Happy Easter

Yesterday was Easter and Josh and I finally took a picture together! We started off the morning by seeing what the Easter Bunny brought us, followed by delicious waffles topped with whipped cream!

Then we got ready for church and taught Sunday School. And then when we came home, I studied for finals.

At 5:00, we were invited to Tahnee's in-laws to celebrate her 22nd birthday. It was a great meal and amazing dessert!!

I wished we could have been with the Neilson's while they blessed Rhys and Brady and everyone got together, but we are leaving WEDNESDAY for California!!!! We are so excited!!! I can't wait to see everyone and have my family sealed together...again! We will also be celebrating our one year anniversary...where did the time go?!?!

Spring Fling

I know many of you think I shop like crazy, but just for the record...I don't. I covet and look, but don't buy. is that time of year that I absolutely love...SKIRT SEASON!!

When it is nice and warm outside, I love my skirts. My favorites are elastic waistbands, I feel like they are so casual and comfortable, yet still so adorable. Yesterday, I went to meet with ModBod about what I will be wearing for their fashion show. I thought for sure they would tell me what to wear. So I hadn't even thought about it much. But when I got there, they were like, pick anything, but we are trying to promote our basics. Hmmm...anything?? I grabbed a couple things and went to dressing rooms. Well lucky enough for me, I was in love with the first outfit I tried on! It was a 3/4 sleeve white shirt with a gray, vintage-style, flowy skirt. Something I probably wouldn't purchase, but it was really flattering on and the skirt was so light that I thought it would be great for the spring/summertime. I tried to find a picture of it on their website, but no luck :( Then I was in the mood...

Later that day, I was online looking at my favorite stores and came across this little beauty from Downeast.
Isn't it so springy? I'm a little obsessed :/ The only problem is, Downeast skirts kind of fit me I am not going to get too hung over it, but it's different and unique. What do you think? Well my birthday is coming up so maybe I'll splurge ;)

Provo's Next Top Model

Ok...maybe not quite that extreme. But I have been chosen to help out with a "fashion show" at the next Women's Expo in Orem. The company is ModBod. Now for a little background...

For those of you who do not know me very well or have recently met me but still don't know everything about me, I was a little involved with these modest fashion shows back in the day. Now I'm talking high school. High school was the most awkward time for me. But I still liked to be involved in what I could be. I was in a Beautifully Modest and Nordstrom fashion show, promoting modest dress for teenagers. So when I saw this ad, I thought, why not? In all reality, I thought for sure there would be thousands of girls that e-mail a picture of themselves wanting to be the star of the show and I would never hear back from the ModBod again, but I was wrong. Friday night, I checked my email and they want me to be in it. I was just laughing and couldn't believe it. The show is going to be on April 22 and 23, so if you're in town, come check it out. My cousin, Karilyn also got the gig, so we will both be in the show. That is my exciting news for the day!!
