Basic Invite: Custom Invitations for Any Occasion

Basic Invite: Custom Invitations for Any Occasion

I can’t believe it’s already the end of May! As cliché as it is, where has the time gone? It feels like just yesterday that we were all celebrating the holidays. Now, all I see are graduation posts from friends and family completing high school and going off to college or graduate school, more specifically medical school. Crazy!

Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore Series + Giveaway

Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore Series + Giveaway

As you guys know, J & I don’t have kids yet, but that has never stopped me from acting like one whenever I see anything Corgi related. From pillows to socks to pajamas to coffee mugs, I fangirl hard each time I see something new. Along with Corgis, I also enjoy large glasses of wine, cooking, and especially reading. When Incorgnito Publishing Press reached out to me to help spread the word about their new “Corgi Bits” series Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore, I jumped at the opportunity.

Homemade Whole Wheat Bread

Homemade Whole Wheat Bread

A few months back I got into a baking mood and decided to start baking bread, which is odd because J and I hardly ever eat bread at home. Because of this, I go weeks without buying bread at the store, so when either of us ever do get a hankering for a sandwich, we have nothing to put it on!

Slow Cooker Burrito Bowl

Why I haven’t shared this recipe on the blog yet is beyond me. It has been one of our go-to’s whenever we are stumped with what to make for dinner. The recipe calls for basic ingredients you should always have in your pantry, that’s why it’s such a great dish to make, especially if you haven’t been to the grocery store in a while.

My Review of The Bikini Body Guide by Kayla Itsines

My Review of The Bikini Body Guide by Kayla Itsines

After 3 years of actively doing PoPPilates, my body finally hit a plateau. My body wasn’t reacting to the workouts as well as it once was, leaving me unmotivated and lazy. Of course, that’s not uncommon when you repeat the same exercises for long periods of time. Your body becomes conditioned to the exercises and it takes even more work to make a difference.

Class Axe Throwing San Antonio + Giveaway for Tickets

J’s birthday is on December 11th. It’s a hard birthday to shop for, not only because he is a hard person to shop for, but also because Christmas is two weeks after his birthday so I never know what to get him for his birthday versus Christmas. He jokes about how I always ask him, “do you want your big gift for your birthday or for Christmas?”
