My New Coffee Station

For months I’ve been looking for the perfect little cabinet to serve as my coffee station. After I hung up the mug rack it hit me that a coffee station underneath it would be adorable and freeing up counter space seemed like a no-brainer. I’ve been searching second hand...

Book Chats: Over the Top by Jonathan Van Ness

To answer the obvious question, no, I’ve not been living under a rock. I know the book came out and was devoured by the masses months ago. I actually finished this book a few months back and never got around to typing up my thoughts. Now that I’m in...

Book Chats: 3 Books in June!

I finished 3 books in June! 3! I know for some people that might sounds like diddly-squat, but for me that is significant work....

Vegan Travel: A Quick Trip to Nashville

In late April we needed to be in Knoxville, TN for my bestie Megan’s wedding and since we were already making the drive down south, Austin and I decided to extend our trip a few days to pitstop in Nashville before heading home. I had never been to Nashville...

Book Chats: Fearless at Work

The second book I finished this year is Fearless at Work by Molly Fletcher. Honestly, I probably wouldn’t have sought this book out on my own, but I helped put together a women’s conference at work where Molly was our speaker and this was the book we gifted to...

My 5 Sick Day Must Haves

I had a wicked cold last week that really knocked me out of commission for a few days. It came on out of nowhere and before I knew it I couldn’t go 2 minutes without my nose becoming a fancy waterworks installation in the middle of my face. Being...

Book Chats: Self-Coaching, How to Heal Anxiety and Depression

Sooo… I’m a little bit ashamed to say this is the first book I’ve finished this year. But, with that said, I’ve been on a reading kick lately so I’m hoping to blow through a few in the next couple months. We did so much TV binging over the...

My 2019 Planner

Today’s lets talk about something I used to post about non-stop: Planners! While I still love and appreciate a good paper planner, I don’t go quite as hard on the stickers anymore. Having a perfectly balanced spread became very overwhelming and didn’t feel fun anymore so I went back...

Books I Read in 2018

One of my 18 for 2018 goals is to read at least one book a month over the course of the year. I’m less strictly tied to the idea of one book finished each month, rather the focus of the goal is to get through at least 12 books....

My First Time Christmas Shopping with a Budget

Ok. So what I’m about to say might sound absolutely insane to some people, but before this year I had never made a budget for Christmas shopping. Ever. Now, having spent the past year tracking every single purchase I’ve made it even sounds a little nuts to me too....

A Look Back on My 18 for 2018

At the very beginning of the year I took the challenge from the Happier podcast to think up 18 things I wanted to accomplish in 2018. I thought it might be fun to look back on my list and see what I’ve accomplished this year and what was a...

Wedding Dress Shopping Advice

Wedding dress shopping can be an incredibly daunting task. Before I got started I actually had a feeling of dread whenever I thought about it. For some reason in my mind I kept thinking my dress shopping experience would be miserable like my house hunting experience was. The physical...
