I just returned home from our last convention of the year! We briefly talked about going to Colorado for a convention on our drive home, but I think we are tired and will just stay home. Everyone always asks how we do it all, and it’s definitely not without the help of family! My sister and mother in law watched the 4 children we left at home this time, and my sister was so great about getting them to all their music lessons and orchestra practices! So thankful!

It was such a crazy weekend, I just didn’t have time to take any outfit pictures. I’ll share the one picture that excited me the most this weekend though.

I met Sarah Mackenzie from Read Aloud Revival! She is the author of Teaching From Rest, A Homeschooler’s Guide to Unshakeable Peace. That book has blessed me in so many different ways and I desperately wanted to meet her and give her a hug. She is as cute as can be, and just as sweet and joyful as I had imagined! It was so great to sit in on one of her early morning talks before the vendor hall opened up! If you haven’t read her book yet, make it a priority for your summer break from school!

I came home to children that were longing to talk, so we stayed up late being together as a family. Today is beyond full, I told the children I have one big week of work left and then May should calm down! The Homemaking Bundle starts this Wednesday and I can’t wait to share more information about it with you all!!

Enjoy the link up, and have a great Monday!

We had a beautiful spring day for Easter Sunday, and I loved getting to hear an amazing cantata sing for church in the morning! Easter is such a special day to celebrate the life of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! When you stop to think through all He did for us, it’s extremely humbling. There really are no words for it.

3 of the 4 girls are wearing matching dresses from Costco! Some were gifts for birthdays, and then I didn’t get there soon enough to grab the other two dresses, so Deborah had to wear a different style. Costco has had such adorable dresses for great prices this year!

I found this dress at Marshalls on Saturday, and really liked it! Of course it’s blue. Ha! I wanted to find something floral or lace for Easter, but this worked shopping last minute. 🙂

And this is why there is such a thing as Halftees! I’m wearing the ¾ length sleeve Halftee here, and it was perfect for wearing to make this dress a little more modest!

I’m loving the new braided leather headbands that Lilla Rose recently came out with! I finally got around to ordering the blue and tan color ones and let me tell you, these are pretty amazing headbands! They don’t slip one tiny bit all day long, so if you have ever said that you could never find a headband to work in your hair, give one of these a try!!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter Sunday!

What I Wore

Dress – London Times Brand

Halftee – ¾ Length Halftee from Deborah & Co.

We got home from the Teach Them Diligently convention Wednesday afternoon, and turned around and started attending our local homeschool convention Thursday evening.  Sean and I went for Friday and Saturday just as parents, and attended all the classes. It was so amazing! They had Heidi St. John and Andrew Peduwa as the featured speakers and I can’t even begin to tell you how refreshed and encouraged I am from listening to them for two days! My husband especially enjoyed listing to Andrew Peduwa!

I had my oldest take a few pictures on my phone before we left for church, and I’m glad we did! I thought I would have time later in the day to take nicer photos for this post but the day ended up being really busy!

I’m so thankful for a nice set of hot rollers and flexi clips to pull my hair back! At this point I don’t have to stress about how to fix my hair, I just have to wake up early enough on Sunday morning to plug my hot rollers in. 🙂

What I Wore

Skirt – Cato

Shirt – Matilda Jane (I found mine on Ebay because they were sold out of my size)

Shoes – Zulily

Forgive me for getting this up late this week! It’s been such a busy weekend! We have been at the Teach Them Diligently Conference in Nashville which ended Saturday evening. Sean and I had booths right next to each other, which was great! He was there with Character Badges, and spoke on Thursday evening. I had a booth for Deborah & Co. there and it was so much fun to meet blog readers there! I left exhausted but so encouraged.

We rented a house close to the convention center through Airbnb, so I crashed on Sunday and didn’t get get dressed for the day until noon! That is unusual for me. I woke up with a lot of my old adrenal fatigue symptoms and knew the day was going to be rough. We finally left the house and wanted to explore some local parks and take a walk. I barely made it on the walk and we turned around early and left. I felt so bad! It’s not often that I have days like that anymore, but when it does happen it’s a painful reminder of what my life used to be like when my boys were little. So thankful that my energy levels are better now!

I just discovered this pretty floral shirt on Amazon, of all places! The great news is that it was super affordable! I did size up to a large as suggested and that was a good decision. The lace peeking through under it is from our Lace Trimmed Tank, and we just restocked the sizes and have quite a few back in stock!

I used an XS Flexi clip to pull back my hair. I had curled it the previous two days with my hot roller set, but decided to skip that step on Sunday! I did get my makeup put on, of course the weekend I meet lots of new people my face decides to be broken out. Ha! It always seems to happen that way (maybe the stress and lack of sleep from getting ready to come?) and of course it keeps me humble. 😉 I’m using Younique foundation right now and it covers up really well. The pictures never make it look bad, so I’m really not making this up. 🙂

And in other news, wouldn’t you know that a house popped up for sale while we were out of town that we were both actually interested in. Of course it already sold! Oh well. I know God has a house for us out there, and in HIS timing it will happen!

What I Wore

Denim Skirt – Stretch Denim Knee Length Skirt from Deborah & Co.

Shirt – Striped Floral from Amazon

Leggings – Black Leggings from LulaRoe

Tank – Lace Trimmed Tank Top From Deborah & Co. (it has a nice high neckline!)

Shoes – Converse Ballet

Flexi Clip – Size XS Clip from Lilla Rose
