half of 30

oh my goodness
today marks the
fifteenth day
i am now half way
through my 30 for 30 remix!

last night my girls put on
a talent show at our church
to help raise funds for the two of them
to go to Africa on a mission trip

it was very succesful
they had a great turnout
and with last nights
free will offerring
they are at their half way mark
for raising funds
so they are pretty excited about that!

there were many performers
a 2nd grader from our church played the keyboard and sang
an 8 year old performed a gymnastics routine
and my daughter had lots of her
 college friends who sang
along with the
middle daughter/son in law duo
and myself!
i felt the many prayers-
i had not done a solo
for a few years and thought i
might be a bit rusty
but, i felt uplifted as i was on stage
and i know i was being prayed for
so thank you to all who offered
them up it helped
i didn't embarrass myself or my family...lol

here is what i wore last night to the
talent show:



the creamy ivory dress is from old navy, purple cardi from the gap, necklaces are thrifted as are my favorite little leopard flats
and underneath i wore some jegging type pants from forever 21

so now we are ready to head back
to church today...
and i am on nursery duty
so usually i don't wear a dress or skirt
we are going to thai food afterwards
to celebrate the youngest daughter along with
one of the son in laws birthdays...
so this is what my day looks like
on day fifteen-


white peasant top, i love this comfy thing...which i thrifted some time ago, the jeans are bootleg from kohls, i am wearing the sweet leopard flats with this outfit and the best scarf ever...is from PARIS!  i purchased this scarf in a little market, on our walk up to the St. Pierre de Montmarte! if you know anything about Montmarte it is crazy beautiful...a church that sits on a hill overlooking all of Paris...it was amazing! (google it if you get the chance)
my prayer is that you have a wonderful
& blessed day
spend time being thankful
for the gifts you have been given
i know for me...i have so much to
be thankful for and i give thanks today
for it all!

blessings,
melody-mae

The Talent Show was a lot of fun! and you did a great job with your song! (Amy Grant songs are my songs of choice almost every time I have done a solo) You looked adorable too btw. Sorry to slip out early-- I knew Bruce was finally home after a long day of volunteering in the rain and mud. He was sad to miss the show. Yay for funds raised!!

Montmartre is an amazing corner of Paris. I love the Sacre Coeur! Have you ever heard the song: La Complainte De la Butte? It's featured in Moulin Rouge and is all about the *huge* stairways up to Montmartre.

Sounds like a good weekend indeed!

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh - I've been to that church and know exactly where you mean!!! Yes, that church is so beautiful. There were pantomimes out there on the front steps and the view is spectacular (and I don't use that word very often). LOVE seeing all your great pics and especially LOVE the scarf!
