7 Quick Takes Friday — Road Trip
It’s road trip time! This weekend is the Behold Conference!
I’m so stinkin’ excited. I spent about one hour trying on outfits this week.
I have three possibilities.
I know, I’m absurd.
But, but, but…
I might change my mind. Or the weather might change from the forecast.
It’s not like we’re flying. Don’t judge!
Did I mention I’m road tripping with Jenny?
She is a great blogger who I met via Rebecca.
She lives in my area and now she’s part of the Catholic women’s book club I belong to!
Can’t wait to get to know her even more during our 3+ hours each way in the car.
I am going to make a CD to take in the car. Suggestions for road trip music?
So is Hallie, whose book just arrived today in the mail!
It’s sold out on Amazon, but you can order it directly from Our Sunday Visitor, the publisher.
Book club, I’m looking at you! Let’s read it.
Also, a new blogger I recently discovered is going to be there, and be giving one of the main talks.
Kate Wicker, who writes about body image and food issues, and who I am so eager to meet IRL. She’s so sweet and encouraging.
Her book, Weightless, is pretty close to the top of my reading list.
I love my Maggie, I really do. But oh how I crave a day away. I’m so looking forward to this opportunity to refresh, recharge, and renew.
There’s going to be adoration, confession, and great speakers.
Not to mention all the wonderful ladies mentioned above.
I realized tomorrow is Friday and we’re going to be on the road over the dinner hour. Which means we’re going to have to stop. And we can’t eat meat.
I really, really hate the fish sandwiches. Gross.
So, I’m hoping we can find somewhere to stop that has some meatless option other than ice cream or fried fish.

I have a prayer request.
Two of the fellow bloggers at IGNITUM TODAY, Christina and Andrew, are newlyweds. They’re also expecting their first child, Maria Isabella, and they found out during an ultrasound that Maria has spina bifida.
Next week, doctors will operate on Maria Isabella in the womb. Please pray for all three of them, and for the doctors who will be operating on this beautiful little child. They are a strong couple with deep faith, and they are truly being put to the test.
Thanks friends, and have a great weekend!
