He came that we might have LIFE more abundantly. He came to set us free! Are you struggling with something? Tired of the battle? Reach for Jesus. Get in His Word. BE STILL before Him.

Day 4 & The Self Tanner Search

Saturday, October 4, 2014

Every pale girl with an aversion to tanning beds can identify with the need to find the PERFECT self tanner.

I've tried Jergens... not a huge fan. Although the formula goes on like an everyday lotion, there is no color indicator... so streaks are inevitable as you cannot see where you are applying... BOO! Nobody wants to be a tie-dyed pumpkin. And also a bummer, Jergens SMELLS like a self-tanner. Very strong and really annoying. 

And THEN, we have Tarte Brazilliance. A bit more pricey, yes, but it smells like a cupcake and there is a color indicator so that you can see where you apply and therefore (hopefully!) prevent streaks. 

I am currently wearing this and hope and pray I don't wake up like an oompa-loompa in the morning, otherwise my plans for the day will change really drastically... 

Anyone have an AMAZING self-tanner you would like to recommend?! Please share in the comments below!



Day 3 and high-school football

Friday, October 3, 2014

So, this post will be terribly short because it is 10:30 it JUST hit me that I have a blog post to write!

So...  tonight I was at a highschool football game tonight watching my big little brother play an awesome game. And they won! Which is always my favorite.

If you look closely... Jake is #6 in the middle of the tackle... PROUD of him!

Football is my favorite game to watch... It's quick moving... there are tons of food and fans and you don't have to worry about being hit by a foul ball or stung by a bee or bit by a random dog... I love it!

And... that's all I got folks!



31 Days and Leather Leggings

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Hi ya'll. Welcome to Day 2 of the 31 Days writing challenge.

I recently discovered vloggers... Yes, I am well aware that youtube is the culture of today's tweens and teens... but there is some fun vloggers out there... particularly from the UK! I love to hear the way people with English accents speak... they sounds so lovely and much more classy I think! Anways, check out vlogger Hannah Maggs. She documents her daily life as a wife and mom of the most ADORABLE baby boy! Kind of fun!

Another extremely exciting thing happening in my life is the massive Forever 21 order headed my way... I may have went a bit crazy when I threw items in my shopping cart in the middle of the night last weekend... but I had a gift card, okay?!

Anyways, currently the most exciting item I am waiting for are the leather leggings! Can't wait.  

Now, I ordered a pair of faux leather leggings from H&M last year and that was like trying to slip on a pair of pants that were made out of rubber boots. Literally NOTHING was stretchy about those leggings! Not comfortable and I swear they smelled like a tire. Needless to say those are in the bottom of a drawer somewhere. 

So I am HOPING that these new faux leather leggings from Forever 21 are better. Because they were a huge investment of course... NOT. 

So stay tuned on this highly exciting moment in my life. I will let you know how that turns out! Maybe there will be pictures!

And that... was Day 2.



31 Days... and short term relationships

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

So... I've had a series of very short-term relationships... 

with my blog...

Last week I logged into blogger after realizing it has been over a YEAR since I have posted! Gah... How's that for inconsistency??? I LOVE to write. And I LOVE reading other's blogs. But somewhere between the craziness that is life and the fact that blogging, for me at least, requires a certain amount of transparency, which isn't easy for me.  It takes... courage to pour your personal life out on a page and hit publish, and so somehow I've never managed to do it! I realized today that my blogging relationships have always been short-term and have never really developed into a full-blown habit...Does that mean I am a commitment phobe?! LOL. 

So enter... the 31 Days challenge. This is a challenge that many bloggers and writers are taking... to write every single day in October. And so that is what I am doing. Starting today, October 1st, I will be posting Every. Single. Day. through October 31st. Scary, I know. 

So, why am I joining in the #Write31days? Because I love a challenge. Love a goal. And I love writing SO MUCH. And so here I go! 

What will I write about? Whatever I want.... haha! But seriously...  I will not be scheduling posts ahead of time. Possible topics could range from sharing about my day at work  as I am in the midst of planning one of our biggest fundraising events of the year... to my family... to some of my favorite makeup and skin care products that I cannot live without... to my FAVORITE iPhone apps... to how God is teaching me to trust Him in the desert. 

So join me! Write me nice comments and keep reading and MAKE SURE I actually write every day! Haha. 



PS. Each day I will update this post with links to each day's new posts below (so they will all be linked in "one" blog post)... so check back daily!
