New cupcake apron + photobombs

I got a new apron the other day! Can you believe it was hiding in the kids section at Ross? It's the perfect size for little me :)
Now, everybody knows I hate cooking... But I'm pretty good when I'm in the mood to make something. But with this apron I think I've found an excuse and maybe some motivation to get in the kitchen! LOL

Everytime I tried to take a picture with my apron my dad decided to photobomb me. I didn't even know it until I looked at it while uploading! Oh well, now you see some of the silliness that goes on around here.

Happy cooking!

A deep-seated feeling of resentment.
Something that is held against someone for an issue they haven't discussed or resolved peacefully.

"I wish I could believe you then I'll be alright
But now everything you told me really don't apply to the way I feel inside
Loving you was easy once upon a time...

Just can't seem to get over the way you hurt me
Don't know how you gave another who didn't mean a thing the very thing you gave to me
I thought I could forgive you and I know you've changed
As much as I wanna trust you I know it ain't the same

I may never understand why
I'm doing the best that I can and I tried and I tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

 I tried taking pictures with my sister, but as usual she refuses. ONE DAY my darling, one day...
Just know that she's on my left lol

Earlier this week I attended church with my sister two, count 'em, TWO nights in a row! Which is extremely unusual for me. I've never been to a church service at night, much less twice in a row. And on a weeknight? Yeah, different but still nice. Although the guest speaker was a little more dramatic that I would have liked him to be...Nonetheless I took what I needed from the services.

Most of what was said throughout the first day was irrelevant to me. They were speaking on God being a father to the fatherless. For example, children and adults who are emotionally stunted and whose inner child is crying out for the 'father' or 'mother' role to be filled. Some fill that hole with sex, drugs, or even other people. But God is there waiting to fill that hole in your heart if you just lift your head up and allow him to.
I don't have that problem, but I can relate because most of the people in my family and a bunch of people I went to high school with don't have both parents in their lives. I feel for them. I feel for the dozens of people in the church that night balling their eyes out whenever something was said that spoke to their situations.

I swear that Monday night service was just for me, though. The Lord was speaking through the prophet straight into my heart. Have you ever heard or seen something that instantly hits a nerve?

"How long will you continue to walk on both sides of the line?"
"Your own doubt is blocking your blessing."

Girls day with mom!

Today my lovely mother and I were desperate to get out of the house. There's lot's of construction going on in our house so we've all spent the last two weeks secluded in our rooms. My mother came up with the brilliant idea of retail therapy! We started off at the dollar store and as one of our old traditions, we put on funny headbands, sunglasses, and hats anytime we passed them.Believe me, since Easter is soon approaching there were TONS of fun little accessories in there. But I'll respect my mother's request NOT to post all the silliest ones (which happen to be my favorite) and just show you the nicest ones LOL.
Knowing me, put me in a store with dresses and I'm doomed! I just can't resist! And who would want to? I must have tried on at least 20 and I found a really cute owl sweater. Funny enough if you know anything about the way that I shop you'd know that despite my instant attachment and general love of new clothes- I didn't buy a single thing. Although I did put the blue denim dress in layaway =)

 While my mom was shopping around looking for something 'cute and fresh' to add to her wardrobe for the coming season, I was on a secret mission... I found her a suuuper cute dress! I've seen it in Seventeen magazine, yes I still read Seventeen at age 19 so what!, and I thought it would be perfect for her body type. I found the last one in her size, forced her to try it on, and I was right! No surprise there ;) She fell in love with it and it looks so darn good on her petite self! 


We then swooned and sighed over the vibrant colors in the home decor section. I'm sure we're not the only ones who redecorate our living space in our head every time we walk down those aisles.

 Look at what I found at Walgreens!  They have adorable mouse shaped ring pops inside. Much too small for me and clearly meant for toddler sized humans. Currently contemplating on whether or not to o back and get them simply because they are adorable. I'd give the candy away, maybe...

Since my hair color has grown out and faded away to pretty much nothing, I'm on the hunt for a new hair dye. I can't decide! I want either a deep shade of red or a light shade of brown. Typically the rule is: lighter in the warmer sunny months and darker in the cold grey months. But I find myself leaning toward the deeper shades. Probably because I had warm brown hair all last year and I'm getting bored of it. Maybe I'll go lighter though, it does bring out my eyes. Oh well, the search continues.

So as usual my dad and I were sent to pick up pizza, YUM! We took pictures at almost every stoplight, another tradition of ours.

Oh and did I mention I met the cute boy at Walgreens!? Okay he was the cashier so I didn't meet him in a traditional sense. But he was really nice and had great hair. It was long and curly at the ends (swoon) and when I complimented him he told me that he was going to donate it to Locks of Love soon! How sweet of him, right?

Today was pretty fun, along with going over my mom's BFF's house for some sweet tea and conversation. Tomorrow we're gonna go back after some more shopping. Girls day #2! =)
