Learning to love yourself.

A few weeks ago I got contacted by an amazing brand to show their products, basically sponsoring me to wear their clothing.
I was a bit surprised.

 

We are in contact with a few children’s brands who want my beautiful daughter to wear their items, but that girl is beautiful, me in the other hand I’m super conscious and I would even say I lack self confidence to do such a thing.
  I talked to my husband about it and decided to do it!
I followed through with the message and let it be, thinking that they were not going to send me anything.
Little did I know that a week later I received their item. Insert the cute emoji shock face!
Their product fit like a glove, it was amazing and the fabric is super silky, but I’ll leave the actual review for another post.
As I looked for ways to style it and wear I started to feel better about the opportunity I was given. Took the pictures, but I critiqued them up and down.

They were, and are good quality pictures and are beautiful but I didn’t feel confident enough to show them.

 

I can even go on and tell you my exact thought when I saw them. “I’m not a fashion blogger, nor even close to being my girl Laura who can wear a trash bag and look amazing doing so”
One thing that comes with being a blogger is posting selfies and outfit pictures.
I knew this the day I decided to start this and I was opened to new the new things this adventure would bring, but when the time came I failed to do so.
 A few days passed and as I looked at my daughter and her confident self, I looked at how much she feels and looks as beautiful as ever, I know I biased, and for a second thought about this.
Do I want to give her this example? Is this what I want to show her about her body? She has many of my genes and do I really want to pass my insecurities on to her. Even at an early age they see us. They copy our every move, our every action, and I don’t ever want her to feel insecure about anything.
This is something that as women we go through and we battle it from being a teen to adulthood, and is something that I may not put an end today but I want to do it little by little and step by step.

I want to feel good about who I am and feel confident enough to post a so called selfie and an outfit I loved.

I want to be me, and my true self ,is self conscious but I don’t want to lack of confidence to defy me. To stop me, to suppress all that I can be and then I had my “aha” moment.
The God of the heavens, the creator of everything beautiful created me, simple and plain old me.
He created me beautiful.
He called me His and as my faith leads me to believe He made me beautiful.

Today I invite you today to show yourself, your true you, to take that picture, to wear that outfit or do whatever it may be that has been holding you back

Think of that little person that looks up to you. Think about our creator we are his special work. So YES you are beautiful and so am I.
So go show it off. Show God’s work.

Weekend Recap and celebrating our guy!

Well it Tuesday but…. Let’s say its Monday!
We had a busy weekend and the 3.5 hours of sleep Sunday night was just the tip of the iceberg.
Don’t know if it was the teething and the fact that allergens are super bad in Texas now, hence my voice being gone for more than a week, but we made it to Tuesday!

Getting back to the weekend, it was daddy’s birthday and man did we have fun!
  We love this man so much and he makes our life so much better.   
 
We are super BLESSED to call him ours!
He is older and wiser and definitely the love of our lives.
   
On Saturday we ran some errands and of course we had to get coffee while we looked for daddy’s gift. He ended up changing his mind about what he wanted, so we looked for something else!
 

 That night we had my in-laws over for a fun birthday dinner and for the first time ever no cake baking on my part! Husband wanted a cheesecake for COSTCO!
A first in our house! 

Sunday (his actual birth day) morning we had big plans of going to the water park and spending some time with some friends but the weather had other things in mind! It rained and rained so we went out to eat breakfast with the family and did some more shopping! Our kind of fun!!

All in all we had fun and enjoyed spending some time with our guy!
He will be having surgery this Friday so this time was amazing. I can’t believe that I met him 10 years ago and he is even more handsome now!
We love you daddy and can’t wait to spend more years with you!
