Wishful Weekend Wear

Pullover, JeansWedgesScarf

So, above you see what I would love to wear on our weekend getaway which is starting in........30 seconds! 
I better get going before I miss my ride! ;)

If I had no bills, I'd buy me those wedge sneakers first and foremost
and wear that heal down 'til it was a flat sneaker!

Would you dare to wear those too!? :)
Hope you wear what you wanna wear this weekend!
...and WE'RE OFF!

today and always

There is really nothing better than coming home to the man who has,
from the very beginning of our marriage, loved me sincerely!
Love is never perfect but it is always beautiful! 

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tights: wear them when you're cool!

dress, sweater, & tights: Target, heals: thrifted!

I am pretty sure tights were the worst things any young girl ever had/has to wear.  They bunched up. They fell down.  You wear them once and then you get a hole on the knee while you were swinging on the mokeybars, or something.  Then your mom tried to stop the hole from getting worse by putting some clear nail polish on it....Have you been there!?  You know what I'm talking about, right!?
Well, then why is it that all of a sudden, I love them?  Was there a certain date when all of a sudden it clicked in my brain,
"Tiff, you now love tights"...?  Do you think it could be due to the colder weather? Probably, yes! 
But seriously...I really could wear them any day in any color.  
I thought I would be extra daring and start out with .......tan (tan legs are not what is going on here...they look like my normal skin color...white!).  But I do have them in black, brown, and wait for it.......................GREEN!  Yup! Maybe I'm wearing tights 'cause it's winter and
maybe I bought green tights because I am dreaming of fresh, green grass and spring blossoms. 
Do you remember what grass looks like? Man, I'm antsy for spring.  Are you?!

Until good 'ol spring comes, I'm probably going to wear out my tights if you don't where's my clear nail polish?

Thoughts on Trust

As of late, this verse has been on my mind:

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; 
in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path." 
Proverbs 3:5-6

I am realizing more and more how much I struggle with trusting....
...trusting someone else to  "take over."
   I think I can do things the best way possible....but on my own.  
I have an idea in my head of how things should be; how they ought to be the turn out the best.  
I don't do this intentionally but after the fact--always after the fact--I realize that
I tried really hard to do something on my own without asking for help.  Usually, I'm exhausted in my own strength
to the point of which I feel overwhelmed.  I mean, if I ask for help.....I look weak, right?! WRONG! 
That's a lie from the enemy of this world.  
Asking God to take my life and make it happen in his plan and not in my own is the BEST thing I have realized.  
I must remember: just because something isn't normal and maybe it doesn't make sense to me right away, doesn't mean it isn't possible.

These verses in Proverbs are right...

If I trust God with everything in my life and all my heart....
If I trust him without trying to figure it our on my planner or with my "24 years of experience" in life
which means absolutely nothing compared to the Lord's wisdom -- He who knows all things...
If I trust him and acknowledge that He is all knowing...
He will make all things work together for my good...for what is best for me....

I'm trusting in His promises more than ever!

I trust that you had a good weekend.
May your week be filled with joy!

Ain't nobody got time for that!

Shoes, Sweatshirt, Sweatpants: Nike, Sunglasses: MENARDS (I know. Crazy!)

It's okay if... wear your Nike shoes and sweats without going to the gym.
...those Nike sweats are men's and not women's...sometimes it's more comfortable that way. went out in public wearing these clothes seen above. even document this outfit to demonstrate your "amazing style"
that is going to inspire all fashion bloggers to wear sweats fashionably! ;) ha!
...went to an antique store and people thought you mistook it for the gym.
Oh bother...
By "you", I mean "I"....yes, this all happened and it is QUITE okay.
Like come on!....Dressing up on a weekend, "Ain't nobody got time for that."
Nobody! ;) least not this time!

Here's to a comfortable weekend!

James and I are busy as can let's be casual, shall we?

I'm Nut-ellan'..

^^^Breakfast of champions!

Guess what!? I just found out that today is a very important day, but I'm nut-ellan' you why! ;)

(insert laugh here)

Okay, just because my jokes are plain ol' ridiculous, I'll tell ya what today is!
February 5th is World Nutella Day! Yay!
At first I couldn't believe it, but then I thought "no duh!"  
Why WOULDN'T they set aside a whole day for people to enjoy one of the best additions to the breakfast, snack, any-meal menu!?

I enjoy Nutella on fresh waffles--as you can see from Saturday's breakfast-- or as frosting on freshly-baked brownies...yum!
I'm drooling all over my keyboard just thinking about it.
Okay, no more bad jokes and then immediately grossing you out with the saliva thing! ;)

What's your favorite way to use Nutella? .....or are you not tellin'?
Happiest Nutella Day to you, my friends!
