Favorite “PIns” Friday and Rain

Hey friends, Happy Friday! Today I’m excited because it’s been raining. I didn’t realize I could get so excited about rain, but we haven’t seen it for quite a while in our area, so I’m thrilled! Okay, enough about rain, I want to share some of my favorite “pins” with you today.

I’ve told you before I love the What I Wore blog because she wears such cute and stylish clothes. As you can imagine the scarf drew me to this pin. Isn’t it adorable? I also love a simple white t-shirt. I love the wedge heels but I don’t usually wear them with shorts.


I can’t get enough color this summer and this outfit is full of color! The hot pink dress and neon necklace compliment each other.


Don’t you love all the colorblocking? I’m so glad colorblocking will be staying around for the Fall 2012 season!

Speaking of Fall 2012, I’m going to be sharing some fall trends in the next few weeks. It’s hard to believe its time to start thinking about fall fashion!

I’ve also got something else I’m hoping to share with you on Monday! I can’t wait!

Praying you have a blessed weekend!

What I Wore~I Love Colorblocking!

Good morning!

I’m questioning myself this week as to why I do these What I Wore posts.

I don’t wear anything spectacular but I do try to dress tastefully

and add some trendy pieces.

For women over 40, we sometimes question what we should and shouldn’t be wearing.

So when I take these pictures it helps me see what I like and don’t like about my style.

I had another funeral visitation to go to this past week and this is what I wore.

Top: TJ Maxx

Black pants: I’ve had for years!

Tan Sandals: Forever 21 ( I broke my own rule and shopped at

Forever 21, I do love their accessories.)

Mother’s day for church I wore this and for some reason, I wasn’t crazy about it.

Top: JCpenney

Skirt: JCPenney

Nude pumps: I can’t remember!

I took this picture at my daughter’s house and I obviously didn’t

get a great picture (it’s too grainy!).

I love colorblocking~green top/hot pink pants.

 Green Top: Target

Hot pink pants: JCPenney

Black Sandals: Kohl’s

Jean Jacket: Gap

My favorite thing about this spring/summer season is colorblocking. You can’t go to

any clothing stores without seeing it.

Have you tried colorblocking yet?

Beauty For the Heart~~This morning my devotion was on concentrating on today!

So many times we look ahead and sometimes we try to go ahead of God and

the plans he has for us. So today, don’t worry about tomorrow.

Live today, serve Him today. Tomorrow will take care of itself.

You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail. Proverbs 19:21 NLT

Have a blessed day friends!

Accessorize Your Mom This Mother’s Day With A Handbag

Good morning friends!

Today we’re going to continue to honor our Mom’s with gift ideas for Mother’s Day.

I was blessed to have an amazing Mother and although she is not with me here on earth

her legacy lives on in each of her children and her grandchildren.

I love the quote that says,  “A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie

for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” ~Tenneva Jordan

That was my Mom. Although I know she loved pie, she would have given it to her children,

hands down. I have countless memories of Mom staying up half the night to make us a

costume, help us with a school project, or make cupcakes for a school party.

Looking back, I don’t know how she did it all! But I’m so thankful for my Mom and although

I’m heartbroken that she’s gone, I still want to celebrate her life!

If you’re looking for something special to get your Mom this Mother’s Day, why not accessorize

her with a cute handbag. There are so many to choose from this spring/summer season and I’m

sure any Mom could use a new handbag! Here are several that I love~

This over the shoulder is for the trendy Mom and would be great to carry when you don’t want

to worry with a big bulky purse. I also love the color!


Casually sipping coffee at Starbucks or running errands around town with your children in tow,

every Mom would love this carry-all shopper handbag by Liz Claiborne. It’s perfect for all occasions.


This stylish colorblock tote would make any Mom fashionable for the spring/summer season.

It’s by Simply Vera Vera Wang.


Again, this season is all about color blocking! With a simple trim and polished silvertone hardware,

this gorgeous Style&co. bag would be perfect for any Mom.


 This is my favorite one by Steve Madden at Macy’s (actually there are others I like better

but they are way too pricey for me!) This handbag is elegant and highlights a pebbled texture

with shiny gold tone hardware, including chain-link detail on the detachable shoulder strap.

I love the chain-link detail and I’m on the hunt for a handbag that has that detail.


Accessories are a great way to add trendy fashion to any Mom’s wardrobe without having to

spend a lot of money. There are so many great ones to choose from!

Do you know what you’re getting your Mom for Mother’s Day? I’d love to know!

Beauty For the Heart~~One of the sweetest memories my sister and I have of Mom when she

was dying with cancer was at the hospital when she was receiving her first (and only) chemo

treatment. She looked so beautiful laying back in the chair hooked up to the IV that would

administer the drugs. It was hard for us to see and tears started streaming down Traci’s face.

I was trying hard not to cry and told her to try and be strong for Mom.

Mom saw Traci and said, “It’s okay, sweetie, you can cry.

You know what tears are, don’t you?”  Traci answered, “No.” Mom lovingly said,

“Tears are liquid prayers that flow straight to the heart of God.”

So typical of our Mom, always knowing just what to say.

On my, I can’t begin to tell you how many liquid prayers that have flown

straight to the heart of God over the loss of my Mom! 

I wonder how many of you have recently shed some tears.

Maybe because of the loss of a loved one, or the end of a marriage, maybe you’ve been hurt

by a friend. Whatever your pain, your tears have not gone unnoticed by a loving God.

God hears, and oh how he cares!

Praying today that you will feel his never ending love for you.

He will wipe every tear from their eye. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain,

for the old order of things has passed away. Revelation 21:4
