Favorite Trend

B: Flare and bell bottom pants/ jeans. Though in my opinion they have never gone out of style they made a big comeback in 2015 which I loved because it made finding a great flare jean much easier.

H: Mine would have to be plaid tops I know this trend hit most women’s closets through out the year and it has been around but I just love them! I love that you can make them fit different styles from rocker with a tee and jacket and converses to country knee boots with a fabulous hat!

Favorite Purchase

B: My custom Warbonnet hat for sure.

H: IPhone 6! I’m obsessed with the camera! Way better than my iPhone 4s lol! Praise the Lord! 

Favorite Personal Outfit

B: Hmm I’d have to say my black velvet bell bottoms with a black blazer over a denim shirt and graphic tee. With great accessories of course.

H: It’s a hard one for me but I’m gonna have to go with my striped skirt, leopard cardigan and Southern Honey Roam shirt that I wore in Vegas! I decided to try something new and mix prints and much to my surprise I liked it and the outfit was a hit with others!

Favorite Scripture

Favorite Store

B: Since I don’t have much time to shop anymore I mostly shop online. I probably shopped the most on Asos this year.

H: Amazon.com because well when you live way out of town prime has got your back!! Lol

Favorite Meal

B: This one is tough. Possibly since I travel and eat out so often I end up craving home cooking a lot. So I’d say my own carne asada tacos or my spaghetti.

H: So hard would have to be s toss up between Bobbie’s spaghetti and my big sisters meatloaf! Gotta love comfort food especially when made from one of your favorite people!

Favorite Place You Traveled

Running The Race

I have started and deleted this blog post at least 10 times now. I definitely love posting my blogs but never want to force them because I want them to come from the heart. One of the best pieces of advice I was given when I started singing was if the song doesn’t move you then you can’t move people listening to you. So I just have tried to carry that into my blog posts. Being out here in Vegas can definitely get a little hectic for sure, sometimes I wonder how we all always survive it! Haha! But I think you always remember the fun stuff not the hectic ins and outs of being here. Lots of people who are here the whole time have their own schedules being either a vendor, a contestant, a contestant’s spouse or like us just here to help people when they need it and help our dear friends with church. Along with hectic schedules sometimes comes exhaustion which then can lead to struggles if your not staying filled up. (With His word) I actually hit that mode the last couple of days. It just kind of happened I tend to give out so much without thinking I forget to stop, take time for myself and get filled back up with His word and rest. I was so blessed to get to watch my nephew for 2 days and while he was literally the best little guy ever. When watching a kiddo your always on guard and trying to help make sure all their little needs are met. Which leads me to say I have so much respect for NFR Rodeo Moms! I always have anyway but gained even more after these coupe of days of watching our sweet little cowboy! To be honest I’m not sure how they stay sane by the end of round 10! Haha! Between chasing kids, being there for their husbands, running here and there and now trying to stay on their A game in the fashion department, holy cow it wears me out just typing it out haha! Being one of those moms is most defiantly not for the faint of heart! I was so exhausted mentally and physically from trying to keep up with my nephew, be there for friends and trying to stay current with fashion and blog posts and running here and there. I was missing out on staying full of God! I wanted to give up and really just wanted to quit everything I had been doing. Then I went to the source! Sunday church! Where Alisa Cooper wife of Clay O’Brien Cooper talked about running the race. In Hebrews 12:1-2 it says…

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

What I got out of all that at the moment and what I needed is don’t give up set everything aside to make time with Him, trust in Him and keep pushing through. I just need to pace myself and be sure to take time for myself to fill back up. I most definitely don’t want to give up its not in me to do that. That was my key I was exhausted, because to be honest and real with you right now I wanted to give up and quit this blog. It was the easiest thing to just ditch and keep moving on while out here. Always trying to be different and find different styles of posts from everyone to stay current can be at times really hard. But if it was easy everyone would bring doing it right? So with 2 different posts, 1 completely sweet message and 1 phone call from one of my best friend and a mini cry session to get it out, I then shook it of and continued to push through. I took the time out to fill back up! See we all have struggles is what I am trying to get at and being vulnerable to you at the moment so you know you are not alone. I defiantly don’t want to ever be seen as a whiner or complainer. That is not my style at all! I’m an upbeat and positive person and love being there for each and every single one of my family, friends and now you my readers! I want to inspire others to ultimately be themselves and to know how amazing they truly are!!! So with that I want YOU to know whatever it is your facing take the time to set it aside for just a few minutes and spend some quality time with God. He is your source, He is your rock and He will give you the strength you need to endure what is in front of you! You have to take the time to fill up with Him. We can not give up! We can not quit! He made us to be winners in whatever our goals and strengths are! YOU HAVE GOT THIS!! You are more than an overcomer!! It may not change over night trust me I’m still working on it but it will get better and easier each day. So get it out, cry it out and then rest up, read up and then you will simply light up from the inside out!! Just like the one famous quote says be the light you want to see in this world!! You my sweet reader are a world changer by just being you!! That is ultimately who He created you to be!! So YOU have got this and know I am praying for you! Let’s take a minute…
Lord we thank you right now for the amazing beautiful person reading this post. I pray strength,peace and so many blessings over them. Shower them in your grace and love!! I thank you that they will not quit they will fight and run the race set before them. Fill them up Lord!! In Jesus mighty name we both agree and say Amen!!

Rock what ya got and BE YOU Grace and Stylers!!
