Bridesmaids Night

bridesmaids1

Last Saturday I hosted a bridesmaids night at my house! It was not the bachelorette party. Saturday was just a great opportunity for us to all work together on the wedding favors and to bond with one another. It was so awesome to have the girls in one room again! We drank wine, laughed, and finished filling the wedding favors with candy. I love my friends and family so much I can hardly describe. We always have a good time together.

DIY Shampoo & Moisturizing Squares

These are some fun DIY bath time bars I made. I created my own variation based off of a couple recipes I found online. The darker bar is a shampoo block.

It was so quiet… I was really wanting to write to you guys but, I didn’t really know what to say. Haha, who would have thought not having a job would affect me so much. I realized that I have been working non-stop since I was 16 years old. Maybe I was letting my jobs define me too much? Edward keeps telling me to stop worrying about not having a job so much. He says to try my hardest at getting a new one but, then to focus on myself! I have been trying to listen to him (He is the best, most handsome, most smartestest guy ever.) So, I have been working out more then ever…. I feel so much stronger… so rested…. so different.
