The Picture Perfect Project - February


I'm joining in with some fabulous ladies to be a part of the Picture Perfect Project. Each month I'll be sharing a few photos I've taken with our Canon EOS Rebel T3i. I decided with this challenge to focus on documenting of each of our boys in their element. It might look messy, but I just want these photos to capture the every day life we have. I don't really plan to edit the photos in any way except for possibly cropping them a little.

This month's pictures were captured on our snow day, which was February 2. The lighting in the house was just great with the sun reflecting off the snow. I took more than three pictures of each boy, but I am sharing just three (and a little bonus at the end). I realize a few are a little out of focus; something I need to work on for sure.

All Wrapped Up with New Chic

I received this scarf from newchic.com for my review. The opinions are all my own. This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure statement.

Today I'm linking up with Ann at in residence. She is starting a monthly Mom Style Linkup and this month it's all about jeans. 



I LOVE the look of blanket scarves. There are so many fun plaid color combinations. When New Chic offered a shopping experience, I took a look around their accessory section, and this beauty caught my eye. It has the color mustard in it! #givemeallthemustard.

How He Proposed


(The photos in this post are our engagement pictures. Weren't we just babies? I don't think I have any photos from the actual day he proposed.)

Russ and I met in college. We had some funny beginnings which included meeting on Valentine's Day, a radio show history, our first date being with his parents, and a summer spent in Colorado apart but together on weekends.  It is kind of crazy how things fell together. The story of the day we got engaged has a few little quirks that make it worth telling.

LuLaRoe Leggings Looks & Giveaway!




I've loved LuLaRoe for a long while. I would say I loved it before it was really known. Today I wanted to share a couple looks from the archives that are LuLaRoe staples, the Irma top and leggings. The leggings are seriously the softest things ever, and the Irma top is super forgiving!


Here is my first LuLaRoe look that I shared on the blog almost two years ago. I still love these pieces!

20 Items 21 Days Capsule Wardrobe



I don't usually post on the weekends, but I will be for the next couple weeks. I'm going to try out a capsule wardrobe for the next 21 days. It's headed up by Paige at Style This Life and Shannon. It consists of 20 pieces of clothing. Some people who are participating are counting shoes in their 20, but I just can't. Shoes are like an accessory to me. Here's a rundown of what I chose.
