Its crazy how much can change in just one year.
Fame, fortune, and nice things. Isn’t that what everyone hopes for?! 😉
Oh chill, i’m kidding! Halfway.
I like to think of myself as an entrepreneurial type of person and the man i’m going to marry is definitely that type of person. I remember the first night we met and we each talked about having our own businesses someday. We both want to be financially stable from our own money. We don’t want to work for other people. Above everything, I think we each want to set a good example for our kids on how to build things up and how to make things truly your own. I would say at least once a week M and I talk about new business ideas or new product ideas. I love that about our relationship. We feed off each other in such a unique way that I truly haven’t had in any other relationship.
Obviously in the future I want more kiddies. I grew up in a big family and I could never imagine having just one child. Baby girl is going to be SUCH an amazing big sister and I can’t wait for the day we get to tell her the news that we are having a baby!
A home is a big part of my “future”, or my right now I guess. I want a place to be OURS. I don’t care where it is, or how big it is, I just want a place we call HOME. I want a place our kids get excited to come home to. I want a place our kids make memories in. I want a place we share holidays in. THAT is what’s important to me.
I like to think my future will be fun. M and I always say to each other “THIS is our life”. Like neither of us can believe that our life is this great, or this fun, or this amazing. We love to talk about crazy and wild ideas we might do one day and I think that’s what keeps things exciting.
The future used to scare me. Not knowing what was to come. But now I am beyond excited about it. I’m excited I get to spend each passing day with my best friend. I’m excited we are making all these dreams of ours happen. I’m excited that each day I get to look at things and decide how our FUTURE will be. Truly our life is beautiful. I’m not naive to think the future might be hard, but i’m also hopeful that we are the type of people to make anything happen. We want so badly for our dreams to come true for ourselves and for our kids. That makes me happy. There is truly no greater joy than knowing I am trying my best for my family.
Do you have any plans for the future?
Long or short term goals?
I am a leo, hear me roar!
I kid, I kid.
That’s about all I know about my zodiac sign. The fact that I am a leo.
I never grew up “believing” in zodiac signs, if that’s what you want to call it. I was raised in a christian home and I remember my mom telling me horoscopes/zodiac signs were bogus. I can’t fully say if I think it “fits my personality” or not, because I simply don’t read them. I just don’t think that because you were born in a certain time of year, you are a certain type of personality. Every single person is different, no doubt about it. And on another note? Horoscopes are hilarious to me. You’re going to believe some magazine telling you what days are “best for love”, or which days you should play the lottery? Excuse me while I laugh at you. HAHAHA. Okay that was harsh. #sorrynotsorry.
Thats the gist of it, people. My take on zodiac signs!
What is your sign?
Do YOU think it fits YOUR personality?
Who doesn’t love product reviews?! If you answered “me”, you are welcome to exit now. 😉
If you have ever been searching for a hair miracle, look no further! Ladies, I’M SERIOUS! Aussie 3 Minute Miracle is the best hair product ever. And who doesn’t love that it says “MOIST” across the bottle?! (I kid, i kid)
As someone who wears their hair up 99.539% of the time due to work, I NEED this stuff. My hair ends up so ratty and straight up NASTY after a few days. This purple bottle is my holy grail of hair products. I have purchased this a few times and all but one time I was beyond impressed. The last bottle I bought smelt like a bad port-o-potty. I couldn’t even finish the bottle. It NORMALLY smells like coconut and deliciousness. Thank goodness! When using this product, I normally put it in my hair and let it do its thang while I shave my legs. The only thing I dislike about the product? There’s no cap at the bottom of the bottle. Although you have to squeeze rather hard to get the product out, I still don’t like that its just open at the end. I find that odd. Otherwise, this product is literally the best thing i’ve ever tried on my hair! If you’ve never tried this, run to your nearest store and get some!
Do you have any holy grail hair products?
Have you ever tried this before? What were your thoughts?!

The famous line I would always say to my mother when she dragged me into thrift stores….”If I see anyone here I know, I’m going to die!” Was I being a BIT of a dramatic 13 year old? Probably. But my mom would always counter my statement with “If they see you here, it’s because THEY ARE HERE TOO!” ….Touché mom, TOUCHÉ.
It’s funny looking back on times like that because I LOVE thrifting now. I literally get a rush from going to thrift stores and seeing what good deals I can find. It’s always a “win some, lose some” situation, but nonetheless it’s always fun! I’m glad that at a young age, in a world where everyone is in constant competition to look the best, I have appreciated the art of thrifting. Yes, I said ART, people! I truly believe I had one of the best hauls i’ve had this past week. Top 5 FOR SURE. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to look fabulous. I by no means have a great sense of fashion but I do like looking put together.
I found this cute swimsuit top. Although it MIGHT be a maternity top, i’m totally in love. I’ve wanted something a little more “conservative” for summer time and this was the perfect pick. It is a darker charcoal color and I figured with a bright colored bottom, this would look awesome!

I love links up and finding other bloggers I can relate to! Here are this weeks questions!
I think my favorite part about “wedding planning” was taking our ‘Save the Date’ pictures! It truly reminded me how much I just LOVE M. We can be silly, and serious, and just be….in love! I kept looking at him and saying “I have no idea what i’m doing” and we would just laugh. I love that about him. I love that I don’t have to pretend to know what i’m doing, or pretend like i’m good at things.
I was so excited to finally meet our photographer, who happens to be his cousin. Along with excited, I was a tad nervous. When he told me he “knew someone who took pictures” I was expecting someone who just owned a camera and took pictures for fun. Luckily, our photographer is AMAZING! She gave us direction and made us feel comfortable, which I loved and ultimately needed. This photo shoot reassured me that the photos of our wedding will be BEAUTIFUL!
I am so in love with these pictures!
Sometimes we’re really cute. Wouldn’t you agree?! 😉
