Love ya!

Since today was my last day working at Macy's, I thought I'd commemorate it by wearing as much color as possible. After I came home from work I put on my brightest clothing! I wish I could have gotten some outdoor shots today because the weather was actually nice, but there were these creepy guys in the apartment above us who kept calling me Mami and not even this blog is worth that level of creepy.

Tomorrow my Sean is coming home after another week of working in Delaware! Then on Saturday we are leaving for camping in Colorado! I'm super excited. I don't travel very many places so this will be so much fun! Sean and I's first anniversary is on Sunday so we will probably celebrate it tomorrow before we go camping. So, I probably won't post again for another week or so unless I find time tomorrow :) Busy, busy summer!

I'm definitely going to miss a lot of the people I worked with at Macy's, but all in all I'm so excited to be finished working there. It's a great place, but I just don't enjoy working retail, in general. These past couple of months working in women's clothing was more fun because I got to help people shop, but it was also a bigger temptation than I need! Now I have just a few more weeks before I start my residency and get things in order for school! SCARY!!

Psalm 119:30
I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws.

Love you all! God Bless :)

Hot Metal

I feel like I'm harping here, but here's a little taste of how hot it is outside here: I can't wear sunglasses because they'll burn my face, and just wearing these earrings to the grocery store became painful. After 3 minutes in the car the metal in the earrings became hot and started to burn my neck! Now that is just wrong....At least this dress is about the coolest thing I can decently wear out in public. I hate to say it, but I'm missing the winter right now!

Even the department I work in is unusually hot. Everywhere else in the store is nice and cool, but the air conditioning broke in my department-just my luck! I was moving so slowly today and my back was drenched :P I was so glad to come home to air conditioning!

But, I should really stop complaining ;)
Philippians 2:14-16
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.

God Bless!

Meant to Be

I'm naughty. I don't need any more clothing. But I have been eying this top ever since it came into Macy's and was like 80 dollars. It's so hard working in the women's clothing department! I get to see when everything is on sale and have to put back so many cute items from the dressing room every day. But this top and I were meant to be.

We had a bunch of these tops but I couldn't ever find any in my size, so I figured I didn't need to have it. But a few days ago one in my size just magically appeared up on the counter and I was supposed to 'put it away' but instead I snapped it up! It had been marked down to 23 dollars for the longest time, but when I scanned it it came up as like 5 dollars or something ridiculous like that. I couldn't pass it up! I wore it to hang out with friends last night and it is the most comfortable top I think I've ever owned. I think it's safe to say I will be getting a ton of use out of I know it was a great buy! Clothes in my size just have a way of finding me out and tempting me...blaaahh

Again, I feel I must share the gravity of the heat wave we are going through with you all. Look at all of this magical fogginess! I actually like the effect quite a lot :)

Oh, and here's what I was doing today :)Nephews are magical :D I got to hang out with all of my family all day long-It was sweltering, but so much fun!

Galatians 6:10
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

God Bless all :)

Heat Wave

You guys, it has been so hot out these past couple of days that THIS is what happens when we try to go outside to take pictures. The lens completely fogs up!:

I'm telling you it is steamy out! Although it does add a nice 'soft focus' effect on my pictures! We got a bunch like this before the camera finally de-fogged!

Sean and I had another mini-date night last night! We went to the cheap theaters to see Kung Fu Panda 2. It was really good! I loved the first one, and I was pretty impressed with this one also. After that we checked out this little arcade in the little strip mall called "Electric Rainbow" It was pretty ghetto and awesome! We then went to the park and played around for a bit before deciding that it was too hot and so of course the only logical thing to do was go get some frozen yogurt! This new place opened up in town (much too close to us I might add...) called "Cherry Berry" It is basically a self-serve yogurt bar where you put in your own frozen yogurt and then put on all of your toppings. They then weigh your bowl and charge you 39 cents an ounce! It was awesome, but you definitely have to be careful how much you put in your bowl! The weight can add up super fast. I think next time we go we will make sure to limit ourselves...but all of the awesomeness just overwhelmed us at first! haha I will definitely be going back to that magical place....Even better than Coldstone!

Colossians 2:9-10
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.

God bless all-and try not to melt out there!

Sometimes A Girl Just Loves Her Butterflies...

The weather outside is so bipolar. The only reason I'm sure it's summer right now is because humidity is about 90 percent. Otherwise it's dark and dreary and just not nice at all! I guess I shouldn't complain. At least it isn't wintertime! But these days definitely make for some cruddy pictures.

I've had this top for a very long time. I used to wear it a lot (say...freshman year of high school) but recently I haven't found many ways to wear it. It's a bit shorter so I decided that tucking it into a skirt would be the perfect option! This skirt is one of the favorites in my wardrobe. I got it from my grandmother last summer and have since worn it countless times. It is the perfect shape, fit, and color for so many pairings! Aaaand it's super comfy. Can't beat that!

I helped a woman at Macy's today, who turned out to be my favorite customer, I'm pretty sure. All I did was help her pick out a black cardigan to go with a dress for a reunion she's having. We talked about some things and I complimented her (for she was very beautiful). She was just astounded at the fact that I took so much time to help her and by the end of the sale she paid for her items and just gushed to me how wonderful I had been and how she never gets treated this well at Younkers (bahaha!). She told me that I had really made her day and made her feel so special. She went so far as to seek out a manager to compliment them on the store and how helpful I'd been! It's days like this that make me think working there hasn't been so bad. I've complained a whole lot and definitely not enjoyed myself most days, but it's nice to know that I have helped at least a few people at my time there. In one week I will be finished with retail and back to school and teaching, but I will definitely miss the people at Macy's :)

He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.

Have a great evening, Lovelies :)

Back In Action

I honestly didn't feel like blogging today. I have to work tonight, the weather is rainy, I've spent the day doing laundry, and once I get out of the groove for a while it's hard for me to get back into it!

I've only had this blouse for a couple of weeks and it's already become a staple in my wardrobe. I love the color and collar and It can be fun or professional! These pants are kind of my favorite. I thrifted them for something ridiculous like a dollar and they're blue and have polka dots. If I had a perfect pair of pants in my mind it would be these! I'm not quite convinced that they're the right length, but I can always hem them if I decide to.

Jeremiah 1:4-5
The word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

I hope you're all having a fabulous week!

Quick Pics

I will have much more to share with all of you lovelies tomorrow. Tonight I am exhausted from sun and wonderful, glorious nephews with whom I got to play out in the pool for an entire afternoon :) I got to talk with my sister and take some fun pictures and it was wonderful!

These pictures were taken Friday night out at my grandparent's farm. I decided not to crop them or change them in any way because I love the scenery! We went into town (Pollock) for a 'Dairy Days' outdoor meal so I put on a comfy dress and made sure my hair was up because it was extremely windy out! We talked with old relatives and ate ice cream under a tent in the middle of the street :) So fun!

Jeremiah 32:17
Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.

More tomorrow! God Bless :)

One Last Thing...

Sean and I will be leaving today to go visit our families. Please pray for Sean's family as he lost an uncle this week who was very much loved. We were going to go straight to my grandparents' house, but now we are going to drive to Dickinson, ND tonight where the funeral is being held and spend Thursday with Sean's family. We will make it to my grandparents' hopefully Friday morning.

I will be back posting Monday as I will have no internet with which to give any updates! But check out this blog: Justice Pirate. She featured me as a Modest Fashion Feature on her blog! I really enjoy reading this wonderful gal's blog and I suggest you all check her out!

Have a good week and God Bless,

Happy Fourth of July!

I had to work for most of the day today :P It was dead for part of the day and then super busy for the other part. I spent my entire shift making sure that every pair of jeans in the store had a tag on it, as we are going to be starting inventory soon (luckily I will be gone before then!) It was riveting, let me tell you. I was so ready to come home and take my shoes off and just relax!

After I got home from work Sean and I went and bought me a new laptop! I desperately need one as the one I am using has a broken battery, and I need a computer for when I start school in the fall. We got a Lenovo. I will post pics later on after Sean is done configuring it! I can't wait to use it-it has much better specs than the one I am using now and much more hard drive space!

Psalm 33:12
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.

Hope you are all enjoying your holiday :) Praise God for this wonderful country we live in!
