Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all have the best day with family gobbling till you wobble 😀 I’m spending Thanksgiving with Jon’s family down in Atlanta this year. It’s nice to escape the cold for one last weekend, but I miss being with my family. Last Thanksgiving Jon and I flew separate ways, but…

Winter Wonderland in Michigan

I absolutely love decorating my parents’ house for Christmas! I’ve been doing it for years now and really look forward to it every year. This was my first time being away, so I flew back this past weekend to decorate and spend time with my family since I won’t see them for Thanksgiving. (You can…

Weekend in Michigan – Puppy Prank

I had the best time home with my family this past weekend. I went home mainly to put the Christmas decorations up, that’s one of my favorite traditions. Nothing makes me happier than a house decorated for Christmas! I flew home on Thursday night with no delays, and my whole family was there to pick me…

Christmas Bucket List

Now that Halloween is over, we are all things Christmas over here! The tree is up, the decorations are displayed, and the Christmas movies are ready to be watched. I’m so excited to be in NYC this year and to take full advantage of all the festivities. Last year I was only in NYC for…

Wedding Weekend in Michigan Part 1

This weekend was one of those weekends that went by waaaay too fast! On Wednesday night, Jon and I flew back to Michigan to see my friends Danielle and Nate get married.

25 Life Lessons For My 25th Birthday

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe that I’m 25! It always seemed like such an old age to me, yet here I am, ready to embrace it. Maybe now I’ll start saying you’re only as old as you feel, and age is just a number. I had such an amazing 24th year and I know my…

What’s Up: August

I feel like I was just on the plane back to Michigan writing my What’s Up: July post, where has the time gone?? I’ve been linking up with the first blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts. Each month I’m answering the following questions: What I’m eating: I’ve been eating the same old…

NYC 2 Month Update

I can’t believe I’ve already been living in NYC for two months, time flies when you’re in the city that never sleeps!! I must admit, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like city life, but I’ve adjusted quicker than I thought. However, ask me again in the winter and I might say otherwise… Fair warning: this post…
