Weekend Recap

Good morning!  I can't believe the weekend has come to an end.  It always makes me sad.  

This weekend my husband and I went to the OC Fair.
We went with my friend and her sweet little boy.

We of course  grabbed a brewskie (Or 10)  
And we accidentally matched with our blue shirts.

Hubby took a photo of me pushing my friends stroller.
"They see me strollin'." 

We got a photo with the crew for #OCChickenStomp #ChickenStomp .  
They go as a group and wear overalls to the fair.  They were hilarious.

Five On Friday

Happy Friday! I am linking up with these lovely ladies to bring you Five on Friday.  Today I'll be sharing my current Friday favorites.  Mostly items that I have been obsessed with in the past month.

1. Sally Hansen Insta-dri nail polish.
Aint nobody got time to wait forever and a day for those nails to dry.  And no matter HOW LONG I freakin' wait to touch or do anything, they still manage to get a dent in them or I smudge them somehow, someway.   I believe all nail polish should be this quick drying.

2.Neutrogena Self Tanner micro-mist

If I don't have time to get my spray tan on, this is my go-to product. A quick spray here and there and within a few hours I am looking like I spent the day at the beach, minus the sunburn.. and time...

3. Lucrece Skincare products.
This isn't limited to the ones shown below. I literally am obsessed with everything I have tried.  The Vitamin C facial cleanser, the Thyme and Apricot cleanser, the pineapple scrub.  

4. Vaseline Spray-N-Go
If you're anything like me, you hate getting lotion all over your hands. This spray lotion solves all of my lotion problems! It not only feels good when you spray it over your skin, but it has a nice scent too!

5. L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara.
I have tried and failed with SO MANY mascaras! I have gone back to this one so many times.  If it's not broken, don't try to fix it, right? This one doesn't clump(Even with multiple layers), it lasts forever, and it is not crazy expensive!

One. Year. Anniversary

I still am in shock that an entire year has flown by.  On this day, last year, we said our "I Do's."  This day means so much to me and I will forever cherish it.

We have accomplished so much within the last year, with our jobs, and me starting my Etsy shop.  We have so much to look forward to in the future :)

My time with you has been the happiest and it just gets better every day. 

You can check out our (almost complete) list of wedding activities here. I still need to finish it.  It's taking me over a year!  I have slacked so much on my blog this past year, but that just means I am spending more time with loved ones then on the computer.  So, in retrospect, It's for the better. At least for now. 

So this weekend we decided to do something somewhat simple and visit one of our favorite places, Vegas.  Because we live only a three hour drive away, it was the perfect place for us to visit.  Not only that, but we spend so much time together already, so we wanted to make it a celebration, therefore we invited a bunch of friends! You can follow along via Instagram to see what we're up to!

 P.S. Don't forget to linkup with Bella and I for our weekly Weekend Recap.  I'll update my Vegas weekend soon!

Five On Friday

Holy Guacamole! It's finally Friday. I seriously think we should always get a three day weekend and have Mondays off on a regular basis. What's up with this work 5 days and only get 2 days off deal?  So NOT cool.  Anyways, it's officially Friday and I am linking up for my Five on Friday!  Can I get a Whoop-Whoop! 

We are leaving for Vegas today to celebrate our ONE YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! Can you believe it's been a year? That went by way too fast for my liking! I wish I could go back to the whole day. It was truly magical. Everything about it.

Not only are we going to Vegas this weekend but we are traveling in style.  We get to take his friends Porsche Panamera on the way! It is so fun to drive! I cannot wait!

I am still over the moon that our engagement photos have gotten over 2k repins on Pinterest!  Mini Pinterest celebrity?  Ha! Totally kidding! (In my wildest dreams!)

 Gifts.  I have been eying Tiffany sunglasses for quite some time now, and my sweet husband gifted me these beauties this week. I am excited to sport them in Vegas!

Also, I have been in dying need to work on my blog makeover/ clean up. And I am currently working on new posts! Since I have really sucked at posting on here lately.  Sorry for being a Debbie-downer! Life just happens, ya know? I promise I will get back into it, and post more wedding/life related topics! And hopefully eventually babies.. Haha we'll see.

Weekend Recap | Fourth of July

Happy Monday! It's never easy to come back to work after a 3-Day weekend, especially when it's Fourth of July weekend! I am co-hosting with Bella for our weekly Weekend Recap.

 I was able to get off a bit earlier on Thursday, so my husband and I headed up to our river house. Luckily we didn't hit too much traffic and were able to enjoy a full 3.5 days there!  My friends drove up on Friday afternoon so they were able to join in on the fun!

We went to hang at the river during the days and to a fun country bar out there at night!
