See What Had Happened Was..

I get bored. Easily. Not with thrifting. Just with talking ONLY about thrifting. Thank you guys so much for supporting us here, but there's so many more things that I'm talented in that I'd also like to share with you. So I've been working on a space here,  to share. Yes, there will still be thrifting stories, experiences and fashion but there will be more. We'll chat about parenting, living this crazy thing called life and I'll share my views on relationships, fashion and beauty and of course my favorite topic, food.

It's simple really,  I just can't, won't and hate boxes. So, if you're not busy, how about hopping over to the new site and chill with me for a while?

Green with Envy

Envy. That green-eyed monster is deep isn't she? She weakens you, exposes your self-esteem issues without you even knowing it and makes you admit that somewhere in your life, you're lacking. You may not acknowledge it or even believe it to be true; because then you'd have to admit that you're a hater. But, admitting it is the 1st step.  I've learned instead of being envious of someone and their blessings, it'll be more beneficial to continuously work on me and achieving my greatness. Why would I  want someone else's blessings when God has my very own waiting for me?  It's up to me to open my arms, eyes, heart and most importantly my hands to receive it.

Just a lil truth to kick off your Monday.

What A Snow Day

It's snowing in the South! And I'm really excited about it, like I really, really am. But, I'm most excited at the fact that I got a free day off from work! Won't He do it! Right now, I'm typing this post lounging in my leopard onesie chilling super hard in my bed. I'm going to enjoy this because it's back to work tomorrow!

   How crazy is it that I was able to get away with removing my jacket to take this pic on Sunday, and now today there's snow! Snow people! Where's my hot chocolate!

Filling In the Gaps

Hey there beautiful people! Have you ever forgotten something or had so much going on in your life til you're so consumed with the UNimportant things, that the IMportant things slip your mind? And no, I'm not talking about remembering to pick up milk from the grocery store or remembering to pay a bill. No, I'm talking about remembering you, your soul...your greatness.

 Protecting your soul should be just as important as the rhetorical things you encounter in your every day life. Remembering your greatness,  forgetting your past and accepting that you truly are awesome should be a part of your to-do list daily. Right under honoring God.

And don't you dare forget to smile. You have much to be smiling about wouldn't you agree? If you're reading this then that means you're here today -still among the living! 
Go ahead and give him praise!

Our lives are filled with so many distractions that's caused gaps or weakened the core of our very being. But, if we remember what's truly important in this life we been blessed with, we can begin to fill in the gaps and be happy, successful, receive love and most importantly give it. 

 I've said all that to say...We've found a church, that speaks to our soul and dagnabit we are excited! Yeah, I could've said that in the beginning but I'm feeling Christianlife, bear with me people. :)
