MARCH : random instagrams

sorry for the lack of blogging this week!
I feel like I've been running around trying to keep up and fit everything in the last few days.
My weeks are starting to get busier, which is nice as I feel like I've had a long winter break. :)

here's a roundup of some of my favorite instagrams from March.
love this quote--so good.

I had the priviledge of helping a friend, Bekah, at a Bright Lights leaders training several weeks ago. such a fun day with these girls!

If/when I ever have my own daughter, I will blow so much money on cute clothes like these for her people will think I'm crazy.
not even kidding.
Gap has some of the best style and I never tire of shopping there.

this, my friends, is my new obsession:
a curling wand.
okay so my hair has never curled with a regular curling iron very well at all, but this thing actually works and the curls last forever in my hair!
I'm smitten with it.

we think we're really quite awesome, and so far no one has told us otherwise. :)

and speaking of spring--I'm glad it is warm, but that also means mud. :(

no coincidence, people. :)

  1. Loved seeing some of the highlights of your month via instagram! :)

    P.S. I agree about the Gap dresses, so adorbs.

  2. Looks like you had a great month! Love the photos. Instagram is like the death of the camera. It's so much easier to just snap a quick Ig photo than to haul the big guns. I need to take more "camera" pictures.

  3. Yep, I watched 'em when I was little and thought they were the most amazing thing ever...how wrong I was.

  4. I think I am going to have to try a curling wand. My hair NEVER stays in curls when I use a curling iron!

    Hope you have a blast this weekend!

  5. We still have those movies!! I wonder why?

  6. Just clicked through from your comment on Made because my oldest daughter is also Hannah Elise so I had to investigate when I saw your name.

  7. I'm just a "little" late on commenting on this post! [grin] Love that picture of you in your cowl!
    Oh my goodness, I am totally doing the same thing with my kiddos when/if I ever have them. Looking at all those cute adorable outfits makes me wish I never grew up, myself!
    Yours Truly...

  8. Even your phone pics are beautiful and creative, Hannah! One of the highlights of my March was the leaders training conference + finally getting to meet you & talk about photography, Bright Lights, and other such lovely things. ;) Many blessings, Hannah!! <3


please leave a comment -- I would love to hear your thoughts on this post!! :)
