I have wanted an organized space to blog & pay bills/budget for a while, and now I am finally going to start putting an office together! Once I find a desk, the days of blogging on my couch with my dog heavy breathing in my face will be over. Finally. I’ve been going back and forth between this desk & this one….Which is your favorite? They are totally different and I can’t decide which one I like more! HELP ME CHOOSE. I’ve already started crafting for my gallery wall! Yes, another gallery wall….I am a gallery wall whore. One (or 3) for every room, please. If you are new to gallery walls (welcome…you’ll never stop), I have found most of my favorite picture frames at Goodwill. If you’re looking to decorate on a budget, I HIGHLY recommend looking there first.READ MORE »

8 hours, 5 pit stops, and 3 bags of gummy bears later…We are home from our weekend in Kentucky! It was a short and sweet trip to watch one of Shane’s friends from high school marry his beautiful new wife! Every time I go to a wedding I just wish I could throw my dress on and do it all over again:) It all goes by so fast, we have already been married for almost 5 months! Holy. Crap. Time is crazy.READ MORE »

I’ve never been a white jeans kind of person. I never even used to wear white. I am a FREAK about stains, but I was always so jealous of how cute girls would look in their white jeans. I had white jean envy. A few months ago, I decided to take the plunge and buy my first pair of white jeggings and my life has been changed ever since. I have THESE from American Eagle and they are the best. So, SO comfortable & they wash amazing! READ MORE »
Happy Tuesday, friends! Do you ever have those days when you can not for the life of you remember what day of the week it is? That’s me basically every single day this week. Between work & coaching volleyball, life is buuuusssaaaay right now, so I am working on how to balance everything that needs done. I haven’t gotten groceries in 3 weeks, but hey at least my blog is updated right? Yeah, still working on that “balance”. Even though my schedule is packed, you best believe I still make time for decorating. I am constantly checking out Etsy for new and quirky prints like this one from YAY Prints. It’s perfect in my teeny tiny bathroom. Slap that baby in a 3 dollar Ikea frame and you’re good to go.READ MORE »
In case you didn’t know, I started my first blog last year as a way to document my life leading up to becoming a wife. I didn’t really think the name through though, which is why I made this new blog after Shane and I got married. Long story short- I decided not to transfer any of my posts over and just start fresh. However, I found this post this morning and I just felt like it needed to be shared ooooone more time. This is one of my most favorite posts I have ever written, from when Shane and I moved last year. Enjoy.As I was laying on the floor of my living room (because our couch STILL isn’t in….rage) I was staring at this wall…This accent wall that I royally F’d up…….And I couldn’t NOT blog about it. We painted our living room a light gray (grey? WHICH ONE IS IT?) and I decided I wanted an accent wall. Shane is an angel and could basically care less what I painted our walls, but his exact words: “Anything but pink” I laughed in his face. Laughed. When would I ever paint our living room pink? Get real Shane…..Yeah.READ MORE »
I am addicted to Fall. Everything about it is just perfect. I wait around all year for Fall fashion, is that sad or inspiring? Inspiring, right. I told myself I will not by anything Fall related until I completely purge my closet (which may take me into next Spring), so I’ve just been enjoying my favorite pass time: Online shopping for hours and putting things in my cart & never actually buying. SO FUN. Kind of sarcasm, kind of serious. What is your favorite Fall trend? To me, there is nothing better than a fresh pair of booties & the perfect flannel. Oh, and new leggings. Which, while I’m on the topic…..
You may notice that there are only one pair of jeans on here….& that’s because well, jeans suck. Every single time I wear them, I can guarantee you that I am unbuttoning those bad boys as soon as I sit down. Not worth it. To all those people that say, “leggings aren’t pants” Okay, that’s great. You enjoy being miserable in your tight pants, I’ll be walking around in my not pants with my elastic waist band happy as can be. #supporttheleggings. Even though wearing leggings every day would be a dream come true, sometimes when I want to be a real adult, I settle for jeggings. These from Asos, look super cute and comfy, & on SALE. Hell yeah. Whoever came up with jean leggings need a serious pat on the behind. Good stuff. Now that I have successfully shown you how passionate I am about stretchy clothes, here is my fall preview!
