Do you all follow along with #fridayintroductions? They are the chance to remind everyone who you are following and why they are in your insta-feed. I am Shannon and I live in Washington, DC with my family (husband and two boys) in a teeny tiny apartment. I'm a former politico who now mentors DC's finest interns because I'm passionate about people in their 20s. A bunch of you are new followers since Influence Conference, so let's open up some questions. Ask away! This is also my #stitchfixfriday post! I sat down and blogged today for the first time in a while, hop over for outfit (and my 14th stitch fix) details!

These two planters make me smile as the pass them, reminding me of my friend @amykratzer and her sweet encouragement. // Psalm 73:26 has been the verse on my heart for months and God keeps brining me back to it. "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." What is on your heart this Friday morning?
nadinewouldsay : Have you heard "give me faith" by elevation worship? This reminded me of that song. โค๏ธ
beaktweets : Love this. I need to write that scripture on my heart.
amykratzer : @thescribblepad you are so sweet! I love that sweet potato vine and I love that scripture! I think of you often and can't wait to see you again. โค๏ธ

How many of you bought this at Costco, put in your freezer and only noticed the "DO NOT FREEZE" on the night you planned to cook it for dinner? Or is it just me? #ihavenobackupplan #fingerscrossed #thatshouldbeanemoji

thescribblepad : @olive_thethings right? Fingers crossed, I always want that emoji!
thescribblepad : @sonjalranslow it seems like it turned out.
thescribblepad : @fdague yeah you do! I just filled up my car for $2.91/gallon without leaving DC!!
thescribblepad : @itsahuntlife I'll let you know how it tastes.
beccaleggio : I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to use a fingers crossed emoji. You'd think of all the other random ones on there that never get used there should be a finger crossed one ๐ŸŽซ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ’ˆ๐Ÿš ๐Ÿšกโ›ฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฐ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ—ฟโ™จ๏ธ๐Ÿช๐Ÿญ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“›๐Ÿ”–๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“ฏ๐Ÿšช๐Ÿ”ฉ๐Ÿ”‘๐Ÿ“ ๐Ÿ“ก #random

I love paper and craft supplies, so much so I've held on to things I simply don't need. Would you all be up for a paper insta-sale? If I get enough likes (interest), I'll aim for the first weekend in November!
aeprice44 : Great idea! Could others sell as well. Then mail to each other?
anchoredheartco : ^^i love this idea
josieortega : I'd bid on freezer inventory!
ashleechu : I'm a fan of all of this.
annabgoods : YES

Exasperated with me, both of my boys decided to lie face down on the ground while I was doing laundry this afternoon. These rainy days require patience and a lot of grace. #thrivewhereistand

I had to turn Hudson's car seat around earlier this week and forgot to turn it back. The pouring rain deterred me from fixing it and boy is he thrilled. He immediately got excited about the DVD player. Could he be any cuter? #hudsonmark

This is called a cheesecake pumpkin. When it's puréed, it has a light an fluffy texture. It's delicious in baked goods. Plus, they are pretty. #csainspired #orchardcountryproduce

whatupdc : Are you at Yards??
aliceingraz : Will you link to the recipe for pumpkin pancakes you pictured a little while ago. They were topped with blueberry sauce/syrup. They looked absolutely divine!
thescribblepad : @whatupdc yes, that's where my farm share is. But I am on my way to school now.
thescribblepad : @aliceingraz yes! I will do a post of a bunch of my pumpkin recipes.
aliceingraz : Brilliant, thank you!

Apple cider donuts forever.
mrscaballero512 : ๐Ÿ™Œ We took our 1 year old to Cox Farms a couple weekends ago. I'm considering making the trek again because I only ate 2 donuts during that visit. Not enough. Never enough.

kathleenharveyoils : Ohhhh I forgot about those
thetinytwig : ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ
