Why We Eloped
Carry On Essentials!
I guess I should start off by saying we didn’t really elope. The definition of eloping is “running away secretly in order to get married” and we were definitely not secretive about it. It was more a wedding that was just the two of us and no one else. I know some people are shocked […]
Organizing the Chaos
If the last five years have taught me anything, it is that I am an over packer. (And that I wait till the last minute to actually pack….stay up the majority of the night and finally finish with a good hour to sleep!) With how many flights I have been on in those years, you […]
Cheers to New Years!
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. […]
The Holiday Season Recap
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 […]
But First, Cocktails!
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. So, I am just going to cram it into one post and try not to bore the hell out of everyone! We […]
Comfy Cozy Winter Vibes
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 […]
Best Time of the Year
It is officially winter in the PNW!!! I am completely done with fall term and the temperature keeps dropping. When I am not running around Christmas shopping or attending a holiday event, the chances are very high I will be found in the most comfortable attire possible. Hibernation mode: On. I want to be in comfy […]
CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!! IT’S HERE!! I can finally listen to Christmas music without fear of retaliation from anyone around me. I understand that July is a little early to be filling the world with pure, delightful music. However, I still get slack about it right before Thanksgiving. Y’all. I can’t help it. It is the best time of […]
Christmas Gift Ideas
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones whether it was celebrated on Thursday or any day after. Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday (we all know that is reserved for Christmas) but it is definitely a close second. It is a day where it is openly accepted, even expected to shove […]
It’s that time of year again where the weather is cooling down, Christmas commercials are in full swing, school is almost out, and the list of people to get gifts for starts to grow daily. There is something so satisfying when you know exactly what someone wants or would love. It kind of makes fighting […]
