My many roles go beyond mom they also include, preschool teacher, Children's church teacher, youth pastor, wife, and one role I love Christ follower.

Creating a Seasonal Fashion and Beauty List
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
If you’ve been enjoying the summer but still would like to cross some other fun activities and beauty to do’s off of your list, there’s still time! Instead of making excuses and cramming your day full of other activities, there’s no time like the present to sit down and make a fashion and beauty list entailing a few fun activities you still want to try before the summer vanishes.
So, what will your beauty and fashion list consist of? Well, that’s entirely up to you, but here are some ideas to get you thinking and excited. That way you can accomplish these fun and fashionable ideas on your bucket list before the summer comes to a screeching halt.
Buy fun neon makeup, stat!
Neon makeup is all the rage this summer, so why not head to your nearest beauty store and stock up on some beautiful shades of lipstick? Hot pink is bold and beautiful and will look perfect with an elegant dress. There are other fun colors too, such as bright eyeshadow. Create an ombre effect on your eyelids and your eyes will certainly pop! Don’t forget about black eyeliner followed by a metallic liner as well.
The gypsy and wanderlust style is popular these days and to get the look you should find statement clothing pieces on bohemian style clothing stores. Get festival ready with dresses and rompers that’ll compliment your style and don’t afraid to try something new that you usually wouldn’t wear. Especially if you’re headed to a festival, don’t be afraid to go all out!
A maxi dress with an open back is flirty and whimsical, and a romper with the perfect amount of lace may help you feel confident to ask that boy out on a date. As you experiment with new whimsical clothing, don’t forget to be yourself, and the rest will come together. Enjoy the final weeks of summer looking and feeling your very best!
Pastel and patterned leggings
Another fun trend that’s currently in style is pastel leggings, which come in many different shades. If you haven’t bought a pair of patterned leggings, it’s not too late! Look online, on Pinterest, or head to one of your favorite stores online. They are bound to have some trendy galaxy leggings or leggings that look like a mermaid – have fun with this style, and head to the gym looking like you’re ready to take on the world!
Relaxing pedi and mani
Most every girl loves getting a manicure and pedicure and if you haven’t carved out time yet to head to the nail salon and pamper yourself, now is the time! Bring a girlfriend or even ask your boyfriend or husband if he’s willing to go with you. Sometimes it’s important to treat yourself right and during a crazy yet fun summer, a relaxing salon session is a perfect way to do it.
So what are you waiting for? Take out a lovely pen and write your beauty and fashion list now! This is a paid sponsor post- Praises of a Wife and Mommy may or may not support all the views in this post.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
