Easter Sunday || Dream Closet

Easter Sunday ~ I was torn between the polkadots and the jean jacket, so I thought I'd add them both! I love mixing prints. Which would you pick? I think this dress is so beautiful and would be lovely with either. 
Have a glorious day {heart}

Taupe and Lace || Nail Art

This week for my nails, I used one of my nail stamps. I love how they turned out. I highly recommend nail stamping if you like nail art. Super fast and easy with impressive results.

Meal Plan || Number One

Hi!!! It's been way too long, I've missed you all and am looking forward to getting back into this blogging thing. If this is your first time here, welcome!!! 

I love meal planning, yes this is true. Since I love it so much, it really never occurred to me how much others don't. I've wanted to share my meal plans for sometime now, then the months keep passing. The other day I was reading a blog and the girl stated how much she hated meal planning then there were three comments in the comment section also saying the same thing, I realized I needed to do this already! So this is my new adventure...I'll be posting my weekly meal plan here recipes or links to recipes will be included. I'll be posting the week after so I can comment on any changes I made. I'll also share favorite side ideas, favorite brands, and favorite regularly made items.
