1. STYLE:

Loose curls on my growing locks. Follow me on Snapchat for hair snaps on the daily. Username: chereesalter3

2. WEAR:

New makeup and my velvet black choker. Shop the look below!

3. EAT:

Quiche. It's so good I can't even. Try my recipe and find out why it's my new obsession.

4. WATCH:

Person of Interest. It's so intense, and Jim Caviesel is hardcore.

5. LOVE:

FALL FOLIAGE. It was absolutely GORGEOUS in Park City while I was on my girl's trip last weekend. The beauty of this world has me constantly in awe. Especially Utah. #utahisrad

6. WANT:

To be uplifted and encouraged by the general authorities this weekend during General Conference. It's healing to my soul to hear from the inspired leaders of the LDS church. Tune in with me at LDS.org on Saturday and Sunday, 10 am - 12 pm & 2 pm - 4 pm!  

This image is a printable I made from a quote I heard during the General Women's Conference last Saturday. Watch that here and I'll be sharing this printable and more tomorrow! I hope you all had an amazing month of September! 

Life Lately || February
Life Lately || February || ADOS

1. STYLING:

My best friend Olivia just started a YouTube channel for her beauty, fashion, and lifestyle videos and so we decided to collaborate! We did a No Mirror Makeup Challenge video for her channel and a Twisted Mermaid Hair Tutorial for mine! Olivia has the most beautiful, long and thick hair and I'm obsessed with how this style turned out. We're both posting the videos on Friday, so get excited!

2. WEARING:

My new Green Good Samaritime Watch from Arvo! It's everything thing I've dreamed of in a watch and more. I wear it almost ever single day. Did you know that when you buy a Good Samaritime watch 10% will be contributed towards a social cause? Cool huh?!  By choosing the color of your Good Samaritime second hand, you are also choosing a charity that will be benefitted by your purchase! 

3. EATING:

We went to Rooster's on 25th street in Ogden for our last fancy night out before this baby is born. We went to Wiseguys on 25th for our first date and lived nearby for the first three years of our marriage. It was nice to reminisce on how much our lives have changed over time and how we are happier than we ever could have imagined. I ordered the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and Matthew got the Sicilian Pizza. Oh! And they have the most amazing hummus appetizer that's not on the menu, but you can still ask for it! The food there is so delicious and the atmosphere is romantic and cozy. 

4. WATCHING:

The Grinder is one of our new favorite shows. It's family appropriate and super funny! I can't get enough of Rob Lowe ever since he showed up in Parks and Rec. I was never a Boy Meets World fan, but Fred Savage is awesome. Is that on Netflix?? I'm making a list of shows to save for after the baby is born. That might be on the list. 

5. CREATING:

Matthew and I have been brainstorming ways to bring in a little extra income and that's how these wall hanging designs were born! I have really enjoyed creating them and can't wait to start selling them on the shop TOMORROW! The design above is just one of the five I've created. They're handwoven around a 12" brass colored steel ring and decorated with wood accents. I love how modern, minimal, and perfect they are hanging in my home. I'll be sad to see them go!

6. PRACTICING: 

I accepted the challenge to Love Myself given by the Small Seed Blog and I have sincerely been practicing that habit. More than just loving my body, but my whole soul. I've been trying to love the things I am capable of. To love what I create and accomplish instead of criticizing myself that I'm not ________ enough. Most of all, to take a risk and not fear failure. To realize that a failed idea doesn't make me a failure. I've been working on praising myself and taking pride in my accomplishments rather than focusing on the things I haven't done. I'm so glad I took this challenge to heart, because it taught me something life changing. It taught me that I have the power to change how I perceive myself, body and soul. 

One more thing...

HAPPY LEAP YEAR! Matthew and I started a fun tradition four years ago to write a letter to each other to read the next leap year. I am so excited to read our letters and write ones to read four years from now!

1. STYLING:

Lots of loose curls and 3 day hair happening lately. I'm looking to get some layers added next week for my birthday (I'll be 25, people. Weird.) The key to keep my hair growing is to trim it often! Mermaid hair, I'm coming for you!

2. WEARING:

This is my mom-iform. Maternity shirt, leggings, duster knit cardigan and some boots. I wish I did more documenting of my favorite looks, but I might catch a few of my favorites during the third trimester before this pregnancy is over.

3. EATING:

With Matthew on a diet, I'm trying to make/eat healthier and more nutritional meals. A great snack is some plain greek yogurt sprinkled with frozen raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. Delicious and packed with protein for my growing babe! I'm also working on kicking up my activity level a notch. Heaven help me to stay motivated. I really want to be stronger and more prepared for labor this time around! 

4. WATCHING:

HGTV has always been one of my weaknesses, and I just recently jumped on the Joanna Gaines bandwagon. I'm loving watching all of these amazing transformations. Old homes reclaimed into something incredibly beautiful! 

5. CREATING:

If you read my previous post then you know I'm starting a quilting business called Stitch & Stork with my mother in law. I'm also creating some new decor for our ADOS Shop and I'm loving the challenge for my creativity. It makes my soul so happy. Follow me on IG for more updates! 

6. LOVING:

My amazing hunk of a husband has been working so hard to get this third bedroom finished for Turner so Grey can claim the nursery upstairs. He just started a class this week, is working full time, and he still makes it a priority to work on things that are important to me. I married such a selfless man, and I love him more than I knew was possible. I don't know what I did to deserve him, but I thank my Heavenly Father every day that he is in my life.


I hope you all had a wonderful month! Thanks for your support and love on my little ol' blog. It means more to me than you may know.
