Snatch A FREE Blanket Scarf

How was everyone's Thanksgiving? Did you y'all score any great Black Friday deals? I definitely took an advantage of some of the great deals this weekend and I am going for round two today. I can't help myself since a lot of the sales are extended to today as well. Gap is 50% off the whole store and that is my wheelhouse! However, I just placed my second order on Marley Lilly as well AND today is the last day you can get a FREE blanket scarf!
How cute are these? I'm slightly obsessed with blanket scarfs so I can not wait for mine to arrive! Since rain and ice have hit Oklahoma this weekend I am positive I will be wearing mine non-stop as soon as the mailman drops it off. You can choose from one of the three with any one hundred dollar purchase. Hurry because this great deal ends today!
I originally thought I would gift my scarf but you know...one gift for them, one for me! I just don't think I will be able to give it up, too cute! Now, go Christmas shop on Marley Lilly and its a win win! You can find some very cute monogrammed ML gift ideas on my post here if you missed it.
Happy shopping y'all, have a great rest of the weekend!

Marley Lilly Feature - Perfect Thanksgiving Day Outfit

One of my favorite things in life is monogrammed accessories so it comes as no surprise that one of my favorite online boutiques is Marley Lilly. They have a huge line of adorable monogrammed apparel and accessories, every southern girl's dream! It's not very often that you don't find me wearing some accessory with my monogram on it. Whether it be my classic monogrammed gold necklace that is a staple in my wardrobe or even just my Marley Lilly monogrammed tassel key chain
So I was very excited when I found the cutest Marley Lilly package waiting on my front porch last week. I tore into the perfectly green and pink package to find two more great accessories to add to my monogrammed collection. ML sent me this classic black leather cross body clutch with a tan monogram and a gold monogrammed ball bracelet. I have to say both are perfectly my style, thank you Marley Lilly! I already own two of the leather cross body Marley clutches and I'm excited to have black as I wear black more than another other color and with tan tied in it is perfect! The clutches are my go to bag to carry for all football games and concerts. So easy to throw on for a small tote but yet so fashionable to finish off any outfit. 

I paired both with a simple mustard colored dress and light cardigan for a casual thanksgiving work lunch this week. As you can see I picked the windiest day in Oklahoma to wear a dress and a hat and it was somewhat difficult to get these snaps in before the lunch but that is a typical Oklahoma day for you. I love wearing mustard yellow in the fall and I'm wondering how far I can push it into December...what do you guys think? I'm thinking not too far, bummer!

I plan on wearing the gold ball bracelet tomorrow to accessorize my Thanksgiving outfit which includes this poncho (similar here) which I am very excited about! It is so comfy and will hide the one too many pieces of pumpkin pie I plan on having.
You guys are in luck because if you are obsessed with blanket scarfs like me you can score one now for FREE with any one hundred dollar purchase on Marley Lilly until Saturday! Their products are very durable and great quality. I have never had an issue with any of my Marley Lilly products and have always been completely satisfied. So get to Christmas shopping and snatch a free blanket scarf for yourself or as another gift!
I wish you all the happiest, most fun Thanksgiving holiday! I am so very thankful for all of you, for reading my blog and for all of your sweet comments. Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

The Time Is Now

This week at Life.Church we began a new series on a study of the book of Haggai. I absolutely loved it with all of my heart and could not wait to jump back on this space of mine to share with y'all. I might be a little partial but my pastor Craig Groeschel brings it every week but this week he was really right on point, thanks God for that timing!

The Hard Right... 

Craig started the message out with a little background on Haggai. In 587 BC, King Nebuchadnezzar and his army crushed the Southern kingdom of Judah destroying the temple. The Jews were then taken into captivity for decades. Then in 538 BC, about 50,000 people were allowed to travel back to Jerusalem, the capital of Judah, to rebuild the temple. However these people said the time wasn't right. This is what our Lord says: "These people say, 'The time has not yet come to rebuild the Lord's house." Haggai 1:2 I mean excuse me?! These people just decided that it wasn't the right time for them despite it being the Lord's house and isn't it about his timing not "these people's"? These were my first thoughts then the more I thought about it my thoughts turned into...this is exactly how I can be. I am one of "these people". I really must realize that it's not about my timing its about God's.

"Choose the hard right over the easy wrong." This is definitely a statement that is weighing heavy on my mind and heart this week. As soon as Craig said it I thought I knew exactly what it meant for my life then the more I thought about it I'm afraid I am interrupting it wrongly. I'm praying for specific clarification from God. I find this happens more often than not...God can I please just get a flowchart of some sort?! Wouldn't that be wonderful? 

Then the word of the Lord came through the prophet Haggai: "Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?" Now this is what the Lord says "Give careful thought to your ways." Haggai 1:3-5 (apparently a paneled house is a very expensive, the best of the best of houses then.)

Are you putting your own comfort ahead of his calling? I know personally I can think of specific situations where I felt the nudge from God to take a lead in an area of my own life and I chalk it up to be nerves and have decided "It just isn't the right time". When I know God is calling me and I'm letting the phone ring and ring...hoping it goes to voicemail or maybe he'll just send a text. (Maybe the text will include the flowchart!) I'm not talking about a call to be a full time missionary in a third world country. God has reassured me that I just will go on trips but I'm not to go full time. Man, it's like he knows me or something...as if I won't survive. All jokes aside...

Obedience is my responsibility and the outcome is God's. Do you feel like you are suppose to reach 
out to someone that hurt you? But what if they hurt you again? You are not responsible for the outcome just the obedience. I have no idea what the blessings of God are or how amazing they will be on the other side of obedience but I'm ready to find out! 

"You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. you earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it." Haggai 1:6

Did you just get a raise or pay off a large amount of debt but yet you still feel like you don't have enough? What about switching out our summer wardrobes for our winter ones? I mean, we have enough clothes to SWITCH out our wardrobes but yet we don't have enough...hits home for me. Maybe I'm not receiving my flowchart because God is wanting to send me a blank spreadsheet with the single word contentment on it instead. 

Are you consumed with yourself instead of with God? "Give careful thought to your ways. Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored." says the Lord. Haggai 1:7-8

The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing. Are you putting your house above God's house? I know God told me to choose the hard right over the easy wrong on Sunday and the time is now. So, this week I am praying no longer for that flowchart but for unfinished business in my life and that I will honor God and his timing rather than my own understanding...the hard right.

I'm telling y'all this was a great message and if you are interested in listening you can find it here at Life.Church. Please let me know if there is a way I can pray for you, shoot me an email or leave a comment.
