30x30 6

Hello, my friends!

It's time for 30x30! It's never too late to join in on all of the fun! 


Y'all... Let's talk about how much I love this link up. I was able to realize how many clothes I have in my closet that I don't even wear.... It prompted me to get rid of a TON of clothes that I didn't need (and honestly, I didn't even like it). So even though this has been going on for a while, I would encourage you to participate in this fantastic challenge. 

Now, on to the clothes! 

Shirt and Shorts: The Limited; Shoes: Chinese Laundry; Earrings: Kendra Scott.

Shirt and Skirt: Express; Shoes: Chinese Laundry; Necklace: The Limited

Shirt: Banana Republic; Jeans: Lauren Conrad Brand (Kohl's); Shoes: Sperry's; Belt: The Limited (came with a shirt); Earrings: Kendra Scott. 

See you tomorrow, dear friends! You won't believe the awesome stuff I found in Pinterest this week... Be sure to come back and check it out! :)

A fast week

Hello my wonderful friends!

This week flew by- mostly, because we were traveling across the world... But still, it was a great week! Here are just a few of the highlights:

1. We went to the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro. It was incredible.

2. Drinking lemonade out of a mason jar. I mean, come on. It's summer time. I love it.

3. Being reunited with my best friends and roommates. Oh, and performing with one of them on the Miss Arkansas stage (and with 2011 Miss AR Outstanding Teen, Ashton Campbell).

4. Celebrating my husband's birthday yesterday... We'll have a special one on one date next week. :)

5. MY NEPHEW WAS BORN!!! Max Kohen Johnson... Isn't he absolutely perfect? Oh, and I get to meet him tonight!!! Woohoo!

It's Okay.... Birthday edition

Hello, sweet friends!

It's time for "It's Ok Thursdays"

Its Ok Thursdays

And because it is my precious husband's birthday, this one is dedicated to him.

DJ, it's okay...

.... that you sing (loudly) when you put gas in either of our cars. I pretend to be embarrassed by it, but secretly, I love it. 

.... that you ride shopping carts around the grocery store like they're scooters. It shows that you are going   to be such a fun daddy... Someday. ;)

.... that you do this hilarious dance-sway-bounce thing every time a song with a beat comes on. It's a total DJ move. And it's really cute.

.... that after 3 years of being together, this is the first birthday where we get to see each other (long distance was dumb, wasn't it?).

.... that you are much more knowledgeable than I am in pretty much every area of life (except for directions and music).

.... that sometimes, you get so distracted when you're driving down the interstate, and that you don't realize that you are only driving 58 mph.

.... that you only drink sweet tea.

.... that you are one of the best chefs ever. The only downside about your AWESOME job is that I don't get to eat the yummy food that you used to make nearly as often.

.... that you married me. Seriously, the past 3 years together, and the almost 1 year of marriage have been life changing. You make me a better person, and you love me unconditionally. Thank you for always fighting for us, and for being the incredible man you are.

I love you, DJ. Happy Birthday. :)

Pinteresting things in my life.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!! WOOHOO! I'm sure a lot of you are posting patriotic things, but I'm going to stick to my usual stuff. :)

two braids are better than one. Yes.


Beautiful hair. Definitely drying this.

love mixing patterns and colors, so my style


I seriously need to change some things around here. So they will look like that.

super cute


Look at this outfit. I guess it's patriotic. Haha but it's beautiful, isn't it?!

Flowers in the kitchen


Isn't this kitchen breathtaking?

Love this style


This makes me wish I could pull off bangs. Darn you, round/triangle shaped face!

Ravello, Italy.


Let's take a girls trip there, shall we? Who's in?!

DIY remake an oversized t-shirt...


It seems like you could turn an oversized t-shirt into something that looks like this. Don't you agree??
