2017: the good, the bad, the ugly

Saturday, December 30, 2017

  2017 was a year of growth for me. Serious growth. The year began in the home I am writing from now. I literally rang in 2017 in the very spot I am sitting in now. But it wasn’t my home on Jan 1, 2017. It was Chris’ house, and I was still just a visitor at the time. Fast forward a couple of months and the place that we called home was one in the same. Some of you who have been following me for a while, noticed a big change in late 2016/early 2017. I made a choice…

Home for the Holidays

Saturday, December 16, 2017

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But really… it is. The reds, the greens, the smells, the sounds! Chris is a HUGE Christmas fan. Well lucky for him, he met his match! We have had the house decorated since the beginning of November. And I’m so glad, because I feel like it goes by so fast! Chris and I have only been together about a year now, so our holidays traditions are just starting to form. So far, they consist of the same Christmas movies on repeat (I seriously mean repeat, like 6-10 times), decorating on Nov 1,…

Our Quick Getaway in Temecula; to uncork and unwind

Monday, December 11, 2017

Breathe in the relaxation. Can you feel it? I can relax at home pretty decently, BUT… sometimes being away from home helps me completely detach from all distractions. Chris and I find it easier to do “staycations” sometimes, for lack in ability to get long periods of consecutive days off. In Southern California, that still gives us a wide array of options! Chris and I were able to link up our schedules for three days straight (YAY), so we took advantage and headed out to Temecula, a small town about an hour and a half from our home. Temecula is…

Holiday travel must-haves

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

  Oh holiday travel… how I love you so! It seems like the holidays were always filled with travel, for me. Since I went to undergraduate college in Arizona, it always required a flight home to Michigan for the holidays. I was a pro at checking in for Southwest flights and lining up hours before, in order to get the seat I wanted. Always donned in a Juicy Couture outfit and UGG boots (yes I lived in the desert and it was extremely hot and UGGs were not necessary), I braved the flights to and from Arizona State each year…

This Friday… is Black (cue the holiday tunes)

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

  WHO IS EXCITED???!!!!   This girl sure is! I am pretty much obsessed with shopping. I may not be a fashion blogger, but I LOVE sharing my outfits and style with you guys! When I was in school for a billion years, I wasn’t able to buy anything nice, or expensive. Only recently have I upped the ante with my shopping excursions and man it feels good!! This is the first year (legit, since before I started college), that I feel prepared and ahead of the game! Now that I am done with training, I have a little more…
