Happy Fist Bump Friday

by Daenel

#FistBumpFriday {Living Outside the Stacks}

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.

This week I’m happy that my picture was selected to be the header for my 52 Project group for the week. You can see the original picture here and see it as a header here.

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.

This week I’m happy that I ran 2.65 miles without stopping. That’s the first time I’ve ever run that far without taking a break. I’m totally gonna run the full 5K NONSTOP! By the way, race day is 28 June. So excited!

Now to share some links I think you’ll like:

Weekend Fun {Saturday Share}

by Daenel

Teal Cardi Teal and Brown Floral Skirt Mustard Tights {Shoe Style Saturday}

The hubs and I went on an impromptu date last night to Starbucks for some coffee. The hubs always gets a plain coffee. Drives me insane. I usually get one of the seasonal flavors, last night it was a Salted Caramel Mocha. While we were sitting in the parking lot we decided to go see what was playing at the theater; we ended up seeing “This is 40″.  That movie was alternately hilarious and sobering. Honestly, it was quite possibly one of the most realistic portrayals of what happens to individuals and couples as they see middle age staring them in the face. If you do go to see it, I have to warn you, there is a lot of vulgar language. And I do I mean a lot.

I was also able to catch up on some blog reading this week and thought I’d share some of my favorite posts with you:

  • Easy 4 Ingredient Thumbprint Cookies {Mama Dweeb} ~ Annie is making cookie baking so easy for me this year.  Four ingredient cookies? Yes, please. And they’re four ingredients that you probably already have in your cupboard.
  • Last Minute Gift Making Ideas {Oh, Sweet Joy!} ~ I’m the queen of procrastination. Also I’m not very good at picking out gifts for people. Are you the same way? Well, Kim shared 5 tutorials for some really cute last minute gifts that’ll leave establish you as the chicest gifter of all.
  • Macadamia Nut Bark  {Kleinworth & Co.} ~ Gina shared a recipe for Macadamia Nut Bark that’ll make your mouth water just from looking at the pictures. This year the kids and I plan to spend Christmas Eve baking cookies, I’m hoping to give these a whirl.
  • Molly {What I Wore 2Day} ~ I’ve always been told that I have a quirky fashion sense, but Kasmira takes it to a whole new level. I just love the way she mixes patterns and color. You can tell she has a lot of fun with her clothes. And, um, can I mention how much I heart her Miz Mooz Boots?
  • Spray Painted Twigmas Tree {Five Days… 5 Ways} ~ Raise your hand if your house doesn’t have any Christmas decorations up yet. Oh, it’s just me? Well then, I think it’s a little late to start decorating for Christmas now but I do need to decorate so my house can look more, um, finished. And these painted twigs by Abbie are absolutely perfect not just for Christmas but for filling in empty corners any time of the year.

How was your weekend?

Brown Oxfords {Shoe Style Saturday}

by Daenel

This is a repost and a link up with Passion for Fashion which is hosted by Lena B. from Lena B, Actually and Beth from Through the Eyes of the Mrs.

Happy Saturday! I hope all is going well in your neck of the woods. We’ve been having mad crazy storms all week long. Seriously, I never knew the sky could go from bright and sunny to dark and gloomy so quickly. In fact, we were without power for a couple of hours last night. And fearing the power wouldn’t come back on, the family and I ate ice cream by candle light. We couldn’t have all that ice cream melt. And if you eat ice cream by candle light it doesn’t count, right? Right?

Brown Oxfords, Boscov’s

I’ve decided to change Shoe Style Saturday up a bit and use this space as an opportunity to share some of my favorite posts from my internet travels this week. Please go visit and share some comment love, I’m sure they’d appreciate it:

  1. A Stylish Little Lady ~ When the hubs and I got married, we didn’t have a wedding. It was the ol’  Justice of the Peace for us (we were both in the Army, family and friends too far away, etc). This has always been one of our biggest regrets and now life has gotten in the way… But if I were going to plan a wedding, I’d want it to be very similar to what Chandra is planning. It’s gonna be beautiful!
  2. Coffee and a Book Chick ~ Natalie is a serious book lover and as a librarian, I can’t help but to love that. And with Banned Books Week just around the corner, I was happy to see that Natalie and a few other bloggers will be reading and reviewing banned books to celebrate the right to read. Side note: Natalie also hosts some crazy cool read~alongs, so if you’re a book lover, definitely check her out.
  3. Gigi Marie the Chic Homeschool Mama ~ Are you ready to drool on your keyboard? Then take a gander at Gina’s recipe for Baby Back Ribs. Seriously, you’ll never see a more nom worthy photo or easy to follow recipe. Really, her blog is worth a visit just for the photos.
  4. Rediscovering Domesticity ~ Audra is so inspirational and I love her post about evicting Bill Nye from her family’s life. She confronted his anti~creationist stance with all the love, patience and gentleness of a true defender of the faith.
