Winter Wedding at the Albuquerque Balloon Museum

It’s basically taken a year for me to put together this post of my favorite photos from our special day. I love how they turned out, better than I could’ve ever imagined. Our photographer, Danielle Joy, did an amazing job and she traveled from Utah to New Mexico for our […]

Bottle Opener Starburst Mirror

My Poppop was a collector of many things. One of the collections handed down to me was his Coca-Cola Collection. My dad recently acquired all of his bottle opener collection. We wanted to do something to display them creatively, so I came up with this starburst mirror. Once I found the […]

Zelena Halloween Costume – Wicked Witch Refashion

For everyone that watches Once Upon a Time, I decided to be Zelena for Halloween. For everyone else, I’m just the Wicked Witch of the West. I was never a big Wizard of Oz fan, but I love, love , LOVE Wicked, the musical. So when they tied the Wicked […]

Chicken Shenanigans : First Time Chicken Owners

Ever since we got chickens a few short months ago, everyone loves to ask me about them. Not “how’s married life?” or “how’s Washington?” it’s always “how are the chickens doing?” and “are they laying eggs yet?” No eggs yet, but everyday is one day closer and closer. Since everyone […]

Wedding Crafts: What I DIY’d and What I Didn’t

Pinterest. Pinterest is like the holy grail of everything weddings. You can plan every detail of your big day from Pinterest and you can find tutorials on how to DIY anything and everything. It’s a bit overwhelming but of course I had a list of things that I wanted to […]
