The Wedding of the Century & How I Think Meghan Markle Is Doing So Far!

A few months ago, the world witnessed the royal wedding of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle. Yes, I was one of those people who got up before the crack of dawn to watch the royal wedding. I’m a sucker for romance, what can I say?

My Maw Maw & I had coffee & pastries while we watched live at 5am. It was so fun!

I did all my research before hand to find out all I could about Prince Harry & Meghan’s royal romance. All the TV documentaries were watched. Suffice to say I also watched the Lifetime movie of how they fell in love. I know, I know. That channel totally takes their own liberties to fill in the blanks for any biographical pictures. I will give them credit, though, on who played the leads. Harry looked pretty good, but the actress who played Meghan was uncanny!

Now, most of us think we know who Prince Harry is. He’s been in the media spotlight since he was born. But Meghan Markle, at least for me, was a complete mystery. Even though the show Suits had been on television for quite a while, I’d never heard of it. Meghan spent the last few years on that show, and in most recent years began dating Prince Harry. Comparisons can be made to another actress, Grace Kelly, who went from movie star to Princess overnight.

Meghan’s presence in Harry’s life feels like a breath of fresh air. She is poised, beautiful, & intelligent. She is a strong supporter of women’s rights, & expresses her views in captivating manner. She’s not afraid to break the mold by royalty standards, & I think that’s for the best. In that way, I think she reminds me of Princess Diana. Both strong, passionate women.

I admit I was a bit hesitant when they got engaged, but she is winning me over more & more every day. She handles situations so gracefully, and seems to really support Harry.

I feel he made a great choice, & I can’t wait to see how Meghan & Prince Harry take on the world together!

Be on the lookout for my future post on Meghan’s style as a royal!

New Year, New You: Smoothie Recipe & Yoga Video!

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!

Smoothie Recipe:

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 grapefruit
  • Yogurt
  • 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:

It’s not too intense, but does give a little bit of strength exercises to make you feel great!

Our Wedding Day!!!

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!

(Be on the lookout for some wedding posts in the near future!)



Engagement Pictures!

My fiancé and I had an engagement session a while back. Our photographer was awesome, & I think he captured some adorable moments! I’m so happy that we have one more thing we can check off our wedding list! You just never realize how much is involved with planning a wedding. I am going to do a whole post on the craziness of everything & where we are. For now, enjoy our pictures & comment below! ❤



Christmas Time & Where I’ve Been!

Christmas is just around the corner, & I couldn’t be more excited! We’ve been enjoying decorating our apartment. That’s right, I said “our” apartment! After a year of applying for jobs, getting no response or a straight out “no” for jobs, my boyfriend got a job! It’s what he really wanted, & even though it took a while, I’m glad he waited for the job he wanted. Our long distance relationship is finally over, & he moved over this past weekend. Crazy! 🙂 It took us a while to unpack everything, not to mention we are still straightening everything up. So my apartment tour is on the back burner until we get everything together.

We also went engagement ring shopping! Talk about diamond overload. I just didn’t realize there were so many rings with so many different designs. I thought I wanted a princess cut solitaire ring, with diamonds on the band. But after trying on that look I thought it just wasn’t sparkly enough. The fashionista in me loves sparkles! I’ve found one ring that I really love. We are going to one more jewelry store to be sure it’s what I want. I’m so excited that we are taking these steps in starting our lives! I’ve been with this man for over seven years. I love him so much, & I’m glad he loves me the same. ❤

Now, about decorating our tree. It was a trip! We got this one tree that looked nice & full on the box. Don’t be fooled by the cover! This tree was so pitiful looking! The lights in the middle didn’t even work! I called it a Charlie Brown tree.


We ended up returning the tree and buying one that was only $10 more. I think the end result was so much better!
