What I’ve Learned Since Moving In With My Boyfriend

Hi guys! In case you missed it, Parker (my boyfriend) moved in with me last month! At this point, he’s all settled in, but now that my spare bedroom is our office/gym/guest bedroom, we still have lots to do on that room. I wanted to do a blog post about moving in with your boyfriend because honestly there aren’t a lot of resources out there when I was looking for tips and guidance before he moved in. For example, places like Buzzfeed and Cosmo have articles…

It was my goal to finish a low-cost owner’s suite bathroom update by the end of quarantine! I knew I wanted to replace the entire vanity and add…

Life Update: I Bought A Condo!!!

Life update – I bought a condo!!!!! AND I’m mostly moved in and settled at this point, so it feels sooooo good to be “home.” My roommate and I moved in Friday, January 24th with the help of Muscular Moving Men and we didn’t have to move a freakin’ FINGER. I worked with other movers in the past who didn’t properly wrap our furniture and who weren’t careful and caused damages to our walls when moving furniture. These guys, on the other hand, disassembled large furniture…

Bringing Home A New Puppy: Tips & Checklist

Hi friends! I can’t believe I haven’t done a blog post about Jojo yet!!!! Omg!
