Redecorating in a Week?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have a CRAZY friend who has decided to completely redecorate her house in one week . . . ONE WEEK!(Sh! Don't tell her I just said she was crazy 'cuz I told her it wasn't, but that was when I thought it was just some rearranging and adding accents. Now its grown to encompass painting, fixture changes, major furniture purchases – before I know it she’ll be knocking down walls.)

But I do have to say I’m a bit jealous. It’s always fun to put a fresh new face on the rooms in your home. I previewed some of the new spring items at Pier 1 today. Oh, if I could win a shopping spree there . . .
High fiber. A healthy dose of fun spring fabrics.
I adore the blue and green flowered pillows. They don't match a thing in my house and I'm pretty sure they aren't a reflection of my husband in any way shape or form, but I want to buy them and make my house match them.

I must be craving all things spring because I was also drawn to these beautiful flowered plates:
And you know me I've got to hit the clearance section. I found these awesome kitchen towels for just $.98 each:
Those of you that are looking for good deals need to sign up for the Pier 1 Outdoor newsletter. They will be using that mailing list to send out a special in-store deal good for the weekend of March 18-20. March 20 is officially the start of spring. 

Maybe I can convince Joey that we could use some of these great flower patterns outside! Whose up for a dinner party?

Keep watching for some great deals at Pier 1, including their Pier 1 Tweetups on these dates:

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…
