Don’t worry. Be happy.

My husband is about to officially begin his career as a law enforcement officer. I’m so proud of him and I’m so excited for him.  I’m not afraid to admit that I am understandably nervous about him and his new career. One of my biggest flaws is that I am a huge worrier about the things that I cannot control. I worry waayyyyy too much and often wonder how i can I get past this.

I’m going to do some things to try and stop these worried thoughts. I will call this my “worrier bucket list”.
–          Stop thinking about the “what ifs?”
–          Be positive and don’t dwell on the negative.
–          Find a hobby. Maybe I’ll learn to knit. Or at least learn something new.
–          Find a church and PRAY A LOT.
–          Read more. It will take your mind of things.
–          No emotional eating.
–          Take more gym classes. Endorphins make your happier right?
–          Make new friends and keep up with the old.
–          Work harder.
–          Be present with the people in my life when we are together. Less iphone time.
–          Remind myself that everything is temporary.
–          Listen to positive pod cast.
–          Smile more.


Happy Weekend 🙂



Apple Cinnamon Smoothie Recipe- You’ll love It!

Brian and I have become so into making smoothies lately. Ever since we invested in a decent blender, we have been on this kick. I’m loving it. I enjoy having one on my way to work every morning. Lately i’ve been craving something  with apples in it, so we just threw some different ingredients into the blender and BAM, we created the Apple Cinnamon Smoothie. 

While it may take a little bit of chopping, peeling off skin of different fruits, and measuring a few ingredients, all you really have to do is just throw it all into the blender. We have a Ninja Blender. Which, by the way, karate chops fruit up better than teenage mutant ninja turtle (corny joke, i know).



Here’s what you’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 3/4 cup Greek Yogurt ( I used 2%)
  • 2 tablespoon Almond Butter
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Apple
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 10-15 Cubes of Ice


Here’s What You’ll Do:

  • Peel apple and remove core
  • Slice banana
  • Place all items into blender and blend
  • Pour and enjoy!


This is so tasty to me and I hope you enjoy as much as I did!


Have a great week!



Where I’ve Been…

Why hello there! I’m sure you’ve been wondering where the heck has she been?!You know those types of friends where you haven’t seen them in a while but things just seem to fall right back into place when you see each other? Well think of that as me! Yes I have been gone for a little while. What can I say…Life gets so crazy!

I have so much to tell you, sooooo, this may take a few post to catch you up to speed. There have been some exciting changes in my life and I can’t wait to tell you everything!!!

Where I’ve been starts right where I left off two months ago…planning a wedding. During all this wedding planning, my fiancé, Brian (Now husband, ahhhhh) and I decided we thought it was a great idea to move to a new house.  Probably not the smartest move on our part, but we did it anyways. Next time, I will be doing one life change at a time. No regrets though. Our new house is more like a little cottage, which I love. It is certainly not perfect nor ideal for forever, but a house is just a house.  A home is what’s in it and that’s what Brian is, my home.


If you looked at our little cottage right now, I would be embarrassed. Everything is so unorganized. That’s what weekends are for, right? Wrong, at least when you are planning a wedding. We just got married last weekend and it was literally the very best day of my life. I am still on such a high from it. This past weekend was a lot of getting organized but it was great!


I hope you have a great week and had a wonderful weekend!!



Happy Love Day!

I’m about to get real cheesy on y’all but what’s a better time to get all gushy than valentines day?! I’m marrying the love of my life and best friend in less than 3 months. Here’s a little montage of our relationship:

 As you can tell:

  1.  We obviously love to sing to Luke Bryan.
  2.  We love summer and being on the water.
  3.  Brian loves his Gamecocks.
  4.  We are goofy as hell.
  5.  I love him.

 Have a happy love day tomorrow! Xoxoxo
