Some of them hit pretty close to my hometown of Cushing. My Facebook was blowing up with people talking about the fires and how close they were getting to town. Some friends and family members were told to evacuate. As far as I know, everyone is ok, but it was pretty heartbreaking and scary.
Please keep the firefighters who I am sure are exhausted in your prayers. Also, please for the people who weren’t so lucky to have a home to come back to. Oh! Prayers for desperate needed rain and cooler temperatures would also be very much appreciated!
113 degrees is too hot!! Ugh… is it Fall yet? Speaking of hot, I went shopping this weekend for the tax-free weekend and even though it’s hotter than-all-get-out outside, somehow looking at sweaters and Fall clothes that are out suddenly made me feel cool and excited for the fall/winter. I would prefer cold and snow any day over the summer.
Side Note: I bought these shoes this weekend. I kind of love them! 🙂
I love every single one of these outfits. I just love dressing up with color. I actually can dress pretty cute. Believe it or not I get a lot of compliment on my outfits… I have thought about actually documenting them in this blog and posting outfit pictures but it’s kind of hard to get good pictures when you live alone. Believe me I have tried!
Anybody out there have any tips on how to take good self-portrait pictures??
Hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving. Hope you got to spend Thanksgiving with loved ones and eat a ton of good food!
Things I am thankful for:
That I have a job
That I have live in a great nation
Thankful for my body that does all kinds of miraculous things
Thankful that I have a great God who is mighty and loving
That’s just a little bit of the things I am thankful for:
Today I also got FREE Starbucks… just b/c they said it took too long in the drive-thru. I am pretty thankful for that too. 🙂
Remember: be thankful everyday!!
Here is a Homemade Apple pie I made – with a cinnamon roll swirl crust: (guess my Family Consumer Science (aka: Home Ec) degree wasn’t a waste – just b/c I can’t find a job teaching it doesn’t mean I can’t use it! Ha!
I do wish I would have a taken a picture of the crust it really was amazing.
Also… my cousin does hair and as payment for watching her kids last night while she got her Black Friday shopping on… She did my hair this morning:
I kind of love it… P.S. Those are extensions (because my hair is thin and fine and I have dreamed of long thick hair my whole life.) Don’t tell anyone 🙂
Also – The extensions are not as red in the picture… it really does blend better.
