A Weekend Full of FUN and FAMILY

This weekend was just way too much fun.  I am a little sad that Thanksgiving is over…but I have to say, I am super excited that we are now officially into the Christmas season.  Throughout my entire life, I have been asked the same question, you must be born around Christmas with Holly as your…

Feel GOOD Friday…thankful style

I decided to save the best for last in my thankful series…I am so very thankful this year for my husband, Dan.  He is simply the best.  He puts up with anything and everything I throw his way and has always been there for me each and every step of the way in the past…

Happy Turkey Day People!

I have to start this Thanksgiving with a hilarious story because last night I got my new passport with my married name, since we will be traveling overseas in April.  I thought I would get all the paperwork done while I had time, instead of waiting till the last minute.  I was so excited to…

Thankful that this Wednesday is basically a FRIDAY!

  In sticking with my routine Wedding Wednesday posting, I’ve decided to recognize a few people that made our wedding day truly a dream come true.  Those people are our parents and grandparents.  Getting married is a lot of fun, but it is also very stressful and very costly.  Without the help of our parents…

Thankful & Hungry…

Today, I am going to take the opportunity to express how thankful I am for my friends.  I feel so lucky to have such wonderful friends in my life.  They make me laugh often and enjoy life a lot more than I would without them. My friends have helped me through some of the most…

Certainly a BLESSING…

I posted this quote the other day to Facebook that said “Everyone that comes into your life is either a blessing or a lesson.”  I liked the idea of this blessing/lesson.  I feel like I am constantly meeting new people with my job and sometimes the connections I form with certain ones make me appreciate…

Feel GOOD Friday!

As I previously shared–I went to school for teaching, but didn’t exactly love being a classroom teacher.  I still find myself fascinated with teaching and I am always reading articles and blogs about teaching.  I still get excited when I pass by a teaching store and sometimes if I have some extra time I do a…

My Top 5 Skincare Splurges (for your Face)!

Please tell me it is almost Friday!  This morning, as I got up and went about my morning routine and tried to make myself a cup of coffee in the Keurig, I made the coffee, however I seemed to have forgotten to put the cup under the Keurig.  Thankfully I realized after about half the…

Getting the best photos of your wedding day…

I was fortunate enough to have Anne Lee, as my wedding photographer.  Leading up to our wedding, Anne and I chatted back and forth, organized our engagement photo session in NYC, and discussed and planned the wedding day pretty much down to the minute.  It was so helpful that Anne had photographed many weddings prior…

Broccoli Cheese Bites…YUM!

One of my favorite courses of a meal is appetizers.  I like the idea of a bunch of different options where you can have a few tastes of each.  Last week, my friend, Jen and I went out to dinner at Barbounia (http://barbounia.com) and ordered a whole bunch of appetizers to share and it was…

Thankful for what I’ve got…

I am completely saddened by the events that took place in Paris over the weekend.  When I initially heard the reports, I didn’t realize the amount of people involved and I am still so shocked.  I couldn’t really sleep Friday night after reading all the articles and attempting to digest what occurred.  It is just…

Feel GOOD Friday!

After having a little bit of a tough week with some moderately miserable individuals, I decided Friday would be the perfect day to remind myself, and YOU that life is too short to not feel GOOD!  That being said, I wanted to take today to recognize a group of women that my sister-in-law, Laura, works…
