I’ve thought about this question a lot the past few days. Where do I want to be in ten years? Most people could give you a direct answer to this question. “Graduated from school, living in such and such place”, etc. The only things I know for certain about ten years from now are this:
I will have a 13 year old. Wait, WHAT?! THIRTEEN?
I will also have been married to my best friend for almost ten years.
Ten years from now? Ten years from now we hope to be financially supported by our own businesses. I like to think M and I are both entrepreneurial, but M is more so than me. We are always talking about new business ideas or how we could do things better. Also in ten years, I would like to hope baby girl would have a brother or sister, or two. 😉
I’m not one of those people who have a checklist of so many things I want to have happen over time. Do I have hopes and dreams? Absolutely. But being with M, making a family of our own, raising baby girl…right now, this is enough for me. It wouldn’t matter where we are living, or how we are living, in ten years I want our family to still be US. There will be a lot of growth and change over the next ten years and I think it is going to be such an adventure figuring out things together.
What do you imagine your life to look like in 10 years?
Do you have any major goals?
M and I have been wanting to try homemade almond milk for some time now. Its not difficult, by any means. We just never found the time to get around to it. I think our first attempt was pretty successful! This is literally the easiest recipe ever. And it is FAR cheaper than buying the stuff at the store! I became allergic to dairy after I got pregnant and it has been the most challenging thing for me to overcome. Lets be honest, I’m TERRIBLE at cutting dairy out. This almond milk was really tasty though and i’m excited to keep trying new things!
Step 1. Soak almonds overnight up to 48 hours.

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!
Paid: $3.99 Brand: Old Navy
I love links up and finding other bloggers I can relate to! Here are this weeks questions!
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. 😉
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?! 😉
