This morning we spent hours waiting for the girls to get their  makeup and hair done - all part of our secret project!  I'm sure it went slower in part because this dude insisted on getting a makeover too:

He's just too cute!

Dance Party in the USA

We spent the day in Minnesota working on a secret LLR project.  In the evening, the girls threw some music videos up on the TV and had a dance party!

I love this photo because it looks like Alexyss is bowing down to Snoop Dogg (is that how it's spelled?).   It was a lot of fun to watch, and I even danced a bit for a workout!

Busy Day

Today was so busy I forgot to take a picture!  Well, that's not technically true...I did a swap with someone so I had a dozen pictures of random LLR items.  But nobody needs to see that. 

I drove down to Des Moines today and spent the afternoon with my brother.  Then I went to a swap, picked up some new items, and drove home.  It doesn't sound like much but it was a lot of time on the road, and I am exhausted!  The rest of our week involves traveling and will be crazy, so I gotta get some rest while I can. 

XOXO, Bethany

Happy Birthday, America!

It's the Fourth of July, yay!  This year it coincided with Wear A Dress Tuesday, so I rocked my favorite red dress and some eagle leggings.

Unfortunately, sparklers don't take such great pictures early in the morning, lol.

Stepping Out

Today I did something waaaayyyy out of my comfort zone.  Since tomorrow is the 4th of July, and we still had some Americana leggings left, we headed out to give them away!  We went to the mall here in Fort Dodge, and I had to approach random people and offer them free leggings.  Sounds simple, I know, who doesn't like free stuff?  But it totally freaked me out.

After preaching at Eagle Grove this morning, I returned to Minnesota to join Joel with the Magnuson family.  We were all hanging outside, and Oliver, who had been playing in the grass a couple yards away, started crying out, "Bunny! Bunny! Bunny!"  At first we thought he saw a rabbit, and then we realized he was calling out my nickname, Aunt Bunny.  I rushed over to see what he needed, and found him like this:

This weekend my friend Bridget is having her Bachelorette party in Chicago, but I was not able to make it.  Instead, I drove my parents to Minneapolis to drop them off on their European vacation!  However, at the gas station, I did find this:

So it's basically like I'm there, right?

Beach, Please

I finally made it to the beach today.  Bliss.

And I got to read a few chapters of this book.  The Bishop referenced it in her sermon at the ordering service this year, so I've been wanting to read it.  It's intriguing and inspiring and I can't wait to see where it goes!

Face Mask

I did a face mask today, to help promote all the goodies in my Posh party!  Also because masks are amazing.  I feel so fresh and so clean after, even if I look rather insane during.

I hate that I've been looking older lately (I'm not 20 something anymore, whaaaa) so skin care is where it's at!

Well, we tried Blue Apron, so I decided to give Hello Fresh a shot as well.  It's pretty much the same idea - a meal delivery service.  Our box arrived today!
