Engagement Picture Preview

I have something so exciting to share with you guys today – we got a preview of our engagement pictures from this past weekend!

I could not be more thrilled. Our photographer, Tessa, is the best!

If you’re in Indiana (or anywhere really – she travels!) and in search of an awesome photographer, check Tessa out. I may be a bit biased since I’ve known her for like 20 years, but seriously, she’s wonderful. She made us feel so comfortable!

I absolutely can’t wait to get all of our pictures back.

Five on Friday 3.4.16

Joining in with April, Christina, Natasha, and Darci for Five on Friday today!

ONE

Since I officially booked our engagement pictures with Tessa (so excited!), it’s time to get serious about a wedding budget. I am typically a spreadsheet type of gal, but this option is just so much prettier…also, a little overwhelming.

TWO

I may be late to this train, but I have absolutely fallen in love with Biscoff cookie spread. Please tell me you’ve tried it. If not, you’re missing out. Although I’d love to just scoop some out and eat it, it’s not nearly as satisfying as using it as a topping. Same cookie taste, more food. I’ve used it on top of protein pancakes, popcorn, and in yogurt. My favorite combo is definitely the yogurt though. Holy goodness, and it’s only 170 calories (5.5f, 17.5c, 12.5p). Perfection.

THREE

On repeat this week: Aloe Blacc. Seriously, check him out. My current favorite is “I Need a Dollar” from his Good Things album. That will probably change tomorrow though. He’s just that good!

FOUR

Pacers

Since March has arrived, I’m beginning to feel the craziness that is March Madness. Personally, I am not a college sports fan. Pacers all the way, baby.

FIVE
I’m still chugging along with IIFYM. Check out this post if you’re wondering what the heck that means. I do catch myself wanting to check the scale every single day because I’m just so excited to see what has changed! I’ve only weighed myself three times since last Friday. That’s not too bad, right? Better than every day. Progress people.I have resisted checking my measurements (except for once – and I only measured my stomach – so it doesn’t count), and I’m going to continue waiting until it’s been two weeks since starting IIFYM per Poppy Locks’ suggestion.

Have a great weekend!

2015

I’m pretty confident in saying that 2015 has been the best year of my life so far.

I got engaged to the best man I could have ever asked for and celebrated six years together.

I started graduate school and completed two semesters.

I ran a 5k.

Shamrock Shuffle

I was a bridesmaid in my best friend’s wedding.

I paid off my undergrad student loan.

I made some amazing new friends.

Grad School Friends

If 2016 is anything like 2015, then I am in for quite a year.

Happy New Year!

Weekend Recap: Wedding Edition

This weekend recap is dedicated to Amy, one of my very best friends in the entire world (and a recent reader 🙂 ). Amy and I have known each other since early elementary school years, but we’ve been friends since about fifth or sixth grade. I had the privilege of watching her get married to her best friend, Mason, on Friday night. It was a beautiful ceremony and location, and Amy looked gorgeous (as always). Along with Toni (in yellow), the three of us make up the Triumvirate. Here are some of the pictures we took after the ceremony!
