    Friday Finds: Favorite Pictures of 2017

    Can you believe that 2017 will be ending in just a few days?! This has been a year to remember with getting married, celebrating family, and friends, and we couldn’t have been more blessed! Here is a look back at our favorite moments of 2017! January: With a sinus infection and needing sleep, we cheered our Clemson Tigers onto a last play win in the National Championship! On New Years Day this year, we face Alabama again, so there is no telling what could happen. February: Phil and I traveled to Florida for the ASPEN conference to present research, but one of my favorite parts of the trip was showing…

    Quick Meal Ideas for the Busy Week

    Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends! Phil and I spent the time with family in Knoxville, and it could not have been more perfect. Time with family always reminds us of the reason for the season, and it was greatly cherished. Now that we are home, and with another holiday around the corner, we both were trying to determine our meals for the week. We enjoy the frozen and prepared meals from Trader Joe’s, and I thought I would share some of our favorites that get us through hectic schedules. It helps us save money by preventing us from eating Chipotle every night,…

    Friday Finds: Building the Holiday Treat Bar

    The Friday before Christmas means last minute gift shopping and wrapping, putting out the decorations, tidying up the guest rooms, and beginning the baking process. I’m adding one more thing to your to-do list for Christmas Day, a holiday treat bar! And I am going to make it very easy. Everything is available for pick up at Williams Sonoma, and you won’t have to make a thing! Yeap, a holiday treat bar that already has everything in cute tins, your guests just have to add the hot water or milk to their cup of hot cocoa! Hot Chocolate Bins: I love their hot chocolate! As Buddy says, “It’s like Christmas…

    Cleansing Balm

    Never go to sleep with your makeup on, right? We’ve been taught this ever since we were playing in our mother’s makeup bags. And it’s advice I really wish I had listened to more in my younger 20’s. However, as I started to do better, I didn’t realize that all of my makeup isn’t coming off with just my cleanser. I’ve learned that my facial cleanser alone wasn’t able to get all of it off, and would work better if it wasn’t trying to remove makeup and “cleanse”. I started using makeup wipes to take off my makeup, but then I discovered “cleansing balm” and the “two step cleansing” method.…

    The Sweater Cardi

    I hope everyone enjoyed the wedding pictures from the other day. Due to a busy weekend and getting in late last night, I decided to share a quick post on one of my favorite winter pieces. And probably one of my warmest! This has been the perfect item to help “dress up” my outfit when going out, or to add to my sweater and jean combination. MyKim is a local boutique, and I always enjoy picking out an outfit from them! They have a wide selection, and are so helpful. I can remember several summers ago, going in to find a number of bridal luncheon and rehearsal dinner dresses for my…

    Friday Finds: Wedding Photos

    This Friday Find is a little bit different this week. We got our wedding photos back, and we couldn’t be more excited about them! We wanted to share with you guys some of our favorite ones throughout such a wonderful day! We had over 600 pictures from that day, so this just a preview of what our day was like from beginning to end. Huge shoutout to Lorien Owens Photography for our beautiful pictures! This woman was a rockstar, and not only made our day so special, but she also captured these moments for us to last forever.    Getting ready was so much fun! Phil had gotten us the…
