Book Review:Named by God by Kasey Van Norman

I recently had the chance to review this book. The lady that wrote the book has been through so much in her life including rape and going through some time apart from God. She helps people in this book show how to over come what you have been through and show you how God has a plan for your life. You do not have to live in the past or in fear of your past. Also to move past hurts that have broke you in the past. We all have things we have been through in life and with God we have the power to overcome them because we are named by God and each us has an identity with him. If your having a hard time overcoming hurt and pain or your past, I think you would get a lot out of this book as it brings verses and stories from the bible along with the stories from the authors life. She was encouragement of all she has overcame in life. God has named us all and we can always be found in him.

I received this book free from Tyndale for my honest review

I can dream a Little Dream..can' I?

 I've always been very careful with guys and kept my guard up,because you see I know and have realized it more lately that I want the very best,the one God has in store for me. I am not going settle for anyone. I want to settle for God's one for me. Ok back to my story at what this blog post is about. Pinterest, I love that website and now thanks to it I have a board of wedding ideas. I know it's sad because I'm not dating anyone and no hints of any in the near future..lol..but I actually have a theme I would want for a wedding now. I never had one before and finally figured out what I wanted or should I say would want from Pinterest. I want a Vintage themed wedding,like "The Notebook" movie era. It's hard to explain because I see it in my head but can't actually describe it..lol. I want a old time feel. Here are a few pictures below I found on Pinterest of ideas.

This I like for Bridesmaid dresses. I love how it just flows down. 
Something about this dress I have fallen in love with for a Vintage style. I use to think I wanted the big pretty flowing wedding gown,but something about this I just love. The sleeves are just beautiful.
In this one I am looking at the man's clothing. It reminds me of Noah in the Notebook movie. I think it's the cutest style for the time period wedding I like. Plus I love the umbrella and the grooms hat,it is something different.
I love this kind of color on pictures,it would be the old time look I want and I love the old car too!
I like the old truck in this one..so cute
 I love the beads on the flower stems.

Ok hope you enjoyed my little day dreaming..lol. Of course if I ever do get married it could change in a heartbeat..but it's fun to dream:)

Day Drive with Mom!

The other day me and mom took a ride through KY countryside near where we live,we are right at the border almost. We traveled around through the area and it has so many Amish and Mennonite families. I love learning and hearing about their life and culture. It is so peaceful in that area. We happened to locate a store off the back road. They had a sign at the road and that is how we found it. It was the cutest store. The two men that greeted us were so friendly and very helpful! They had all the housewares part in the store. Mom bought some beautiful bookmarks that were painted by his sister who lives in NY and she makes them into bookmarks with bible verses. Mom bought the cutest bowl too. He then lead us too the back in another building where there was all the produce. Mom bought Strawberry's,Cucumbers,Peppers,Tomatoes,Bananas,Lettuce, and a Jar of Jam. They also sold beautiful flowers. I'm not sure if they were Amish or Mennonite. I will go back again for their welcome smiles and friendly attitudes. If your in the area it is called "Sauder Farm County Market" right near the Jefferson Davis Monument. Their address is  959 Britmart Rd. Elkton, KY 42220. Go check them out! I hear they also near there have the "Fairview Produce Auction" where lots bring in their produce to auction off. Then me and mom also stopped by "The Jefferson Davis Monument" which is a very tall structure. We ended the day out at Dairy Queen. It was nice time with mom and I enjoyed my time with her.

Mom took pictures of the Jefferson Davis Monument below

Weekend Thrifting and Yard Sales!

If you know me and read my blog,you know I love me some yard sales and thrift stores!! This weekend was awesome with the sales! It was the first Saturday of the month and in our area that means 50% off whole store at the goodwill,so I went to 2 of those in my area:) So Friday another thrift store was having 50% off day and I went there and then I have been meaning to stop by this other thrift store I have seen so I did and to my surprise it was having a 50% off sale too. Then I went to yard sales on both Friday and Saturday!! One yard sale in my neighborhood gave me this cool food slicer thing for a 1.00 and the man we seen at kmart the other day showing the same thing in a different brand was selling them for $28.00,so I think that was a deal!!! We are a military town here and people are constantly moving,so there are always wonderful yard sales out on every corner!! Here is some pictures of my finds!!

 Got all these clothes at varies thrift stores. Shirt were around $2.00 and a pair of blue jeans and Capri's and pants for around $3.00
 Picked up the books from different thrifts and yard sales. Ranging from .99-$1.49
 Thrift store find the pocketbook above for $3.00. I am going to use as a cosmetic bag and the pocketbook below was just so cute for 1.00 at a yard sale and it's Old Navy

 Yard Sale Find Wallet and Pocketbook together for $3.00!!
The bible cover was a cool find at a yard sale for $2.00
This bible was just a really good sale! I have been wanting one of these purple ones and found one at Lifeway for $5.00 on sale and it is KJV!!

Hope you enjoyed my bargain finds!! I hardly ever buy new for me it has to be on Clearance,Yard Sales or Thrift Stores!! I like the Duggars motto "Buy used and Save the Difference"

Book Review:Simply Grilling by Jennifer Chandler

I had the chance to read and review this book! I always love looking through new cookbooks and finding new dishes that sound good! With summer coming up, grilling will be on the menu alot. If you want a grilling cookbook with nothing but good grilling recipes,then this is the book for you. It's filled with recipes and not only just meat,but other foods as well,such as desserts and stuff. Each recipe comes with a picture on one side and the recipe on the other side. Some are simple,while others takes more ingredients. I love a cookbook with pictures,it makes it more interesting then just a plain old one with just the recipe. She also includes tips on grilling,such as,how long to marinate and other useful tips to make the best of your grilling. I enjoyed this cookbook. I still like to pull out cookbooks and cook from them. 

I received this book free from booksneeze for my honest review.
