Friends Are the Family You Choose

Hi Lovely!

Today I’m resting after a crazy Saturday. Fletch and I hosted a house warming party at our new house and had about 20 people over. I haven’t hosted a party for more than 5 people since high school so I had a hard time figuring out how much food and drink to have. Yes, I bought too much. Anywho, I had an amazing time. We got to catch up with friends we haven’t seen in a while and have different friend groups meet for the first time.

Having so many wonderful people over truly filled my heart with joy. I felt so loved. So many people came out to celebrate this big life moment with us. It’s times like these that I feel lucky and thankful to have so many incredible people in my life. I’m a fortunate lady.

The next time I need a pick-me-up I will think back to this night. I will think about the people who love me and helped celebrate buying a house.

Now I’m off to hang out with Lily and Fletch before grabbing dinner with my brother and Dad (who happens to be in town for work).

What are you up to?

Feeling Sweet in My Sprinkles Dress!

Hi Lovely!

I am so excited to share my adorable new dress from Chrissa Sparkles with you!! I recently spent some quality time with my friends Jenn and Angie and decided to rock this dress for the occasion. I hadn’t worn it yet, even though I got it for my birthday in February, and wanted to show it off. I adore the colors, the amazing collar, and the fun sleeves.i want to try wearing some colorful tights with it next.

Make the Most of the Time We’re Given

Hi Lovely!

I hope you’re having an amazing day!! Fletch and I have been spending a ton of time getting comfy in our new house. We’re hosting a house warming party next weekend so we’ve been trying to make sure everything looks nice for our guests. It’s pretty crazy to think that we own this house. It still doesn’t feel real.

Anywho, spending time on the house has me reflecting on life (as I do frequently). What are my priorities? How do I want to focus my time and energy? The house has made me have to cut back on spending so finding new ways to spend my time has been a little challenging. I mean, I love shopping. I get it from my Mom and, if I’m honest, when I shop I somehow feel closer to her (we loved shopping together). So yeah, now I’m trying to find other ways to spend my time. Truthfully, I don’t need more stuff. If you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen my office. If you have then you know. So how do I make sure I’m making the most of my time now that I’ve kind of entered a new phase of my life?

A Perfect Pastel Dress

Hi Lovely!

As you know I’m getting back into the routine of blogging. Once you break a habit it’s really hard to start back up again! I won’t lie, I’ve enjoyed spending my evenings watching Netflix and falling asleep. But, I love blogging so I’m ready to get back to it! I took these outfit photos right before we moved and haven’t had a chance to share! I think I’ve only worn this dress three times and when I realized that I knew I needed to bring it out into the world. I love the color and the adorable tiny hearts all over it. I decided to pair it with a purple sweater and a purple bow.
