Caffeinated Randomness - Twins and the Teal Purse

You think you really know a person, even when you talk on the phone everyday. But you don't really know a person until you spend 1 week with them for 10 hours a day. Not that I'm complaining. I love the Evil Twin and she loves me. We like the fact that we are not completely the same. We love the fact that we can argue about something and still remain friends no matter what.

Earlier this week, one of her close friends that I had not met before, but hear about all the time,) came over for lunch. After being around us for three hours, she determined that we truly are the Evil Twins. We sound a like, act a like (for the most part) and the most importantly, think a like. We may not agree on some things, but on the important ones (yes, Holland is going to win the World Cup!), we are two peas in a pod.

This week we have listened to Holland win the Semi-Final in the World Cup series (HUP HOLLAND HUP). I don't think the children have seen us jump so high, or sing so loud in a long time. We've had major discussions about why we as women don't talk about eating disorders with each other to the emerging church and the implications on our lives and our Christian communities. We've enjoyed coffee, chocolate and her amazing teal purse (which may be in my car on the way home). I could not have asked for a better week.

I'm very thankful for this week that my husband blessed me with to stay with my friend. When another friend we saw this week asked if we had done anything fun, I replied yes, hung out with Debbie.

Now go and check out some more randomness with our Caffeinated Chieftain at Under Grace Over Coffee.

What FUN! I think spending that time with a friend would be a huge blessing. You can remember those moments when life gets it does at times. The final World Cup game is going to be interesting for sure!

Have a fab weekend!

I'm so glad you came by Finding Heaven today and SO glad that you got some much needed girl time. We all need it from time to time or we will literally go insane!
