Coral Completes Me

The title of this blog probably sounds a little bit silly; however, it is the truth. Coral is my happy color.

I love that it’s not too pink. I love that it’s not too orange. I just love that it’s coral. I love how this color compliments every woman. I especially love how this color brightens the myriad of complexions within every ethnicity. CORAL IS THE COOLEST COLOR!!

Coral truly brightens my day when I wear it on my lips, fingertips, or add it to my outfit of the day. If I’m not in the best mood I know I can add a pop of coral to pick me up. I even have coral workout clothes! Well since I’m a housewife, most of my wardrobe is workout clothes, but coral is noted within that collection. I seriously think I burn more calories when I work out in coral. Okay, as much as I’d like the end of that sentence to be true, it isn’t. But a little embellishment doesn’t delete my feelings that CORAL IS THE COOLEST COLOR!!

Coral is my happy color.

Coral completes me.

Mrs. & Mom: Somebody Needs Me

Just saw this awesome post and definitely had to share it. The last three sentences had me in tears.

As I am writing this entry I realized that I haven’t had a full night of rest all week due to a teething infant as well as a sick #1 and husband. My last uninterrupted shower was on Sunday and I might need to invest in a good eye cream.

I didn’t work this hard in the secular world!

Either way, I love my job as wife and mother. I find joy in every moment. I sneak in time for me here and there via my various hobbies. I’m even okay with the “so you’re just a housewife” comment said to my face and the “she just doesn’t want to work” said behind my back.

I’m grateful for the career of Mrs. & Mom!

I’m my own Nail Tech

So, it all started after I was given the nonreturnable gift of fungus from a nail salon. This happened not once, but twice! When I went to the nail shop with the SUPER WACKTASTIC GIFT OF FUNGUS I was blamed for it both times. The first incident the tech just filed away at the rotten acrylic and tried immediately infill it. The second time occurred soon thereafter and I decided not to return.

Now, of course this fungus tragedy might not be enough for you to quit nail salons all together, but for me it was. This occurred after I’d started to pay attention to the cleanliness of the salon. Don’t get me wrong, the salon was not particularly “dirty” and their practices were that of any other nail business I’d visited since I was 12. I just realized that I preferred a higher level of cleanliness.

If I see you frown up at the fungus on a person’s toes, HOW DARE YOU roll your chair to me and use the same files on my toes. Ladies, don’t act like you haven’t seen that happen.

What about the cuticle oil container? How many cuticles has this oil brushed touched? How many were bleeding? <– Don't act like you haven't been nicked by the hand file. And, what about that hand file? How many people have been nicked? How much blood is on it?

Oh, let's not forget the countless times I've been burned by the nail drill. Being burned by the nail drill refers to the warm/hot and stinging sensation you receive on your nail beds. You do know that you aren’t supposed to be burned by the nail drill, right.

Finally, I should mention how my natural nails would look like a train ran over them once the acrylic was removed. All those lines embedded and the ridges left from horrible filing with the electric drill. My natural nails were so thin and fragile and my nail beds were super sensitive. And most times I would remove the old acrylic and get a new set hours later. <–HORRIBLE DECISION It took a long time to nurse them back to health, but I did.

Now ladies, don’t leave me crazy comments about how I can’t say my horror stories are indicative of every nail salon. First, because I never said that, and second, because I am completely aware that not all nail techs/salons are the same. These are just a few of the incidents that made me choose to invest money into myself and learn a new talent.

My Husband is AWESOME!!!

I’m writing this blog today completely, relentlessly, passionately, and hopelessly in love. I know, can you believe it? I’ve been swept off my feet repeatedly, caressed sweetly, and had soft romantic phrases whispered in my ear. You know the phrases “I just paid the rent/mortgage,” “car note is taken car of,” and “I got off early so I could take you on a date” will do it for any wife. Oh and did I mention the new makeup he bought me? You all know I love opening new makeup. I also want to thank him for the spontaneous foot massages and back rubs he provides. YESSSSSSSSS!! I’m going to keep him.

Top that off with the way this man spends time with his children, wrestles with and reads to them, and takes them to the store so I can take a bath WITHOUT being interrupted!!!! Did I mention how he is a man that I want my sons to be like? Oh and I can’t forget the part about how he prays for us, teaches us the word of the Most High God, and works diligently in the kingdom. He is a bible based preacher that tells the truth, lives what he teaches, and is not a double minded. YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Seriously, I’m going to keep him.

He is my awesome husband, Kevin K., and I’m so glad to have him in my life. I honestly don’t know what I would do without him. I’m so glad that God prepared me for him. He makes me better. My husband is AWESOME!!

Now, don’t dare “get it twisted,” he has his faults. He leaves his laundry on the floor like most husbands and he leaves the toilet seat up like all men. Both are super serious offenses, punishable by an abundance of attitude and nagging. But even though my husband is an “average joe” he has potential in him that is changing the world. How? He changes the world by loving his wife as Christ loves the church. He changes the world’s future by raising Godly children that are comfortably in their creation role and know how to live a balanced life. That’s why my husband is AWESOME!!!

Wives, I implore you to take a moment to think about your husband and write down all the reasons he is awesome. No matter what stage or season your marriage is in there is a reason to be grateful. Whether you are in, coming out of, or headed into a life storm, there are many reasons why your husband is awesome. Be grateful that you have someone that you can share your life with. Be appreciative of the growth that you’ve seen in yourself and in your spouse throughout your marriage. God is faithful and he is able to do all the things that he promised in his word for our marriages. We trust him with our children so we should trust him with our spouses and ourselves. Only the power of our Sovereign God can create awesome husbands, wives, marriages, and families. My God is AWESOME!!!

To hear more about my excitement for holy matrimony and The Vow Challenge check out my latest video.

Remember your vows, reapply them, and make them guaranteed. God’s past faithfulness ensures that your future is secure. YOUR MARRIAGE IS VICTORIOUS.

And it is so, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Make this week triumphant,
