The great winter storm

coffee is always a must on snow days! We don’t have many snow storms in the south, so when Colin and I found out we were going to have one we had to go to the mountains. We left Friday after work and drove to the cabin. It didn’t start snowing until we were 20 minutes away and it really started to come down. There …

Here’s to 2017!!

After looking through pictures from 2016, i’ve realized all the things I forgot happen during the year. I found myself saying “that was this year?!?” multiple times.  Besides all the unfortunate events that happen this year, I found 2016 to be one of my most successful. Even though I created my blog at the end of 2015, I became more engaged and decided to stick …

Christmas 2016

I cannot believe Christmas has passed already! This year Colin and I spent Christmas morning in Charleston with his family. Colin’s family is huge compared to mine, so it can be a bit hectic at times. However, I always enjoy getting together with his family, it’s like a small reunion because they all live allover and are very different from each other. The first night …

Rose Gold Christmas

  This is my first year being able to really decorate for Christmas. Last year, we had a tree in our apartment but that’s about it! This year we don’t live in a small apartment and have room to decorate. I went with a rose gold silver theme, since our tree was mostly silver from last year and I didn’t want to buy all new …

Shiny Knits

December has to be the most unpredictable month of the year in the south. Just the other day I was walking around the block in my workout shorts and now the weather is saying we are going to be getting freezing rain this weekend. I never know what to wear until I step outside in the mornings and the most frustrating is not being able …

The Grove Park Inn

See, huge fireplaces! Views from the Blue Ridge Restaurant “Smokey” because of the wild fires Have any of you ever been the the Grove Park Inn!?! If not, you need to make a trip tomorrow for real! Especially during the holidays when everything is decorated and beautiful. This was our second year making a trip to the Grove Park Inn to enjoy Sunday brunch with Colin’s parents. It …

The perfect tree

My boots were covered in dirt because it was so dry! Marley looks so confused lol Hot cider 🙂 This is our second year cutting our own tree and living together for the holidays!! I hope we can keep up this tradition up, because we both enjoy it.  Last year we picked out the perfect little tree for our small one bedroom apartment (trust me, it …

Charleston pt. 2

To tell the truth, I originally bought this sweater dress thinking it was just a chunky sweater. But I guess that’s what I get for not wanting to try anything on! Personally, I hate trying clothes on it the store, especially during the colder months when there are three layers to take off! However, I am loving how this look turned out. I’ve also been loving …

Charleston pt. 1

When is the Fall weather going to get here?! I’m pretty sad I haven’t been able to wear a coat or layer yet! While we were in Charleston, I was hoping it would have been a bit more chiller because of the sea breeze, sadly it was just as warm as Charlotte 🙁 Colin’s parents still live in Charleston, so we visit a good bit. We …

The Slip Dress

  Even though I work in the City, I hardly go visit it on the weekend. Sitting in traffic everyday really puts you off wanting to go back to a place. haha. Anyway, there isn’t much open when its not a 9-5 weekday. The city its self is made up of mostly corporate offices and apartments. So, the other weekend Colin and I parked and just walked …
