Weekend Recap 2.5.18

Weekend Recap:

Ya’ll, one of the biggest things I’ve seen in my life was reiterated over the weekend. “God’s timing is perfect”. I know it sounds kind of like a Pinterest quote, but let me tell you, it’s completely true. Four little words I’ve heard since birth, and I have seen it impacting my life in a major way. While I can’t go into any details, it’s amazing how God can use certain people, to impact other’s just at the time they are needing it, without even knowing it. Let me tell you about a smaller instance where I saw God work in my favor over the weekend. My weekend was packed full, they have been for months now. Basically, to the point where I’m constantly running around crazy. So, like recent weekends I knew I had several things I needed to get accomplished, and as I started on these items, I realized very quickly, in the morning, that I didn’t think I would have time to get it all done. I took a small break, realizing how stressed I was trying to get everything completed (due to deadlines) to pray and ask God for time, to extend my day. Sounds like a weird thing to pray for, but if anyone can give time and extend a day, it would be God. So, I kept going on with my list, and it literally felt like my day had slowed down, and I had all this extra time. I got all of my work done in perfect timing. At the end of the day, realizing I got EVERYTHING done, I was questioning myself how I was able to get it all done, I knew God had his hand in on it. I couldn’t help but smile and give him a big THANK YOU! He was there for me, when I needed him. Trust in God, his timing is definitely perfect.

This weekend we worked very heavily with landscaping and decorating our back patio. We wanted to get it done for a Super Bowl party that we had thrown. Hours and hours of hauling and laying rock on Saturday (sneak peek below), then I changed, cleaned up and had 45 minutes to get all of my looks shot for this week. I got done just in time to head down to one of my nanny jobs where I get to watch three beautiful little human beings. Sunday was filled with cleaning, grocery shopping, and preparing for our Super Bowl party. Then we had a fun Sunday evening watching the game.


Things I’m Loving:

In the spirit of V-Day, and another gift giving Holiday, I thought I would share an item that would be perfect for your man. My hubs is always traveling and is in need of a good duffle for overnight trips for work!

Spring is peeking it’s head around the corner, but it’s definitely still cold in most places, and Florida is still having it’s cold spells. I’m still living in cozy sweaters/cardigans and I’m loving this one.












Perfect Little Gift Sets

As soon as the Christmas season rolls around, the more “gift sets” come out. There is literally a gift set for everything and everyone. I personally love getting a gift set because there are multiple items in one gift. I love giving gift sets for that same reason! Plus, you get a little more bang for your buck. So, today I’m rounding up some of the best gift sets I’ve found on the internet! Click through the slideshow-all gifts are under $100!


Weekend Recap 11.27.17

Weekend Recap:

What a weekend it was indeed. Joy is being restored, and my heart is starting to mend in this season of giving. I always find myself feeling joy and peace when I give to others. I know Thanksgiving wasn’t technically on the “weekend”, but I’m going to include it and I’ll make it a quick recap! It felt so good to concentrate on giving to my family this past weekend-baking my first pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving, Black Friday shopping for gifts, celebrating my Grandma’s 90th birthday, then re-celebrating my mom’s birthday with her gift of an over night stay in Mt. Dora, and ringing in the Christmas season. After the festivities of Thanksgiving, and Black Friday shopping, some of our family took off on a small adventure to a little town called Mt. Dora. Each year this town lights up the city with their annual event to bring over 2 million lights on around the city. We had such a blast singing Christmas songs, exploring the town, and counting down to the lighting. Then, Santa led us down the road to a 40 foot Christmas tree on display. If you are interested in this event I’ll link it here.

To be honest, it was so nice to forget about the worries, anxiety, stresses and concentrate on other things, fun things! Though the Christmas season has always held a bit of heartache, I’m going to concentrate on finding joy in giving and enjoy this wonderful time of year! If you’re dealing with worries, and stresses, find ways to give to others this season, there are a lot of free options too, like volunteering at a local ministry or shelter! I’ve always found myself having a blast when I find a local place that need some volunteers.

Here are some things I’m loving:
