Saturday Mornings

It's a cloudy Saturday morning, and we are celebrating with pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes and Netflix. It's a perfect day so far. 

Summer Lovin: Peach Tasting Surprise Date

A few weeks ago, the hubs and I had another surprise summer date at my favorite local restaurant. Bistro19 is where my bridal shower was held, and where Russ and I celebrate every special occasion - each anniversary, birthday, even a good day at work because I don't believe in looking very hard for reasons to … Continue reading Summer Lovin: Peach Tasting Surprise Date


Sweet as a Peach Bridal Shower

Just a little #flashbackfriday action for you...four years ago today, my best friends hosted the most amazing bridal shower for me - southern peach themed, of course. (I admit, I have a problem).

Throwback Thursday: Senior Prom Edition

10 years ago, Rusty and I attended our senior prom, wearing THE most ridiculous, hilarious, cheesy prom outfits ever. I still remember the gasp from the audience when we walked out at the grand march, haha. Oh, to be young again. I remember the reporter for the Daily Courier telling Russ to tip his hat to … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Senior Prom Edition


Summer Vacation: Destin, Florida Getaway to the Henderson Park Inn

I don't know about y'all, but I've got the winter blues something fierce. I've been imagining warmer weather, and took a look back at our summer photos from last year, daydreaming about being back at the Henderson Park Inn in Destin, Florida.

Holiday Traditions & New Year Wishes

Welcome to 2015, everyone! We rang in the new year by watching Back to the Future, and falling asleep way before midnight like the old people that we are. 2016 may be the year we institute the 10 p.m. early celebration time. I hope that all of you had a very happy and safe holiday … Continue reading Holiday Traditions & New Year Wishes


Honeymoon in Banff

Author's Note: In honor of Canada Day, I thought I'd post about the amazing honeymoon we took in Alberta in 2012. Happy Canada Day to a beautiful country! Two things about me: I love fall, and I'm *gasp* not that much of a beach person. Two things about Russell: he also loves fall, and if … Continue reading Honeymoon in Banff
