Happy Birthday Babe!

I know I normally post Mondays and Thursdays, but I had to switch it up this week to wish hubs a happy, happy birthday!

I know I constantly go on about how I have the BEST husband, but you guys I REALLY do.

I don’t think there has been a single day since we got married that he has not made me laugh or at the very least smile.

There are a million little things he does for me- always makes sure that I get my cup of coffee in the morning no matter where we are in the world, reminds me to take my thyroid meds, when we walk on the sidewalk he always makes sure that I am not on the side the road is, feeds me every two hours even though he would be fine eating once a day, encourages my crazy cravings and on and on.

He is currently at an interview and I am at a Starbucks. He walked me into the Starbucks, got me settled in a nook and set me up with wifi on his iPad before he left. It’s not that I wouldn’t be fine if he just dropped me off, but he ALWAYS goes the extra mile.

I have the best husband in the world because despite my crazy, emotional, hangry moments he loves me.

Babe, I am so glad you were born 28 years ago today! You deserve all the best and I am so excited to celebrate you today because you are not just a great husband. You are a wonderful person-kind, generous, hard working, and not to mention a total hottie 😍!

Happy birthday my love! I love you so much 😚

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving has always held a special place in my heart. I know some people think of it as a day where you eat till you’re stuffed. Don’t get me wrong, it is partially that for me, but Thanksgiving always makes me feel warm and happy inside. It reminds me of family and memories and laughter.

It also reminds me to slow down and appreciate everything I have. Even though this year we haven’t had too much time to slow down I still wanted to take time to be thankful for the busy, the crazy, and everything in between.

Happy Thanksgiving friends!

Favorite moments in October

You guys, this post is more for me than anything else. This past month has been so crazy and filled with ups and downs and I just wanted to take a minute to talk about all my favorite moments before diving into another busy month!

Hubby had to be in Fontana for 2 weeks plus traveling for interviews so any time he came home was a highlight moment! The 2 week stent we were only apart for one of those weeks, but that’s the longest we had been apart since getting married. It was rough, but it made him being home all the sweeter!

Having a super quick trip to Vegas is 2nd only to hubby coming home. This was super fast, super delicious, and super fun! I also loved being able to have that experience with B and enjoy that time together!

We had the annual retreat with B’s work this month! It was amazing being able to relax and hang out with some good friends especially since this will be our last retreat. We did ice-breakers, danced, and ate lots of snacks!

Being at home with hubby and doing absolutely nothing! I think being away from home so much in October has made me really appreciate being at home with nothing to do. Sometimes routines can get boring, but right now I am craving some regularity to my weeks. I am still trying to enjoy and appreciate every moment!

The adventure continues this month with a flight and road trip and possibly some home renovations! I am planning on bringing you guys along and trying to keep posting as regularly as possible. Thanks for coming on this journey with me!

 

 

Vegas

A few weeks ago we went to Vegas for a quick little trip. I have very little to say other than Vegas is gorgeous and we definitely need to go back for longer than 24 hours next time so we can take it all in!

Since I have such few words here’s a little photo recap 😄

This sleeping fairy really spoke to me for some reason…

We checked into the Encore. THE nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. SO gorgeous.

Lunch at El Segundo Sol started with chips, salsa, and unpictured is a big bowl of guac!

Delicious dinner that started off with this salad that was almost too gorgeous to eat. Sadly the picture does it no justice.

Dessert-what a dessert! Chocolate mousse, peanuts, and that white chocolate shell on top? It had a gold flake in it.

It was a whirlwind of a day and it’s something I will always treasure especially since I got to do it with my best human. Love you babe!

Breathing Easy

Hi Friends!

I am so happy to be able to tell you that we can check off one goal I had! I passed my test and I am so relieved and happy 🙂 I will be back to my regularly scheduled posts next week and I am really excited to get back into full swing.

The hubs and I took some time to enjoy just breathing easy and each other’s company. Besides passing the test this past week was special since March 29th marked our 2 year anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been two gorgeous years since I married this amazing human that I get to call my husband.

I love being married, but that’s because I married my best friend. He is the most supportive, caring, generous human I know. He goes above and beyond to make my life easier. I mean, this guy woke up after only 3 hours of sleep to take me to my test because he knew how stressed I had been about it. I could go on and on, but then we’d have a book on how amazing my husband is 😉

Babe, if you’re reading this just know I think you’re awesome sauce. Thank you for all you do for us. I love you!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy V-Day to this cutie and all of you! I hope you are spending it with the one you love oooor if you’re working like us don’t forget to send some love through a call, text, email, DM, a smoke signal, whatever it may be 🙂

I just wanted to take time today to let you guys know I appreciate you taking the time to read the blog and send you some love and hugs!! Y’all are the best!

Enjoy the day and I’ll see you Friday!

Happy, Happy New Year

2017 has been a year filled with ups and downs, but if I’m being completely honest it has mostly been ups. It’s mostly due to the fact my better half is the bestest human on the planet 🙂

IMG-20171123-WA0002

We are so thankful for all the good, and looking back, also for the bad. I’ve loved 2017 and I am so excited to see what 2018 holds.

Here’s to hoping that 2018 is filled with love, laughter, and lotsa cookies 😉

To my partner in life (and food)

Happy birthday to my numero uno for life! I always say it, but it’s true, you are the bestest friend and husband I could ask for. I can’t wait to celebrate your birthday and spoil you like you spoil me everyday!

Thank you for being my better half babe. I love you further than the moon and back 🙂

XOXO,
