Holy cow did this week fly by or what?? So happy it is Friday!! Every weekend I just think how I am that much closer to meeting my little guy! Lately all we do on weekends is try new food haha not sure if that is because of being pregnant and wanting to eat non stop or what but I must say its been pretty fun! We went to the food truck round up in Provo tonight and I had a hot dog with mac n cheese on it and I think I was in heaven…. mac n cheese should just be put on everything!

Anyways, about this outfit – I am in love with all orchid/purple clothes for summer – I just think it is the prettiest color! I know this one is maternity so below are some other orchid dresses I love :) I also have a tutorial for you on how to do this Dutch turned fishtail braid! Watch it, here!

I hope you all have a fab weekend!! xoxo

    First of all I think you are FABULOUS!

    Second, where did you get your gold and topaz ring I sometimes see you wear? That is my birthstone and that ring you have is about the only one I like in that color.

    Thanks for your time!!

    I actually want to just ask a question. I am a teacher and I really like your videos how they speed up so that you don’t have to just wait for the next step. I teach school and want to be able to edit some videos in the way you have done. Can you tell me what programs you use? Or send a small video of you doing the editing process. I would be so excited to know who to do this. Thank you!
