Up until last week I only had one set of glasses for the kitchen. Six from a set that my Mom gave me and two plastic cups I picked up at Target one weekend.
I found this set online and decided to order a set of 4. I thought the shape was interesting and I like that they’re not super sized like one of those cups from 7 Eleven.
Right now the set of 4 is on sale for less than $20. I believe they’ll go back to full price on August 21st. If you like them be sure to place your order by tomorrow evening. Macy’s usually does not offer free shipping unless your purchase totals $50. Because of that, I usually have my Macy’s orders shipped to the NorthPark location here in Dallas. Once your order is ready for pickup, they’ll email you to let you know. I try not to pay for shipping, especially when it’s something like this and you’re getting a really great deal!
Ya’ll have a great week : )
The ability to pursue without growing tired.
Is there an area in your life where you’re relentless? I sure hope so. My challenge for myself this week is to be relentless. It’s so common to grow tired and weary and eventually withdraw from the race to take an easier path. Don’t do that. Hang in there. You’re capable of anything and you can achieve whatever your heart desires.
I believe in you. God believes in you. His love is relentless and I hope you know that.
The sermon at church yesterday was all about satisfaction and how we’re all living life in the rat race. Some of us think “if I could just get a pay raise.” Others tell themselves “once I’m able to buy my dream home I’ll be happy.” What’s your line? What’s the thing in life you’re currently chasing? Marriage? A family of your own? Money? Power?
We all have something. Something we’re working toward. Something we think we need, and once we get all will be well in the world.
The punch line of the sermon was this “your soul can only be satisfied by the one who made it.”
It’s so true. We reach these milestones, and we do the impossible yet it’s never enough. As soon as we accomplish something crazy we look around for the next thing worth chasing. Take a look at your priorities and make sure you’ve got them in the right order. Seek the Lord. Seek his love. Everything else is temporary.
Well hey there! I hope you’re having a fun summer. I took a nice long break from all things work. It’s nice to step away from time to time and recharge. I hope you’re able to do the same.
I’ll be back to my normal 3 blog posts per week soon. Just wanted to give you an update so you aren’t worried.
Cant wait to see some of you this Saturday in Austin!
The living room is still missing an important piece but at least the new rug was delivered yesterday! This rug is gorgeous and I’m so happy I was able to find it on sale and free shipping.
I ordered a set of these black decorative pillows for the living room.
I also added two of these ivory pillows to the room. What colors do you like best for the living room? You’ll be able to see what I like as I add (little by little) to the new place. Almost all of the furniture is here. Now it’s time to settle in.
Once I started shopping around for a rug I realized why I’ve never had a rug. Those darn things are expensive! What the heck. It’s a piece of material that just lies on the floor. How fancy can it be?
I found this colorful rug on sale and ordered it online. It should get here next week. I’ll be sure to share all the items I find for the new place with you, little by little.
I hate that question. I’ve hated it since high school. Back in high school my honest answer to that question was always met with comments like this : “you’re so lucky” or “I wish I was that small.”
I never had to worry about my weight until college. As a freshman in college I no longer played sports year round. I no longer had my Mom to make me delicious and healthy meals 3 times a day. I put on a little weight that first semester of college and ever since then it’s been an issue. My weight is something I think about no matter what the scale says.
I bought my very own scale in grad school and since then I have used it almost every single day. For 8 years I would wake up, turn on the shower and then weigh myself as I waited for the water to get hot.
I recently realized that I’m never at ease with the number. If I was 3 pounds over my “ideal weight” I would obsess about losing those 3 pounds. If I was under or at my ideal weight, I would worry about maintaining it. God forbid I weigh 10 or 15 pounds over that ideal weight. On those days I wanted to throw in the towel.
I’m in the process of moving from one part of town to another. When I move (which is quite often) everything I own goes through this process : keep, give away, or toss. As I was packing I realized that I’ve never applied the process to that scale. Somehow, after all these years, it’s remained in a category with my jewelry. It’s coming with me regardless. No questions asked.
I’m sick of weighing myself. I’m tired of letting that number define how I feel that day. I’ve decided to get rid of it. The scale will not get to live with me at the new place. Gotta say goodbye.
I’ll be able to tell where I am based on the way my clothes fit and how I feel. I won’t be completely in the dark, but I do feel a sense of freedom and it hasn’t even been a week. I’ve signed up for Orange Theory to keep myself in shape and have some sort of accountability for health and fitness.
You have to find what works for you. What worked for me for 8 years no longer feels like the right thing to do. Cheers to a new chapter. Cheers to you feeling your very best, no matter the size or the number on that scale. Cheers to dominating because you can!
