Why We Eloped
Fall Down Seven, Stand up Eight
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 […]
The Groundhog Was Right
Saturday night I went to see the new Cirque Du Soleil ice show, Crystal, with my friend Christina. It’s not the first time I have seen the stunt defying group and I’m sure it won’t be the last. It was far different than any of their other performances I have seen but nonetheless inspiring. It […]
Carry On Essentials!
I very rarely believe that pesky little groundhog when he sees or does not see his shadow. Mostly because I don’t think he has the best track record of being correct. However, this year he has hit the nail on the head with six more weeks of winter. We have had unusually cold temps for […]
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 […]
Organizing the Chaos
Well, this first few weeks of school has kicked my butt! I am thanking all things holy for the weekend getaway we had to Cali before school started. Somehow, I saved one of my hardest quarters ever for my last term… and that includes the term I took 20 hours. I had no life because […]
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 […]
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 […]
