Eleven Facts
1.  I am currently in my senior year of college at High Point University and student teaching at a high school.

2.  I have the cutest beagle in the world - Honeygirl

3.  I love shopping, but don't usually buy something if it's not on sale.

4.  I love making things! I've been into art since I was really young.  I enjoy crafting, sewing, etc.  The best part is looking at something and being able to say, "I made that!!"

5.  I tend to worry, overthink things, and analyze situations A WHOLE LOT MORE than I should.  When I get that way, I get depressed, and when I get depressed I listen to Christmas music or Elvis.  If it's really bad, I listen to Elvis Christmas music ;) haha but between that and prayer, I can usually get out of whatever rut I'm in.

6.  I'm AWFUL at making transitions.  It takes me forever to get used to change and learn to be happy with it.

7.  I just recently acquired a taste for barbecue sauce, and started liking chocolate again after a year long hiatus from sweets, due to a huge cavity in my wisdom tooth!

8.  I LOVE going to the movies.  The only ones I really enjoy seeing, though, are comedies and kiddie movies.  My favorite movies are cheesy romantic comedies.

9.  I took dance lessons for 14 years, piano lessons for 8 years, guitar lessons for 3 years, and drum lessons for 3 months.

10.  I have a huge appreciation (and longing) for past decades.  Old Hollywood fascinates me, 60s and 70s music rocks my world, I want to bring bell bottoms and big skirts back, and I could watch the Brady Bunch all day.  Sitcoms are awesome - Full House is my favorite show.

11.  I'm always busy...I love being busy.  And traveling.  I want to have my own jet one day so that I can be more places in a shorter amount of time.

Turtles & Pearls' Questions
1. What is your dream career?
My ultimate DREAM is to be a movie star or talk show host! Right now, my career path is education - I'm student teaching at a high school, and I'd like to be a teacher for a little while at least. I'm not sure what grade level I wanna teach, though. :)

2. What accessory can you not live without?
I could not live without my pearl studs! My collection keeps growing and I have countless pairs in all sizes (and a few different colors)!

3. What qualities do you look for in a significant other?
The most attractive thing a guy can do is have a relationship with God.  With that being said, I decided a few years ago that I wouldn't date anyone who wasn't on fire for Jesus.  I also have to have someone who has a great sense of humor and acts like a big kid (like me).  Luckily, I found someone who fits that criteria :)

4. What is one thing that really gets on your nerves?
BRAGGING. We are all created equally.  We all have different talents and opportunities in life, but that doesn't make one of us better than the other.

5. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I LOVE to write, and this blog thing looked like so much fun! I like seeing other girls' fashion ideas, sharing mine, and most of all, I like to share my feelings haha

6. What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday night?
Depends on the season, but I tend to go shopping, out to eat with friends or family, or maybe a basketball game in the winter.

7. Do you tend to plan ahead or do you just go with the flow?
Well I love to make lists and plan ahead.  I really thrive on doing that.  I make a list every month of things I want to accomplish that month (not that I always get them done).  But I've found that sometimes I have the most fun when I do things spontaneously and go with the flow! (Like Disney World a few weeks ago haha)

8. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you choose?
Hmm...well now that I've finally gone to Disney World, I think the next place I really wanna go is Los Angeles.  But I definitely want to go to Israel at some point in my life, and recently I've been wanting to visit Africa or Australia. 
...That's more than one.

9. Do you color or highlight your hair?
I used to only get highlights, but the past few years I've been coloring it.  I think I'm killing it :(

10. What is one movie you could watch again and again?
Home Alone 2

11. What is your go-to outfit?

2.  If you could pick ONE artist to listen to for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?

3.  What is one quality you look for in a significant other?(this is a repeat question but I liked it)

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…

Dating at 28 vs Dating at 21

I was just thinking the other day. I (over) think quite often. Sometimes it's good because it causes reflection, and this reflection was good.

I never really thought about the fact that I might be dating at 28 years old. I was never, EVER in a rush to get married, but there was a time when I assumed I'd be married by now. Looking back, it's interesting to see how things have changed from the time I was 21 until now, and why it's a really good thing I am still dating at 28.

All people are different. One of my best friends met her husband at 14. I have friends in their 30s that aren't married. Each person and situation are unique.

With that being said, I know that personally, I would not have been ready for marriage at 21. Or 22. Or even 25.

Dating at 21 for me was kind of like "What can you do for me? How can you make ME happy?" At 28 I've realized it should be "What can we do for God? What will make Him happy? And how can I make YOU happy?"
I had…

The Reality of Sin

Yesterday I was blessed to sit through THREE amazing church services. Lately, I feel like I really need to absorb as much of the Word as I can on Sundays in order to thrive through the week. It is so easy to get caught up in the stress of daily life, and I've found that the best way to combat that is to be poured into through spiritual teaching. I can't pour into my students or my family or my friends or my middle school girls on Wednesday nights if I'm not constantly growing and learning. 

It's also really cool / interesting to sit at different churches with entirely different groups of people and hear the Word presented in different ways.

Different churches appeal more to families or young people or older people for different reasons.

One thing I realized as I sat in my home church yesterday morning (OakView Baptist) is that although we don't have the lights and the music and coffee, we do hear the Word in a way that really gets deep into your soul.

It's a trend …
