A Sunday Well Spent Brings a Week of Content

 Good Monday morning lovies! The Finney household is slowly recovering from the weekend birthday festivities for Taos and week long of Vacation Bible School. We had a great time with friends and family celebrating the big one. Not only is Taos such blessed little boy who is loved dearly, but we as parents are greatly blessed with a  precious healthy life from God to care for. He is a complete joy!

So I'm sure most of y'all use Sunday as a day of rest and recuperation. I wish I could say I do the same for myself, but I can't. I am a two year old Sunday school teacher every Sunday morning and while the littles nap I usually take advantage of that time to do house work. { my house is far from perfect } This week yet again is another big week here at the Switch House. Due to the crazy amount of rain we have been receiving shipping was pushed back to the end of this week. Thankfully this is only a two day gig. So this week I have a Sams trip and two days of cooking in my future.

This all being said this Sunday night I took advantage of a mere 10 minutes to prepare myself for the week. I personally only shampoo my hair once a week. So last night I used my usual Bed Head shampoo but I replaced my conditioner with Aussie 3 minute frizz free treatment. While I let my hair set I exfoliated with my new Bath and Body Works Sweet Magnolia and Clementine scrub. Their semi annual sale is going on right now and scored the scrub and body butter for $3.50 each! You can't beat that!! After rinsing off I toweled dried and applied my Jergen's Instant Sunless Tan. I have the best luck with this product. I'm a natural red head and I only burn peel and turn white. I strongly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good inexpensive sunless tanning method. I allowed my hair to air dry { due to sick baby up a lot last night } but who am I kidding? I always air dry my hair. Most days I go for the natural wave look. If I want to straighten my hair I feel a little less guilty knowing that I skipped the heat of the blow dryer.

I'm currently looking for a great weekly face mask to add to my Sunday beauty routine. Do y'all have any recommendations? What are you favorite ways to spend you Sundays? Do you have a weekly beauty routine, if so what is it?

Hope y'all have a great week! This week I'm hoping to bring y'all a few of my favorite recipes to the blog from this years shipping.

Desert Rose Maxi Skirt

Happy Monday morning everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend full of fun and relaxation. I personally was lucky enough to spend the weekend with  my sister in law and veg out on Marvel movies. Yes, I'm a nerd and I'm ok with it. We watched Guardian of the Galaxy like five times and I watched Thor for the first. I'm not going to lie to you and say giggling at Chris Pratt didn't help any at all.

This week is looking like it is going be a little busy between the last minute party details for Taos'  birthday part and a full week of Vacation Bible School. I have a room full of four year old, so if you could be praying for my patience to be still in tact by like Wednesday that would be great appreciated. wink wink I can so do this!

So a few weekends ago the Finney's attended a wedding and I wore this amazing, if I might say, For Love and Lemons Desert Rose maxi skirt. I feel like this is something I will wear for years to come. My mom has so many items in her closet that she has had for 20 plus years that are completely timeless. I really feel the cactus and cactus blossom embroidering will always be a great look in the world of western fashion. I love the sheer black tulle because you can create so many different looks with it. Here I paired it with black slip. It's a party ready look for sure. For the wedding I kept my look a little lighter by pairing it with a flowy white tank. This skirt is amazing in the sense that you can go for a innocent look or a more sultry look with darker tones.

By the way my precious husband did the photography for this amazing look. I just love that guy! xoxo
