LuLaRoe Leggings Review

You guys, I'm SUPER excited to introduce you to the LuLaRoe clothing line!  I actually have several LuLaRoe reviews lined up, but I wanted to start with their most popular item - LEGGINGS!  I also wanted to introduce you to one of my FAVORITE ladies, who just so happens to be a LLR consultant - Tara Norman!

First, the leggings!  These leggings are described as "buttery soft" and, you guys, IT IS TRUE!  These leggings are SO SOFT!!!  And they are thicker than your average legging!  Not so thick that they're too warm to wear, but thick enough that they feel comfortable and stay up!

Now I'm a big girl. (3 Kids can do that to ya!) And I NEVER thought I'd rock a legging!  But I'm in love with my LuLaRoes!  I have three pairs so far!

Here are some things I love about the LuLaRoe Legging:
1.) They're SUPER comfy and soft!  - Girls, I wore these babies to church with a nice blouse and when I got home I didn't immediately want to change clothes! That NEVER happens!  Normally, as soon as I walk through the door from I'm putting on comfy clothes - usually pajamas!  Haha!  But not this Sunday!  The LLR folks have done a great job of balancing cute clothing with comfort!

2.) They come in 2 sizes!  - If you're a smaller lady, you'll want the OS (One Size) leggings.  They fit ladies sizes 2-12.  If you're more robust (or taller) then you'll want to wear the TC (Tall & Curvy) leggings. (That's what I wear.) They fit ladies sizes 12-22!  Not only do they fit, but even as I lose weight I'll still be able to wear them!

3.) They have something for everyone! - You want a solid color legging?  They've got it!  Something patterned but not "crazy?" They've got it!  Something absolutely WILD?  They've got it!

Now let me introduce you to Tara!  She's a dear friend! (We actually met in Junior High.) She's a great mommy and a great LLR Consultant!  And her page is lots of fun! She has lots of great giveaways. In fact, I won this pair (my very first pair) at one of her giveaways!

You can check Tara's sales page out on Facebook here: LuLaRoe Tara Norman Secret VIP.  You can also find her on instagram @lularoetaranorman.  Join her pages for lots of chances to win awesome stuff, lots of opportunities to shop, and even a chance to earn free clothes (if you have an online or in-home party)!

Stay tuned to my page!  There's more LuLaRoe coming soon!

NKJV American Woman's Bible Review

As you know if you read my blog with any regularity, I LOVE reviewing study Bibles! It always fascinates me to see what Bible scholars have to say about certain passages.  That's why my family owns so many different study Bibles.  Each one is interesting and helpful in its own way. For this reason,I was THRILLED when Thomas Nelson Publishers released the American Woman's Bible last month!

Punderdome Card Game Review

Once upon a time, there was a comedian named Jo Firestone.  She and her dad started this super cool, monthly pun competition in New York City, called "Punderdome."  FOlks battle it out to see who can tell the most puns.  Now, if you know anything about me, you know this is a competition I can totally get behind!  So I was so excited to see that the Firestones have turned their competition into a card game!

BabyTime USA Product Review

Its summer time!  More time in the sun means more need for sunscreen! And, if you live in the South, like we do, it means its also time to stock up insect repellent!  These are two of the many reasons that I LOVE BabyTime Products (formerly Episencial).  We've been using their products for years!  Sunscreen, bug repellent, bath wash, lotion, we love it all!

Summer Reading (from Zonderkidz) for You and Your Child

Its summertime!  That means swimming, playing outside, barbeques, and ice cream!  But it can also mean extra time for snuggling and reading with your little ones!  The fabulous folks at Zonderkidz have sent me some of their newest releases to share with you!

The Fourth of July is quickly approaching!  And that means lots of red, white, and blue decorations and patriotism!  God Bless America is a wonderful little board book to help you share your love of this country with your little one! Follow Henry and his family as they travel across the USA and see the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, Hollywood, and Washington, DC!

"Hope Unfolding: Grace-Filled Truth For The Momma's Heart" Book Review

I really enjoyed "Hope Unfolding," by Becky Thompson.  At first I wasn't so sure I would.  The first chapter was all about how she met and married her husband.  And, although it was interesting, the story seemed to drag a little.  But after that, the book just got better.

"Starter Bible" Book Review

My kiddos love to be read to!  And they love to read!  (Well, the oldest is learning to read like now.  The two youngest are still in the "pretending to read" category. Or, as my oldest says, "reading the pictures." So we love colorful, engaging books.

"The Life Giving Home" Book Review

"Home is a place of ministry.  Redeeming words, thoughts, and actions are shared and taught, the wisdom and instruction of God is passed along, and God's love is offered to all who come under its influence." - Sally Clarkson

This is what I want for my home - for it to be a place of ministry, a place of wisdom and instruction, a place that is full of God's love.  But, honestly, sometimes "life" gets in the way of my plans.  I get overwhelmed with the everyday, mundane tasks of life and forget my mission and my ministry.

"Pressing Pause:100 Quiet Moments For Moms To Meet With Jesus" BookReview

As a mom of three littles, I'm busy.  Some days I'd even used the word "overwhelmed." And its often hard to find time for an extended quiet time.  By that I mean, my quiet time may be an hour long, but it will be broken up into 15 minutes here, then breaking up an argument, changing a diaper, bandaging a skinned knew, cuddling a crying toddler, 10 minutes there, then getting a snack for a hungry baby, finding a kindergartener's lost shoe, cleaning up the apple juice on the floor, etc.  That's why books like "Pressing Pause" are so helpful!
