Five 5 Minute Hairstyles

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.

#3 Topknot
This is a really simple updo that is very quick to throw
together when your in a hurry, or for chores around
the house to keep the hair off of your neck.

#4 Half up - Half Down
This without a doubt is my main
"go-to" style for many days of the week.

#5 Flip-Through Ponytail
And lastly, a fast and simple way to dress up a ponytail!
The other styles are pretty self explanatory, but I'm
going to go ahead and include some "how-to"
pictures for this one.

 Staring with a high ponytail,
 split the hair above the elastic band,
 flip you hair up,
 and pull it back through the gap that you made.

I hope that some of these ideas are helpful
for when you need to style your hair in rush. 

What are some of y'all's favorite 5 minute or less hairstyles?

Outfit Post // Peach + Denim - Nursing Friendly Spring Maxi Dress

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.

Dress: Unclaimed Baggage
Jacket: Unclaimed Baggage
Flip-flops: Walmart

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!

"Jesus said unto her, 'I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whoesoever believeth in me shall never die.  Believeth though this?' "  John 11 25-26 KJV

March Photo Challenge // My Pictures

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! :-)

#1 Your View
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.

#2 A Corner
This is a corner in downtown Ashville, AL
on the square.  You can see the old rock store and the "Upping Block".
Click here to see a post on our farm blog that I did about the "Upping Block".

#3 In Your Hands
A hot cup of coffee on an early cold morning.

#4 A Clock

#5 Happiness
Yep, true happiness!!! :-)
A picture that has now become one of my very favorites.

#6 Luck or rather "Blessed"
Instead of doing "luck", I decided to take a picture
of how blessed I am.  Family is such
a special thing that we should always be thankful for
and never take for granted.
We are very blessed!

A lovely sunrise on a beautiful,
crisp, early, spring morning as the mist
filled our little valley.

My fiddle and mandolin are definitely
 two of my most prized possessions.

Cream Cheese, 2 Boiled Eggs,
Strawberries, Grapes, and a glass of Milk
to drink. Yummy!!

Two "Someone's" that I love very, very much!

#16 Your Street

#17 Green
A refreshingly, tasty watermelon.

#18 Something Old
Janney Furnace.  A local historic site that we actually
went to at the end of the month for Jesse's birthday.
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.

One of our favorite hymns that was actually sung at our wedding.
"God Holds The Future In His Hands"

We had an impressive hail storm that day. 
There were some much, much bigger ones than these.

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?
