Well for me at least. Yesterday was a marked day. I FINALLY OPENED MY ETSY SHOP!!!!!! Can you tell I am excited??? I have been working on accomplishing this dream for almost a year now and I am so ecstatic to finally be here! My goal is to eventually have a shop that features all sorts of accessories from rings to pillows to jewelry holders, but for right now it is just hair pieces and magnets. It is called the Glory Accessories Shop. Go on, check it out at :)

This is me featuring one of my lovely hair flowers :) YAY

I have so much fun coming up with new ideas and trying to create pieces that their future buyers will adore. It is definitely a labor of love. Anyways I just wanted to share this exciting announcement with you guys because we are friends and I like to tell friends exciting things :).

Much Love,

Hellooooo change!! Did you notice the new name?? Kinda hard to miss... I have been wanted to change my blog name for a while now because The Hubs and I have been married for over a year now and my old name just didn't seem to fit any longer. But with a new name comes a new header and well, those take me a long time.. So I am finally introducing to you "Everyday Alabama". I chose this name because I am an everyday gal writing about everyday occurrences!! What do you think of the change?? I am loving it. In the next few days I will have yet ANOTHER announcement. I know, I know, change is tough for all of us.. I will wait a couple of days to give you a breather :) Have a great weekend folks!!

Music Monday :)

Happy Music Monday folks!!

A while ago I had Music Monday featuring The City Harmonic and their song "Manifesto". It a really creatively put together and is still great!! Anywho, I just recently got some of the other songs from the same CD and I LOVE IT. They really have such a unique alternative style but they still stay true to having songs that shine their passion for the Savior, which is not a common combo these days. The song that I have been loving most is "Coming My Way". I hope you love it too!!!

On another note, today is my first day of school... yay.. I am super ecstatic about it can't you tell?! No but really I am actually ready to start because this will be my last year before I graduate!!! YAHOOO!!

On top of that I am hoping to have some fun announcements later this week so stay tuned! (No I am not pregnant.. I know some of you thought it! :))

Have a great Monday everybody :)

Mini Closet Makeover

Our apartment is not so big and therefore we utilize all the space aka. pack it in :). Our closet is actually a pretty decent size but we have a lot of stuff jammed in it and there just happens to be no door. I really don't mind the no door thing but it created a bit of a problem because even though its organized it is still a visual overload, something I don't really get along with. So I decided to give my closet a little bit of an uplift.

This is what our closet looked like before. Packed much?
 The whole project only cost me under $15 (woop woop!) and was overall really easy. All the supplies I needed are picture below plus your choice of curtains.

I started by refinishing the bare wood closet pole and making it a pretty, basic white. Then I measured and drilled and attached my closet pole sockets. Next, I put my new curtains onto my nifty new closet pole and put it into place and voila!! There you have it.

I love how it turned out and it totally transformed the overall feeling in the room. It feels so much more relaxing now which I think is the best! The curtains I got are from Ikea for $2 for a pack of two. Now I call that a deal!! They come in an extra long length so you can just trim them to your desired length once you put them into place. 

On another note, its Friday!! I hope you all have a great day and enjoy your weekend. This weekend we are celebrating the Hubs' birthday because he will be back in the Bahamas on his special day. I am excited to celebrate him and make him feel as special as he is to me :)

Much love,

Unrelenting Love

Welcome to Music Monday!!!

I am gonna be short and sweet today :). My pick is one by Jesus Culture, a band I just recently discovered my love for. The song is called "Your Love Never Fails" which speaks for itself.

Reminding you today that his love never fails!! Even when things seem to be rough and you don't know how He could use it for His good, nevertheless, He is right there by our side, doing things we could have never imagined.

Psalms 59:9-10 (Amplified)
"O my Strength, I will watch and give heed to You and sing praises; for God is my Defense (my Protector and High Tower).

May God in His mercy and steadfast love will meet me: God will let me look [triumphantly] on my enemies."

I Love My Hubs :)

This week preseason started for The Hubs. Before he started coaching, we had both been through many preseasons as players. And I thought that was bad!! What I am getting at is he has been VERY busy, like gone all day till 9 busy. But yesterday he took some time out of his day to bring me home these lovelies...

... and reminded me of why I love him SO much!!! All my work for my online class was due yesterday so I had a long, brain crunching day and these flowers lightened it up :) Unfortunately, this is one of two vases that I have in the house and it is obviously the perfect size? Ha, anyways it will just have to do and I don't mind because the roses are just so beautiful!!

Have a great Wednesday friends :)

Hey friends!!!! I feel like I haven't been around for an eternity!! Life has been craaazzzzay around here for the last few weeks. Between traveling, spending time with friends and family, or running errands, our life has been pretty full so I decided it was probably the right time to take a break from blogging. But don't worry, I am back now!! :)

Two weeks ago Tuesday we arrived back to Minnesota. I had already spent quite a bit of time there but will never pass up a chance for more, but I think it was really nice for the Hubs to be able to spend some time there. We saw sooo many friends and family and each day was jam-packed with activities.

Now that we are back in Mobile it doesn't seem as if it has changed much as far as the being busy goes but it is SUPER nice to be back at our place. There is nothing like sleeping in your own bad and having your own dresser!! Ha. Plus it has been nice to see our friends :)

Also, since I know you all have been dying without Music Monday.... ;) I have a feature for you!! Another oldie but goodie. This has been my song lately. "Set the World on Fire" by Britt Nicole. A lot of our time in the Bahamas was spent growing in our relationship with our Savior which was AWESOME and I would be happy to tell you more about... The Hubs and I have really grown and our reaching new levels in our walk and its crazy cool and this song is on my soundtrack of that time. We have a new fire burning in our hearts and this song voices that so well. So just check it out here and bear with me on the cheesy video :).

This song just really gets me going because "Lord with you there is nothing I can't do". Isn't that amazing folks?? He really allows us to do the impossible if we are willing to follow him.

"You are strong enough to take my dreams, come and give them wings. Lord with you there is nothing that I cannot do."

I LOVE the fact that I have someone carefully guiding my path through this life of mine. :)

Have a great start to your week guys!!
