Hey guys! I hope your week is going well! I’m so bummed I didn’t get get to post yesterday. I was so excited to talk about the Victorias Secret fashion show and share my favorite outfits and talk about body image. We’re having our winter meetings at work this week and my mind has been pretty preoccupied with that. I give a presentation in front of everyone today, please wish me luck!
This is a

Hello, hello! I hope you’re all having a great start to your day. My morning has been a little rough.
Our apartment building had a holiday party last night. There were a few apartments decorated for the holidays with food and drinks on multiple floors. It was so much fun and great to get to meet some of our neighbors. I love where we live and how nice everyone in the property is. Having so much vodka and punch on

Every weekend I plan to sit around and do nothing but watch Bravo shows in my pjs. I love the simple things in life. ;p And without fail, every weekend I find myself with a jam packed schedule. As relaxing as following along with the latest Housewife drama can be, I feel so grateful for busy weekends. Busy weekends mean fun time with friends, good food, date nights and explorations around Omaha. And that is

I love the holiday season! There’s pretty lights and decorations down the street, merriment as family and friends get together, and seriously delicious desserts that always seem to be brought out this time of year. Because I’m on a quest to make this the best Christmas ever (said with sarcasm, but not really ;p) I decided Josh and I should start doing some holiday baking. I’ve always wanted to make cookies in holiday shapes and

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is over! The holidays sure do fly. I hope your Thanksgiving was a special one.
I celebrated mine with my favorite guy and our friends Molly, Brian, and their family. Molly was so kind to invite us over to her parents house for Thanksgiving. We aren’t traveling home for the holidays this year and weren’t sure what we were going to do. Her family was so warm and welcoming. They

-and the first night of Hanukkah! Happy 8 days of lights everyone! Josh and I are breaking out the menorah tonight.
-I just got my hair done! It has been long overdue. I love how my hair feels when I leave the salon. If only it could stay like this forever.
-Have you seen this KMart commercial? I can’t stop laughing.
-I love being reminded how good it feels to move. Pilates

Growing up, my family would always get together for the holidays and celebrate with big meals. I’d drink apple cider and try and steal some pumpkin pie while getting shooed from the kitchen and told to go help set the table. I look back on all those memories fondly, even the year my dad tried to cook the turkey, but forgot to defrost it so we ended up ordering Chinese for Thanksgiving dinner. Now that

Happy Friday! I’m on my way home from Nashville now and am writing this post on my phone. Hopefully it works! This trip was such a fun one. My plane is about to board so I’ll let these pictures speak for themselves.
Question of the Day: Have you been to Nashville?

Disclosure: I am being compensated to participate in a challenge to switch out my regular sweetener to Swerve Sweetener through the Bookieboo Influencer Network, however all opinions are honest and my own.
Hello from Nashville! Today has been a whirlwind of a day and I am going to fall fast asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. Before that happens though, I want to share a recipe that was a big hit at

This past weekend Joanna and Jeff invited Josh and me to our first Friendsgiving! Being new to town, it means so much to have friends that include us in their holiday traditions. I’ve always wanted to go to a Friendsgiving, so I was really looking forward to this. It was a potluck so Josh and I brought squash casserole, creme brulee potatoes, and pumpkin chocolate chip mookies.
My pictures are random and sporadic throughout
