As you are reading this I am either on the way to lay on the beach or laying on the beach! Yay!! I am super excited to get to spend a few hours relaxing on the beach with the Hubs and doing just that...RELAXING...before the wedding. We have not gone to the beach alone, without the Littles, in eight LONG years!
In preparing for my short vacation, I have not had a ton of time to think about a long post, so I am going to share what has been on my mind this week.
I had a chance to talk to my mom today for the first time in about a week. We don't talk all the time like some mothers and daughters do, but I always know she is there when I need her and she loves me unconditionally. It is always nice when we chat because there is always something new to talk about. I wish she lived a little closer so I could see her more often! I miss her a lot. With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, I miss her even more. I know the Hubs has plans for me here, so we will not be able to visit, but we will get a visit in real soon!!!
TWO: My Front Porch
We have been working really hard to get the yard looking great both in front and out back. I think we finally have it the way I want it. My front porch makes my heart smile! I was able to purchase some throw pillows from Target for my rockers. I absolutely love my ferns. They remind me that I am a Southern Girl! My new "Bee Happy" flag came from Lowes and my House Number Flower Bucket can be found here.
THREE:You Are What You Eat!
My life is super crazy right now and it seems that lately I have been eating just to stay alive. I don't know what I eat, why I eat or how much I am eating. This past week I have been very mindful of what I have been putting in my body. I found this little quote at the beginning of the week on Pinterest and I have been thinking about it everyday to help me remember!
FOUR: Cents of Style Chevron Scarves
I love scarves and I absolutely love these chevron scarves from Cents of Style. Today they are only $6.97 SHIPPED when you use the code MAYDEAL. This is the lowest they have ever been!! I love them so much I currently own four different colors. You can see the plum one here. I have also given them as gifts to family and friends! They are great quality for an AMAZING price. Visit Cents of Style through the banner in my sidebar and get a few of these for yourself and for gifts!
FIVE: TGIF...Beat The Stress
At the beginning of the week, Mary from Eat Drink and Be Mary posted her 20 Verses on Anxiety and Stress. Little did I know when I read that post that it would be the very thing to get me through the week. It was an extreamly stressful one, as it always is when I take a vacation day. Work was stressful, home was stressful, the Littles were crazy...it seemed everything was upside down. I went back and re-read her post and verses and was reminded to Let Go and Let God! Things seemed to look up from there. Check out her post, it is a great one!
Welcome to my sweet southern life! I'm a true southern girl, born and raised in the North Carolina mountains. I am the mother of one kind hearted little boy and one spunky little girl, two fur babies and a fish named Frosty. I am the wife of a wonderful man who has been the love of my life since I was eighteen. I have a passion for all things yummy, pretty, thrifty, clean, fun, crafty and organized. Pour yourself a glass of whatever may “tickle your fancy”, make yourself comfy and stick around for a while!
