This is summer is very different because I am spending it with the man who is about to become husband! I can barely believe how quickly time is passing. With all of our mini DIY wedding projects and meetings the weeks pass like minutes. Continue Reading

I just want to take a moment and thank the girl who invented the crossed leg pose because it is the only thing that is helping my current #ThunderThigh status! Lol. I’ve been working out and my muscles are definitely getting bigger but I also haven’t been eating as clean as I want to so I’m basically layering fat on a growing muscle… lovely. Every brides worst nightmare. Continue Reading

Wouldn’t it be awesome to wake up to delicious iced coffee everyday and sip it on your way to work? Heck, why even go into work? You could just relax on your yacht and work on your tan.

I can make that happen. Well, at least the first part! Lol. Usually Will and I only get to enjoy iced coffee during  the weekend. Continue Reading
