Pink Clutch from Sitting Pretty

I have a confession. I have become a pretty big fan of shopping via Instagram. So when I saw this pink clutch at one of my favorite stores, I just had to buy it. Thankfully the owners are so sweet and were more than willing to send it up to Napa. Every time I go home to visit, I just have to stop by Sitting Pretty in Chowchilla. They have the cutest outfits and accessories. I mean look, how cute is this pink clutch?

I stopped by my best friends store in Oakdale last weekend and was finally with my mom so she was able to take a few pictures of this outfit. Want to see the post from the store grand opening? You can see it here. We got to wander around the new store and hang out with my best friend and her mom. A few people laughed at me because they thought that I purposely matched the color scheme of the store with my outfit. I will say that was perfectly planned. Just kidding.

I tell you what, I truly miss doing all my photo shoots with my mom. Not having her live close to me has been an adjustment and I know that you all have noticed. I haven’t quite mastered the tripod photo shoots yet. I’m working on it though. 🙂

Thank you!

Thank you all so much for following along on this new and exciting journey. If you’re tired of not seeing posts that often, feel free to follow me on Instagram, i’m a lot more active on there. I hope you all have a great Friday and have a wonderful weekend. If you’re ever up near Napa, you know who to email. I’ve got plenty of recommendations of places to eat, drink and shop!

God bless!Cursive Signature

Whew, a new post!! YAY! I have to tell you, i’ve been trying to keep my sanity over here lately. While blogging is not my full time job, it does require quite a bit of my time and while I LOVE blogging the last two months I needed a break. So I took it. I am thrilled that I have taken the time I needed and am ready to start back posting on a more regular schedule. So what better way to come back than with quite a few new posts, including this blue dress?! Woohoo! I’m pretty excited about it.

If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning of this year you have seen some awesome posts about my Fit Journey. Well i’ll update you more on that in a few weeks but right now, let’s talk about how stoked I am that I fit into this dress. My mom called me one night while I was volunteering at church and told me to come out to the parking lot. My heart raced, I had no idea what she was doing at church at that moment. I came outside and she was sitting in the car with a bag. This dress was in it. I opened the bag and fell in love immediately but was so sad to see it wasn’t my size. I looked at her and told her, it’s too small. She said, well just try it. So I took it home with me.

That night I tried it on and called my mom in tears. She barely answered the phone before I screamed, “It fits!!!” She laughed and told me that she knew it would. I had no idea I had lost enough weight to fit into it. She found it at Kohls and couldn’t pass it up. I’m so glad she didn’t! It’s my favorite dress!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday! God bless!

It’s small business Saturday!!! Don’t forget to shop and support your favorite small businesses today! Today I thought I would share about one of my favorite small businesses, Imperishable Clothing. If there is one thing I have never hid on my blog, that is my faith. So needless to say I was more than excited when Imperishable Clothing offered to send me their Even So shirt. I LOVE this company. I am a huge supporter of shirts that have uplifting sayings, bible verses or any sort of encouragement on them. It is always nice to come across a brand that has the same basis of faith that I do. You may have heard of them for their famous Jesus Saves Bro shirts that you can find here. They are awesome!

I have never hid my faith on my blog and love when my faith and companies get to come together for a beautiful piece of work. There was a great cloud display in the sky a few days ago so I grabbed my mom, who happens to be my photographer, and headed for the hills. There is just something amazing about being up above the city streets, where there is wide open space, tons of skyline and beautiful scenery. The sun was just starting to peak out from behind the clouds so we started snapping away. The result? One of my favorite shoots to date.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and laughter. God bless!
