Let's Talk! Tuesday

Since our book studies are running one day behind schedule (because I wait to watch the video and then post my discussion) I thought I'd do a random post today! I decided to call it Let's Talk! Tuesday!  (Doesn't that sound like we are just a group of girlfriends getting together to chat?!) 

So every Tuesday, I will post 5-10 random things about me or my day or whatever I want!  That way, you may get to know me a little better!  It's already late in the day as I am posting this, but if you would be interested in joining me starting next Tuesday, leave a comment and let me know!  I will add a link in my post next week so that other people who visit my blog will be able to jump on over to yours to read your random things!  Cool, huh?!  

And I would add one of those cute button thingees for you to put in your post, you know...one that would say Let's Talk! Tuesday, but I have no clue how to make one! Sad, I know. ;)  Maybe I should take a continuing education class or something.

Another reason I'm excited about this post is that it's just fun!  I love ministering and encouraging with my writing, but sometimes I also like to just talk about nothing!  Or everything! 

Now on to my random things/thoughts (or whatever!)...for today!  Let's talk! Tuesday

1.  Today I was invited to my mother in law's group of women from the church (The Golden Girls) as a guest speaker.  It was so fun!  I met some really nice ladies and can't wait to get to know them better!  And I got to speak about our bible study!  Chapter one fit right into what they have been talking about!  Isn't God good??!!  I did get a lot of strange looks when I first came in and sat down at the table, though.  The Golden Girls is for ages 50 and over!  Since I'm only 37 29 (smile), I guess they thought I might be crashing their party.  (ha ha, just kidding!)  But we ended up having a great time, eating some good food and talking about the issues of our hearts.  Thanks, ladies! 

2.  The heat and low humidity today reminded me of my time in Phoenix. For several years, the ministry I used to work for put on a pastors and leaders conference there and I remember how hot it was (especially walking outside in my pantsuit!).  It also made me miss all of the friends I made there! :(  So if any of you are reading this, HI!! :) 

3.  My Tahoe got pampered today. An oil change and a car wash!  (both loooong overdue...)

4.  I need to get pampered.  (Must......get.....pedi.....soon....)

5.  A massage would be nice, too.

6.  I had to drive 30 minutes to get my makeup since it isn't sold where I live.  (ah the life of a small town girl....)

7.  I skipped breakfast.  Oops.

8.  I needed to clean my bedroom, but I just closed the door instead. 

9.  Got a sweet card in the mail from a friend. :)

10.  Thinking about watching One Night With the King tonight(can't believe I still haven't seen it).....after American Idol. :)

Happy Tuesday!!  Glad we had this talk!  Except I feel like I did all the talking for some reason......

Hi Shelly, I am a new follower and would love to participate in your Let's Talk Tuesday chats. So count me in. And making a button wouldn't be that hard. I could probably figure it out for you. Would be simply uploading a picture for the background into Photoshop, adding the text and uploading it into Photobucket. I bet you know of someone who would do it for you, or I could try? Have a great evening!

HI Barbie! I'm so excited that you'll be joining me next week! Can't wait to read your random things! And I just sent my sister an email asking her to make me a button....she does some cool stuff with photoshop! Thanks for the advice and for offering! ;)

You have a great evening, as well!

Hey Shelly,
I am so loving your Lets talk Tuesday.. What a great Idea. I still have not received my book yet, I feel like a little kid waiting for an important package: D
I am with you on the pedi, I have been swamped in wedding details for my dear friend, but that is my job as the matron of honor and my privledge to worry with the details
cause I love her and very excited for her. Oh and "one night with the king" is one of my favs. It is a awesome movie and will bless you. One of my favorite quotes in the movie is " its the glory of God to conceal a matter, and the honor of kings to search it out. Enjoy : )

I wanna join Let's Talk Tuesday. What an interesting way to connect. Kinda reminds me of the book Tuesdays With Morie - just because of the word "Tuesday". Looking forward to it.
