Braids For Days

^That little circle of hair wrapped around my pony tail is supposed to cover the hair tie.... oops ha!
This is what happens when Chanse won't stop taking pictures haha.....
This last Thursday Chanse and I went on a little day date to the LDS Temple, and it was just what we needed. My sweet sister was kind enough to watch Rosalie for me, and I don't think Rose even noticed I was gone because she was having so much fun. Rosalie actually took a pretty good nap for me that day so I had some time to try a new hairstyle. I got my braid inspiration from the blogger Amber at Barefoot Blonde. You can watch her tutorial here! I changed it up a little bit and did two dutch braids instead of one dutch braid and one fishtail braid, but it is pretty similar. And because I was so proud of myself that I wore my hair like this for the next three days (yes, I showered ha, I just didn't wash my hair). 

Top- H&M
Skirt- Forever 21
Coat- old (similar)
Shoes- old (similar)
Earrings- Ross
Necklace- Ross
Top: I had to capture the fact that my braids actually looked decent, so I took a picture for IG
Bottom: Court and Brady invited us to dinner with them after we went to the temple, and we ate at Mountain West Burrito. I have really been wanting to try Waffle Love, but I was craving something salty instead that night. I will have to try the waffles next time. Have any of you Provo/Orem people tried either of these places? What did you think?

I hope you all had a great weekend!
