Coca Cola 4th of July Weekend

Happy Sunday! What has everyone been up to this Holiday weekend?! Whats up with this rainy weather. I am looking forward to some sunshine tomorrow, hopefully. Despite the rain it overall has been a great weekend so far. Full of family, friends and I had a wedding yesterday that I filmed.

Since it is rainy today headed to do some retail therapy and found a cute handkerchief for Luther Nash that he will wear tomorrow! The only thing that was missing from this shoot was a nice cold coke in a bottle!!

Zara Striped dress

Happy Monday! Who is ready for the 4th! I sure am, nothing I love more than celebrating Independence Day surround by the ones I love. I also am obsessing over the striped dress from Zara!! It is currently sold out, such a bummer! But it is so light weight, and you can dress it up or dress it down! You’ll catch me wearing it this weekend!

Where has this month gone? I am amazed by how fast it is going by! I have some traveling plans coming up this month and in August that will make it go by even faster. I am trying to absorb every moment of this summer I can. But is it bad to say I am a lover of Fall?!  <3

This weekend was so fun but yet so busy! Friday night we went out to dinner with some of our friends to II Lazzarone located near the River Markey. I have been wanting to go to this spot for a while and finally went, it was scrumptious. I love me authentic pizza. Saturday night we went to go watch our friend play Baseball for the T-bones. It was hot and sticky out but I scored a yummy corn dog. I told y’all I was a foodie! We wrapped the weekend up with a lazy Sunday but much needed!

Tonight I have some dinner in the crockpot, a yummy chicken salsa recipe and of course watching the bachelorette tonight! Who else is a sucker for that show?! I got drew to start watching it with me when we started dating and now he is hooked! Have a great night!

Thank you Nomadic Newlyweds for the photos!

Park Place

Happy Hump Day! Yesterday Andrew and I went out to dinner @ the MIXX and hung out with some of our friends. Adjusting to working from home has been putting me in a funk and so getting out and having coffee and meeting with other creatives and of course visiting my nephew blake and sisters has been keeping me sane. Luther turned 4 months old today! Which is so crazy to me, he finally went down the stairs yesterday guys! And then got sick due to us bribing him to go down with treats, poor thing. But hey he now goes down them no problem!! Today I am editing, making calls and preparing some outfits for a session tomorrow with a friend who takes fabulous photos <3 Below is a fun video I put together of Mr. Luther Nash Enjoy!

Donkey Tanqueria

I am such a foodie and I have been eyeing this restaurant for a while now! If you haven’t heard of Donkey Tanqueria well thats okay! Ill tell you all about it. It is located in Grand Rapids, MI off wealthy street. The restaurant has overall a very chill vibe with an indoor and outdoor seating. The inside had a very cool bar area with several spots to sit. We chose to sit out side because it was such beautiful night and we knew we would be there for a while so I wanted to absorb that awesome Michigan air.

We ordered a pitcher of their prickly pear margarita! Which was delicious, I highly recommend it! It was pretty sweet which  I really enjoy so if you don’t like sweet you may want to try something else.

Of course we had to get the queso and guac, my two favorite things to try at mexican restaurants, I give them both a 10!! The queso had a little kick to it which I am a fan of. Emily and I  ordered some tacos which were super yummy also! All in all I really enjoyed the over all atmosphere, food and service! It is a place that I  would recommend to anyone of you in the Grand Rapids area!

On this night I was able to catch up with my friends from the Mitten and it was long overdue. We talked about middle school memories and now what was happening  in our lives currently. I truly believe in surrounding yourself with positive people and creatives that inspire you. I hope you all are having a great week <3
