1. Embracing St. Patrick's Day with a green shirt (it's greener in real life than this picture) that my friend Liz brought me all the way from Thailand.
2. First time laying by the pool this season.  I was probably unreasonably excited about it.
3. Pink champagne in a pretty glass. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself.
4. Little sister is home for spring break! Loved spending time with family this week.
5. My roomie gave a wonderful sermon last weekend on the temptation we feel to try to control everything in our lives.  Her mantra for us: Trust God, Trust People, Trust Your Process. Words to live by for sure.
How was your week?


  1. That top is cute! And #3 reminded me of this gem:

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I love that top!! So stinking cute, and what a story behind it! Yay for laying out too! After all the beautiful weather we've had this week I decided to take my kids on a walk around our neighborhood and I couldn't believe how cold it was! Thanks, Texas, for that. Haha

    1. Thanks, Leigh! = ) I know-- last weekend was so nice, and I'm in total denial that it's been so cold this week... no time by the pool this weekend!

  3. That top is just gorgeous! I wish that the weather here was more accommodating to sleeveless shirts right now. But in Michigan, we're just getting more and more snow lately. :/
    I stopped by from the I Love My Post Blog Hop and am following via GFC. I'd love it if you stopped by my blog as well. :)
    Have a glorious weekend!

    1. Thanks, Danielle! The warm weather here took a dip back down this week, but we haven't had snow.. I've seen lots of pictures of it posted by my Northern friends! Stay warm!
