What She Wore// Floral Top

I believe that Spring is finally here!
Today I'm sharing a very Spring-y outfit, worn by Layla.





















Cute,  Casual,  Comfy. The shirt adds color, while the boots add depth and the earrings add texture. Love it!

                                              The shirt was on sale, a kinda of surprise find...
The earrings she made herself which is always better and more personalized.
She also fixed her in a messy bun!

-What She Wore-
Shirt- Dollar General $5
Tank- Target $?
Pants- Walmart $12
Boots- Army Surplus $30
Earrings- homemade

I love the mix of color and neutral in this outfit.
What about you?
Happy Spring!
Love,
Hagen

What She Wore// Katniss Cowl

Hey there!
I hope you are having a great Sunday, I know I am! The snow has finally melted here in the Ozarks. Here is an outfit I wore a few weeks ago when there was still snow on the ground...


 I have to admit, I love this outfit! It's comfortable, cozy and a little bit edgy. You see that cowl? Mom made it for my birthday from an old sweater. She's quit the seamstress! If you're a Hunger Games fan, you'll know that it's a Katniss cowl. It's so cozy and super warm. And not to mention, the color is awesome! 

 You should see the looks I get when I wear this outfit. Some people just stare, thinking,"What in the world is that girl wearing?". Others smile and nod because they know. Although not everyone may like it, I do and that's all that counts, right?

 Looking at this picture, all I can hear is Katy Perry's "Roar". 
In case you didn't already know, I'm crazy :)

-What She Wore-
striped shirt: gift
cowl: gift
jeans: Walmart $13
combat boots: Army Navy Surplus $30


What do you think?

Do you have a favorite outfit or item that may not necessarily be "in", but you still love it?
Don't worry about what others think, because the haters will just keep on hating!
With love,
Layla

Life// A Frozen Birthday

I realized that I still hadn't put up this post. So I scrambled to get it up.
 It is a very important post, I'd say.
   Olivia turned four last month. 
                   Her most favorite movie of all time is Frozen.

So we couldn't just throw her a birthday party. It had to be a Frozen birthday party.
                 So that is what we did...

Cake is the beginning to all birthdays. Lets start with that, shall we?
                         A delicious double layered vanilla cake with pink and blue piping accents...
                                                         Aaanndd, cupcakes!
We decorated with streamers and confetti, but sadly I did rather poorly of capturing them... 
We'll leave that bit out...
What's a Frozen birthday without some Frozen garb, right? Mom made her an Anna dress and cape and decided to give it to Olivia ahead of time so she could wear it during cake and such.
                      Isn't she adorable? What's more is that it was even snowing. Perfection!
Most of her gifts had something to do with, you guessed it, Frozen.
 Anna dress, Frozen glow in the dark wand, Frozen mittens, the Frozen movie.... She was ecstatic! There were also somethings not Frozen related (to balance it out a bit...).

        To conclude the day we sat around with bellies full of cake and ice cream watching Frozen.
I do believe this party was quite a success.
Love,
Hagen

What She Wore// The Sojourner

Hey There!
We hope you enjoyed our Thrift Haul Video! Here's an outfit Hagen put together using some of her new pieces...


 She calls it 'The Sojourner'. It's a comfy, yet durable outfit. With her Vans and backpack, she's ready for an adventure! I love the denim heart knee patch. It's actually covering up a rip from when I fell while skateboarding down a hill :) I guess you have to get creative with hand-me-downs!


 You might recognize this printed headband from the video. We forgot to mention that it was $1. Not bad for a cute accessory, eh? I fixed Hagen's hair in a quick and simple boho do.

 -What She Wore-
skinny jeans- hand-me-downs
top- thrifted $3
gray tank- from a friend
Vans- Shoe Carnival $45
backpack- Walmart $18
headband- thrifted $1


I think it's a pretty stinkin' cute outfit, what about you?
Love from,
Layla

Life// Dad's Birthday

Last month, the day after Valentines Day to be exact, we had the privilege of celebrating Dad's birthday.


 Quite an assortment of gifts...

 We always have a hard time deciding what to make him for his gifts, but usually end up making food. Lots of different foods. He likes food... And this year we made him his very own cookie cake. (Piping by Layla)


Our Dad is awesome. Period. He carries the weight of everything. He juggles a full time job, full time school and full time family. And still smiles and makes us smile!
He teaches us in the way we should go daily.
                He always make up some little song for each occasion. Even when I'm just doing dishes. 
       He is quite a dork, I must say.
And I love him. I wouldn't trade him for any other dad in the world.
We LOVE you, Dad!

Sourdough Bread {no knead, one rise}

Everyone calls me the "Sourdough Lady."
They like the food I make with sourdough. Particularly bread.
So I thought I might share with you my recipe. But I also have a friend who has been waiting for it.... for a while. Sorry. 

The best thing about this bread is that you don't have to spend countless minutes kneading it and making your arms feel like jello. Nor do you have to let it rise several times. You just mix it up the night before and bake it in the morning. 
Easy Peasey.
Sourdough Bread Recipe {no knead, one rise}
Makes two loaves.

Ingredients:

2 eggs
2 c. buttermilk, milk, or whey
2 c. sourdough starter
4-5 c. wheat flour
2 tsp. salt

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add in sourdough and salt.
  2. Pour in flour, a little at time. Make sure it is thoroughly mixed in. I like to kinda, "fold" in the flour. Dough will be pretty liquid-y compared to usual bread dough consistencies.  
  3.  Transfer the dough equally to two, glass, oiled bread pans. Do not use metal! It never works, the bread just sticks to it and makes a big crumby mess.
  4.  Leave the pans in your oven over-night. I like to leave my oven light on. It gives off a little warmth, allowing the dough to rise more.
  5. In the morning, bake your bread at *350 for about 30 to 40 mins. or until brown and hollow sounding.
  6. Enjoy! with a slab of butter and a warm cup of tea or melted cheese and a tall glass of milk or... there are so many possibilities. Far too many to list. It can be used for anything, really.
           Eat fresh or store in a bread bag on the counter.
 I really just love how easy this is! And really, the possibilities are endless.
                             You could add cinnamon and raisins...
                                             Apples and nutmeg....
       You can make croutons when it gets stale....
Just play with it! Have fun!
I hope you liked this post. I'd love to hear what you've been baking!
 Now get going and make some bread!
Love,
Hagen
