Happy Friday!

I am on the Whole30 Reintroduction Phase and had strawberry soy yogurt and coffee with sugar and soy milk this morning. I’m bringing back the legumes today. If you haven’t been following along, the program I just completed can be explained in this book.

Anyways, tomorrow is Aptil 1st and we are getting a SNOW storm later on today into tomorrow morning. WHY!? WHERE IS SPRING? Yesterday it was 50 degrees out and we were able to snap these pics. Today, I’ll be bundled up in my winter gear!

I can’t believe this weekend is Halloween weekend already! I’m in this awkward stage where I don’t even care about going to parties – is that weird? I find myself being totally okay with carving pumpkins with my younger brother and gf on a Friday night (those 2 are just SO fun to be around!) or putting on sweats, cooking dinner and snuggling up on the couch with my pup and guy. Those are the weekends I live for. I can’t even think of the last time I wanted to get all dolled up and go out to a bar and drink. It’s so much effort! I think it’s official that I am getting older? or maybe I’m just getting boring? HA no way!

There’s a time and place for everything — I mean when my ladies are in town, I’ll get dolled up and go out with them and be a social butterfly or when the guy needs that Manhattan after a long work week, we’re hitting up the martini bar! (unless I can teach myself to make a damn good Manhattan at home!) 😉

I wear ankle booties all fall and winter — and then into the spring. They really are (more…)

Have you ever bought something that you absolutely adored even though you weren’t sure where you would wear it (a fancy ball gown or maybe crystal embellished high heels or a designer suit for the men that read my blog!) You convinced yourself that one day you’d be invited to the Grammys (or you’d make your guy take you to the opera!), just so you’d feel better about making the purchase? You know, when you want to dress up super fancy and go somewhere super fancy type of thing? 

Anyways, I used to buy clothes with the intention of wearing them to an event, but I would either forget that I had those heels sitting in the back of my closet and go out to buy new ones or I would not like the color of the dress anymore – or it didn’t fit right — the list goes on. Luckily, I’m a grown woman now that rather spend her money on dog toys and groceries. sigh.

One thing I have always done when it comes to fashion and still do is (more…)

DIY: Bridal Proposal Box

img_5812img_5756After getting engaged, I took some time to think about the important ladies in my life and how I would ask them to stand by my side and be a part of this next chapter in my life. I knew I wanted to do a little more than just ask.. I wanted to give them something that I spent time on — that I put thought and effort into.

After a lot of procrastinating (I had 10 different ideas!), I finally settled on ‘popping the question’ with “Proposal Boxes”. With my wedding being set in Europe and all of my bridal party living in the states, I decided to decorate little wooden suitcases and fill them with (more…)
