Sun Burn & Sunny Skies in St. Kitts

Hey, Y’all! Today, I thought I would flashback on this Friday to our day in St. Kitts! It’s a hard choice but I think this was my favorite stop of the whole cruise. The family had a blast but I definitely paid the price of being a super pale girl on a vacation in the…

Yummy Weekend Eats

Recently I got to thinking about it and Josh & I have gotten bad about treating my visits to Virginia Beach as a vacation. Since I don’t get to see him all that often we do a whole lot of out of the house dates and that can get pricey, especially when done in a…

Wedding Series: Photographers, Photos and Paper…

Hey, Y’all! So today, I thought I would blog my second post in the Wedding Series. If you have not read the first post, 364 Days til ‘I Do’, feel free to go check it out before or after reading this one!   This time I wanted to touch on photographers, engagement photos and save…

Sunny (and Sweaty) San Juan

Hey, Y’all! While on the wonderful cruise we took in May we made a stop in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Now, this is not a beach destination unless you’re going to take an excursion a distance from the port. Most of the beaches on the island are rock and not something you would want to…

A Little Time in Little Grand Turk

Hey, Y’all! In my last blog, Cruisin’ with Carnival, I talked a bit about our cruise with Carnival on the Magic and some of the benefits to cruising. However, this post is going to be the start to talking about the lovely islands we stopped in over the course of that week! First up on…

Cruisin’ with Carnival

Hey, Y’all! So to celebrate my mom’s college graduation (May 5th) and my brother’s high school graduation (June 10) we took a family vacation this past month. We decided we loved our cruise so much in 2015 that we would do another one and check out some new places and a different ship. This time…

Teriyaki Chicken Pineapple Boats

Hey, Y’all! If you are anything like me, then you probably get suckered into watching the Tasty videos that pop up on your Facebook almost daily. It starts with one, then you click the next, and before you know it you have watched around ten or fifteen! Well, a few months back, I saw one…

364 Days til ‘I Do’

Hey, Y’all! We are officially just under a year to go until the big day, so today I’m beginning the wedding planning series here on the blog! So far we have gotten a lot accomplished, but I now see why everyone always says it is so stressful. In this post, I’ll discuss the date, venue,…

Favorite Bits of Virginia Beach…So Far!

Hey, Y’all! Now that Josh is in Virginia Beach I get to see him a couple times a month. Much better than when he was in Japan! However, this also means that I get to explore a new place! Before January, neither Josh or I had ever been to Virginia Beach, and I’ve got to…

How He Asked!

Hey, Y’all! So in January, Josh returned to the states as he was being placed in Virginia and it was amazing! Finally getting to see him after being apart for nine months was perfect. A few months before he came home he kept saying he wanted to take me away on a romantic trip so…

Uh-Oh! Eventually, I Will Get It!

So, I said that I was going to be updating more and obviously I did not follow through but the year is still just getting a start (it is only the first week of April anyways) so I’m giving it one last push! Guess what?! I already have three blog posts written and ready to…

How I Plan to Revamp My Health

In my New Year’s post earlier this week I made the statement that I would be working to make this one of my healthiest years yet. I have a history of being out of shape, getting sick easily and between May 2015 and May 2016 I was in the ER five times. That doesn’t include…
