Accessorizing with Rock My Vintage!

A few months back I was contacted by a fun vintage shop based in the U.K. called Rock My Vintage. Rock My Vintage asked if I would be interested in working together with them on a blog post. I’ve been so excited to share this shop with you all because: They have really unique and fun…

Holiday Shower Baskets…Wedding Wednesday!

This was supposed to be posted last week, but I made a mistake!  So here it is today… My shower was such a fun day!! I felt so lucky to have so many people come out to celebrate our wedding.  Dan was there to eat the yummy lunch and help me unwrap all the generous…

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

One of my favorite holidays is here!  We have had our shamrock on the door since my Valentine’s Day hearts came down and today we will celebrate our Irish heritage!  My Gramma (my mom’s mother) has always made St. Patrick’s Day fun for me for as long as I remember.  I was talking to her…

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…

Weekend Recap…Christmas Style!

I decided to take a couple days off from blogging so that I could spend time with my family and so that I could prepare for hosting the holiday.  We had a great couple of days and a very successful Christmas Day. One of the details that I was excited for my family to see…

First Married Christmas!

It’s hard to believe that in a few days Dan and I will have been married for 3 months and dating for almost 5 years!  In some ways it feels like the time has flown since we met, but then when I think about all that has happened in those almost 5 years, it makes…

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…

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…

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…

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…
