Happy Monday, friends! I hope all of you had a wonderful Easter weekend! We spent ours in Boone celebrating our friends' wedding and it was wonderful! They had a small ceremony that overlooked the mountains and it was stunning. Since we were out of town for Easter, Stephen and I, along with two of our friends, found an early service at a church in Boone and we all enjoyed it. It was a little different not celebrating with our normally family traditions but was fun to try something new.

I've yet to do a confession post but figured I would give it a try!

I confess I desperately want a few pieces of Gray Malin artwork. There isn't a piece of his photography that I don't love!

I confess that this whole eating healthy and working out thing is super tough right now. Seriously, though. Any tips? We are on the road every weekend and it's so hard for me to resist stopping for something quick or turning down a slice of pizza if that's what everyone else is having. And even though I honestly do enjoy working out, I have been so busy that I've just not been making it a priority these last couple of weeks.

I confess that giving up shopping for Lent was not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. It was honestly a refreshing break (though I confess that I did slip and purchase this dress for my bridal shower...but there was a reason so it's okay, right?) It's nice not spending as much on things I don't need so I'm going to try to continue this habit on into spring.

I confess I have a very strange addiction with The Arrangement. Has anyone else watched it? I don't know why I love it so much but it's become my Sunday night TV routine. 

I confess that I'm a crazy puppy mom. To the point that as much as I want kids, I wonder if I should have them because anytime Sophie acts even remotely different than usual, I'm in a panic. Anyone else like this with their pups?

I confess that I'm not as stressed about wedding planning as I should be. We're less than 4 months (eek!) away from the wedding which is so crazy! There are so many little things I need to be tying up but I just have not been all that worried about them. 

I confess that I have not unpacked from our mountain weekend. I had such high ambitions for unpacking, laundry, and cleaning but instead I snuggled my sweet pup, went grocery shopping, and food prepped instead.

Cheers to Monday! 


  1. I definitely DVR the arrangement every sunday and watch it on Monday - I love it as well! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I am trying to not get sucked into The Arrangement but I am failing. It's like a soap opera, I am hooked! Boone is so beautiful, glad you had a lovely weekend.

  3. The eating well / working out consistently is always super tough when you're on the go on the weekends. Hope that you're able to get back to a good routine soon! Happy Monday :)

  4. Girl, I am the EXACT same way with my dog. I'm so obsessed with his health that I have insurance on him and we upped it last week because they said they heard a slight heart murmur and today he's at the vet getting an EKG and stress test done. I'm definitely a crazy dog mom. And I started watching The Arrangement one afternoon and now I'm hooked too. But I'm SO far behind. <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. Cute post! Love Gray Malin :-)

  6. Well, you know I'm the same way with Finn so I totally understand the dog love! The Arrangement is almost like so bad that it's good, lol! I'm hooked, too!

  7. I only have my family dog, but do have my own horse- and I drive myself nuts worrying about him! I've joked that he's preparing me for kids, because after 2 years of his accident-magnet shenanigans I've learned when to panic and when to sigh and pick up more antibiotic cream haha

  8. I literally think the same thing with my puppy. Anytime she sleeps more than usual I freak out lol. I already know I am going to be THAT mom one day lol.

  9. I love Gray Malin's stuff too! I was at Home Goods the other day and picked up a very similar piece for only $25!! Definitely check it out if you don't want to shell out the $$$.

    xo, Kristina

  10. Love the confessions. Anytime I am not in my normal routine, i.e. not at home I really struggle with eating well too. I think it is good you aren't stressed about wedding stuff.
