As promised, this year I’m going to be sharing a lot more home features here on the blog. It will especially be a regular thing here on VF once Cole and I move into our first-ever home later this year (eeekkk – can’t wait!), but until then, I’ll be sharing a few peeks at our current space (which we also love and have been renting since we got married!).

A new house isn’t the only thing new that 2017 has in store for us. If you follow me on instagram you’ve probably already met Miss Lady, the chocolate Labrador puppy we chose out of the 12 puppies that our dog Lucky and Marley had to make a forever home with. Today, Miss Lady (who now has her own instagram account she shares with Lucky – follow her here!) and I are tickled to reveal our living room, featuring our AMAZING new carpet (which she will probably enjoy as much as we will) from my friends at FLOR. If you haven’t heard about FLOR yet and you’re in the market for a new rug or carpeting of any size/style for your home, you’re gonna wanna read this!

While the end of the holiday season is always a bit sad (I can’t let go, y’all – the Christmas tree is still up!), the New Year always brings a hopeful sense of new beginnings. Having an NYE anniversary especially makes the new year feel like a milestone, so for our first anniversary and New Year together, Cole and I decided to sit down together and write out our New Year’s resolutions. Today I’m SO excited to partner with my friends at Harvest Snaps to share our New Year’s resolutions with you all and hopefully inspire you to do the same (it’s not too late – Cole and I actually waited a week after NYE to physically write them down!)

Gifting Memories with Shutterfly

“Collect Memories, Not Things.” I think I’ve pinned this quote or some form of it multiple times on Pinterest because I love it so much. As the holiday season approaches and gift giving is on the mind, I always try to think about gifts that carry a bit more meaning, and nothing is more meaningful than a memory shared with friends or family. Today I’m so excited to be teaming up with my friends at Shutterfly to talk about gifting memories.

Click the read more button below to find out why Shutterfly is my go-to when it comes to giving gifts from the heart. Plus, get a sneak peek at me and Cole’s first family Christmas cards!

Splitting The Tab Made Easy

I can picture the all-too-familiar scenario now: the waiter brings the bill and says, “we don’t accept split checks”. Somebody at the table bites the bullet and pays the tab with the promise of getting paid back from 12 college girls, followed by a night of drinking and partying on sixth street. This was my college weekend routine. My group of girl friends were amazing about taking turns on paying the bill, but dishing out $300+ at once was a lot for a college student (and frankly, still is today!) And trying to remember exactly what each girl owed + finding an ATM the following day proved another challenge (and one that wasn’t always successful!)

Lucky for today’s college girl’s and gal pals all over the world, there’s Square Cash – an app that allows you to request or send funds for FREE! Not only is it free, it’s SO easy too. Click on the read more button below to learn about how Square Cash is making splitting the tab easy.

HEALTHY SNACKING IN A SNAP

As you may or may not know, in two months I’ll be running my third half marathon at the happiest place on earth. Since this isn’t my first run-rodeo, I know that a successful race requires training AND healthy eating. While cooking healthy meals for Cole and I at home is easy to do, the one thing that always gets me is snacks. Chips and queso, chips and guacamole, spinach and artichoke dip…you name it! This girl is addicted to salty snacks, which usually come in forms that are all sorts of unhealthy. So you can imagine my excitement to discover Harvest Snaps – a low calorie, high protein snack that makes healthy snaking a snap!

Click through to find out how Harvest Snaps is helping me successfully train for my upcoming marathon and pick up healthier snacking habits in my daily life.
