Today, we are going back to the basics. Getting down to the nitty gritty of it all, if you will. The reason I started this blog was to keep a scrapbook of sorts of all of the things, people and events that God has blessed and continues to bless me with in this journey of life. And today, I am so blessed. The good news from every which-a-way just has a smile plastered on my face. So let's begin, shall we?
First and foremost, I hit the two year mark on this here blog! All together now "YYYAAAYYY!!" What?? I can't believe it has been that long. It seems like just yesterday, I was stalking Simple Little Joys just wishing I had the nerve to blog myself. What a great two years it has been of y'all so graciously reading my nonsense. Y'all are crazy!
Secondly, I hit 200 followers on here yesterday! What!! 200 people want to read what I have to say? That is huge for me. You just hit 200 followers and you've been blogging for 2 years, you say? Yep, that is correct. And something I am proud of. I did not host 4,000 give-away's just to reach 1,000 followers in 3 months. I just write. And share my fashion loves. And my home decor loves. And keep you up to date on my life and all the lovely things going on down here in good ole Mississippi. And crazily enough, y'all actually want to read about that. It just makes my day.. So thank you, thank you, thank you for reading.
Next up, God has blessed me with a great new job as a Stella and Dot Stylist. You may say, big deal? But for me this is huge. I am no salesman and it's definitely wayyyy out of my personality to try something challenging like this. But I LOVE IT and to my delight, I have been quite successful!! It is such a fun way to earn some extra moolah and has been such a blessing. I am so glad that God gave me that little push that made me dive right into it! It's fabulous.... and not to mention I get to wear gorg jewelry everyday..
One more month of the 45 minute commutes to downtown... not that I am counting down our move at work or anything...
I have been working out like a mad woman lately and I'm loving it. I am FINALLY seeing progress after 2 1/2 years which makes me want to work harder. I have been running and running and running for forever it seems and my time is finally starting to improve. I looked down on Wednesday to see that I was running at a pace of 8:35... WHAT? Not sure how long that actually lasted, but it happened... and that's all that matters. I am an 11 minute mile kind of gal. Awesomeness.
Eleanor (baby sister) got head cheerleader!! Get it girl!! I just love this! (but then it makes me feel like a bit of a loser that I was the only sis not to have the honor... Gah) O, and she made All-American at camp last week... and as I type, she is at her very last day of Betty Aden Dance Camp Ever. Sad. Good thing Hayes will start going in just a few years. So wish I could be at the program this afternoon :( Best of luck Sista Girl!
And finally, yesterday I hit the jackpot at the Old Navy swim suit sale... You should most definitely hit that up!! Up to 60% off plus a 15% off coupon. I felt like I was robbing the place! Y'all didn't think this was all going to be serious did you?
And now I am off to celebrate all of the above and get my tan on with a gals trip to the beach with the Mom, Sisters and Niece.
He fills my life with good things.
