Good Morning and Happy Monday to You!
Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

On Friday morning I packed up my bags and caught a flight to Charlotte, NC to speak at the Influence Conference! One of my favorite things to do when I get to visit a new city is to try out a new coffee shop. On Thursday night I asked you all on Twitter what your favorite Charlotte coffee spot was and it was unanimous, Améilie’s French Bakery! So we made that our first stop. We had lunch, lattes, and lots of girl talk! It was the perfect sunny Friday afternoon!

On Saturday morning I had the honor of speaking at the Influence Conference along side some of the best ladies I have ever met. To say Saturday was a wonderful day would be an understatement. If you haven’t ever heard of The Influence Network, I would so encourage you to hop on over and check it out, it’s nothing short of wonderful.
The week before each speaking gig, I make sure I have my outfit picked out so that it’s one less thing to think about/worry about. And of course, all week I was so focused on these pretty pink shoes. Whatever I wore, I HAD to wear these shoes. They dictated the rest of the outfit!
Moments before I went on stage, my heel broke! Ha! It’s funny how sometimes things we think are so important are not as big a deal as we thought.
Since I didn’t have a backup pair of heels, I ended up wearing converse tennis shoes (see!) instead. And the world kept spinning. I honestly can’t say enough about Saturday, God showed up in a big way, and I am just so thankful I was there to witness it.
P.S. Have no fear, I will get these pretty shoes fixed and they will be making a comeback!

This weekend was my first AirBnB experience and I loved it! We’ve used One Fine Stay before (remeber Paris?!) but never AirB&B! We crammed like 13 girls into this house and it turned out to be one big slumber party. Also, it didn’t hurt that our “little” home away from home was so C-U-T-E! I mean, be real, does it get any more Southern than this?! Plus, you know how I feel about a red door.
Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!!
