My Girls Night Out with Candace Cameron Bure

Courtney and Candace2

Last week Candace Cameron Bure (aka – DJ Tanner from Full House) came to my hometown in Ohio to stay at my “real life” friend’s house – Clare from Peak313.com.

I’m sure Clare will have lots of fun pictures on her blog soon from their weekend together.

Anyhow, on Friday evening Ruth from TheBetterMom.com drove in from out of town and Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen (who is also a “real life” hometown friend), came over and we had a Girls Night Out!

One of the reasons I am drawn to Candace is because of how faith and family oriented she is.  I just love her genuine heart and solid beliefs.

So here’s how our evening went.  First we had dinner.

Then we had dessert.

Miss Fitness aka Peak313 loves to eat off everyone else’s plates – here she’s caught in the act!

Then we had a group photo taken.

Then we went for a walk away from the crowds and sat down together and visited for an hour… and took more pictures.

People recognized Candace as DJ Tanner but did not overly imposed.  Candace politely paused for a photo with strangers and then went back to chatting with us.

Being the crazy bloggers that we are – we were all instagramming on the spot!  Janelle and I snuck into a selfie of Clare and Ruth – and the funniest part – Candace picked up my phone and took a photo of us!!!  :)

Then we went back to Clare’s house where Clare swiftly changed into her pajamas and we all got comfy on the couch talking.  Over the course of our long evening together, we covered every topic under the sun.  Hanging with Candace was like hanging out with an old friend.  Her “girl next door” personality and humble transparency makes her easy to love.  She is clearly a woman who has God at the center of her life.

Faithful readers, will you please be lifting Candace up in your prayers?  She lives and works in a challenging and unique culture.  I am so grateful for the place God has planted her and for her courage to be honest about her faith.   Please pray that God opens doors for her, protects her family and gives her strength as she balances her family, work and ministry.  And when you see new projects she is working on, please support her —facebook, tweet and share it with your friends. To God be the glory!

Walk with the King!

    How cool!! Maybe next year you can get her to speak at the WLW conference??? I’ve been a fan of hers and her brother’s LONG before they announced they were Christians!! So pleased to see how they’ve maintained their ‘walk with the King” and haven’t let celebrity get to them!!!

    Today, I’m mourning the loss of a beloved actor, Cory Monteith from Glee. So sad that such a young life was taken so soon. He was very talented. I”m praying for his family as well as his girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele. She must be absolutely devastated right now. So very sad.

  3. This is fabulous! I love Candace and I love each of the rest of you ladies too … how fun that you all got to hang together! =)

  4. Courtney- Thank you SO much for your sweet words and encouragement! It was my pleasure to finally meet you all in person, although I feel like we’ve known each other for a really long time. I love how blogging and social media has connected us all. Much love to you and looking forward to next time we meet! And thanks to all Women Living Well fans and followers for your support of me. Blessings to you all!

  5. ABSOLUTELY…I ve already been praying for her, and her brother Kirk in their endeavors for the Lord! Your photos were pretty neat. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  6. In Ethiopian culture it is perfectly acceptable to eat off of others plates, Clare would fit in :-))

  7. Hi, I’ve been following Candace for quite some time now. Great to see this post & now I’m following/subscribed to all of you ladies! I love hearing about women who are living their lives to make a difference & helping others to do the same. It is exactly what I am trying to do as well with my life, family, art business.

  8. So much fun! I’m a big fan of Candace. Looks like you guys had a blast! Thanks for sharing.
