Life Lesson & Sail Boats

The fun things about this outfit:
1. Dress - Thrifted
2. Belt - Thrifted
3. Shoes - Thrifted
4. Necklace - Home Made

Ok I bought this dress at a thrift store and fell in love. The search for prints seems to 
never be in my favor, so I couldn't resist picking it up! It was over sized a bit, and came 
to a weird stop in the middle of my shin...but lo' I cut that thing off and hemmed it up 
and now she's a beaut'
Or a boat? 
Does that rhymes! 
Am I more excited than a 24 yr old should be about rhyming?
(oh you sly nerdy sense of humor. get back where you came from)

Please. Let's move on.

Lesson of the day:
Never wait to eat until 2 in the afternoon.

Yesterday I found myself needing to leave for church before I ate breakfast. 
I admit it was a good reason: I was trying to get a post done for this her' blog, 
but still....HUN....grrrrrr....eeeeeeee (that was my belly aching). And the snacks
at church are typically sugar loaded, which isn't all bad, but I'm trying to eat 
healthier so sugar probably shouldn't be the first thing in my system to start the day.
So with eight and undisclosed high number of cups of coffee, 
I trudged on with my morning.

You know that feeling when you're hungry for so long without 
doing anything about it that you forget that you're hungry?


(I want it to be noted that at this point of writing this post...I grabbed a snack)

(and lost my train of thought)

(so I guess I'm done and will close with a verse)

Matthew 6:31-33
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

    1. Thanks! I feel pretty lucky finding this dress. I always have a search on for great prints on a dress.

  4. that dress is adorable! I thought for sure it was j.crew. what a great find (yet again)

  5. I just want you to know that I LOVE the dress!! ... And can TOTALLY relate to your "sly nerdy sense of humor," and to NOT being familiar with that feeling when you're hungry for so long without doing anything about it that you forget that you're hungry. HaHaHa!!! And now I, too, need a snack break ...
