Stick A Sock In It

 Lace Shrug: Deb, Tube Top: Walmart, Wide Leg Trousers: Old Navy (old), Necklace: Agape Love Boutique, Shoes: Payless (old), Bracelet: Premier Designs


 loving // The sock bun! Totally easy peasy. Perfect for messy unwashed hair. But looks very sophisticated. 
PLUS +++ When you take it out it gives you KILLLERRRR gorgeous curls. Next time I wear my hair like this will be at night, so that I can have amazing curls the next day. If you dont know how to create the sock bun look, 
I used {this} video tutorial, to figure it out.

 reading // Really Bad Girls Of The Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs. Ive read the first book "Bad Girls of the Bible" and loved it. The author re-tells the stories of some of the bible's "bad girls" in a new modern way. She uses them to speak to the bad girl in all of us. Showing how God used them as examples, or changed them and how we can learn from them. Its a great book if you want to experience God's grace in a unique way.

watching // I dont normally watch TV. If I do its because its on in the background while the kids or The Hubs is watching one of their shows. But since I had been sick and bed ridden for 3 days straight last week I decided to find a show on Netflix to watch. I found and started watching Drop Dead Diva. And I LOVE, LOVE it! 
The plot: A vapid aspiring model killed in a car crash gets brought back to life as an intelligent, overweight lawyer, hoping to find the meaning of inner beauty. 
Ive always sort of wanted to be a lawyer, and since being a "heavy" girl myself//on my weight loss journey this show totally appeals to me.

anticipating  // Like a little kid I am actually anticipating my birthday. I will be 28 on August 8th. I dont have any exciting plans... though the Big Mexican Fiesta themed party I was unable to throw myself last year would be awesome to do this year. haha

laughing about //Every time I happen to catch this state farm commercial I laugh. EVERY.FREAKIN.TIME. Talk about hilar, its one of the funniest commercials ever!
"She sounds HIDEOUS"... "Well, She's a Guy, soo..."

listening to //Shadowfeet By Brooke Fraser, Alive by Natalie Grant, and What Love Really Means by J.J. Heller. These are 3 songs that I listen to daily. First I love each one of them and they each mean something special to me. Their lyrics really speak to me and even bring me to tears at times. They are also songs that I am practicing to do as song specials in church & for our family CD.

eating //Ive been on a big fruit kick lately. 
I found nectarines back in the grocery store this week and was so excited!!!

working on //Surprisingly even though I am closing my shop this month, I have still been working on some new headband & jewelry designs. If I decide to re-open I want some fresh looks in there...Things have been weird for me though. So I am still unsure what I am going to do with my shop at this point.

wishing // To get out of this weird funk I have been in. Also wishing my weight loss wasn't so much hard work! And that I can be at my goal weight already.

 inspired by // Much Love, Illy. Yes because I totally got this fun post idea from her, and as it turns out she was actually inspired by Sometimes Sweet's "Currently" post. :)
