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)

4.  If there was only ONE season in the year, what would you want it to be?

5.  Heels or flats?

6.  What is the best vacation you've ever been on?

7.  What's your favorite perfume/scent?

8.  Favorite outfit (type) to wear?

9.  What's your life motto or a quote you live by?

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…
