Momand Meah.


You get it? It's a play on words. It sounds like Momma Mia, but really it's Mom(and) Meah. I could have also done, Momand Me, Uhhhh. See? That, too, would have sounded like Momma Mia.

Okay. Whatever.

I'm on NO SLEEP PEOPLE. You might wanna give me a break.

Well, mom flew in today. Her and I have quite a big weekend ahead of us. Oh, yes, we do. All the ladies at the South County Christian Center church In St. Louis, Missouri have decided to throw caution to the wind and have us as their speakers at their women's event this weekend.

Apparently A LOT of other speakers already had engagements.

So her and I will be flying out on Friday morning to our big gig. I think we are going to celebrate by springing for a $8 Coke on the plane. Whoo! Now, that's what you call high living right there.

So will you pray for us this weekend? We are so excited and certainly feel like we have a good message to bring to these ladies. In fact, I feel so self-assured that I can say with all certainty that they will either LOVE us or we will be asked to kindly refrain from ever mentioning that we darkened their door.

Yep, I am absolutely certain one of these two things will, indeed, happen.

Let's pray for the former. Shall we?

Or maybe there is no women's retreat at all and this is Mark Burnett's (creator of Survivor) new idea for reality programming. Put two fluffy women in a twin engine prop plane, make them flag down a shuttle, miss lunch, then put them in a hotel room all weekend long with nothing but a two day old newspaper and 18 pounds of Spanx.

Now THAT is some good T.V.

Okay, seriously now. Y'all pray. I mean this is the same woman who unloaded her suitcase yesterday with gifts for my kiddos. All she pulled out for me was a Hairstyle magazine, to which she said, "Remi, hand this to your momma. Cuz I know how she loves to read about the latest hairstyles. And also because she really, really needs a new one."

Dear Lord, come quickly.

Well you look very pretty for someone with no sleep!!
I hope you and your Mom have a safe trip and a wonderful weekend!!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Your mama is so stylish! She is rocking those highlights. Great picture!

Stacia said...

You two look like an entry in the mother daughter look alike contest. What a FAB photo!
I truly hope you enjoy your time together and don't let her little jabs get the best of you. Enjoy!

Good luck with the speaking engagement. How I wish I could come see you. I'm starting to think you should bring Remi and Rocco down to SC in order to properly see the ocean and to come to the SC State Fair. Either that or I'm going to have to find some reason to go to Tennessee.

Shelley said...

Wow. You two are knockouts.
I wish that I were coming to hear you speak. As much as I love your blog, girl please. They would probably escort me for the premises though. I tend to get a little loud.
Good luck and God bless this weekend.

Sissy said...

I would love to be at that conference right now. If you speak anything like you write, this will be a womderful and fun event. Have fun!

Rhea said...

I'd watch you on a reality show any day, Melissa! You rock!

Good luck, you're gonna be great!

Petts Allowed said...

You should practice your message for everyone on the plane-they may even give you FREE $8 cokes,and it would take everyones mind off the flying! Have a great time, Kathi

Lauren W said...

Good luck! Have a great weekend :)

Wep said...

StitchinByTheLake said...

I do love your blog and, yes, I have already prayed for your weekend. And your time with your mother. And your flight. And for good food, joyful moments, and beautiful music of praise. And if you want to move next door to me I'll even bring you a coke and cookies. "Cause I think you'd be the most fun neighbor ever. blessings, marlene

Lynda said...

What a beautiful photo - I imagine you two are going to rock that retreat!

Tara said...

You both are absolutely gorgeous! Holy smokes! I'll be sure to keep you both in my prayers. I'm sure those ladies will truly enjoy both of you speaking. I'm jealous!

Sheri said...

I'll be praying, but I'm so envious that I don't get to attend. Ya'll are going to ROCK that conference!!! Have a fantastic time, I can't wait to hear about it!

Kendrawolf said...

Great pic of you and mom. I'll be praying.

Rhonda said...

I love that picture of the two of you! Awesome!

Oh, I tell you, what moms of babes truly love is a weekend away. Even if you totally bomb (which you won't) and they have to throw you out the door onto your fluffy bums (which they won't), then just appreciate a girl's weekend.

Have a good one!

Ashley said...

hahaha! You always have me laughing out loud! hahah... hair magazine! What a nice present. I guess she thinks you don't have them there where you are.

Lisa@BlessedwithGrace said...

Oh, I wish I could attend that conference! Love the comment on about 18 pounds of Spanx. LOL! Unfluffy people just don't understand! Have wonderful time!

Lacey in the Sky said...

I hope you, your Mom & your 18lbs of spanx have a safe and fabulous trip! Goodluck!

Rachel Rowell said...

I LOVE your "about me" section! I just had to tell you that.

Lisa said...

The sad part is that most people think that these stories about your mom are probably fabricated.

I'll be praying but I KNOW that you both will do great. God doesn't take us through storms in our lives for nothin'.

LOVE YALL
