August's Favorite Things

Here are a few of my favorite things from August.


This sweet picture.  We had pictures for Noel's family because everyone was in town at the same time! Leah Watkins (Leah Watkins Photography) took this sweet picture and captured a beautiful moment with my Charlie.  And yes...the humidity is realllll in NC.  Check out those whispies!



This quote.  The boys and I have been learning more about the prophets through the Gospel Art Kit that we have.  I had to write this quote down from Wilford Woodruff because it's so true...and so powerful.  It's scary that you have to make such major life decisions when you're so young, which makes it so important to be doing your absolute best.



Teaching:  I'm teaching all ballet this year and am really excited about it.  My classes are awesome and I'm really looking forward to this year.  And I definitely busted out my old garbage bag pants this year. Oh yeah.



Revlon BB Cream:  I didn't realize how much I loved this stuff until I ran out of it yesterday.  It's a great base for my regular makeup, but is also enough coverage in case I have to run out really quick and don't want to scare the public.  Great for my sensitive skin as well.



My necklace!  I do love a good monogram.  (And you can win one of your own, in the color of you choice here)

Not pictured would be the strawberry poppy seed salad from Panera Bread.  Whyyyy is it seasonal?  I do love that salad.

August has flown by!  But it was a great month.

Now it's your turn to link up.

1.  Link to your actual Favorite Things post.

2.  If you have an old post you want to use, that's totally fine!!  Just make sure you link back to my blog in some way.  (You can grab a Favorite Things button on the sidebar if you'd like)

3.  Go visit a few other bloggers and say Hi!  (I've met some pretty amazing people through link ups!)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Your dance pants remind me of my dancing days of wearing my stretchy pants with some cut off sweat pants over it. Oh how I miss those day! Can't believe August is over!

Yay for teaching ballet this year! I actually just enrolled in a beg. intermediate ballet class for the fall and can't wait to get back into the flow of dancing again. I'm sure my inner thighs and calves will thank me later haha.

What a great skill to have to be able to teach dance on the side! I love that quote and totally agree, sometimes it is scary that we make such big decisions when we are so young.
