It's a tradition in Texas to take yearly spring photos in the bluebonnet fields. We found a nice patch, despite the drought last year. Here's the pic of me & hubby.

I have been a fan of Sara’s Blog for about a year, finding it through a mutual blogging buddy. From deals to easy, tasty recipes, Budget Savvy Diva’s got the goods. That is why I was so excited to learn that there was a book coming out and even more excited when I got my hands on a copy of my own.

As with all parent-child relationships, there were some really great things that they instilled in me and some that have become a bit of a roadblock at times. One such case, I came face-to-face with this weekend. I have the hardest time asking for help...with anything. My dad instilled in me not to depend on anyone and if I cannot do it myself then that’s that. For example, when we didn’t have a car, we walked everywhere in lieu of asking for rides from family. Those grocery trips could be a workout. So when I got older, I walked everywhere I went to, or paid for a taxi if I had the money and it was too long of a trip. It was only until I met my boyfriend (now husband) that I began to see that asking isn’t a bad thing. He actually preferred me not to walk and would go out of his way (and his mom’s way) to make sure I had a ride home from class.

I recently read and reviewed "Unglued: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress” Devotional by Lysa TerKeurst, which you can see my post about here. I loved the book so much that I checked out her website for extra resources and came across her "Unglued" themed key tags. I ordered several thinking of family, friends and decided to do a giveaway to go along with the review of the book.
I have been using my key tags for a few weeks and found them very helpful. I attached mine to some ribbon on the outside of my purse for easy access. I find myself repeating some daily and others several times daily. Sometimes, we need an extra reminder throughout the day and I can't say enough how awesome these have been for me. I hope they will be for some of you too.
- "If this is the worst thing that happens to me today, it's still a pretty good day." (I say this one over and over the most!!)
- "The one who holds the tongue, holds the power."
- "My feelings are indicators, not dictators."
- "Am I trying to prove that I am right, or improve the relationship?"
I have 5 sets of these key tags to give away to my readers. US only 18 and older. To enter, fill out the form below.
