Posted in Favorites, Highlights

GUYS!!!! I finally finished High School! You know everyone says your senior year is the busiest and they are NOT lying! Well, I was sure I couldn’t be thattt busy so I signed up for another 12 hours of online college classes 🙂 So needless to say my excuse is once again, I’VE BEEN BUSY!! Anyway, here are some of my favorites as of lately.


  • WALLPAPERS! Like I said in the last favorites post I love changing my wallpaper! Here are some great ones + for your phone too!
  • If you didn’t already know I LOVE the Robertson’s ( the Duck Dynasty family) and John Luke’s sweet wife Mary Kate has the sweetest blog! I seriously love reading it!
  • Mint Arrow. Not only do I love the amazing deals she finds, I LOVE this sweet lady behind this blog. She is always sharing her testimony about the gospel and it just makes me SO happy!
  • If your an online shopper like me I highly recommend downloading the Honey extension! It finds the best coupons for you to use without having to google them!
  • THIS dress from Roolee! I wore it for Baccularate and I LOVE IT!


Of course there have been many highlights over the last months but here are a few!

  • PROM! I had a super time at prom with these girls!

  • Baccalaureate (in my Roolee dress!)

  • Bye bye Oklahoma, I’m headed to BYU!

  • Your class of 2017! I’ve grown up with these people and look forward to seeing where God takes them all. But, I am sure going to miss seeing them everyday!

January Favorites + Highlights

Posted in Favorites, Highlights


  • I love changing my wallpaper on my mac and I am loving all these free ones from seriously they have some great ones!
  • WHERE ARE MY BOOK LOVERS!?! This website is my new best friend! SUPER cheap books, free shipping, have TONS of books. Like I went to my library because I seriously have the longest list of books I want to read and they didn’t have ONE. But thrift books had ALL OF THEM. I know I am super excited about this but they came in way better condition than I expected, free shipping, and came super quickly!
  • Awesome with Allison podcasts! She just barely released these and I am loving them so far! Highly recommend.
  • Coconut and Almond Kind Bars. Okay, I think I am obsessed with KIND bars. They are my favorite!



I am not going to lie this month was a super great month but it seemed like it was never going to end! The fact that Christmas was just over a month ago blows my mind. Feels like months ago… but I am so glad to be heading into February!

  • Shopping and doing homework with my sweet friend Macy! It has been a crazy month full of homework among other things. She made this month the BEST! Never take good friends for granted! 
  • Youth Conference! I (honestly) didn’t want to go but I had the time of my life! My group was amazing, the speakers, the activities, everything was just WONDERFUL!

 + This sweater ! It is SO warm and cozy. Seriously I love it! and this online store is awesome! The picture I do have of me wearing it will NOT upload…:(

September Favorites + Highlights

Posted in Favorites, Highlights

Hi! I am still here, alive and well! Hope you are all doing well and good too! I can’t believe that it is the 22nd of October and I just know getting around to post this. Remember my goal last month was to blog more… (not just MPT’s)…haha. I say this all the time but my life is SO busy right now and I am pretty sure that I could write pages of things (excuses I guess you could say) of why I haven’t blogged recently. I really miss it and maybe just maybe November will be my month! Anyways here are my September favs!

f a v o r i t e s

  • Hunter Boot Spray. Guys  if you own a pair on Hunter boots and you don’t own this stuff. Go to here and buy you some. (that as cheap as it gets) LIFE CHANGING. It really does make your boots look    b r a n d new.
  • Reece’s FastBreak. I hadn’t tired one until recently and they are my new favorite! Not that I need a new favorite candy bar….
  • Brazilian Blowout hair treatment. If you’ve been following my blog for awhile now  you know how my hair gets so frizzy and never stays in this Oklahoma humidity and I don’t honestly know why I waited so long to get one. (Besides the fact that they are slightly on the pricey side…) Guys I don’t have to do my hair anymore, it looks way healthier, and it will last about 6 months (hopefully)


(the picture on the right was right after the treatment so it has more of its curl back now)

  • Maxwell! Guys this online shop is too cute for words. I am loving all the stuff they have posted! Hurry and get your favorite thing because there not there for long.

h i g h l i g h t s

  • We took our Senior pictures at school and I am still in complete shock that I am a Senior!! It just gets more real each day though…
  • Our grandparents came to visit and man they are great! Love them lots!!
  • My mom and my sister and few friends went to Sadie Robertson’s Live Original tour in Dallas and it was great! I wish I could sit down and have lunch with all of them because they are such wise kids!
  • #ldsconf was GREAT! They always seem to know just what I need to hear and it is always such a refreshing weekend!

And that was my month! I hope you all had a great September! Be looking for my October favorites + highlights soon. 😉

July Favorites + Highlights

Posted in Favorites, Highlights


JULY!! What a good month. Thank goodness it didn’t fly by as fast as June. Seriously I start school on August 4th… so summer is about over for me but I am ready for fall so yay! (Isn’t is weird how we refer to summer as the time when we aren’t in school? or is that just me?)

  •  This video. Oh my it is so beautiful. My grandma taught it to my cousins who are 3, 4, & 5 and they can all sing it all the way through and it is the most precious thing ever. It is really good about teaching the basics of Christ’s atonement.
  • Peplums. I’ve realized that like 95% of the shirts I’ve bought in the last year are peplums. I hope they never go out of style because I love them and have way too many of them. (You can find them anywhere really.)
  • Chocolate Teddy Grams. I forgot how much I loved them. Defiantly not just a kids treat. 😉

I am wanting to capture more of my life on here so along with favorites I am going to do a monthly highlights as well. So here I my July highlights!

  • UTAH. So part of my Utah trip was in June. But my favorite things about Utah during July were…ahahaha I’ll be doing a post about this soon! 😉
  • I TURNED 17! Only one more year till I am officially an ADULT. Which is absolutely crazy to think about.
  • HAWAII. My family and I went to Hawaii and let’s just say I am in love. I will be doing a full blog post about this soon so I don’t want to spoil anything here. 🙂
  • COUSINS. My cousins came for a short visit! (Like 24hrs short)

Now, normally my highlights will be more “everyday” things but this month was FABULOUS! What were your July highlights and favorites? -halee
