New Home

I have decided to move my blog home to another place.

Check me out here.

Forgive me because I just started it and haven't had time to really get things moving.

See you soon!

The Wedding

Almost two weeks ago, I married a fantastic man. If you are friends with me on facebook, you've probably already seen these photos but I love some of them just so much.




These two pictures were from our first look. We chose to do them because I wanted a few pictures on our family farm and I wanted to take a moment to be alone with him. 


A sweet moment from the ceremony. 


The best bridal party ever!


One last after the ceremony smooch. 

Our wedding was simple compared to others' standards but we wouldn't have it any other way. Only close friends and family were present. It was small, intimate and perfect. I couldn't ask for anything more!

Thanks to Faren Kilpatrick of Fotos by Faren for the beautiful pictures.

Out with Old, In with the New

2013 has left us and a new year has commenced. I'm a little late on writing about these things but it is still January so I think I'm good.

2013 was an exciting year.

1: I got engaged.

2: I graduated undergrad.

3: My parent moved to Florida.

4: I moved to Texas.

5: I started grad school and my new career.

6: I met awesome new people.

7: My parents moved back to South Carolina.

8: I married a fantastic bearded fellow.

Whew! It has been a busy year but I look forward to what 2014 has to bring.

The Rebutal

If I read one more time what it is like being 20 something and single, I might SCREAM.

It makes me feel guilty for getting married in a few months at the age of 22.

Either I'm pissing off the people who are older than me and single or I'm getting criticized for being too young.

These articles preach living in the moment, finding the best guy for you and why you're not married at 25 or that I've given on finding anyone and that I'm trying to find myself first. GEESH.

You know what. I am confident in who I am. In this moment, I have found the most imperfect, perfect human being for me. The reason why I am getting married is not because he completes me or because I can finally start living. I am getting married because he is my best friend and I can't possibly live 18 hours away from. That life is an adventure and every single adventure I want to share with him. I am a complete person and so is he. Together we are a great team.

I have no list filled with looks, specific personalities, or expectations. I had one thing. That he and I believed the same things and valued the same things. Did I think it was going to be a rough, bearded drummer? No. But I'm glad it is.

I'm not the best person to ask for dating advice since well I've only dated one guy nor do I know the hardships of the real dating game but I do know that at this moment, I am 22 and loving the choices I have made.

A Road Trip with Dinosaurs

I am officially glad to say that I have made friends in Texas.

Today my friends and I escaped from Waco and road tripped to Glen Rose, TX which is about an hour way. Now you probably don't know anything about Glen Rose. Well ladies and gentlemen, Glen Rose is the Dinosaur capital of the world. Yes, I said Dinosaur.











While we were in Glen Rose, we browsed a few stores and I was able to pick up this new teacup.

Fall Inspiration

The signs of Fall are emerging: all things pumpkin on pinterest, football, and the sun setting ever so slightly earlier. Unfortunately, since I have moved to Texas I feel like cooler weather will never return.

In my free time away from textbooks and smelly football players, I like to window shop online. For fall I want to want to get a gingham shirt and tan, heeled boots thanks to this lovely lady and this post. (The part of me that is practical and trying to be more adult says to buy a blazer also but I don't know if I'm up for that yet.)


I also found this super simple and cute DIY over here. I think I could even afford to do this on my graduate student budget.

New Apartment

One of the funniest parts about moving is picking out a few new pieces for your new home.

Since I have moved to Waco, here are a few pieces that I have picked up at a few local spots.


Antique Anatomy Pictures


Teal Hexagon side table




A Painter's tray used as jewelry storage

The cool thing about this piece is that it has helped me rediscover older jewelry that I stopped wearing.
