Here's a list of 10 tasty treats I'm eatin' up all around the blogosphere:

01. A great how-to from Redhead Recipes.

02. Just when I thought I couldn't love Zooey anymore, she goes and makes the cutest music video for 'In The Sun'.

03. Why doesn't anything this cool happen in Wisconsin? Guess I'll have to travel overseas.

04. These sweet, little "book belongs to" stickers will be perfect for future books for UJ.

05. Just when I thought I couldn't love my wedding colors {pink + orange} any more than I do...

06. Gives new meaning to the phrase "To have and To hold"

07. Hannah, this "dish" is dedicated to you :)

08. Last summer, my girlfriends and I went to the lake and hopefully in 40+ years our swimwear will be this cool

09. On Saturday, Chad and I watched "To Catch A Thief" and I couldn't help but love G. Kelly's style

10. Ree makes me want to go out and buy these 'people' colored pencils for my classroom...it was the first time that I had ever heard of something like this.

There you have it, 10 goodies from my Google archives. Here's hoping they give you ideas and inspirations like they've done for me. Hopefully, over the weekend, I'll be away from the computer and off enjoying Memorial Day weekend with my family. Oh, and starting up the long task of wedding thank-you notes.

Enjoy the sunshine, friends!


these colorful bowls of mine.

For one of my showers, I recieved this 4-pc. colorful bowl set from my godmother. It's one of those gifts that wasn't on my registry, but I'm so glad I have it. We've already used every single one and they are the perfect popcorn bowl.

It definitely livens up my popcorn + Real Housewives date with myself :)

a decor detail.

We've got our first pair of visitors coming over to the house tonight. Chad's cousins are stopping by for pizza, which means I've gotta go and make this place presentable. Before I go, I wanted to show you what they are going to see before they step into our apartment.

I got this welcome mat for Chad this year for Christmas and am so glad that I finally was able to put it out. It's everything I want people to see right before they come in: cheerfulness, color, and charm. Now, I have to find things that I can put around our house that feature the same 3 C's.

Doormat: from Modcloth. Unfortunately, it's not available anymore, but here are some more interesting mats.
Shoes: my wedding flats from Nordstrom. Find more REPORT flats here.

the one with the honeymoon recap

We're doing the wedding + honeymoon recap "Pulp Fiction" style {as Chad would say}.We'll start with the honeymoon and work our way back. We went up to Door County, WI and stayed in a charming little town called Ephraim, about a four-hour drive away from our city.

Before I start, here's a little throwback to my childhood {watch up to 0:30}:

I watched this with Chad last night, and he was giving me the "have you lost it?" look because I was laughing so hard. I used to say this to my sister whenever she would talk about her honeymoon :)

Starting off the picture reel is one of Chad and one of me, happy as clams. The whole week, you could tell we had just gotten married: we couldn't stop smiling. And it wasn't just "pose for pictures" smile that we had for some of the wedding pictures, it was "wow, we're so giddy and happy and in love" smiles.

Here are some shots of the signs around Washington Island that we saw while walking around. Yes, walking around. When we were boarding the ferry, we couldn't believe all the people that were paying 25.00 dollars to bring their cars on the ferry. Well, next time up there, we're going to be shelling out that car fee and doing the Washington Island experience right. The island is about 35 square miles and we just thought we'd go to the center of town and hang out there. The center of town consists of  the school, the senior center, and one open restaurant {which we of course ate at since the 2-mile hike there exhausted us}.  That almost 5-mile hike in nearly 8-year-old Puma sneakers caused the biggest blisters on both of Chad's feet. {Sorry if that felt like an over share, but hey, I want to give you the unedited version.}

Next I give you two of the most beautiful pictures I took there.
1st: the sun setting over Peninsula State Park.
2nd: the most calm lake I have ever seen in my life.

Note: we did more on our honeymoon than what these pictures show. We took 3 of our disposable cameras that weren't used up from the wedding, so a lot of our pictures are being developed right now. So in addition to this, I'll have to show you the most amazing pizza we ate, the quaint little coffee shop we went to, the fish boil we experienced, and the view of the trip up there.

Our four days in Door County was everything that we wanted out our honeymoon. Low-key. Relaxing. No Agenda. Jim Rome. Togetherness. Amazing views. Exactly the right time away. Fiestaware. Good Food. An easy first four days of married life.

Mr. & Mrs. H.


Amanda H. {the Mrs. version}

 Hello from Mrs. H!

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon and we couldn't be happier about married life so far. The wedding was so much better than I imagined it all these years. I will recap our wedding in detail once I get the professional pictures, but for now, here's a shot of my groom and I walking out of the church, courtesy of my mother-in-law. I want to make sure all the details from the wedding are remembered, so you might get more information than you bargained for.

We are going to be pretty busy for the next couple weeks getting the house put away and the names changed. Hopefully, I'll be able to get on the ol' blog and share some details about life around here.

Chad's Wife :)


5 {tiny, 24-hour} days.

That is all that stands between me and the wedding day. We are rolling with any and all things that happen from here on out.  I have missed writing the blog, but I will be back with pictures, stories, details that I know we all want to talk about after the wedding.

I've been practicing writing my new name...it's fun:)
