YOU GUYS. I've known about Johnnyswim for a while, but back in October we saw them in concert and they have literally been my FAVORITE band to listen to since then. Their music is just so darn good, like I will listen to their songs multiple times in a row. Speaking of which, as I'm writing this the song finished and I hit repeat. Point made.
Anyways, I put it right up here at the top of the page so that you can listen to it as you scroll through the rest of the post. Or you may not even make it past the video before the song is over, because the video is so stinking cute and you'll soon realize that they just might be the cutest couple ever.
You. Are. Welcome.

Smallwood Home is a company that makes really cute signs - I have two in my house and I LOVE them. The quality is great, plus they are super light, which makes them really easy to hang. And they aren't really expensive, which is another plus.
They recently sent out an email announcing that they were now doing CUSTOM signs and I was understandably pumped. And the best part is is that the custom signs aren't even that much more expensive than their regular ones! Right now they are going for $89 dollars.
They have this really great program that they use to make the signs and you literally get to design your sign start to finish, fonts and all. It's really amazing and SUPER easy.
As of right now their website says that they are only doing custom signs until JANUARY 31, so get your orders in ASAP!!!!

Magisto is one of my favorite, favorite, favorite apps and to be honest I actually forgot about it for a little while, but I used to use it all the time because I just loved it. Anyways I've started to use it again and I really can't believe that I ever stopped . . . #why #thatwassilly
It's a super cool app that makes short videos out of the videos you take on your phone. I posted one for y'all to see just to show you how it works - go ahead and download it and just watch the magic happen. And then share your videos with me!!!

Calling all brides + bridesmaids!
I discovered Azazie when I was planning my wedding and now it is my go to recommendation to brides - it's an online store that sells bridesmaid dresses and now I even think they sell mother or the bride gowns and even a small selection of wedding gowns as well. Anyways, the prices range from about $110 to about $150, which I would say is pretty average when it comes to bridesmaid dresses.
I was a little hesitant to have all of my girls order their dresses online, but the reviews were pretty good so we decided go ahead to try it out and honestly it was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding.
The dresses are affordable in comparison to a lot of other places, they're high quality and beautiful dresses, they have A TON of different colors and all of the dresses come in each of those colors. My favorite feature is that you can have your dress CUSTOM MADE to your exact measurements for no additional charge. I'm telling you, this place is the real deal.
My sister is getting married in a couple months and we are using Azazie for our bridesmaids dresses, and I just ordered mine. YAY!
One last thing about Azazie - it is perfect if you have bridesmaids who are out of state. All of my girls lived out of state and I simply told them the color and style of dress to order and they did the rest. easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
Let all of your bride friends know!!!
Here are my pretty girls in their dresses!
The color is blush pink for those who may be curious.

Okay y'all - let me introduce you to one of my FAVORITE apps/companies, She Reads Truth. I downloaded the app maybe a year or so ago? But I love, love, LOVE it. I tried to write up a little summary about what it is, but I actually love what they say on their website so I'm just going to copy + paste it here for you to read:
She Reads Truth started as a small group of strangers on the internet who wanted to be more intentional about reading God’s Word. What began as a casual conversation is now an entire community of women all over the world in pursuit of Jesus.
God’s Word is a gift, and reading it is a privilege. She Reads Truth cheers on ministries whose mission is to reach the unreached with their very first Bibles. Our mission is to invite the already-reached to reach for their Bibles—every day.
It is our joy to open the living and active Word of God with you daily, to find the gospel of Jesus Christ on every page
Y'all, they have a ton of different plans you can follow and some of them are free and others are $1.99, super cheap! I love the app because it has daily readings, bible studies and a community to connect with other women around the world.
And then recently I just found out that they have a HE READS TRUTH and so Taylor downloaded the app and has been using it everyday - it is seriously the best.
The app is free - go download it and check it out and then let me know what you think!!!

Ohhhh you guys . . . I look forward to Wednesday every week during The Bachelor simply because of these recaps. They are HYSTERICAL - like even my husband reads them and is dying laughing. They are funny and just all together fantastic.
Sheaffer is a blogger here in Texas and her blog is called, Sheaffer Told Me To. I have been following her for a couple of years now and I LOVE everything about her blog, but I'm not kidding when I say that these recaps are probably my favorite thing she does.
Please do yourself a favor and just go read them.
OKAY! Anddddd last thing!

Oh my goodness, friends - this is my new favorite way to work out!
It is called Blogilates and it's amazing!
There is an app AND a youtube channel and both are filled with a bunch of exercises. I love her exercises, because they can be done in your home and they range from 5 minutes to an hour long so there is literally a workout for everyone on there. Plus she is super sweet and has great music in the background.
I've told my sister about it, because I love it so much and now I'm telling YOU!
Go + check it out!

And that's a wrap, friends!
