Four Months Later…

Well hello there.

Sitting down to write this, I realized it’s been four months almost to the day since I last posted. There’s been nothing happening specifically to keep me from posting – no major world events or complete life shifts that have taken up my time. Just living like a lady of leisure (pronounced “Lay-Zure” with hand coifed in the air).

Looking at that last post, it’s funny to me to see anything that took place earlier this year. We had no idea what was coming down the pike. But you know who did know? God. God can throw down in a game of who knew it first because He knew as He FORMED US IN OUR MOM’S BELLY that we were going to live during this time. And because He knew that, He equipped us with all the tools we need to not just survive through it, but to thrive.

I made this video for our church towards the end of March. What I say in it is true then and true now. It’s all about the carefree life God wants us living. Take two minutes to watch because it can really change your life.

I promise to be back regularly (again) to make every day a spiffy day!

I contend that Athleisure is the best thing to hit clothes since pockets.

And just like pockets – everyone is getting into it #seewhatididthere.

Most recently Alta’rd State has come out with a fresh line of Athleisure options – and they’re awesome. Love the color palate, love the textures and I especially love that the price point doesn’t require a visit with a Bank Loan Officer *cough Lululemon *cough *cough.

Here is a look at and my opinion of several of their newest pieces you can find at their West Town Mall location!

Spiffy Family Holiday Outfits

I’ve been making TV appearances every other week for six and a half years now. In that time I can think of a handful of special appearances like the time I announced being pregnant with Jackson or the time my husband went with me (and made me the latest I’ve ever been, haha). I’d include the time I announced Elianna but it wasn’t as exciting only because there was a miscommunication and we kind of glossed over it. Oh well.

Recently, however, I had another TV appearance to add to that list – I had my little boy join me on air! It wasn’t his first time on TV, haha no that happened when he was three months old. But it was his first time being a clothing model.

So give it a watch and see how good he does! Oh yeah and enjoy the looks for your kids from Dillard’s. And double oh yeah – there’s some good tips on dressing your family in there too ;)
