"Blessed" (TBT)

This is absolutely perfect for Throwback Thursday. We had two speakers at church tonight who really inspired me to write more about relationships and how to keep God first. So I dug up this old Facebook "note" from Friday, August 27, 2010, 3:42 am. Blessed. A few things that happened earlier, friends' situations, and feelings that have been building up inside of me recently led me to take a look back at all of my old notes on here and some journal entries. In those, I found a girl that I barely remember, but at the same time I remember her very well because she's not that far away. She was broken time and time again, and wasn't sure how to handle it except by letting it all out with words.
I've always trusted God and I always knew He had a plan for me, but it wasn't until this year that I gave God total control of my life. Before, I had such a tight grip on the things that I thought were right in my life that I couldn't see that God was telling me "…

Break Highlights

This is, in no particular order (at all), the rest of my Christmas break...after Christmas.

Day after Christmas: Shopping and J&S
My sister and I hit up the Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale. You pretty much HAVE to go the day after Christmas to get what you want because it goes fast. We got a bunch of good stuff.

I also used the Belk gift card that Zach gave me. I got things I had wanted for a while, but had promised myself I wouldn't cave and spend money on. Perfect that I got a gift card!
 One of the items was a Lilly Bloom bag - they are not only super cute, but also made of recycled water bottles. I think that's SWELL :)

Chanelle, Ashley, and I ate at my favorite place - J&S! It was so delicious.

Later, my mom, Ashley, and I went back to Belk's and got the perfect pants. You can read about them here:

Tuesday Motivation

I'm trying SO HARD to get back into the habit of blogging! I was doing so well right after Christmas but now I'm having a hard time. So today I'm gonna post some "Tuesday Motivation" since I obviously missed Monday. But hey, it's still the beginning of the week, right? And we can always use a little motivation. :) Quit talking and begin doing! Just get out there and DO what you've been saying you're gonna do. I kept saying "I'll blog tomorrow" every day, but then I saw this quote/picture on Facebook and decided to take action with my blogging. Along with a lot of other things in my life that I've been putting off. So there you have it, and there'e plenty more where that came from because I have a LOT of blogging to catch up on. The past month has been super fun, and I need to document it all! So stay tuned. eBa 


Yesterday was Elvis's birthday.

That is all. eBa
