because when temperatures are floating around 0°, I cannot keep a poker face.

all my face says is “get me out of here”.

ASHLEY @ MARRIED TO THE GAME.

morning or night: morning. breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and nothing is better than a big cup of coffee. plus, when you wake up, you still have the whole day ahead of you!
perfect sunday: I love lazy sundays. my ideal sunday is just laying on the couch watching movies with my fiance all day and then cooking a nice dinner.
I wish I knew how to: speak another language fluently.
favorite way to unwind at the end of the day: drinking a “sleepy time” tea while catching up on episodes of our favorite shows that we missed.
ashley is getting married at the end of june, & she’s been my motivation extra push to get fit for my own wedding.
follow along with her on twitter // instagram // pinterest.

start living your dreams.

I have a “thing” for graphic tees.

they can be dressed up with a blazer + heels. or perfect for daytime with a pair of colored denim.

[J] kept me up until 4AM, working on the fine print of our {TwoCoins} etsy shop [shipping details, return policy, etc]. then proceeded to wake me up at 9AM, slightly redeeming himself with a venti starbucks coffee. & off to fedex we went! to ship our first order! it’s imperative our first customer receives their order before christmas.
