    March Date Night In Box: Throwback

    … Oh yes it’s 80’s night .. cue the music in your head! LOL. Maybe it’s because it took my hubby and I back to our childhood or maybe it’s because we had so much fun during our date night in .. but this month’s theme may just be my absolute favorite! It brought up so many memories from the late 80’s and 90’s for us!! We seriously laughed so much during this date night! We started with eating the Poprocks because um only the best fun candy ever lol. While enjoying them we did the table talk section titled, “Whatchu Talkin’ Bout Willis”. The only question we didn’t know…

    My Honest Review of Kid’s Night In Box: Faith Addition

    Since my hubby and I are going on our 10 year wedding anniversary trip in a couple of days, we thought we’d try Kid’s Night In Box for some quality time before we left. Y’all, it was so cute and fun; I’ll girls loved it. We really enjoyed some quality family time with this box. The only downsize (or you could say upside because we were so focused in the moment!) I didn’t get a lot of photos of it. As with the Date Night In Boxes, there was a fun recipe to go along with the fun. It was a fruit recipe that our kids aren’t a fan of,…

    January’s Faith Night In Box: Foundation of Love

    We had planned on an evening a week ago to have our date night in after the kiddos went to bed. I even made the dinner recommended this time (which was AMAZING!!). However, right after dinner our oldest came down with a fever and wanted nothing but cuddles with momma, so our date night was put on hold. #reallife !! BUT the bonus was that because it was at our house, we could finish it anytime we wanted!! Which that is exactly what we did. This dinner was my favorite menu by far, which is probably the reason why I made it for the whole family! The ground chicken had…

    Mr. & Mrs. Swanson: 12-8-18

    On a beautiful, chilly yet sunny, winter day Courtney and Kyler got married in such a beautiful place. Engelbrecht Farm was where this beautiful couple got engaged, and it was beautifully decorated for Christmas time with twinkling lights and all on their special day. It was exactly what the bride wanted.  There was even a little snow on the ground!! Photographing couples that I have been able to get to know throughout the years is such a blessing, and dare I say a bit more sweeter. I have gotten to know them over the past years. I have done all family photos of the brides, and I did the couple’s…

    Date Night In Box: December Faith Box

    This month’s Date Night In Box was a winter wonderland theme! It was filled with so much fun for our evening in, and I loved that it wasn’t just Christmas themed! With all the craziness of the holidays, it was so nice to just sit down together and reconnect for a couple of hours. This month’s box was the perfect way to do just that. First, I made these adorable treats before he got home. He’s not one to spend time in the kitchen, so I just did them so they were ready for our date night after the kiddos went to bed. They were so cute and adorable and…

    Mr. and Mrs. Jamison: 12-15-18

    On a chilly winter evening in front of their closest family and friends, Dusten and Jenny became Mr. and Mrs. Jamison. It was breathtaking, romantic, and charming. There was laughter .. there were tears – by the bride and groom, the bridal party, and …. by me! As I was snapping the beautiful ceremony I had tears streaming down my cheeks. So emotional, so sweet, so beautiful. From the moment Jenny’s boy’s saw her in her wedding dress, to the giant smile on Dusten’s face when he first saw Jenny, to the joyful tears shed during their own vows, joy and love was evident at every turned. The love these…

    Why I Started Using Plexus Products

    I have ALWAYS had an abundance of energy. My friends have referred to me as the energize bunny on several occasions. When I was pregnant with my two littles I got a natural ‘high’ off of scrubbing floors on my hands and knees … yeah, I was that crazy, energetic lady. So, when my energy dropped drastically after a small bout of depression I was at a loss. I had no idea why I needed a nap every . single . day to make it to the evening. I was so confused. My poor body and the chemicals in them were so out of whack due to my depression. Thankfully I…

    Faith Night In November Box: Give Thanks

    Partnering with Night In Boxes has been so fun for the past few months, and this month was no different! Life has been a bit crazy, but on my birthday we sat down for a couple of hours of fun! AND this box may just be my absolute favorite so far, just for the theme! We were able to go out for my birthday dinner, so we didn’t do the actual meal planned. BUT we saved one activity, homemade ice cream, for our dessert during our date! We were able to enjoy it during our Faith Discussion guide. This is the second month we’ve tried the Faith in Box, and…
