About the Active Living Challenge

The #ActiveLivingChallenge with Lorna Jane is an Instagram/Twitter challenge hosted by Fit Approach to celebrate #BlogFest. This is an opportunity for participants to share what active living means to them. Participants are encouraged to be creative with their pictures and share them wit friends and family.

#ActiveLivingChallenge with #LornaJane and #FitApproachParticipants are asked to post pictures of themselves that reflect that day’s inspiration. And, at the end of each week, write a reflective post on that week’s challenges.

The contest runs from 4~24 August 2014. The grand prize winner of the challenge will receive $500 to shop at #LornaJane.

You can see other participants’ pictures by checking out the hashtags #ActiveLivingChallenge, #FitApproach, or #LornaJane.

Happy Fist Bump Friday

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I like to do a little something called “Fist Bump Friday”, where I encourage my friends to share something that made them happy during the week. Sometimes we get so bogged down with life and the crazy that comes with it that we forget to acknowledge the good things. So I thought it’d be fun if we all shared and celebrated together.

I don’t know what we were all laughing at but I guess it was pretty funny.

I love you guys. Peace, blessings, and God’s protection as you go out into the world.

This week I’m happy that my family humored me and allowed me to take a picture of us all together. This week marks the close of an old chapter in our lives and the beginning of a new one:

  • Miss 20 soon to be 21 is moving back to campus, where she’ll begin her Senior year
  • Miss 19 is moving on campus to begin her Freshmen year
  • Mr. 19 is moving on campus to begin his Freshmen year
  • Miss 17 began her Senior year of high school yesterday
  • The Hubs is looking for an RV so we can see the U.S. from the comfort of our mobile living room

So please, share your good news in the comments below. Remember, it doesn’t have to be big or earth shattering. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me.

The Thrifted Coral Lace Dress

Coral Lace Dress and Sseko Sandals {Living Outside the Stacks}

Happy Wednesday! I hope y’all are having a fabulous week. This is my last week with all of my kids at home. big ugly cry Three of my kids will be moving into the dorms this weekend and in to next week. And my youngest starts her senior year of high school tomorrow. so not ready  I remember thinking when they were little that they were never gonna grow up, now I’m thinking how did they grow up so fast? But grow they do, so if you have littles at home, treasure them. Hug them. If your daughter want to wear jeans and a tutu to the grocery store, let her… Mine wore angel wings. If your son thinks headbutting you is an appropriate display of affection, teach him to fist bump… Yeah, mine did that.

So before I start weeping at my desk, let’s get to the dress. I picked this up at one of the local thrift stores for $6.99. Tags still attached. Normally, I’d wear this with jeans because of the shorter length but I decided to be brave and pair it with my Sseko sandals and call it a day. The dress is a really cute coral color with an attached slip that’s a couple of shades lighter so that it gives an almost nude allusion. The back, which I wish I’d taken a picture of, has a really cute exposed zipper which I LOVE LOVE LOVE! Normally, I’m not a big fan of lace, it tends to be stiff and a bit itchy, but this is stretchy and soft. And when fall comes, I can so pair it with a scarf, leggings, and boots. Win!

So what’s going on in your world?
