Dress Mindy Mae’s Market // Hat old but I love this one // Sunnies Ray Bans

Lipstick MAC Twig // Shoes Chucks

As you all know I am a huge fan of Mindy Mae’s Market. I kid you not when I say that this dress is the best, most comfortable and the most flattering that I own! I am so excited to wear it now that it is warming up. It is perfect for Spring and even transitioning into summer. I am LDS and finding cute modest summer gear is a struggle. Bermuda shorts and I do not get along! Luckily for me this dress comes into two different colors and I plan on wearing them both constantly! It’s perfect for doing my mommy thing I can chase the girls around the park and kneel down and I don’t need to fret about showing too much leg. Cause ain’t nobody wanna be the sluttiest mom at the playground (wink).

I also plan on wearing a baseball cap like probably way more than anyone ever should. There is something about tomboy chic that I just adore and its no secret that I am as girly as they come! It also dresses your outfit down which I love. I’ll have a tutorial on how I get these everyday loose curls coming up hopefully tomorrow over on the Mindy Mae Channel . I hope everyone is having an amazing spring I know my girls love pointing out all the “flower trees” so excited for warmer weather and I’m on the hunt for more casual skirts! Let me know if you find any that are to die for!  Now I’m off to devour an entire bag of Cadbury eggs. Did I mention that I love spring? MWAH!!!

Stay Lovely,

15 Freezer Meals For Under $100

15 Freezer Meals for Under $100.

Okay so the fact that I’m posting about cooking at all is laughable! A few weeks ago my little 3 year old Joslyn declared that she wanted a kitchen for her birthday and my husband tells her “You can just have your mom’s, she doesn’t use it.” At first I was like “gasp… how dare you??” then I was all like “Meh.. you’ve definitely got a point there so touche! I don’t know what is wrong with me! I came from a home where my mom was an incredible cook. She always wanted to teach me but I never was interested in learning. Now I suck at cooking and I hate myself everyday for it. I know I’m a woman and it should be ingrained into my soul but I guess I’m just an outlier like that. Another reason I don’t cook is that It takes time to plan It takes skill it takes desire and ain’t nobody got time for that! Mostly I hate making the mess so therefore I just don’t do it!

We would eat out every single night. I don’t even want to tell you how many times a week we ate at Cafe Rio cause its shameful and it would terrify you! Not only were we spend a damn fortune but most of it was garbage food that we should never allow yourselves or your family to eat. Unless you are raising a slew of future sumo wrestlers cause then thats exactly what you would want them to eat. Luckily for me I have a cute and super health conscious Sister in law Janae. who has Celiacs Disease. She invited me to split this 30 gluten freezer meal plan with her. I jumped right on board cause I was desperate to start feeding my family home cooked meals! Now I make a freaking delicious dinner for them every single day and it’s as easy as dumping contents from a ziplock freezer bag into my trusty crock pot. I might refer to her as my personal chef Ruby and she is the bomb.com!

We used this guide from Fall apart with joy She breaks down the recipes and shopping list you will need and she makes it so easy! It makes 30 meals for around $200 depending on the brands of all the ingredients you buy. We split the cost and the work and knocked out 30 meals in less than two and a half hours. It was actually really easy. We got to chat and rock out to chipmunk music and our kids all got to play together and babysit each other! My family seriously loves every meal they are seriously delicious! I just wanted to share for any one else who hates cooking but wants their family to eat yummy healthy food. Enjoy and I’d love to hear feed back on how you like the meals!!

Stay healthy,

Christine

Double Hooded Sweater

Viking Braid. That One Blonde Chick

Ok friends I finally jumped on the Viking Braid band wagon and I am a big fan!! I will most decidedly be wearing it on repeat for many many moons! I also will be wearing my favorite hoodie from Mindy Mae’s Market I am in love with them!! I might even have all four colors. Well cause you know what they say “You can never have too much of a good thing, duh” Well I added the “duh” but you get the gist.

If you follow Mindy Mae’s instagram account their beyond talented and darling stylists give so many beautiful ways to dress them up or down. I usually end up pairing mine with a pair of chucks and some leggings. Don’t fret though, they are the perfect length to cover your bum. Because you know I wouldn’t get caught dead being the no pocket butt slut. (Wink) These hoodies are the perfect way to side step all the controversy. So from the bottom of my heart thanks for that Mindy Mae’s!

In addition I FINALLY figured out how to put my extensions in for the perfect pony. 1. They don’t show. 2. They don’t tug on my scalp and hurt by the end of the day. Leave a comment if you would like to see a tutorial. Outfit details below.
