Birthday Wish list

I can’t believe that I am turning 24 this month. How does time fly by so fast? I still remember being little and celebrating my birthday with my parents now I am celebrating my birthday as a parent!  Here are some of the things I have been lusting for this summer! 

Birthday Wish list

Favorites Under Fifty!

We all have our absolute favorites! The things we always seem to use and never get tired of. Here are a couple of my favorite latest obsessions!

Seriously this eye pallet is the holy grain! I have all the naked pallets but this is still my favorite eye pallet. Its soo pretty and feminine! It’s a must have in every girls makeup collection! Trust me you will love it!

Ok this top is perfection! Right now its even on sale for a little under fifty dollars. Every time I wear this blouse I feel fabulous. The quality of the shirt it wonderful! I think it’s the perfect mix of classy with some sass! Every time I wear it I feel fab!

Ok confession I just ordered this bra today but I am super excited to get it! I know its sports bra but I plan on using it as a fun bralette under v-necks. I love that it has support because my problem with most bralettes is that this girl is a 34DDD and there is no way most bralettes can support my chest! I will keep you posted on how great it truly is!

If its off the shoulder I NEED IT!  I might have a overpowering obsession with off the shoulder tops! Seriously its bad but who can blame a girl! They are fabulous! In my opinion they look great on me with my short hair! Christa landmark boutique just got this one in and its amazing! The Floral and lightweight material are wonderful! 

All I need to say about this highlight is that its sheer perfection! 

This candle is a delight! It smells heavenly and the vase it is in is gorgeous. It’s so pretty when it’s lit up. Even my husband loves it, which is always a plus! I Bought mine at noble women boutique in marshall mn but anthro sells them online!

Let me know if you end up purchasing any of these great items! I promise they will not disappoint!

Have a great day!

For the past month I have had blogging on my mind! I used to love to do it but something inside of me used to feel that it had obligations! I used to tell myself that I needed to post a certain amount of posts a week or that if I didn’t have a ton of followers I wasn’t going to be success­­ful. Now I look back at it and think why did I make it so hard? This is my space where I share my life. No one minds If I only post once a month.

You could say I’m back because I miss having a space of my own. A space where I can post my latest ideas, fashion inspirations and how my life is going.  Now a days nothing is really mine anymore. Being a mom to a toddler means you share. You share your food, your baths, even your hair products and I’m totally ok with it. Before we had ben we hoped but even more than that we prayed. That one day we would be able to hold a sweet baby in our arms that would be ours. After multiple miscarriages I really learned to cherish every little moment because life can be so fragile. As I watch Benjamin learn and grow every day I am ever so thankful to god for granting us the opportunity to be his parents. He’s everything I could of hoped for.

That being said I am excited to be blogging again.

& to share my life with you!

This past week has been a whirlwind to say the least!! It was my birthday week and I was bound to make it perfect! Tuesday my friends and I had the most perfect picnic and horseback riding session planned. Everything started out perfect but somehow the horse got scared and I feel off the horses which caused me to have a concussion and seizure! It was a pretty scary ordeal but I have no broken bones and god continues to be wonderful in my life! I spent Tuesday evening and Wednesday in the hospital.

Thursday I turned 22. I went out for pedicures and lunch with my best friend but I was still pretty sore from everything so I spent the rest of my day at home just hanging out.

Friday evening I went out for dinner with my gal pals and went to the street dance in town!
Saturday morning I hung out with my perfect little family and just relaxed! In the evening we went to our local rodeo which was a blast!! Even ben enjoyed it, he didn’t cry once. After that my husband was on baby duty and the girls and I hit up the street dance for a girls night out to celebrate my birthday! It was so wonderful to be able to hang out with some of my high school friends!

Sunday we went to church and then spent the afternoon at our local pool for a wonderful family evening! Ben loved the pool! He had a blast with us, his aunties and cousins. It was so nice to enjoy a relaxing evening as a group.

I had an amazing week even though I needed to take painkillers to get by! My friends and family are so wonderful and made my week so special! Although my week was great I am so ready to get back on track with my diet. I seriously ate like crap all week and I am banned from working out, hard brain activities and driving until the Dr. clears me! My body is still super sore but I want to start my normal routine again! Although I loved indulging in sweets all week it made my body feel sluggish. My bodies craving good and healthy food!  Water, fruit and asparagus are going to be a must have this week!
How was your week/weekend? Anything great happen

Post Baby Summer Essentials

Good morning Lovely’s

Today is my first morning back at work from my maternity leave and what better opportunity than to post about my post baby summer style! ! For those of you who haven’t had a baby lets just say your body changes after you have a baby and even though i am working on getting my body back it does take a while. Not to mention a ton of hard work and motivation or at least for me. When your a mom to a infant or just in general it goes without saying that you are one busy and tired bee! Since i work at a boutique one part of my job is looking good! Here are some of my favorite post baby styles/pieces that keep me looking and feeling good!

Tank (here)
Skirt (Here)
Wedges (here)

We recently just got these two fabulous pieces in the store and i am in love!! I love how pretty they look to together. this is a great outfit for a summer wedding, if you have to be dressed up for work, church, date night and so on! The best part is that both pieces you can wear with many things! Navy might be one of my favorite colors when it comes to clothing. Navy goes with everything!!!! The pattern on this skirt hides all imperfections which is what you want when you just had a baby! 

Skirt (here)

Maxi Skirts Baby!!!! Whoever invented maxi skirts has a special place in my heart! Seriously they are cute comfy and easy, need i say more! Maxi skirts are my go to when i wanna look cute but need to be comfortable! I put on my favorite t-shirt and a scarf and voila i am done!! Christa has so many cute ones in right now and it just makes my heart so happy! 

Dress (here)

Dress (here)

Dress are seriously a life saver! one piece to put on and your done. Summer is one of my favorite season! although I hate the heat i swear its so much easier to look cute in summer because there are so many great dress options and they are so easy to wear! i think i might own over 20 dresses and you can bet your sweet face that they will all be worn all summer. My favorite dress are the ones that singe at the waist because it shows off the smallest part of my body and takes away the attention from my belly.


Top (Here)

Boyfriends shorts are my favorite kind of shorts right now! They are long enough where my butt doesn't hangout of them. i also don’t get thigh chaffing from them either so that makes them a double wammy for me! we have three pairs of kut Boyfriend shorts at work and i k=own all there and i am positive that they will be on repeat all summer long! my favorite pair is this light wash distressed pair! I wore both of these looks while i was in Florida this past week. They wear easy and cute and for me they is actually what i aim for these days!

I am so thankful to be able to work at a place that provides affordable and cute clothing to our community! The store keeps me looking cute without breaking my bank which is also important for new moms cause lord knows newborns are pricey!!

What are your summer favorites? Do you have any post baby tricks to keep you looking and feeling fabulous?

Have a fabulous weekend

Wellness Wednesday

When your mind says you can’t tell your body to push harder!!

That’s my new motto and if I’m not mistaken I think I made it up. It might not be the catchiest thing out there but it works for me! I have learned that for me personally my mind gives up before my body and if I can push through it than I can keep going a lot more than I thought!

This past week I have been working out a lot more! I have been doing t25 and then running after! I don’t know why but its easiest for me to run after doing t25. I’m guessing it’s because I already have my body in motion. Either way I have been trying to push my limits lately. You have to push hard in order to see results. With that being said I have had a couple slips up this past week. I  gave in to cake on memorial day, and buns! Plus on Friday I went to a local winery and indulged in whine and the best brick oven pizza ever!!!!!
I mean doesn’t this look delish?!

With that being said who say healthy can’t be just as equally delicious! I made these amazing Quinoa Stuffed bell peppers last week that were finger licking good! Here is the recipe that I found of Pinterest! I did add some ground beef to make it a little more filling but for my first time trying quinoa I was in love!

Goal Update
I lost two pounds this week. I still have four more pounds until I meet my first goal but I will keep pushing through!

Lastly here is some great baby spam(;

Have a wonderful day!

The Most Embarrassing Thing I Have Ever Done!

Today is the Day…It’s not a big day but it’s an important day! My husband and I have chosen to start to eat a lot healthier/cleaner! I know saying it is a lot easier than actually doing it but we are really hoping to stick to this and hopefully I can develop and establish a support system that will keep me accountable! I know some days will be harder than others but I plan on allowing myself to have two cheat meals a week which I think will help me with sticking to the plan.  I think for me my biggest obstacles will be sweets and carbs because when it comes to that I am a junkie! I love brownies, pasta and breads but I hope that my want for be healthier outdoes my love for food! I want to be able wear cute dresses and shorts and feel good about it! I want to be able to go the lake and feel comfortable. I hate the feeling of going to a store and not being able to fit into what I want! I am doing this for me but also for ben because I don’t want my son to be overweight or think its ok to have a unhealthy lifestyle.  If we establish healthy lifestyle hopefully my son won’t know anything different other than a healthy lifestyle and that’s what I want!  I know that it will be a struggle especially because of my hypothyroidism but I hope that my determination out does my frustration!

In order to really keep accountable I have to do this no matter how embarrassing it is!
My start weight is 191
This is my body unedited six weeks after having a baby
Please don’t judge!

I believe in little victories so my first goal is to be 185 and fit in this swimsuit comfortably!

Dont mind my wonderful faces

Yeah I know its not a pretty site but im working on it!
Well there it!
The good the bad and the ugly!
 Hopefully with your help and support I can become a better version of who I am!

Have a wonderful Day
