Love Him Like His Dog Does

As wives, I think most of us are often on the look out for how we can love our husbands better. We try to set goals and do better and improve our relationships. So when I heard the song "Like My Dog" by Billy Currington I laughed and thought, "THAT is some dang good relationship advice."

If you haven't heard this song yet, take a listen, it's pretty funny AND you might be able to sift through the song and get a few really great wifey goal ideas!

Victoria's Secret Sport Review

This past weekend I recieved my Influenster Vox Box with a brand new sports bra and capri yoga pants from Victoria's Secret Sport Collection. I will say, for sports wear that I've been DYING to own, it met and exceeded every expectation! 

I received the "Incredible by Victoria's Secret Sports Bra" and "Knockout by Victoria's Secret Crop" bottoms.

Thoughts on the bra...

  • I love that you can get it in YOUR band and cup size. None of that Small, Medium, Large stuff here! 
  • A little hard to get on, but once it was on I KNEW my chest was going to stay in place for my entire workout. And it did.
  • The support was incredible. I wore it to my 1.5 yoga class the other day and did a HIIT workout this evening and it worked perfectly in both cases.
Thoughts on the crops...
  • Really thick. Which personally I LOVE! No butt crack showing through here.
  • Flattering. They made my butt look amazing. My husband told me so.
  • They moved with me. I think I only had to fix one wedgie for that whole 90 minute yoga class, which is a record low for me.
Overall I loved my products from Victoria's Secret Sport. Though they are a little pricey, I can see how the quality of them will make them last longer than any other sports clothes I own. I'll just save up and splurge occasionally. ;)

(I received these products for testing purposes from Influenster. All opinions are my own.)

12 Times to the Temple

When Colten and I got married a little over a year ago we set a goal:

To go to the temple together at least once a month.

And at the end of August, we did it. We officially went for the twelfth consecutive month.

Going to the temple with my husband strengthened my relationship with him. It helps me keep an eternal perspective and give me courage and hope when things are rough. It reminds me of the eternal promises I made with my Heavenly Father and with my husband, and of the infinite future we have together.

The temple IS my happy place. The temple with my husband, is heaven.

Where to Buy Mickey Ears for your Disney Trip

Wearing Mickey ears is a tradition for many Disney park goers. I've worn them a few times there and have always loved having them! I was researching where I could buy ears for my trip this upcoming October and found a ton of places to buy Mickey ears besides Disneyland. Many of them are unique, which will be fun because they won't look like everyone else's in the park. 

Halloween Ears
These are the ones I purchased for my trip and it they are SO cute!

Red Minnie Mouse Ears

Sparkly Minnie Ears

Star Wars Ears

Which ones would you pick to wear to Disneyland?

DIY Malibu Diet Coke

I've been on the Dirty Diet Coke train for a few months now (toot toot!) and when going to a local soda shop the other day I tried a Malibu Dr. Pepper. I immediately knew I needed this in Diet Coke form. So the next day I went home and made my own and it was heavenly.


(1) 12 ounce can of Diet Coke
(1) shot of Torani Vanilla Syrup (here)
(1) shot of Torani Coconut Syrup (here)

Instructions: Pour half can into a large cup. Add 1 shot Torani Vanilla Syrup and
 1 shot Torani Coconut Syrup. Finish adding can to cup. Enjoy!


If you don't want to buy the syrups just for yourself, throw a girls night out featuring Malibu Diet Cokes and spoil your friends! Or skip on over to your local Maverick and treat yourself using their flavor shots. It's seriously that simple.

Let me know if you try this recipe, I'd love to know what you thought of it!

Mickey Ear Decisions, aka the Life Changing Kind of Decisions

When I started cosmetology school I told Colten that as my graduation present I wanted to go to Disneyland. He agreed, and since we honeymooned there we thought it would be fun to go back when we weren't exhausted as crap from the wedding and driving 12 hours and Colten losing his wallet (which is a whole story of it's own). 

With some planning on my parents part, we've now booked a trip to Disney in October. YAY!

Instead of spending my husband's entire paycheck on a pair of Mickey ears once we are there (hyperbole for the win), I decided to get on Etsy and see what those creative women out there are selling. 

Now I've narrowed it down to three! 

Which one is YOUR favorite? And which one should I rock in Disneyland next month?
