20th Birthday, Peplum Top And Complaining

I will let you in on a little secret-I'm a complainer! God's convicted me lately on this. It can be easy to pick out the reasons why our lives are less than perfect! I don't have this, so and so has more ______, the list goes on and on! But the truth is, my life's pretty darn good! So the next time I find myself complaining about a circumstance God has placed me in, I'm going to count my blessings. I truly do believe any circumstance has something to be thankful for, even if it's just the fact that you're still breathing air! I take so much for granted, maybe it's time to start realizing that fact. 
On the top of my grateful list is being able to fit this shirt! I bought it at forever early this year and couldn't even button it! So I put it away hoping maybe it would fit later- guess what?!? Oh yeah, I'm wearing it-spoilers! ; ) I'm thankful each day for The THM ( way of eating. Not just because I'm smaller, but simply for food freedom! 

Speaking of food freedom....
Made this awesome E 1 serving microwave apple crisp-yum!

I also celebrated my 20th birthday earlier this week! Thought I'd share a few photos:

  15. There are many factors which influenced the development of Modest clothing. Given that its influence pervades our society, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. Crossing many cultural barriers it still draws remarks such as 'I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole' and 'i'd rather eat wasps' from the upper echelons of progressive service sector organisations, who are likely to form a major stronghold in the inevitable battle for hearts and minds.
