Who Would Do Such a Thing || God is so GREAT!

I honestly don't even know how to start this blog post I just know I need to write it as it is happening. Our God is a GREAT God and we are so undeserving of His goodness!

On Sunday, January 6th 2019 my husband, David taught on a Sunday morning to the main congregation at the church we are apart of and work at, which very rarely does another pastor on staff other than our senior pastor, teach. We also announced to the church about our Mexico City church plant that will take place around June of 2019. We were so blessed by how many people came up to us after the services to pray for us and tell us they wish to support us. God's church is amazing when they are wholeheartedly serving Him.

My Favorite Cyber Monday Deals 2018

It is that time of year again and I couldn't be happier! I love this time of year and I LOVE SALES!! It gives you an even better excuse to shop! Black Friday can kind of be overwhelming so I have put together my favorite sales for this years Black Friday to prepare you for this grand night! See below for the best sales this year!

You can also click the shop page to shop all items plus more!

I love Wayfair!! In fact, most of the furniture in our living room is from Wayfair and on top of it already being incredibly priced, their Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal is up to 80% off!

Here are some of my favorite items from this years sale.

Last year during Black Friday I bought most of the makeup I was going to use for my wedding day (I ended up using a makeup artist) but still got a TON of amazing makeup for such great deals! Here are some of my staple products!

You can never have enough accessories am I right? I am loving earrings and hair scarves at the moment and how about that knock off Gucci Belt? Because who can afford the real thing? Not me! 

I may have gotten myself in trouble with the clothing part of this gift guide because I want every single one of these items! How can you not want all of this?!

Shopping for men is already hard but David literally tells me "I don't want or need anything." How is a girl supposed to do Christmas with a guy who doesn't want anything?! Since I have a hard time getting stuff for David, this little guide was all I could really come up with but I would love to see David in all of this so I think it's pretty good!

I hope you guys liked this years items and if you buy anything from this post make sure to capture a cute pic and upload and TAG me! Happy Thanksgiving!

Light and so Yummy Mongolian Beef Recipe

I got asked to share this recipe so much after I posted a video of me making it on my instagram stories and I am so excited to share this Mongolian Beef Recipe with you today!

This recipe is Refined-sugar free and can be made Gluten Free which is how I made it being allergic to Gluten!

Make sure to Pin this recipe so you can refer back to it later! 
                                                               All images and recipe are taken from Sweat Peas and Saffron Blog

I am known for making the same 5 dinners that I feel comfortable cooking and David recently told me that I may need to think of some new things to make (sorry David.) Cooking is not fun for me, it does not come easy and honestly, I would rather have someone cook for me (who wouldn't) but really, cooking takes so long, so after an already long day of work I don't feel like coming home and cooking... just being honest here!

This Mongolian Beef recipe is pretty easy and it is so so yummy! What I love most about this recipe is that it makes enough for lunch the next day! That is a huge score when it comes to my schedule because I do not have time in the morning to make lunches! For the beef it calls for Flank Steak but after looking at the price of Flank Steak we opted for a thin cut Sirloin Tip and it was great! (You already know we are on that budget!) I also used a microwave rice cooker for our rice and if you do not own one of these bad boys you need to get one! It cooks your rice in 13 minutes! Probably not the safest and healthiest but so fast and good!

So while making this Mongolian beef I totally almost threw out a pan from accidentally burning my second batch a little, but I beat the pan and cleaned it up with a little elbow grease, as my mom likes to say! You guys, I WISH I would have taken a picture of this pan. It was bad and I didn't even want to try to clean it but I am a big girl now and I have to clean my mess!

I do have to say, be careful while cooking your steak because you coat it in cornstarch, once you place it in the pan, the cornstarch gets stuck to the oil and then to the pan and it does not clean up nicely... maybe I did something so wrong but it tasted good in the end!

So I will quit my rambling, here is the recipe!

Make sure to share this recipe on Pinterest and if you make this Light and Yummy Mongolian Beef, please share it and TAG me on Instagram! I would love to see you try it!
