Religion, necklaces, coupon share

There's still a day left to enter to win a set of snackTAXI sacks! If you entered prior to this weekend, please go enter again by leaving a new comment. That post, and all it's original comments got lost when Blogger "performed maintenance" for 24+ hours.

So, back to the 30 day challenge, which I seem to be stretching out much longer than it should be. Two weeks later, I’m on day 4. But it works, right?

My views on religion. This could open up a whole big can of worms, and I really don’t want to go there, so we’re going to keep this short and sweet, mmkay? I understand that my beliefs may not be yours, and that is ok.

God is SO good to me. Here are the basics.

I believe in God. “I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God…” Exodus 6:7

I believe Jesus died for me. “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28

And rose from the dead. "But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.” Acts 2:24

I believe in grace. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8

We should love one another. “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7 “We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19

And this is what love is. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

God has a perfect plan for everyone. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29: 11-13

And now I need your help! I won a $50 gift card to use at Lisa Leonard Designs, and I'm debating between these two necklaces. Which one should I get??
Rain or Shine, so glad you're mine
(I could add my girls' names)

teeny tiny initals

I can't decide, so I really need your help! 

Also, I have a coupon for $10 off any bra at Victoria's Secret. Being that Vicky doesn't make any nursing bras, I have no use for it at the moment. (And lord knows what condition the girls will be in following their second session of a year of breastfeeding. Yikes!) 
If any of you would use it, let me know, and I'd be happy to mail it to ya!

Which necklace do you think I should get?
What's for dinner tonight? I need inspiration. 


  1. I like both the necklaces, but I'd probably get the initial one!

    Dinner tonight is chicken stir fry!

  2. I love the initials necklace. I'm a big fan of lowercase initials.

    Dinner tonight? Hmm...I'm afraid I'd be of no use to you since I will most likely have cereal. What I'd LOVE to make, if I had gone to the grocery store this weekend, is chicken parmesan.

    A Vicky's gift card? I was just thinking this weekend as I was folding my laundry, that I need new undies. And I get mine from there.. :)

  3. Dinner tonight: Easy spinach lasagna...that even my toddler eats!

    I think I'd get the initials necklace. Have a great day!

  4. Thanks for sharing your beliefs!

    I like the initial necklace :) So fun that you won!

    And for dinner - I always was stumped so I asked my husband. Hamburgers and baked potatoes it is! :)

  5. I am always a fan of initial necklaces. I wear mine ALL the time. I can't help it! I guess that is the egomaniac in me.
    I love the Bible verses you chose. :)
    I did the 30-day blog challenge that is a bit different from this one, and it really took me about 3 months. I figure it's the thought that counts.

    P.S. Here is the link to my Liver Life Walk website:

  6. Very pretty and spiritual post.

    I like the rain or shine necklace. It is unique.

    I get those coupons all the time along with the 'free panty' ones which I try to remember to use. :)


  7. the initial necklace is what I would pick.

    It is timeless.

    Dinner tonight? I just got home from a weekend trip to Dallas with my cousins, I haven't even gone to the grocery store so it's probably Braums!! =) Or Buffalo Wild wings, yum that sounds good!!

  8. I like the initial one. Besides, how do you pick which daughter is rain and which one is sunshine?
    And I have pork ribs cooking in my crock pot RIGHT NOW. Are you jealous? Cuz you should be. :)

  9. I really like the rain or shine necklace. Lots of people have initial necklaces & you could probably get one anywhere. I feel like the rain or shine one is much more special/unique. It's sweet!

  10. So hard to choose

  11. Both necklaces are really sweet and I always have the hardest time choosing too:)Have a fantastic day, sunshine.

    P.S: I'm hosting an amazing Fischer's dress Giveaway Reloaded today! Don't miss it!

  12. I like the first one...It is gorgeous!

  13. I love them both - and the initial one is really sweet... BUT

    I ADORE the rain or shine one! Mostly because it's unique and you can still personalize it! I LOVE that its different from other initial necklaces. I would definitely get that one, if it were me!! :)

  14. Dinner tonight: Balsamic Chicken with white beans and spinach

  15. I like the rain or shine necklace better personally! Dinner tonight, mexican smothered chicken thighs. It's a new recipe, hoping it's good!

  16. They're both cute but I really like the rain or shine one.

    Simple tonight: Spaghetti! :)

    And I enjoyed your take on religion!

  17. i LOVE the initial won - it is adorable. The rain or shine one is also super cute - you def can't go wrong!!

    We'll be dining on some cajun rubbed and stuffed with wild rice chicken and steamed broccoli:)

  18. I love them both! It would be hard for me to choose.

    Awesome and Insightful post! :)

    Tonight it's up in the air between Chicken Taccos, or Gumbo (could that be any more opposite?)

  19. I like them both! BUT I would go with the rain or shine one... Dinner tonight is looking like shake and bake chicken and some veggie.

  20. I'm a Jesus Freak : ) Loved your post.

    My vote is for the initials necklace

  21. Meatloaf for dinner at our place.

    Nope on the coupon...I've resigned myself to nursing bras for the indefinite future, and I'm cool with that.

    Both necklaces are cute, I really couldn't say...

  22. We love and serve the same LORD. AMEN! :)

    Love the 2nd necklace. (I mean, hello, monogram boutique! I'm sorta partial! :)

    You don't want the answer to the nursing question.

    Moving on...dinner. I'm supposed to make dinner?


    Sophisticated Steps

  23. Following you thru Magnificent Monday! Would love a follow back!

  24. I like both of them, but I like the second one by an inch more. SO sweet!
    I'm still trying to come up with something for dinner, so can't help ya there :-)

  25. I love the rain or shine necklace! As far as's currently 5:15pm, my husband is on his way home and I still have no clue what to fix... oops!

  26. My Aunt got me the teeny tiny initals necklace for my first mother's day as a mommy of two. I LOVE IT. So, I would choose that one. :) :)

  27. I love the second necklace! And I have that same 10 off coupon, so I went and tried on some bras Saturday (not that I really need any) and I tried on there new "add 2 cups size" bra. I said ummm ... y'all have this even on the D Cup (my size). She said yes, so I tried it on for kicks. UNREAL! I looked RIDICULOUS!!! I don't know why any girl who had D boobs would want to add 2 sizes. Anyway, I didn't find a bra that I liked which I figured was just as well because bras are popping out of my bra drawer as it is. I just seriously cannot resist VS and they ALWAYS send me coupons. I am a sucker.

  28. oooh, initials! Definitely!

  29. Both the necklaces are nice, but I like the first one more.

    Can't you use the victoria secret coupon for a body spray or lotion instead of lingerie?

  30. hey you know me, I'm all for opening a can of worms, esp on blogger :)

    anyway, I totally agree with everything you said about your religious views. all of it.

    and the first necklace, rain and shine. That is SO cute!

  31. Love your post!
    AS for the necklace… I like the rain or shine. It is different!! Happy Monday!

  32. I love the rain or shine super cute, I would add the girls name!! Love this post!!!! <3

  33. Just found your blog! I won a LL gift cert too and I LOVE the tiny initials. But you can't go wrong with either. Love that you shared the gospel. Can't help you with dinner...we had In N Out ;)

  34. I'm a little late for dinner, but we had bbq chicken and noodles.

    I like the initial necklace...but if you have another child you will need to add an initial. That's assuming you would pick your kids initials:)

  35. I love the rain or shine necklace! So absolutely precious!!

  36. i REALLY like the teeny tiny initials one. it's more versatile, i think. but EITHER is super cute!

  37. I like both necklaces, but I like the saying with the rain or shine one. I'd most likely choose the initial one though

  38. Following your adorable blog from the Tuesday Hop! Hope you'll stop by The Mommy Blog:

  39. I think I like the first necklace pictured best, and I love the verses you posted. also wanted to comment that I love your header the pictures are beautiful.
