Catching Up on My Challenge!

Today is September 26th.  My last post for the challenge was on September 14th!  With traveling and so much happening, I got behind on my challenge.  I refuse to give up!  So, here is a quick catching up of the challenges that I accepted at the beginning of September!

Are you ready?  Here we go:

#15 – What’s In Your Bag? (I actually took a picture the morning of the 15th and that was as far as I got.)

I changed bags last Wednesday to something more Fall looking. I carried this for the past couple of months. I love purses and I have a hard time finding one that feels comfortable to me. Needless to say, I have a closet full of purses!
I don’t like to carry a lot of things in my purse. I like to be able to reach in and get what I need and not have to fumble through a lot of things. I have a wallet, card case, glasses case as I’m needing my reading glasses more and more, gum, Brighton writing pen, always have to have disinfectant wipes, lotion, a makeup bag with various things.
I found this at the bottom of my purse. When I was in Target, I couldn’t resist this and while paying for my things, I told the clerk I would put it my purse to nibble on, on my way home. I forgot about it until now.
All these little things have to be in a bag or I would go crazy looking for it in my purse. Comb, Advil, couple of lip colors, more lotion, chap stick and some papaya enzymes. I think that’s about it! I rarely open this bag. If my purse is too heavy while out and about, I will take this out to lighten the load.

#16 – What is the Real Me vs. the On-line Me? Are they the same or different?

I feel like I’m the same person.  I try to be real and honest in my writing and in person.  I’ll have to admit that writing thoughts out is much easier. I tend to be quieter in person and will give my thoughts and opinions when asked.  (Unless, something is done or said that I think I must voice my thoughts in order to set something right.) With blogging, I’m free to just talk (type) away….

#17 – What is my latest obsession?

I have lot’s of obsessions!  I tend to love everything!  I guess right now, it would be Fall.  I love the colors, the nip in the air and the clothes, oh, the clothes!!!

#18 – Record a Vlog.

I’m just not ready to make a video of myself.  I may try it eventually, but…..nah, not ready!!!!

#19 – What was the best day of my life?

This is a hard one to answer.  I’ve had many days that I look back on as great days!  Of course, the day that I asked Christ into my life!  That was a life changer for sure!  How about the day that I married my Jim, another great day and then when my first baby girl was born 3 years later and then our baby boy 3 years after that.  Oh, and then there was the day that our daughter married her husband and then when our first grand baby was born!  And…four more after that!!!  Can’t forget the day our son married his love.  Can it get any better?  God is so good.  Yes, even when I have bad days, God is still good!

#20 – What is a guilty pleasure of mine?

I love watching a good Hallmark movie!  When one is on, I look forward to settling down and just escaping for a while.  Matter of fact one is coming on tonight.  I have the recorder set.

#21 – My favorite quote.

“Live your life in such a way that when you wake up in the morning, satan says, “Oh no, she’s awake!”

I’m not sure who wrote that, but I love it.  I hope that is so true for my life!

#22 – Give a glimpse of my creativity.

Right now, I’ve been working at decorating our, Hill Country Get-Away, home.  I’m anxious to take you on a tour.



#23 – Invite a guest blogger for today’s challenge.

On this challenge, I will direct you to a post from a few days ago that shared a friend who just published a book.  Click here to read about it.

#24 – What are 5 of my favorite blogs that I read.

I have several blogs that I read, but I’ll try to pick 5.  (I may make a list soon of all the blogs I read.)

Purple Chocolate Home

Elizabeth George


The Ribbon in My Journal

A Wise Woman Builds Her Home

#25 – What are 3 songs that I’m connecting to right now?

As I’m working on this post, we have K-Love playing throughout the house.  I’m going to list the three songs that I’ve loved listening to today.

That Was Then, This Is Now by Josh Wilson

At The Cross by Chris Tomlin

Cast My Cares by Finding Favour

Okay, two more:

#26 – What did I recently read and what is on my Reading To Do List?

Fervent by Priscilla Shirer

I have a very long list of Reading To Do’s.

#27 – What is on my Wish List?

Right now, I’m thinking of the dishes and cookware that the Pioneer Woman has just come out with.

They will go really well in our get-away house!

Okay, I’m caught up now.  I’m back on track and hopefully, I can say that I completed this challenge at the end of September.  Thank you to Bailey Jean of Brave Love Blog,  for giving this challenge.  It has been an eye opener to me in many areas of my life that maybe I will share later.

Enjoy every second of your day!




  1. Good job, Beverly! I’ve been busy with my own 30 day painting challenge, so I know how hard it is to keep up. In fact I’m several days behind now… ;( It’s OK… I still learn so much, and I’m sure you have too.

    I would be embarrassed to empty out my purse right now and photo the contents… Yours looks so nice and neat!

    I had no idea that the Pioneer Woman has come out with a dish and cookware line… Wow!

    Enjoyed reading all about you… <3

    1. Karin, I love seeing your paintings that you do! Looking forward to more!!!
      You will love the dishes and cookware that Pioneer Woman has out. You must check it out!
      Hmmm…maybe…. I should challenge you to show your purse and all that’s inside of it! 😉
      Thanks for stopping by!
