Company Girl Coffee 5.22.09

'Morning Company Girls. :)

I hope everyone has had a good week.

First off, is everyone aware that Rachel Anne is having a photo contest? Send in your pictures that represent the beauty of friendship to you. Check it out here: (And yes, I realized I haven't sent any in yet, Rachel Anne. I need to get on that. :) )

As for my life...

I went to a baby shower for my friend Casey last Sunday, which was a good time. :) In regards to work, things have been stressful (as usual). Just way too much to do. I even had to close the door to my office one day to take a breather, because I was afraid if one more person asked something of me I might burst into tears. I've been somewhat grateful that we don't have internet in our apartment. It's prevented me from stressing over work at home, because I couldn't work on anything if I wanted to.

We have our preconstruction meeting for our house next Thursday, which means the foundation should be poured by then and the walls should go up immediately after. So exciting. :) I just can't wait to see it being built. It's been two months now since we signed the contract. The wait has been long enough. (And twice as long as they said it would be.) You can check out all the latest house updates here: Our New House.

So how about some trivia?

Last week's:
True or False: In the book of Esther, God is mentioned zero times.
Answer: TRUE (Isn't that so weird??)

And for this week:
Which of the following were the Israelites not allowed to eat?
a) storks
b) chameleons
c) bats
d) all of the above

God bless!


  1. Hope work improves. It is a long weekend! Yeah!
    I loved your Esther question. My daughter loves that book. I'm going to see if I can stump her.

  2. Yes, sometimes the Internet can weigh us down with more than we'd want it to. It's why we don't have a TV...haha Something we decided on when we got was supposed to be one year, but now it's been 3.5 years. hehe Anyhow, I'm excited for your new house to be built. A neighbor of ours just demoed his house because it had some problems, and it's interesting to see them rebuild from scratch.

  3. Hooray for the house being on it's way!! :) Have a great week!

  4. Yes, sometimes not having internet is a blessing. Because I work from home, I have to really work hard to walk away from the computer at the end of the day.

    Your house is going to get going so fast! Can't wait to see pictures when the building starts.

    Have a wonderful weekend. :)

  5. Hope things go smoothly on the house!

  6. Hi Kara! I hope the work situation gets better! Oh man, if I didn't have internet at home I would go crazy! lol! I'm a bit addicted... ;-)

    Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend! Thanks for the coffee!

  7. I've never had a brand new house built for must be very exciting! Have a great wknd!

  8. Happy house building. I can only imagine the decisions you need to make. And, glad I don't have to make them. Picking a paint color was hard enough.

    Hope work goes better.

  9. I don't think they could eat any of those things...

    Glad your house is coming along. I know you are very excited! I hope will be able to build a house one day. I know exactly what I want it to look like!
