– Yesterday. Many people don’t know this, but my sister (who owns an insurance agency- Accurate Insurance) and I both have our offices in the same building. However, we never really see each other at work since most of my stops and meetings happen on the weekends and evenings, whereas she’s there during business house. Yesterday though, I had two afternoon meetings and about an hour to spare in between them. So I called my sister, we met in the lobby, and quickly hopped in the car to make a quick trip to Yogurt Mountain in Coconut Point. I’ve got to say, it felt like high school days where you would meet up with your best friend and walk to the cafeteria together for lunch. And, I loved every second of it.

*Oh, and for the record, our yogurt cups did *not* look like this. Let’s just say, we probably should have run back to our offices after we devoured our delicious treat. 🙂

-Crewcuts…at none other than Miromar Outlet!! Crewcuts is one of the only stores that my daughter and I can agree on for clothes. Kyla is 7 and honestly, I’m not a huge fan of the teeny bopper clothes they seem to have almost everywhere. I just love the classic, yet fashionable style crewcuts produces for the little ones. Or, maybe it’s just that their website and catalog make me all giddy seeing seeing most amazing and wonderfully styled photoshoots most photogs would dream of doing. Seriously, just look at some of these pictures. LOVE.

It’s almost spring, which means Easter is around the corner, so why not throw in some bunnies with your photoshoot?! I am just a sucker for awesome details….

– Me, Myself & Lies- A Thought Closet Makeover. We just started this bible study last week at Illuminate and it’s rocking my world. It’s unlike any other study I’ve done and I’m just learning so much about how God want’s me to see ME. We, as humans and as sinners consistently tend to view ourselves negatively- I’m fat, I’m ugly, I’m not good enough, I’m an idiot, etc. Although we may not always say it out loud, it could possibly be the soundtrack playing over and over in our head, which is really just as bad. This is not how God views us and how awful that we would view His creation with such ugliness and negatively, but rather with honesty and truth. I can already see a difference in my self-talk and I am so excited for the changes in my life over the next few weeks.

– This past week was great and I was so grateful and blessed to meet with so many amazing couples. It was a crazy busy week but I had so much fun getting to know and talk to all of the brides and grooms. It’s going to be an amazing year…as well as an amazing 2012! Sidenote: I always think it’s awesome how many of the guys are highly involved and opinionated with this wedding planning process, not leaving it all up to the bride to figure out and decide on their own. Great job guys!  Anyway, these meetings were definitely the highlight of my week. I know I say it all the darn time, but I feel so blessed I get to have a job that I love as much as I do.

Have a great weekend!!

    I looooove this post for so many reasons! I love that my sister can bring me a cold diet coke when I am craving it most (3pm) and we get to head out for a Yogurt Mountain break before the end of the day! What a treat!!!! I am so happy you are enjoying the Bible study… but a little uneasy about the Crewcuts being so close.
    Love you!
