Mouth care? Is that even a thing? What's the proper term for that? Teeth care? Hmm...haven't figured that one out yet, but hey, while I go figure that out, check out my favorite natural mouth/teeth/fresh breath routine below...Read More
Spring cleaning? More like winter cleaning! This past week, we went crazy with decluttering and realized we have so many things that we don't use and are just taking up space in our home and our lives.Read More
Guys, I am in the full swing of things. The kids have been back to school for 6 weeks now, which means I've been busy planning lessons, grading papers, handling recess duty, and just being awesome at educating young minds (if I may say so myself ;)
I love teaching, but it can be exhausting, overwhelming and many days, I just don't want to do it. I drag myself through my day, complaining that I have to stay late after school or that my lesson totally bombed. I get wrapped up in the little stuff that I allow the stress to distract me from how big I'm blessed.
I don't know if I've ever expressed it here but I love the thrift store. Growing up, my parents were incredibly frugal and we lived modestly. So the thrift store was my own personal retail heaven as a kiddo. In my short 23 years, I have rarely bought new clothes out, and pretty much have gotten every piece of clothing I own from the thrift store (the big exception is long pants- I can find any that fit my long legs!)Read More
Who doesn't LOVE macaroni and cheese? As a kid, I loved having some macaroni and cheese, topped with a ton of pepper. It was such an easy meal to make, and it was quite honestly SO delicious that it seemed like a win-win. So when I wanted to start eating food that was healthier for me (plus, finding out I was lactose intolerant), I wondered if I would ever be able to enjoy this comfort food again.Read More
As most of you probably know, lately, we're trying to save money. Which means that this summer, we're opting for weekend trips instead of our normal vacation, making dinner at home instead of going out to eat, and having stay-in date nights instead of going out and spending money.Read More
On Monday, my husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary! We got married last year after 2 years of a long distance relationship. While living in different states was difficult, the one way we could always count on to bring us together-- no matter where we were-- was music.Read More
I love getting stuff done. Nothing feels better to me than checking off my to-do list and feeling productive. However, sometimes, I suffer from a lack of motivation and procrastination. So this last week, I spiced up my workspace at home! Here are some tips for brightening your workspace!Read More
Wedding season is upon us, you guys! And I, for one, am SUPER excited. I love weddings and lucky for me, we have SO much going on this wedding season.
This past weekend, we attended a wedding, and that just got me even more into the wedding spirit! In May, Brandon and I are celebrating our one year anniversary with an anniversary photoshoot, and later that month, we're attending the wedding of two very dear friends. In August, I'm a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding and I could not be MORE excited!
Asking your bridesmaids is a big deal. These are the girls that are going to stand by your side during a huge life change. So you better make a good choice! I think it's really important to take care of your girls and make sure they feel special and appreciated. What better way than making a Bridesmaid Box to ask them!Read More
When Brandon and I were dating, I made him this Adventure board for Valentine's Day. This adventure board is a board where we can document our travels together. We both did traveling before we were together, but adventuring together is so much fun, we decided to really focus on our adventures together. This board was the perfect way to do so, and he loved this board so much that it still hangs in our home now that we're married.
This would be the perfect DIY Valentine's Day gift for anyone who loves to travel! Let's get started!
Going cruelty-free is the cool thing to do so here are my favorite beauty/household related cruelty-free brands! Check out the end of the post for a giveaway for a Kate Spade pencil pouch and a Target giftcard. Target sells TONS of cruelty-free prodcuts, btw. (;Read More
