Friday Lovlies + Co-Hosting with Friday’s Fab Favorites

Surprise! The Co-hosting day is here! Scroll to the end of the post to link-up or go here. I’m so excited because this is the first time that I have had the opportunity to participate in a co-host on my blog. Grateful to Lauren at Style Elixir for this opportunity. And yes, it’s still Friday so I’m going to post my favorites this week. It’s been a little crazy hectic but in a good way. I started the Spring Style Me Challenge this week. It was put together by Alison at Get Your Pretty On. If you didn’t participate don’t fret because I think there is one coming up for summer and I would highly recommend it to you!

So here’s my top five!

1.) The challenge of course! Through Alison’s coaching I have been encouraged to wear a few things differently. Here’s what I wore this week as renditions of the outfit challenges. Here’s what I wore.

2.) Over at Greater than Rubies, Caitlin posted this jewel about the capsule wardrobe. Yes, I’m still seeking to purge but I have found myself in a little rut. I’m struggling with what I should keep and what I should part with at this point. I’m having a little fear of letting things go, only to realize I made a mistake. Did I mention that I’m still a little bit of a perfectionist? Probably not! Now you know…

3.) Here’s another great link! Are you a shoe-a-holic? Are you female? If you answered YES & YES you probably would appreciate this post from Willfully Elegant. Shoes & shoes, gotta have ’em ladies. Anyway, it’s a great read with awesome pics of the top 10 must haves. I also loved the post Mustard the Courage.

4.) Last week I posted about my friends in my hometown and their new grandson. If you missed it, you can read it here. Little Liam was about to get released but…Here’s what his mom said today.

Well, we are here for another 7 days. Mitch and I were in the middle of getting everything done for discharge for Liam. We didn’t tell anybody we were coming home today so we could surprise everyone.. Unfortunately, Liam had a seizure in the middle of it all. Although, we are very, very THANKFUL it happened here and not at home.. It’s very frustrating, but we have a great team here so we know we see Forest City in the future soon and Iowa City behind us. ~ As you can see, they are still in need of your prayers!

5.) Yes, I do love clothes + fashion + make-up & all that jazz, but that is not my life. Those are simply things I enjoy while I’m here on this planet. What truly matters to me is more on the relational level. People matter! My faith matters! My family, my friends, my faith all revolve around relationships. As today is Good Friday, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the importance of this day. It’s not #5 because it is the least in my eyes but rather because Good Friday is a day in which Jesus Christ made himself the least in order to become great. It’s easy to overlook the least. As I watched {yet again} the movie The Help this week, I was reminded of the beauty of the least. Minnie & Abilene were the some of the least yet their strong relationships and their courage made them strong. Those beautiful ladies “the help” were overlooked and mistreated but their courage made them great. Courage, breathe it, soak it in, live it. It takes courage to really live.
