Hey y'all! We've been so busy around here lately that I haven't put my hair up very fancily the past few days. Here are some of my favorite "go-to" styles that I do all the time which take less than 5 minutes, and are awesome when you're in a rush to get ready, or for busy moms like me. :-)
#1 (is the one pictured a above)
Half up - Half Down Braid
#2 Headband with a Side Braid
I really like this style because it is an easy
way to decorate a normal everyday braid.
This is a really simple updo that is very quick to throw
together when your in a hurry, or for chores around
Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Here is what I wore last Sunday for Easter and it's just one of those outfits that are new, but quickly become a favorite that will definitely be around a long time as a regular "go-to" style.
I found both the dress and the jacket at an unclaimed baggage store, while we were out on our 2nd wedding anniversary, and both were great deals. The dress was brand new and still had the original price tag on it that said $98.99, but we got it for $13.85! Yay! And the jacket was only $5.99 so I was very excited about these finds.
I am still nursing my little boy and have a difficult time finding dresses that are also nursing friendly (click here to see an older post about another nursing friendly dress). This one is actually strapless, but you can't tell it and that makes it perfect for nursing.
I'm rather tall (5' 11"), so whenever I find a dress that is long, I always get super happy about it! :-)
Dresses like this are so multipurpose, since you can dress them up for special occasions or give them a rustic, country feel (my favorite style) by adding denim, like I did here. Also, I love peach colors mixed with navy blue, especially a dark denim; it just makes the colors pop.

Do y'all have any favorite Spring dresses?
What did you wear last Sunday?
If any of you nursing moms have suggestions on making dresses nursing friendly I would definitely love to hear them!

Hey y'all! Remember that "March Photo Challenge"? Well, here are my pictures from throughout the month. I had planned to post them at the end of every week, but so much has happened and we've been overly busy all month long.
I know I had fun doing this and I hope y'all will enjoy seeing the photos.
So, here they are finally! :-)
We still had snow at the beginning of the
month and this is our view as you're leaving our
farm out the back way. It looked so pretty
covered in a blanket of snow.
This is a corner in downtown Ashville, AL
on the square. You can see the old rock store and the "Upping Block".
and the civil war reenactment that they were hosting there.
#19 A Pair
#20 Something New
A new book that we just got and are very excited about! We've been going through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University (FPU) and highly recommend it for everyone no matter what stage you're at in life or with your money. Y'all should go definitely check out their website www.daveramsey.com.
#21 Black and White
One of our favorite hymns that was actually sung at our wedding.
"God Holds The Future In His Hands"
Our wedding rings and my engagement ring.
If you look close, you can barely see our
honeybee hives in the top left corner of the picture.
Small cedar disks that we have been selling in our Etsy shop.
We had an impressive hail storm that day.
There were some much, much bigger ones than these.
And last, but not least, a little green
leaf growing between some rocks.
What an interesting month this has been! From snow at the
beginning to now working in the garden and enjoying all
of the pretty wildflowers.
This was such a fun challenge
and I had lots of fun doing it.
Have y'all taken any interesting photos this Spring?
