So last time I blogged (basically a year ago) I had just returned from a wonderful shopping experience at Flea Style Dallas and was talking about how I wanted to have a booth at their next show. Now here we are, a year later, with a Flea Style show under... Continue reading

You guys, I stinking love the Dallas Flea!!! I went last November and loved it so much, I literally counted down the days (and hours and minutes) until the next one, which just happened to be this past Saturday! I online stalked the mess out of this thing and found... Continue reading

I want to take a few minutes to talk about a beautiful love story from the movie Notting Hill. Not the one between Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, but between Max and Bella, characters played by Tim McInnerny and Gina McKee. If you haven't seen this movie, or haven't seen... Continue reading

This past weekend was so good! We knew we were going to have a really full Sunday, so we decided to hit the town for a date night on Friday night and then take it easy on Saturday. We headed to downtown Fort Worth to one of our favorite restaurants... Continue reading

A couple of months ago, I saw on facebook that a beachbody coach friend of mine was doing something called the Three Day Refresh. This sounded really interesting to me. I thought, Oh cool it's a three day challenge to give yourself a boost to get ready for a workout... Continue reading

The Nightingale. Where do I even begin with this review? To put it simply, I fell deeply in love with this book. Hard. The kind of love that only happens every so often in the book world. First I'd like to say, that I read a couple of poor reviews... Continue reading

In fact it's not any where near the point. It's like, I post selfies every now and then, and they usually either have my man or my dog with them too. And when I post them, I'm constantly second guessing my selfie posting decision. I've tried being that person that's... Continue reading

Earlier this week, my family and I traveled to New Holland, PA in order to attend the funeral of my grandma. Jason had never been to PA before, and so it was such a special time to get to go and show him my grandparent's old house where my mom... Continue reading

I did it! And by "it," I mean my dinner party :) It was such a success and so much fun to hang out with friends. First of all, can I just say that I have the most supportive husband in the world?! We were sitting with our friends on... Continue reading

About twice a month, I spend either Friday or Saturday night on my own, while my husband goes and hangs out with buddies. I love these nights. My first reaction is to be bummed that I won't be spending the evening with that other half of mine. But give me... Continue reading

Food is one of my love languages. I know it’s not one of the traditional ones (ie affirmation, acts of service, etc), but oh man does my heart warm up when I’m loved through food. Example: When someone brings me home their leftovers after going out to dinner, I feel... Continue reading

My husband just put his two weeks notice into his job in order to pursue real estate full-time. Our real-estate avenues are many, and he's so passionate about it, that he's created a way to pursue his passion full-time. I am so happy for him! And at the same time... Continue reading

I think it's ridiculously important to every so often do a random dumping of my photos from my iPhone on the internet. Why? Because I take all these pictures and then what do I do with them? Nothing. But I want to share them more. And so once again, I... Continue reading

Ok firstly, can I just say that I hate the name for this book? It makes perfect sense for the book, and I LOVED this book. But when I'm sharing with someone about this wonderful book I just read, and they ask me what it's called, I cringe a little... Continue reading

Last night we decided to have a date night. Although Jason and I both work from home and get to see each other more often than most couples, date nights are still very important to me. They are a no cell phone zone and deep conversation is required. We haven't... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, Jason and I decided we needed to take control of our finances. We decided to be very intentional about what we spend, when and where we spend it, and how much we put towards savings and school loans. We pulled a Dave Ramsey and created a... Continue reading

I have always greatly enjoyed doing crafts. I love being able to look at the walls in our home and see many of my own creations. Since opening my Etsy shop last week, I have been crafting up a storm in order to stock that baby up! And I have... Continue reading

I started an etsy shop yesterday! And whoa was it a nerve-wracking thing to do! I am really excited to have some items up (just a few at this point, but there will be more soon!), but it took a lot more courage than I thought it would. Shoutout to... Continue reading

I love pho! I do! It has been one of my favorite meals to go out for since I discovered it when I was 15. Recently, I decided that it just didn't make sense for me to not have a recipe for this of my own, so I whipped up... Continue reading

So if you know anything about me, you probably know that I truly enjoy time spent in the kitchen. I LOVE to cook. Baking, I could pass on any day (except for in the Fall because Hello, pumpkin EVERYTHING), but I try to cook something wonderful up every day! I... Continue reading

I am literally drinking one of these right now and it is sooooo good! This would also be a fun one to do as a mocktail. But I'm loving the St Germain!

These two long-awaited books came in the mail a couple weeks ago and I have been absolutely loving them lately! They entered my life via the USPS right at the end of what can only be described as monsoon season here in Texas, and I have spent many an hour... Continue reading

For Jason's birthday, which isn't for another couple weeks, we decided to get kayaks! We absolutely love kayaking, and unbeknownst to me, we have a lake about 4 minutes from our home. Yahtzee! Our version of kayaking is as follows: Kayak up current for about 20 minutes, then float back... Continue reading

I decided on a whim this morning to begin a juice fast. I had juice for dinner last night, then for breakfast, and so I thought, Hey, why not just keep doing this for a few days? My juice fast began the way that I am sure so many do:... Continue reading
