Because it's chilly and I stayed up wayy too late watching this...
Today one of my friends and I are going to get our nails done. It sounds so girly, but I have a gift certificate so I am excited to use it. I'm considering it a Birthday present to myself :) I haven't had a set of nails put on since high school (I think), so it will be fun.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon with my best friend that finally came home after a long vacation. We went shopping and then let her little girl do our hair. I'm so blessed with such great friendships, the ones that feel like you are actually sisters and their family treats you like a family member. It makes my heart happy. While we were shopping at TJ Maxx I fell in love with a few things...
First was this recliner. It didn't come home with me (although I wish it would have). I just don't have any place to put it right now...
Next was this lunch bag. I've been cutting way back on going out for lunch. It's something that just drains my pocket book and also it can be harder to eat healthy- something that I am trying to do. We keep a pretty healthy stock of food at my house so putting it into this cute little bag will help me get ready in the morning.
The other two things I absolutely loved I didn't take pictures of (or buy- at least not yesterday). I LOVE it when TJ Maxx has Lucky jeans. They are some of my favorite jeans- mainly because they last forever and the sweet and low fit is complementing on me. I would have bought them but I had just gotten a brand new pair earlier that day so I had to pass. Along those I found a cute brown leather jacket. There is a good chance I will venture back over and get this jacket. I already have one brown bomber jacket but its a cropped one and makes it difficult to wear with some outfits. this one came down further and I fell in love. If it's there after our nail appointment today I will definately be getting it :)
And now to continue my 31 Days Project...
DAY 3. Who is someone you know who inspires beauty?
These questions are definately making me stop and think... I know a few people that inspire beauty for me, but when this person came to my mind I knew they were the one that I wanted to write about. My Mama. She is a beautiful person inside and out. She has a tender heart and is true to her convictions. If I "grow up" to be half the woman she is I will feel like I have done something right with my life. When I was growing up I gave that woman the hardest time. I was a stubborn hard-headed little girl that thought she knew best. Sometimes I still am. But she kept fighting for me. She kept loving me through every arguement and she kept praying for me. I think that is why her beauty is so apparent. She is a prayer warrior. And she is diligent about it. Now she is a woman that I can talk to about anything. She encourages me with love and makes sure I know how much she loves me. She has love pouring out of her. This woman is always willing to go the extra mile, whether it is for her family or for someone she sees is hurting. She has such a big heart. That is what inspires her beauty.
Lord make my heart sensitive like my mothers, and show me how to give love to everyone just as she does.
