Winter playgrounds

So I've been thinking a lot about how I want to incorporate more of my everyday life into this blog. It used to be completely a personal lifestyle blog, turned fashion blog but I really want elements of my marriage, of Michigan, of trips we take and fun we have. I want this blog to change with me as I get older.. and I plan on keeping it for a long time! So heres to more posts of everyday life! This video is my life in a nutshell right now. This is such a typical Brett and Tieka video. I swear we're the only married twenty-somethings in our area that still play on playgrounds on a continued basis. When we first met, we felt destined to be together and even created a private xanga called "paddleboats and playgrounds" where we'd type love notes and what not to each other. The first place we lived together had a playground across the street... and now we live in an apartment with a playground across the street! It's destiny. This is such a typical February day in Michigan. Gray, cold, snowy.. so enjoy! I didn't know how to end it.. so it just kind of cuts off with Brett shaking his head at how ridiculous I am. Haha!

  4. SOOO cute!! It reminds me of that one night we were hanging out together and we went to the beach after the Rendezvous to play on the playground and the cops came because it was after 10pm! And then I used to excuse that I lost my cell phone, but I found it in the sand. hahahah

  5. Love this video. I have a playground right outside my apartment and play on it with my husband often.
    I haven't decided how much to incorporate into my blog either -- right now it's mostly just style-related, but slowly I think it's going to include more of my life in it.

  49. Eeekk! Tieka! You have to stop it with this lovey dovey stuff! You are making me way too jealous! Oh my, how I want to have a playground and boy to swing from the monkey bars with in front of my house. Instead I get some kind of junk food distribution warehouse and old dirty men gawking everytime I leave for work. NOT FAIR!!!

  67. How cute! I love how you two relieve your childhood together! Haha, you guys pushing each other & throwing ginormous snowballs.. it's true love! Pat and I were just talking yesterday about visiting a farmer's market we both went to when we were little to get homemade ice cream and fresh produce.. isn't it fun living in your hometown?! Kinda makes me a little sad I won't be here for too long.. but I'll save that news for an email between you & I!

  86. Cute ^^ I just recently started following your blog so I wasn't clear...how long have you been married?

    I've been married just under 2 years so I'd love to hear more about your personal life, maybe even see your husband in a picture...?

    Does he take all your pictures for you, btw?
