Fall Style Challenge - Banner Image 2

Yay! Yay! Yay! It’s Friday! I love Friday’s in the fall..there’s nothing quite like them, yes?? Fall is secretly my favorite season because it means football games, riding boots and candy corn! Three of my very, very, most FAVORITE things! Another one of my FAVORITE things today just so happens to be Alison’s Fall Style Me Pretty Challenge. I’m admitting it right now- THIS MAKES ME GIDDY! I was introduced to Alison by her blog,…

This Mom’s One Direction concert experience!

One Direction

  Guess what??!!! On Tuesday night my two girls, one of their friends and I went to the One Direction concert at the BOK center in my hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was seriously one of the most energizing, fun, and happiest concerts that I’ve ever been too. We were able to score tickets on the 2nd row right in front of the stage! To top it off, there were 5 seats on the front…

Beauty | The Day It Happened


I was in a huge hurry but had to get one last thing before leaving the mall the day it happened. I needed to run in to Sephora to get some Dr. Jarts Black Label Detox BB creme. I LOVE this stuff. It’s great to wear during the week when I really don’t want to put a lot of make-up on. I literally apply it the way I do moisturizer. Easy peasy! It’s lightweight but yet…

Crazy Over Concealer

crazy over concealer

Today I’m going to talk about concealer, one of my favorite beauty products ever! Like foundation, concealer is a very personal and individual thing. It has to be perfect for your skin in order to work for you. A couple a months ago I started the journey on finding the perfect one. I don’t use all of these products everyday, it depends on the condition of my under-eye circles and puffiness on that particular day…

Rock that Camo | One Pant, Four Ways

Camo Casual

Last year when I noticed camouflage starting to pop back up into women’s fashion I wasn’t sure what to think. Even though I love fashion and style, just because something is trendy doesn’t mean I will wear it. Sometimes I’m on to a trend the minute I see it, other times it takes a while for me to warm up. Camouflage is one of those trends…it took me a while. In fact, I didn’t get excited…



Happy Thursday my lovelies!! Remember when I talked about these cute burgundy drapey pants? I wore them on Sunday for the first time and OH MY. They are literally the MOST COMFORTABLE pants I own. No lie. I just can’t say enough about these pants.  I paired them with my Dream tee that I ordered from my church. It is our 2014 women’s conference theme tee. Can you guess what the name of our conference…

Reckless Abandon

I love the story of Ruth. If she were here today, I would definitely want her as a close friend. It’s a pretty safe bet I’d be all up on her doorstep with some Cookiedoodle Cookies. Seriously..the best cookies in the Tulsa area. Sorry for that Shannon-ism. On to my story. One of my favorite scriptures of the Bible is found in the book named after Ruth.  In fact, they are her own words: But Ruth…

Bashful, Burgundy and a Link-Up!


Well hello there!  😉 I know i’ve been a bit MIA lately. Honestly, I’ve been bashful. I have all these blogging ideas but find I am bashful about actually putting them on paper. Have you ever had those moments where you’re scared to death to do something that you know you should do? Ugh it can be so maddening. I got so many positive responses from my last post. Thank you guys so much for…

Never let go & the 50 pound heart

Never let go

My heart has been heavy lately and I can’t quite put my finger on why. I cherish my mornings so much. I am a true morning person. I wake up most mornings around 5:30. 6:00 at the latest. I love it when my house is completely silent and my husband and 2 girls are peacefully sleeping. It is the time when I pray, read my bible and just think. Lately, I have found myself weeping…
