Blogging: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly


Wanted to write this post because lately I've been feeling a little bit down.  I recently shared my blogging plan and have been proud of myself for really sticking to it the past few weeks!  The bad news is that I feel like despite my increase in content, my page views just aren't what I thought they'd be and my Instagram follower number isn't where I want it to be.  That being said, let's get into the dirty deets.

Finally a fashion post!  It's been so crazy lately I've been sporting paint splattered shorts and free college t-shirts most of the time working on our house so my outfits haven't exactly been picture worthy #reallife

Wedding Q&A


I wanted to make this Wedding Wednesday a little less about me and a little more about Y-O-U!  I asked you on Instagram and Facebook what kind of wedding questions you had and now I'm going to answer them!  I'm not a certified wedding guru by any means but I had a completely DIY wedding (as in no wedding planner, every single thing was figured out/done/styled by me, my mom, and my fiancĂ©) so I know at least a little.  Hope these answers can help at least one person, then I know I did my job :)
