Hi friends! Long time, no see! Way unintentional blog break there, but geez, life is zooming by. Since I saw you last (here at least), we went to Ann Arbor for Memorial Day weekend, rode 20 miles around Muskegon for the annual Pub Pedal (my legs are STILL sore!), went to an outdoor Eat/Shop/Rock event where Eric's band played, and I've been kicking butt at working at a small secret project. Kudos if you caught it on my Instastories! If not, I'll be sharing more soon. We've just been very busy, and I'm trying to prioritize, but it's definitely a challenge. I have a blog post coming up on our Ann Arbor trip, and I need to get my June small goals up, and I finally filmed a little video tonight with a hair tutorial, so I just need to get that edited and ready to go! Lots to do, and summer is here, which means life gets busy in the best way!Read More
One thing I’m looking forward to this summer… wedding season! We have two upcoming weddings this summer, and I’m really looking forward to both of them. One thing that’s been on my mind though (of course) is… what to wear? We have two very different upcoming styles — a beach wedding, and a barn wedding. I knew I wanted to find something cute, casual and fun for summer that’ll fit both occasions. I’m teamed up with Zappos and Adrianna Papell to show what I’d choose to wear as a wedding guest — this adorable cold shoulder floral dress with these woven canvas mules! Luckily, plenty of adorable wedding styles are available through Zappos.com… and if you’re a Zappos Rewards member, you’re eligible for free expedited shipping and free returns too.Read More
Phew! May is one of my favorite months to blog, and I'm totally dropping the ball. It's just been a whirlwind honestly. I can't believe we're almost to the middle of the month... when it feels like it just began! Thankfully though, we took a time out, and drove to Holland to see the tulips last night. It was 70 degrees, warm, and I couldn't wait to get out of work and head to the lakeshore. We stopped to Veldheer Tulip Gardens. We sort of alternate between this place and Windmill Island every year, but this year, the timing just worked out better here! And I'm so glad we came. It was so pretty, and I absolutely LOVE the rows of colorful tulips! If you live in Michigan, and haven't been to Holland during Tulip Time yet, put it on your bucket list!

Yay to May! This is my favorite spring month, and I’m really looking forward to it. Warmer temperatures, tulip fields, upcoming shows and concerts, fun projects, a trip to Ann Arbor, and the unofficial start to summer — Memorial Day weekend! Continuing on from April, I’m trying to take my goals a little less seriously. I still have BIG goals I’m working on like saving for a house, and working on my diet and fitness goals. But I’m trying to keep those the big goals, and any other goals are just small (fun) things to accomplish or smaller goals that’ll get me closer to those big goals!Read More
Hey friends! Happy Sunday. Did you have a good weekend? We've had a pretty good one. Friday night (when we snapped these photos) we grabbed drinks at Long Road Distillers (my favorite place for cocktails) and ordered a pizza flight from The Mitten. After that, we caught a concert at Pyramid Scheme for their 6th anniversary. Saturday, we grabbed brunch at Anna's House, saw Get Out at the theater, and then Eric headed off to the Kalamazoo area to play a show. I stayed home and watched You've Got Mail and fell asleep early. Hahaha, pretty typical night alone for me. Today, I had a bridal shower for a friend, and now I'm thinking of ordering a pizza and calling it a night. It's been raining for 24 hours straight, and it's just one of those gray, stay inside days.

Phew! This week is off and rolling! It's been busy so far (it's 10pm, and all I want to do is Netflix right now) but figured I'd hop on quick and update with this casual spring outfit. I wore this out and about and to grab burgers with friends on an outdoor patio. We're pretty much obsessed with outdoor patios this week... the weather has just been perfect! We're supposed to end April with a few thunderstorms, so I'm looking forward to that. And then we're onto MAY. May is my favorite spring month. Everything is so colorful, the tulip fields are in bloom, carnivals and outdoor events start to happen, and there's just so much good happening. I'm ready! Bring it on, May.
