B&W(Our Project 52, #18)

I know it has been a minute since we last chatted and so much has happened.  I hope this post finds you all well and looking forward to celebrating the Moms in your life or being celebrated yourself??  I am just popping by to share a little Black and White photo as part of the Photography challenge I am participating in.   Do you remember that one? LOL.  I have many things I would love to chat about and have missed you all terribly.  I look forward to being here soon.  Have a wonderful weekend and please enjoy the photo!

Spring Break/Holy Week




It is Spring Break and of course Holy Week as we draw closer to Easter Sunday.
I know that it is a weighty concept to think that a man just like you and me chose to lay his life down for us, those that acknowledge him and those that don't. 
 I'm just glad the story does not end there.

  We have enjoyed a few days of camping with friends, s'mores, laughing, a birthday, chores ( I finally tackled that fridge) track practice, and of course sleeping in and not hitting a snooze button.  This break is exactly what we all needed to chill and regroup from our big, full lives!!  I am so grateful to all of you that take time to read, comment, follow, etc. my little blog here. 

 I certainly hope that you enjoy a beautiful weekend with your family and loved ones.
  
Luke 23: 44-46 
It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining.  And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.  Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last.

#Our Project 52/ #9 In My Cup






**Disclaimer** photography is not only a skill, but an artform.  Hat tip to LaShawn and many other photographers for making it "look" easy!

It was difficult holding the camera steady and pouring the creamer.  





Ah, Cheers!



What's in my cup is usually water, after I have my morning coffee.  I really like coffee, ok maybe I love coffee, but not on the expert level, but more of a taste, comfort level.  I remember my first time drinking coffee as a means to bond with fellow early birds at work, it sort of became a "thing" before the day's madness commenced.  From what I remembered the coffee we drank at work was not really that great!!  This was long before I was introduced to that famous chain's coffee.  Even now it's not the actual coffee taste per se, but the coffee mixed with cream as I mentioned a few posts ago.  I'm not even too picky about the coffee I drink.  I have had some wonderful gas station...gasp...coffee and the coffee I favor now I buy at the grocer or mass retailers.  The bottom line is that hot, creamy, coffee in a pretty mug is just a little treat that I start the day with.  
What's in your cup?
Happy Weekend!

Monday Still Happens Around Here



Whew, it's been a rainy few weeks here in my little corner of the earth and I am ok with that.  My only observation is that I can not go out and run like I would want to. However, I am happy to share that I am able to participate in the wildly popular Two Bird's link up this week.  You all, this is such a fun time that I have missed for the last couple of weeks, er months! Ok, in reality it is more like a year!! Can you believe that?  I guess since I still comment and communicate with Megan and Nora weekly it has not seemed like a year since I posted to Inspiration Monday!!  I hope to pick up where I left off with my post this week.  My outfit is a combo of all discount items, with a few special accessories, my new favorite red lip, and growing hair!  I don't know about you, but I am over or maybe too lazy to list where all the items are from, so I will link my treasured items and affordable lip color.
 Fair enough??

Where I Stand/#Our Project 52, #8






There really are not any words that can add anything to this photo.
  It speaks volumes on its own.
If you are keeping track we are now in week 8 heading in to 9.

Mardi Gras Style


This weekend we shared Valentine's treats with the kids, went to soccer games, track practice, cleaned house, went to church, band rehearsal and a Mardi Gras themed party!  This was a particularly fun evening for us since both of our families hail from Texas and Louisiana where Mardi Gras is king, see what I did here?  We shared King Cake among other delicacies with our neighbors.  I was a bit disappointed to not get a slice of the cake with the baby in it!  Oh well, I guess there is always next time?
 Did you celebrate Valentine's Day or Mardi Gras?

 If so, what are your favorite things about either?





Boyfriend blazer, sparkle tank, thrifted Boyfriend jeans, gifted booties, earned hostess jewels here
