I don't think I've ever done a "fashion post" ... but my girls and I have been getting some great deals on used items, I just can't help but show some off:

Skirt from NY & Co ($6); Shirt from The Gap ($2); and Jaket from H&M ($5)
Move over Stacy & Clinton! Who needs a $5000 shopping card?!?

This is For You, Mom

You [mothers] are the real builders of the nation wherever you live, for you have created homes of strength and peace and security. These become the very sinew of any nation.”
Gordon B. Hinckley, “Women of the Church,” Ensign, Nov 1996, 67

"... dear Mother, all flowers remind me of you ..." (Children's Songbook p202)
I love you Mom.

Ok - it's not even COOL outside yet, but it feels like autumn to me. So today I had soup for lunch:

Does it look good? or no? Regardless, it was DELISH! Kale, carrots, barley, quinoa, cabbage, corn ... YUM.

Yes, it hit 100 degrees today. But it was fun to pretend it was fall for a day!

Howdy-Hey Bloggers! It's been so long ... my life has been absolutely crazy. Good crazy, and crazy crazy. Many of you know what I mean. So some personal thoughts:
* life is about conquering trials and conquering ourselves (thought courtesy of Heber Kapp)
* we are meant to be happy and find joy in life
* peace and joy can exist at the same time as trials

So, since I last posted, my girls and I spent an evening creating inspiration boards. It was FUN! Since taking the picture above I've added a few things to my board. My husband hung the board in the kitchen (yes ... you guessed right - that's where I spend most of my time!) and I see it often. Every day, several times a day, I'm reminded of my dreams and my ambitions. Every day I am inspired by it.

What keeps you inspired?
