In March, I had a bike riding epiphany. I didn't know how and wanted to learn. (You can read about that here) So.....
Yesterday, with the help of my dad, sister, mom, four...um..."supportive" ;) nephews, and one brother-in-law waiting for me to fall (just kidding) I learned! Success! At 21, I learned to ride a bike. Better late than never.
I recently applied to a graduate school program and am patiently waiting...no. IMPATIENTLY waiting to hear what I will or will not be doing in January.
I was walking through a building today at a dedication reception with one of the girls from the office where I work. The event was semi-work related so we both had that nervous feeling where you feel like you should be doing something...so you don't have any clue what to do. We just had to wander around aimlessly (and pose for pictures for the Chronicle...you can look for me and Charlotte in the Faith Center dedication article!) I told her "I just want some arrows on the floor like at Ikea!"...metaphorical statement of the week!
I would really like for one of those arrows to be printed right smack on the top of an acceptance email. Lord, give me some Ikea arrows!
I've been away from you all for so long :(
I'm going to answer some questions for y'all and would love to hear your answers too!
I've missed y'all!
What's your favorite holiday and why?
Can I get a raise of hands for Christmas?! I love it! Especially when Christmas is on a Sunday...which will happen next year! I'm so excited! I remember one Christmas Sunday when I was really little that we all woke up and went to church and made Christmas pancakes for everyone...favorite Christmas ever.
Describe the best date you've ever been on?
mm...not applicable :) BUT...if I had to imagine the best date (which of course I have)...it would be ridiculously low-key. Dinner, where we'd catch each other up on everything. Then we'd grab coffee and go wander around a bookstore. Clearly, I'd like him to be a nerd just like me.
Which room in your house is your favorite?
Right now I live in a two-bedroom condo with five other girls...my favorite room is the bedroom I share with two of them. We all three like to shut the world out occasionally. That worked out well :)
How many kids do you want to have?
My friend Meredith and I always joke about how my dad once said I was going to have seven...7...SEVEN. I don't know about that, but I'd like a few :)
What is your favorite quote?
"God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to." -Elizabeth Elliot
What is the first thing you do when you get home from work?
I lay on my bed for about five minutes. Not a nap--just a few minutes to breathe :)
Do you like cold or hot weather?
I'm honestly crazy about both. I love how my skin feels when I'm out in the hot sun...and I love when I get to wear scarves and coats and bundle up!
Do you like your middle name?
Lane--yes! It's my mom's maiden name and I used to hate it...but I love it now!
*don't forget to leave me your answers!*
