Fashion Thursday

Hey, hey, y’all!!  I don’t know about you, but this week has me in a browsing mood.  It’s cold and rainy here in Texas, so I have been bookmarking a few of my favorites to share here with you!41a1e1c67c6b9aecf47624e43ae8a4f6_bestFirst off, I love this watch!   I think the colors are just so pretty and classic.  I am not a watch girl, but this totally has me thinking I might change my tune.


I loved this sheath dress for church or the office.  I always say that I am really good at dressing up in the summer, but I struggle with the Spring…I love that this dress has a sleeve and a modest cut!


Listen, some of you are going somewhere fabulous for Spring Break next month, and you are already in a swimsuit state of mind!   I love this one piece with the mesh and peekaboo style! Mamas, this swimsuit will cover  you up and be super cute this Spring Break!


If you have a wedding or a special event coming up, I think this dress is so pretty with the blue lace and is something a little different than what’s out there! The reviews are great too!


I have a thing for light grey sweaters, but look at how darling the ruffle is on this off the shoulder option. This one’s on sale too which is a total bonus!


As we transition to Spring, I am loving this stripe top for warmer days with jeans


and this light chambray top with white jeans!   I have both of these, and they are such great staples this time of the year! 🙂


And, finally…I totally had to include this because….did you know that Champion is back in style?  Jackson is growing again, so we needed to do some shopping for him and he asked for a Champion hoodie.  I was like…”what? Is Champion thing again?”  And, indeed it is!   So, there you go….being a mom of a teenager is keeping my finger on the pulse of fashion trends.  haha.  ;). Anyway, if you want to be ahead of the curve, go ahead and grab you a hoodie!  Or if you have a teen, grab one for them and totally take the credit for knowing they were cool.  I won’t tell. 😉

Happy Thursday, friends!  I will see you back here for Friday Favorites! XOXO N

Grateful :)

Hey, y’all! I am so excited to share something  with you that is so very special to me! 🙂

Recently, I came across this Bible verse and challenged myself to find something that I was grateful (or thankful) for on a daily basis and record it during my prayer time. I tend to be a positive person in general, but this challenge really stretched me to find gratitude in all areas of my life….you know, if I didn’t want to be thankful for the same exact things every single day. ;). Can I share that viewing your life through a lens of gratitude is completely transforming?

Some of what I’ve recorded are the big, obvious things (family, health, security, etc)….and some so small that I might have otherwise missed them had I not been looking.  What a blessing this has been!

I thought it might be fun to extend this a bit… So, for each day in March, I will be sharing a photo over on Instagram of what I am grateful for!

People often ask why I choose to be so open with my Faith.  Mostly, it’s just a call to share my story with everyone around me….but, it also comes from of a deep gratitude for how God has completely transformed my heart since I chose to know and follow Him.   Finding gratitude in my every day life is just an extension of that and my heart, and I am so excited to share it with you. 🙂

Feel free to follow along with my Instagram posts… I’ll be posting every day from March 1-31st and using the hashtag #GLGratitudeProject2018. :). Easter is on April 1st this year, and I can’t think of a better way to prepare for it. 🙂

Happy Wednesday, friends! P.S. I am grateful for you!


Tuesday Talk

Hey, y’all! I hope you had an awesome President’s Day yesterday!!  It was so nice to take a day off and just enjoy our little family. Today, I am all rested up and linking up with the sweetest girls, Ashley and Erika, for their fun link-up “Tuesday Talk!”

Each month, we link up and discuss a different topic, and I love getting help and ideas from you all!

This month, I need your help!   Each of the kids got an Amazon Echo Dot for Valentine’s Day, and we are needing all your tips on how we should be using this. What are your tips and tricks for Alexa?  We need it all. 🙂


  I’ve heard she has a good sense of humor, and I love that!!  I am hoping that some of y’all have some fun or funny things that we can ask her?  Also, how do you, your kids, and your family use her?  Everyone I know loves Alexa,  so I am all ears and ready to learn.  So far, we’ve managed to set our morning alarms with her, and that has been so nice.

I am looking forward to hearing all your thoughts!   Leave your Alexa tips in the comments, and I will be sharing some of them on our Friday Favorites posts.   Also, tomorrow, I am sharing about something really special, so I can’t wait see you back here for that!   Happy Tuesday! XOXO Narci
