Musical Monday: Peace

Anyone who's been in a relationship before knows you have those days where you just can't seem to get along. The Mister and I are pretty normal in that regard.


Luckily, when you have a hard-to-get-along kind of day, you can always wake up the next morning and have a completely new day.

Weekly Round-Up 7.20.14

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Welcome to the Weekly Round-Up linky party, hosted by me and Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos.

This party is all about sharing those fabulous blogs that you've read through the week and promote our blogger community. I hope it will help you use this party to find new blogs to read and build some new blogger friendships.

So, here are the rules:

1. Grab the button.
2. Write a little list of your favorite reads this week and why.
3. Link up below and go find some fabulous new ladies to be friends with.

That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. With the heat that is July in South Carolina, we drink a lot of water. It's fun to find new ways to dress it up, and I'm loving this recipe for strawberry, lime, cucumber and mint water.

2. This DIY Pallet Furniture is a cheap and fun way to get a new look for the patio.

3. I've just joined Fitocracy this past week, but it's a great wealth of resources on fitness and healthy living. The blog post on delaying gratification was excellent.

4. Miss Angie may be my co-host for this party, but I have share her post where she discusses coming to terms with a "friend" using her. We all deserve better, and usually the hardest part is admitting to ourselves what is happening.

5. If you're looking for something to motivate you to stick with (or start) your fitness routine in August, there's a #NOEXCUSES fitness challenge to complete 1500 minutes of workout time in the month.

I confess...

I know this post is a day late. I'm sorry. Yesterday was a big day. I hope you'll forgive me and still join the party. I'll be extending the linky a couple extra days since the post went up late.

I confess...

I started the morning with my mother-in-law....We were taking care of some official sort of things, and she felt better having some help. All I can say is God is good. I can't go into any details, but I can say that what started as a pretty stressful situation is nearly resolved in the best possible way.

I confess...

Then, the Mister alerted me to this a Facebook post from my aunt in Washington. The wildfire in their area had caused them to have to evacuate twice. They had heard that their home was burned, and my aunt was heartbroken, thinking she'd lost her house and her horses.

Well, God is good. They were informed yesterday morning, that even though they lost their barn, the horses are okay and the house was spared.
Aunt April & I at her wedding last month.

There is a still a lot of damage in that area, and many families in the community lost their homes. Please keep them in your prayers.

I confess...

Also yesterday afternoon, my best friend texted me that they were on the way to the hospital because his girlfriend's water had broken. At a little after 10 p.m., he face-timed me so that I could say hello to my goddaughter.
Y'all, meet Baby Emily. She's a big girl, weighing in at 10 lbs 1 oz. The Mister and I will be driving up tomorrow to meet her in person. I'm in love. God is good.
