Since it's the season of Lent, I got to wear purple this morning for worship too.

That face is my "I didn't sleep well last night and it was Daylight Savings Time so I also lost an extra hour of sleep" face.  Yeah, it was a fun morning. 

XOXO, Bethany

Yesterday I decided that my new favorite color is purple.  I've been leaning away from yellow for a long time...but I hadn't yet decided on what would take its place.  As we photographed new inventory, I kept "oohing" and "ahhing" over every piece that had purple in it.  So Joel pointed out that my new favorite color is purple.  Also, he let me keep an awesome new pair of leggings.

I tried my 3D mascara for the first time today.  It is amazing!  Now, to be fair, my lashes have started looking amazing even without mascara lately, thanks to Lash Boost from Rodan + Fields.  But couple the lash growth I've seen with a fabulous mascara and I get this:

Wing Craving - Satisfied!

I have been craving wings since last Thursday, and I gotta say, that Buffalo Wild Wings trip was not exactly what I wanted.  I prefer bone-in wings to boneless, and their blue cheese dressing left something to be desired.  And at the end of the day, wings are really a blue cheese delivery system for me. 

Happy Mail!

Today I got some happy mail!  I love ordering items from other DS ladies, there is nothing better than getting something new and fun in the mail.  I've been hearing about the 3D fiber lashes by Younique for years, but I've never taken the plunge to try them.  An old friend from Ames recently started selling, had a flash sale, and I decided to go for it!

Here's the pretty box they came in.  I'll have to do a review once I give it a try! 

Wear A Dress Tuesday #10

Today I got to wear a new-to-me style - the Joy!  Joy is a long vest that is great for layering.  This is another piece that when I first saw it (like the Carly) I thought uhhh...I will never wear that.  And now, 8 months later, I'm wearing one.  It has totally grown on me and I kinda love it!

I'm checking in quickly tonight as I have a million photos to take and template for LuLaRoe.  We had quite the storm tonight, including a tornado siren that sent us running to the basement in the middle of dinner.  For a while the sky had that weird color it gets during tornado conditions.  I tried to catch it in a picture but it didn't come out exactly right.

It Only Took Seven Years

I've been serving in worship on Sundays in some capacity for about seven years now.  Ever since I started wearing a robe and serving communion, I've been terrified of getting grape juice on my beautiful white robe.  Today, it finally happened. 

During the communion liturgy I did things in a different order than I normally do, I don't know why.  As I reached to take the lid off the small communion cups, I could see that my sleeve was going to dip into the large communion cup.  I saw it coming, almost in slow motion, and yet I didn't stop myself.

Today we made another LuLaRoe trip to Ames.  We had several customers to deliver items for, and one who wanted to shop!  We brought some of our pieces and she did some shopping at our friend Danielle's boutique.  We spent about an hour playing dress up and it was so much fun!  I can't believe I get paid to do this.

After last night's sleepover we had our real meeting today.  I really enjoyed catching up with everyone and sharing about everything going on here.  While we chatted in the living room, Heather's dog took an adorable nap on the couch between Sarah and me.  She crawled under the covers herself, then moved them off of her face.  So. cute.
