huzzah!

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

Thankful for dinner with a new friend and hearing about God’s redemption story in her life.

Super excited and grateful that our 6th year of homeschooling is starting to wind down. We are looking forward to summer.

I’m in a redecorating mood, so I’ve been pinning lots to my DECORATE board.

I re-watched Sabrina (the 1954 version) this week and remembered how much I love old movies. I used to watch them all the time when I was a kid. An Affair to Remember was my all-time favorite movie.

Ms. Tips is having a 20% off sale this weekend! This patterned dress is perfect for spring, so is this denim dress.

Love this denim sandal and these leather strap sandals are on sale.

Vintage and denim lovers… there are lots of good things on sale from Fair Season.

I was moved by my pastor’s tribute to his first pastor, who happened to be my first pastor too. I am encouraged to write letters to the people who have influenced and shaped my life, and let them know exactly how much of an impact they have had.

How beautiful is this…”God’s plan to make his grace known to the world is not for a bunch of perfect people to live together in perfect harmony, but rather, for sinful people to cling desperately to Jesus, even in the hardest instances. ” This is from the article, Every Good Church is Messy. I also love when it states this, “God is bringing people of different backgrounds, nationalities, socioeconomic statuses, and spiritual maturity levels together (Ephesians 3:10). The church’s diversity is a beautiful thing, and part of the beauty is that it grows us by bringing us into orbit with people unlike us — sometimes with people who are hard to love.” How much this rings true in our church family.

It’s Mother’s Day tomorrow and we look forward to celebrating with my mom, and I think Ben and the girls have a little something planned. Happy Mothering Day to all those whose hearts have been given to serving and shaping the lives of others!

kid room dilemmas

I posted this dilemma (#firstworldproblems) in my Insta story, but thought I would share it here too. We cleaned up Soul and Glow’s room (see before here) and now we are debating on whether or not to leave the rug, use sheepskin, or let the floors steal the show. Glow likes the rug, but Soul doesn’t, so that doesn’t help the decision much. I like the rug, but I think it makes things look a bit cluttered. The bare floors are pretty, but it looks like it’s missing something. Maybe it needs some texture? The sheepskin does seem to solve that problem, but is the room more cozy with a rug? I don’t know. What do you think?

jeans and espadrilles

I’m a shorty, so I like to wear shoes that give me a little height. These espadrilles give me a little oomph in height, but still comfortable. This is another pair of vintage jeans I found recently. It’s not as soft as this pair, but I guess I will have to make sure to take it on many adventures to make it nice and worn. You can’t really see the detailing here, but there’s zig zag stitching around the button fly that’s quite unique. It was way too long for me, so I gave it a raw hem. I’ve been living in this pair, my mom jeans, and my cream painter pants. They all play nice and take turns getting worn. Of course, my dresses must not be neglected either.

on me: linen top, vintage (similar here, and on sale!). jeans, vintage (lots of options here and here). espadrilles, castaner (similar here and here). straw bag, wovenfolk.

real life messes

Don’t look at the previous post and think my whole house is that neat because it certainly isn’t. Here is the proof. This is pretty much what the girls’ rooms look like most of the time. Currently, our guest room is in a state of disarray as it has been a catch all for furniture pieces I need to list on craigslist. I’m itching for the summer, so that I can start our big purge. I need to go through clothes that don’t fit and toys that don’t get played with. We also need to build a bookshelf somewhere because we have tons of books that need a place. With homeschooling and having girls that love to read, our book collection keeps growing, and we have no proper shelves to house them.

Soul and Glow are excited to deep clean their room because they want it to look like “Airbnb.” Soul has also requested to have a white duvet (it’s currently light pink) and I need to figure out how to decorate the rest of their room. True has the hardest time letting things go because she is super sentimental, which is probably more like Ben since he still has orange juice containers that I gave him when we were dating. I need to make sure he gets rid of some of that stuff this summer too. Also, I have two rooms downstairs that I never finished painting, so I’m going to attempt to get that done soon. Summer hasn’t even started and my to-do list is pretty long.
