Husband Does My Makeup

Caleb and I filmed the "Boyfriend Does My Makeup" tag. Of course this would be the husband edition. Make sure to watch the video, and here are some close-ups of the makeup look, "Terrific Tuesday Tonight".


I have so say, from a distance it looks pretty good! These photos are unedited. I think my camera must have a setting that makes your skin perfect. My skin looks great here and you can't see the crazy foundation work Caleb did. Hmmm..

OOTD with the new makeup look.

I actually liked the color combo on my eyes. As funny as it is, I am going to try it myself! 
You can see the foundation/concealor work from Caleb more in the photos.

That eyeliner though.

Easter | Resurrection Day

Here is a little taste of Easter with the Byrds. 

She was definitely interested in the colorful round things randomly on the grass. She would place them in the basket when told, but had plans of her own. Scarlett made a run for it and had us chase her the whole time. The child is definitely the outdoors type. She enjoyed the eggs indoors, shaking them and finding candy inside. 

Scarlett's outfit: 
Bunny Shirt: Target
Leggings: Target
Bow: Forever21
Sandals: Salt Water Sandals in brown. (Got hers from Amazon for half the price.)

Cardigan: H&M 
Tank: Forever21
Pants: Express
Shoes: Target

Being the only grandchild she did receive a lot of Easter goodies. That's fine with Caleb and I.... more for us to eat when she goes to bed. 

Easter Sunday or resurrection day was wonderful. Scarlett wore the dress that has been hanging in her room since she was born. It was given to us from someone that had a Scarlett as well and passed to us. Of course we had a wonderful time with our church family. The weather was perfect and we dyed Easter eggs after our lunch and nap. My mother-in-law was able to stay with us for the Easter weekend so I got to physically and mentally relax from motherly duties. Very nice. 

Her shoes and bow: Target 

Tired toddler.

 The husband and myself.

I didn't really own an "Easter" dress, but I recently bought this one (Forever21), and it sufficed. It's probably nothing to a lot of people, but this outfit is definitely out of my comfort zone in a few ways. One, it's a dress. Two, I'm not wearing black. I am pretty sure I had a dress like this in the 90's. It is a slight oversized/baggy dress, but I used the belt too look more "put together" for such an important day. You can barely see in the photo, but the dress has light anchors all over it. I paired it with my tan ankle booties from Target (which I have been loving), and gold rings from H&M. Then there is my dashing husband and his bow tie. Love it. 


She loved dying the eggs so very much! 

Thank you all for taking the time to read my posts! Every view and comment makes my heart warm! Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Now, time to work out a little harder so I can eat the rest of this Easter candy.

Shop My Stuff | Instagram Shopping

Ever shopped on Instagram? I shop on "Insta" all the time... If you aren't familiar with this, I shall explain. There is a whole community of shops that sell on Instagram. You can find new and gently used items from clothing to home decor for GREAT PRICES. 

How can you buy off of Instagram? That confused me at first as well, but it easier than your normal online shopping. A shop will announce an upcoming post (selling time) and what kind of things will be sold. When it comes time to sell (as announced) the seller will post one item at-a-time just like you would normally post a Instagram picture. Each picture will have details about the item and price. The fun part is coming this... the first person/commenter to leave their Paypal e-mail gets the item. In a case where the person doesn't want it, or didn't pay for the item (there is a certain amount of time a payment is expected) it goes to the next commenter in line. So the only thing you have to do is have your Paypal ready and up-to-date. I didn't realize my Paypal had an old address on it and a package was sent to my old address! The seller will send an invoice to your Paypal and you will pay by logging in to your Paypal account and paying through the sent invoice. I hope I am making sense. 

Now, the exciting news.

I now have an Instagram shop! My first post is tonight (April 16) and it is a small collection of gently used women's clothing. I will be selling many things on there, but decided to start small for the my first post. So make sure you are following me on Instagram! By following me you can also see some of the other shops I follow!

I haven't posted pictures of my husband and I very much on the blog. So you probably can guess where this is headed. Here are some pictures... of me and my husband... on the blog. These were taken via iPhone before we left for church. No fancy camera work. In fact, we had to use a auto camera app and couldn't get Scarlett to stand still for a family picture. We will be getting legit pictures taken soon to help support a good friend going on a mission trip. Even if the money wasn't for that I would still use her. She. Is. Talented. I will have a HUGE blog post dedicated to that. Keep your eyes peeled.
