Life Update & What’s Coming! (A GIVEAWAY?!)

HOLY MOLY. Where has the time gone?!?
I feel like I say this with every blog post lately, but WOW i’ve been gone for awhile! I really really REALLY want to change that. Does anyone even miss me in bloglandia?!
Our life has taken huge turns lately and i’m still getting used to them! If you’re interested in hearing about a life update and what’s coming up in the ‘BOMBSHELL WIFE LIFE’ future, stay tuned…!

Well, baby girl started KINDERGARDEN. Excuse me, what?!?!? I seriously can NOT believe it’s already “that time”. Five years old has been a troubling age for me, too. The sass, and the attitude, and the meltdowns that come with five years old makes me want to lose my dang mind! It’s been rough and it’s been an ADJUSTMENT. Anyone else experience this?!? Also with the sass comes the most gentle and caring human being I know. I’ve said this for years about baby girl, but she truly is one of the most caring and compassionate humans I know! It melts my heart! (When i’m not wanting to rip my hair out.)

My best friend just got married and we drove over 16 hours each way for the occasion! It was so beyond amazing and couldn’t have been more perfect or beautiful! We have been friends for over 7 years and being by her side on her big day is something I wouldn’t have missed for the world! You know those super cute barn weddings you see on Pinterest and you think “wow, that is so gorgeous!”?! Yeah, her wedding was one of those! Absolutely stunning and such a fun night!

(If you follow me on instagram you’ve already seen all these big events so I apologize for a repeat)

One BIG THING coming up in my future is the Summit 2015 Conference! I haven’t talked about this yet because honestly i’ve been a little intimidated by it. This is my FIRST blogger conference I will be attending! I was so beyond excited when the people of this great organization reached out to me and asked me to attend.
It’s actually a HUGE honor and I think it’s HUGE for my blog!
It’s located in San Diego! (Oct. 23-24) Can you say VACATION?! This is open to ALL moms looking to raise happy and HEALTHY families! Some of the AWESOME sponsors of this event include Solgar, Veri, SmartFlour, and Dr. Bronners! Want to sign up? DO SO HERE and use the code WOW30 for 30% off!
Where are my Cali friends at?! (Or my Arizona friends who want to carpool?! EH?!?!?) Sound like you?!?! Im giving away a FREE ticket over on my Instagram!

M and I are also in the process of launching a new business! I am so beyond excited for this! Again, if you follow me on instgram, you’ve heard me rant about how he is such an entrepreneur. Well, he’s at it again and i’m so excited because it’s a business i’ve wanted to do for quite some time now! Want all the deets?! Stay tuned!

I’ve been thinking of setting more of a “blogging schedule” for myself. What do you guys think about that? What kind of posts do you like to read? Drop me a quick comment! I’d love to hear from you guys! I miss you all so much and I really will start blogging more! But for now, head over to my instagram and enter to win a free ticket to this awesome conference!

Don’t Be An Idiot On Instagram

Oh Instagram. One of my favorite forms of social media! Theres just something about mass amounts of filters and hashtags that really revs my engine. I know I have done a post similar to this with my Internet Pet Peeves, but I’m singling out Instagram today. 
If you don’t follow me over there yet, you clearly don’t follow very many cool people. I kid, I kid. However, I DID change my handle and you should definitely go check it out! Everything is getting in sync. *insert angels singing*


Anyway, I’m straying…back to the post. Don’t be an idiot on instagram. It’s simple, really. 
Let me break it down for you and share the things that truly annoy me 

1) #dont #you #dare #do #this

2) LET ME REPEAT BECAUSE ITS IMPORTANT:
#dont #ever #do #this #it #is #so #annoying

3) “See above ‘Internet Pet Peeves’ post”

4) The people who make a collage with 539 pictures in it. 
Excuse me but your pictures are too small and I can’t zoom and I can’t creep your pictures.

5) The underage girls who post 15 selfies in one night holding a bottle of alcohol. 
Nothing screams “IM UNDERAGE” quite like the pictures of you and alcohol. 

6) The people who pride themselves in never using a filter. 
Get over yourself. Some days are more rough than others and we need a filter every now and then.

7) The people who are super creepy on comments
This needs no explanation. We’ve all seen it.

8) Private User Accounts
Y u no let me creep?!

9) People who don’t follow me
I’m clearly awesome and you’re missing out

What are some of your biggest instagram annoyances? Leave them in the comments!

Things I’m Bad At

For your entertainment, I present to you…the things I am bad at! 

1. Meal planning. In fact, I am writing this blog post in order to avoid meal planning. Do you meal plan? I need to find a simpler way of doing this! 

2. Using metal utensils on metal pans when I shouldn’t. Sometimes I just don’t have a clean rubber spatula when I need it. Don’t judge me. 

3. Staying on Pinterest far longer than acceptable. The plus side though? My home decor boards and recipe ideas are flowin’!

4. Getting my nails re-done when it’s time. I hardly get them done in the first place, so when I do, I usually let them grow out to an unacceptable, ridiculous looking state.  

5. Drinking the right amounts of water. I just simply don’t drink that much.

6. Having cute handwriting. I missed that class somewhere in my life and my handwriting has forever suffered. 

7. Scheduling blog posts when I should. Apparently all good bloggers meticulously plan out their posts. I on the other hand write them when i’m laying on my living room floor trying to avoid the things mentioned in point numero uno. 

8. Using far too many hashtags on instagram. #sorrynotsorry 

There you have it, a few things that i’m really bad at! 
Do we share any of these qualities?! Let me know. 😉

It’s The Final Countdown!

9 days until one of the best days of my life! 
And where am I currently? 
Laying on my living room floor feeling sick as a dog. Lucky me, huh?!
Actually, I am pretty lucky because I have an amazing man here who is fetching gatorade and midol for me. Nothing screams romance like that, huh?! 

It’s officially crunch time and I have 492 things on my “To Do” list. This was not the most opportune time to feel like I got hit by a 10-ton truck. But nonetheless, trying to get ready to leave for the wedding must go on. We are headed down to the valley this weekend so we can be down there the week of the wedding to finish up last min. details and meet with the people we need to meet with for our final meetings. 

My living room currently has all of our wedding items sprawled across it. Truly, you would think I am a hoarder of some kind. I promise you, i’m not. (Although my sister would beg to differ) The next two days will consist of packing up the cars with what we need to take, packing for the honeymoon, and getting our house clean because when we get back we are having a birthday party for a special little girl!
Uhm, do I really have an (almost) FOUR year old?!?

You know when you have a million things to do and you just want to take a nap instead? That’s where i’m at with my life right now. Except I really am sick and I really feel like death, so that’s acceptable, right?! Luckily my amazing future mother in law helped me with our favors yesterday and we were able to finish those! Just a few more things I need to get in place and we are pretty much set for the big day! EEEE!!!

I figured this will probably be my last post before the wedding, but in the off chance that something super exciting and blog-worhty happens in the next fews days, i’ll be sure to fill you all in! We leave the next morning for our honeymoon (which I am BEYOND excited about), so I will be back in a couple weeks. 
If you just can’t get enough of me, which I know all of you can’t, you can follow me on instagram. That’s where I make most of my appearances. Something about filters and hashtags just really revs my engine. No but really, follow me over there and check out the shenanigans that will be taking place this next week. Family and best friends flying in, bachelorette party, and any other kind of mischief I can get myself into. You won’t want to miss the fun!    

I hope you all have a great couple of weeks! Wish me luck! 
Next time you hear from me, I will be a MRS

P.S. – How cool is it that this is my 50th post?!

HUMP DAY, DUMP DAY.

Happy Hump Day, everyone! If you live under a rock and haven’t seen this video yet, go do it now. You can thank me later. 

Okay now that we are all in a good mood because of our friend the camel, lets talk about my photo dump for the day! I figured this was a fun way for you, the amazing people who read my blog, to see the pictures i’ve taken for the week! (Plus or minus the 29582 selfies I take) 
If you want to follow along, check back every wednesday! Trust me, you’ll want to stay. 😉


1. I’ve really tried to watch what i’ve been eating lately due to the fact that I WILL NOT fit into my wedding dress if I don’t start. I don’t mean that negatively, i’m just stating facts. And lets be honest, this Lean Cuisine was DELICIOUS. I was actually surprised! 

2. You know what I love about our relationship? Knowing we are having all of our “last first times” with each other! Sunday was one of those days for us and we were REALLY excited about what we did! That exciting news will be put into another post once everything plays out. (Don’t cha want to REALLY stick around now?!)

3. The other night we sat on my back patio, grilled, and watched the storm roll in! Oh and enjoyed an adult beverage. I know you can’t tell from the picture, but the sky was beyond dark. Fun fact? Rainy, stormy, cold weather is my FAVORITE kind of weather. 

4. Sometimes at work, we get broken pie shells. #pastrychefproblems

Do you have any diet plans you stick to or “healthy” meals you like?
What is your favorite kind of weather?

I hope you liked this “dump day” and I hope you have a good HUMP DAY!
