    Organizing the Chaos

    A quote I love says, “There are seven days in the week and someday isn’t one of them”. I have no idea who said it. Seriously, Google it… You either find no one said it or 7 different people… it is just one of those mysterious authors. Whoever said it though is a very smart human. We are all guilty at one point or another, putting something off because the timing isn’t right, or like me, you’ll get to it “eventually”. I have found that when I say I will get to it one day, that one day never rolls around. It is a proven fact that you are more apt…

    Cheers to New Years!

    Helloooooooooooooooo 2018!!!! There are few things I love more than a new year. It is so refreshing to think about putting your best foot forward and trying to better not just yourself but your life as a whole. I have a good feeling about 2018. As a general goal setter by nature and someone completely addicted to checking off my to-do list, resolutions are my jam.

Just because you tried at something and did not get…

    The Holiday Season Recap

    I hope everyone had the BEST time celebrating this holiday season! I was wholeheartedly going to post about all the Christmas festivities that Nathan and I did this year individually….but clearly that did not happen.

Zoo Lights was first up which would have been better if I learned to wear proper footwear! It was one of our coldest nights in Portland and I am walking around the Zoo in Toms….…

    But First, Cocktails!

    Wait, isn’t the quote, “but first, coffee”? *shrug* COCKTAILS ALL AROUND!!!!!! If you know me outside of this blog life, you know that I have a deep love coffee any time of day. And clearly, according to my blog name, I love a good happy hour. And happy hours that involve not just insane amounts of shopping but that have actual alcohol. Ultimately, this usually ends up with me shopping anyway. Every month or so, I am going to highlight a cocktail recipe that I enjoy! First up, I thought I would combine my love of coffee and alcohol. This is a real win for all involved…haha. Make them for…

    A Little Life Update

    Hey everyone!! This week finally brings the blog post of a life update! I know, get excited!! The real question is how am I going to update everyone on the last six months without it being a complete snooze-fest, amiright? I could do it pretty efficiently by just stating one word: school. I will go into a little more detail than that though. In the last six months, I finished a spring term of 20 hours, a summer term of 18 hours and I’m currently sooooo close to finishing my 16 hour fall term. I am exhausted just typing that all out. The most exciting news of all this is while maintaining…
