Currently craving

Girls night out look

Guess what day it is guys? HUMP DAY. We are half way through the week. The weather has been amazing here in Houston the last few days, after having what felt like a month long of gloomy days. I love being able to let the boys run free in the backyard when the weather is this gorgeous. This past Saturday I had a girl’s night out for my dear friend’s birthday. We went to Prohibition Super Club and Bar. It was so much fun, the food was good, the show was good, and all with good company. The night couldn't have gone better UNTIL my husband calls me at 11:30 saying he ran out of gas. So I hurry out of there to help him out, he fills up the car and then ... wait for it.... The battery died. Yup that's right.

By this time it's almost 1:00 a.m. and the roadside assistance was going to be there any minute. Fast forward us waiting and now its almost 2:00 a.m. and we are still waiting for roadside assistance. A cop pulls up behind us and tells us we need to leave the highway because it’s obviously dangerous and also 2:00 a.m. ... Long story short, we finally made it home and it was 3:00 a.m. and I had to work the next morning at 8:30 a.m. (brought me back to those sleepless newborn nights). Topping all this off we were having problems with our toilet. Poor Jordan and my dad were working on the car and toilette all day Sunday… When it rain it pours!

With all this being said I want to encourage you with something, life may have its bumps in the road and sometimes you feel like strangling your significant other because of something they may have done… (like me). But that wouldn’t have made our situation any better. Choose to be joyful in whatever circumstance you may be in. I know that’s harder said than done, but trust me you'll feel a whole lot better. I choose to be grateful that even though we were stuck in the highway at 2:00 a.m. I was grateful that my hubby was safe and alive; that my kids were sleeping safe and sound in their beds and that the little mess we found ourselves in could have always been worse. After making a decision and choosing to be joyful, I didn't have to go back and apologize to Jordan for anything I shouldn't have said and we weren't down each other’s throat, which in turn made the whole thing easier. In a few months from now well just laugh and not have any scars of being mad at each other and the scars of hurtful words.

Have a great rest of the week loves, choose joy and spread to those around you!

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. - James 1: 2-3

Crazy&Co. Spotlight

It's Friday!! Today I wanted to spotlight on Crazy and Co boutique. All these unique and absolutely gorgeous pieces above plus many more can be found on their website here. So what makes them different you ask? Most of their pieces in the boutique are one-of-a-kind that have been found in international flea markets, independent designers, and local exhibitions. How cool is that? Best part is everything is at a great price point so you’re not breaking the bank and that is a win, win if you ask me! Check out their new handbag collection which is newly launched, my personal favorites are the Diego and Carlos wallet. So tell me, which pieces are you loving and wanting to get your hands on? 

Have a great weekend my loves! I can't wait for the beautiful weather this weekend, gloomy days like today make me want to do nothing.

Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid ...You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate. -Luke 6:35-36

OTK boots

Let’s talk OTK (over the knee) boots. They’re everywhere, and rightfully so! I love this look, it’s so easy to dress it up or down! I love the idea of throwing on a big blanket scarf, a comfy sweater, some leggings and your OTK boots! I linked up a few of my favorite OTK boots for y'all, unfortunately some of the sizes are limited - but don't panic its only on a few of the styles. Also a girl should be able to dream, wouldn't you agree? I linked up my absolutely favorite which is the Valentino bow OTK boots, isn't it just darling? Now for those who are asking yourself how do I style this (as I did)?! I added a little inspiration on a few women who nailed the look! For more looks you can always hop on Pinterest just like I did. Let me know what you think and which one is your favorite. Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend loves!

Be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. - 1 Timothy 4:12

Piperlime Best Sale Alert!!

Hello loves! Yes, I am alive and thankfully feeling better. The last two weeks have been horrible here at home, we have all been sick and I felt like it lingered forever. Don't you just love how when one person gets sick it spreads through the house like wildfire? This weather doesn't help much either. On top of everyone being sick, Jordan's identity was stolen. Thankfully they have caught the guys, but this past Friday we were on the phone all day calling banks and trying to clear things up. I was on the phone with Capital One for 40 minutes (insert angry face here)! Moving on...

By now you probably know that Piperlime is one of my favorite stores and they are having a HUGE sale going on right now! You get to take 60% off all sale items with code: BESTSALE. Sale ends tomorrow and stuff is going FAST. I have rounded up a few of my favorite tops and bottoms, and you can get each piece under $100, although most of them are under $50!! I ended up getting the Motto sweater jacket and the Lucy pencil skirt with the matching top - which is no longer available (womp, womp). It's so hard to not buy all of these pieces. Which ones do you love most? I'd love to hear your feedback! Happy shopping!!

You are the light of the world- like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. - Matthew 5:14

2014 Flashback

Hello 2015! 2014 has been great, God has blessed us with more then we could ever think or imagine. Biggest blessing is of course the birth of our little sweet Colin. This past year a lot has happen, both boys took their first trip, first swimming lessons, first time to a baseball game and so much more! I'm excited for 2015 and for what God has in store. Im claiming that this year will be our best year yet! 

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. - Isaiah 43:19
