Steppin' Out Saturday

This Saturday, I stepped out for a couple of hours to see patients as the on call nurse.  I 
took care of a man who was in an accident very similar to Shawn's and we spent over an 
hour sharing our stories and healing through each other's experiences.  It's amazing 
how much taking care of my patients has comforted me through this time, given me a 
sense of purpose and put things into perspective.  After work, I scooped up my family 
and we spent the evening at my aunt's house for a Saturday night BBQ.  We were able 
to sit back and relax and visit with family, enjoy a home cooked meal and the company
 of those who love us.  
Here's what we wore:

Mama>>Dress: Billabong, Sandals: Soda//Belle>>Skirt and top: Old Navy, 
Flats: Target//Brees>>Dress: souvenir from Hawaii, Sandals: Target
This dress was purchased at a total steal from Michelle at She Said's Shop My 
Closet.  Finding a blogger friend who is the same size as you and sells her barely worn 
clothes for crazy amazing deals: priceless!!!

I asked Isabelle what the "A" on her purse stands for.  She answered, "Awesome.  As in: 
this outfit I picked out is awesome!!".  She never ceases to amazing me...

Olivia you must be the person most at peace with their life whom I've ever come across on the internet.  Do your children sing?  I'm of a similar mindset to you and I'm trying to get my kids to overcome their self-esteem issues by using a  Karaoke Machine and encouraging them to belt out tunes whenever possible.  Do you ever use karaoke?

Olivia said...

Thank you, Rebecca!!  Isabelle loves to sing with her Daddy's microphone in our music room.  We try to encourage her as much as possible.  It sounds like you are giving your kids exactly the kind of self esteem boost they need!
