Plan With Me…


Hello lovelies! Today I’m going to be talking about how I plan my week.

I use a weekly planner from Barnes & Noble. These have proven to be my favorite time and time again! I recommend the hard cover planners with the page corners that tear out so you don’t lose your place.

I also use the Pilot G2 gel pens to write with in my planner and color coordinate my events!

Let’s get into how I plan my week!

Every Sunday I open my planner and check to make sure that everything from the previous week has been accomplished and crossed off.

Since my planner has a purple background, I use my purple pen to write down my everyday personal events! This category includes date nights, family events, doctor appointments, etc.

At the beginning of every school semester I assign each class that I’m taking a certain color pen. As I write down assignments for the week, I am able to keep track of which class is which because of their color! I’ve found color coordinating my planner to be extremely helpful.

Lastly, I write down anything that I need to remember for the week in my reminders/notes section.

As the week goes by I cross off my accomplishments and completed events with a black pen.

This has been the planning method that makes me feel the most prepared and the least stressed!

What do you all do to plan your week? I’d love to hear about it- leave it in the comments below!πŸ“š

My First Bachelorette Party…

My 1stBacheloretteParty

Hello, lovelies! I’m sorry I didn’t post last Sunday like I normally do… I was enjoying my first bachelorette party!πŸŽ‰

In my masters program, we have a cohort of about 9 girls and 3 guys. Well out of us 9 girls, 4 of us are getting married! WOO! And my (already married) super thoughtful classmates decided to host a bachelorette weekend for us soon-to-be brides.πŸ‘°πŸΌ

The game plan was to go “glamping”. Glamping is glamorous camping… A.K.A. air conditioning!!! But you know, sometimes game plans don’t always go as planned. And when life gives you lemons- you make lemonade.πŸ‹

Friday Night we hauled the RV out to the campsite and hooked it all up. We were putting all our stuff inside when we realized the air conditioning was not working?! And it was HOT outside. All of us girls grilled out burgers while we called some people to check out the camper. No one could figure out what was wrong with it. We ate dinner at the campsite and then ultimately decided to go back to the house and continue the party “slumber party style”!


I have to tell you that I was not disappointed about this because I have not had a slumber party in A LONG TIME! We lounged around, drank wine, played some girly board games, and ate tons of food. It was a successful night.


Saturday we woke up and took our time getting ready. The hosts of the party got us the cutest monogrammed t-shirts (brides wore white and everyone else wore black), they also made us wine glasses with our new last names on them, and homemade bug spray! It was all so cute and super appropriate for our weekend festivities.

After we got ready we headed out to lunch. We ate at O’Charley’s and then made our way to this really cool wine festival that was in town. We got to sample tons of different wines and we even took a tour of the cellars to see how it was all made.🍷


When we went got back to the house Saturday evening, I packed my stuff up and headed home.

It was a whirlwind of a weekend, but I had a blast. I am so lucky to have such thoughtful and kind women in my life. Thank you ladies for throwing a bachelorette weekend I’ll never forget!πŸ’˜πŸ’πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ

Benefits of Modesty…

NOT USED (29).png

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to share a little bit of insight on my experience with modesty.

I’m going to be completely transparent, here… because no one is perfect. I STILL FALL SHORT!

As a young high school girl, I chose to dress less modest than I should have. I was becoming a woman and trying to figure out who I was. The pressure of fitting in and wearing what was trending was beyond real.

When I graduated from high school my relationship really grew with the Lord. I have always been a Christian, but something changed inside of me (for the better) and since then my life has been different- in the best possible way.

As I actively walked with the Lord, my perspective on things changed. The media I watched, the music I listened to, and even the clothes I wore…

In no way am I trying to shame anyone or point fingers and judge. That is not my job.

I write faith based blogs to share my own personal experiences, and to connect with others who may be touched by these same topics! With that being said, lets get into the main points!πŸ‘πŸΌ

Below are some benefits (according to me) of dressing modestly:

You save money!

Most things that are currently trendy (especially now that it’s summer) are not very modest. And because it’s trending, that means it is in high demand, which means: prices go up.πŸ’°

You are more comfortable!

Not having to pull your shorts down, or pull your top up and then pull it back down… ugh, it even sounds exhausting.πŸ˜“

You feel more confident!

A lot of people may rebuttal this statement, because women nowadays are praised to wear less and less. However I believe that you can still be beautiful and feel sexy, while being modest. FACTS! Our bodies are meant to be shared with our husbands/wives. Save your less-clothed confidence for the bedroom!πŸ˜‰

You make better impressions!

No one wants to run into their boss at the grocery store wearing a revealing outfit…. Awkward. ‘Nuff said.😳

You respect yourself, your spouse, and YOUR GOD!

I mean if this point isn’t the icing on the cake, then I don’t know what is!? I am not an object to be gawked at by random men. I am a child of God and I am worth more than that. Know your worth… and then add tax.πŸ’–


What are some of your favorite modest styles for summer 2018?!πŸ‘—
