So every year for my birthday since I have been married, I always like to pick up a birthday present for my kitchen as a fun reminder that the biggest present is being able to be a wife and mommy. These are some of my favorite kitchen items to dress up my kitchen for this special occasion.
This is my birthday jam. This song will be playing on repeat until it is no longer my birthday. I am one that loves her birthday and her age, no shame! #birthdaydiva
Yesterday I went to Anthropologie and found so many good finds that I wanted to share with all of you. I also want to mention that there is free shipping on orders $150 or above. I hate paying for shipping, so if you are like me use code FS150
Morgan & I had so much fun using the app called GOPRIV! It is literally beauty on wheels. Whenever we needed to have our hair done we would PRIVIT! It’s an app full of beauty services. You choose your service that you wish to have done, ie hair, makeup, nails, massage, even a personal trainer. You then enter in your location, and a list of available techs will show their availability.
Today’s look is called the “rockabilly”. It is always fun to go outside the box when someone else with skills is in charge.
Today is September 11th. One of the most impactful days in my life. I was just in 7th grade when this tradgedy happened. I had been getting ready for at least an hour in my bedroom picking out the perfect outfit for one of my favorite classes. I had typing and I had the biggest crush on a 9th grade boy who was in my class. Today was going to be great I also had my birthday party invitations ready to go in my backpack. My birthday is the 15th.
I hopped on the bus and my driver had the news on instead of the usual pop station. I had no idea that what I was hearing was the WORST news that has ever been reported.
In school we watched what was happening in New York and to our country. I couldn’t believe it. The day was somber, and needless to say my birthday invitations were the least of my concern. I remember being scared. I couldn’t stop watching the T.V. I prayed and pleaded with God that these families who lost loved ones would be comforted and that people would be found and lives saved. I watched every candlelight ceremony and every address our President made. I remember in October during our churches televised General Conference there was a national interruption I watched President Bush make an announcement.
In all my disbelief I have only come up with one thing. That HATE is the destroyer of LIFE. My husband describes hate the best, he says Hate is like drinking a poison and expecting the other person to die. If you carry hate in your heart you are killing yourself, you are literally drinking poison. The tragedy of 9-11 happened due to HATE.
I live by a motto my dad lives by. My dad told me whenever I first started school to remember that everyone is having a hard day, so be that person that makes a difference.
So that’s how I live my life. That’s how I try to conduct my blog. I want my readers to come here and feel it is a safe place. A place where they want to be.
I want to build -not tear down.
I have developed quite thick skin through this whole blogging experience, and have put up some walls to protect myself. But I plead to those who do read my blog to try it out even if it is just for a day instead of critiquing try complimenting, instead of being right, see someone else’s point of view. Because in the long run life isn’t about winning, it’s to be enjoyed.
