Modest Monday and a Link Up!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We had a really good day spent with family. My dad and step-mom drove from out of town to spend the day with us, and it was nice to be at my mother-in-law’s house!

My mother-in-law was amazing and offered to let all my children spend the night (well, minus Sophia who still exclusively nurses!). She knows that the Black Friday weekend is super busy for me with working online and I was so grateful that she offered to let them stay.

I spent Friday snuggled on the couch with the laptop and Saturday I cleaned the house while popping in on the computer. :) I put away all the fall decorations on Saturday and we came home on Sunday after church and put up our Christmas decorations. It was fun getting to do it together as a family!

You know how life changes so quickly with young children around? I had on an outfit that I haven’t worn on the blog in quite awhile, and was about ready to take pictures of it for today. We tried giving Sophia sweet potatoes for the first time, and somehow I managed to drop some on my dress. Did I mention it was white with blue flowers? Very white. And very stained from the sweet potatoes. Sophia didn’t even like the sweet potatoes. She started screaming after 3 bites!

Since my outfit was ruined I took a picture of our oldest daughter instead. I love this dress on her. She was able to wear it last year, and it’s the only dress that still fits her this year as well. I found it on ThredUP, and it was a great find!

A modest, pretty dress for a young girl!

When you have children that want to decorate the tree (yes, our christmas tree is small!) it can look rather interesting. 😉 It got fixed after the pictures. :)

Mini Flexi Clip

She is wearing one of my favorite flexi clips in a mini size. We use these often to pull her hair back for a quick hairstyle. This is the Sweet Valentine clip, and it’s been brought back for a very limited time.

There are a few Cyber Monday deals I wanted to share with you, so I’m just going to include them here instead of doing separate post!

Deborah & Co. Black Friday Sale!

Today is the last day of our Black Friday sale! I guess technically today it’s our Cyber Monday sale. :) We added a brand new item for Cyber Monday! I’ve wanted to add a modest workout skirt to our store for years now, and we finally are!

Modest Black Workout Skort

This modest, knee length workout skirt is perfect for working out at the gym, running, jogging, playing sports, all sorts of activities that a regular skirt will not work for!

Knee length black skorts

This skirt has attached shorts underneath the skirt part!

It is made from moisture-resistant, medium-weight stretch fabric. I’m very impressed with the quality of this athletic skirt! You can pre-order this modest athletic skirt with the sale coupon, and it will be shipping around December 20th.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from the Allen Family! We have so many things to be grateful for this year, and all of you are on our list! I’m humbled to have such fantastic blog readers who continue to come to my little space online.

I’m off to go spend the day with family. My children always put together a Thanksgiving play for us and I’m looking forward to seeing what they have come up! I’ll leave you with a few favorite quotes on Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. ~W.J. Cameron

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
~J.A. Shedd

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. ~Theodore Roosevelt

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. ~W.T. Purkiser
