3 Months Later

I'm back! Well...sort of. 

I'm a married woman of one month! Aaaa!

It's still a very surreal feeling. Definitely one of the best days of my life. 

I'm trying to get myself together and get back to blogging.

I haven't been very inspired lately, but I've been thinking its about time to get back to it.

Here's a couple engagement photos by Milton Yang Photography. He is so awesome!

Tasty Tuesdays: Twinkie Cupcakes

These cupcakes are really good, but they don't make me think of Twinkies.

My sister loves them. And she said she doesn't like cream fillings, ha I knew better.

Get the recipe here.

Fashion Fridays: 3 Things

Three things I don't get about this summer's fashion trends. I do wear some of these trends, but I'm not trying to fill my whole closet with these times.

1. Why is everything sheer?

2. Why is everything so neon blinding?

3. Why is everything not symmetrical?

Just a Thought: Trusting & Transitioning


Time is flying by and my wedding date keeps getting closer and closer. I’m about to cross over to another chapter of my life. Sometimes when I think about it, I get scared. I’m not going to be relying on my parents anymore. I’m really not a kid anymore. It’s a bittersweet moment. I’m excited to start my family with my fiancĂ©, but I’m sad that things are changing. I know that my family will always be there, but it definitely is different because my fiancĂ© will now be number one. As this transition of my life comes near, I reminded that I must trust God. All the ups and downs of life, He remains the same. As long as I trust Him, I know everything is going to be okay.

Tasty Tuesdays: Marshmellow Caramel Popcorn

Sometimes I just crave popcorn. This is one of those times, so I thought why not try this delicious looking recipe. I got it from Pinterest of course, my favorite place on the web. But...we have no browns sugar, fail! I decided to use regular sugar. I think it turned out great:-)

Directions
 1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
 9-10 marshmallows
 12 c. popcorn.

Microwave brown sugar and butter for 2 minutes. Add marshmallows. Microwave until melted, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Pour over popcorn. (Go here to see Pinterest pic)

Monday Obsessions: Britt Nicole

I got this album a couple of weeks ago by Britt Nicole called Gold. It is super catchy and the lyrics are so legit. My favorite songs are Stand, Seeing for the First Time, and Look like Love.

Monday Obsessions: Bryan Fenkart

Ever since I saw Memphis the Musical, I've been reading up about the two leads; Felicia Boswell and Bryan Fenkart. They are both so talented. Can't wait to see what album Felicia puts out in the future. Bryan is so good as the main character in Memphis, that  I had to check out his music. I must say its been on repeat since last week. He doesn't write fluff like most artists these days, it's definitely music that you can relate too and touches you. My favorite songs are Simple and Grey, Light Years Away, and Ok. Check out his album Simple and Grey on ITunes! You'll be glad you did.

Fashion Friday

Finally I'm posting a fashion post two weeks later. I just threw this on after work without much thought to it. It's so hot outside! I love my yellow Michael Kors bag, so perfect for the summer.

Just a Thought: Praise Him Anyway

I have no idea who sings this song, but my church choir sings this.

Hope the lyrics speak to you like they speak to me.


Verse 1:
Though I walk through the valley
I will have no fear
No matter what they tell me
I know that he's right here
Though it's been a long journey
I have kept the faith
By your spirit I'm learning
Learning how to say

Even in the hard times
Even when I feel pain
I made up my mind
I'm gonna praise him anyway

Verse 2:
I don't know where I'm headed
Or how long it will take
But I know that his hand has
Brought me all this way
So when troubles come around
And the storms get rough
I'll be safe and sound
In his arms of love

Bridge:
Through the fire
And through the rain
I will lift up his name
Though I may feel discouraged
He is worthy to be praised

After all he has done
And how far we have come
His word and his promise
Forever remains
And I know this is true
He will carry me through
He's worthy Just the same

Monday Obsessions: Beauty and the Beast

Yup, I saw another musical this past weekend. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney 

classics. The show very upbeat and fun. I decided last minute to go, because they were only here for a 
week, I knew I had to go. Check and see if they're coming to a city near you!

Monday Obsessions: Memphis!

This past Saturday I saw Memphis at the Kennedy Center. I was a little blown by the ending and I 

put it at the bottom of this list of the 6 musicals I've seen.

But...

The last two days I've been humming/singing the songs (at least the words I know:-) and its growing 

on me. I definitely recommend it! The music is lots of fun and overall the story itself is entertaining.

Just a Thought: Blessed

Last night at my church, we had a missionary come and preach at our church. He had a great 

testimony. A long story short, he has been through a lot in his life, but God blessed and spared his 

life multiple times. Now he's going to Singapore to be a missionary. It just made me think of how 

blessed I am. I have a great family. I'm a Christian.  I had a great childhood. I could go on, but his 

message just reminded me of no matter how hard life is, I am still blessed. Just a thought for today, 

remember how blessed you really are compared to the bad things in your life and you will see life 

isn't as bad as you think.

Green + Pink

I've come up with a theme for the wedding: A Romantic Rustic Modern Party.

Hmmm.

I hope that makes sense. I have a lot of ideas in my head, but I must choose only a few I suppose.

Take a look at these pictures (all from The Knot) to see what direction I'm headed.
