Happy New Year, everyone! It’s amazing how with the drop of the ball you can feel like your whole slate is wiped clean! Fresh starts are a great time to reevaluate what things can be changed in your life for the positive.
I started the first day of 2017 with a quick smoothie recipe, yoga video, and some at-home-spa treatments! So refreshing!
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 grapefruit
- Handful of spinach leaves
- Dab of honey
Add your ingredients to a blender (I use my Ninja) until smooth. This smothie has a tropical taste thanks to the grapefruit. Just add a tropical umbrella and pretend you’re at the beach!
Here is the yoga video I did this morning as well:
Weight Loss Yoga for Beginners
It’s not too intense, but does give a little bit of strength exercises to make you feel great!

When planning our wedding, I always had in the back of my mind ideas for a guest book. I knew I didn’t want to be too traditional, but I also wanted something classic that could stand the test of time.
After looking through Pinterest and various weddings on the web, I came across the idea of a champagne bottle that your guests sign. This idea was so chic and classic! We ended up purchasing a bottle of Dom Pérignon circa 2006.
Guests were able to sign both the bottle and the box it came in. Now we have a beautiful display from our wedding. Plus, when our 5oth anniversary comes around we will have some delicious bubbly to toast to!

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted on here! It’s been a crazy fast two months! We got married, went on our honeymoon, moved, & started our lives as newlyweds. It’s been so wonderful!
I thought I’d share some beautiful pictures from our wedding day. I’m so happy with how they turned out!
Thanks so much to Kyle Weaver Photography!

I’m currently sitting in the airport waiting to get on a flight back home. It’s been a whirlwind week. I got married, went on our honeymoon, and survived a hurricane! Hurricane aside, we had an amazing time!
I thought I’d do a quick post on my bridal shower. It was absolutely beautiful! My family and friends went above and beyond. Enjoy the pictures!
Happy Friday, everyone!
I thought I’d do a quick post on what I wore to my bridal shower party. Even though it was still summer time when I went looking for a shower dress, it was surprisingly difficult to find a white dress. After a while I was ready to give up. And in a way, I did! I have a Lilly Pulitzer dress I bought when I went to the Target exclusive day way back when. My mom saw me in it and said, “That’s what you should wear!” It’s a white dress with the pink print, so kinda bridal. Plus, very summery since the shower was in August!

Being the big Disney fans that we are, Kyle and I are spending our honeymoon in Florida. We will spend a few days in Walt Disney World, and one of those nights will be spent enjoying Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This will be our first time attending the Halloween party, & we are so excited! Because of this, I decided to try my hand at making Minnie Mouse ears. Here is my DIY version. Enjoy!
I used my Minnie Mouse ears I bought from the parks as a template for the size of the ears. I made a circle on the foam board, then cut the circles out with a box cutter.
I then did the same thing with the fabric I chose, again using the box cutter to cut out the shapes.
Next, I used a hot glue gun to glue the fabric to the foam board. I found that just gluing the edges instead of putting glue all over the circles makes for a smoother finish.
Using my park bought ears as a guide, I placed the ears in the correct spot on the headband. Use the hot glue to secure the ears to the band (I had really thin headbands. I suggest the thicker ones if you can find them).
Add a bow or any other details you wish, & ta-da!
I think they are really adorable, & I can’t wait to wear them in the parks!
