Ripley’s Aquarium & Other Attractions

Our Ripley's Experience

On our first full day in Gatlinburg, we went to the coolest aquarium I have ever been to- The Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies.  Voted one of the 10 Best Aquariums by USA Today Reader's Choice, I knew our fish and penguin loving little guy would be in awe. Everything in the aquarium is over-the-top fun, and there are all kinds of exhibits and … [Read more...]

10 Years

10 Years

To Mikey on our celebration of 10 years, We have an epic love- an everlasting one. The kind they've written about since the beginning of time, and will continue to pen long after we've turned to dust. Love songs can't touch what we have. Not even close. In all the heartbreak and uncertainty we've been through, my love for you has only … [Read more...]

30 for 30

30 for 30

Tomorrow I turn the BIG 30. I say that like it's old- but it's really not at all. Sometimes I feel like I barely know what I'm doing. In the grand scheme of things, I'm still a tween. But, I remember when I was a kid, 30 seemed so far away. An age that would take me an eternity to reach, and yet- here I am. I wanted to take a few minutes to … [Read more...]

Hair Care Favorites

As a former hairstylist- trying out hair products is kinda my favorite thing in the world. I try out so many products, that I sometimes forget to share with you what I'm currently using. As a beauty blogger, I remember the makeup- but I'm usually trying out just as many hair products...if not more. My Summer hair routine has been fairly simple, … [Read more...]

Summer to Fall Fashion

Summer to Fall Fashion with Pink Blush

None of my clothes fit! If you've been following me lately, you know that, due to some health issues, I've lost quite a bit of weight. The upside of this, is that I get to shop for new clothes. But, when you're not sure what size you're going to end up being- this can be an interesting task. That's why I'm so thankful for the clothes from Pink … [Read more...]

Welcome to Our Back Yard

Welcome to Our Back Yard

When we went house hunting earlier this year, we knew we wanted a great back yard. One that would be large enough for entertaining, have decent landscaping, and have plenty of room for a certain little boy to explore. We also knew we wanted to live in a neighborhood, so we were faced with a challenge. When we looked at this house, and saw this back … [Read more...]

Meal Plan Monday

Meal Plan Monday

I'm getting this up super late, but- LIFE. Also, I'm just going to share the links to the recipes I'm using instead of posting the pictures, because lately so many bloggers are getting into trouble for sharing photos, even if they're giving credit to the original poster. Argh. But, I digress...here's my Low FODMAP friendly Meal Plan for the … [Read more...]

The Dining Table of My Dreams

The Dining Table of My Dreams

I HAVE INTERNET! Honestly one of the hardest parts of moving is that you don't have time for a life for awhile with all of the cleaning and the unpacking. The second hardest part was waiting for our internet to be switched over. But, seriously. We still have a ton of work to do, and hours upon hours of painting ahead of us. But, we're … [Read more...]
