I have a new addiction people…PODCASTS. I know I wrote about them awhile ago but I sort of downloaded them and forgot about them. But in my awesome new car I have bluetooth and usb modes in my radio so it’s really easy to listen to podcasts on my phone or ipod in my car. So I have been listening to several different ones in the car and at work. So far my favorites are:
I’m looking for some blogging ones but haven’t found many that I like yet.
Allume is in LESS than a week!! I cannot wait! I am leaving Wednesday afternoon after class since it starts around 2pm on Thursday and is about 7 hours away. I can’t wait to meet all the bloggers and the speakers and just be on “retreat” (well that is what I am calling it ha) for the weekend. And at least have a break from my crowded house (even though I am sharing a hotel room with others it’ll be different and nice and fun).
Because I am crazy one thing I want to do on my way to or from the conference is stop at a Trader Joe’s and Harris Teeter. Everyone talks about these 2 stores so I am DYING to check them out just to see what the big deal is. I’m secretly hoping Harris Teeter has some awesome deals for me to snag. At least that will make up for me not being able to find anywhere that serves Dim Sum on my route 🙁 I’m going to have to break down and drive to Orlando soon.
I have been in the midst of researching vacations to Europe and OMG there is sooo much information out there. Even though no one has used Travel Agents since 1992 I might look into meeting with one to get some information as I’m pretty clueless in terms of logistics and such. Everyone tells me I have to take a tour but half the cities I want to go to aren’t included on tours and I want to go to Disneyland..I have my priorities people!
My Maid of Honor dress came in…I have no idea if I wrote about it on the blog yet….I don’t think I have…after worrying about what size to order it actually fits REALLY WELL and needs BARELY any alterations!! YAY!!
I heard this Big Daddy Weave song on the radio while I was driving home from work last week and it was one of those songs that you just needed to hear at the right time. This band isn’t catholic (to my knowledge) but I feel like this is SUCH a catholic song…maybe because it has the word “saints” in the chorus. I don’t know but it talks about sharing your story which I think is so important and one of the reasons why I shared my faith story/conversion story last week.
