#2 Rose Gold Glitter Sneakers

I know these are or were really popular. I tend to doubt how $20 sneakers can be super comfortable to walk in.

I park and walk four blocks to and from work everyday so I needed to find some sneakers for walking. My feet are small. I wear size 5 or 5 1/2.

I went to Target to buy sneakers, but they do not carry my size. I ordered these rose gold sneakers. They are really comfortable!

Bought them through Jane.com

(This website is a resellers’ website like Zulily. Deals come and go. These sneakers are a popular item and are sold frequently by different resellers or boutiques.)

Hope y’all had a great week!

Until next time…

A Lesson from Stryper

There are just some days when God uses certain songs to speak to my soul (He knows I love music!). Today was one of those days.

I had gotten through a long hard day at work. As I walked out the door (end of the work day), I found myself in a funk.

Why was I feeling this way? I don’t know. Yes, I had a hard day at work. My definition…A hard day, in my opinion, is when you get lots of good work done (accomplish what you need to for that day), but you may have made a mistake or two.

I was letting this work day weigh me down on me like a sack of bricks!

My routine before I pull out of the parking lot at work is to turn on whatever I am going to listen to on my iPhone, start the car, and drive home. Today, I wanted to listen to my music. I have my different playlists I create on iTunes. The one I have been listening to the most is my 89.7 Powerfm playlist. I made sure that ‘To Hell with the Devil’ by Stryper was on it.

Driving down the freeway, it was the second song that came on (purely God’s timing!). While the intro was playing I realized the sole reason I was in this funk was only because of the Enemy. He was using this hard day and trying to turn it into a miserable one.

I just had to laugh!! I cannot believe I fell for His schemes. It is so easy to get sucked in, isn’t it?

So thank you so much Stryper! That song spoke to my soul today.

Thankfulness

A lot has happened since last time I wrote my Gilmore Girls’ blog post. Big and exciting news!

Let me start at the beginning, I am so thankful to have found a great church to be plugged into. I love how friendly everybody is, and how encouraging they were to me when I was trying to find a job!

Through networking at church God blessed me with a new job! Woohoo!

These days networking is a huge part of finding a job. If you are in the place I was, applying to jobs everyday, with random interviews, and you are not having any success. Then I encourage you to network like crazy! It is all who you know! Really!

One of the men, at the Alamo Ranch Oakhills Church campus knew a friend who had a company that was hiring technical writers. I had done similar work and had the experience  to get the job. It was the most exciting thing to have received that call back message that asked if I wanted to accept their job offer!

I love the people where I work! Great atmosphere! I learn something new everyday, which I love!

Anyway…

What are you thankful for?

“If you don’t think you have any blessings remember your heart is still beating.” – (Not sure who the author of this quote is but I just love it!)

I am thankful for:

  1. Church
  2. Family and Friends (that did not stop encouraging me when I was unemployed)
  3. Friends I met through church
  4. Networking
  5. A NEW JOB!!! Woohoo!
  6. Parents that pray for me everyday.
  7. My nieces that give me a laugh when I need it via FB.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family or friends or both!

– Bethany 🙂
