Bring it 2016!

Today will mark my first day back at work in the New Year!  It is crazy to me how long weekends sometimes seem shorter than a regular weekend.  All in all though, I have to say this year started off on the very best possible note. Dan and I had so much fun celebrating New…

Feel Good Friday…A New Year That is FULL of HAPPINESS!

It is so crazy to me that 2015 is a thing of the past.  It was such a great year in my life, one in which I gained a really amazing husband and became a first time auntie to two of the cutest and most lovable little nieces.  As much as I loved wedding planning…

Creating Your Ceremony…

We decided that we wanted to have a very traditional Catholic Church ceremony for our wedding.  It actually wasn’t even really a question between the two of us, we both sort of knew this was how we would get married. I love the ceremony part of weddings because not only does it make it official,…

Cutting Cost…Wedding Style

As I have expressed in other posts, planning a wedding is very expensive and at times shocking!  When we were planning our wedding, I felt like every place that I called to price out doubled in price as soon as I said the words “for my wedding.”  It was so insane, but people know that…

Mixbook Fun!

I love taking pictures.  From silly ones of Thor on my iPhone to my attempt at pretending I know what I am doing with my Cannon Rebel–I love having photo memories of even the simplest moments in life.  I can still remember the anticipation when waiting to get rolls of film developed in my younger…

Dealing with Disappointment…

My post is a little late in the day, my apologies… Unfortunately, I wasn’t feeling great this morning, and I had my boss riding along with me, so I was a little off kilter this morning.  Hope you all had a great day today… Being that today is Wedding Wednesday, I decided to write about…

Weekend Recap…Happily Ever After!

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…

Tine’s Famous & Delicious Salad

One of my favorite things to eat is salad, but I don’t like boring salads.  My friend Justine, makes this salad, which is one of my favorites…I’m always excited when she says she is bringing it!  I’ve made it myself before and it is simple and most people love it! Here is the recipe: 2…

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…

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…

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…
