  • Choices & Expecting Perfection

    Choices & Expecting Perfection

    I have talked about my generation before and I won’t reiterate my concerns with the ever present desire to “find oneself” and refuse to accept the position of adulthood. Instead, I want to discuss another issue that plagues not only my generation, but the entirety of western society: Choice. I recently watched a rather amazing TED […]

  • On Marrying Young.

    On Marrying Young.

    So this year is wrapping up and it’s time for the annual existential review of my life. Yet another big year for me, obviously, on account of the fact that Daniel and I got married. Young. We got married young. We are definitely not alone in this as I can’t even begin to count on both […]

  • 1 Year Update

    1 Year Update

    So here we are  exactly 1 year after purchasing my home. This entire blog is geared around transitioning this Texas girl to a new life in Oklahoma. It’s crazy to me that this epic year of life changing has come and gone, much like I had assumed it would. What a huge and amazing year it […]

  • ColoRADo.


    I know, cheesy. But it’s my blog so I don’t care. Daniel and I had an absolute BLAST in Colorado. I mean, new love for life kind of blast. Not so much a new love for western Kansas, however, which consisted of most of our 10 hour drive. We got to climb sand dunes, go […]

  • Summer Body Fitness Challenge Goals

    Summer Body Fitness Challenge Goals

    Oh, you know me. For awhile now, I’ve actually been in a pretty great place, weight-wise. It’s slowly coming off and in a way that’s kept me sane (the occasional cheat meal is a-okay!). Back in October, I reached an all-time high weight of 164 lbs. Earlier this week, I broke the 150 mark and […]

  • Yoga Studio

    Yoga Studio

    So my lovely and adorable husband has turned our garage into my own personal yoga studio. That’s right, he’s completely forfeited his ONE domain in our home (or half a domain, as we were only using half of the garage for his garage gym and half of the garage for the car) and installed rubber […]

  • Wedding and Honeymoon

    Wedding and Honeymoon

    So, so much has happened. For starters, Daniel and I got married. And I learned that all of those little details I wanted to be perfect, I never even saw (no, seriously, I’m waiting for the photographer to give us back photos so I can actually see what our wedding cake looked like. I truly have […]

  • The Good Life

    The Good Life

    Holy crap. I’m getting married this weekend. Repeatedly people have asked me if I’m “nervous” or “excited” yet. At first, these kind of bugged me because 1) for some reason I resent girly excitement over such matters and 2) I’m so ridiculously sure that this is right that I have no worries. But as we […]

  • Great Gatsby Release

    Great Gatsby Release

    I know, I do a lot of gushing about how great Daniel is, and its because he really is, but today I would like to highlight his feigned enthusiasm over the release of The Great Gatsby today. For example: Now, I need to explain that there’s a lot being said with that exclamation mark there, […]

  • Plant the Yard.

    Plant the Yard.

    We’re making some progress on the house! We planted azaleas in the front and strawberries, roses, and a crepe myrtle on the side, so we’re getting closer to our dream yard 🙂 If you’re curious, here’s what the house looked like when we bought it: And here’s what we want it to look like: And […]
