Bookworm Wednesday

I just got done reading this book and I loved it!! I'm sure most of you are familiar with Sophie Kinsella's book series "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and all the charm, comedy and love that are characteristic of those little gems are embedded in this book as well! No it's not a challenging, intellectual read, but hey, we all need a little light-hearted romance and fun in our "book worlds" every now and again :) I just adore Sophie's british lit style of writing and her humorous wit! Though I admit I'm a sucker for any sort of chick lit (go ahead and assume the obvious, Im a MAJOR cheeseball), this one was quite entertaining; if you love her other novels, you will love this one too!

Happy Hump Day!

3 Months!

Well, yesterday was the 3 month marker until our wedding day and I couldn't be more excited! MAC's family graciously came out to our reception site yesterday to help me with creative ideas to make our reception special and "ours"; I so appreciate their help and think everything is falling into place! Im beyond ready to start married life with MAC and to just be able to share life with him on a day to day basis (long distance makes that a bit tough right now)! We aren't going to see each other before the wedding, but I think that writing each other letters and reading them side by side (with a door or something to separate us) like this couple below did, makes for one intimate and precious moment! Hope y'all have a great start to the week!

Rainy Day Pick Me Up!

Well, the weather has been quite dreary lately; seems that we can't get the clouds, fog and rain to pick up and leave! So here are a few pictures that have brightened my days recently :)

I made chili the other day and it has provided some warm, comfort food on these cold, winter days!

When I went home this past weekend, my mom made a manicure appointment for her and I to have some indulgent girls time, and I got my nails painted this gorgeous color! It's called "Big

Hair, Big Nails" by OPI and it has cheered me up to see such a bright, fun color on my nails this week!

Love, Love, Love these boys! Can't believe my youngest brother is 15! He can drive me around; Yikes!! And did I mention I love these boys?!

Were only about 3 months our from our big day and I seriously CAN NOT WAIT to marry this man!!

This "little" brother is now 6'1, lefty pitcher for his high school team and quite a stud! Proud of him! And that adorable, cute, most precious thing you've ever seen is our baby brother Bear :)

Bookworm Wednesday

"I am above all thngs; your problems, your pain, and the swirling events in this ever-changing world. When you behold My Face, you rise above circumstances and res with Me in heavenly realms. This is the way of Peace, living in the Light of My Presence. I guarantee that you will always have problems in this life, but they must not become your focus. When you feel yourself sinking in the sea of circumstances, say "Help me Jesus!" and I will draw you back to Me. If you have to say that thousands of times daily, don't be discouraged. I know your weakness, and I meet you in that very place."

This came from my devotion this morning and I had to post it. So encouraging and uplifting; hope it does the same for you. The Jesus Calling devotion is wonderful and I highly recommend purchasing one! It has a devotion for every day of the year and it's written from the perspective of Jesus talking to you; it also has scripture that goes along with each devotion!

Hope today finds you joyful and encouraged!
