SMILE! It’s Monday! LOL! I know, Monday’s can be hard but I am feeling like I want to take this week by force and sort of own it! I have been recently challenged with some things that I need to be working on creatively and it is pushing me out of my comfort zone like never before.  I love that quote that people often say, “Do scary things!”  If it is scary, chances are you will need to be in prayer and relying on God.  One of my favorite scriptures is fitting for this season of my life: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9.  Just when things get comfy a challenge comes my way! It’s not a bad thing… its a growth thing! Gotta learn to embrace change, growth, stretching and boldly walking into your calling! Ok, rant overrrr! LOL

I know, it’s crazy! I wear dresses all the time! Well, at least for “dress up” and blog fun, but I also wear them often to work! I am a girly girl and dresses are so easy and make me feel like I automatically look beautiful!! Any-whoo, because I love dresses so  much, I never want to pay an arm and a leg for it!! This one is less than 21.00… CRAZY right!?!?! YEP, steal!!  What do you like to wear the most!?!? As always, thank you for stopping by the blog and have the most amazing week!


Much love,

    STUNNING BABE! I love the wrap-style detail on your dress and that color looks amazing on you. Also, I totally feel you about being pushed out of your comfort zone, it’s hard, but you’ll grow and that’s the silver lining!

    Can I take your number? When Alex Mack starts to come to terms with her new powers, she’s got to confide in someone. Darris Love plays Ray Alvarado, her neighbor, best friend and practically brother, who helps Alex cope with life post-chemical spill.
