I'm not sure I can convince my baby (now almost 16) to dress up like a Veggie, but what fun we would have had with this type of event when she was younger.  Just how exactly does one create the head for Junior Asparagus?  On second thought, maybe it would be easier to dress as one of the French Peas.......

Dove Awards 2014: Best of the Best

In the full spirit of disclosure, this post may contain affiliate links, which means I may get a commission (Maybe even enough to buy a cup of coffee, but probably not one at Starbucks!).  I only recommend products from companies that I use or already love myself, so I know you'll be in good hands.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  



Photo: Kari Jobe creates an epic worship moment at the Doves! Tune into TBN Trinity Broadcasting Network this Sunday night 10pm ET/9pm CT/7pm PT to watch the #DoveAwards! You can also watch online at tbn.org and on the TBN App!
Getting the chance to attend the Dove Awards was most definitely a dream come true. While there are many exciting stories I can tell about my adventure, I want to keep this post brief and encourage you to watch the televised episode of the Dove Awards tomorrow night on TBN.  

I left home on Tuesday morning excited and a bit nervous.  I headed to Nashville to check in to my hotel (completely alone for the first time in my thirty-something years).  I then had some time to try to relax and then get "prettied up" for my big night.  

I then made my way to Lipscomb University to find a place to park and meet up with my fellow bloggers.  Representing Family Christian and attending the Dove Awards gave all of us a broader common ground than some other bloggers I have met before.  Not only did this group of ladies "get it" when I quickly typed messages for social media while carrying on conversations but they also understand the work involved with blogging and the incredible blessing of being able to share your faith while you write .  As much as I enjoyed the music and the star-watching at the Dove Awards, I also truly appreciated getting to know my nine new friends.

Once we made our way into the arena, I was immediately impressed with the quality of our seats.  It blessed my socks off to even be in attendance and I would have been happy with a seat in a far corner of the nosebleed section somewhere, but we were two rows off the floor and very close to the left side of the stage.  

When I thought about the Dove Awards and all those who would be preforming and presenting, there were some names that excited me more than others. I have attended a variety of Christian music concerts over the past 25ish years, so there are almost always groups that I have seen perform . I tend to get excited for the ones I haven't and the new groups, but this time I was excited about both old and new.  I had seen Newsboys, Mandisa and For King and Country before but they all were fantastic.  I was most excited about seeing Kari Jobe since I had never seen her perform live.  She did not disappoint! If you do not get a chance to see her on television, visit my Youtube and check out my video, even though it is a bit jumpy since I couldn't stand still.  

The list of presenters for the Dove Awards was a veritable who's who of Christian Music. Just being in the same room as Amy Grant, Pat Boone and Bill Gaither was an amazing experience.  One of the best parts of my seat was being able to watch Bill and Gloria Gaither as they watched the various performers.  

As if the experience of going to the Dove Awards was not amazing enough, I had several tweets get re-tweeted during the night and the next day by some amazing names.  
Not only did the Dove Awards official account share some of my photos and tweets, but photos and comments I had written were shared by Karen Kingbury, Homecoming Magazine and Gaither Music Group!  To say that I was excited by this would be an understatement.  

The Dove Awards featured everything from Classic Southern Gospel, Contemporary Christian music, Rap/Hip-Hop, Bluegrass, Gospel, and Praise-and-Worhip. I put together 15 pictures in a collage to try to convey with incredible variety of the night with so many different styles of music all being used to praise one God.  

Be sure to check out the Dove Awards on Sunday at 9pm CST on TBN. If you do not have TBN on your television, you can watch online or on any mobile device on TBN.com I'll be watching on my couch with my family so they can experience a portion of the blessing that I received by attending live.  Thanks again to Family Christian for the opportunity and to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who make all things possible!

I'm a Make Up Mess

In the full spirit of disclosure, this post may contain affiliate links, which means I may get a commission (Maybe even enough to buy a cup of coffee, but probably not one at Starbucks!).  I only recommend products from companies that I use or already love myself, so I know you'll be in good hands.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  

As I started getting ready for the Dove Awards on Tuesday night, I dumped all the makeup I had packed onto the counter at my hotel.  

I realized I am a "make up mess".  

When I started wearing makeup my cousin took me to a local Mary Kay lady and I was outfitted with lots of cute little pink compacts.  

Years later, I still use some Mary Kay and some Clinique and some Ulta and some of whatever I can grab at the local drug store.  

Obviously I am not very "brand loyal" when it comes to my makeup; I like what I like and that which I can afford.
