Hi, and welcome to 2nd Cup of Coffee, especially if you're visiting for the first time via The Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes for Mom. And now I will introduce myself.
I'm on staff at my church in the youth ministry. Tonight we had a big shin-dig to honor all of our volunteers who help in any capacity. Volunteers are important--understatement of the year. At Oneighty, we have about 150 volunteers who work once a month on average to make Sunday nights the best night of the week for kids. We love kids; we accept kids, and through different means every week, we tell them Jesus loves them, too. Even if they forgot to bring home homework or bring the trash cans up from the curb. But mainly I register them for things and send out huge mailings. Woo-hoo!

I'm a wife, mom of three, and own the cutest dog in the world:
I was the world's worst high school cheerleader, completely unathletic and big, so I was always the base of the pyramid while the cute girls got to put their shoes in my face and neck.
I can drive a stick shift. I am very proud of this fact and work it into almost every conversation I have with someone.
I was a spelling bee champ several times over, but never got past fourth in the regionals.
I think blogging is a little narcisississsstic (did I spell that wrong???) but I admit I'm hooked, and I'll be dropping to look at you, too, if you leave me a comment. Preferably about how cute my dog is.
Surprise! I don't have any prizes to give away.
I love Jesus. He loves me. He loves you, too, and I'm not even jealous.
I survived Y2K.
I love coffee, too, but not as much as I love Jesus.
I really want to lose 15 pounds, and the pictures at the top severely reinforce that desire. I came to that conclusion while looking at the pictures and eating Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies that I bought for my husband.
I think James Taylor and Chris Rice sound very similar. Do you?
Why is Antonella still with us?
Tomorrow night my kid is going to be in the school musical Cinderella. She has one solo line in a song, "I pray that he will marry me," regarding the prince, who is a very large eighth-grade boy. She is Girl #2, and I know that no one ever has, nor ever will, play Girl #2 with such sheer genius and musical talent.
My favorite old hymn is "Great is Thy Faithfulness." I want it played at my funeral. By the way, I have my funeral all planned. You are invited.
Well, that's all for today. Remember, leave a comment, and I'll come see you. I am from Indiana, and in the olden days, prairie days, people would holler "Hoo--sier?" when they came to visit, which translated means,"Who's here?" Now that I think about that, it's kind of rude, like when someone telephones and says, "WHO IS THIS?" when they called you. Anyway, if you hear "Hoosier!" it's me.
That's all, she wrote!
