Influence Meet & Greet

i'm super duper excited because in just a few short weeks i'll be experiencing a life-changing adventure. while the Influence Conference doesn't claim that, i have a strong suspicion it will. don't know about the conference? just check this link here to find our more & get yo-self a ticket. i just know that God will be working in wondrous ways that weekend for so many and i can't wait to be apart of it!

someone had the genius idea to have a meet & greet link-up to get to know each other before the event. so, i'm going to quit my rambling here and start introducing myself...

hi, i'm courtney.

3 get-to-know-me things:
1/  i try really, really hard to stay focused but if you put something sparkly, lacey, frilly, shiny, or ruffly in front of me i'll be in la-la land for at least 15 minutes.

2/  camping is one of my favorite things to do in late summer/early fall. in fact, if it weren't for the conference, i would probably be camping that weekend.
3/  ET is hands down the creepiest movie EVER made. EVER.

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

1/  SHOPPING at the sashes market!!!! (another fact: i may be addicted to shopping)
2/  learning what God has in store for me and this little bloggy

1 thing I can’t leave home without:
1/  i suppose i'll have to join the masses on this one and say my phone (although a close tie would be my watch, sunglasses, and a lip product)

hurry up October, i'm ready for this!

ps: who's with me on the ET thing?!


  1. Hi Courtney. Loved this post and your sense of humor. I am also VERY excited about this conference and really look forward to the opportunity to meet you. I've also been diagnosed with AD-"oh shiny" so I can completely relate to your #1 get to know you. Talk soon!

  2. okay, girl - you are the cutest! :) so excited to meet you at Influence! i am the same way - totally distracted by anything pretty, ruffly, etc. and TOTALLY agree about ET.

    looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you before then by reading your lovely blog!


    ps - just found ya on instagram - woohoo! :)

  3. Okay...I must admit that I actually saw ET the first time it came out...like, opening weekend...(yes, I'm that old) and I thought it was dumb then...but then this weekend it was on TV and I just got creeped out...the whole tenting the house thing was strange...

    Looking forward to meeting you...will you be wearing the bow?

  4. So excited to meet you! I'm right there with you on the shopping and anything sparkly!!!

  5. my cousin thought it was a brilliant idea to show me ET when i was like five and let me tell you: i am scarred for LIFE. ET just creeps me out!

    i also love shopping and i am really looking forward to the sashes market!

    i'm excited to meet you!

  6. Hi, Courtney! Please teach my daughter to like camping! She's a girly girl, and it ends there. We took her camping and she cried that she wanted her princess bed :) Nice to "meet" you, and look forward to seeing you at the conference!

  7. Hi Courtney. I'm with you on the shopping addiction for sure. Not so much on the ET thing but it has been 25 years or so since I watched it so I'll have to take another look and let you know if the adult me thinks it's creepy. : ) Looking forward to meeting you next month!

  8. Um, you're hilarious. Also, my five year old daughter love ET. Like, really loves. I'm the worst mother ever.
    Excited to meet the real you soon!

    1. *loves.
      (Sorry. I'd let that go, but I'm way too much of a nerd.)

    2. your five year old is braver than me? story of my life.
