Instead of the Piercing...

I REALLY want a cute little nose piercing but my friends say they look like sparkly boogers. I don't agree with them at all but would rather not have a third hole in my nose. I think going from blond highlights (for the past 8 years of my life) to brown was a very good decision to curb the wild streak in my heart! 
I like to change things and am restricted to the furniture in my apartment staying right where it is because hey its an apartment and it only comes with so many walls. 
I like to change things and cannot put a pedicure into the budget because I still have a car that is not paid for (and a degree for that matter). THAT means that my toenails are painted by me and I have a 'pediegg' that does a pretty good job month after month and only costs $9.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond (without the 20% off coupon). 
I like to change things so I go a few days with eating healthy and feeling great and then ruin it with a stuffed crust pizza that feels great too!
Even better...God likes to change things. He is currently working really hard on me and this word "simplicity" I do not need all of these things that I think that I need to have! 

Matthew 6:19-20
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal."
and besides...
Isaiah 61:10 and 11 says
"I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations."
