Christmas Bows

Okay, so by now, it's probably pretty obvious that I'm OBSESSED with Christmas... I'm obsessed with anything that has to do with Christmas.  Accessories, clothes, colors, patterns, etc.  Ever since I was little, I've loved Christmas BOWS.  My mom used to make me wear them on my dresses, on my shoes, socks, ears, head, wherever! Haha.  This year, I found some really cute ones I'd like to share.

 The ones above are from Claire's.  They were $5 and I thought they were SUPER cute.  The only problem with them is that the bobby pins they come on are really tiny (probably for little girls with fine hair) and of course won't slide easily into my thick hair haha. So I just switch them onto my own bobby pins.  Aren't they adorable though??


This is the bow I put on my car.  The picture is kinda blurry, but it's the best one I have right now.  It's a candy cane bow! I got it at the drug store.  I like it because it's different from the usual red bow I put on the front of my car every year.

 This is the first bow I've ever made! My friend Heather showed me how to make them the other day, and I'm addicted now.  I love the green and brown for Christmas.


These are two of the newest additions to my hair bow collection.  The one on the top is a gift from Brooke.  She made it for me! I looove the little lollipop in the middle.  The one under it is one me and Alex saw at Belk's and HAD to have...40% off so we got them haha.  Now we match! I've been wearing mine like every day.

This stuff is from Hobby Lobby.  The tiny bows are 99 cents a pack, and four come in a pack.  You really can't beat that.  And you can do anything with them! I put a few on bobby pins and wore them in my hair, and I used safety pins to fasten some to my various fleece jackets to add some holiday spirit! They also have polka dotted ones.  I love the ribbon beside them, and used that to decorate my car keys, my dog's collar, and various other things.  Adding red and green bows to everything adds a little touch of Christmas everywhere! Sometimes I do tend to go a little crazy haha.


What about y'all? Do y'all have cute Christmas bows / ideas of how to use them??

SSP for Warby Parker!

A couple years ago a friend told me about this really trendy site where she ordered her eyeglasses. I had asked her where she got such cute eyewear and her answer was  "Warby Parker!"
I went to the website and was overwhelmed by all the choices! Not only were the glasses trendy, but there were many traditional looks, and awesome colorful frames as well. There were countless options for both men and women, in prescription glasses, non-prescription, AND sunglasses!
I feel like sporting glasses rather than contacts has made a comeback in a big way, and now glasses are an accessory and make a bold statement to complete your look in addition to helping you see.
If you order from WP, you can have FIVE pairs sent to you if the glasses are "available for try-on" before you actually buy them! I have a friend who did this, and it was so easy and fun. I feel like many times, people are wary of ordering frames online since they can't try them on and see how they look, but Warb…

Riches I Need Not, Nor Man's Empty Praise

I haven't written anything on here since MARCH. ...not anything from my own spiritual journey. I've done promotions for two companies and that's all I've posted. I am realizing that when I write, I am a better person. I can't believe I haven't written on here in seven months. It makes me sad. I've felt a void!

Ironically, though, what I came here to write is the same topic as what I last posted about - what others think. I found a version of "Be Thou My Vision" that I really love about a month ago, so it's been on repeat. As I'm busy with everything going on in life, I have to constantly remind myself to keep my eyes set on Christ. The line that has stuck out to me the most over the past month is
"Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise."

I'm teaching 9th and 11th grade this semester. In both classes we are reading books set in the Great Depression. We've had discussions (sometimes debates) about how money can't …

Fix My Eyes on You

On the day I called You answered me And the hope in my soul increased I lift my hands And turn my eyes To the God who heals my heart And gives me peace
You are more than My words could ever say You are Lord over all Over all of my days I will see this season through I will fix my eyes on You Only You ~Hillsong
I heard this song for the first time the other day when I was really anxious about some stuff during my planning period at work. I didn't feel good and my mind was a little overwhelmed.  During those times when my mind is so boggled, it's hard to just sit back and have peace.  During those tumultuous times when it seems like everything is going the opposite of what you'd planned and everything seems to spin out of control, it's hard to remember that God, the Creator of all being, is in control. During those times of change and confusion, it's hard to trust that everything is working out just the way God has planned it to. During those times when life's just p…
