My Second Favorite Salmon Recipe

Yep, you read that title right – this is my SECOND favorite salmon recipe.  My first favorite salmon recipe is a story for another day ;).  In all seriousness, this is a really delicious, super simple, and healthy way to make salmon, and so far it’s been a hit with my dinner guests!  I’ve had a good amount of people ask for the recipe, so I decided I should probably give it a post. In recent years,…

Honeymoon in Tulum

Hi Guys! After an amazing wedding week at Sundance Resort in Utah with so many people we love, Blake and I took off to Tulum for a relaxing week with just the two of us :).  Whoever thought of the honeymoon concept is genius – it’s so nice to get away and spend that time with the person you just decided to spend forever with!  I will always be grateful for that time Blake and I were able…

4th of July Patio Party

I LOVE the 4th of July!  So much that we purposely decided to leave on our honeymoon after the fourth so that we could celebrate in America :).   However, after a whirlwind of a week (we got married out of state) we have only a couple days at home before we take off again, and that means I don’t have a whole lot of time to put into celebrating!  With a little bit of help from…

A Look at Flynn Skye

Some recent Flynn Skye additions to my closet have made that daily decision of what to wear too easy ;).  Flynn Skye pieces are designed to be day to night, day at the beach to dinner out with friends, or brunch with girlfriends to an evening summer wedding.  Easy, breezy summer pieces that I have been living in since I got them.  I especially have loved packing some of them on recent trips – so light…

For Love and Lemons, Foxes and Wolves

A couple weeks ago, Syd introduced you to an adorable flirty dress from For Love and Lemons‘ Summer 2014 line, Hot Texas Nights.  The line Hot Texas Nights has a huge element of lace throughout it, and For Love and Lemons is fast becoming know for their signature lace look.  Here are some lacier shots to take you into the weekend…;).

MZ Wallace | Metro Tote

It’s a gym bag, a weekend bag, a tote bag, a diaper bag, a computer bag, or an extra large purse…you name it!  I love the material – it’s made out of MZ Wallace’s signature Quilted Oxford Nylon.  Although the bag looks great, pictures don’t do it justice.  You kind of have to feel it, and then I promise you’ll fall in love ;).  And to sweeten the deal – the bag is water/stain resistant, and…

Healthy Vegan Date Shake

Yesterday, I posted a picture of myself holding my favorite Whole30 treat – a vegan date shake.  Now I’m going to tell YOU how to make it!  This shake is dairy-free, gluten-free, and refined-sugar free!  Before you get bummed on all of that, I PROMISE it’s good!  Trust me, I’ve NEVER liked dates, and would have never thought I’d like this shake.  But cutting dairy and sugar out of my diet for the last 30 days meant no…

Whole 30: My Results

I am both excited and hesitant to write this post, as I’m not sure how best to put it into words.  There are so many opinions and methods surrounding diet, health, and wellness, and I definitely don’t think there is any one way that works for every one.  All of our bodies are different, and require different care and attention. That being said, I want to talk to you about a specific method called Whole30.  …

Will you be my flower girls?

Crowning Tae and Vivian as our flower girls was a no-brainer, especially after they both wore princess dresses to our engagement breakfast the morning after Blake proposed! Taelin Jean Hansen is my (Jen’s) sister Tahni’s little girl, and Vivian is Blake’s brother Michael’s.  They will make a pretty good team! To ask them to be flower girls, I found a card design on Etsy, had it printed, and wrote them a little note.  They both…
