    Yes! It was a long time ago – I was just going into my sophomore year of high school, and I was there for a band trip (exciting, lol). I hope you watched Young Victoria – it's one of my favorites! And, I did watch North & South a while ago after you recommended it to me – it definitely didn't disappoint!

  2. 5.3.15

    Ryan was in Nashville in high school, but I sadly have never been – we'd like to go when one of our favorite country bands or artists is having a concert so we can tie it all in together!

  3. 5.3.15

    Thanks, girl! Happy Sunday!

  4. 5.3.15

    Yes, absolutely! It's so fun getting to know more about people. 🙂

  5. 5.3.15

    We are hoping to get there are some point – maybe early next year for my birthday. Glad someone else enjoys my favorite shopping spots!

  6. 5.3.15

    Oh my goodness … PORTILLOS! I need it now – luckily, I'm going to my parent's next weekend so I'll get my fix. 🙂

    I didn't know you'd been to Toronto! Putting Young Victoria on my list to watch this weekend, I need a good chick flick after this week. If you haven't already seen North & South I think it would be something you'd like and it's on Netflix!

  8. 4.28.15

    Love this! Mad Men and Nashville for the win! Speaking of Nashville you guys totally have to make it down there, it's a great place to visit! You have so many fun things coming up this year!

  9. 4.28.15

    What a fun post! I always love to get to know bloggers a little better! Have a great week!

    Love this post! So glad to get you know you a little better! I may have to steal this one for myself, giving credit of course 😉

  11. 4.27.15

    Charleston, SC is one of my favorite places ever! You'd love it. Your shopping spots are on point. Those are some of my top choices too!

    Ummm Royals is so addicting and such good trash TV! Glad a I have a fellow fan, we will have to chat about episodes :)!

  13. 4.27.15

    Now I'm craving Portillo's! How great does a hotdog and piece of chocolate cake sound right now?!? And I can't believe Finn is going to be 1 next month… time is flying by!

  14. 4.27.15

    Hey! Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate the Wedding Party love. 🙂 How fun that you're right up in Appleton – we've only been up there once, but we are hoping to get up there in the next few weekends. You have WAY better shopping than we do in FDL. 🙂

  15. 4.27.15

    That's so fun! Ryan has been there a couple times, too – I definitely want to go around the holidays!

  16. 4.27.15

    True – I think I pretty much know everything about you!

  17. 4.27.15

    We are hoping to get there for a long weekend this year or next!

  18. 4.27.15

    Right?! I couldn't agree more!

  19. 4.27.15

    I'm so glad to hear other people are into The Royals – I haven't heard a lot of people talk about it, but I think it's so addicting!

  20. 4.27.15

    Trust me, I know! I hope to go eventually during the holidays.

    First- Just read your Wedding Party article on different bridesmaid styles. Love it! You gave so many cute ideas!
    Second- I definitely didn't realize you lived so close! I'm living it up in Appleton! Pride and Prejudice falls under Movies I've watch a Million times!

  22. 4.27.15

    We are so excited for our PR trip! I actually just finished watching The Royals from last night – it was so good. I'm glad someone else is into it!

  23. 4.27.15

    Thanks, girl! I'm glad you got to experience PR first so I could get all your recommendations. 🙂

  24. 4.27.15

    It's one of my favorites!

  25. 4.27.15

    What a great post prompt!! I had never been to NYC before Mark and that is his favorite city so we go a lot more now! It's so magical around the holidays I definitely recommend!
