Charleston SC


We just got back to Indianapolis from our South Carolina trip a couple of days ago! Our condo is semi- clean (i tend to stay up the entire night before we travel scrubbing my apartment so i can come home to a clean place and be like, “ahhhh” when i walk in the door) but there is going to be so much laundry, unpacking and cleaning still to do the rest of the week.

I’m so happy to be home and going through these photos from our week in Chalreston makes my heart so happy. Jake and I always tend to have way too much fun together, but this particular trip was so perfect. We had a blast at Sullivan’s Island drinking at Poe’s Tavern, paddle boarding with the dolphins on Shem Creek was quite the adventure, we ate our fill of fresh seafood and played sand volleyball at the Wind Jammer on Isle of Palms

all while celebrating our three year anniversary

Myrtle Beach Wedding 


June is such an exciting month around these parts because it’s not only full of sunshine and birthdays and lots of summer treats, but also a time with tons of weddings! This weekend we spent a few days in Myrtle Beach celebrating my friend Brittani’s wedding.


Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday we were stupid giddy 18 year old girls going to college in West Lafayette trying to meet new friends, get good grades, searching for love and being crazy together on the weekends.



& here we are, all these years later, standing next to each other as she says I do to Josh on her wedding day!

 I don’t know how much we cried over the weekend but we were all big babies getting ready and couldn’t keep ourselves together when her Dad gave his speech. Brittani’s friendship has meant so much to me and to see her so happy and in love is something else!

Go Hawks Go


Hands down, the highlight of my weekend last week was getting to meet up in Naperville with all of the girls on my dad’s side of the family who i miss terribly every single day. i feel so fortunate to have such wonderful fun women in my life.
I don’t know what could have made our 8th annual girl’s weekend any more fun. The weekend was filled with wine, dancing, costumes, a photo booth, a lip stick flask, the Harlem shake plus to top it off we did a parade throughout my Aunt’s neighborhood trying to wake up the neighbors.









Behind Bed Decor DIY


I don’t know about you all but I have completely fell in love with the monogram trend. I want to have initials and letters everywhere in our new condo! This is one of the easiest decorations I have made and it turned out super cute!

All you need:

  • Print a large initial on computer paper ( you can get creative and use a wood letter, scrapbook paper, fabric, etc)
  • Glue
  • Two large frames ($15.00 each from Hobby Lobby)
  • A Wooden “&” sign you could also do a heart or plus sign too
  • Scissors



How in the world is it already June? May was gone in a blink of an eye! A few girlfriends and I celebrated Brittani, the bride to be, in Chicago over the weekend. We had endless amounts of Mexican food at a delicious restaurant downtown and topping it off with pitchers of maragarittas. We danced the night away, had a party bus and stayed up terribly late catching up and reminiscing about our time together.
