Welcome to Coffee with Anne!




Today I decided it would be fun to do the 30 second challenge from Rags to Stitches

Her challenge was to tell as much about yourself (over coffee together of course.......I have my cup do you have yours!?) in 30 seconds. She is right, it is a great way to meet new friends in the blogging community and you could find a buddy in just 30 seconds!!! 

On a side note......sorry for the yucko picture! But I am still in my pj's and am just going to the gym so I wasn't going to go do my hair and put on make-up just so I could take a picture for my blog.....hahaha so there ya go! Honesty :) 

MMmmmkay so here it goes!

I've been married to my amazing man for over 4 years now and we have the sweetest, most precious girl ever! She makes my days full of so much joy :) I am the youngest of 4 and my sisters are some of my dearest friends. I have lived....

ok that was 30 seconds. Do I type slowly cause everyone else seemed to have more?!?!? Oh well! Can I keep going?!?

I have lived in the same town my whole life other than the 6 months my husband and I spent in India teaching youth ministry basics. I love it here and we plan to stay until God calls us elsewhere! I like being fit but have to drag myself to the gym every time......I literally never am excited to go work out. I snack all day but love making big fun meals, and I hope to plant a garden soon! I miss my old hobbies like dancing and playing the piano and want to figure out how to fit these things in with motherhood. I wish I was a journaler but my entries are few and far between.....I plan to work on that, it is a great way to talk with God. Summer is my favorite time of year and I'm one of those weird people who like when it's really hot!  I am loving this new blogging thing and the community of people I am meeting......but in all honesty want to be cautious in how I use it and how it uses up my time. 

Ok now that it's been a couple minutes I should stop and continue on in our next coffee date.......and obviously if this was real coffee date you didn't get to say anything......... :( Which is kind of true in real life too. Will work on that one :) 



Happy Friday !!!!

thanks for dropping by my bloggy blog! i think your pre-workout pic is cute :) love that yall lived in india. we just moved to tennessee from florida where my husband was a youth pastor so it's definitely interesting to me yall taught youth ministry basics there. im sure "the basics" are much different in india than florida.

Just checked out your blog and was over there for wayyyy too long! Thank you for coming by :)

BeaumontGirl said...

It really is :) Thank you for commenting! I always enjoy your posts as well!

BeaumontGirl said...

Thank you for commenting Jennifer!!!! yes it was very different :) Their concept of youth ministry is very different from ours so we were pretty much starting from scratch as to why it's important to reach the youth in general! It was such an amazing time and God totally blessed our time there. We started over 30 new youth groups in different villages so it really is amazing!!!! Have a great day!
