How It Was Styled Part2 - Wife's Day Out

Hello lovelies, this is part 2 of my blog post titled 'How It Was Styled-Wife's Day Out.' I wanted to give you all an idea of what I wore and how you can create the entire look yourself. Although I wore some things a little differently,  there are still some of the may elements that can easily be recreated. This style of outfit is not only cute, comfy, but very affordable.  Don't forget to check out part 1 of this post here: How It Was Styled Part1

The blazer I am wearing was purchased in February, and I finally got a chance to wear it for my date with my husband.  I know it seems like, I would have worn it right away, but I look for the perfect occasion to wear certain things. I hope, I am not the only person who does this? ;)

How It Was Styled - Wife's Day Out

Hello lovelies, welcome back to another edition of How It Was Styled! This post features, something I never usually get a date with my husband.  Truly, we never really get an opportunity to be together without the kids. Work, life, kids, appointments, can all get in the way. My  wise friend, once told me that, you need time to yourselves, away from the kids. Not that the kids are bad, by any means,  or that your life is over because you have kids, but you find that you need to make necessary adjustments. Before we had kids to juggle,  we had regular dates with each other. It should definitely carry on into the marriage,  but somehow it stopped.
I mentioned date nights, in our case it will be more of  day time date,  but to my husband,  this was a foreign concept.

Somehow,  he seems to have turned around. It's not like we never go out, but the one on one time,  decreases significantly once you get married and have children. It's by no means a bad thing, but it just means couples have to start making their marriage, their relationship a priority.
I  truly enjoyed my wife's day out, we ate at Ted's Montana Grill. We had never been there before,  and the food is so delicious. Everything including the food you eat is served fresh daily, not many restaurants can say that! We enjoyed these items from the menu:
Karens flyin-d Bison Chili
Bison Nachos
Red Rock Bison Burger
Onion Rings
George's Cadillac Burger
French fries

For those of you who may not know what Bison is, it's Buffalo Meat. I  let my husband try that one, he's more adventurous with foods than I am. I like to stick with my tried and true :)

The food is so much that if you're not super hungry at the time, you will be taking leftovers back with you. The appetizers are so huge, that you almost won't have room for the main course. Here are some pictures from our time at Ted's Montana Grill.

Hugs,

Frederica

Art is in the heart series August

Hello lovelies,  I  hope you have been keeping up with the art is in the heart series. As well as getting some  enjoyment, from the posts! We started this series this Summer as a way to keep busy, but most of all we definitely love being creative, nothing is more kid friendly and fun.  Arts and crafts, DIY Projects, have taken on a whole new meaning to me.

There is something magnificent about taking a project from Point A to Point B, for beautiful!

My daughter is the best at doing this, she can transform cereal boxes, scrapbook paper,  and make the most amazing wall art, or cards to brighten someone's day! I fell in love with these projects that we did, so I've decided that these should  not only be for our  Summer Projects. You will get to see, more things we create periodically.

There is love in being creative, specifically when you get to experience your child's creativity first hand. I love when my daughter explains her projects to me, the details about how and why, these projects were created.

Lately,  she loves inspirational words and loves to draw her own pictures.  I found a very great Art Book for her at Barnes and Noble, by Parragon Publishers! She loves it, and practices freehand drawings every chance she gets. Parents, take the opportunity to foster your child's creativity.  If you want to be apart of what your children are doing try not to ask so many questions or ask if you can help out with anything. I know weird, right??  But most kids, as they get older anyway, don't  like you to ask questions before they are done doing something.  Become a silent observer, cheerleader,  friend without hovering.

My daughter,  doesn't  like for me to peek at her projects, until they are completely finished.  That's when I get all of the details about the  colors,  items used, or any other relevant details. Most likely,  you have the items you will use regularly around your house.  There are thousands of projects, and ideas that you can find on Pinterest.  If you haven't joined yet, you need to.

It's a great place to get ideas, on how you can get started using arts and crafts with your family.

Some of the items we made this week are featured. We used common household items,  scrapbook paper,  scissors,  glue, markers, crayons, but most of all creativity.

If your projects don't come out the way you like at first, please don't give up, it's about trial and error and plenty of practice.  This can become a substitute for game night, and is great time to talk to your family in the process.
