The Lost Art of True Beauty

At the convention in the Opryland Hotel I bought 4 amazing books! The one that I am reading right now is called The Lost Art of True Beauty by Leslie Ludy.

I thought it is really interesting how she says as little girls we always wanted to be a princess dress in flowy, beautiful dresses waiting to be swept off out feet by our knight in shining armor. (well I know I played that. :P) But when you get into your older teens you still have that want to be seen as a beautiful princess, but when we try to find it in today's standards of "beauty" all we get is emptiness.

Something that stuck out to me.
When Christ overtakes a woman's life and transforms her from the inside out, she becomes truly feminine-a picture of elegance, grace, and loveliness blended with sacrificial selfless devotion to her King...
She is enchantingly mysterious, holding her inner life sacred and guarding her heart with quiet tenacity. 

The book is really challenging so far but I am enjoying it very much. 
I am glad I bought it. :)

Opryland Hotel!

So I was just at a home school conference that took place in the Gaylord Opryland Hotel!
It was amazingly beautiful inside! I took about a hundred pictures, but I shall spare you all and just share a few of my favorites! These are all taken inside of the hotel! I had the pizza for lunch, It was a HUGE piece! =D

Nail art decal!

Put some nail polish on a ziploc baggie and let it dry over night. (You can even swirl colors together.) In the morning it should be dry enough so that you can pull it off the bag and punch a design out of the dried polish with a craft puncher. Place the cutouts on your nails, paint over it with clear and instant decal! I don't have the stuff with me right now to try it but as soon as I get home I really want to!

Blog negligence? Not any more!

Soooo I have been very negligent of my blog!
I am hoping to do better even if I just post a little picture. :)
I am still in Tennessee volunteering at a in-home-business.
In four days I will be half way done!
The internet is so bad here! We are in the middle of no where so the signal is not very strong and because of that the internet will be super slow sometimes and others not work at all! Arg. But other than that things are going great!
I have been on my Pinterest account recently, having tons of fun and pinning lots of great things. :)
