A few days ago I made a second attempt at cooking Sunday dinner. I found a recipe for homemade meat sauce labeled as “easy.” Thank goodness it was in fact easy and took less time than the Kale soup to prepare.
I paired the meat sauce with whole wheat pasta, Caesar salad, and a peanut butter chocolate pie for dessert.
Everything turned out better than I expected. Both recipes are ones I would make again.
This set of Rachael Ray baking sheets is on sale for $29. If you use the code WKND when you checkout online it will bring your total down to $23. Twenty three dollars for 3 cookie sheets!
Originally, this set was priced at $59! I would say $23 is a pretty good deal. Be sure you choose in store pickup in order to get around having to pay for shipping.
I purchased this set several weeks back. The only baking sheet I had before was given to me by my Mom. I don’t cook very often but I am proud to say I’ve got the baking thing down. I can make a mean cookie!
Several retailers are having sales this weekend for Labor Day. Macy’s is one of them. The set of glasses I shared with you last week are also on sale for $15.
I took a short break from blogging back in July and it has been difficult to get back in the swing of things. Before that break, sharing details about my life had become a habit. I’ve been posting, writing, and sharing stories with you since the fall of 2016. I love to share, I wouldn’t continue on this path if I didn’t. There are times though when I wish I could hide. That sounds dramatic but it’s true. Through SometimeSaturday you are able to see all sides. The good, the bad, and the ugly. That’s intimidating.
At the beginning of July I took a whole week off in order to spend time with my family. That break allowed me to recharge and get away from my typical tasks. By the time I got back to Dallas I longed to keep to myself. That feeling of safety when I was back home is something I wish I felt day to day. I decided to keep my new apartment and new relationship to myself. Somehow that made everything feel even more exciting. It felt like mine and no one else’s.
I am finally (at a slow pace that I apologize for) starting to share more and more, little by little. Just like you’re used to. Especially those of you who have followed this fashion blog since the beginning. I’m just a regular woman with good days and bad. A great amount of confidence offset by days of self doubt. I appreciate those of you who continue to follow along. Those who tell my Mom how much you enjoy reading my blog posts. Those of you who send sweet messages/texts/emails when you use one of my links to purchase an item you saw on SometimeSaturday.
I most likely will never have a million followers or be able to share 20 items at a time like other bloggers, but I do promise to continue to share my story and all of the things that make me feel most confident. We all deserve to look and feel our very best. I have a letter that my grandma wrote to me years ago framed on my desk at work. It reads “Enjoy every day for you deserve all the happiness in the world. I love you.” It’s a nice reminder that I have some pretty powerful people in my corner, people who are rooting for me and want me to be the best I can be. That’s what I wish for you. I hope you’re able to enjoy each day and I hope you’re able to experience the happiness you deserve.
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.
