  It’s kind of hard to believe that we’re already smack dab in the middle of Summer! Well, it’s really not so hard to know that it’s summer when you live in the scorching state of Texas, but, you know what I mean. I try to be budget conscious and not buy a cartload of new products each season, but I do have a few new (and old) Summer favorites that I thought I’d share! Most of these items can be found at places like Target or Wal-Mart (click on their titles for more info about each product). What items … Continue reading Summer Favorites

3 Ways to Save on Groceries (without Cutting Coupons)

In my blogging absence, I have been finishing up the unpacking and organizing at our new place. I haven’t done very much cooking in the past week, but grocery shopping is something that I just can’t get away from. I’m pretty sure that I’ve actually been at the store more than usual during the past few weeks. I thought this would be a great time to share the apps that I like to use for saving money on groceries!

Our Wedding // D+S

It’s hard to believe that our first wedding anniversary is already upon us. It’s been a great first year! I loved wedding planning, I really wanted our day to be unique and fun. Our wedding was featured on two wedding blogs, which you can find here // Southern Aisle and Groom Sold Separately. We chose this pavilion, which was built before the Depression in Fort Worth’s Trinity Park, for our wedding and reception. Drew and I had a great time finding vintage pieces for wedding decor (now used as home decor!). A few of my favorites are a pretty blue … Continue reading Our Wedding // D+S
