Influence: One Week Countdown + 3 Things

Remember my hemming and hawing over the Influence conference?

Welp. I signed up.


In one week's time, I'll be enroute to Indianapolis with my best bud Meg. I'm still nervous, but I'm also excited. I'm looking forward to learning from the impressive panel of speakers, meeting a whole group of inspiring ladies, and just generally enjoying a girls weekend.

One of the conference organizers, Blair, is hosting another link up, inviting attendees to share 3 random facts in an effort to get to know each other a bit better before we're smashed together in a hotel ballroom. Here's what's rolling around in my head today:

1: I think Coke Zero is a food group. Don't bother lecturing me about the detrimental effects of soda, or the dangers of artificial sweeteners...I have no desire to give up my can-a-day habit. Nectar of the gods, I say.

2: Our small group is currently studying Habakkuk, and after three weeks of study, I still don't know how to say it. HAB-uh-cook? Hab-uh-COOK? Ha-BACK-uk? (turns out I also don't understand much of it either, so maybe the name is the least of my problems.)

3: Puppies. They're pretty great, right?

Bonus thing- Piper Pic (she's pretty great too, right?):

are you attending Influence Conference? holler at me in the comments...
...and link up with your 3 things.  See you soon!!


  1. So exciting that you decided to go! Good for you! I'm loving Piper's bib overalls! Classic cute!

  2. So. Happy. You. Are. GOING!!!!!

    I can't wait to get to know you more!

  3. Can't wait to meet you! So glad you're making the trek out.

  4. Oh, Piper is sooo cute!! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting! I actually live in Indiana not far from Fort Wayne, but my boyfriend lives in Ohio, so I'm over there a lot. :) I had never tried Jeni's ice cream before, but now I'm addicted-love it! I hope we get to meet at the conference!!

  5. Nice to meet you, Courtney! Piper is beautiful!

  6. Piper is adorable! I feel the same way about pop: I realize it's not the healthiest but I don't want to hear about it! I'll be at Influence and I'm excited to meet you!
