Soaking Up Some Sunshine

My Outfit-
Top (old) similar
Pants 
Boots (old) similar
Lip Gloss
Nail Polish

Rosalie's Outfit-
Black Top (sold out) similar
Pink Cheetah Leggings
Boots (sold out) similar

Yesterday Chanse got done with school a little bit earlier than usual so we went to lunch together as a family, and got some errands done. It was so nice to be able to see him in the middle of the day because he is usually so busy with school and work. We enjoyed the sunshine outside for a little bit too, and Rosalie loved playing in the grass! She always gets mad when I pick her up because she just wants to keep playing. I got these pants that I am wearing from H&M just last week for $10.00, but sadly they aren't on sale anymore :( They are still super reasonable though, and they are so comfortable! And aren't Rosalie's bow and hat so cute?! My mom made her the bow, and her grandparents in Belize had the hat made for her :)

Tender Mercies

Yesterday was one of those days where I felt so grateful for the tender mercies in my life. I sat Rosalie down on the floor to play so that I could get to work, but she wasn't having it. She immediately started screaming, and would not stop. I was stressed because I had to get some work done before 11 am, and I knew that wasn't going to happen if she kept screaming at me. I tried to pick her up and set her by me on the couch, but that didn't work either. She was still upset, and I could see that she was overly tired (she hadn't slept very good the night before). I decided to try and rock her to sleep, and thankfully she was out in about 10 minutes. I then carefully slid my arm out from under her, slowly leaned forward to grab my laptop off of the coffee table, and I got to work. Rosalie ended up sleeping for over 2 hours on my lap while I worked, and I was so grateful! It really was such a tender mercy for me to be able to get all of my work done, and I loved being able to watch my sweet baby girl sleep. I wanted to take the time to write this down so I wouldn't forget how blessed I am, even when it comes to small and simple things in my life. I'm so grateful for a Heavenly Father who knows me, loves me, and is aware of all of my needs. :) 
Awake and happy after her long nap :)
What tender mercies have you seen in your own life?

Friday Favorites

Hi Everyone! 
I hope you are all having a great Friday! I have some of my Friday Favorites below. Some of them are things that I already have and love, and others are things that I have really been wanting for either me or Rosalie :)
Peplum Top- I bought this top a couple of months back and I have loved wearing it! I have it in black, but right now it is sold out in that color!
Method Dish Soap- My sister told me to try this dish soap and I got the pink grapefruit and LOVED it! I haven't tried the surface cleaner yet, but I am going to try that next.
Baby Chevron Leggings- I bought Rosalie several pairs of leggings for Christmas, but they didn't have this pattern when I got her leggings and I really want to get them for her. Chevron is just so cute!
Jelly Sandals- My sister and I have an obsession with jelly sandals because we had them when we were little and loved them! Forever 21 just got some back in and I am getting these ones :)
Love Baby Hat- Chanse and I were at H&M the other day and I tried a hat very similar to this one on Rosalie and she looked adorable! I am still kicking myself for not buying it!
Red Fur Baby Coat- I loved these coats at Target when I first saw them and now they are on sale for 10 dollars! I am getting this one for Rosalie :)
Anna Doll- Chanse and I love taking Rosalie into the Disney store because there are so many fun things. Last time we took her in we got her this super cute Anna doll.
Striped Dress- I have wanted this dress for months, now if only it would go on sale ;)
Joggers- I love sweats, they are part of my main wardrobe when I am at home. I love these because they look so cute and comfortable :) 
Honest Shampoo- I did a review on this a while back and I am still loving it! It is not harsh like most shampoos and doesn't make my hair tangle.
Honest Conditioner- Love the conditioner too! 
Treggings- I got these in red and they are my favorite pants right now! I bought them a little big because I don't like tight things on my stomach, so keep that in mind if you are getting a pair :)


Having a wonderful Friday!!!

xoxo

Valentine's Day Fun!

Our Valentine's Day was spent in Cedar City with family, and we had a great time! It was my Grandpa's Surprise 80th Birthday Party, so we went there to surprise him. We were able to see a ton of family that we don't get to see often, and we LOVED the warm weather. I think Rosalie enjoyed it more than anyone though!

This was Rosalie when she was on the grass...
And this is what happened when you picked her up....
Me and my gorgeous momma. I sure do love this lady!
The whole crew
I love these people! Get a load of my sissy's hair! UH-mazing!!! She needs to share ;)
And because it was Valentine's Day I was sure to take several pictures with my love. This man is my rock and my best friend. I can't imagine my life without him in it. He makes me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world, and I know that he would do anything for me. I'm so glad that he is my cowboy :)
<3

The whole trip wore our sweet baby girl out, and she had a good nap in the car :)
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
