I linked up with Anna and Amber today to let you in on my recent loves in life. The link up is called Currently Loving. I encourage you to stop by their blogs and link-up or just see what they love and give some love.
I will begin with some lovely accessories/clothing. I love this earring and necklace set here that my sister Rebekah got for me as a Christmas gift from Rue 21 ($2 each). The pink is not only stunning but truly beautiful. If you will note these were taken before my recent haircut and make-up wearing days.
Top: Ebony eyes (gift)//Pants: 1st Kiss (thrifted at Goodwill $5)//Thonged Sandalls: Charlotte Russe (thrifted from Goodwill old)//Earrings: Rue 21 ($2)//Necklace: Rue 21 ($2).
I am SO thankful and in love with my first Forever 21 shirt and Lia Sophia necklace sent to me from Becky. I wore these two pieces for family photos Sunday, I love them so much. We don’t have a Forever 21 store where I live and every Lia Sophia party I get invited too I turn down because a). no extra money b). no babysitting provided even if I am interested in attending. So I was thrilled to receive these.
I recently loved visiting the new park in our town with the kids, my hubby and brother Jonathan.
What are you loving?
Now, I will get down to business and be honest with you and tell you that although I would love to blog more often and meet the goals I had made here in this post, I am finding it is difficult. Just in the last week my kids have been getting to bed later and since nights are clean up and tidy thingstime it leaves me little time for “me” time which does stress me out. I like using my blog as a way to be creative, social and present things I love and care about. I love connecting to other people, because let’s face it I rarely connect outside of my home with so many kids. My blog is an outlet but I shouldn’t make it my priority. There I said it! I sometimes get frustrated or upset that the kids aren’t going to sleep and that I can’t get on and blog or comment on people’s blogs. I recently read a post by Blaire (a mommy and blogger) here that captures just a bit more of how I feel about blogging, parenting, she nailed it, so go and read what she has to say as well.
