Easter Sunday 2017

(Pictures taken by my brother) 
Dress: Ross
Shoes: Shoe Carnival 
Earrings: Sam Moon


Easter has come and gone, and we are back to another week of happenings, but not without remembering what Jesus did for us on the cross......because he defeated death and conquered the grave, and that is something to celebrate and forever renew our perspective on how we live out our life! 

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend, because I for one had a wonderful time visiting with family and carrying out yearly traditions. On Saturday we had our first (of the weekend) Easter celebration with my moms side of the family and that was a relaxing day visiting with everyone and eating BBQ. After we left that celebration my family and I went to go see a movie and then we decided to try IN-AND-OUT burger for the first time (and also because I have been wanting to go) and that was definitely a fun memory as we were all in rare form and laughing our heads off! 

Sunday morning we woke up and went to church with our grandparents and our aunt and uncles family. Then after church we headed out to my other grandpa's house for our second Easter celebration with my dad's side of the family where we also ate BBQ (apparently it's kind of a small town Texas tradition). As always there was our annual Easter egg hunt, and the funny thing is that all the cousins are now 17-23 years old, but we still hunt Easter eggs! 

This Easter I didn't get a chance to make myself a dress, but I did find this lovely dress at Ross and fell in love with the color, cut, style, and print. The print actually reminds me of something you would find on The House That Lars Built because it has such a natural and earthy print which I LOVE! It's also great because it is 100% wash and wear so this will be seen in the classroom on many occasions (like yesterday). Since the floral print of the dress is so unique and natural, I decided to style my hair in a crown braid and even found some wildflowers (or weeds) to sprinkle amongst the braid which made me feel so whimsical. 

How did you spend your Easter?

  1. Such a gorgeous outfit! Glad to hear you had a wonderful Easter weekend. (You'd never had In-and-Out before? Poor thing. ;) Guess that's something we Californians take for granted. :) )
    Blessings,

    1. I KNOW RIGHT! Apparently it's not as popular in Texas as it is in California:)

  2. I love your hair! It's always so neat and pretty! Do you recommend any good tutorials? You should totally do one yourself if you haven't already!

    1. Thanks Megan! I learned how to do this hairstyle by looking up videos for crown braids (especially for short hair). I will probably do a tutorial sometime, but I haven't done one for this style yet.

  7. I love your hair, and I love the fresh flowers.

    We've been to California twice and have had In and Out multiple times each visit (sometimes on the way). Its not in our region.

    I think its great that your family still does egg hunts. Mom (and usually Mamau too although she abstained this time because she thought we'd get enough sweets this week at my sister's wedding) gives us candy. And we hang out with family, eat tons of food, and watch the kids hunt eggs (most of them are toddlers so its pretty funny).
