Black, White, And Red All Over

It's a windy, dark day today-I've been having a date with my laundry all day :P
I've also spent the time folding laundry watching the figure skating championships! Sean and I finally borrowed an antenna for our tv so we get a few channels now, and I can watch skating! Can you believe I'm 22 years old and I've never gotten to go ice skating? What is up with that? I've always loved to watch it, I was glued to the Olympics when I was little-and still am! It's funny that I'm not much of a sports fan, but when the Olympics is on I have to watch. I guess I like individual sports better than sports with multiple players.

I have to go into work tonight, and for the next two days as well-We have another sale going on so it's going to be crazy in the store! But being busy is much better than being bored while at work! I cannot wear the jacket while working of course, but the rest is black, so it is work appropriate :)

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Psalm 150:6
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.

Fashion Rulebreaker

You guys, I broke one of my very own fashion rules. I'm not proud of it, but I'm totally wearing leggings as pants right now. I'm telling myself it's ok because I'm only lounging around the house after work-I'm not planning on going anywhere public! I wore my old pair of leggings into the ground these past few months of work, so when I saw this pair on the clearance rack at Macy's for practically nothing, I knew I had to buy them! I wear leggings to work a lot under my dresses and skirts. The clearance price was three dollars, and then I got a bunch of discounts, so they literally hardly cost me anything-can you say awesome?! They are the best pair of leggings I have ever worn. They aren't see through at all and are this really nice cotton that didn't fall down on me during the day. You won't see me wearing these in public without a longer dress anytime soon, but for staying in and doing things around the house, they're kind of perfect :)

Are you guys having amazing weather where you are? It's glorious outside. The temperature is perfect (60s!) and it's just gorgeous.
Hope you all have a lovely day!
God Bless,

Something to reflect on:
Philippians 2:5-8
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!

A Weekend Recap!

Whew! I'm finally posting outfit photos from this past Easter weekend! It only took me a few days...I have an outfit from Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I've been working and trying to get all of the Easter pictures of my nephews edited and on CD's for my family. It's taking longer than expected, but that's because I filled an 8gig card with video and pics!

Here are the pictures from last Friday when I went to visit with Sean's family for Easter. It was the coziest, most wonderful outfit to travel in. I even changed back into it for the drive home Sunday night!

This outfit for Saturday was planned so that I would look like an Easter egg while decorating eggs!! haha, I love this cardigan. I found the glasses a long time ago at the flea market where I go to college I had Sean take the lenses out for me and now I can wear them! I'm kind of in love...they are fabulous! My mama took these pictures! She is amazing :D The lighting outside was terrible because of the weather, but I still love the pictures! Thanks Mama! :D:D

On Sunday the whole family was there! We went to church and then had Easter dinner while playing with the nephews-my favorite part! My sisters and I played piano and brought out the violin and then we took family photos! These are vintage pieces that my eldest sister got a long time ago. She doesn't wear them anymore, so when I saw how wonderful the colors and textures looked together, I had to layer this dress and shrug-love it!

Lips-Revlon in 'Wine Not Matte'

I will have a normal post for you tomorrow-I promise! Work is just getting to be a headache-literally. I started a 20 hour position in the petites section of the store, and every time I work there I come home with a migraine! The lady I work with says the same thing. It must be the lighting in that part of the store, but I hope I can survive the summer over there! I only work until 1:15 pm tomorrow, so I will have some time to blog after work :)
Love you all!

1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

He is Risen!

What a glorious weekend! The sun peeked out on Sunday and it was such a beautiful way to remember the meaning of why we celebrate Easter! Christ died for us and rose again so that we can live and spend eternity in Heaven with Him someday. Isn't that great?
What a wonderful holiday to be able to spend with family- coloring eggs, playing outside with the nephews, taking pictures-ahhh bliss! Here are some photos from the weekend. On Saturday we colored some eggs! It has been years since I've colored some eggs on Easter and it was so much fun! On Sunday we took family pictures and played outside blowing bubbles and riding bikes and swinging-so much fun!

Here are just some random photos of me and the family! I will be posting outfits from the weekend throughout the week :)
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
God Bless,

1 Corinthians 15:3-4
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures

Finally-The Sun!

Not much for tonight-it's been a long day! I already had a full day of work scheduled and got asked to stay even longer :P
Since it was such a tiring day and I'm sick of wearing black, I had to brighten my mood with some color! Then hubby and I went to walmart, bought a bunch of random stuff (all needed of course) and spent too much money!

Have a lovely night all!
