28th Birthday Wish List

Happy Wednesday friends! The first two weeks of May have been so nice outside, although I’m pretty sure mother nature missed the memo that in between winter and summer is a season called spring. It hit 90 here yesterday and Bobby was so uncomfortable that he put the AC in our bedroom at like 11pm last night! It’s officially my birthday month too which is exciting! What better way to start celebrating this month than by sharing what I would love to get for my birthday!

Friday Favorites 4.27.18

Happy Friday. The weather in New England is amazing and its supposed to be just as nice tomorrow! We will be getting some great yard work done this weekend and finally putting our yard furniture out. YAY!

  1. I clearly can’t make list this without mentioning the Magnolia Table Cookbook. I have made our dinner list for the week and were trying the enchiladas first!
  2. One of my favorite vloggers had her baby last week and she FINALLY announced his name! If you’re into vlogs deff check out Mallory Ervin and her cute little fam!
  3. I started looking for a new protein shake to help shed a few more pounds. I have been doing great with weight watchers too so I think doing the both of them will really help me. I picked the Women’s Best Cookies and Cream flavor.

I’ll be back to the grind with my little piece of the internet next month, but until then have a great weekend!

Happy Valentines Day

I don’t know what is more fitting for a day like today other than this husband tag. I’ve seen a few other bloggers do it and since today is all about love I thought it would be a fun post for today!

What was your first impression?

Bobby: What the hell is the matter with this girl.

Rebecca: My first impression was woah this guy is really hot! Then we didn’t talk the whole night until legit maybe 3o minutes before we were about to leave and then it was like we had known each other forever, his sense of humor was the first thing that stood out to me as well.

How and where was our first date?

Bobby: Our first date we mini golfed and went to chili’s. I kicked your rear end. It was my best game of mini golf, I’ll never forget that.

How did you know I was “The One”?

Bobby: So many things added up.

Rebecca: I knew you were the one on a few occasions. 1. The night we went to Toby’s and you “got sick”, it was the first night I had to take care of you and was up all night worrying about you just wanting you to be okay. 2. Seeing you with my cousins the first Christmas they came home and watching you and Nichole cry. 3. The way you always make me feel like I’m the most important/beautiful/funny person in the room even though I know I’m not.

Bobby: That’s easy. 5 years and 6 months

Rebecca: 5 years! And we’ll be married in less than a year.

How do you resolve problems?

Bobby: We usually argue at first but then we sit down and talk about them.

Rebecca: We’re both very stubborn so we get heated pretty quick but what we fight about is nothing serious, I would say most of the time we talk our stuff through.

What do you two do for a living and are you using your college degree?

Bobby: I didn’t go to college.  Currently I’m a Manufacturing Manager.

Rebecca: I am an Office Manager and not really using my degree at the moment.

What key elements make a successful relationship & marriage?

Bobby: Communication, humor, and team work.

Rebecca: I think there are a lot of key elements that make our relationship work that will also benefit us in just a few short months when we get married. I think honesty, trust and compromise would be the three I think are key.

Hello February

6511183ae7278fd62a03c047d036fba1

Hi Friends! Long time no talk. This past month definitely went by quicker than I expected. Too quick if you ask me because I feel like I got nothing accomplished. I didn’t even make any goals for last month which allowed me to just enjoy the start of the new year. We have so much to look forward to in the spring, summer and fall that I am really happy that these winter months are going by quick.

February Goals:
  • continue with BBG
  • reorganize our back bedroom
  • stuff and stamp our save the dates
  • get our engagement photo book ordered
  • continue to read 3 books a month
  • celebrate valentines day with bobby
  • book our honeymoon
  • schedule all March blog posts

 

Thats all I have for this month. I’ll be sharing a wedding update sometime this month and I will also share which save the date we picked as soon as we send them out 🙂

Hope ya’ll are having a great week! 

2018 Goals & Resolutions

It seems crazy to be already sharing 2018 goals. The older I get the more it seems that the years just seem to go by way to fast, I feel like we just got engaged yesterday and I’m just trying to soak up every moment with the ones I love!

I know quite a few people who don’t like New Year’s Resolutions, but I love setting them and working my butt of to accomplish them. I think a lot of people think that they are a waste of time because they are easily forgotten after January is over! But for me I look forward seeing what I can do in a year.

So here are my 2018 goals and resolutions!

  1. BUDGET. BUDGET. BUDGET. Last year we were able to pay of almost all of what I wanted to for student loans but didn’t quite pay of 5 loans. This year we both have received pretty good raises and we have made it top priority to get rid of our debt. With the wedding coming up it is hard, but I am determined for us to be out of debt. The only positive I have from not paying off as much of my loans as I wanted is the fact that we are not putting any of our wedding costs on credit cards!
  2. COMPLETE BBG AT LEAST ONCE. I always start off great and end up losing my stride about halfway through. This year is the year for me to finish atlas one round as our wedding is in 10 months and counting.
  3. GET INTO A ROUTINE WITH BLOGGING. In 2017 I stuck to a pretty good schedule for the most part. This year I really want to exceed that and stick to a routine every month. I’ve planned out all of my posts for January, which is a great start 🙂
  4. READ 50 BOOKS. I read quite a bit in 2017 but didn’t keep count. The one thing I enjoy doing to relax is laying down with a good book. I received a few for Christmas this year so I will be able to start out the year with some good read hopefully!
  5. CROSS OF 5 THINGS FROM MY 30 BEFORE 30LIST. I think I will be able to check off a few of these by the end of this year! Some have already been crossed off. I can’t wait to do a check in (in may) with what has already been done.
  6. ENJOY WEDDING PLANNING. This goes without saying. Wedding planning can be stressful and now that the holidays are over it is all I think about. I want to enjoy every minute of planning our wedding because I know the next 10 months are going to fly by.

A good beginning makes a good end.

Life Lately: Christmas Edition

I hope everyone had a merry christmas spent with their loved ones! I know my little family sure did. This year I tried to really enjoy every minute as it was our first time hosting! Thank god my mom came over because she did 99% of the cooking & cleaning.

I spent almost no time on social media and only took a few photos, but it was so nice not to think about anything but enjoying time with family. My favorite part was watching Lola open her presents, it was so cute!

We had my side of the family and a few of Bobby’s side come over for dinner. We will celebrate again this weekend with Bobby’s side of the family! It looks like at the moment we will have 2 white christmas’ because it is supposed to snow again this weekend!

After everyone left, we enjoyed the rest of our night watching football and playing with our new toys! As you can see our fur baby was wore out.

Have a wonderful week friends!
