Boho dress + 7 things


I recently ordered some stuff from ASOS and I am so happy with it all! This boho style dress is the cutest! I have a feeling I’m going to be wearing it a lot this summer. Also, they are having a sale on all their dresses right now! This one and this one are in my cart already 🙂

Ps. My lip color is Lipsense in the shade “Luv it” and my sandals are old from Urban Outfitters. And heres 7 things because I love reading these types of posts so I thought i’d start my own 🙂

1. Game of Thrones premieres in 5 days and I can. not. wait! Just in time too because all my shows have ended or are about to end including the latest season of Criminal Minds which I’m watching right now.

2. The other day Jake and I filmed a mini video “Husband picks out my outfit” on my insta stories and it was really fun so I want to start doing more fun random things like that.

3. I’ve been wanting to just throw all my clothes away lately and start over completely new, but then I start going through my clothes and I’m like “well I have to keep that” and “Oh thats still cute” haha So I won’t end up doing that but I’m about to get rid of a ton of stuff that I still have from high school!

4. About to order our passports for our anniversary trip this fall and I am so so so excited 🙂

5. I tried dragon fruit in Hawaii and then again yesterday and I kind of like it. It sort of tastes like a really bland kiwi…but I like the texture.

6. The day Jake and I took these pictures it was 112 degrees and I felt like I was melting but it was really fun to drive around looking for cool places and backgrounds. I mapped a bunch of walls and stuff to come back to later so you will see some of them in upcoming posts.

7. I’m filming a haul on my insta stories either Friday or Saturday so check that out if you want or if you’re bored 🙂 I ordered some awesome stuff and it all arrived today!!

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful Wednesday 🙂

with love,


Summer Bucket List

Well we are well into summer and its been one of the hottest summers of my life! 🙂 I put together a summer bucket list because I love making lists and I was bored and why not?! So here it is….

Go Camping – We already went camping for fathers day but we have so many lakes around us that I’ve never been to and would love to explore.

Pool Days – Duh!  We have an old horse trough hooked up to a hose and filter. It might be a little redneck BUT it is awesome! (And it can’t pop) Win!

Pina Coladas – I have been searching pinterest for weeks for the best recipe. I thought I found one but it was probably the grossest thing I have ever made. haha #pinterstfail Anyways, I’m not giving up.

Lots of Ice-cream Our small town has an amazing ice-cream shop called Treats. Im obsessed. The lemon custard flavor is HEAVEN.

Go to a Baseball Game – Oddly enough I love baseball games even though I barely know anything about sports. lol

Read a Book – If anyone has any suggestions for great books leave them in the comments below, id love to hear them. My favorites stories to read are adventure or futuristic but any and all recommendations are appreciated!

Plan our next Trip – Jake and I have had so many people telling us to go on a cruise because its so relaxing to not have to think about anything and just have everything taken care of for you. So we are looking into it and I would be so so excited to go on one but my heart always pulls me towards the next grand adventure. The flying, driving, hiking, exploring, etc. We will see what happens 🙂

Top Golf – We have never been and I just became aware that you can order food while you golf so its definitely something we have to try!

Farmers Market – Fresh fruit and flowers? Who doesn’t love a good farmers market?

Road Trip – Road trips are kind of our jam. And I feel like its been a while, so we are due for a good road trip.

What do you have planned for summer? 🙂

A Summer Weekend

This girl cracks me up!

Love this mellow little boy^^^

And this wild little boy ^^^ 🙂

Happy Monday everyone! Our weekend was full of fun! It started with my Aunt and Uncle and their 4 sweet kids coming to town so we kicked off the weekend with a pool party and a BBQ!

Second, My niece turned 4! What?!?!  She had so much fun on her slip n slide. seeing her light up when she opened her presents and blew out her candles was the best! Love her so much. Happy Birthday Paisley Rae 🙂

My sister and baby Oaks came to town too! Well I guess I shouldn’t say baby because he’s walking! Everything needs to slow down! All my babies are getting big too freaking fast! So glad they are here though and excited to hang out!

Sunday was full of more swimming and hanging out by the pool, a yummy dinner, baking chocolate chip cookies and then a movie. For a while all the kiddos snuggled up on Jake and it was kinda the cutest ever.  A perfect Sunday night 🙂

Wishing you a wonderful week!



Pipeline Beach Sunset // Unedited

Flying the drone ^^

Red faces 🙂

No make up, beach hair & real smiles. Thats how I remember this moment. I remember being perfectly content, sitting in the sand, watching the sunset and not really thinking about any one thing in particular….but everything all at once. Reflecting on my life as a whole and imagining the next exciting thing that will happen. (I’m a dreamer, always have been) In order to preserve that memory I decided to leave all these images unedited. Exactly how I remember it.

Also Amber Fillerup was having a meet up at Pipeline! If you don’t know who she is, she’s an amazing lifestyle blogger and the one who inspired me to start my blog a few years ago. So I got to chat with her a little and eat Banzai bowls with my Mom. And my brother brought his drone and Jake and him flew that around. It was a good evening. The people, the place, the feeling. Just an ordinary beach sunset, but completely incredible.



Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay

This was probably my favorite day from our time in Hawaii! I’ve been here before as a kid so I thought snorkeling would be a piece of cake, but my mask was leaking so my nose would fill up with water which made me hold my breath instead of breathing through the snorkel and then I would come up for air and drain my mask…and I kept doing this and Jake and I were cracking up for like 20 minutes. lol We finally switched masks and then everything was fine.

Anyways, we saw so many beautiful fish, I would grab Jake and point at each new fish I saw! The Humuhumus are my favorite but probably not Jakes favorite because one of them literally swam full force right into Jakes mask like it was trying to head butt him or something haha He claims an eel also tried to eat him but I never saw it…lol  We basically spent the whole time laughing and in awe of all the beauty and it was just a really really wonderful day.

Also if you are looking for an underwater phone case, I have this one and it works great! And if you are wondering how the sound/speaker works with the case on, I haven’t noticed any problems at all, everyone can still hear me when talking on the phone and music plays just fine 🙂

Hope you are having a great week!

with love,
