Everything I’m Doing this December

happy december!!

+ happy first day of blogmas!

I thought Blogmas would be a super fun challenge for me to partake in, so you guys will be able to read a post from me every day in December leading up to Christmas!  And what better way to start it off than a life update?!

Here’s everything I’m doing this December!

+ some life updates in case you missed ’em!

Moved into our new apartment

Yep… you read that right!  

For the past few months, we were living with some friends, but now we’re all on our own!  

Our apartment is small, cute, and super cozy… and we love it so much!  We moved and set up all of our things into our new place in just 2 days, and it looks so amazing!! 

Celebrated 6 months of blogging!

My first ever blog post was published on May 31, 2021… it’s been 6 months since I officially started blogging (although I didn’t share my blog until almost 2 months after that)!  How crazy is that?!  It seems like it’s been so long; so much has happened since then!  

I want to say a big thank you to everyone who’s read any of my posts.  You guys are the coolest. (:


Celebrating Blogmas!

I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I thought it would be FUN to publish a post every day for 25 days in a row… during the busiest time of year.  You can call me a lot of things, but you can’t call me boring. (;

These next few weeks should be tons of fun, so be sure to check back in every day for a new post!

Finishing my first semester at Wartburg

This semester has felt veryyy long but also went by super quick.  

I’m so glad I chose to transfer to Wartburg this year; I’ve had nothing but good experiences!  My classes have been very interesting, and I finally feel like I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing. (:

Celebrating our 6-month wedding anniversary AND our 5-year “anniversary”

December 19th is our 6-month wedding anniversary, and the 17th is our 5-year “anniversary” of the day I texted Nick, which started this whole thing. (;

I’m planning to have him join me for some juicy posts that will be published both of those days, so be on the lookout for those!!

Going to FLORIDA for our honeymoon!!!

We’re finally going on our honeymoon (6 months late)!!  We are both SO excited; we’ve been waiting a long time for this. (; 

We’ll be staying in Sarasota, right on the beach, so we’re really hoping it’s warm enough to get in the water.  Either way, we’ll enjoy the views and the break from single digit temperatures.  

We also have some fun ideas for activities to do while we’re there, but if any of you have suggestions, let us know!! (:

Traveling home to visit family and friends!

At the end of the month, we’ll be flying home to our family and friends in Washington!  We haven’t seen most of them since August, so we’re super glad to be getting the chance to see them over the holidays. (:

We’ll be attending holiday parties, spending some quality time with our favorite people, maybe going to another Seahawks game (this time at home?!?!), and so much more!

Launched a new project with one of my long-time friends!

My friend Madi and I launched a fundraiser for the Healthwell Foundation as part of our new project called Hopeful Healthcare!  We’ll be raising money for a different cause each month, as well as sharing valuable public health information, fun giveaways (stay tuned for that), and so much more!

Check out our Instagram and webpage to learn more and stay up-to-date! (:

Thanks for joining me in celebrating the first day of Blogmas!  I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and I’ll see you tomorrow! (:

Sharing is caring!
