Four months later....

Why hello there old friends.

This post is not about anything much other than apologizing for my absence.

I started a new job, then life just seemed to happen, then my sister and I decided to start a blog together and co-write on it. However, that's turning into a much longer process than anticipated (but still happening - updates to follow). Then the holiday's rolled around.

If you've been with me long enough you would know that my family is living in Florida, which is amazing for me since I get to visit and escape Minnesnowta.

So other than working and spending time with family I honestly haven't done much for mentioning other than probably the Jingle Ball concert in MPLS. Check out my instagram for some pics and video's if you so choose.

For Christmas I came down to Florida and have been here a week but unfortunately leave tomorrow. It's been amazing seeing my family, we always have the best time when we're together.

There's a sign on my parents lanai that says "If you met my family you'd understand."

I think that's pretty accurate for our bunch.

So from here on out I promise to be better about posting - NO MORE EXCUSES! :)

It'll be a new years resolution of sorts. Weeee!

So that's it for this post. Here's a picture of the beach and my parents new puppy Gibson to tide you over till next time :)

M.I.A. ♥♥♥

Sorry I've been so absent lately. My life has been awesomely crazy! Because....

I'm engaged!! :)

Yaaaaaaaay I'm so excited to spend the rest of my life with the most perfect guy I could possibly think of. He treats me like a princess and is the most genuine and kind person I've ever met.

We met almost 3 years ago and have been together ever since. Awww :)

The weekend started with me and Mitch meandering through Wisconsin and stopping at a waterfall, a cheese factory, a winery, and an old school ice cream shop before finally ended up in the Lakewoods Resort for just a night.

The next day we packed up and wandered a little more up to Bayfield to meet up with his family. We got there before them so we grabbed lunch and bought books and old fashioned candy and fresh sunflowers.

Once the family caught up we took the fairy over to Madeline Island where they were renting an amazing house for the weekend. The rest was filled with family and the beach and a proposal.

Here are some pictures from the best weekend of my life

So now starts planning and excitement and everything else that comes along with this.

DIY Rose Water Facial

Here's a fun one for you all that I found trolling around the internet the other day.

Rose water facials are a great way to soften and tone your skin. You can make it a treat or a regular part of your beauty routine.

Here's what you do:

1) Get a dozen roses (preferably red or pink) and take all of the petals off. Here's the correct way:

2) Rinse the rose petals real good

3) Put the petals in a big 'ol pot and put enough water in it just to cover the petals

4) Simmer the petals for about 20 minutes and then scoop out the petals

5) Transfer the rose water to ice cube trays and put in the freezer!

When you're done you have a quick and easy way to spruce up your beauty routine. Just rub an ice cube on your face and feel refreshed!

If you feel like it you can save one of the roses, give it to someone you love.
