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.

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.

Dots & Stripes!

 The fun things about this outfit:
Boots & Bracelet & Shirt - Thrifted, Necklace - from Basque Country, Jeans - Old Navy

Sometimes I pick up things in the thrift store that I can't decide if I like it or if I hate it.
This shirt is totally one of those items.

I walked around for at least 30 minutes with this "grandma" shirt in my arm.
Is it hideous?
Is it brilliant?

I took the plunge and walked up to the register.
{Sometimes I get weird looks form the clerks when the see what I'm buying. 
Doesn't phase me!}

Then it sat. And sat. And sat in my closet. 
What in the what do I where this shirt with. 

And about 6 months later this is what I came up with. 
Stripes? Dots? So many questions... 

Colosians 3:1-4
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is,seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Lost in Translation

The fun things about this outfit:
Boots - Target, Leggings & Shirt - H&M, Sweater - Thrifted, Necklace - purchased in Basque Country

So this is an outfit I wore during my trip in Basque Country.
It was a chili night so I tossed a scarf on, but I promise that this photo has this outfit!
These are some of my lovely new friends that I will never forget! 
I can't wait to see them all again in the future!

One of the funniest things about this trip was eating out.
The time it took for these girls to translate a menu for me was comical. 
But they were so patient with me and eventually I did order food!

And it was delicious!

Anyone else ever been on a trip and just had to stop 
and laugh at the language barrier?

1Timothy 4:7-8
Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
