I hope everyone has had a great week!  We are so excited it’s Friday around our house and more excited that we only have one week until SPRING BREAK!!!  Today I am sharing a few of my favorites from this week.


Last Sunday our pastor’s sermon was about “Succeeding in the Kingdom as Children”.  He spoke about how we should “Emulate Childlike Forgiveness”.  This really spoke to me because this is something I have really struggled with recently.   I realized…

This week I have had these verses on my heart…

1 Peter 4:8 (VOICE) Most of all, love each other steadily and unselfishly, because love makes up for many faults.

Eph 4:31-Eph 4:32 (NIV) Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

I love this meme because it is so true! When you are talking with your best friend it’s the best therapy.  Yesterday I was able to finally catch up with my bestie and it was just what I needed.  I have been feeling pretty down and depressed but just talking with her made me feel so much better.  We spent the entire hour just catching up so we didn’t have a chance to take a selfie, so I thought I would share this picture from our vacation last summer.

I wish we were sitting back in Cabo and enjoying a nice cocktail…

This week the girls and I have been doing a lot of shopping.  We kicked off the week buying some new bedding for their rooms.  Last night we went to the mall for some more retail therapy.

This weekend we finally kick off the spring soccer season!  We have two games tomorrow and the weather is suppose to be beautiful.  The girls both have awesome teams this season and I can’t wait to see how it goes.

Since the weather is finally starting to warm up I am getting Spring Fever!  I am ready for shorts and fun dresses.  Last year I saw a lot of girls wearing off the shoulder dresses and I have my eye on a few.  I just can’t decide which one to get; heck, I may just need all of these cute outfits…

This week I have been on a blogging roll.  I have worked really hard putting together a blogging calendar and I even have several posts in draft right now!  So if you missed a blog post this week, here is a quick look back at what I shared.

On Tuesday I shared Ten Random Facts about myself.  (On a side note I am starting a new series – Tuesday Top Ten.  So come back next week to check out my newest Top Ten edition.)

Thursday I shared “A Day in the Life”

So that’s it my friends. I sure hope everyone has a great Friday!!!

Live life. Experience love. Be real.

  1. Girl, on my old blog I shared the biggest offering of forgiveness I have ever given. It was one of the most difficult things to do but I had to before my life came apart. Ever since I granted that person (who isn’t who you would think) forgiveness and really allowed myself to move on my life just fell into place. Now I can offer it more readily because I know it is freeing! Ahhh transition now…besties make the world a better place. My BFF and I are getting back together in March distance and schedules keep us apart too much! I always feel so much better after a day with her! I spy Claire’s Boutique LOL our shopping day is next Friday. WOW an early Spring Break! Our school system doesn’t do SB until Easter. Enjoy your weekend! xo

  2. Forgiveness is SO hard for me. I can hold a grudge like it is my job and it is something that I have to work on all the time. Those verses spoke right to me. Also, one more week until spring break! I am so jealous! We have over a month. I have spring fever so bad and I love the off the shoulder dresses. They are so cute! I love that chambray one. Have a great weekend!

  3. I love that black off the shoulder dress and good luck redecorating the rooms. Forgiveness is a tough pill to swallow but I have found, remembering the amount of forgiveness others have laid on me and Christ has forgiven me for all my sins, it makes it easier. Jess at Just Jess
