These songs have been playing in my head all week, especially the Taylor Swift one... I've even caught Scott singing it! 

1. Shake It Off - Taylor Swift (I may also be mildly obsessed with the music video!)
2. Stolen Chance - Milky Chance
3. The Galway Girl - Steve Earle
4. Snap Out Of It - Arctic Monkeys
5. Just One Drink - Jack White

Albus Mac

Al is the littlest one in the family and also the messiest. He likes shoes about as much as I do, except he prefers to eat them and I prefer to wear them. He loves to hide in the bathtub and would prefer to sleep on the coffee table if we'd let him. He's the funniest guy around and makes our family feel complete...even Fender agrees.

He's been asking for a wand, but Yoda will have to do for now.

Fender Nox

Meet Fender, he is the most handsome pup I've ever seen. He likes leaves more than squirrels and could play with a shadow for hours on end. He loves to snuggle and sleeps with his head on a pillow in the exact middle of the bed. He is a crazy little guy and we love him so much!

Also, those puppy dog eyes are his specialty.

Fall Is In The Air

Fall is my favorite time of year, and even though technically it is still summer, I can't help but get excited. I love the chilly breeze, apple cider, colorful leaves and pumpkin flavored everything. I also have an obsession with boots and scarves, so the cooler weather really agrees with my wardrobe. I've decided to make a bucket list of sorts for this fall. We know next to nothing about our town, literally I know how to get to work and how to get to Target, and that's about it. So it'd be a lot of fun to find some new places, not to mention driving around here is just about the prettiest thing ever with all of the trees and rolling hills (or maybe they're mountains, I'm not sure)

1. Go to the cider mill
2. A crunchy leaf walk with the pups
3. Lots of pumpkin and apple flavored drinks and sweets
4. Decorate pumpkins
5. Get some new tall boots
6. Cook some autumn meals
7. Eat a lot of Halloween candy (somehow I don't think that will be difficult)
8. Dye my hair darker
9. Do at least one of my pinned fall projects
10. Get cute costumes for the pups

This BuzzFeed article is spot on, considering almost my entire list is on there. And I agree, my favorite color is October.

You're Golden

Our first anniversary has come and gone but I still have a few more posts to do on our wedding. It's been a year since then, but I am still obsessed with how pretty it was and how much I really ended up loving all of the little details.

One of the DIY projects that I had my heart set on were gold animal place card holders. I searched around and found lots of tutorials and ideas on how to make them. We took a few tips and tricks from different tutorials and did what worked best for us. We bought the animals at a local party store and then cut them all in half. Then we painted them with craft paint by hand... I wouldn't recommend painting them by hand, it took us F-O-R-E-V-E-R! Once it started getting a little too close for comfort to our wedding date and they still weren't done we enlisted the help of our friends, they were awesome.

After they were painted we glued mini magnets on the each side, so they would be able to hold our guests' place cards . Our wedding coordinator then placed an animal with the place card at each of our guests' seats. It all looked so magical and enchanting, if I do say so myself!

We made sure to save some for ourselves so we could use them as magnets at home. My brother and sister also may have gotten a few extra at our wedding, so they had enough of them to make an appearance at last years Thanksgiving dinner.

This was our invite, my friend Molly painted the picture and she did such a great job. I love little Fender! (check our her blog!)

So Far

We've been here for a little over two weeks and things are finally starting to settle down and feel like normal again. While we still have a bit to unpack our main living areas are all set and I can finally cook dinners again. Along with unpacking and starting our new jobs we also had a lot of celebrating to do. Scott's birthday was our first weekend here and our ONE year anniversary was the next! We ventured out to some new restaurants for both occasions and they turned out to be hits. Hopefully, PA will start feeling like our new home soon, I think the holidays will definitely help with the warm and cozy feeling. And now for a picture overload! Some of them are a little fuzzy, I still have to unpack the camera charger.

Saying goodbye to our home was so hard. It really was the best, little home I could have asked for. It was also really hard to take a good selfie with our house in the background, after the fifth try we said good enough and hit the road.

The pups definitely loved hotel living!

A very happy birthday filled with Sheetz breakfast, cute pups and the BEST chicken wings ever.

We found Michigan beer! Now, if we could only find some McClure's pickles.

His favorite spot in the new apartment. I left it empty for as long as possible but it soon got filled with kitchen gadgets... Sorry Al!

He ordered a salad at dinner. A salad with kale, roasted carrots, beets and wheat berries. Where has my husband gone!?

The best fondue ever!

We spent our actual anniversary at a food truck festival. It started pouring about half an hour after we got there, so we ate some pork fritters under a truck awning... romance at its finest.
