks to Ashley ] because I really do believe in the effects and I want to see the health results. I just dont think it tastes that good. I'll have to deal though.

Pinterest, balance and God time..I think we may be the same person. I'm right there with you on the whole Pinterest topic... my computer was a mess with bookmarks and short cuts on my desktop; I definitely read everyone else's blogs more than I actually blog =) and I am still trying to find the recipe for regular, consistant quiet time each day with the Lord. I'm going to have to look into Beth Moore's study, I. Love. Her.

I love you to pieces!!!! Can I confess that I am super nervous about Saturday too, but meeting you is going to bring me the greatest joy, I just know it! I love that we've become friends and can't wait to finally meet! I've been dying to get a juicer, have you added apple to them to sweeten them up? I've heard that helps!
One more day! Eep!!!

Lauren said...

I think I really need a work book, it would be a good thing for me. I will have to check this one out :)

Also, I think Hollie is nervous about the meet up too, shh don't tell. I told her I was pretty sure you and Meg would dress casual chic so she could too. But whatever, I would be nervous too! I mean, it's so exciting, nerves are bound to crop up!

Katie said...

I've read your blog a few times now - don't know why I wasn't an "official" follower until now! I love Meg's, Hollie's and Jamie's blog and am jealous that you all get to meet! I hope you have a wonderful time! (And I really need to get some kind of book/devotional too - it is always a struggle to find time for the Word even though it should be a priority!)

Ok i LOVE Pinterest! Eventhough i'm not getting engaged any time soon, I have a board dedicated to weddings planning and stuff! I'm riciulous haha

Have fun at the meet up!! Sounds like it's gonna be so much fun!

Cara said...

Hi Katie! I will be at the meetup tomorrow as well and look forward to meeting you!! xo
On a side note, I too have been inspired by the documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" that I have been juicing and doing a raw foods diet for the past 2 weeks. You will be surprised with how your taste palate changes and the results! I was eating a gluten-free/vegan diet prior to but feel even BETTER now. Excited for you! Keep me updated...

It actually stresses me out thinking about trying to plan a wedding using pinterest...I would constantly feel as if I wasnt doing enough or didnt have enough mason jar crafts haha!! I got addicted right after my wedding so that is probably a good thing! And have FUN at your blogger meet up!!!!!!! take lots of pics!

Renee said...
