Date night

datenight-1

I wish I could say this will be my date night look this weekend, but unfortunately our date night will be netfilx in bed. I LOVE getting dressed up and going out to dinner with my man. Especially being a stay at home mom, my daily outfits usually consist of yoga pants and food stained shirts. So when we get a rare night out, I dress up. [Read more…]

My go to

overalls-4

Back in my favorite overalls and another crop top 😉 Went for all white this time. It’s getting VERY hot here in Texas and these are almost too hot to wear so I wanted to get one more wear in. This top I got at Forever 21 for super cheap and I usually wear it to the pool but like the way it looks with just a black bra under it and when paired with the [Read more…]

Bright button down

brightbuttondown-3

This summer I’m all about the off shoulder tops and dresses but there is something about a great button down too. This one is so lightweight making it perfect for this Texas heat and the bright colors are so fab. I love the high-low hem and that the back has a slit to make it more interesting.

Home decor

homedecor-3

We built our home 2 years ago, this June, and I couldn’t love it more. I am so thankful for our home and the community we live in ♥ I have always had a love for home design/decor but never had a home to experiment with. The furniture in our house, are things that we’ve had since we got married, and we haven’t had the [Read more…]

Summer dress

urbandress-2

I am a creature of habit when it comes to the stores I shop at. I have my regulars and I rarely stray because I know I will find things that I love and that fit me perfectly. Urban Outfitters is not on my list, but it certainly is now. I saw a dress on an insta post and fell in love (it will have it’s own due post later) and went searching for it in store and came across this one as well. It’s the same brand, Kimchi Blue, and is THE PERFECT [Read more…]

Ripped jeans and new boots

hotel-3

For our anniversary we stayed at the Stonleigh Hotel in Dallas and it was such a cute hotel. We were there one night and I brought about 4 different outfits lol. My husband thinks I’m nuts, but whats new?! I always over pack, regardless where or for how long. When I originally got these jeans, it wasn’t long after my second [Read more…]

10 years strong

anniv-3

This past weekend, my hubby and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. That is no small accomplishment, in my mind!! Especially because we are both very hard headed and have a hard time letting go of things. We have [Read more…]

My baby is one

jadeyisone2

My baby turned one yesterday and I am in disbelief at how fast this year has gone by. I can’t believe I have a 5 year old and now a 1 year old. My prayer for both of my girls, is that they don’t let fear get in the way of anything they want to do. That they be true to who they are and feel confidant in their own skin. I pray that God puts a dream in their heart, and they have the courage and strength to follow through with it. It’s so easy to blend in with the crowd, but it takes so much courage to step out of your comfort zone and be different. To be the person God called them to be. Growing up I dealt with so much insecurity. I hated the way I looked with a passion. I thought my nose was too big, I didn’t think I was pretty enough, my clothes weren’t cute enough, and the list went on. I compared myself to anyone and everything that was different than me. It truly robbed me of many of my years. So much so, that in my late teens, early 20’s, I developed an eating disorder. I wanted to be perfect so badly, that I did anything to achieve that. It grieves me now to think about how sad that was and how I wish I could shake that young Mary and tell her how amazing and beautiful and how PERFECT in God’s eyes I was. People will always fail you and will always make you feel less than you are. Especially in today’s world. I cringe thinking of what kind of world my girls will grow up in. Comparison is everywhere and striving to be perfect is everywhere. I want to instill in them confidence and boldness to deal with this world’s standards. To not blend in, but to be whoever God calls them to be, and to have the courage to deal with opposition from every direction. I pray that I can be the kind of mother that encourages them and never makes them feel like they don’t have what it takes. I want to be their biggest fan, their biggest cheerleader, and their biggest encourager. I know they are called for a purpose and I am so excited to see what’s in store for them. Big things are ahead and I will be front and center cheering them on.

XO,

Mary ♥
