Friend Time and a Little Sunday Inspiration

Ashley.. one of my besties was in town this weekend briefly so I got to spend the afternoon with her! We took advantage of the most perfect summer day and did a little photo shoot. 

Isn't she so LOVELY?? She is gorgeous not only on the outside but even more on the inside. I feel so grateful to have her as a friend. She is turning the BIG 26 this week. Its crazy how time flies...

This lovely place never gets old to me. I'm glad we got to relax a little and enjoy the freshly cleaned air from the rain yesterday.

I wish my friends lived closer but I love the time I do get to spend with them..
Love ya Ash! Happy Birthday!!

Here is a little Sunday inspiration:

Today's inspiration comes from the Bible... 

Proverbs 3:15

"She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her."

Remember that you are more precious than the most beautiful and rare rubies or diamonds out there. There is nothing compared to your worth. It's hard in a world that says that beauty is being tall, skinny, perfect in every way, successful, rich...It's not any of that. You are beautiful for everything you are! Don't ever think otherwise....

I hope you all have a wonderful week. Happy Sunday!



Modest Fashionista//Polka dots

This is an oldie but a goodie from THIS POST  in the spring...

We are in the last couple weeks at the Modest Fashionista contest. This week is Polka dots and I thought this outfit was so fun to bring back and share. Go vote HERE and if you haven't voted for the other weeks all of them are still open!


It's OK

I met Katie, the creater of It's OK Apparel, (and my cute shirt...) on instagram...hehe.  We both have a love of thrifting, which is how we came into contact! She has been creating this business over the past few months and I was so excited to see her finally get in her first projects.  Let me just tell you. I was very pleased with my tee. Its soft, very comfortable, long, and an amazing quality.  It's OK Apparel has shirts for you as well as your hubby and littles! Go check out what she has HERE. Or do as I did and you can easily order on her instagram @mrspumpkineater.

My nephew Dane wanted in on the picture action... He was quite confused intrigued by what I was doing...

 This is his "Paul Blart" shirt.
 He LOVES the movie Paul Blart: Mall Cop and wears his American flag "badge" proud.



Oh What a Beautiful Morning

Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,
I've got a wonderful feeling,
Everything's going my way.

We decided to get up earlier today and head out on the lake... Less people, less wind, and a more glassy water surface. It was a wonderful idea and a wonderful morning.

All the sounds of the earth are like music,
The breeze is so busy it don't miss a tree,
And an ol' Weepin' Willer is laughin' at me.



Lake Today

 My dad recently bought a new boat so we decided to take it out this afternoon. I don't know if there is anything better than a day at the lake...

My swimsuit is C/O Beverly Swimwear.This one is the Retro Rouche.

I seriously felt like today was perfect. There is nothing I like more than to be outside in the beautiful summer sun, on the lake, with my family. Perfect....
