I am a 20-something year old, a wife, a mom, a friend, an adventurist, an optimist, a creator, a musician, an artist and a dreamer. I love God, and I love the potential I see in people. Maybe I can inspire that potential in you and bring about some smiles along the way. What I don't want this space to be is a place where I reap glorification. The only reason I have the ability to do the things I do is because of The Creator. Understand that I will probably make many mistakes and might fail a time or two. But I am ok with that, and hopefully you will be too.

Easter Egg Ideas

Easter is just days away, and frankly I’m excited about it. Normally I’m neither here nor there when it comes to the holiday- sad I know. I think the corniness¬† of it and the dumbing down of the gospel over the span of my life really sucked the joy out of it. But thankful over time and through growth, my heart has been made anew. I cannot wait to decorate me some eggs! I was searching for some creative and fresh ideas, and here are some that really stood out to me:

How freaking gorgeous are these Polish eggs???

 

These neon decorated Easter eggs remind me of the 60’s! They are really neat looking and easy to make. Just visit oh joy! for the tutorial on these beauties.

Want to skip all of the frill and decorate your eggs to look natural and muted? Check out B nature for the tutorial.


HOW FANTASTIC! I wish I had the patience and hand coordination to do this. I would probably destroy the poor eggs. Think you can do this? If so head on over to Design Sponge and get that thread and needle out!

I think this is my favorite out of all of them…. silk dyed eggs!!! Just take your man’s old ties or head over to the thrift store and clean them out and then follow this tutorial over at Our Best Bites! I think I’m actually going to do this.

Don’t have the creativity or the time for all of this do it yourself egg dying? Run down to the store and grab you a PAAS coloring kit. Throw the tablets in some vinegar or water, and watch those white eggs transform into pretty colors. You could even get a little wild and take an egg out of one color and put it in the other. Craziness!

Motivation.

Those days when we wake up and we say, “NOPE.”

We must fight those days. Today is like that for me. Sometimes we can identify the lack of motivation. Other times it’s not so obvious.

I read something at the very right moment this morning. I was battling in my head whether or not I was going to run today. I was browsing through my tweets and saw one that my friend Kacie had posted about a NVR STOP blog post.

“If you make doubt and fear your vacation home, it’s time to burn it.”

Umm, yea. What encouragement.

I’m almost three and a half weeks strong of consistent and challenging exercise. It only took me almost a whole year after Abram was born to finally identify what was holding me back from being healthy, even though I so desperately wanted to be. I can save that whole novel for another post on another day.

But it’s been great.

Accept for yesterday. And this morning. I just don’t feel like it. The few other times I have felt this way over the past several weeks, I would end up pushing myself further. I keep telling myself, “The more I don’t want to do this, the harder I am going to do it.”

I also have to remind myself when I feel like I can’t run any longer that I once pulled heavy Americans in a cart on the back of a bicycle for a living.

Sometimes I pretend like I’m racing the devil. HE CANNOT WIN.

I’m thankful for the moments when God shows up in the snares of laziness (like this morning) and has me read something that fills me with strength.

“He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.” Isaiah 40:29-31

Whatever you are up against today, overcome it. And do it hard.

Burn that vacation home.
