hey there! influence pre-conference meet & greet


Today I'm linking up with some of the community leaders of the Influence Conference that is coming up in October.  {Definitely, definitely check out their website if you want to know more about joining in on the fun.  It is going to be such a great time!} We're sharing a few "get to know me" tidbits to help get past the awkward phase of meeting new people. {Thank goodness!}

I cannot express how pumped I am to get together with so many different women from all over that are excited about discussing and learning about the crazy awesome influence that God has given all of us.

I know absolutely no one that is attending this conference, so I'm really taking a leap (err... jump) of faith with attending.  I couldn't be more scared and excited all at the same time!

... Alright, enough already.  Here are the 3 questions:

3 get to know me things: 

  • I am a definite introvert, but I absolutely love people and talking for hours.  I just have to get out of my comfort zone and push myself to do it!  Don't let my shyness fool you. 
  • I am addicted to watermelon this summer.  I could (and already have) eat a whole one in just a day (or perhaps an afternoon...).  
  • My husband and I just had a little baby boy 5 months ago.  I am in complete love with both of my guys and cannot get enough of them.  


2 things I'm looking forward to about the conference:

  • Meeting all YOU wonderful ladies, learning and growing with each other, having discussions that inspire and excite, and just HAVING FUN!  I really think that the connections made at this conference are going to continue far and beyond the conference weekend
  • Learning how I can take the next steps to becoming stronger in my voice and adequately use the influence the God has given me  


1 thing I can't leave home without: 

  • If I had to choose only one thing, I would have to say that I can't leave without a small notebook.  I am a definitely list and idea maker.  {recipes, art ideas, cleaning to-dos, errands ... I have to write it all down!}

Well, that's just a tiny bit about me... it sure was hard to choose just a few things.  Have an awesome week, everyone!

  8. I'm all about lists- it's so satisfying to know exactly what you've got to do and to cross things off as they get done!

    And your baby boy- what a cutie!

    1. Thank you!! You are so right ... I don't know what I would do without lists. And I don't want to forget any fun ideas (I'm sooo forgetful!).

      Thanks for stopping by, Chelsea!!
