So freaking accurate!

Someone sent me this today. 100% accurate. If you’re offended by this or any of the other posts, look around, you’re probably causing the problem. You may just be doing exactly what this image says.


Ephesians 4:29-32American Standard Version (ASV)

29 Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for edifying as the need may be, that it may give grace to them that hear.

30 And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, in whom ye were sealed unto the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and railing, be put away from you, with all malice:

32 and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, even as God also in Christ forgave you


Ephesians 4:29-32English Standard Version (ESV)

29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted,forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you


Life can only get better without such treatment!

Julep Fuchsia Fizzy Mystery Box

I’m VERY late posting this, please forgive me. Life has been very hectic, and I’ve been very forgetful. It wasn’t until the September Julep Maven box showed up today that I realized I forgot to post this!

I’ve been pretty good about not giving in to the wonderful mystery boxes the Julep offers…But this time I couldn’t resist. Not sure why, but I just couldn’t.



This box came with 4 polishes (5 because I ordered an extra polish, Alexa, it’s the light purple one.) Lock down your brows and the Beach Tonic dry body oil and nail decals.


The colors that came in the box: Connie, Jenny (Favorite!!) Mariska, and Trisha.

I have not even opened the Lock down your brows, but I hear it’s good to help keep them in place or help them grow–both problems I don’t experience yet in life. The Body Oil, is a great item, but malfunctions easily. I e-mailed Julep and a replacement is on it’s way— but reviews say that ALL their bottles have issues with the sprayer.

This box was 100% worth the money. Don’t believe me. I’ve done a price break down below:

Connie: $14 for non Maven and $11.20 for Maven

Jenny: $14 for non Maven and $11.20 for Maven

Mariska: $14 for non Maven and $11.20 for Maven

Trisha: $14 for non Maven and $11.20 for Maven

Body Oil: $23 for non Maven and $18.40 for Maven

Lock Down your Bows: $22 for non Maven and $17.60 for Maven

Total: $101 for non maven and $80.80 for Maven
The box costs just $24.99 (plus tax) which is a steal of a deal if you ask me!


“Good Friends are like stars, You don’t always see them but they’re always there.”


Back-Left to front-right. Ben, Mitchell, Rob, our neighbor Hilary and myself.

So, if you don’t know us personally, you don’t know that Mitchell’s best friend(s) live in Illinois. We have been trying and hoping to send him to visit, but just haven’t had the funds. So a couple weeks ago when they asked Mitchell if they could come for Labor Day weekend, we immediately said YES!
