Have you ever had a plant-based burger? Up until recently, I had never had one, but I had heard so many great things about them. I knew I had to try one, so this past week I cooked up the new Awesome Burger from Sweet Earth Foods. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when cooking the burger, but the process was super easy – I just took the patty out of the package and seared it in a non-stick pan on the stove. Once it was done cooking, I placed it on my favorite brioche bun and added some ketchup, mustard and a sliced pickle.Read More
This month my husband and I are celebrating our third wedding anniversary! With every year that goes by, we talk about having kids and when we’d like to expand our family. We both want to wait a few more years until we welcome a baby so we can do things like buy a new house, travel and spend time together as just the two of us. While it would be great to conceive and have kids naturally down the road, we know that it’s important for us to explore our options and ensure that welcoming children is something that we’ll be able to do in the future. One of the options that we’re considering is egg freezing.Read More
Is it just me, or is this summer flying by? It feels like Memorial Day was just yesterday, yet we’ve already celebrated the 4th of July. Every year and every season seems to pass in the blink of an eye. Speaking of seasons, summertime in Michigan is by far my favorite. There are so many cool places to go and things to see. The weather this summer has been great – 70- and 80-degree days with plenty of sunshine. Warm weather is definitely a welcome sight after the harsh, cold winters we experience in the Mitten State.
A few weeks back over the 4th of July, Mazda was kind enough to let me take their Mazda3 Sedan for a spin! I currently drive an SUV, so getting behind the wheel of a sedan was a weird feeling at first, but it was something that I got used to quickly.Read More
How do you know when you’re ready to have a baby? From what I’ve heard, no one is really ready for parenthood. It’s just something that you fully embrace when the time is right. Seeing my friends start families of their own has been so eye-opening and it’s been great to see the way that they care for and interact with their children. My husband, Kyle, and I have talked about having kids and starting a family of our own one day. Before getting married, we discussed our plans for the future and when children might fit into the picture and we both agreed that we wanted to be married for a few years and enjoy being newlyweds before welcoming a baby.Read More
As a young millennial, I have a lot of things going on in my life. Between my full-time job, blogging, traveling, spending time with family and friends and just general hobbies, I’m always on the go. Since I’m awfully busy, I have to carve out time to spend on tasks like paying bills and sorting out my finances. I like to set aside time every few weeks to go over anything and everything related to banking. I have found that being intentional with my finances has made such a difference, especially after entering “adulthood.”Read More

One of the coolest things about being an adult is being able to work in a field you're passionate about and earn a living doing what you excel in or what you enjoy. When I'm not blogging, I'm working full-time at my day job. I'm lucky to have a job that I love and to work with people that inspire me and motivate me. I've learned a lot after working in my industry for five years and I know that I still have a lot to learn. I'm excited to see where my career takes me and I can't wait to continue growing and developing my skill set.
Since I'm used to being in an office setting, I've learned how to make the most of each week and ensure that I stay organized and on top of everything on my plate. Writing things down and recharging by taking small breaks throughout the day definitely helps me to stay focused. I challenge you to try these seven things this week at work and see if they make a difference in your productiveness and the overall way you feel.Read More
Every generation is different, but there’s just something about millennials, right? GEN Y is the largest living generation and they’re making a splash across a variety of mediums.

GEN Y has embraced everything about connecting with people online and using their platforms as a way to share everything from their favorite products to what they’ve been up to in their daily lives.Read More
