A story close to my heart!

In recent months, my brother was in a car accident. He was going home from work, when he was hit on the side from a car turning. He was then thrown from his motorcycle to the ground. He was not hurt too bad, but it caused him to be sent to the hospital with a broken ankle, and some muscle damage, along with his vintage Honda being totaled. With no insurance, it's hard to get back his feet. My brother has set up a go fund me account, if you could spread the word it would mean so much to my family and I. If you could donate anything, that would mean the world to my brother. Since he is out of work, he is unable to afford the post therapy. If you could visit his website you can read more and share! Thank you so much!! http://www.gofundme.com/ericb

I'M BAAAACKKK! {With News}

Well, it's been over 4 months since I have written a blog post, not that I have that many followers dying to read about my life. But recent news has changed things and going back to blogging will help my family keep up with my husband and I. 

(no we're not having a baby)

That's right, us Northerner's who moved to Virginia over a year ago are making a cross country trip to California, Northern California. As much as I am excited to start another chapter in our lives together (Hubby is going to A School, aka training), which means we get to explore California for FOUR MONTHS  (long enough for me & after four months, we hope to be stationed back on the East Coast!), I am terribly upset about leaving our apartment. This is the first place we called Ours, where we had our first Christmas as MR. & MRS, where we hosted our first HOLIDAY and where we made new friends that we will treasure forever.

Our first, second and third Homecoming together <3
  I knew that when marrying my husband that this home would not be our only home, we will make each apartment/ house we move into our HOME, and although we are soon to be leaving this apartment that brought us many, many happy memories, it will always have a place in our hearts as our first home.

Sorry for being MIA..

I have been MIA for the past thirteen days or more! I have not been able to post my Cara box post. But I promise I will as soon as I get back home from vacation with the in laws. 
I have gender reveal pictures I took for my friend to show and a whole week of pictures from spending time camping in Montauk, NY. But for now, I will show you all a recap of my past week! I hope everyone had an awesome fourth of July! And thanks to all the men and women who are deployed, like my husband. ONLY a few more lonely nights!!
Have a good Sunday everyone!

DIY: Bridal Shower Games

My soon-to-be sister-in-law's bridal shower in in a few weeks and since we will be going on vacation with our husband's (soon-to-be husband's) family, I needed to make these bridal shower games asap! 
So, the bridal party decided to do these two games:
Bridal shower Bingo 
He said...She said

I made both of these games in Microsoft Word!
For the HE SAID..SHE SAID, I used text boxes with free downloaded fonts!
And then added the lips and mustache and mason jar pictures to them.
For the Bridal Shower Bingo, I used the square image to make the boxes.
Then added text boxes and the mason jar pictures.
Since the theme is rustic/country we decided on the mason jar theme!

They are very easy to make and once I learn how to allow you guys to download these I will put them on! But, until then you can practice making them on your own! 

Good luck!
And Happy Friday! :)

My first Influenster VOX BOX!

I joined influenster back in April of this year, where I answered surveys and questions about products and wrote reviews about the ones I had already used! I was contacted the end of May to take a survey for the Spring Fling VoxBox, but then was qualified for the something blue voxbox! I later found out that it was for people who were attending weddings this summer. And, as you may know I have already attended one and have another this September! I was so excited, I mean who doesn't love getting free stuff in the mail! 
This is what I got:
Something Blue Vox Box

It contains:

1) Luster NOW! Instant Whitening toothpaste
2) Dr. Scholls for her ball of foot
3) Ever E-Z Eye lashes (2)
4) Precision Q-Tips (2)
5) Critical Care Aspirin to-go

I have only tried two of the products so far.
The toothpaste (which I absolutely LOVE), it has a minty flavor unlike the other whitening tooth paste that I have tried, and you can see a difference in the first brush. And also I have tried the Q-Tips, which I think would be really good if your using liquid eye liner for the upper top on your lid to get in there without smudging, but as for anything else I think a normal Q-Tip would work just as well. I am saving the Eye Lashes for either the bridal shower or my husband's homecoming (you can find the review when I use them). Also, waiting to use the Dr. Scholl's for the wedding day! My feet are going to hurt wearing boots all day in September! Lastly, the aspirin I will let my husband use because I don't really use aspirin much!!

If you ever get a chance go sign up!
 It is so simple and I mean FREE STUFF!!
Come on, get up and go do it! 

The products were sent to me for testing propose by Influenster. 

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!!

Target Tuesday!!! (plus weekend update!)

Whether you are graduating from high school/college, having a bridal shower or baby shower or just plain having a BBQ, Target has the perfect dresses for every occasion!
We all know that summer is the perfect time to wear dresses and it is also the months of weddings and baby showers. Which I have been to one wedding already, I have my soon-to-be sister-in-laws shower in July, my best friends baby shower in September and the brother in law & sister in law's wedding in September too! Just call me busy! 
So, I have put together a few of the dresses that I really adore from Target, and let me tell you it was very difficult to choose just FIVE! I'm really liking the color yellow right now, its the color of the sun, makes everything more summery! 

one - two - three - four - five

These dresses are all flow-y! They are great for the summer heat! Perfect for the student who needs a simple dress that won't make her sweat under near her cap and gown or (like me) the yellow dress is perfect for a country themed bridal shower where I can wear my brown cowboy boots too! Or Maxi dresses are great for the momma's to be, giving enough length and showing off their cute belly bumps! Also, the last dress I love, am in love with it, as you know my hubby is in the coast guard and this would be ABSOLUTELY perfect for his homecoming this summer! 

Which occasion do you have to attend? 
Find your perfect dress at Target! 
I know I will!!

As, for my weekend update and talking about dresses!
My best friend had her wedding reception this past Saturday! 
And it was beautiful out, no rain could have stopped that party! 

blue dress- old navy (old); similar here. white dress- kohl's; here
 I was her matron of honor and I had to give a speech. Let me just tell you have much I am VERY afraid of public speaking! I HATE IT! Like, a lot. But anyway, I pushed through it and gave a ONE page speech! It was cute though and I started the water works. WIN!  :)
Not that it's that hard with her emotional pregnancy hormones!

Bride and Groom's first dance!
Oh how sweet love is! 
And how I wish them many years of love and happiness!!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!! 
I also received two free products when I got home so stay tuned to those post!
