Colored Leggings

 The fun things about this outfit:
Sweater - Thrifted, Leggings - H&M, Necklace - Gift

Well I have to say, I'm in love with these leggings. 
I never thought I'd be a colored legging type of girl, but H&M proved me wrong.
And I was pumped to pair this slouchy thrifted sweater with them!

Anyone else out there a little scared of colored leggings?
Share a link with how you pulled them off!

Ephesians 3:14-19
 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength tocomprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Deviled Eggs? Yes Please!

 

Well Naomi is off gallivanting around the country (well the west coast anyway), 
so she asked me to share a recipe with you today! I usually share recipes on my blog 
My Wholesome Home, so it's fun to be posting for you over here today.

Deviled eggs are one of our ABSOLUTE favorite holiday snacks. 
I suppose they don't have to be limited to just holidays, but that's when 
we seem to make them the most. The best part is they're super easy.

Deviled Eggs
eggs
mayonnaise
mustard
paprika

1. Boil your eggs. (I cook mine for 8 1/2 minutes after the water starts boiling)

2. After peeling eggs, put in fridge for at least 1/2 hour to chill.

3. Slice eggs in half and gently pop out centers into bowl. Set whites aside on a plate.

4. Add approximately 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise per egg yolk, a squirt of mustard, and a dash of paprika to bowl.

5. Use and a hand mixer to combine.

6. Keep adding mayonnaise, mustard and paprika to taste. The mayonnaise is what helps make the yolks smooth, but be careful not to add to much so they don't become watery.

7. I learned this handy trick from my sister-in-law. Scoop yolk mixture into a Ziploc baggie and cut a corner. Use the bag to squeeze the yolks equally back into the whites.

8. If desired, add a dash more paprika on top.

9. Serve and enjoy!

Feel free to hop over and check out the rest of my tasty recipes! Happy Monday, and safe travels to Naomi as she heads home.

Note from Naomi: I switch up the amount of mustard and mayo. 
I'm pretty much a I-hate-mayo kind of girl, so I try to not add too much. 
Play with the portions and see what you like. 
***I add bacon sometimes too!

Holiday Travels

The fun things about this outfit:
Jeans - OldNavy, Shoes - Target, Shirt & Coat - Thrifted, Blue Bracelet - Thrifted

I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving yesterday!

I had the joy of being able to travel to see my lovely sister.
It was quite the different holiday for me. I'm used to helping my mom in the kitchen,
as more people pour in the door and the living rooms fill up, and children run back
and forth up and down the hallway. But this year I made one dish, prepped one more, 
and sat back and relaxed. It was pretty sweet! 

What did you do yesterday?

Philippians 2:3-5
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus

Thankful Thursday: Gifts

The fun things about this outfit:
Sweater - Free, Jeans - Buckle, Shoes - Target, Bracelet - Thrfited, Necklace - HomeMade

This necklace started from an old chain found in my mom's garage and a short skirt 
that makes a tall girl like me look like I'm showing a little too much badonkadonk.

Here's how I created it:
1. Pick some materials.
2. Cut strips of fabric. (try to choose something that doesn't fray) 
3. Get your piles of fabrics set out and ready to go.
4. Tie lots of knots!
5. Wear that thing like a boss!

All this brings me to what I'm thankful for...
I'll be joining my sister Rachel for her monthly theme of Thankful Thursdays
So appropriately kicking off today on Thanksgiving!

I'm so incredibly thankful for having the ability to cut strips of fabric. And that I'm able to tie a knot. 
I love that I have a mind that can be creative when I see an old skirt and a bulky chain. 
I'm just so incredibly grateful that God has given me the gift of craftiness... I know it's not on
the list of spiritual gifts, but I'm claiming it as God given anyways! 

James 1:17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the
Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

Wordless Wednesday: Knotted Sweater

The fun things about this outfit:
Sweater - Thrifted, Bracelets - Mostly Thrifted, Jeans - OldNavy, Shoes - Target

Romans 5:6-8
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—
though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—
but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Eternally Thankful

The fun things about this outfit:
Leggings - Kohls, Boots - Target, Coat - Ross, Sweater - Thrifted, Scarf - HandMeDown from Grandma!!!

It's the week of Thanksgiving!

Some people dread the holiday season, some people love it to pieces.
I can't really say that I'm either end of the spectrum.
But I will say this! I'm Thankful! And for oh-so-many things!

First and foremost for being part of an eternal inheritance. 
I'm incredibly grateful for Christ's love for me. 

Yesterday the sermon at church was on this psalm and I had to share it!

Pslam 100
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
