i checked IG this morning and my eyes were immediately drawn to this comment:
reading that blessed me in a major way. even though my IG account is mostly a combo of fitness inspiration, food, relevant funny memes, and a lil bit of family, i never want to lose sight of the BIG picture, which is pointing souls toward Christ and being a light for Him via my lifestyle. He is apart of everything i do. and if he isn’t, i want no part of it. my account did not start out this way though. i used to follow the big ‘fitspo’ pages until they became oversexualized and promoting everything but fitness. seems like Likes and praise from man outweigh His approval more and more these days but i refuse to compromise my faith…anymore. i have deleted many a picture because it made me uneasy and didn’t sit well with my spirit. which means it didn’t sit well with Him either! at this point in my life, i simply want what He wants. if that means letting go of those IG pages that stunt my spiritual growth, so be it. done. IDK how in the world i found Heather Lindsey but she has been a blessing ever since that fateful day. whew! she inspires me daily as a woman, wife, and mother and has such an inspiring testimony. if you aren’t already following her, #youremissingout!
i found this on Instagram somewhere and i thought it was the cutest thing ever. it reminded me of my parents actually. my mom is a few inches taller than my dad so they’d have to switch though, hahahaha! this could be Sonny and i, but the amount of time i spend in any grocery store annoys him (it’s an experience. hello.) and i’d never come out with just 5 items. even at Sam’s.
happy sunday family funday to you! #bestpicofthebunch
speaking of grocery shopping, we took a trip to the best store eva after church today, Central Market. the Chocolate Festival is currently going on until the 17th of this month, guys! i believe we have gone for the past 4 or 5 years now.
we strolled right on up as these guys were being served. salty, sweet PERFECTION! i grabbed a recipe card immediately. you bet i’m gonna make a heathified version of these puppies.
here’s the original version though.
we grabbed lunch inside before heading out to the patio to enjoy the live band. Chiso is unbelievably picky and wasn’t interested in anything CM had to offer. well, besides candy of course, which was not happening. so, he had a banana and some plantain chips for the time being and i made him some pizza when we got home.
i attacked the salad bar and seriously got like one scoop of everything!
we hope you had a sweet V-Day weekend 😉
Q: what’s your fave chocolate covered treat?
