Ryan & I have enjoyed our time visiting with my parents in LA for Christmas. We ate jambalaya, gumbo, & some other cajun favorites and are looking forward to getting back into our “normal” healthy eating routine again.
Christmas Eve we went to East Bayou as well as Our Saviors. East Bayou was the church i grew up in, but haven’t attended in several years, and Our Saviors is a church we really enjoy visiting when we are in town. We shared in the Lords Supper and the service was really great.
I am praying that in 2013, I learn to stop sweating the small stuff. For the most part i am pretty easy going, but it is just certain things that get under my skin and i really allow them to affect my mood and attitude. I really want to learn to stop letting things bother me that in the long run don’t matter and learn to find joy and be thankful for each day more and more.
For Christmas Eve i wore a super classy dress from ZARA that i got on sale for 20.00! I love this dress. It looks like a million dollars, but didnt cost that much! Fancy on a budget.
Christmas morning, my mom and i got all dolled up, even though we were just having gumbo at the house, and snapped a quick pic! My mom is so pretty.
