As it turns out, wedding nightmares are really a thing. From the moment I got engaged and started planning my wedding, I had nightmares about things like the dress not fitting at all and having to wear toilet paper as my wedding gown, a blizzard in May keeping all my guests from showing up, and […]

Friday was my BIRTHDAY!!! I decided to take the whole day, and weekend off, to just celebrate and (over) indulge! My birthday is my favorite day of the year! The second is Christmas! I woke up Friday around 10 am, and my husband and I went out to breakfast, which is probably my favorite meal of […]

By the time I turned 30 a couple of years ago, I probably mentioned more than a handful of times that I thought 30 was the new 20. It might have had something to do with me trying to accept I was no longer in my 20s, however, as these two years went by, and […]

A year and a half ago RJ (my husband) got offered a really good position in Phoenix. After talking about it we decided it was a good opportunity for him, and so he moved away from me. The position only required a two year commitment, so we knew it wouldn’t be permanent. After a few […]

It’s interesting how dreams and plans change over time. I remember trying to figure out what I wanted to go to college for. I had my hopes set on being a personal trainer, but my dad kept telling me to do something with Business. About a week before classes started I switched to Business, and […]

I can’t believe we’re half way into 2019, and my birthday is right around the corner. I’m turning 33, and feeling like I’m top of the world. I love lists, so I decided to make a somewhat aggressive list of 35 items to complete before I turn 35, which gives me about two years. Aggressive […]

Iceland is truly a magical place. We landed after a six hour flight from Minneapolis, at 6:30am local time. Some car rentals have offices inside the airport, while others, like the one we booked our car with, is a short shuttle ride away. We rented a small car for our 3 days in Iceland so […]

You guys…. we have MORE snow coming this weekend, and it feels like I’m living December 23th over, and over, and over again. Why December 23rd? Because at least on the 24th and 25th there’s some major fun stuff, like celebrating Jesus, the yummy meals, and the gifts. But, no, we are just living December […]

I get lots of questions about my hair, and hear quite often that I’m “lucky” to have the hair that I do. I think that’s totally fair, since my mom and grandma passed on the genes of full, thick hair. But having full hair doesn’t mean “healthy” hair. Growing up in Brazil I always felt […]
