In church today, our pastor spoke on the outcome of prayer/ fasting and the immeasurable outcomes of being diligent in both. Along with that he repeatedly said this... and I cannot stop thinking about it, so I thought I would share it with you. 

"I would encourage you to pray that the Lord would do something that only the Lord can do. Pray that He would do something that no one else is capable of... pray that you wouldn't even be able to fathom it."

What is man, that you make so much of him,
and that you set your heart on him,
visit him every morning
and test him every moment?

Job 7:17-18 ESV

sparkles + sequins

Have you seen the new jcrew catalog? Well over here at my house we are loving every little bit of it. The sequins and silver and pink... and all of the confetti systems garland. I just about died when I opened the catalog yesterday. I will be the first to admit that I truly love anything with sparkles... its my inner taylor swift. 

premeditated holiday cheer

So while I was sitting at my desk today I looked down at my calendar and realized that it is exactly one week until thanksgiving holidays commence... which sadly means 3 days off opposed to the eternity of holidays associated with what I formerly referred to as the start of christmas break/  endless sorority parties/ and maybe a few finals. But anyways, I am excited nonetheless. After convincing my brother to not go to the UT/A&M game we will now all be under one roof for turkey day craziness. And let me tell you- its usually somewhat crazy.

You see my Grandmother is the Queen of holidays in my family. She hosts every one of them without a glitch and complete with every form of my favorite dish. And around 3 years ago my mom decided that she would take over Thanksgiving which is fine... but different {and let me tell you that my brother and I dont really like change when it comes to holiday plans.} I'm sure that some of you agree with me....

Anyways, heres some holiday decor to get the season started. Bring on the 5 day work day countdown. I am ready to see nacogdoches...

wedding no 5

How was your weekend? I would never say that mine was better than yours, but it truly was a wonderful, blissfully happy weekend. I celebrated the wedding of two of my closest friends {it was actually the fifth wedding in six weeks but who's counting?} These two people are a perfect example of perfect timing and perseverance. These two know hardship and they know how to love well. It was seriously inspiring to be amongst them this weekend.

country strong.

It is a pretty known fact that I have a serious love for gwyneth paltrow. She's married to Chris Martin, best friends with Stella McCartney, writes a famous blog, has a daughter named apple... and rocks anything she ever wears. I love her. She is my ultimate celeb crush... and her new movie looks like it might have potential to be my favorite one yet. 

I seriously have watched the trailer 20 times today. It looks so good... Just take a little peak for yourself.

cheers to the seefelds!

Pictures from the best little lubbock wedding I have ever seen...
not to mention the most laid back, pretty bride ever. This was
hands down one of the funnest weekends of the year. Who
knew that a trip to lubbock, texas could feel like a vacation?

congrats mrs. seefeld. xoxo
How fickle my heart 
and how woozy my eyes
I struggle to find 
any truth in your lies
And now my heart stumbles 
on things I don't know
This weakness I feel 
I must finally show

Lend me your hand 
and we'll conquer them all
But lend me your heart 
and I'll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes 
I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, 
totally free
Har har, har har, har har, har har

In these bodies we will live, 
in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, 
you invest your life
In these bodies we will live, 
in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love,
you invest your life

Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
You were made to meet your maker
Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
You were made to meet your maker
You were made to meet your maker
