Did the title of this post give it away?! If not that, then the picture did 😉 So I did a thing haha Last Monday’s blog post I mentioned that November 5 is National Love Your Red Hair Day. I already had an appointment for Tuesday to get my hair colored. Two and a half hours in the salon produced this! I won’t lie, it has taken some time to get used to because it’s much redder and darker than I expected, but I do like it.
Being a red head has always been part of my defining features. It makes me sad that people started to question whether or not I was a redhead. Anyone who has been around a natural ginger knows what to look for I guess. I couldn’t think of a better way to enter the holiday season than to bring back that red color. Thanks Kaci!
In other news, it is finally cold here (Texas cold anyway) and I have been loving my sweaters and knee high boots. Fall/winter is my favorite time of year for fashion so I’m sure you are going to see more posts from me. To be honest, I am really uninspired in the summer. Texas is hot and miserable, who wants to try to look cute when your makeup is going to melt off and your outfit is going to cling to your sweat…not me! Just being real.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is around the corner? Next week to be exact! Goodness I don’t know what happened to 2018. Some coworkers and I were talking about what family Thanksgiving looks like for each of us and it was decided we should all capture the shenanigans and share through our team’s Snapchat haha I said I should vlog the whole day, but the hubs won’t be there and he is my video/tech guru.
As far as menu items and recipes go, this pumpkin cheesecake is still my favorite recipe for Thanksgiving. Give it a try, I promise it will be a winner.
Side notes, if you love fall, you need to get this candle from Bath and Body Works. It’s everything fall wrapped into one beautiful scent.
The hubs is doing well in his new job and is still enjoying it. Lexi is still a bundle of energy (although currently snuggling with me as I write this).
That’s all for now, about to head to The Woodlands for lunch with friends and then dinner with the family. Still celebrating the hubs’ birthday…13 days later (insert eye roll).
Until next post…xoxo Becca
Before getting to this bell sleeve top, yesterday’s message at church was delivered by Coach Matt Deggs. One point that stuck out to me during his message was: there are two types of people in the world; those who are humble and those who are about to be humbled. Your career or title should not be your defining attribute. It can quickly be taken from you.
The message reminded me this life isn’t about me, it’s about what I can do for other people and that is the ultimate definition of servant leadership. You can lead from any position whether you have a title or not. Strive to be honest, faithful, and serve others. I hope my teammates can say those things about me. I truly care about their well being, happiness, and growth. In my line of work there is high turnover, but in the 2-3 years they are with me I hope they feel valued and that I add to their personal and/or professional growth. It’s one of the things I love about working with students too, they grow so much in the time they are with you. I understand I have a responsibility to them as well as the full time staff.
Listen to the full message here.
Now if you are here for the bell sleeve outfit details I have stashed those below. I bought the green bell sleeve top at Marshall’s and can’t find it online now, but I linked a couple similar ones in the widget below. In other news, today, November 5, is National Love Your Red Hair Day! National Love Your Red Hair Day is designed to empower redheads to feel confident, look amazing and rock their beauty. Many people don’t believe I am a redhead, but it’s true! I was born with bright red hair and it has changed colors over the year. Don’t the fair skin and freckles give it away!?!? 🙂
