October Alight Giveaway

This will be a monthly giveaway, ending on the last day of the month each month!

Here is my experience with Alight:

I have to be honest, when I get pregnant I gain a good amount of weight. Usually somewhere around 30 lbs. By my six week check up it’s usually gone.

But the skin . . . the skin always stays. And then I continue to eat like I’m pregnant, but I’m not. And I start gaining weight again. It takes a year or so for me to get “balanced” back out, and even then the skin isn’t the same ever!

So, one of the struggles that has come with this is shirts. The plain t-shirts I wore before I ever had a baby stick out in all the wrong places, making me look pregnant all over again. I tried some of the shirts that have princess seams right under the chest, but they end up looking like maternity shirts as well.

However, I found a store that has some really cute styles for those of us that might have a bit more we would like to hide – Alight.com

 

They sent me an adorable shirt . . . unfortunately, I guess I should have ordered a size larger because it’s not quite long enough. Because of the way it kept riding up under my chest, one of my friends told me it looked like “a tutu for your boobs!” LOL While that might appeal to some of you, for the rest I would advise ordering just a bit bigger size if you select an all cotton shirt.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
