Since school let out and Shel hasn’t been subbing anymore, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to thrift our lives away. We spent a Friday thrifting all around town and having lots of sisterly bonding time. If you haven’t caught on, I make a hashtag for each sister day. They’re stupid and real simple but hey. That’s a hashtag.

I am only realizing now that most of these pictures are of food.


I am okay with that.

By the way, ICEEs and popcorn at Target is the best snack ever. That should be a date. You and your boyfriend go to Target and get ICEEs and popcorn, walk around and talk and tell me that won’t be the best two hours you spend together.




Mini Malls at Night. BOO.

I wore this to church the night before my birthday. My sister was giving her testimony (nailed it, btw) and I wanted to spice it up with a little glam. The only places open in my “town” at night are Whataburger and the gas station. Our Dollar General was about to close so while my parents ran in for a few things we snapped these under the flattering fluorescent.

I can’t believe how big of a score this blouse was. I bought it several years ago in no doubt a Goodwill somewhere in this country. Rulez, right?

So what are you doing for Halloween? I’ve got no plans. We can’t wear costumes to work so I think I’m going as farts in a human costume.

Happy Halloween. BOO.


Coming ‘Round The Mountain

I want to thank all of you that have been praying for Jason’s family. If you don’t know, Jason’s dad suddenly passed away a little over a week ago. It has been a very tough time for all of us. I never realized how much has to happen so soon after someone is gone. It’s rough on the family, the spouse, and the kids. Please continue to pray for comfort for Jason’s mom, his brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, and Jason himself. Pray that we would see the big picture here and what God is doing in this situation. Pray for those surrounding the situation to know how to help and comfort and heal. We know who is in control and we continue to look to Him as we celebrate Jason’s dad’s life. We are thankful for his commitment to serve Jesus and share His love with the community. It was incredible to see the outpouring of love and support for the family the community gave.

It seems silly to post an outfit here after something so serious as death. But this blog reflects my life. It’s a journal for me and I need to record things… even silly things like a basic outfit and more life things like this.

I’m thankful for y’all that read this and pray. Please continue to do so!

Happy Monday 🙂

Animal Prints and Toe Caps


dress: JCPenney, heels: Target (thrifted-similar), necklace: H&M, watch: thrifted (similar), belt: JCrew (thrifted-similar), lipstick: Revlon Fuchsia Fusion

I wore this to a local winery last Friday night. If you’ve never been to Los Pinos Winery in Pittsburg, GO! Don’t be scared. It looks like you’ll never get there on those poorly paved, narrow roads. But suddenly it appears! Twinkle lights, live jazz, incredible food, sweet wine, grape vines, and a romantic atmosphere will make up for the weird journey there. I had the prosciutto grape pizza. OH. MY. GOSH. Get it. You’re probably thinking like, “Ew, grapes on a pizza?” But no. It was the perfect amount of sweet, cheesy, and creamy. Yumm!

A big note about these shoes. I HATE THEM. Well, I love to hate them. They are so cute but this is the first time I wore them and I couldn’t even keep them on for the entire time my sister and I were taking these pictures. (Thankfully I wore some different heels to the winery!) It feels like my feet are at a 90 degree angle. 🙁 Which is unfortunate because I bought them for $4! I guess I’ll just use them as decoration.

That belt though was a last minute thrift on our vacation. We were in a small thrift store in Florida and I just happened to pick up this nude belt. I didn’t realize it was leather JCrew until I put it in the cart! Woohoo! And this dress! It is the most comfortable dress I own! Plus it was basically free since I bought it with a gift card I found in my wallet. 🙂

In a little while I am taking Pepper to the park! I’m excited to get her out and smell and see new things. But if you see a girl being dragged by a golden dog, call for help.

I went to Ulta last weekend and picked up a couple of new skincare things and I’ve been trying them out! I’ll share the results with you next week! Look for it on Beauty Tuesday!

PS! Be sure to click the description links and “get the look!”

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice


blouse: thrifted, skirt: Target, shoes: thrifted

Have you ever seen that movie? Beetljuice? I haven’t. I only remember that Gina Davis was in it, right? And she was a ghost or something? Whatever, I hate scary movies and you can’t make me watch it. 🙂 By the way, the word ‘beetlejuice’ is the hardest word on the planet to type without thinking very hard. Try it I dare you!

I finally have my puppy back! I picked her up from being boarded yesterday and she was excited to see me. 🙂 She’s back to her old antics and antagonizing the poor cats. I’m on her side though, cats.

I have been in such a mood for ice cream the past few days. I think it’s the deprivation of all the salt air since we’ve come home and the fact that I had hardly any chocolate on vacation! COME ON. What kind of vacation is that?!

So if you want, send me some chocolate. 🙂

Happy Tuesday!!

Now You See Me


blouse: thrifted, shorts: Old Navy, sandals: F21, ring: DIY

I’m back! And oh I miss the beach already. My dad’s side of the family rented a three story house right on the beach in Florida for a week. Babies, cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles all together for a week. Only our family would be okay with that. 🙂 We are a very close family and last summer we started a new tradition called Family Share Time. Each family shares what has been going on in the last year, which I love because we wouldn’t know some of the stuff we hear had we not deliberately sat down and shared. We all complain about it but we secretly really love it. 😉 I am so incredibly blessed to be a part of such an uplifting and loving family. Sharing what has happened in my life these past six or seven months was difficult, but my family loved on me and encouraged me and told me they have been praying for me and will continue to pray. I couldn’t have asked for a better family. 🙂

The sand, the salty air, the cool bar right next door, the waves, the cool, relaxed vibe of Grayton… it’s all given me a new life goal. Buy a beach house. 🙂

Happy Monday!

Oh, PS! My cousin says hi. 🙂
