Our Mini Linky Party | Week 99


Good morning!

I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

Adam and I had a wonderful holiday relaxing at home and eating lots of yummy food! In addition to having the holiday off with the hubby, I decided to take the entire week off from creating blog content as well. It's not very often I can get a "vacation" and spent time with Adam, so I opted to save my to-do list for next week instead!

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 98


Happy Saturday!

I am so glad that the weekend is HERE!

This week has been crazy hectic and I am looking forward to the holiday next week, so for now, I am just going to take some time today to hang out and take it easy. This week was jam-packed with lots of fun, festive blog posts filled with tutorials, recipes, ideas, and more! I had such a blast working on all of the new content I shared on the blog since the last link party, and I am looking forward to a temporary break from projects over the course of the next few days.

Slow Cooker French Onion Soup

Last week, Adam found out that he will have the day off on Thanksgiving and I couldn't be more excited!

The holidays are stressful for our family because, more often than not, Adam has a lot of mandatory overtime he is required to work and oftentimes these extra shifts he has to work fall right on a holiday. So when we found out he will have the day off, we were both so elated to know that we would be able to spend time together on Thanksgiving Day!


Since I'll be spending every minute I can with my hubby during the holidays (before work steals him away), I like to utilize my slow cooker so that I can really cut back on the time I spend preparing meals. Today, I'm sharing my go-to, slow cooker french onion soup recipe.
This soup warms me right up and it hits the spot every time I am craving some fall comfort food. Unfortunately for Adam, sometimes it warms his soul up a little bit too much, and then he gets heartburn after eating it (which is why I keep Nexium® 24HR Tablets 42ct around). It's packed with flavor and warms the soul--basically, this soup tastes like fall and I absolutely love it!

This homemade pico de gallo recipe is perfect for any get-together where friends and family come together to enjoy snacks or appetizers! I've been preparing this recipe specifically for tailgating, and I am thinking I will continue making it through the holiday season, too!

Every year I face the same dilemma--we have way too much turkey leftover after Thanksgiving!

You would think I would have learned by now to just opt to cook a smaller bird, but no! Despite all common sense, every single year I bring home the biggest and most beautiful turkey I can get my hands on and then the night of Thankgiving Adam and I stand in the kitchen scratching our heads wondering, "what on Earth are we going to do with all of this turkey meat?"


Today, I'm sharing a bunch of diverse, yummy turkey leftover recipes for you to enjoy after Thanksgiving (and also sharing a lot of different giveaways for you to enter!)

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 97


What a week!

Adam and I have been feeling under the weather almost all of this past week, and this morning I am feeling absolutely drained. 

This was an emotional week and feeling sick/not my best certainly did not help matters. On Wednesday, I had trouble even pulling myself out of bed in the morning. But nonetheless, I did, and I continued to work through feeling terrible and the week continued to drag on. 

Today is going to consist of relaxing and being unplugged from technology for a while. I love social media and I am really passionate about it most days, but after weeks of feeling crappy, I feel as though a day or two without constantly refreshing my Facebook feed will do my body some good.

Date Night Idea | Heart-Shaped Map Tour

Create and go on a heart-shaped map tour of your city for a fun, unique date night idea!


Adam and I fall into the same routine of where we go out on date night. 

Always the same bars, the same restaurants, and the same neighborhoods. We do try to make an effort to go out and explore the city sometimes, but when we are short on time and low on creativity we often revisit the same places for date night. 

Recently, we thought of a fun way to bring a new twist to some of the sorts of places we go for date night most often. One neighborhood we constantly revisit is located in Tempe, and instead of just heading back there and spending our night at one spot we opted to come up with an idea that would send us on an adventure of sorts.
