Earlier this year, I set some goals for myself. Actually, it was in January to be exact…so original, I know. Some of the goals, I shared and some I kept to myself. One of the goals I kept to myself until today is what I’m going to share in this blog post.
I’m sure right about now you’re shouting at your screen, “Tell us, woman!! We need to know!!” and I hear you, I do. Therefore, I will cut right to the chase and let you in on one of my top secret goals. Okay, well…maybe not TOP secret but you know…sorta kinda secret anyway.
Happy Monday, friends! I thought I’d do a quick little post highlighting some of my newest décor updates for ya! I recently went on an online mission to find new dining chairs at a reasonable price and scored big time at my favorite store…you guessed it…Target!!
I also updated some of the décor around my console wall in the living room by adding a few little inexpensive pieces along with a couple of my favorite photos.
Sometimes, it just takes a little research and some digging around your own home to find that little bit of extra pizzazz a space needs. I spent very little money on these updates but I think they make a huge difference.
Hello again, friends! I have had a busy couple of weeks between learning and writing new music and Spring Break…I got behind on my blog writing. But I’m back in a big way today! I have finally accomplished a decorating goal I have been longing to complete for a couple of years at least! It was my least favorite room in my house and now, I love it!
Wanna know what it is??
When I was a little girl, I had an idea of my “dream” bedroom. I wanted a beautiful canopy bed with a pink canopy and matching comforter. I dreamed of a room full of soft pillows and pastel pinks. I wanted a big white wicker chair to lounge on and a beautiful white desk with a glass top to do my homework on. I seriously had it all planned out in my mind. I never got that room but I hoped that one day, I’d have a little girl and I would make her room my dream room.
So, when it came time to upgrade my daughter’s room from a nursery/toddler room to a “big girl” room…I was ecstatic! I could finally have my dream room and live vicariously through my little girl!
Except for one little problem…
Since the sun is shining today and the forecast calls for 70 degree highs for the next 10 days…I decided to write a post about a few of my favorite things…being that 70 degree days are one of them of course.
Last weekend, my family and I went on a little road trip so I could attend a blogger meet-up. I was excited because it’s the first one I’ve ever gone to and since we love road trips, it was a good excuse to pack up and head out.
We’ve all heard the saying, “Never say ‘never’”, and while I agree with the sentiment of that saying, I think there are some exceptions. I mean…the whole saying itself is contradictory in its essence really. By saying “Never say ‘never’”, you’ve just said “never”. So, even though I believe you should always hope and believe for the best and attempt to do the impossible (as long as it’s safe and legal and ethical of course) I think there are times when the word “never” can be used and should be used.
If you’re sure of the “never-ness” of it all…by all means…say “never”!
Happy Friday, my friends! I hope you’ve had a fantastic week. I’m going to tread new territory today on my little blog and write a fashion post! What? Yep. Now, I am by no means a fashion blogger or even a fashionista but, I do love a cute outfit! I mean…what girl doesn’t? So, today I’m doing my first ever “Fashion Friday” post and I hope you enjoy it.
The Polar Vortex is upon much of the country today and while we are probably experiencing it in its mildest forms, it still is ridiculously cold and gloomy for a South Texas winter. So, I decided I wanted to write something that would bring some joy and light into this gloomy day and as I was thinking about what exactly I could write, I came across this scripture:
After reading that, I stopped thinking about how cold and gloomy it is today and started thinking about how amazing God’s love for us is. It’s a love so complete, so powerful, so unconditional that no matter where we are or what we are doing…it is always there and always perfect. The God who created the entire universe knows MY name. Not only that, He loves me so completely, that I can never do anything to lose it. I can never outrun it. I can never disqualify myself from it. His love is PERFECT.
Do you have an awkward or empty corner in your house that you don’t know what to do with? I do. I couldn’t figure out what to put there but I knew leaving it empty wasn’t going to cut it. During the holidays, I don’t have that problem because it has been our Christmas tree spot since we moved in but keeping a Christmas tree up all year is not an option so…now what?
There are some things in life I have discovered are completely lost on me…things that I just don’t get or things that I don’t understand why other people enjoy. Here are some of those things…
