Life : 

We have been beating the January blues with a quick road trip to freshen up our spirits, it was just what we needed.  We’ve got home projects starting again, hoping to actually finish this house of ours.  New floors will be going in, bathrooms remodeled, a couple other details and we will be good to go.  Finishing up the planning stages before we tackle it all. Woo!
I am more in love with having four kids than ever before.  Major has finally started sleeping, Grae is the funniest and cutest thing ever (balancing out her extreme spice), Stella has found her “thing” in gymnastics and twirls and flips around my house all day, Harlo has a real knack for piano filling my home with sweet little notes.. It seems we are in a real groove with life, and my heart feels like it’s doing the work it was made to do.  Other than the quickly passing time, I am in absolute heaven with this season I’m in.
Mr. Miller’s business just received the chamber of commerce “small business of the year” award, which feels like the biggest honor.  My husband is an honest, talented businessman and for him to get  publicly recognized for something so close to our hearts is so amazing.  Proud of him and the work he’s done these past 10 years.

Style:

Loungy, cozy style is how I’m getting through January.  I have actually really loved my decision to cut bangs – I feel like I’ve got a hairstyle going whether my hair is down and curled, or up in a messy bun.  Definitely been a welcome change.
Oversized sweaters are on a daily rotation.  Picked up some recently for 75% off at the gap outlet, and this cute one here is from Scout & Cloth.  I’ll be happy when warmer weather sets in, but I sure will be sad to have to tuck my big comfy sweaters away!
Black skinnies are Rockstars from Old Navy.. because seriously, $20 jeans.
Glasses I get asked about nonstop, firmoo!

Beauty:

Loving a super natural looking fresh face right now.  A quick highlight and contour (HAC) made simple with my maskcara pallet.  I’ve been keeping it simple on my eyes lining in oak eyeshadow with a little guilded on my upper lid.  I’m less than 5 minutes out the door.

Get Out There, Gorgeous!

I have taken some much needed time off to regroup and recharge for the new year.  I’ve got some cool things planned for this year and I am so excited about this little blog of mine.  I really love this space and all of you who come to visit me here!

If you follow me on instagram, you know that I recently became an official Maskcara independent artist.  I am so thrilled to finally announce this!  I have been working on this for quite some time now.

If you’ve followed along for a long time, you also know that I’ve been with this company from the very beginning, using and loving their products and their mission.  I have chatted about them here, and have been helping you ladies figure out how to HAC via email and messages for years.  You have asked and asked for more videos, more info, more tutorials and I have been working hard to make that possible.  So it’s finally here!  I will be sharing video tutorials, answering questions, and building up a team of all of you who love it and want to share as well (because I know you already do!)

You can also now order online directly from me so I can help you and make sure you’re getting the support you need.  I’m SO excited about this – I know it’s going to be great.


(little known fact – this video was shot when I was 5 weeks pregnant with baby Maj!)

LIFE :

We have been coming off the family/holiday high this week.  I always dread the Monday after family leaves, but it’s not always terrible.  I do like getting my house back in order, slowing down a bit, and touching base with just my little crew.   I’ve tried not to plan much this week, and it’s been nice to take a little beat.

I am working on my daily habits! I used to work for a doctor who said often “we are a prisoner of our habits” and I know it’s true.  I’ve been trying to reset my internal clock to be more of a morning person (can that happen?? can you train yourself to become a morning person??), as well as make my bed each day, and give my house a once-over in the mornings.  I feel so much better when I do these things, but man alive… why is it so hard to make good habits stick, and so easy to pick up bad habits?? I’ll chat more about this as I continue on this journey, but I really feel strongly about being in control of your own life, and making good choices each day.  Time to put my money where my mouth is.

My Mr. Miller got a new church calling this week.  In our faith, for people who are willing to serve, they are prayed over and guided to specific “jobs” that serve our congregation.  Mr. Miller is no stranger to church service.  This  new calling will take up some time and effort on all our parts, but gosh, that guy makes it so easy to support.  I am one that serving others comes a little harder for (ex: I barely have time to wash my own hair – you want me to what??), but not Mr. Miller.  He thrives and enjoys serving God and others, and it is so good for me to witness.  I hope to be more like him in so many ways, and I’m so grateful he’s in my corner of the ring in this life.

Also note, as much as I respect and adore my Mr. Miller, sometimes I am out right ornery with him, and he does plenty of things that drive me crazy (like NEVER hanging the keys up on the key hook by the door).  I have gushed about him a lot this week, and so I feel it’s only fair to round it out with an honest representation of our relationship.  We can bicker and sarcastically jab each other all day, but at the end of the day (and especially when he’s not near me) I think very fondly of him. ;) Marriage can be tough, but it’s mostly the best.  Just always know that we are totally normal and like every single other couple in the world who fights about garbage chores, and how to spend the monthly budget. :P

STYLE:

Living in these turtle necks from Target.  Old Navy Rockstar jeans make it real easy on the budget when I’m moving in and out of jeans sizes like it’s my job (thank you pregnancy and post partum.. you are the weirdest).  And lace-up flats.. I think we discussed this in last week’s installment of life + style, in other words, where have you been all my life?

Life:

Life lately has been full!  Full days, full of kids, full schedules, full hearts.  I forget how much I love this time of year.  This week we have turned our heater on for the first time and I broke out my slippers!  My favorite thing is being cozy at home – slippers on my feet, a hot meal on my table, and a fire crackling in the fireplace.  Maybe I’m not as much of a summer girl as I thought I was. ;)  Truthfully, I fall in love with each season as it rolls past.  It’s like catching up with a new friend.  I forgot how happy and lovely and cozy fall was!

Since we rearranged bedrooms, Major has been sleeping so much better!  I am feeling like a new woman.  He has gone back to waking up once a night at 3:30 to eat – where before I couldn’t get him past midnight, then 2, then 4… So we are making progress for sure!  Speaking of that little honey man, he is about as nice as they get.  Days go by without him ever crying.  Which is good, because I think he’s the only kid in the house that is true for. ;)

Grae continues to shave years off my life in her own little ways – currently it’s finding pens, markers, pastels, etc. hiding around the house, and then displaying her artwork all over my living room.  For the love of Crayola, y’all.  I don’t even know what to do with that.  Remember my two perfect oldest girls who would have never DREAMED about coloring on furniture?  Yeah, I realize now it wasn’t my shining parenting keeping them from their artistic urges.  These babies come how they come, and Grae packs a punch wherever she goes.  I know she’s going to do good things in this world with that fire in her heart.. I just hope  I survive these days to see it. ha!

The big girls continue to grow at a rapid rate, they have moved on past princesses and dress-ups and now always want to do things like watch american girl youtube videos (Stella) or play roblox (Harlo) and beg for their own social media accounts and youtube channels and I just can’t even.  “It’s too fast!” I whine to Brady every single night, “They were babies yesterday, and they’ll be teenagers tomorrow.  Can’t we call someone?  Can’t we do something?  Do something!!” But mostly I’m just loving them in their stages, even though it breaks my heart how quickly they’ve gotten here.  Also, thanks to Chloe’s American Girl Doll Channel (or one of the many others..), Stella is asking for a trip to London for her 7th birthday, so there’s that.

Style:

I am officially in the thick of motherhood, where flats, and 5 minute hairstyles, and outfits I can sit on the floor in are my jam.  I’m not even mad about it.  Cozy sweaters are my soul mate, and lace-up ballet flats?  Are you even real?  Thank you for jazzing up my momiform, you darlings, you.  My top and sweater is from Scout & Cloth, and I’ve linked similar below.

**Sidenote: I am thinking of adding more video to the blog – like makeup tutorials, hairstyle ideas, day-in-the-life type stuff.  Is that of interest to you?  It really helps when you guys tell me what you like or want to hear more about, so leave a comment if there’s something specific you’d like me to chat about!
