I LOVE Friday's Fancies

Today's Friday's Fancies with Allison at Long Distance Loving: Winning in White!

I have a slight obsession with BCBG and if I was ridiculously rich, my closet would be mainly BCBG instead of Forever 21. I was window shopping on their site and found this fabulous white dress and immediately had to create an outfit around it. This outfit will stay in my dreams because of the pricing but isn't it beautiful?!

This is my last day at my current job! It's very bittersweet to say the least. I will miss my coworker's but I am extremely excited to begin my new job at the church. God sure has blessed me beyond measure!

Have a great weekend!

I LOVE Audio Books

I spent Memorial Day weekend with my family in Florida. Michael had a bachelor party to attend the same weekend so I was making the 6 hour drive by myself. Most of you know that I am not comfortable in the car, much less driving. I knew I needed something other than music to pass the time quickly. I'd heard about audio books but never considered one until this trip. I figured I would buy a Nicholas Sparks book because it would most definitely keep my attention. Y'all know my LOVE for Nicholas Sparks!

I went to the store and found an audio book of The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks. I haven't read it before and it was 12 hours long which was perfect because I could listen to it on the way to and from Florida. I bought the audio book and went on my way.


Immediately, I put it in my CD changer and headed to Florida. I was shocked at how quickly the time flew by. Since my mind was on the book and the road, I didn't have time to think about everything that could go wrong on my drive. It was wonderful! I highly recommend audio books for long drives. I foresee my bookshelf including many more audio books in the future!

Have you ever listened to an audio book? Did you LOVE it like I did?

LOVE, sje

ps: The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks is fantastic!

I LOVE Friday's Fancies

Today's Friday's Fancies with Allison from Long Distance Loving: Memorial Day Weekend!

Memorial Day weekend is the kickoff to summer! Living in a beach town means that I am in a bathing suit every moment my schedule and the weather allows. Below is a fun, cute, inexpensive Memorial Day beach/pool outfit.

Have a wonderful and safe holiday!

I LOVE Big News

Remember I told y'all my life has been crazy lately? It's been crazy but in a super good way. Not too long ago, I rarely had weekday plans and my weekend plans were to do whatever I wanted. Now, it seems as though my nights are filling up quickly and I have to schedule plans week's in advance. Crazy, I tell ya!

Anyway, here's the news...

Next Friday is my last day working at my current job!! I have accepted an Administrative Assistant position at my church and could not be more thrilled to be working at a place that I LOVE, surrounded by people that I LOVE.

Here's how it came about...

Some of my girlfriends and I were out to dinner and they started talking about a new admin position that was opening at our church. For some reason, I had not heard about this opening so I immediately began asking questions. I wasn't looking for another job because I genuinely LOVE where I currently work but was interested in what the admin position would entail. It sounded very similar to what I do now so it sparked my interest.

I prayed hard about the position. I prayed for God's will to be done and that He would place who He wanted in that position. I asked that He would show me clearly what He wanted for me and my life. Multiple times God clearly showed me that He wanted me at the church. I was offered the job a few weeks ago and I accepted!! I am sooooo excited!!

I am confident this is a change that God wants me to make. I am confident that He has prepared the way for me and every good and bad thing that has happened has led me to this place in my life. There is no doubt that through prayer and guidance through His word, God told me that he wants me at the church. I am so blessed to know God has me exactly where He wants me; there's no better place to be!

I'm so thankful to be a part of Seacoast Church James Island and can not wait to get started as part of the staff family! Come check it out!

I LOVE my birthday recap

28 is off to a fabulous start!

My morning began with Michael singing me "Happy Birthday" and a box of Krisby Kreme doughnuts.



After a long day of work, I came home and opened my presents. Michael gave me the Simply Vera Vera Wang Tote (similar) I've been wanting and a new bottle of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue perfume.



Next, we got dolled up and went downtown for dinner. I choose Bocci's because I really wanted Italian food and we haven't been there before. It was delicious! 



After dinner we decided to walk around the Market and really enjoy our beautiful city. We made one last stop at the Pavilion Bar before going home. The view was amazing!


After we arrived home, we ate some ice cream then headed to bed. So far...I LOVE being 28!

Thank you all for your well wishes and birthday LOVE. You sure do know how to make a girl feel special!

I LOVE Birthdays

First, my thoughts and prayers go out to those in OK. I can not image what they are going through and my heart is heavy for that area. I pray that Christ will show His presence and the people will find strength and comfort in His arms. 

Second, 


This was easy for me today since it IS my birthday! At 12:09 this morning, I turned the whopping 28 years young. To help me celebrate my birthday, all my readers should enjoy Krispy Kreme doughnuts and ice cream. You think I'm kidding? I'm not. Krispy Kreme doughnuts and ice cream go hand-in-hand with my birthday every year. Michael woke me up with my favorite Krispy Kreme doughnuts while singing me "Happy Birthday" and we plan on having ice cream for dessert tonight. What a wonderful way to start the day!

I'll give you the birthday recap tomorrow :)

I LOVE the weekend recap

This weekend was fabulous! Friday night we celebrated a friend's birthday at Aqua Terrace downtown. We spent all day Saturday at the beach soaking up some rays. Sunday we relaxed and rested up for the week ahead.

If you've never been to Aqua Terrace, I recommend that you go. It is a large space overlooking the water. The staff was friendly and they had live music. We had a large group of people and they accommodated us nicely. Needless to say...we had a LOT of fun :)













I LOVE these friends. Let's all go again sometime soon!!
LOVE, sje

I LOVE Quirky

I've been in a really quirky mood lately. Have you noticed that I used the phrase "cray cray" in two different posts? That's not normal. I don't know what has come over me. I think the last few days of being 27 are getting to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to see what 28 brings with it but let's be honest...it's on the old side of your late twenties. Whew...anyway.

Quirky: characterized by peculiar or unexpected traits 

I don't consider myself to be a quirky person, although, I am always intrigued by someone who is. Someone who is confident enough to be a little different is someone I want to be friends with. Seriously, how fun would it be to hang out with Zooey Deschanel for a day? Below are some of the quirkiness that I've fallen in LOVE with:

Now, just looking at the work quirky makes me feel quirky. Ok...seriously...signing off for today.
