Some clothes I wore.

I finally got sick of wearing leggings everyday (never thought I could say that) and succumbed to buying some jeans. Not just regular jeans though, stretchy pants jeans.

And it’s a good thing this shirt isn’t tucked in because these babies are major mom jeans from about mid crotch up.
But I like it, cause they are soooo comfy.

We took these photos in pretty much my parents back yard. Isn’t it gorgeous?
When I was growing up I had no idea how pretty these mountains were, it took moving away for a few years to finally notice how rare that view is.

Isn’t it weird that sometimes it’s the things right in front of our faces that we don’t see?
Once I moved back I promised myself I wouldn’t ever take take them for granted again.
So far, so good.

    You look stunning! And that is your hair with no extensions, correct? It looks great! The lip color and shirt complement each other so nicely, and I couldn’t help but laugh when I checked out the jeans..you were right about the crotch up. But hey, no one is gonna see that with an untucked shirt and it keeps everything locked and loaded in the midsection!

      Thank you so so much! Yep, just my hair in this pic! It’s mostly just a mix of twirl curls and regular waves but I did a vid on it just barely so I’ll show you the exact process:)

    My dream is to live somewhere that when every morning when I wake up and look outside the vistas that surround make me feel every inch closer to God. You are very fortunate to reside where you are. I once lived within my dream, I now have to try and find another. In the interim I do see God every morning when I look in my dog baby’s face 🙂

    You look very beautiful and happy, your post-pregnancy look has made you even more youthful. Your face looks like a picture you once posted when you were a teen, back when you first met your husband.

    I love going to Marshall or TJ MAXX for my Nordstrom jeans. I just discovered a brand called Mother. Love them. If u r short they r perfect. They stretch and so cozy, I have bought Joe’s and all of man kind from them too. Mother jeans r not mom jeans nor Jr jeans, they r perfect for every one. I like them because I have medical problems and my stomach can’t handle mom jeans nor Jr jeans. I just can’t have any pressure on my stomach

      Sounds awesome! I have Crohn’s disease and I can’t handle any pressure on my belly either. It kills me! Which is why I wear dresses most of the time. Jeans can cause my belly to swell more than it already does.

    Yeah, whoever thought to combine denim with lycra deserves a humanitarian award! How about the Congressional Medal of Honor, or the Presidential Medal of Freedom? Either seem fitting to me. 🙂

    Cara, you are such a beauty!! I love your outfit, hair, & makeup! Ok so spill it! What makeup are you wearing? Your skin is porcelain beautiful and I LOVE your hair! Great style and I love the color! I am blonde, but I am soooo tempted to go brown every time I see you. Gorgeous! You look happy, too, which ups your beauty quotient. 😉 The background is wonderful!
