Why is it so hard to motivate myself to leave the house when it’s cold? Seriously, I look outside and I’m like “meh, I don’t really need to go anywhere.” Can’t tell if it’s laziness, or just my introvertness coming out. So a few times I made up reasons to leave the house just because I knew it was good for us/me to do so.
One time last week my man told me to go to Target alone after dinner. Don’t have to tell me twice! And I had a gift card saved from Christmas for such an occasion. (A giftcard that lasts me longer than 2 weeks is a major act of self-control…just sayin’.) So I bought a teal purse. I needed some color for these gray January/February days (and since I purchased my purse with a gift card, I’m not counting it against my limited shopping goals. I did buy three items in the month of January: a dress on Zulily, a leopard print scarf on Jane.com and a mini bauble necklace on Jane.com. Yep I exceeded my one item goal.) So here we go…
Last Wednesday evening going to Target alone…I wore something to “test” my potential new purse out.
Saturday my man had meetings at church all day, so I took the kids to the mall, we practically never do that. I was on a mission to find some colored skinny jeans, I knew the kids would love to weigh in on which color I chose…and they did 🙂
So the kids decided on red skinnies for me. We had some friends over Saturday evening, so I wore the new pants.
Superbowl Sunday. We own no sports team paraphernalia. Well ok, we both own WSU Cougars ball caps…that’s it. But we thought it important to display our Washington State pride and wear Seahawks colors. We have always been proud to live in Washington…and even though we aren’t “fans”, we are very proud of the Seahawks and the glory Jesus got because of some of the players’ outspokenness about their relationships with Him…way to go guys. Jesus is better then the Superbowl 🙂
Hehe, found that on Pinterest 😀
Tuesday was Joy in the Morning at church. Love being with other ladies who love the Lord, discussing His Word, worshiping, and a chance to get out of the house 🙂
