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

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

This past weekend Josh and I attended our first Friendsgiving! Joanna and her husband invited us to celebrate the season with friends, and Josh and I knew we wanted to bring a special dish to mark the special occasion. We wanted it to be healthy, tasty, relatively simple to make, and not make too much of a mess. Josh and I

When I first told people I was moving to Omaha I got a lot of questions like, “But what will you do there?” Or, “But won’t you be so bored?” I laugh at this now because Josh and I have never been so busy, and have never had so many things on our social calendar as we have since moving to Omaha. Our first four months as Midwesterners have been filled with fun events and

Yesterday was one of those days where plans pop up out of the blue and you just have to go with it. If you had asked me yesterday morning how I’d be spending my evening I’d have said eating dinner with girlfriends after work.
Instead I spent it at the new Nebraska Crossing Outlets (Nex Outlets for short) in Gretna, NE.
Jen, Joanna, and myself were invited to the First Look Fashion Show

My Facebook has been inundated lately with posts of thanks and gratefulness. I love getting to read what everyone is grateful for, and celebrate any chance people take to count their blessings.
I firmly believe that the key to happiness is appreciating what you have. So I jumped on the FB gratefulness bandwagon and started sharing what I’m thankful for. Some of my updates looked like this:
I stopped updating

It’s a wedding recap!
Josh and I knew we wanted our wedding ceremony to be personalized and a reflection of us. We spent a lot of time writing our wedding vows and planning a unique wedding ceremony. Josh was raised Jewish and I was raised Christian so we wanted to find a way to blend the marriage traditions of both in a way that everyone could enjoy. State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham officiated and it
