I am so excited! Want to know why? well besides that they are calling for above zero temperatures next week and that my sister (and brother in law) are coming to visit this weekend –  I am going on a date with my super hot husband tomorrow! We got ourselves a babysitter (and she is a fabulous one at that and my babies love her). We made some reservations at a fancy restaurant that we love and we are going out! We also invited along a few of our closest friends and we are going to have a little post birthday (for me) pre birthday (for my hubby) party celebrating us both turing the big 30! You all know by now I love to get dressed up so I’ve been planning my outfit for months now. (yes I said months)  I actually bought 3 different outfits because I wasn’t sure exactly which one I was going to wear but I feel like that is just a girl thing to do. Hubby says  “tell me what you want me to wear and I’ll wear it”! Man I wish it was that easy for me. I always have a vision in my head of what I want it to look like – but trying it on and seeing it on myself is a whole other ball game! I will be sure to take (hopefully lots) pictures and do a recap on Monday! (For those of you that actually care to see) So just because I am a visual person here is a date night look for him and her. The best part these looks are both under $100!! (minus the watch but no mens outfit is complete without a watch)

I hope you all have a super fabulous Friday! Finish the week well and enjoy every minute of your weekend! I know I will make the best of mine!

  • Growing up as a white girl in an all white family I know what privilege is. I knew racism still existed but sadly I never allowed it to really impact me or become educated on it - I never chose to speak out on it even though I thought it was wrong. Than I adopted 3 sweet mixed babies and through my involvement with foster care I quickly realized I can’t sit silently I need to do more. Not only for my babies but for every single person of color. It breaks my heart, the fact that black people are treated much less thought of less than white. The labels and stereotypes I hear people talk about make me sick to my stomach. To think my babies birth parents could be any less valueable, important and deserve less love than someone with white skin - it just wrong! Yes the black deserve to be celebrated and honoured for their cultural differences and they are just as equally important, valuable, worthy of love as any white person! To all those of the black community I am sorry! I really have no other words than I’m sorry and I promise to do better and to raise my kids to know that no matter someone’s skin color we all deserve to be loved and shown kindness always! #georgefloyd #blacklivesmatter
  • Life has felt heavy these past couple weeks - so much pain, brokenness, death, people hurting and for this emotional girl who feels all the things it’s been too much so I’ve been just leaning into Jesus and soaking up all the love and snuggles with my fam jam! I’m so thankful that Jesus feels all the feels right with us and that we have a hope that is far greater than the pain of this world! *don’t be jealous of my paw patrol ice pack that my daughter let me borrow*

  • As someone who suffers in pain daily thanks to an auto immune disease I am no stranger to pain- from physical pain to the emotional pain of infertility and failed adoption,  loss of loved ones and broken relationships pain has always been apart of my life and I’m sure it has been for you too. We live in a society that associates pain as a negative thing as something we should fear but I’ve been trying to shift my perspective lately and thinking about the fact that pain is a privilege. Pain can be used for good in our lives if we allow it to be. What happens when we view pain as a privilege? I believe if we allow ourselves to profit from the pain we will no longer suffer in waste but we will develop self growth and discover the purpose to our pain. #justmytwocents #thursdaythoughts
  • A lot of things have changed since last Easter but the reason we celebrate hasn’t!  I’m so thankful that Jesus turns #gravesintogardens #heisrisen
  • Gratitude is a powerful thing... I was thinking of those who lived through the holocaust today and I was instantly so thankful that we get to chose to stay home and be safe that we can still go in our car for drives for a change of scenery that even though we are living in quarantine away from people we are not in hiding we aren’t scared for our lives and we are healthy!! #covid19 #gratitudeattitude
