This weekend was so great, but as always, WAY too fast!  We were so excited to attend the wedding of two of our friends, Justin and Kerri!  It was so much fun!!  The wedding was at the Waterview, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas, along with Kerri and Justin’s thoughtful touches.  The bride and groom…

Always Trying New Places…

The other night I met my friend since 1st grade, Meredith, for dinner.  I always love meeting up with Meredith and catching up with her because there is something about being friends with someone for 23+ years that just lends itself to some hilarious conversations.  Meredith and I were both in Mrs. Remaly’s 1st and…

I only listen to my Mom sometimes…

Sorry Mom, the truth is out.  I only listen to you sometimes.  The one time I didn’t listen to you and I am glad I didn’t was in regards to having Thor present at our wedding. For a little background, my Mom loves Thor, but Thor is a little challenging.  He is challenging in the cutest…

A Season of Giving and Enjoying Friends that are like Family

This weekend was exhausting but wonderful.  We had so much fun at both of our volunteering activities.  The dogs were so adorable on Saturday, and so funny.  I loved holding and walking the different types of dogs and talking with some of the potential adopters, especially the super excited kiddos.  There were so many great dogs…

Feel GOOD Friday…Take Some Time to Give Some Time!

I’ve always been a fan of volunteering my time, as I am very fortunate to have a job that pays me enough to live off of, a husband who brings home the bacon, and a dog that lays on the couch while we work (we still love you THOR!).  In an effort to give back…

Please don’t ask me if I am pregnant!

So, I try to keep everything as positive on here as possible, but the weirdest thing has happened to me in the past few years–even prior to getting married.  It happens to me at work more than anything, but has definitely been on a steady increase since we got married, and I just feel like…

Our Engagement Story…from my perspective…

Recently I have heard a lot of my friends being unsure as to whether or not it was worth it get engagement pictures before their big day.  I personally was not so sure if I wanted them but our photographer highly suggested them because she said it gives her a chance to get to know…
