Over the last few years, something I’ve written and re-written over and over again is my “mission statement” for this blog. And, in a lot of ways, my blog mission statement tends to reflect my life mission statement. LulaRoe arrow print Carly Dress, Root Collective shoes, Journey Lockets necklace (2)

Like all good [blog] mission statements (at least in my humble opinion), they’re ever evolving and ever changing with LIFE. Because, let’s be honest… stuff happens. We change. Life changes. Very rarely are we the same person this year that we were two years ago.LulaRoe arrow print Carly Dress, Root Collective shoes, Journey Lockets necklace (3) So, I believe that it’s good to be focused on our life’s work, but also flexible and willing to shift when life is telling us to shift. LulaRoe arrow print Carly Dress, Root Collective shoes, Journey Lockets necklace (4)

I recently rewrote my mission statement for this blog and, for some reason, I’ve never really shared it before. I don’t know why, to be honest. Maybe you as a reader care… maybe you don’t… but I wanted to share it with you today because I want you to know the heart, soul, and purpose behind WHY I do this blog and why I love this weird job of mine.

So here you go…

Still Being Molly is a life and style blog that exists to inspire women to walk joyfully and confidently in purpose, and to know that they were created with a purpose for a purpose.

I believe that ALL of us were created in the image of God and that we ALL are meant for great things while we are on this planet… and I want to show you (yes, you) that you are AMAZING and you don’t have to pigeonhole yourself or limit yourself or doubt yourself.LulaRoe arrow print Carly Dress, Root Collective shoes, Journey Lockets necklace (7) Look, this is something I struggle with DAILY. I still don’t have it figured out… not even close. I fail CONSTANTLY and regularly because I’m human and I’m flawed. That’s called growth. Or maturity… or something.

Amos is Seven Months Old! (1)

Our sweet Amos James turned SEVEN MONTHS OLD last week!! I can’t believe it. I mean, I can, but I can’t – all at the same time. Same story, different month.

This month he has just really taken off and his little personality and RED HAIR is getting stronger and more visible. He’s the best, snuggliest, sweetest boy and we just love him to pieces.

Here’s his 7 month update!! 🙂

Three Tips for Getting the Most Out of Baby's Wardrobe with Carter's (3)

Nicknames: Mr. Man, dabeeo, sweet man, sweet boy, Monkey Man, Buddy, Buddy RoeAmos is Seven Months Old! (3)

Sleep: Honestly, pretty terrible. We did have one totally fluke night where he slept from 11pm – 8am, but that was a one and done. He’s still up almost 3-5 times a night. Mama tired.

Eating: So, we are doing baby led weaning again with Amos (just like we did with Lilly), and he has absolutely ZERO interest in food. We have tried a couple of things, but he basically thinks it’s the worst ever. So… for now, we are just sticking to nursing. He still nurses 4-6 times a day and at night. It’s cool… I’m cool with it. Totally. Haha!

You guys, I didn’t blog on Friday. Some of you are thinking, “Really? SO?” Well, the thing is, I almost NEVER skip a post. Ever. I’m a planner and I pretty much plan out all of my posts at least 30 days in advance. I’m crazy. It’s just how I work best…

And I had a post planned for Friday.

But life happened…

The Subscription Box for All You Paper & Stationary Lovers | V. Paperie Review (1)

Raise your hand if you’re like me and you LOVE a gorgeous notebook, thank you note, journal, or set of stationary.

Hands raised?

Yeah, me too.

I don’t know if it’s because I was an English major in college or because I’m a creative person by nature or just a lover or people or a combination of all of those things… but I LOVE a personalized, handwritten note. I LOVE taking notes in a journal. I LOVE “kicking it old school” and ditching the ways of digital and just putting literal pen or pencil to paper.

So, when Vanessa emailed me to tell me about her new monthly subscription box, V. Paperie, I legitimately was like, “YASSS GIRRRRL!!!” 

The Subscription Box for All You Paper & Stationary Lovers | V. Paperie Review (2)

What is V.Paperie?

V. Paperie is a monthly subscription box filled with beautiful paper, stationary, cards, journals, etc. all done by Vanessa! Everything is BEAUTIFUL and so well designed. It’s PERFECT for the person who just loves to have stuff like that on hand, especially seasonal cards for birthdays, thank yous, holidays, etc.

How does it work?

Each box goes out on the first of the month. You can pay $25 a month or prepay 3- or 6-months at a time (and you get a little discount if you pay in advance). Also, use the code “WELCOME10” for 10% off your first box! Shipping is ALWAYS free! And if you’re month-t0-month, you can cancel at any time… otherwise, you can cancel once your prepaid months are up. 🙂

You can also give it as a gift!! This would be the SWEETEST gift idea for the paper loving friend in your life!

Anyway, I wanted to share with y’all what I got in my September V. Paperie box!

It’s called “It’s Time to Focus” –

September Stitch Fix Review Unboxing

Another month, another Stitch Fix review! This month, I asked my stylist to send me pieces that would transition well to fall and winter and I also told her to send me something fun and/or edgy!

Check out what Kimberly J. sent me this month, what I thought, and what I kept! Also, be sure to read to the end for a really cool Stitch Fix announcement!

Skies are Blue “Delaine Belted Shirt Dress” – Size XL – $68

Stitch Fix Review #33 - Skies Are Blue "Delaine Belted Shirt Dress" - Size XL Stitch Fix Review #33 - Skies Are Blue "Delaine Belted Shirt Dress" - Size XL

I know this is a SUPER popular dress among SO many Stitch Fix users… it comes in a couple different colors and is really flattering. So, why didn’t I keep it?

Well, for one, it was just a HAIR on the short size for me. I typically like my dresses to hit right at the knee or below it. I realize it’s not actually that short, but I just don’t like above-the-knee dresses (for the most part).

Second, it was also just a hair tight in the shoulders and so I didn’t feel super comfortable in it.

Third, it’s a brand that I don’t know a lot about as far as their manufacturing goes and since the dress didn’t fit into the “30 Wears” category, I couldn’t justify keeping it.

I think it’s a SUPER cute dress, just not for me this time around. 🙂
