New Year, New Devotional

I received this devotional for Christmas after seeing many gals posting praise on Instagram and blogs about this book and how it helps answer and embrace a huge question we are constantly asking and seeking to understand... Our true worth as a Woman.

 I've decided to share my notes with y'all on the first category... ACCEPTED.

How awesome was that? Maybe that's something you needed to read today, I know we can all relate about being accepted. Here's the lyrics to "Redeemed" in case you've never heard the words before!

Praise God that we are REDEEMED! My heart is filled with so much JOY knowing that my chains have been set free and I'm not who I used to be!

Have a wonderful weekend! I'm off to make a pot roast for the hubby and I!

Christmas Decor 2013

I know it's a little late, BUT better late than never! Here's some of our Christmas decor from our 1st Christmas as Husband and Wife! 

We have a lime green and red theme that ran throughout our home, which I love! Traditional yet funky!

Here's our tree! The big red bow will be replaced next year ;) We totally don't have any stocking holders or a mantle, so we improvised!
We also have another tree that I don't have a picture of!! How could I? Ugh! Anyways, it's our Married Christmas tree and includes our engagement ornaments as well as wedding ornaments! It's my favorite tree in the whole world :) I didn't want to take it down! Here's a sample of some of the ornaments that it displayed :)
I LOVE the way these wreaths turned out! Thankful for Pinterest!
This was a thrown together centerpiece for our table. Our dishes are the "Simply Christmas" by M. Bagwell
Andy and I just LOVED receiving Christmas cards from friends and family!! We displayed them in our foyer!
Here's a little peek of our front door, this was the beginning stage of the decor process! Clearly should've taken a nighttime picture! The tree has clear lights on it and the garland is my fav!! It came from SAMs Club! I also added a Christmas door mat.
These are my FAVORITE frames!! I snagged another red one yesterday on after Christmas sale for 75% off :)
 The frames include a couple pics from our Christmas photo shoot with the cousins, our furbaby and Logan!

I'll be back soon! Promise ;) Until then, have a fabulous day!

Happy New Year!

We are 7 days into the year 2014 and so far, this past week has been a great one! 2014 sickness has hit our household with all this crazy south Alabama weather we've been having! Even our little furbaby Chloe has been sick! We have been spending lots of time with friends and family which is SO very important to the Mister and I! We are so very lucky to have such dear neighbors that have turned to fabulous friends, Brandon and Leah! They have a little girl named Collins who is PRECIOUS!!! She loves coming over to "Mr.Handy and Mrs. Slenzy's house"!

Every week we all play the game Sequence, it's always fun playing guys vs. gals! 

Andy and I had a hot date the other day and finally went to see the movie Frozen! Oh my goodness, it's absolutely the cutest little movie!! If you haven't seen it, please go! 

Our sweet nephew Logan is 7 months old today!!! I can't believe it! He's starting to drive already ;)

Don't you just LOVE Andy's Christmas Eve sweater? ;)

Happy New Year my friends! May God bless each one of you this year!
