{Day 86}

Two weeks, two weeks!!!!!  There are SO many emotions going on in my heart…I mean I have been wearing this dress since the first of May! Will I even know how to dress after this?!?!?  Just kidding, but you see my point.  I started out with this project being terrified to push the “publish” button on a post because *gasp* somebody might READ it…Now I have just the opposite feeling…what if no one continues to read (this blog shall continue) and I send this out to a void.  In the long run it really doesn’t matter.  What matters is I have been connected with some amazing people over the last 86 days…YOU! I love reading your comments and knowing people all over the world are coming together to do something incredible.  You are raising money for orphans and it is crazy beautiful.  We have helped open three orphan homes and are helping feed and educate children who need us.  THANK YOU!! You are making a difference.  xxx

Figuring out how to make this dress a top gave me a feeling of triumph. 😀  Did I mention I’m easily pleased?

    It looks great with jeans!

    (Although — where are you that you can wear jeans when the rest of America is dying in this blistering heat???)

    Super cute, Elaini! This is really nice as a top, and the pink accents are perfect. I, too, like the soft, bubble effect. You’re doing an awesome job, and your stick-to-itiveness is admirable. “The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.” Run for the children. Let the Almighty set your course, and it will be well with your soul.

    Such a cute outfit! I love those pink shoes and the fact that you could make your dress into a top! Lovely. I am sure you have learnt so much from this journey of faith, and it’s exciting for me to see how God is working in it too!

    • misselaini July 27, 2011 at 8:11 pm #

      I’m glad you like it. 🙂 I was so happy to wear pants. Not leggings but real pants!
      Yes it has been quite a journey. I’m sure I’ll be blogging about that after the 100 days….
      God is doing exciting things through all of you for these precious children!

    I love the pink shoes! Are they as comfortable as they look?

    • misselaini August 2, 2011 at 11:32 pm #

      I love them too! They aren’t something I would normally buy but I’m glad I did because I wear them quite often. They are comfortable. 🙂

    I adore your sweet pink ballet flats. Could you share where you purchased them?

    • misselaini August 3, 2011 at 9:02 pm #

      Aww thank you Di. I bought them years ago at Ann Taylor Loft. I couldn’t pass up those bows or the amazing price. 🙂
