Christmas in our new house

Saturday, December 22, 2012

Well, this has been quite the year and as it comes to a close, I have a little announcement.

We bought a house. In October.

It's a little white house, just like I've always wanted. I wrote about white houses HERE, HERE, and HERE.

We've done a lot of painting and have MANY more projects ahead of us, but here's a little sneak peek at our house this Christmas. The outside is covered in snow so I probably won't get any good shots till spring.

Merry Christmas!

The Island & An Anniversary

Sunday, September 16, 2012

As the official end of summer we spent Labor Day weekend on Mackinaw Island. The whether was gorgeous and every time I'm there (it's probably been 10 years) I'm amazed at the perfect scenery. We planned to go, along with my mom and dad to attend a wedding for two of my mom's friends from Jr. High. They reunited after almost 40 years and got married in a beautiful, quaint little white church. I was honored to sing two songs during the ceremony.

And on the 5th Jake and I celebrated three years as husband and wife. Here's to 30 more!

Life Lately

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

We have had a crazy summer. The first two months were extremely rough and August started turning the corner. Jake accepted a job transfer to Petoskey and a week later we were moving in with my parents and commuting to our jobs while searching for a house to buy. That process has been quite interesting but we're nearing the end:) Here are a few photos of our summer:

Florida Vaca 2012

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

We ventured to St. Augustine, Florida a couple of weeks ago. Jake was in a friend's wedding, so we made a vacation out of it! We visited two different forts in the oldest city in the U.S., went on a Ghost and Graveyards tour with the wedding party, spent a lot of time in the sun drinking fruity drinks, attended a beautiful beach wedding, and spent our last day at Universal Studios.
We had a great time, made some friends, but I did butt heads with one of our lovely condo-mates about using MY bathroom (he was a messy male who consumed far too many cocktails on the trip). All in all it was a great trip with lots of bonding experience:)

Happy Mother's Day!

I want to say Happy Mother's Day to my mom. The best mom. She loves me like no one else, even when I'm difficult to love. Thank you, Mom, for being my biggest supporter. XOXO

Big Hair Dreams

Thursday, May 3, 2012

Ignore the cleavage and focus on that HAIR! I'm obsessed with big hair right now. I think about it, I research it, I dream about it, and now...I blog it. I have long, straight hair with absolutely NO natural body. I've tried hot rollers and the body doesn't last very long, and recently I've been using dry shampoo on my roots and that seems to help a little bit, but I need some more ideas. Does anyone have any advice to help me achieve this look???
