An Easter Playlist

Hey friends!

It’s definitely been a while since I hopped on the blog! I have been up editing a paper and the idea popped in my head to share some of my favorite Catholic songs as it is officially Easter!

This is a post that means so much to me because I have heard most of these songs since I was a freshman in high school just starting my journey of learning more about how my faith can help others. Every summer starting right after the 8th grade I participated in a week long service trip with my youth group. This was definitely an experience that shaped me and I am lucky enough to be able to come back every year and help other students have that same experience.

1: Do Something by Matthew West

To me, this song sums up everything that being a Catholic means. I don’t even think I could put it into better words than were written, “If not us then who?” There’s no better time to “Do Something” than right now!

It even made an appearance at the Women’s March…

2: Oceans by Hillsong UNITED

Another song I’ve been listening to for years. While I think this version is absolutely beautiful, one year we had a number of people in our group sing this while someone else played the guitar and I always get flashbacks to that night. Such a peaceful memory.

3: When We Pray by Tauren Wells

This is a pretty new song to me, I only discovered Tauren Wells last winter. Kate from Lonestar Southern shared a story and Hills & Valleys was playing and I thought it was so catchy! So I did the only logical thing and started playing him nonstop on Spotify. It was immediately added to my “If Not Me” playlist and the rest is history. 

4: Who Am I by Casting Crowns

This song will forever hold a special place in my heart. It has so many special memories for me. From our summer retreat to playing after our church’s Living Stations of the Cross to my first ever solo. When it came time for our teachers to pick solos one year, my teacher and someone else’s didn’t communicate and we had the same song. All I remember is her bringing out the waterworks so she could keep that song (as much as I like to think I didn’t come from a Dance Moms studio… we had our moments) and so my teacher then gave me the opportunity to pick my own song. A few nights later we were at Stations rehearsal and that song played and something just clicked. So after rehearsal I went home figured out that I could adjust the speed of one or two parts and everything fell into place.

And that’s my round up! This is definitely a little different than my usual posts but I hope you guys like it! If you need any other songs let me know I’d be more than happy to share. Please leave your favorite songs in the comments!

Weekly Style 19

This Weekly Style is so special because it is all about a collection from one of my favorite bloggers! Kate from Lonestar Southern was one of the biggest influences when I wanted to create a blog! Her style is absolute goals and she seems like she has such a great time blogging that I thought hey that might be fun! She is also the reason I found out about Starfish Project, one of my favorite jewelry lines.

Kate teamed up with a store in Dallas called The Impeccable Pig to create the cutest summer line! There are so many cute pieces so lets get started:

How cute is this set?! I love the complete look but I also love that you can mix and match with other pieces in the collection. My favorite part of the top is definitely the ruffle and my favorite part of the bottoms are the tie waist! So adorable!

Picnic Party Stripe Romper

This romper is so sweet! One thing I love about rompers is how easy they are, there’s no time wasted in trying to find a top/bottom because it’s all built in! The details of this romper make it even cuter, I’m obsessed with the red trim and there is a cute keyhole cutout on the back.

Free Flowin’ Pink Dress

This dress is gorgeous! I love the colors and the print! It is so flowy which makes it absolutely perfect for the summer. And the icing on the cake: it looks like it is a little longer in the back! Us tall girls need all the help we can get!

Last is my absolute favorite piece: Little Darling Embroidered Dress

Darling is definitely the perfect description for this dress! I am in love with the sleeves and the embroidery! I am such a huge fan of off the shoulder dresses and everything about this dress is perfect!

To end today’s post I just wanted to share some of the cute statement earrings in the collection:
