Flowers and Shopping

I am, and always have been, a soft-hearted person. Just ask my mom. Every day when I went to kindergarten I cried and had a tummyache because I missed my mommy. Hallmark commercials make me cry. I refuse to watch Radio or The Notebook because I know I will cry. If someone else is crying, I'm crying, guaranteed. Something that has really got to me the last couple of days is everyone posting their flowers they received for Valentine's Day on Facebook. It hurts my heart to think of how that feels for everyone who is single. I know how bad it hurts every time someone announces they're pregnant. This coming May will mark three years of trying to have a baby for us. You can imagine how many people have gotten pregnant and had babies in that time. It hurts. I am bracing myself for "getting lapped" when people who got pregnant after we started trying are going to start announcing their second pregnancy. I know it isn't a race and God has a perfect plan for us but that doesn't take away the pain.

So back to flowers. I woke up to these Monday morning.

Thank you to my better half for these wonderful flowers. But more importantly, to anyone who is single and waiting on their better half, God has a plan for you too. It is immensely better than any plan you could conceive of; trust in Him.

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. Jeremiah 29:11

Well, that takes care of the "Flowers" part of the title of this post. On to the "Shopping!"

I went to the mall today. I know. Shocker. But I got some REALLY good loot! For great prices!

The Spread:

I just LOVE this gray and yellow combination ($7.50 Old Navy):

I think I'll wear this denim shirt/dress with leggings ($20.49 Old Navy):

This pink lace number is a.dor.a.ble and wore it tonight with black tights and a black cardigan on our Valentine's date ($22.80 Forever 21):

More gray with yellow and black ($6.99 Old Navy):


This looks better on but I LOVE the sheer fabric. Though I HATE built in camis. They always get all twisted so I cut them out. ($7.99 Old Navy)

Pretty in Pink ($6.99 Old Navy):

Lace Detail:

Of course a cardigan...I have "a thing" for cardigans ($17.50 Old Navy):


I also got two infinity scarves from Forever 21 for $4.50 each - cream and orange. They are SO soft.

Goodness gracious, I think that's enough for tonight. I hope you all have a lovely week!


  1. LOVE the pink lace one!
    And you are very right, God does have a plan. He will reveal it when we least expect it. When he does, we are surprised by how right it was!

  2. sweet deals! :) i love your picks!

  3. Reanna- I love to tune in to your blog, God has given you such a heart for loving people. I continue to pray for peace for your heart as you wait for God to reveal his amazing plan for a baby for you and Jeremy.

  4. Thank you for being so open to how you're trusting God with your unknowns. :)
