Today marks a year since I posted my first blog post!

I seriously cannot believe this first year of blogging has come and gone. 

In the last year, so much has changed. A year ago today, Logan and I had been in Oklahoma for about a month. I was still looking for a job and boring myself out of my mind, spending days on the couch! Since then, we have moved back across the country, survived Ranger School, added a kitty to our family, been on a ton of day trips, and enjoyed our life. I am so thankful to have this blog to look back on those memories. Even more so, I am thankful all of you have been here along the way to enjoy the journey with us!

I wish I could write this post and tell you how my page views are unbelievable and the number of followers I have are out of this world. And that people are always offering me free thing, just so I will write a review on it,  because I have so many followers. But the truth is, none of this is even close to true. In fact, I  am pretty sure the only people who read my blog are people who directly know.
But, by blogging,  I have documented some of Logan and my first year of marriage, our first year of our Army journey, and what day to day life has been like. I have forced myself to try a new recipe for the sake of a blog post, when really, all I wanted to do was sit on the couch. Also through blogging, I have decided it is way cooler to DIY as much as possible and save money rather than buy crazy expensive clothing. I think it is save to say, this blog has really pushed me to grow as a person, and decide what I like, and who I really want to be! 

It has been a great year! Lets make our next year just as great!


hopes & plans

Here it is, already Tuesday... again.... That means it is time to take a look at last weeks hopes and plans, and set some goals for this week!

Last week I was surprisingly productive. So excuse me while I brag on myself for a minute.

one || Get my recipes and DIY page updated. Done, this was surprisingly fast! I seriously thought I had shared more recipes than three. And well... apparently I have not shared any DIY projects. Ops...

two || Start planning my fall shopping plans. I am still deciding on how exactly I plan to tackle this fall shopping, but I atleast have some looks picked out.

three || Sew up some dresses. Done. Remind me again why I waited so long to do this.

four || Do the same with a pillow. Finished this one too. You know it needs to be done when your husband says something about it...Ops...

five || Create my bills notebook. The bills notebook is in it's beginning stages, but none the less, we have progress!
This week, I am hoping to accomplish... 

one || Clean the pillows on our bed. Rucker does a great job keeping those dirty for me!

two || Clean our house. And I mean really clean it, like clean the baseboards and wash the curtains kinda clean.

three ||  Try to make it through the week without exploding with excitement! That's right, it's Football time in Tennessee and that's where I will be this weekend!

Have a great week!


Weekly Bible Verse

Bible Verse on Canvas, Christian Art, Rustic Vintage Style, Bible Verse Wall Decor, Joshua 1:9
I love this verse! I love that it reminds us that no matter what, God is with us. We never have to worry, never have to be afraid, nor discouraged. God will always be with us wherever we go. Maybe that's the thing, sometimes we need to stop trying to guide our lives, and let God guide us where he wants us to go. 

Where will you let God lead you this week?
