Next Time On The Real Housewives…

I tell people I’m a reality blogger because I don’t like the term “lifestyle blogger.” I don’t mean it in a “put things into the universe if you want them to come to be” type way. But lately it feels as though I’m living my own version of The Real Housewives. Not that I have drama in my life personally (thank you universe), but some of my friends are being put through the ringer. Continue reading


Flipping for Books and Booze

A little over a year ago, I shared the desk makeover I did for Fella and alluded to a matching bookcase. And then wedding planning took over my life and the shelf slowly turned into a storage area in the garage…

The weekend we returned from the honeymoon, I started and finished the bookcase makeover; that’s how determined I was to get it done. Continue reading

Laughing ’til It Hurts

As of late, my heart has been heavy, but instead of sharing a sad story, I will instead share with you a story of a typical shopping trip with me and my mom.

Every year around this time, mom and I like to go shopping together.

When I last shared, I posted a handful of pictures from our wedding. So the logical next post is honeymoon pics, no…? Continue reading

Nothing about the day was supposed to be stressful…  Continue reading

The Start of Our Happily Ever After

Do you guys have one of those friends who is constantly getting hurt? The ones who shows up to lunch or work with their arm in a sling or hobbling with a limp and when you ask them what happened, they legitimately have no excuse? I am that friend.

Just last week my eye was bothering me one night. I took my contact out and went to bed. I woke up the next morning and my eye was still hurting and had become very red. I went to the doctor and they told me I had scratched my cornea and that I had a mild infection. But I didn’t do anything to it! Continue reading
