DIY Bridesmaid Proposal Gift Bag


Alec and I have been engaged since June 10th of last year and time has flown by so quickly since then. You can read more about how Alec proposed to me here
We agreed to wait until the summer of 2016 to tie the knot so that I could focus on finishing nursing school and taking the NCLEX. As the last few weeks of college were wrapping up, I decided to do a little crafting. I made gift bags asking my girls if they would be in my wedding. This is a great and inexpensive way to "propose" to the ladies that you want to have by your side on your wedding day.

If you want to make one of your own or pin this for when you tie the knot...here is how:

Re-Connecting to What Brings Me Joy


I've taken a break from blogging. I fell away from it one day in an all of the sudden type of way. I felt like it became more of a chore than anything and that not many people were looking at it, so I stepped back. A lot has happend this year and I've grown a lot in some areas and have fallen away from what I used to love in some other aspects of my life. So, Here I am. I dyed my hair blonde because I needed a change (and blondes have more fun, right?) I'm 5 weeks away from graduating from college. I'm planning a wedding. And now I'm writing again in an attempt to re-connect with what I used to find happiness in. 

Does this ever happen to you? Something stops making you happy, so you let it go only to find yourself missing it down the road?

Homemade Zucchini Bread


We have been getting lots of squash so far this summer from our CSA. Actually, it probably isn't "lots" to most people, but for a home that houses only two members and a chubby cat, one of which eats squash, we have been getting a lot of squash. I've been trying to eat it as fast as I can, but this week I had to get creative.  I've done roasted squash in stir fry, squash on my chicken vegetable skewers and have some more to use up fast. So, zucchini bread, it was.

Chicken and Vegetable Skewers

Happy 4th of July, everyone!
I hope you are all out there celebrating with your loved ones, decked out in red, white and blue clothing. Don't forget the nail polish! Today I'm sharing a healthy grill or oven recipe that uses up some of your summer produce.I know I've been posting a lot of chicken recipes lately, but chicken is a healthy food and we eat a lot of it in this home. I really like chicken because a little chicken can go a long way with the right recipes.
Today I'm going to show you how I make chicken and vegetable skewers. I know this is an easy meal idea and you could probably just look at the picture and know what to do, but sometimes people get into a meal idea rut. So, I just want to share this little recipe because it is one of Alec's favorites and an easy summer go-to meal.

Intentionally Focused: My First Bible Study



Remember way back on January 1st when we all made Resolutions for the New Year? Well, this year I really wanted to make them real resolutions. Not the kind where they are so steep that you quit 2 weeks later. Real, honest resolutions to improve my life. My first one was to "get closer to God, and closer to who he wants me to become." 
So, I started with a Bible Study. Something to keep me focused every day, to keep me talking to God and more importantly listening to God. I found the Good Morning Girls website and I absolutely love it. I highly recommend it for anyone seeking fellowship, friendship and a closer connection with God. My first Bible study was one that they created titled "Intentionally Focused," as a guide to becoming intentionally focused. It helped me learn how to become a better me, how to serve Him better and how to always act with intention. They give you all the supplies you need as free-print outs, post encouraging videos and send encouraging emails. It was great.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza


I know I just posted this irresistible recipe for Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese two days ago, but after serving that one up Alec immediately requested more. I still had half a bottle of buffalo sauce, so I decided I'd switch our usual pizza night into Buffalo Chicken pizza night. Per Alec's specific request, of course.
