Hey Friends! I wanted to get on here and give you a little life update.  I did one at the beginning of August but SO MUCH has happened since then.  It is crazy how quickly the time goes by and how fast things change.  I might try to do these once a month or every couple of months, depending on how popular they are.  If you follow my Instagram–> you’ve heard some of these changes in real time. 😉

Also, you can now shop my Instagram much easier–> simply go to the Shop My Insta page on the blog.  Click on the picture and all the products are linked/listed! If you follow me on Instagram, download the LiketoKNOW,it app in the App Store.  Then like or screenshot my pictures to ‘shop’ them! Or you can go to the website.

I got engaged!


Dave popped the question during a planned surprise weekend visit from both of our families! They were in town to (supposedly) surprise Dave for his birthday.  However, the joke was on me because Dave knew they were coming the entire time and planned the engagement around that.

How cute are these shirts?? Dave ordered them for our engagement and surprised me with them after!

Our Families Came To Nashville

This was sort of combined with the engagement.  However, until it actually happened, I thought I was surprising Dave for his birthday by inviting both families down to Nashville for the weekend.  Instead, the weekend turned into one big party-celebrating Dave’s birthday, my Mom’s Birthday and our engagement.  It was so nice to have everyone in town, for my parents to see our house and to spend some much needed time with my sisters! This picture was taken at the rooftop bar of the Thompson Hotel, L.A Jackson! If you are in Nashville, you must give this place a visit!
