Happy Monday, lovies! I think my goal for the Spring/Summer is to not touch another pair of shorts. Lol, just kidding. But really – I think they’re one of the most uncomfortable pieces ever. Especially after the cold seasons when your legs have been in hiding for 3-6 months.  So, what’s a pasty girl to do when the weather starts to turn? MAXIS! Not to say you should feel like you need to hide, but…

HEY! Aren’t these the cutest pillow cases EVA? I bought some like this a little while ago from World Market but I ended up not being too crazy about them, so when I got connected with Susannah, I was really excited. They are from her line, Oh Susannah which is actually based right here in NC! She has tons of cute pillow cases, and then a whole category for couples. The couples ones are seriously adorable, and they’re…

Growing up in a military family has had a huge impact on my life and that of my siblings. Sure, it was cool to see different places and I think that just happened to compliment my personality, but for my sister it was different. She had a much harder time picking up and leaving. And my brother was too young to really know,  and we haven’t moved since he’s been old enough for it to…

My first thought when my neruo-ophthalmologist told me I’d need a spinal tap was, “THEY’RE GUNNA TAP ME LIKE A MAPLE TREE!”  That’s literally what it looks like. When I walked into the room, I was full of Ativan, and had my phone and headphones in hand in case of panic. LOL. I was so nervous. SO nervous. Even having taken TWO Ativan tablets, I was not any less nervous. Like, last time I took…

WOW was it an eventful Friday. And not the kind of eventful Friday you want to have. The kind of eventful Friday that wasn’t supposed to be eventful and then turned eventful in the worst way. I had an 8:30 am appointment at a neuro-ophthalmologist an hour and half from where I live. We had to leave at 6:30 am, my mom had to drive to me the night before and sleep over. A little backstory: I started seeing…

For as long as I can remember, (while there is no single cause for eating disorders) magazine covers and other forms of media were always to blame for the rise in poor self-esteem and eating disorders in teenagers and young adults. (see here) They promote unachievable standards of beauty, because, well, they were hand made. The images were literally put together, smoothed out, pulled in, up, around, and down – any which way that would…

My favorites and preferences are constantly changing, and I thought this would be a fun post to look back on later! It’s also fun to analyze what I’m currently doing in my life – today, to be specific. So, here’s me today, January 22nd, 2017. 1. Watching: BEYOND SCARED STRAIGHT. This is the best show ever and Kyle and I are obsessed with it, all of a sudden. It’s so dramatic, and we love seeing how…

I don’t know if you guys are aware, but I’m about to be an AUNTIE! I guess technically I can be considered an aunt to Kyle’s 2 nephews, (well, since we’re not married yet, I guess technically I’m not an aunt to ANYONE. But I don’t think that matters. Moving on.)  but I wasn’t in the picture when they were born, so this feels different for me. Kyle’s brother and his wife are having TWINS! TWICE…

Welcome to da future. Just kidding. Let me just start by thanking the Shark/Ninja company for sending me this system to try for myself! It’s been such a pleasant experience and I absolutely LOVE using it! As always – even though this was a gift, all opinions are, of course, all my own! So, THIS is the new Ninja Coffee Bar System. I know we’re all on the convenience the Keurig brings to our lives,…

Downtown Tampa HAPPY THANKSGIVING guys! We spent the holiday traveling – a little non-traditional for us. We usually have the whole family together and then we have friends over to share the meal with. But this time, we went to Florida! We drove south through NC, SC, GA, and FL. We stopped in St. Augustine to drop off my dad who had Thanksgiving with his brother, and then we drove west to Tampa to spend…
