{Virtual Coffee}

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

It's Tuesday. Time for Virtual Coffee.
Grab a cup of your favorite drink and talk to me.

Well, if we really were meeting for coffee this morning I would tell you.....

*that I am praying that it does not storm this morning, not until after noon at least. Please. The kids are at Vacation Bible School and Charlotte did not want to go because it was sprinkling this morning. That girl has developed a serious fear/phobia of storms....poor thing.

* Check out this old-school Polaroid camera I found at a Flea Market last week...I am in love.
* I have been having a lot of trouble with blogger this week...anyone else? Posting, commenting, messing up my text...so frustrating.

*I would also tell you; NO,  I cannot believe your mom/mother-in-law did that either...what's the matter with her anyway? (And even if I didn't completely agree with you,  I would still be on your side).  : )

*I am also in love with these little paper flower-things I got at Target. How cute are they? They are hanging from the chandelier in my dining room. Oh and really? Target should probably just make me one of their  Spokespeople....they really should.

* a good friend of mine is going to Guatemala on a Mission Trip in December.  I would love to do something like that someday....maybe in a few years. She has worked in orphanages before in impoverished countries and I would love to be able to help in that way someday but I think it would be so hard to do. Definitely something that is always in the back of my mind though.

* I am loving Creativity Boot Camp that started this week.  If you haven't heard of it  you might just be the only one left in blog-land that hasn't. And you can still start, it s a fun, free e-course that really gets you thinking and forces you to step outside the box. Check it out!

Oh yeah, and what are you drinking today anyway?
Well, that's it for today, folks.
Thanks so much for meeting me this morning, see you next week!

*WOOOT! Check out my Virtual Coffee button on the side. I think I just made my very first button! 
I am smarter than a 4th grader, I really am!


  1. i bought those same paper flowers! mine are hanging around my outside eating area. they make me so happy!! i hadn't signed up for creativity boot camp cause i was worried i wouldn't have time to participate. what do you think? can i sign up and now do the activities that very day??? i need some camper insight.

  2. Well, now I NEED to go to Target today. I must have some of those flowers!

    I'm loving Creativity Boot Camp too! Uploading more photos as I write this...

    I'm really tired of cooking. and cleaning the kitchen. thinking of going on a cooking strike... at least for today. :)

    Gonna head out for some real coffee after this. In law's have my two year old, so just me and the baby on a date. Woo!

  3. p.s. i think that sweet virtual coffee pic needs to be a button!!

  4. LOVE those flowers!!
    Where did you find them in Target...the summer area? I must have!

    Sending sunshiny thoughts your way...we start bible school in a few weeks.

    I would tell you that today I had the most delicious Choc. Chip muffins and I linked to you!!
    Enjoy the day!

  5. Here's my dialogue over coffee with you, dear:

    #1...I love that picture of your coffee, and if you don't mind, it's my desktop background right now;) I think of you when I see it!

    #2...Wow. I would so love to go on a missions trip. Anywhere would be amazing. Guatemala, even. Not many people know that, not many people think there are many things I want to do, other than what seems obvious and in front of me. The past few days Jesus has really been showing me that every season is precious. This one I'm in is precious, even with all the unbelievably annoying moments with siblings and havoc and ruts in the road with parents. Because someday...this time will be gone. And with that in mind, I do want to be one of the best sisters ever. I want to try to be an agreeable daughter. I want to do more than I thought planned for my life while being a single person in my loving family. *sigh* He'll show me what to do. I just need to talk to God more. Oh, yeah. And listen.

    #3...That Polaroid camera is the bomb! It's adorable! Love how vintage it is.

    *takes last sip of milked-up coffee and smiles*

  6. Gosh, there's something about it only being a comment and not my own post...oh yeah, and how it's over coffee...that makes me just spill. :)

    And I totally sympathize with your little girl about storms. I used to be freaked out at dark clouds, and just the threat.
    Until I got older and I found, through talking to Him and reading the Bible, that He's stronger than anything and just loves me. And He keeps me in His hand no matter what.

  7. I love those flowers! I'll have to look for them next time I'm there :)

  8. Yes, in the "summer" aisle, just $3...quite the steal.

    I already answered Heather but...
    For anyone else curious about Boot Camp; You can totally go at your own pace, do what you want/can and you are not obligated to share anything...only if you want. Check it out!

  9. I grabbed your button! That's great!

  10. That polaroid land camera is sweet, I would have snatched that right up too...I think soon we will be able to get some film for it. Love those flowers..I'll be looking for them at target! Hope you had a great day!

  11. okay, so where are you posting your boot camp work? or are you? i'm loving it to, but so impressed that you have the space to fill with blog posts, too! i can't do it all!

  12. I missed coffee again, so I am checking in late! Love the new header! I already downloaded your new button. That camera is fab!! I have seen some at a local antique store but they are super pricey! I am also in love with those flowers, have some in my eldest daughters room in the Martha Stewart version:)

    I have been crazy busy with the kids: 12 stitches for my son, within an hour of getting out of school, swim meets & dive meets, practices & kids eating like crazy! But I am so happy that school is finally out & that we are able to enjoy each other. Not much blogging happening here! Hugs till next week, Cathy

  13. Your blog and the header look so awesome, Amy! Really draws me right in. :) Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog...you're great. Hugs!


leave me a comment...you know you wanna.
