Currently // April 2016

-Lauren Daigle's album, on repeat. Thank you Amazon Prime music. 

-Carrots + hummus. Every. Single. Day.
-All of the Dashing Dish recipes. I can't recommend her site & recipes enough. So many fast, delicious & healthy recipes. I am a paid member (totally worth the $7 a month) but she has a lot of free recipes too. She's such a sweet girl too, love her and all she stands for.

-Spark (any flavor) + La Croix (any flavor)
Side note- am I the only one that thinks La Croix by itself is disgusting? Not eh, but EW. 

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Baci
Nars Lipgloss in Angelika 


Quantico, Nashville and The Catch are all our favorites right now. Also loving daily Alex & Michael vlogs.

-Books / I just finished Fervent and For the Love. Currently reading Truly Fed and about to start Love Does with my bible study group. 
-Blogs / Yeah...Immaeatthat and The Real Life RD are my 2 new favorite blogs to read. Both are registered dietitians who have an awesome approach when it comes to eating. Loving them both.
-Cupcakes and Cashmere & The Everygirl, I'm late to the game...

Excited About 
-Moving! We listed our house for sale late March and plan to rent for a year or two before we purchase again. We decided to rent an apartment in the downtown Tulsa area for that duration and we're both so excited. We love Tulsa and spend a lot of time in the downtown areas, so it will be fun to really enjoy being in the heart of it all for a bit. Also, VACATION- We've rented a huge house in Rodanthe, NC with my in-laws and I couldn't be more excited about a week long beach vaca with everyone. Come on September! 

-All of our sweet nieces and nephews. Oh and PLL too :( 

-An old fashion donut, I should probably make a pit stop one morning soon... 

What are you reading or watching right now? 


  1. i love me some nashville too. although the show is getting to be a little much. i miss all the music all the time :) yay for moving! so exciting!

    xoxo cheshire kat

  2. Congratulations on the move!! That is exciting! Both of those lip glosses are pretty and those books sound very good too. I am really happy to hear that you are doing well too. I have missed reading your posts!! :-)

  3. Nooo I love la croix by itself ;) but I know a lot of other people who don't care for it either. Also, where did you get that bottle size? I've only seen it in cans. We saw the previews for The Catch when it first started and I wondered if it was any good. So excited for your move and your vacation sounds like it will be awesome.

  4. I just finished some carrots and hummus lol! I have forgotten about Quantico this season for some reason...but I need to get back to my DVR!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I'm so loving The Catch right now too.
    Love all your books you've been reading. I've been wanting to get Jen Hatmaker's book.

  6. Thanks for some new reading recs! Love that lip gloss color and I agree - it's pretty terrible to drink La Croix on its own (unless I'm dying of thirst ha). I'm guessing Rodanthe, NC is where Nicholas Sparks' book Nights in Rodanthe takes place. Didn't read it/see the movie but I bet you all will have a great trip! And living downtown again; amazing!

  7. I was really enjoying Quanitco but Chris hated all the time jumping it does so we are about 7-8 episodes behind now. I need to get caught up. I don't mind La Croix but I only like certain flavors. How exciting that you are moving downtown for awhile!!! And Rodanthe sounds totally awesome. Reminds me of one of my favorite Nicholas Sparks books!

  8. So good hearing from you friend!!! I say YES to hummus. Nom nom! I haven't finished Fervent, but really need to pick it back up!

    Glad you are staying in Tulsa :)

  9. Now I want a donut ;) So exciting about moving downtown!! That will be such a fun experience!

  10. I've really tried to like La Croix and just can't make myself enjoy it! Yay for a beach vacation and moving! Sounds like an exciting few months!

  11. I love Nashville and Quantico! I am a straight water drinker so I've never gotten in La Croix. I love that NARS color there!

  12. Carrots and hummus have been on a regular rotation in our house too! Moving is never easy but it's always worth it, can't wait to see all the adventures ahead for you! Xo, Stephanie

  13. La Croix is disgusting by itself. I def only use it as a mixer. I'll have to check out some of the book you listed! They look good!


  14. I didn't realize you were back to blogging. Yay! I have read For the Love and Loves Does. Both so great! And yes to hummus with anything!

  16. I'm reading For the Love now and Love Does is on my list!
