Focus


On February 23, 2008, Nate walked me to my car ...as he typically did when I left his house. We sat in the car for a little while, saying our good-byes and out of no where, Nate pulls out a ring and asks me to marry him! Yes, I totally got engaged in my little 2001 Red Ford Focus!

Two years later, we bought our first car together and decided that it's about time to get rid of the Focus. But before we do, I thought it would be fun to have Nate's brother and his wife (who are amazing photographers) do an anniversary shoot with us and the car.

Check out our shoot at Lauren Armstrong Photography.

We totally recommend them if you are looking for someone to shoot your next special occasion or even if you just want some photos for fun....I promise, they won't disappoint!

Holiday Baking - Sticky Business

This year I started all of my baking pretty early and I'm actually already done.
I feel very accomplished (pat on the back)!
This year the cookie line up is: Peanut Butter Blossoms, Peppermint Meltaways, Oreo Truffles, Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies (the best cookies in the entire world....I am sure of it), and Peppermint Marshmallows!
Yes...I said Marshmallows!!

I found a recipe for them and thought I'd give it a shot!

They weren't too difficult but it was a sticky sticky mess...

...but I think they turned out pretty good.

They will make really cute gifts + I think they will be
amazing in hot chocolate!

Try the recipe for yourself!
Be warned....it's like working with glue!

...I really need to get a (cute) apron!
