One of our first hikes

I loved this hat so much 

Rehearsal Dinner 

Wedding Day! 

I think it is always fun to look back at our relationship and all the good/hard times we have gone through. But through it all I love Kiel more than ever and learn to love new things about him everyday. I would not change my life with him for anything. I love you babe!

{Ireland in 80 Some Odd Days}

Yes Ladies it is coming up so fast! I am so excited :) I made this little outfit up on Polyvore. I won't wear this exact thing but I really like this stuff for air travel. The flight is about 8 hours so I really want to make sure I am comfy! I also went shopping last night! I got some really great stuff that you will see soon!

{Weekend Review}

This past week I was sick again and could not seem to shake it! Ugh :( but I feel way better starting out this week. Every Friday I get to hang out with Kiel all day and it is one of the best days of my week! This past weekend we hung out and on Sunday we went to Relics which is an antique place right down the street from us. This is were I found my blue bread box! I love it so much and I am going to get a cool stencil and write Bread Box on it. 

The first picture is from our honeymoon and I love it so much. 
The top right picture is of some flowers Kiel and I got which makes me so happy, this spring and summer is going to be full of fresh flowers. 
I also found Polyvore this week! YAY! I am going to make tons of boards for teachers :) 
The bottom right is of course the bread box from above! I am so excited about it. 

How was your weekend my friends?

The past few days I have been sick again :( I am not sure why but I really don't like being sick! This past week I made cupcakes because I was craving them! I made chocolate strawberry cupcakes with a buttercream frosting. They were really great and hit the spot! 

Yesterday we had thunderstorms and I really enjoy storms because they help you sleep better. I really enjoy looking at storm clouds also. 

This past weekend I went to a friends daughters birthday and she went all out for her girl! The party was so so so cute and looked like it stepped out of Pinterest. 
She also made this super cute poster/chalkboard sign and I love it! I want to do it one day when I have babies

I hope you all are having a good week and have a great weekend!

{Valentines Day}

What a wonderful day! Today was so perfect, I think it's really funny that now I am married I do not need tons of stuff or lots of chocolate, I just want time with Kiel. Which is what I got today! A whole day with my husband :)
I made some hearts with words or sayings on them and put them around the house this morning, Kiel loved them! 
I am so in love with these plates! If anyone knows where I can find these than please tell me ASAP!  
Dessert crepes the Funky Monkey, banana, nutella and homemade whipped cream!
Black and Blue crepes (steak and blue cheese) and mac and cheese!  
My sexy husband!  
What Kiel got me for Valentines Day but I loved spending money on him today so he got a new Bible, and the movies The Pacific and Band of Brothers. He is so hard to get gifts for so I am glad he found some stuff today :) 
I had such a great first married Valentines Day!

{The Last Few Days}

I took this picture this morning, I tried to get the snowflakes on the window but I don't think that worked...but the sunrise was very beautiful. Here in MO the weather is suppose to warm up a little which I am so grateful for!
Yesterday I needed a coffee and so I got some which was really great. I love my Starbucks!  
I was so sad that the lovely Mrs. Shirley Temple Black passed away. I thought she was a lovely young woman and it seems she has a wonderful life! The hubs and I had some Shirley Temples the other night to remember her :) I saw this in the paper yesterday and it made me smile 
Tomorrow is Valentines Day!!!! We don't have a lot planned because we want to save some money so if we go out I will let you know :) 

Have a great day tomorrow friends!

{ favorite commercials!}

I love the Brits! I think this commercial is so great, the accents are of course amazing and I believe that Brits do make the best villains ;)

What do you guys think? I think this could be a really good movie (especially because of the Irish accent!) I bet it is a tear jerker though!

Now I know this movie will be great. Our church did a whole study on Noah over the past month and it has been really awesome. I think this movie will end up being really great.

Today is my day to catch up on homework and maybe go out and get lunch! I also need to go grocery shopping... Today is going to be a long day. Tonight I do get to celebrate a friends birthday at Red Robin which should be a great time :)

How is your weekend going??

{Dead fish}

Today in art class we used dead fish to create this art. Yeah dead fish! It smelled super gross but it is kind of cool looking. I added the black and gold and green but the blue is from the fish. This was the last week for our art class which makes me sad because it was so relaxing. Next week we start music...I like music but I am not sure what to expect. 
Oh and it is 100 days till I go to Ireland!!!!!!!!!! 

What do you do to relax?

{Birthday Present & a Snow Day}

That is right ladies and gentleman! I am going to Ireland in May!!!! The hubs and I are considering this our first anniversary present to each other. My mother in law came into some money and is taking the family! I am so stinkin excited. I could not tell you all at first because my sister in law didn't know so I did not want to spoil it :) 
I can tell you that I am kind of a nosy person and I figured out that we might be going to Ireland early on but I wasn't 100% for sure till my birthday.
Today we got a ton of snow already (well for around here anyway) so this is at my campus this morning. My first class was not canceled today so I had to go :( 
but I am hoping that tomorrows classes get canceled so I can say home and clean! 
I hope you all are having a safe and warm day :)

{ This and That }

Just checking in today, I got sick over my birthday which was not fun and so I am still trying to get better. I heard it is also suppose to snow this week here in MO :( I don't like snow but only because I have to walk around campus all day in it. I think I would rather like snow if I did not have to walk around in it all day while still trying to look cute. The hubs and I are making spaghetti squash tonight (only my second time ever eating it.) I hear it is really good though! Tomorrow we are hanging with our church Life Group and watching the game together so I am making some buffalo chicken dip! I love that stuff :) I hope you all are having a great weekend!


What is your favorite Super Bowl day snack??
