                                          Meredith Andrews- Not for a Moment. 

 My favourite part of this whole day and outfit was my hair. It took me 1.5 hrs to do it but it was definitely worth it. 



Dear Me,

Dear Me,

I know that you wish you hadn't picked up that extra shift. But lets be realistic here, you gotta do what you gotta do. I know you wish that you'd been faithful to your weight-loss goals but you've just been too tired to go. I know I promised I'd wake up and pray today but sleeping was so blissful, because you finally slept through the whole night. I know this week has felt like forever & EVER, but its Friday  which means tomorrow you get to
 go to church after your last shift of the week. And I know you miss home & your friends, but you know you're in the will of God by being right where you are. 

I know its been one of those weeks, but you've had a great time doing some living lately. Your true hearts desires are beginning to show and your kinda learning to walk on your own. And you've grown up a bit and certain things aren't as important as they once were. Remember, that we started the year of with determination and that you decided to be a better you, a much better you. 

Lets keep in mind all of your favorite things that we've done this week anyways,
1. Started a new book.

2. Found a song that expresses what I feel these days.

3. Sandals @ Payless.
It just means springs coming!
That makes me super happy!
4. My nephew. Yesterday when I got home he gave me two kisses and wanted to play with me.
I love that.

5. Winter Pictures. They just look so beautiful. 

Happy Friday!

Wedding Style.

To be totally honest,
I'm not a fan of weddings. 
I've only been to maybe a handful and I've never had a super fabulous time.
The first wedding that I ever went to that was pretty awesome was my cousins. 
& that was because there was a cute boy.

I do enjoy wedding cake. (Love)

Anyways, a friend of mine got married & it was pretty good. It made me happy to see them happy.
So my cousin Sarah (yes, from Sarahs Camera) took some pictures of me that day. 
So here they are.

I caught the bouquet. 

My nephew and I. 
He's super cute.
Makes me look good.

Dress: Penningtons
Blazer: RW & CO
Belt: Ardenes
Shoes: Unknown (Paris Hilton) 

I've been going to the gym for the last month. Since I got back from my trip. I have lost 1lb.
I feel more determined than I've felt in a really long time.
I'll keep ya updated!
