Things I Love Thursday: Cowgirl Boots

Mommy and Me Boots

I couldn't take this picture and not blog about's just too cute.

It's also my tribute to Pioneer Woman as she just so happened to write about her favorite boots today as well. Read all about it here.

For today's Things I Love Thursday, I'm crazy about Cowgirl Boots...mine and my daughter's matching pairs to be exact.

I searched high and low for my pair, which I have vowed to wear everyday for the next five years just to get my money's worth out of them. And oddly enough, I spent almost as much time looking for Emma's boots as well...stores just don't sell a lot of toddler boots these days. But with family pictures coming up, I just had to get her a pair like mine!

She thinks they are pretty cool, too. Aside from her crocs, they might be her favorite pair of shoes ever. A girl after my own heart!

Now if we could only convince Daddy to get some....

Something tells me these boots would be up and doing the Boot Scoot and Boogie on their own before that ever happened!

I can always dream.

For more on what others are lovin' this Thursday, check out the Diaper Diaries! And tell 'em Kelli sent cha!

Wordful Wednesdays: Whatcha Reading?

Emma's Quiet Time

Here is Emma reading her Bible.

I think it is so amazing that without any prompting whatsoever, my 16 month old daughter walked over to her book nook today, grabbed her story book Bible and proceeded to sit down in her chair and look at it.

There's no doubt that that was the first book she was drawn to because we read from it last night before bedtime. But watching her made me think how I too need to have the heart of a child when it comes to God.

Emma loves looking at the pictures which in her Bible translate God's Word. In the same way, I need to be excited about the stories told and lessons learned when I read and am engaged in Christ's message.

Too often life gets in the way and I don't take time to be still and listen to what God has to say to me, through prayer and/or Scripture. Yet I am the only one suffering the consequences of not living in relation to Him.

How amazing that I can find motivation and example through a toddler.

I think it is pretty awesome of my Almighty to have provided me with such a beautiful reminder to immerse myself in Him through my daughter.
