wiww~ blog sugar weekend wear

i'm linking up with my s.i.l., lindsey
{who i love.  a whole lot}
for another edition of wiww.
pleated poppy


i stepped out of my wardrobe comfort zone 
and into my 
i-wish-i-could-pull-that-look-off  
zone this week, 
and wore skinny jeans most days with cowgirl boots. 
{i am from the "cowboy capitol of the world," and should be able to pull that look off right?}
BUT,
you won't know whether i pulled it off or not
because i didn't get any pix.

i'll just have to wear the same outfits i wore last week this week and wiww them next week.
{did you get that?}
okay enough about what i wore that i didn't take pix of. 
here's what i did wear and who i wore it with
{because i got to be with some amazing people this week}

i wore this dress w/ these shoes.
to have dinner with my friend, beth, friday evening.
{melanie, beth, and i at "big emily's" wedding in 2007}

beth  lives in the middle of cali.,
and generously allowed me to crash at her place friday on my way to blog sugar. 
we snuck away from her darling family and had dinner together at p.f. changs.
yummmmy. 
but even more delicious than our dinner was our conversation.
we talked about God the entire time.
{sorry mr. chang for occupying our table 3+ hours} 
God alive and moving.
{chills}
it was so good for my soul, 
and the perfect start to kick off my blog sugar weekend.

shoes- old navy

this photo from our morning together sums up the entire weekend for me

EVERY SINGLE  woman i spent this sweet weekend with
inspired me
by the ways they
intentionally
SHOW UP FOR LIFE.

they embrace who God has uniquely created them to be
in their blogs, 
then use their blogs
for His BIG glory.

i'm realizing that i too need to embrace who God has 
uniquely created me to be.
 that i need to
SHOW UP
for whatever it is He wants to do here
at
Victory Rd.
for
His Glory.

Wow! What an awesome post! I can tell you had a wonderful time. Loved your Blog Sugar outfit. My favorite was the one with the grey(?) jacket, black shirt, jeans and black boots.
