I'm Back...

Wow, it has been way too long since I have blogged.  I have so many things I can't wait to share - I have truly missed blogging!

One of the reasons I decided to start blogging again is because I am teaching Social Media Marketing {SMM} at SBU - and am loving it!  Tomorrow morning my students' first blog posts are due.  I started reading some of their posts tonight and am truly inspired, so I decided that I wanted to not only start blogging about personal stuff, but I also want to post along with them about SMM. 

So... this week's blogging topic is Facebook {in relationship to marketing}.  

I found an amazing presentation on SlideShare.  Have you ever explored SlideShare?!  It is an amazing site full of resources for so many topics!  I love it.  So check it out if you haven't!

Here is a presentation I found that has some great ideas for businesses on how to create engaging Facebook posts:

I loved how simple, yet effective, these ideas are for businesses of all sizes.  Do you have any other ideas?  Well that is all I have for tonight, but I am excited to share some other things soon!

It has definitely been too long since I last blogged! 

And since my last post, LOTS has happened in my life...

I passed my doctoral exams the first time!!! Yay!!!

I got a new job at WGU Missouri and LOVE it!

I got engaged to this handsome guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

And I MARRIED that handsome guy two days ago - 
he is truly the man of my dreams and love of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God has truly me blessed me this year!  I am so excited to share details in future posts. :)

Philippians 4:13

You can purchases this Scripture Art {here}

This is a verse/promise/truth that I will be relying on a lot the next 70 days. I start my doctoral comprehensive exams. My PhD has been the main reason I haven't been blogging. :(  I am hoping that once I am done with my comps, I can get back to it. I have so much I want to share, but I just don't have the time right now. I just didn't want you all to think that I have completely forgotten about my blog - it's just on a hold until I get through my comps. :) Thanks for your love and support!

Maxi Skirt

One of my sweet students approached me after class a couple of weeks ago and explained that she was making and selling  maxi skirts to raise funds for a mission trip she is going on in January to Guatemala.  I told her I would love one, so she brought her measuring tape to class one day and a few days later she brought me this maxi skirt...

Don't you love it?!

The price of the skirts are $10 plus the price of the fabric.  Such a great deal!

I had her pick out the fabric - just told her I wanted something purple - for SBU of course.

You can go to her facebook page Fearfully & Wonderfully Made Boutique to order one!!

I love mine.

Also, when you think about it please pray for the Guatemala team.
They leave over Christmas break.

 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation." Mark 16:15

{for my faithful readers, I think I am truly ready to get back to blogging - thanks for being patient - I am excited to get back to doing something I love and enjoy}

I received a sweet text from my best friend this morning telling me that she missed my blog.  It made me think that I really do miss it too.  So why am I in this blogging funk?!?  I don't know why to be honest.  But I'm really hoping to get out of it.  Has anyone every experienced this?  Please tell me I'm not alone...  

Anyway... my friend said she especially misses my WIWW posts, so this post is for you Nichole. :)

What I Wore Wednesday

This week is flying by... probably because we didn't have classes on Monday. :) :)

I had someone ask me the other day about how I came up with What I Wore Wednesday.

Well... I didn't!! It is a fun blog link-up at The Pleated Poppy.  I love looking at what other ladies post on Wednesdays.  You should go check it out, too {here}.

So here is today's look for me...

blouse & skirt: the limited 

I NEVER wear my hair up {unless I am working out}. 

But it was rainy this morning, and I was lazy. :)

I walked into my brother's office today and he didn't recognize me at first. lol

Several people have also told me that I look like a ballerina today. 
Not sure how to take that... ha.

My "ballerina" bun... :)

I hope you all have a blessed Wednesday!! :)

It's... FRIDAY!! :)

It has been a great week, but I am ready for the weekend!  I am going to KC this weekend to visit family and friends --- yay!  

Here is a look at what I have been up to lately...

Last weekend two of my friends visited.  We had such a great time!!  One of my friends has a sweet baby girl...

She already loves the biebs... lol

They were still in town on Monday, so they visited me at work...

Chap and Milli in the new Banner tree house...

We were sleepy this night...

Shopping!! :) Can't wait to pair this shirt dress with tights and boots in the fall and winter. :)

Me and Jake. Love him...

A cute apron always makes me feel way more domestic than I really am... anyone with me?


What can I say?  He loves all sports... :)

Last night Chap and I had a "date". :)

We went to McDonald's {which shows I really love this kid, because I am not a fan of McD's}...

He was one happy boy... ice cream and a toy...

After McDonald's we went to the first SBU football game...

We found Payton...

And continued to be silly...

How was your week?  Any big weekend plans?

What I Wore Wednesday {lace, coral, & floral}

I honestly didn't mean to rhyme in the post title, but when it happened, I left it. :)

This summer my outfits consisted of colored shorts and a plain/neutral tee or nike shorts and a workout tank.  And I loved every minute of it.  :)  At the same time, I have enjoyed "dressing up" again this week.

lace top: walmart :)

coral/floral skirt: the limited

flats: new york & company

{I got 8 skirts, including this one, from the limited for $12.99 each this summer!  They were all regularly priced anywhere from $50-$90.  I was a happy girl that day.}

necklace: forever 21

How is your week going so far?  Mine has been great.  Last night I started a new Bible study at my house with a new group of SBU students {ladies}.  We are going to be studying Lies Women Believe.  I can't wait to share more about this study on here.  I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! :)
