Out of the comfort zone.


I'd been talking about wanting biker boots recently.  I know, weird.   And out of my comfort zone. But they're trendy, and something about them appeals to me.  SO, Zach was kinds enough to pick some out for me (really sweet) recently as a surprise.  Sadly, they were a bit narrow at the ankle, and my generous hips just don't do well with that.  So, I found some similar, but a little more flattering to my shape to get instead.  These babies - in the photo above.  I'm pretty pleased.  Plus, they're super comfy (If you EVER, ever want shoes that will last you the whole day - look no further than Cole Haan - they made the best decision ever when they paired with Nike).  Now I just have to get up the guts to wear them.  Skinny jeans and chunky sweaters, here they come!  {P.S.  I found mine at TJMaxx - they're called the "Alix" Moto Boot}.

...


 This. Girl. - I love her.

Two is hard sometimes, you know that?  So fun and so taxing - all at the same time.  
This little person becoming their own human being, little by little. 
Our girl, she is very much her own person.  Stubborn, strong-willed.  But sweet and cuddly.  And SO much fun.  
Asking Jesus for help as we aim to shape this little being - allowing her to blossom, yet to obey.
In my frustration sometimes I imagine this will of hers standing up to something more substantial in the years to come (not just potty training or foods she dislikes), which gives me some relief - She'll stand strong to her faith being rocked; She'll ward off that idiot of a boy (they'll all be idiots in my opinion, I assume) who thinks he is worthy of her attention.

He has created her this way - our feisty, silly, sweet little girl.  I am so thankful.

Minted at Christmas!

Christmas is coming!! I'm getting kind of (ok - more than kind of) giddy with excitement.  
And on that note, I've been checking out Christmas cards options.  These foil printed cards from Minted  are on the top of my list.  Seriously, foil-press, I heart you.  I can't decide which one is my favorite.  
{Um, also - they have glitter envelope liners.  Yep.}  

P.S. - 15% off foil-pressed cards right now (and some other deals, too)! :)  

Other favorites from the Minted Holiday collection include the more budget-friendly petite cards and postcards.

I recommend taking a look.  :)  My favorites below {click on photos for links}:
