Sunday’s Style in Mexico 

Dress: Gifted (TJ Maxx) | Sandals: Unlimited

I’m back y’all! A blog about my mission trip to Mexico City isn’t quite finished but check back soon. In the mean time, I thought I would at least do a few blogs on what I wore. I’m starting with this Mexican-inspired printed maxi. 

A good friend of mine was getting rid of this gem, can you believe that?! After quickly looking it over for any damage or malfunctions I found none. One girls trash is another girls treasure, right!? She later shared how it had just shrunk in length making it perfect for my height. 

At the time of adding this piece to my wardrobe my mission trip to Mexico was a couple months off. I may have had time to pack but I immediately knew how perfect it would be for the trip because of the print alone. Then I realized that the material was light weight which really sold me on taking it. I remember thinking how it would be perfect for my packing minimally goals and it was. I packed less than a majority of the men and boys on our trip y’all! I will do a what to pack for mission trip post another time, promise. 

You can probably see in the photos that the only issues I had wearing this dress was the bra ( go brawless with this style y’all) and have a more toned back ( nothing working out can’t fix) … 

until next time lovelies,

Morning y’all! I couldn’t help myself and wear a lavender dress to a lavender farm. Cheesy I know but that me! For an easy Sunday look I would switch out the boots for a pair of heels and throw on a dash of bling via a necklace. However, today I wanted to share more about what I experience rather than what I wore. 

Here is about my recent trip to Lavender Ridge Farms. Friday was my last day before leaving for a mission trip and I wanted to spend the day with my girls relaxing. It is a bit ironic that we chose a Lavender farm because Lavender essential oil is what we use to help our girls relax at night.

Our oldest daughter, Lyianna, is five years old and has been asking questions about Lavender. Since I didn’t know much about Lavender we decided to read about it together. When we can we go see what we are learning and this was the perfect opportunity. I was able to find a local Lavender farm and so we planned this trip!

Although Lavender is not in full bloom until July and August I thought this was a better opportunity to visit due to the increasing heat here. It is a little over an hour drive from Fort Worth, Texas. This was a perfect length of time for a good nap which made for a peaceful and quiet drive for us mommies (or daddies).

Once we arrived I rolled the window down to take a photo of the entrance signage and I could immediately smell the fresh Lavender. It was amazing. I felt relaxed just breathing it in. We were then greeted by an adorable dog who seemed to be leading us to the parking area, lol.

The parking and entrance to the farm is free! You pick a basket, a pair of scissors, and head out into the field to pick. As you can see in the pictures picking and placing the lavender into a basket was my daughters favorite part. I let her pick to her hearts desire and then we fit as much lavender as we could into a bunch that had to be tied with bread bag tie. Each bunch is only $8, so this is a great low-cost adventure.

We also enjoyed their Lavender café and tried an array of lavender flavored foods, drinks and desserts.  Our favorite was the Lavender Cheesecake! Once we were full and finished with touring the farm we supported this small business and purchased some Texas Lavender Honey and Lavender Vanilla soaps. Now we are ready for bath time!

Blessings,

Welcome back everyone! It has been so long that I almost forgot how to blog, lol. Anyone else wonder where the pictures and content were when this first posted? I did. Thankfully, I have corrected the post …

I find myself being apologetic for the long absence and at the same time not. That whole sorry not sorry motto can be inserted here , right? Life happened and I am glad that living my life was priority over blogging about it.The break was needed and wonderful but since I have a few fans constantly requesting my return, especially that of my four-year old, I have decided to spend time again in one of my favorite corners of life. So, it is official to say I am back. 

As you see in the photos our oldest daughter, Lyianna, has acquired a new love. Please meet Isla Rose, our American Girl doll. She became a part of our family on Christmas morning. Isla really does everything with us and it brings me so much joy to see Lyianna so happy with her doll. It has also brought us even closer as I even enjoy playing with my own doll that I gifted myself. Lyianna’s excitement in having a Isla to dress up and play with reminds me of that same emotion in hearing I was having a girl. I remember how undescribably joyful it was to know I was going to have a girl, my own real american girl.

Blessings,

p.s. If you are contemplating jumping on the American Girl wagon I would love to answer any questions you may have. Let me know if you would like to read a post on America Girl Dolls!

Say hello to my look of the day! It may be just a t-shirt but I gave it a little more appeal with teal suede heels. My pastor actually painted this portrait and then had it put on t-shirts a few years back and I love it. You can come visit here for more of his art work turned fashion. I decided on this because it summarizes everything that needs to be said or explained in one word, Jesus.

God Bless you this Good Friday,
