Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Long maxi skirt with sweater top!  I love how comfortable this outfit is. | themodestmomblog.comWe went for a walk at a nearby lake for a nice Sunday evening family time. The children are so used to Modest Monday pictures that they thought the only reason we came was to take some pictures. We reassured them they could walk to the lake and throw stones in! 🙂

I stayed home Sunday from church with our oldest son as we both still have bad coughs left over from colds. I actually had a fantastic morning! It was quiet, I turned a sermon on while I made a yummy lunch and set the table really pretty. The house was clean when everyone walked in, which every mom knows is a good feeling! I put Joy essential oil in the diffuser while I cooked, it was so nice!

Silver earrings and a simple side braid are easy to touches to this outfit.

The last few days I’ve been working on trying to get a small amount of makeup on in the morning. Today I just put on my foundation from L’BRI, blush and lipstick. I didn’t even bother doing anything with my eyes. My husband has been full of compliments, which is a nice change from feeling yucky for weeks.

I know the thought of makeup is overwhelming to a lot of moms. Who has time to add one more thing onto their morning routine? I find that when I take the extra few minutes I feel so much happier during the day. I feel more put together, just having my hair fixed, some foundation and lip gloss on. You really don’t have to do much for it take make a difference!

I’ve been using two new lipstick colors from L’BRI for fall and love them! They are caramel and chestnut colors. It’s the little things that make me happy. 🙂

  1. You always look so pretty! <3

    Today I am sharing a post about my experiences with learning to be content on the mission field.

    Thank you for hosting, and have a beautiful day!

  2. What a gorgeous sweater. Yesterday I read “Her braid laid on her shoulder like a rope — when I braid my hair it looks like a wet rat’s tail.” That might not be the exact words but I laughed when I read them. I’m in the rat’s tail group. Thank you for once again hosting this party. ~Pamela

    This outfit is fantastic! That burgundy color makes you glow! 🙂 I hope we see more of that color on you.

  4. It is so fun seeing pics of you again… I can tell from your smile that you’re feeling better 🙂

  5. Nice outfit, beautiful setting, and you look like you’re feeling better!!

  6. You look great! The lake in the background made for a really nice picture. I wish we had something like that nearby to take the kids – it looks so calming yet exciting for the kiddos. I know what you mean about having a quiet morning and feeling accomplished. My husband has been taking the kids on bike rides or walks after dinner and I usually clean up and shower while they are out. That half an hour makes me feel energized and sets the tone for the rest of the evening.

  7. I think you look beautiful in this pic! I love that sweater and your nails to match! And, congrats on the coming baby! I’m so happy for you all!

  8. Thanks so much for the party. Have a wonderful week.

  9. You look so radiant when you’re pregnant! Definitely that glow about you 🙂 Thinking about you. Hope each & everyday is getting better & better!!!
