Monday Motivation!

Happy Monday!
 
I had a fantastic weekend. On Friday afternoon, I had my first substituting job, relaxed and hung out with my family, and then met two of my lovely Alpha Chi sisters at Carter Brothers BBQ!
It was so much fun catching up with Leanna and Elyse, and the food was so yummy.
Afterward, Leanna, my sister, and I went to see Safe Haven since Leanna had not seen it.
 
That was the fourth time I've seen Safe Haven, and each time I find something new and different to love about it. It is easily one of my very favorite movies. We had so much fun!
 
On Saturday, I got to go to the wedding of a friend I've known since we were little and danced together - Meredith! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and so sweet.
 
Right after the wedding, Ashley, Michael, my mom, and I went to a 65th birthday party for one of my mom's former co-workers. It was at the Women's Club of HP and the food was DELICIOUS.
 
Instead of going out and celebrating St. Patty's Day, I ended up getting caught up in a few hours of croakie designing on Saturday night...and that's all I can say about that for now! ;)
 
Sunday was a nice, relaxing day, as we got to go to church, lunch with my family, and Ashley, Rebecca and I did some wonderful Sunday afternoon shopping.
Later, we had Bible study, and that's always so lovely :)
 
I finished the weekend off visiting Granny and making a late-night Cookout run with Carmen.
 
 
Now it's Monday, and I know we all need some motivation! I know I do, because this is gonna be a crazy week for me.
 
So here we go:

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 …
