Camera Roll Goodies

Pin It Now!

I found myself scrolling through my camera roll today. What I found really brought a smile to my face. My favorite part of pictures and picture taking is looking back on them. Each one tells a story and holds a memory.

I thought it would be fun to share some of them today.

Birthday Blessings

Pin It Now!

As I celebrate another year of life today, I'm reminded of the special people God has placed in my life. I didn't get to choose the family I was born into. BUT, I'm so blessed that God handpicked those people. 

I've been given wonderful parents who love me unconditionally. They've taught me so much in my 28 years of life. I'll forever be grateful. I have a sister who is also a friend; she understands things about me that no one ever will. That's what's special about the bond of sisterhood.

I've been blessed by beautiful and rich friendships which are truly an answer to prayer. I'm beyond blessed.

Most of all, I've been blessed by the gift of a husband. This man means more to me than I could ever hope to express in words. He is my perfect. I thank the Lord he knit us together in His love. 

I have been given the gift of life from a Savior that has known me before the world even began. He gave me life knowing full well that I would mess up...daily. He loved me enough to look beyond that. I owe Him my life. I will forever be indebted to Him and what He did for me on the cross. That's the richest blessing of all.  

It's so easy to let day to day living cloud out a grateful heart. I don't want to be that person. I want to take time to notice my blessings on this special and every single day. I want today to remind me that every other day of the year is worth celebrating. Life is worth celebrating. 

I hope you can do something today, big or small, to celebrate your life and the lives of others around you!

Moisture Renew Vox Box

Pin It Now!

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick: I love the girly, bright purple packaging. It would be easy to find among all the little things that end up in the bottom of a purse. The texture of the lipstick is spot on. It goes on as smooth as chapstick. I wish I would have been able to try it in a different color; something less punchy. I would definitely consider purchasing this in the correct color.

Product Grades:
{1= not for me + 10 = this is right up my alley}
Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick: 7 out of 10 
I'm docking points for the color. Had this lipstick been the right color I would have scored it a 10. 

I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.

High Five for Friday!

Pin It Now!
Happy Friday, friends! 
This lady is thrilled to welcome the weekend. It looks like we'll be rained in, but that won't stop me from enjoying it.

Here's a peek at this past week: 

1// I've jumped on the bandwagon and decided to try my hand at watercolor. I can't get over the fact that each little color pod is called a watercolor cake. Makes me want to eat 'em.  No worries, I have restrained.

2// My favorite little guy has been especially full of snuggles and I just can't get enough. I love that he wants to be wherever I am.

3// My sister stopped by to pick me up for our tenth Target run this week. As soon as she walked in I demanded that she stand in front of a wall so I could snap a pic of her growing bump.

4// The Mr. and my Sister's beau managed to lift our new bathtub up through our second story balcony. They didn't even break a sweat, those two. I was there to simply document their progress through photographs. Little fur baby had no idea what was going on so he stood right in the middle of all the action.

5// I stopped home for lunch yesterday and thought it best to enjoy a strawberry cupcake. It was the  highlight of my day.  I think now is a good time to have another.

High Five for Friday!

Pin It Now!

Happy Friday! I'm so relieved that Friday finally decided to show its lovely face. It's been a busy week around here so I'm glad to see the weekend is in sight! 

Here are this week's highlights: 

1// I took some time to give myself a mani and pedi. My nails were overdue for some attention. Now they feel so pretty. These are two of my favorite Essie colors; Splash of Grenadine and Turquoise and Caicos.

2// I spent time with my darling little neice, Charley Louise. She is the sweetest thing.

3// New kicks! There's something about new athletic shoes that will inspire you to get out and be active. 
4// My sister sent me this picture of her growing bump. It's been so exciting to watch her grow. I can't wait to meet my little nephew in July.

5// This week has brought much progress on our master bathroom project. While this very large project can be a little overwhelming, it feels awesome to have had a productive week. We get to check the plumber and the heating and cooling off the list! Now we move on to insulating and dry walling. I'll share a picture soon.
