Conversation #77: Daily Outfit

Okay, so I haven't posted any pictures for a while, and I have a lot of backlog photos, but here is my most recent one from yesterday. 


Jacket: The Limited, TJ Maxx, $20
Tee: Lands' End, Sears, $2
Pants: NY and CO., $? (don't remember, but I think $15)
Shoes: Coconuts clogs, DSW, $32
Scarf: Gift from Mom, free for me

It was a little cooler yesterday so I could pull out a jacket.  I love jackets and coats, but don't need them much down here.  I can't figure out how to layer items in a cute way during the warmer months without being a hot sweaty mess - I mean a glowing mess!

I'm looking forward to Easter this weekend, and I hear the Good Friday service at our church on Friday evening is really amazing.  I'm excited to be able to go this year.  I feel like God has so been working on my heart lately, but I keep pushing Him away for fear of what He will ask of me.  Why do I keep doing that when I see so many Christians around me that have let Him in and are enjoying the abundant life?  I used to be less afraid when I was younger, but as I grow older, I let my fears hold me back so much more.

I just finished up the study One in a Million by Priscilla Shirer, and I want to be one in a million (it talks about the journey the Israelites took through the wilderness to the Promised Land and how only two out of two million got to enter and enjoy the land of milk and honey and abundant living with God). I don't know what might happen in the future, but I hope I fight my fears soon and become one in a million.  I really should devote more to this topic so look for that in the future.

Until then - Happy Thursday!!!

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #204: My Jesus...

Oh Facebook and social media of all kinds...we have a love hate/relationship.  Lately, these days, I feel it is more hate only because I allow myself to be depressed by things I see.  I recently told someone the other day that I had lost faith in humanity, and then it hit me, that is exactly where I should be.  We are a fallen people in a fallen world, and I should have NO faith in humanity.  Why did that take me 30 years to figure out?

So there has been a lot of political/social stuff swirling around, and division among Christians, and I hate it.  Like I said, I have no faith in humanity and realizing that was a good reminder it should ALL be in the Lord.  Even though there are definitely things going on in this world that reject the truth of the Gospel, Jesus, the thing that scares me the most these days is the phrase I alluded to in the title: "my Jesus wouldn't believe this" or "I can't follow a God that would say that" or "I just don't believe…
