Easter 2015

Easter 2015 was fabulous.
On Saturday night, we did our traditional egg dyeing at Granny's house. We dye eggs to go in ours and our cousins' baskets every year loll. I love dyeing eggs. I love anything crafty so y'all already know.

Easter Sunday called for lots of pictures.
Me, Mama, and Flash.
Sibling picture.
Jonathan might as well be a brother to us :)
Me and Michael were at the hospital the day he was born.
Me and JoJo.
Pic with the Easter Bunny!
(LOL sorry Cam)
Connor is clearly thrilled to be held by Ashley.
Speaking of Easter bunnies...
I realllly wish I could get emojis on here.
(insert laughing til crying emojis on all of these pictures!)
It took a few attempts to get a good pic with Emery and her ears and eggs and basket.
Sofiya saw us struggling and came to help.
Granny and Daddy
Oh yes I did.
(I got these earrings when I was little and didn't even have pierced ears and then I lost them once I had them pierced, so I never wore them. I found them the other day and decided I should take advantage of a fresh start with them.)

The birthday boy!
Emery's basket :)

Lunch and a one-year-old birthday party at Granny's, dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings with my family and Flash's, Starbucks, lots of pictures, and reflecting on the love of our Savior who died for us all and rose from the dead, and is preparing a place for us in Heaven. Sounds good to me!
Hoppy Easter!

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…
