I had an amazing week! Sean and I went to San Diego, California for a business trip. I never, ever thought I would be in California, and I fell in love with the area we were at! The weather was beautiful, even if it did rain the first two days we were there, and it hadn’t rained since March!

After the convention was over we rented a mustang convertible for a day and drove about two hours away to see the Lilla Rose headquarters. It was so awesome to see where all the fantastic flexi clips are actually shipped from, and visit with the owner and meet all the workers! You can see a picture on Instagram where I’m wearing some new purple sunglasses from Lilla Rose in the mustang! 🙂

We attended a conference for bloggers, and it was my first time to attend a convention like this. It was really nice to be with 100 other people who just get this lifestyle, and don’t look at us like we are crazy because we both work from home. 🙂 Sean and I both came home recharged, full of new ideas and new visions. My to do list is a mile long!

This blue Pink Blush maxi dress is so comfortable and looks great with a short sleeve halftee under it! I'm styling it with a dangle necklace from JCPenny.

I’m wearing a new maxi dress from Pink Blush. They sent me three different dresses to review, and this is my favorite one! It’s the Royal Blue Basic Maxi, and I think it’s a flattering style for postpartum moms. Since my youngest is now 18 months (where has the time gone??) I’m not postpartum, just really struggling to lose the weight from her difficult pregnancy. It’s been a challenge to find clothes that look right, especially since I haven’t wanted to invest in a lot of clothes that are a size bigger.

The wind was blowing out in the country, so it’s was hard to get a good full length picture of the dress! It’s a really soft fabric, but definitely does need a slip under it.

This dress is really long, so plan on hemming it if you are a petite length. I’m 5’5″ and the only way I can wear this dress is with sandals on that have a chunky heel. I really should hem it, but I just haven’t taken the time yet.

Pink Blush offers a lot of maternity clothes, but has a decent collection of women’s clothes as well. I’ve had a few of their maternity clothes as well, and always found them comfortable, the material is just on the thinner side for knit.

Wearing a short sleeve halftee under the dress works great. I love this fairly new necklace from JCPenny! My husband said he should start calling me a blueberry, since blue is apparently my color. 🙂

A classic french braid can be enhanced by a Lilla Rose flexi clip! Just twist the braid under and secure it with a flexi clip.

Polka Dot Purse from ThredUP with a cute bow on it!

My new purse from ThredUP! I love the bright cheery polka dot colors!

Polka Dot Purse from ThredUP for a bright cheery look! Nine & Co. brand.

The colors work good for spring, summer, and even fall with the deeper burgundy colors in it! This is the second purse I’ve ordered off of ThredUP, and I have yet to be disappointed!

**Don’t forget that today is the last day for the pre-order special of the four new styles of Princess play dresses from Deborah & Co. Here is a sneak peak at one of them, my personal favorite. 🙂

This Elegant Princess Ballgown dress is adorable for girls ages 1-9. It's machine washable, and made with good quality fabric that holds up through hours of playtime!

It’s also the very last day you can grab the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle! I’ve been enjoying a lot of resources found in this bundle, and the physical bonus offers are worth getting the bundle for alone! I know you are probably hearing about this bundle online a lot right now, so this is the last mention today you will hear of it from me. 😉

We had a fantastic time in Branson this past weekend! We went with my sister and my brother in law, who is Sean’s brother that is married to my sister, their two boys and my mother in law. It was a lot of fun to go to Silver Dollar City together, and we rented a really neat cabin that we found through Airbnb! So far we haven’t had one failure renting places to stay using that website, it’s so awesome to go away and actually rent a house for an affordable price!

At a cabin in Branson Missouri

Here is a picture taken on the porch of our cabin. Since I’m not a huge fan of rides, I stayed home the second day from Silver Dollar City with our 1 year old and let her take a good nap. I ended up taking a nice long nap on the couch, and it felt so awesome to catch up on some sleep! Funny what makes a mom happy, as a teenager that would not have been a good vacation to me!

EShakti Skirt

I know you all have seen this outfit before, though the shoes are new. They are a Walmart special for $6.00! I couldn’t believe how cheap they were, and while they probably won’t last terribly long, I grabbed them for that price. They are a chambray look with tiny polka dots.

Flexi clips even work for side ponytails!

Fall is coming! I was really excited because it was cool enough to open our living room windows Sunday, and let a breeze come in. I deep cleaned my living room Saturday and moved all the furniture around, and I’ll get out my fall decorations soon!
Floral Maxi Dress from Eleventh Avenue, layered with a Halftee.

I found this dress on Eleventh Avenue awhile back, and decided to try it since it was on sale for a great price. I’m so glad I did! It’s really soft and comfortable. I layer it with a halftee tank underneath.

If you are looking for a fun night of encouragement and a chance to win some great prizes, Teach Them Diligently is having a huge Facebook party tonight! They will be releasing all the details on the 2017 schedule, and you will see us at some of those conferences again next year! You won’t want to miss out, so go RSVP here.

We had a fun weekend spent with family, and I actually had the chance to go out running (with a little bit of walking thrown in) for 2.5 miles early one morning. It was awesome! I’ve been working on getting out slowly running more, and I love the chance to clear my head, be out of the house and listen to music while I run.

I wear the modest athletic skirt that we sell and it’s SO wonderful. I can stretch, run, and even swim in this skirt and it holds up beautifully. Highly recommend it if you are athletic! You can wear this to the gym and stay modest!

LulaRoe Pink Nicole Dress. It's super bright and cheerful, and is a great knee length dress that is comfortable for everyday wear.

So..I’ve kind of joined the LulaRoe fan club. I’ve even considered becoming a consultant, but wow! Startup costs are not cheap, and we are still trying to save for a house! This is the Nicole dress, and here are my honest thoughts about it…keeping in mind that I bought this with my own money, I’m not a consultant, and have no personal interest in promoting this company for you. 🙂

First- what I love.

I love how comfortable this dress is. The fabric is so soft and snuggly. I love the cheerful print, it makes me feel happy to wear this dress all day. I really like the sleeve length.

What I’m just ok about…

If you have a mommy tummy (meaning weight that just won’t fall off in your tummy!), this dress isn’t the most flattering. If I stand up straight and tall, and wear Spanx under it (yes, I have spanx that I got from Zulily, they are a mom’s best friend), I feel ok in it. Notice I said just ok. If this crazy weight would ever go away, this dress will be awesome!

Two other things that are just ok – the neckline is low for me. I haven’t played around with a cami under it yet, but I really need to. I wish it was a few inches longer, but I’m ok with this length if I’m careful.

Curly hair with a Mini Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. They work so great for holding hair back, and are pretty!

What I Wore

LulaRoe Dress – I was invited to an online party and purchased it through a friend’s party. You can join the group here and see all the inventory!

Shoes – ThredUP (You can get a $10 credit to ThredUP if you are a new customer, I seriously LOVE this store for gently used clothing!)

Flexi Clip – Of course, it’s from Lilla Rose! Being a consultant with this company has been an amazing experience.

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural foundation and Smashbox  eye shadow and blush
