I'd tell you I couldn't sleep this morning so I picked some coffee up for us and watched the sunrise on the drive back home. (then spilled said coffee all over at a sudden red light. oops! true story)
Talking about true stories and driving- if we were having coffee right now....
I'd confess that I got pulled over for the first time a few days ago.
Sometimes we drive in circles around the neighborhood because the song's too good and summer is too short.
Sometimes we drive in circles around the neighborhood because the conversations are too good and life is too short.
Sometimes it takes some blue lights and conversations with patrol officers to teach you that driving in circles around and around makes you look like you're up to no good.
Conversations with the officer went like this:
(to set up the scene: it's midnight and the blue lights pulled us over after doing about 14 leisurely loops around the neighborhood with roommate Alex)
Me: "ALEX!! HE IS PULLING US OVER!"
Roommate Alex: "It's okay Haley. Don't freak out. We're okay. We're not doing anything. We're just talking."
*police walks up to car window*
Officer: "Excuse me maaa'am, but can ya tell me why you are going 'round and 'round the neighborhood?"
Me: "I'm so, so sorry!! We were just chatting about life! and um... having some girl talk!!"
Police: "Well you're scaring the neighbors. You need to ride home and park it."
*police on patrol mic. cue southern country accent*
Kcccshhhhfuzzzfuzzz "Nooope, I don't need backup. Just a res-i-daint and her girlfraaand ridin' in circles havin' some 'girl-talk'"
LOLOLOLOL. oops. #notadelinquent
cue end of neighborhood circles since then. #sorryneighbors
If we were having coffee...
I'd ask you what your favorite moving/packing foods are. I'd have to say pizza and pb&js are the most perfect moving foods. Should I change the blog name to pizza and pb&js?! Because both make up 99.9% of my diet right now.
If we were having coffee...
I'd tell you I actually just lied. Because ice-cream makes up about 99.9% percent of my diet right now too. So now I'm a liar and a delinquent. dang it!
If we were having coffee right now...
I'd tell you Athens, Georgia has my heart...and I might just cry a few tears. A few weeks ago, I told someone that I thought I'd always be a traveler and I never thought I'd settle in one place. Fast forward ONE day. I was sitting in an Athens Church service when I realized... I'm in love with Athens! It hit me. I love everything about this city! So incredibly thankful for this town and the people in it. Sometimes I get really excited about a new move ahead, but sometimes my heart aches because I feel it is HERE too! Jesus keeps reminding me of Jeremiah 29:11- "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
The best is yet to come- I know it and He says so and I'm so excited to see how these plans unfold!
If we were having coffee right now, I'd ask you what Spotify playlists you recommend?!
I FINALLY GOT SPOTIFY after one of my tenth graders told me I was a Grandma for not having it. And it has changed my life. PB&Js+ John Mayer=best packing combo. With a side of Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, and Jonas. #nolongeragrandma
