Weekend Rewind & How to Make Money Shopping Online

We had such a great weekend spent with so much family, it was really the best. We had Thanksgiving on Thursday, and then Friday and Saturday we baked cookies.

Pat’s family has been doing an annual cookie bake for a long time and they have always so graciously invited me to join them, even knowing my level of baking abilities. This cookie bake was extra special because Anika and Vince got to decorate their own cookies. They did such a great job with grandmas help.

I also might have done a little shopping this weekend. No, I didn’t brave the stores, but I did a lot of shopping online and got a lot of Christmas gifts purchased.  I wanted to share with you how I made money while shopping online this weekend.  

I’m sure you have all seen or heard of the website Ebates by now?I know I have shared it in the past with you here.   It can be kind of deceiving when you first see it like, why would I really get money back just by shopping through this link?  But you guys, I PROMISE it is legit.  I have been using it for a couple years now and my total cash back is $108.36.  In the past I have forgotten to use it,  but thats a lot of money if you really think about it, just for taking one extra click.  

But I found out now, they have this new feature that will help you to never forget to use your Ebates when you are already on a site. All you have to do is download their Cash Back Button after you sign up. It will put the button at the top of your screen and each time you are on a site that is eligible for cash back rewards, you simply click to activate it. So easy! I swear if you don’t use this, your leaving money on the table.  AND they have a new feature where you can link your credit or debit cards through the site and use them IN STORE.  So you can also get cash back if your shopping at a store eligible for cash back. Free money just got so much easier! I haven’t tried this option yet, but you can bet my money saving heart will be.

Happy Halloween | A Different Kind of Fun

Hey guys! I just thought I would share a little snapshot of our weekend. Most of our weekends really aren’t this eventful but it was Halloween weekend so I thought I would share with ya’ll a little bit of what we were up to.  I also like to share these things as a way to look back and remember because let’s face it, life is cray and goes by so fast. That’s what my little blog is here to do for me, be a remembrance of this season we are in.

We got together with our close group of friends on Friday to kick off the weekend. All of my friends have had little girls within the past 2 years and they are all pretty close in age.  So you can just imagine what our get togethers are like.  Anika is the oldest and the youngest is 5 months.  We attempted a picture of each of them in their costumes and surprisingly we were able to get a couple good shots.

img_5519

Anika, ohh my sweet little girl. She is such a strong willed little girl and she’s not even two yet. I can’t imagine what her threenager or teenage years are going to be like.  But I don’t think I would have it any other way. She does still have her sweet moments, but if she has her head set on something, thats that.  We fought for a few days about her not wanting to wear the costume I made for her.  I put my blood, sweat and tears into that Elmo costume and I’ll be darned if she doesn’t wear it, at least for long enough to get a picture.  (ok maybe that was a little dramatic, but I really did enjoy making the costume for her). Thankfully she finally agreed to wear it and ended up liking it.

img_5543-copy

On Saturday we went to visit my sister & brother in law who live about an hour away.  They have the sweetest little boy, Vincent.  I just cant get enough of him and neither can Anika.  They are so cute together, I can just see the trouble they will be getting into when they are older.  And I already know my child will be the instigator, sorry in advance Kayla & Tony.

 

img_5539-copy

Spending Halloween weekend like this makes me think back to what our Halloweens used to look like.  I love Halloween, its one of my favorite holidays next to Thanksgiving and Christmas, because obviously…food.  We dressed up every year and went out to a bar or a party and it was always so much fun. I shared a post a few years a ago about Halloweens past if you want to check out some of those costumes. Our husbands- then boyfriends, really got into it as you can tell.

img_5531

But it got me thinking. Halloween just doesn’t look the same as it used to. We are all married now, and most of us parents.  So there is less time to think of a creative costume, less of a chance to go out and honestly less of a want to to do those things.  This year has probably been my most favorite Halloween weekend in a long time.  This is the first year that Anika really got the idea of trick or treating and seeing her walking up to houses so excited to get candy just melted my heart.  I had so much fun hanging out with our family and friends watching our littles be little that I didn’t even think about what I would or could be doing for Halloween. Maybe its because I was away from my little girl for a few days or I’m just sappy, but I have been feeling like life is going by way to fast and I just want it to slow down.  I want to take it all in as much as I can and be happy in the moment with my little family.

Now, thats not to say that we will never dress up, or never go out again because I’m sure we will and that is still something that I love to do. But for now, I’m perfectly content living through my daughters eyes and showing her what life is all about.  Choosing to be happy and making the most of every day. Sorry for all of the sappiness but thats where I’m at right now.

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween doing whatever makes you happy.

Steamboat Springs | A First Timers Guide

steamboat springs first timers guide

The hubby and I just got back from an amazing short getaway to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It was kind of a last minute trip and I really can’t believe that he was able to get away in the middle of harvest but I’m so grateful that we made the time and took the chance. We were comped a weeks stay at a ski lodge and found some pretty amazing deals on round trip airfare through Frontier. So away we jetted for a few days up in the mountains. Here is a list of some of the things we did and a little guide if your a first timer like us.

Where We Stayed

We had the opportunity to stay at the Legacy Vacation Resort Club in Steamboat Springs Hilltop. To be honest my first impression online wasn’t that great, but it was free so I wasn’t going to complain. When we got there I was very pleasantly surprised. It was very clean, there were tons of great accommodations and the staff was very friendly.  From what I understand they have a few different room options from studios to 1&2 bedroom suites.  We were in a studio and it was really just the right size for us.

img_5447

Where We Ate

I love food, I’m just going to put that out there. So when I’m traveling food is basically my main priority.  Pat and I always joke about how our plans basically depend on when we will eat next and I’m really not sorry about that. All the food we ate while on vacation was A-MA-ZING, not cheap, but totally worth it.  We definite splurged on a lot of meals but totally justified it by the fact that eating out without any distractions of our child flailing around the table and not wanting to sit still doesn’t happen very often, so it totally made sense to us. Here are a few of the places we chowed down.

+ Freshies

So good. The cinnamon rolls were huge and delish. Like I don’t really know how else to describe them but amazing. And Pat is definitely a cinnamon roll con-assure and he loved it.  I also introduced him to a latte.  Don’t ask me how he has made it almost 28 years in life and has never had a latte, but needless to say, he’s now a fan. I got the avocado smash with weeds. Not weed, we were in Colorado, but didn’t partake in any of that kind of activity. It was really good and kept me full until dinner time even after a whole day of hiking.

img_5405

+Back Door Grill

We stopped at a local spot called Back Door Grill for our first dinner. If you are looking for a very local spot with good burgers this is the place to go. I don’t know if it was because we were clearly not locals or the service wasn’t that great, but the service wasn’t that great. We were not told about any of the happy hour specials and a table of locals sat down right next to us and ordered off that menu…so $9.50 for a mixed drink later, were weren’t too impressed. So if you are planning to go here I would definitely ask about the specials if you’re looking to save a few dollars.  I think there was even a coupon that I found later in one of the Steamboat Tourist books. I recommend you pick one of those up at your hotel or wherever you see one because it did save us a few dollars here and there.

+Wynonas 

This place was so cute, and you could definitely tell it was a local favorite spot.  There was a bit of a wait but it was totally worth it.  The food was amazing and the staff was so friendly. Much more reasonable prices for the amount of food you get.

+Ore House at Pine Grove

We loved this place. If you are looking for a steak restaurant I recommend this one. It was your classic supper club steak and seafood restaurant and it did not disappoint. The portions were very plentiful and I recommend getting the house potatoes, so good.  There was a coupon in the tourist guide for 10% off your entree which was nice since it was pretty pricy.  If you plan to go, make a reservation because it gets super busy and chances of getting in without one are pretty slim.

+Johnny B Good’s Diner

I chose to eat breakfast here on our last day because I had read so many great reviews and I’m a sucker for a classic American diner.  It was super cute and the moment you walked in you felt like you were in the 1950’s.  We each got a classic breakfast and because we were able to make it in early it was 1/2 off.  I think their early bird special is from 7-9 so defiantly take advantage of that.

What We Did

+ Hiking

On our first full day we went hiking at Fish Creek Falls just a short drive from downtown Steamboat. It was so beautiful and definitely a challenge hike for beginners like us.  It took us a while to get to the top but it was absolutely beautiful. We kept saying that we couldn’t believe we are in t-shirts right now and there is snow on the ground next to us.  If you are looking for a nice hike with beautiful views check this place out.

img_5446+Horseback Riding

We went horseback riding which was so fun. I have never really been real horseback riding before so I was pumped. Pat has been before and apparently had bad experiences each time with his horse. We did some research and decided to go with Saddleback Ranch.  They one of the more popular ranches in the area but it was just a short 20 minute drive from downtown Steamboat so we decided to use them.  It was so beautiful to ride through the mountains and hills.  I would say that was definitely one of my highlights from the whole trip.  I think Pat would agree as well.

img_5465

+Strawberry Park Hot Springs

We went to a natural hot springs, Strawberry Park, in the afternoon and it was so cool. It’s crazy that something like this exists in the middle of the mountains. There were a few different “pools” or levels and the temperature could change within like 20 degrees between the two. The best way to really describe it was like a dirty hot tub with a sandy floor. I mean it wasn’t like icky dirty that you didn’t want to be in it but it was more like a lake water but better. Its hard to explain but definitely something you have to try if you have the opportunity.

+Fat Tire Bikes

We rented some fat tire bikes and went biking on the trails through town. We attempted to bike up in the mountains but…that didn’t work out as well as we anticipated. Turns out those hills are super steep. And I’m pretty sure there is still some way that people get to the top and then just bike down the mountain.  But none the less it was a fun experience and a good work out.  steamboat springs a first timers guide

So in a nutshell that was our trip. I feel like we crammed a lot of stuff into 4 days but it was really nice to just be together and getaway from all things work and responsibility for a while.  I feel like my daughter grew up so much in just those 4 days so it will probably be a while until we take another trip without her. But I think its always important to keep your marriage fresh and doing a quick getaway like this is a good way to do so if you can.

5 Things I NEEEED

So…I have been wanting to make a post to share with the world some of the things that I think I need or my life might end.  I’m being totally dramatic when I say my life might end, but here’s a list of some things that I would enjoy in my life.  Just a few things that I have been crushing on lately.

I neeeeed this CD and like 30 copies so I can listen to it wherever I go, and have extra to bring along in my friends cars.  I have been listening to this on repeat at work for like the past week #sogood. I particularly love #6 #7  #12 & #15 – actually I really love them all.

urban decay naked palette 3

This eye shadow pallet from Urban Decay is so amazing and I realllllyyyy want one. But its like $52 and I’m a cheapo, and have a wedding to pay for. So I’m seriously saving my pennies to buy this because I want it so bad.  I mean look at all those pretty colors.  After I purchase this, I plan to spend at least 10 hours on Youtube learning how to apply it because I need help when it comes to makeup, but I still love it.

 

If spring ever comes…I need  pair of these Hunter Rain Boots, specifically in graphite gray. Oh and the glossier the better!

Botanical Rose iPhone 5 + 5s Case - INLAY

I not only want this amazing Botanical Rose iPhone case from Rifle Paper Co, but I need it. Its for the safety of my phone.  I spent lots of my dollars on my new iPhone 5s, which I love more than I should so I need to make sure I am properly protecting it.  I think my justification is perfectly reasonable.

Ok last thing, this Kate Spade bag.  I’m pretty much in love with all things KS. And this bag is just amazing. I would probably never spend this much money on a bag, but I can still love it, right?  I have been wanting a cross body bag for a while now and I haven’t purchased one yet, I’m still on the lookout for one that’s reasonably priced.  But so far, this one is in the running.

Ok now you all know a few things that I am totally in love with at this moment. I mean my birthday is coming up in 29 days after all…(hint. hint.)

What are you currently loving and feel like you might “die” if you don’t get? Would any of my picks be on your list?

Have a great weekend and thanks for reading!

5 reasons Engaged Couples Should Take a Marriage Prep Class

Patrick and I just finished up our last marriage preparation class this past weekend.  To be married in our church we are required to take 2, 8 hour classes and meet with a married couple from the congregation.  I think this is probably one of the most important things you can do as an engaged couple to prepare for your wedding. After all, its about the union of two people before God, family and friends and the state.  You are promising to all of those people that you will be true to each other, in sickness and in health, good times and bad, as long as you both live.  I mean, that’s kind of a big deal.  However, today I feel like some people don’t take it as seriously as they should, or are not really prepared for the long road ahead- aka the rest of their life.

Obviously I’m not married yet, so I cant give you any advice or examples from a married persons perspective. But I can give you the perspective of a person who is 125 days away from promising those things to another person in front of the most important people in her life.  With the divorce rate at over 50% in the United States today, I can only hope that people really stop and consider these factors before they say “I Do.” Here are my five reasons I think all engaged couples should take a marriage preparation class while engaged.

One of my favorite quotes on marriage I've ever read. Marriage is a verb. WOW. This post has 5 awesome quotes on marriage...

via

1 ::| Opportunity

Taking a marriage prep class gives you the opportunity to learn more about your significant other.  It brings up topics and questions that you might not have ever discussed or even thought were important things to know about each other. It helps each person share their views on different subjects and topics in a very laid back and focused setting. You don’t really have a way to avoid the questions or leave the room because you are there for the whole day.  It gives you distraction free time to learn and listen to your partner.

2::| Planning

Taking a marriage prep class helps you plan for your future.  For example, do you really know how many children your partner wants to have if any at all? Do you know how you will want to organize your finances? Do you know where you want to settle down and plant roots or do you want to move every 2 years to a new city? Taking these classes gives you an idea of what your partner wants compared to what you want. It helps you plan for your future together so you are on the same page. Obviously I know every couple will not always be on the same page and you can not predict the future, but I think it gives you a leg up on other couples who never even discuss these issues that could arise.

3::| An idea of reality

At the marriage prep classes we took we got to hear from real life couples who have gone through real life marriage issues.  They spoke about how not every day is unicorns and rainbows.  There are definitely going to be hard times, but they helped describe how they overcame those hard times.  A lot of people don’t like to show they are struggling with their marriage and hide their unhappiness.  I think that getting to listen to people who have gone through hard times and persevered is a great thing.  I feel like when you are engaged you are usually on top of the world. You can sometimes get wrapped up in the excitement of planning a wedding and all that comes with the engagement that you don’t actually stop and discuss some really important things.  But hearing from real life couples gives you an idea of the reality that marriage can be.

4::| Communication

Good communication in a relationship is usually a huge factor to its success.  If you are able to communicate properly to your partner your wants, needs, hopes and dreams and they are able to be receptive to them you will probably avert many distresses that others who can not communicate properly run into.  Marriage prep is a great way to communicate certain things with your partner that you might not otherwise have the opportunity or thought to do. It brings up many great topics and real life situations that not everyone can for see when they are engaged. My thought is, why not prevent a stressful or disastrous situation before it occurs if you have the chance?

5::| Don’t repeat history

I think this is the biggest kicker for me. I grew up in a home where my parents divorced when I was 11. I would say that it was extremely difficult on me as a child, but yet it has shaped the person I am today tremendously.  Studies have shown that people with divorced parents are at greater risk for divorce. I will not be part of that statistic.  I feel that my parents divorcing has shown me that divorce is just not an option.  I would never want to go through something like that nor have my future children experience something like that.  I think that marriage prep is a great thing for someone like me, who comes from a home with divorced parents and hasn’t always been raised in an environment of a healthy marriage.  There are so many things things these days that are working against you, why not try to be prepared and ready to defeat them.

So that’s my two cents about marriage preparation. I hope that if you ever take anything away from my blog about wedding planning it is that I strongly recommend taking a class. If not for yourselves, for the sake of your partner and your relationship.  After all the pretty dresses, and decorations and dancing is over …

2014 Word & Goals

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great new years eve and day.  We spent most of the day being lazy, watching football and talking about our goals for 2014.  Something I saw on the Today show and a lot of bloggers do is determine one word for yourself for the year.  The one word that you are going to live by and always have in the back of your mind as you go through life for another year.

do

Do. That is my word for 2014. I am going to do.  I am going to do more projects, do more blogging, do more painting, do more of what I love.  This year I am going to stop thinking that I “can’t do” something and just do it. I am literally going to say I DO and promise my all my love and my whole life to another person.  It’s kind of a scary thing, doing, but this is my year and I’m going to do it.

Source

I’m going to start with this little blog.  I hope to devote more time, write more and share more.  I need to work on stepping out of my comfort zone and sharing this blog with others is definitely out there, however I have such an urge to do so, it’s sort of weird. But this year I’m going to do it.  I’m going to do things that make me feel uncomfortable and things that are unexpected.

Every year I usually say a few resolutions that I have set for myself, but I never actually write them down, and rarely ever follow through with them.  This year I’m going to write them down and reference them often, in hopes that I will stay on track.  Here are a few of my goals and resolutions for 2014.

  • be more organized
  • exercise more & make better food choices
  • keep better track of spending & stick to set budgets
  • pray and meditate more, grow my relationship with god
  • learn how to use my camera in manual mode & take better pictures
  • blog more
  • be more thankful
  • do and learn more about graphic design
  • go to more concerts
  • try new foods
  • learn more about farming
  • take more risks
  • eat out less and cook more
  • have more self-confidence

I could probably go on for days about the things I would like to improve on and goals I would like to reach, but I feel like this is a really good start. I’m feeling really good about having these things written down and I am ready to start working on my self and starting to DO.

How about you? Do you write down your goals and resolutions? I would love to hear what your big goals are for this year. Thanks for reading and I look forward to a great 2014 with you all.

 

 

 

 

Happy Halloweenie!

Happy Halloween my friends! Halloween is one of my fave holidays, third in line after Thanksgiving and Christmas but I definitely have much love for it. I have dressed up every year since I can remember and I have been for the past 7 years trying to get Patrick to do a couples costume with me, but he for some reason would rather do group costumes with his guy friends…boys I tell ya! One year we will dress up together… I hope… is that too much to ask?

Even though the boys do choose to come up with their own group costumes, I have to give them credit they are usually pretty good.  Here are a few pics from our Halloweens past.

2012 Gymnastic team

Last year they dressed up as the Fab Five – 2012 Women’s Olympic Gymnastic Team (Gabby Douglas was running late and missed this pic).  They actually won 1st place in the costume contest at the bar we went to. Its funny…but a bit weird at the same time.

550237_755645395528_933111807_n

My girls and I dressed up as shower loofahs last year!

 village people

In 2011 the boys dressed up as the Village People.

halloween 2010

2010 The boys were Chilean Miners and I a bumble bee. See a trend of current event costumes here from these guys? Oh and I think the less clothes the better might be their motto.

Ohh and here is an oldie but a goodie…all the way back from 06′ (the first year Patrick and I were dating).

halloween2006

Bob the builder maybe? haha and a sexy cop? Yea…I can’t believe my parents let me leave the house looking like that.

Its so fun to look back at past costumes. Will/did you dress up this year? I would love to hear what you were!

 Follow me on Instagram @adashofcoco to see what this years costume will be!

My Dad Was Hip

Did you know,  my Dad was hip? Like way before I came along.

Was your dad hip? Here are some ways to tell…

jean jacket

“Your Dad wore a jean jacket before you did.”

jorts

“Your Dad wore cut of jean shorts “jorts” before you did.”

duckface

“Your Dad made the duck face before you did.”

ba

“Your Dad was B.A. way before you.”

Haha! But in all seriousness, my dad is pretty awesome and I’m thankful that I got a good one.

Happy Fathers Day, Dad!

And to all the other hip dad’s out there.

Guest Bathroom Mood Board

11 days people, 11 DAYS!!! That’s the countdown to my home freedom. If you don’t already know, Patrick and I have a roommate. But not for much longer, only 11 more days and the house is 100% ours.

Patrick bought this house 2 years ago, while I rented an apartment in our home town.  He got a roommate to help with the mortgage payment and to take up some space I guess and its kind of just what you do when your right out of college and don’t want to move back into your parents basement.  However, since I moved in last year, the extra person hanging around has been cramping our style a bit.  Don’t get me wrong, its nice to have the extra money coming in to use as “fun money”, but  there has to be a time that people must move on and let me tell you…that time is NOW. So this is where I do my happy dance. The roomie has found a new place to live and I will have an extra garage stall, bedroom, and bathroom to claim.  And now if I want to walk around or drink my morning coffee in my undies, I can! TMI?

The bathroom that the roomie uses is the main level bathroom just off the kitchen/living room and lets just say its not always the cleanest or decorated to my taste at all. I mean he’s a boy, I didn’t really expect much.  Patrick let him paint his bedroom and bathroom a dark dark gray almost black color.  YIKES ! He has a much more modern style than we do, so that is the first thing to change.  I’m excited that I can actually have our guests use the main level bathroom instead of directing them through our bedroom to use ours .

So I have put together a little mood board of what I want the bathroom to look like. It doesn’t need any major renovations since everything is relatively new, just a little dash of Coco and we are good to go. Here is the mood board I put together to give you an idea of what I’m going for.

Guest Bath Mood Board numbers_overlay

Source List –

  1. The Shower curtain is from World Market. I already purchased it and pulled my wall paint color from it {Glidden – Barely Jade}. I do wish we had a sweet claw foot bathtub like that…but unfortunately not, maybe someday.
  2. Rug is from Overstock.com. I just looked for an image of a white plush rug, not sure where I’m going to purchase one yet.
  3.  I’m obsessed with this herringbone marble tile. I don’t think its something we will do right away, but eventually want to replace the gray linoleum that is there now.
  4. I plan to paint our vanity white and add legs like the one above. I also see some bead board wallpaper in my future…
  5. Replace existing faucet with an ORB fixture
  6. We are going to frame the builder grade mirror that is there now, unless I can find one to replace it.
  7. This light fixture is very similar to the one that is there now, and I do like it, except for the fact that it was installed upside down. What’s up with that?
  8. Making a towel rack out of an old barn board is a must for this space! I saw this adorable idea from Jenn @ My Fabuless Life.

So as you can see I’m going for a very light airy and fresh look. I’m hoping I can transform this space in like record time, because I am hosting my future sisters bridal shower at our house in like 16 days. I’m already stressing just thinking about it, but I live for this stuff!

So what do you think of my bathroom mood board? Any bets on whether or not it can be pulled off by June 2nd?

  Oh and on a totally unrelated note, I have to share with you that I completed my first 5K this past weekend. If you know anything about me, running is just not my thing. I mean I wish I was one of those people who loved it and could do it everyday and get the runners high. But I have just come to terms with the fact that I’m not.  But we did do a fun run called It’s Glow Time, it wasn’t a timed race or anything, just a fun little thing to do with your friends.

180271_10100275171651313_2036184399_n

Here’s team Glow With The Flow. It was a night race and the point was to wear neon colors or things that would glow in a black light. There was music and dancing stops every mile with black lights so your colors would glow.  I had a good time doing it with my friends and crossed it off my bucket list, but like it said…probably not my favorite activity. Plus it was like 40degrees out…burr! (yea that’s me in the hot purple headband)

189444_10100275182903763_940250761_n

I hope you all have a great weekend! We are busy with home projects, softball and a wedding oh and the countdown.

Love

I literally can not describe the emotions and feelings that are running through me.  I am still in shock, by the fact that I am the luckiest.girl.alive. I officially get to spend the rest of my life with the love of my life.  He really is the sweetest, kindest, most gentle hearted person I know.   Not everyone gets to see the sides of him that I do. I am so blessed to have been able to find someone like him to share my thoughts, successes, failures and my everything with.  He is my everything, and he chose me. I thank God everyday for bringing us together.

He proposed in the most perfect way, and it was just so…us. A place where we have so many memories and where I really fell in love with him.  It wasn’t at a sports game, or in front of a crowd of people. Not that there is anything wrong with doing it that way, but it’s just not us.  It was just the two of us, as we are, and ever will be.

I’m so excited to start planning our perfect day and to dream about our forever.  I am truly one of the lucky ones.  I don’t really know what I did to deserve him, but I promise to be the best wife I can, forever, and ever.

Here is picture of the most beautiful ring I have ever seen

Of course we were too excited to get a picture of the two of us last night. But we will get one soon.  I can’t wait to share all my wedding details with you all. It’s truly going to be amazing.

Oh and here is “our song” which happened to be playing during the proposal.

I can’t stop smiling 🙂
