Six Months of Absolute Bliss

Hey:)
I've been married to my best friend for SIX MONTHS now!!:)
Ladies and Gents,
That's half a year!!
I can't even believe how fast time has gone!
I sure have enjoyed every part of this adventure with my Sam:)

Ok,
I'm not going to lie,
I look at our wedding pictures EVERY DAY!!
I'll be sitting on the couch,
Look over at Sam and say,
"Look at this picture, I love it!:)"
Sam is also so kind to reply,
"I love that picture too!!"
With much enthusiasm like he hasn't seen the picture everyday for the past six months!!
Haha:D

I'm still in shock that I am married to my best friend,
That I'm a Cannon,
And that everyday I get to wake up next to Sam:)
I am blessed.

I just wanted to share some pics that I've been starring at more than usual lately,
I'm obsessed!:)
Our first few steps as Mr. and Mrs. Cannon!:)
Have you seen these before?!
Probably!!
But I love all the memories that come with them!:)

December 27th, 2013,
My most favorite day!:)

Meet Alex and Eleanor

oh heyyyyyyy!
my name is alex,
my little girl is eleanor,
and chelsie asked us to share a little somethin-somethin with you guys today for part of her fashion week!

today eleanor and i decided to share with you our outfit selections that we would wear on a date night with our main man, daddy!
woo!
something that i found out when i became a mom is that you start looking at clothing a little differently when you find yourself chasing an active little 1 year old. :)
you also have to provide comfortable, playful
(and might i add, cute!)
clothes for your little one.
so that's what we have done today!

eleanor is sporting the cutest black and white polka dot shorts
layers of ruffles on her top,
a comfy/stretchy striped blazer (gifted),
a homemade headband and her saltwater sandals.

i am wearing a top from zara
that provides enough movement and stretch that i can still function as a mother,
a necklace i got for my birthday,
stretchy skinny jeans (american eagle),
and a cute pair of heels that are not too high so i can still successfully chase my little girl when she decides to become a runaway at dinner. :)

when i go shopping,
i look for sales
(many of these items we are wearing
we got for killer prices on killer sales),
i look for comfort,
i look for a good price,
i look to make sure the item is not dry clean only,
and i look for something that still looks flattering on me.
but one of the biggest things i look for is to make sure i am purchasing a neutral
piece that can go with more than one thing.
i actually wore my top and shoes
at my sister's wedding last month,
and here i am today dressing it down with jeans!
that necklace just dressed up a t-shirt the other day,
making me feel just a little more put together.
every item i am wearing could go with numerous combinations of outfits i can think up,
which is perfect for me because when i wanna feel like i'm wearing something new,
the first thing i do is shop my closet. 

so if i could recommend one shopping tip,
it is to find versatile items of clothing that you can wear many different ways.

happy shopping ladies!

and now,
for your viewing pleasure,
some added narration from taking fashion pics with a 1 year old.
pretty fun.


there are some kill deer (birds)
that live in our front yard and ellie loves to make animal noises
(usually the monkey noise)
at them.
it's hilarious.
(she started to try to run away in this pic...)
(but like i said, i'm super fast in these shoes!)
(selfie! since it's hard to have both of us looking at the camera otherwise.)
(the timer went off so we had to run back inside and check on dinner.)
(aaaaaaaaand that's all ya get, folks! apparently this little one needed a love after the few minutes of daddy paparazzi! :)
- Alex and Eleanor

Meet Madie

Hey Everybody!
Happy Thursday!
I am super excited about today's post because, I get to be guest posing on Chelsie's blog!
YAY!!!:D

Anyways,
Today I am going to show you one of my favorite summer outfits!
Maxi dresses!!:)
I love maxi dresses because there is so much you can use them for!
For example,
You can use them from a swimming suit cover-up,
To a cute summer dress,
To even a night out on the town!:)
Maxi dresses are awesome because
there are no set rules around styling them!
Add a belt,
Wear flip flops,
Wear boots,
Wear a maxi in the winter,
Wear it in the summer!!
You make the rules!!

Maxi dresses are also nice because their easy to dress up,
Or dressing down,
The choice is yours!!!:)
Maxi dresses are a lifesaver,
Plus,
You always feel so elegant and feminine!!:)
Here is my current favorite summer maxi!:)
Maxi Dress: Rue 21
Black Shirt: DownEast
Sandals: Macy's

Happy Summer!:)
XOXO

Meet Alice

Let's face it.
Finding a swimming suit that is cute,
Modest,
And doesn't break the bank is nearly impossible. 
It is such a struggle!
For me,
They are either too low,
Too plain,
Or too expensive!
But 95% of the time, 
It is a bikini.

Anyways,
About a year ago,
I was faced with a dilemma.
I had just found out that I was moving to Aspen Grove,
And one of the requirements was that I needed a one-piece swimsuit!
Ummmm.....PROBLEM.
I only owned a two piece suit!
I  was madly searching the internet
for a one-piece swimsuit,
That had shorts instead of the normal one-piece.
I had always worn boy shorts,
So I figured it wouldn't be that hard to find a swimsuit with boy shorts, all in one!
I spent at least 5 hours
par-oozing the internet for swimsuits.
I was so frustrated that I wanted to cry.
It shouldn't be that hard to find a swimming suit!
Then,
All the searching paid off,
And I stumbled across a website that has forever changed the way I
Look at swim suit shopping!
Seriously, though.

This site had HUNDREDS of cute and unique swim suits!

AAAAAND
They were modest!
I ordered my favorite one!
It was a one piece swimsuit that had shorts and cute ruffles on it!
Everywhere that I went,
People commented on how cute it was,
And wondered where I had gotten it from! 

People.

I just wanted to live in my swimsuit.
It was so comfortable, cute, and modest!
So,
This year,
When it came time to find another swimsuit,
I wanted to find another one piece suit,
But the blue one had set a really high bar for the suit I was going to buy this year.

I ended up ordering two suit tops from

Victoria's Secret.
They were each $50,
And I figured I would take back the one that I didn't like.
They came in the mail, and I tried them on.
I HATED them!
I had ordered an XS in both of them,
And neither of them fit right.
Also, they were $50 for a plain black top.
I debated what to do,
And I ultimately decided that they
were not cute at all!
Too expensive, as well!
The swimsuits were only expensive because of the name associated with them.
Such a waste.

I immediately headed to that website I had found and went through

all of their swimsuits!
I ordered a few of them,
And a few weeks later,
They showed up at my doorstep!
I was so in love with them!
These are my two favorite from there!
This one was about $15. 
I got this one for $9!

The only downside is,

That it takes at least 3 weeks to receive the suits,
So you have to think in
advance to purchase the suits.
If you give yourself enough time,
You can even just select the 15-day shipping
{plus the 10 days of processing}
For free!
Also,
They have sales quite often,
So you just have to watch the site!

Anyways, it is called Light in the Box!

It can be found here!
They don't have just swimsuits either.
They have lots of everything!
{like wedding dresses.}
I am buying my wedding dress off of that site and then having it altered.
They are so inexpensive!

I also got this one from DownEast for about $40.

It was more than I originally wanted to spend,
But I love the ruffles on it.
{in case you couldn't tell already, I love ruffles!}
Now, for cover-ups.
I had never worn a cover-up before about a year ago when I came across this one at Dillard's.
It had sparkles,
So obviously I had to buy it!
I have it in black and Navy Blue!
So, HERE IS THE SECRET!
This is the secret to shopping in general.
Look all over the store!
In Men's,
Women's,
Kids,
Grandma's,
Grandpa's,
The DI,
Thrift Shops,
EVERYWHERE!
You will be amazed at what you can find in a store for dirt cheap,
Yet super cute.
Make it your own!

Believe it or not,

These black cover-ups were found at Dillard's in the Women's
PLUS size for $3!
You would never know that,
Except for the fact that I just told you that. 

Next,

I found this one at Icing!
Yes, Icing.
The store that has jewelry in it?
Yep.
That's icing.
It was $2!
Now,
The biggest steal of all,
These next four were purchased at Trendy Exchange here in Provo.
It is a store where people sell their clothes,
And then the store re-sells them for a discounted price! 

I found them on clearance for $1.

ONE DOLLAR. 

These two are rompers that people would wear anytime,

But I wear them for cover-ups.
So fun!
The next two are just cute summer dresses that I now wear as a cover-up.
Most people get excited over big things,
But I get overly excited when I find good deals on clothes. 

That is basically my life,

And these are my secrets!
Enjoy the summer shopping, everyone!:)
