ZERO editing. Just know that is not normal for boudoirs. I just really wanted to shoot them RAW and make a point that I am willing to put myself out there. Me a year ago would have defiantly tweaked all of these photos to make my body look a certain way. Me now says f*&% it I am who I am. I’m not a size 0 (try a size 8/9) I’m a normal girl with the only body I know. I can’t even say normal body because there IS NO SUCH THING. I have stretch marks, scares, blemishes, moles, all the things. Love me or hate me, this is who I am.
Besides the fact that I just showed you pics of our dirty house, Easter 2018 was perfect! Mila seemed to love the endless amount of attention and goodies sent her way. She even got the hang of picking up easter eggs and putting them in her basket (at least for 2 minutes) until she was off to the next thing. She got so many sweet outfits, stuffed piggies and ducks, and even a huge bubble machine from aunts and uncles it made us so grateful for all the good people in our lives. I hope your easter was awesome and you got to spent with the ones you love! xo
This was recipe I came across while I canvased for amazing sugar cookie recipes last week. I had so many people send me their recipes so I had to just close my eyes and pick one and this one didn't disappoint! They came out fluffy, beautiful and taste delicious! They aren't as sweet as I anticipated which I think is almost better especially if adding frosting!
SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE
- 3 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
In large bowl mix:
- 1/2 cup of shorting
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla
- 1 cup of sour cream
Bake at 350 degrees. The recipe said to bake for 12 minutes but I only baked them for 7 so I would suggest putting the timer on for 7 and then check them after. I tend to like mine a little more moist almost unbaked.
I looked everywhere to find the perfect Christmas dress, Zara, HM, Old Navy, TJ Maxx, Ross, you name it I looked and of course I end up at the 11th hour buying the most simple and sweet red sweater dress from where else but Target. OR.... as I like to call it Tar-shay. Shouldn't known I would end up there.
