Confessional Friday

Would you like to know why I missed last Friday's post? THIS girl is why. Sarah is going to Africa the same time I am going to Mexico, and we had to carve out some time to see each other before our travels. Last weekend was our chance, so I road tripped on over to the B-ham (read: Birmingham, Alabama) for a completely wonderful overnight stay. There was much walking, and driving, and talking, and eating, and laughing, and reveling together. I love her to death and am ridiculously thankful for her friendship. True to form, I took my camera with me and didn't take the first bloody picture. Ah well, use your imagination. Picture two girls, both abstract people-oriented, yet different in style and demeanor. Throw in some delicious food, the snazzy little town of Birmingham, and deep soul-searching and you got it. :)
  • I'm in the middle of Black by Ted Dekker. It's super trippy and intriguing.
  • Last Sunday Mark and I taught basic swing dancing to a group of friends in preparation for a banquet we're all attending this Thursday. I will never tire of that dance. It's a part of me.
  • I am making these as I write this.
  • My "Confessions" are less like confessions and more like random facts about my current life.
  • Last night I went to the midnight premier of The Avengers. a) I will always love midnight premiers, whether it's the latest action movie alongside mostly teenage guys or the brand new fantasy flick with more weirdos than is safe to have in one place. b) I have not enjoyed a movie at the theater that much in a long time. Bravo on one phenomenal film. Cannot wait to see it again.
  • I'm flipping back and forth between this and this currently.
  • I get distracted by maps. Someday I'd love to have a room with a massive wall covered entirely with a map of the whole world.
  • My hair is longer now than it has been in 10 years.
  • I've been missing TeenPact friends recently. This is probably the longest I've gone without seeing a significant amount of them. At the same time, I am SO blessed by the memories that I share with all of them that can never be taken away from me. They're with me in an abstract yet genuinely close way. :)
  • Of all the gifts that I could have, I got spelling. Kind of lame, but it's true. I can spell almost anything. It's a weird instinctive feeling. I just know. *mysterious music*

coffee date with Sarah at our favorite shop, Republic Coffee, in Memphis last October.

favorite ever.

  1. I love your factual confessions Anna Kate... and I know that coffee shop in Memphis. I worked at the Neighborhood School for a week which sits caty-corner to it :)

    Have a great week!
