It’s a New Year!



I know, I know… it’s already the middle of January and New Years has come and gone… but for some reason, I feel like I need to reflect back on 2013 and give some major props to some pretty awesome moments!  First, our trip to Costa Rica- you can check it out herehere, and here. Then, our two year wedding anniversary where Husband surprised me with a weekend getaway to Naples.  During the summer, we had both bathrooms renovated- see them here and here. Can’t forget our trip to Nor Cal, which you can check out hereherehere, and here.  My best friend got married!!  (Still waiting on wedding pictures, Victoria!!)  And of course I recently turned the big 3-0  which we spent in Turks & Caicos!!  What a fantastic year!

2013, you were real good to us!  It’s hard to say farewell, but I’m excited for what 2014 has in store for us!

Happy New Year, Y’all!

a whole year?!?


So, last week I got a notification that it was my one year anniversary with WordPress (the blog site).  Really?  I have been writing non-sense for a whole year?!? And people are actually following and enjoying it?!? Crazy!  Not only does this month mark the end of my first year of blogging, this morning I received my first offer to be paid to write about a product!  I’m thinking about responding with, “are you for real?”.  I never started the blog to make money, I just wanted an easy way for me to keep our life experiences organized since I’m horrible at scrapbooking… but that’s beside the point. Seeing the possibilities of what could be, writing blurbs about cool products and stuff could be fun!  I just want to make sure I don’t change the subject matter of my blog and turn it into what I feel like every blog is: advertisement.

 This little thing (website) holds so many personal tidbits about our life, and I feel like I’m only scratching the surface.  I’m excited for what the future holds for Husband & I, and I just want to say… I’m glad you guys are along for the ride.

Thanks, followers!

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, y’all!  In case you are struggling to find your man the perfect gift, here are a few ideas ::

1. Click here to find the Trophy Husband Tee

2. All men love beer… this is obvious.  So why don’t you buy a 6 pack of his faves and decorate them with cute sayings and red & pink ribbon?

3. A fun & witty card is a must!  If you plug in “Valentine’s Day Card for Husband” on Etsy, it will bring up SO many great cards to choose from!

4. Ummm… food… ANY food… just make it in the heart shape and you are golden.

5. Click here to find the “You The Man” Mug

You’re welcome, ladies.


Husband is legitimately part of the “Gator Nation”.  He bleeds orange and blue.  He invested eight long years of his scholarly life at this establishment, and he loves Gator football.  So… I’m a Gator by marriage, but if my Pepperdine Waves EVER start a football team, I will be at EVERY game (not likely, but I’m just putting that out there). Anyway, that being said, my in-laws are huge Gator fans as well!  And since they are AMAZING, they allow Husband & I to enjoy their season tickets with them!

It was a hot one.  Sitting in the north end zone in the sunshine seats can have its disadvantages:

1. sweat

2. more sweat

3. sunburn

4. and more sweat

BUT the view of the field can’t be beat!  And as long as you are smart and stay hydrated these 12:30 games aren’t so bad… We had so much fun especially since it was a total BEAT DOWN!  Sorry Kentucky fans… oh and where else can you see quality fans like this:

Saturday = Gator Gameday
