Hello there! I am so thrilled that you stopped by my little blog! 
My name is Becky, and I love trying new things! I am a registered nurse and work in the cardiac ICU. It can be sad at times, but it is such a fulfilling job!

I am married to the love of my life, who is a nurse as well! We met on June 8th of 2010, and were married the same day 3 years later! We have a chocolate lab named Ollie, who keeps us on our toes!

 I love shopping, pinterest, DIYs and crafts, going to church, and spending time with my little family. I also have a twin sister who is my world, and gets mentioned on the blog frequently :)
My husband more often than not gets recruited to help with my projects and to do list - which seems to never get shorter. But I don't mind! Shopping is one of my absolute favorite things to do, and I love fashion and beauty!
I started this little blog as a time filler, and what was an experiment has now turned into a hobby! Follow along with me and see where life takes us!

Feel free to contact me any time with questions, comments, or collaborations! I always reply back!
