As part of a promotional post today, I took some party pictures with our LuLaRoe mascot, LuLaRex!  She's my favorite.

There isn't much better than a blow-up pink T-Rex in a giant party hat.

The Aftermath

Last night some crazy storms came through central Iowa and Fort Dodge.  We hung out in the basement while the lights flickered, the tornado sirens went off and the wind went crazy.  Luckily we never lost power, and the internet was only down for a few minutes (phew!).   Compared to our neighbors we got off easy, though this was our view out the backdoor this morning.

So last week I put together outfits featuring my new favorite skirt, the Lola.  When no one bought the outfit in my size...well, I had to make it mine.  So here I am in a 2x Lola with a 3x Classic T, tucked in and bloused over.

I'm also wearing my new favorite Lipsense combo - Violette, Sheer Berry, Violette.  It's bold and beautiful and I love it!

I've recently started re-watching Gossip Girl.  It was one of the first shows I binge-watched a few years ago.  It's a total soap-opera, but I love it anyway.  I have to say it is really fun to watch it again knowing the big reveal at the end of the series, aka who Gossip Girl is.

I was so psyched today to wear my new bee leggings.  My dad noticed them right away and loved it, since his nickname for me his Honey Bee. 

After church we went to a 1st birthday party, and then took mom out to brunch for Mother's Day.  Guess what they were making at the pancake station?  Guess!  Bee pancakes!!

So today we went to the dollar store for some balloons and such, and we found selfie sticks!  For a dollar!  It was awesome.  

Then during dinner, I decided to open a nice cold bottle of root beer for us to share.  Not realizing that it was a twist off, I was using my bottle opener.  Poorly.  I ended up jerking it too hard, and smashed the bottle against my dinner plate, sending root beer everywhere. 

Here's where those two stories relate:

Saying Goodbye to a Style

I  forgot to tell the group we said goodbye to Madison, and all of a sudden we had some people asking about the style. 

So this is the creative announcement I came up with: 

Madison Goodbye


Haha, I crack myself up. 

XOXO, Bethany

Last Day (Kinda)

Today was one of my last full-ish days at Friendship Haven.  I have officially put in notice that I will be done at the end of May.  And thankfully, they have hired someone to take my place starting June 1st!  I am excited to officially move on to the next stage of our plan...and officially terrified of what is to come.  Uncertainty is exciting and scary at the same time!

Today we ventured to Pocahontas, IA to meet up with an old seminary friend of mine.  Kent is traveling through the U.S. in an RV right now, and just happened to be in our area.  It was really fun to have lunch together and share about everything that has happened in our lives in the past 7 (!) years since graduation. 

Unfortunately, I did not get a picture of this reunion. 

So instead you get this picture from the multi-consultant sale we did in Story City this evening.

Today I wore a leggings material Carly (so comfy), and leggings as capris!  I'm so excited to use this hack all summer.  Instead of wearing uncomfortable spanx, I can wear my amazing leggings and still be cool!

I'm so enjoying this beautiful spring weather.  We are trying to spend as much time outside as we can before the heat of summer hits!
