I hope everyone had an amazing week! We had such a fun day on the 4th of July with friends and family. I was totally exhausted by the end of the day but it was worth it. 🙂
If you don’t follow me on Facebook and already saw this update, I’ll share it here. It’s nothing big, I just went and cut my hair recently! Hardly anyone can even tell that I took 6 inches off in length, but the bangs part is pretty noticeable. 🙂 I’m still undecided if I truly love the bangs, but I have them for now so I’m enjoying them until I get the urge to grow them out again. My hair grows fast so it’s not that big of a deal. My friend made a comment that I go back and forth with bangs as much as she moves her house around. I had to laugh because she is true! I like variety in life. 🙂
I look at these pictures and I see a wife and mama. Sometimes I feel like a teenager still, and then I look at my oldest and can’t believe I have a 9 year old!
I have my serious side….the part that is weighed down with cares and concerns. Some I should keep close to my heart and pray over, others I need to just lay at the foot of the cross and let go of them….
Then there is my lighthearted side. This is the part of me that my husband fell in love with, the spontaneous, happy, very optimistic and hopeful Caroline. Ever the dreamer….I doubt that will stop. My husband knows when I’m coming to him with the words “what do you think about….?” that it could mean anything from ideas for starting a whole new business online, to merely ideas for dinner. 🙂
My red shoes. These are the first red shoes I have ever owned, and I’m enjoying them this summer. 🙂
My mini flexi clip. Where would I be without them?
(Ok, a bit of drama, but seriously I use them a lot!)
What I Wore
Dress – Thrift Store (thanks to my sister giving it to me!)
Red Halftee – Deborah & Co. (I love these, so easy to layer under clothes!)
Red Shoes – Zulily
Earrings – Kohls
Flexi Clip – Mini Tree of Life from Lilla Rose
Lip Gloss – Cowgirl Dirt
(seriously the only thing I had time to put on before getting to church!)
I’m also wearing a fitsplint under my dress in the attempts to heal my diastis from having five children. I’ve worn several postpartum type wraps and this is by far the most comfortable. Sometimes I forget I have it on. When I went to bed last night my core was sore, which I consider a good thing. I’m combing the fitsplint with the tummy workouts at Fit2B, and also walking at the track near us. Highly recommend Fit2B, I don’t agree with totally everything on the site (not in the terms of exercise but in the “focus inward” yoga part), but it is the first workout that is easy to do which focuses on healing a tummy from having children.
