Good morning friend!!
The first part of the week has been fantastic. Now if only the rest of the trip could slow down a little that would be wonderful.
Here are a few photos of our trip so far!

 So basically I've spent every day at the beach. You all know I'm a totally beach bum. Except Florida beach is way hotter than Hawaii Beach days obviously. It just makes me miss Hawaii even more.

We celebrated my brothers 17th birthday. That was fun. Mom gave him the gift of washing his cell phone. He left his phone in the pocket of his shorts. Never a good idea bubs. 

We went to see J&J play. That was a blast as always. Those guys are the best entertainment. Swear by it. So, the random photo of me & Alyssa with the random guy,....I have to explain. This guy was hilarious. No one was dancing at the show. And finally due to a bet lost with his friend, Colton busted a move right in front of the stage and it totally got every one up and on their feet. Everyone danced the rest of the night away! Alyssa was laughing so SO hard. So after the show we had to get a picture with him just because he made us laugh so hard.

Anyway, unfortunately we only have two more days here. Todays weather is looking
 T E R R I B L E.
and I'm hoping tomorrow I get to see my sweet friends Whitney, Michael and their cutie pie daughter Charlee Bea. 
I absolutely love summer time. The memories made during the summer are always the ones I seem to hold onto so much. I have so many MANY memories here on this exact beach and I'm so thankful for all of the years that I have been able to make these great memories here. 
So here's to many many more years of memory making right here <3

Bye now. Hope you enjoyed my photos.

Weekend Travels: Nashville


Is anyone excited that its Monday?!
Yeah I'm not really either. Weekends are just too much fun, huh?
This week is going to be an insanely busy week for me and I am so happy because SUNDAY I head to 
with my family for a week!!
I cannot wait. It's always such a fun time. 

This past weekend, I went to Nashville with my friends Chris & Melissa...AKA CHRISTMAS & MEL B. I'm sure you've heard me mention them before. We are constantly together on the weekends. These two fools keep me laughing constantly and I am so Thankful to call them friends and I am even more thankful to be back in the same city with them!

So, neither Mel B nor Christmas had ever really been to Nashville. So we left on Friday morning and stayed the night and then adventured around a little bit on Saturday before heading back. 

Here are a few photos from our fun time!

To sum it up really quickly, we visited the Downtown Area {craziness going on because of the CMA fest} and also East Nashville. We drove around Brentwood, TN for what seemed like two hours all by accident. 

The car ride home was fun. Full of talking, sleeping, and singing. 
It's impossible not to have fun with these two. We've already started planning our next trip and we are thinking about doing this once a month!!

Thank for reading and I hope you all have an awesome Monday.

Bye now

Inspiration Collection

Hi friends!!! 
I'm so glad its the middle of the week.
My friends and I need to conquer just two more work days and then we are off to 
So pumped. We will be there all day Friday, stay Friday night, and then come back on Saturday at some point. 

So this week I've been focusing on keeping my artist vision on 24/7. Which isn't difficult because in all honesty it usually is on. I do see most things completely different from your "Average Joe" but I'm okay with it. I completely 100% embrace it.  So I've been feeling a little uninspired lately. So, this week I've been really focusing on things that spark some sort of curiosity in my brain. So I thought I would share with you!!!

A blog I just came across. I am constantly reading blogs. I love them...you all should know this by now. If I didn't love them, I wouldn't have my own.  Speaking of, I would love to know my readers opinions on what you would like to see here on ibB. I know I have a large range of lifestyle things I ramble about here, But I would love to know what you love seeing.


This is an online reading & publishing company. It has thousands of online magazines that you can read for inspiration, or look at the images for inspiration. Its really just a cool site!!
I would just love to know what Frida and Dahli think of theses portraits of themselves turned into 21st Century Hipsters. I don't know how I feel about this....
Watercolors by Jaqueline Maldonado!! Check out all of her colorful work on Society6. 
I am always looking for fellow artist to love!! Her work is stunning. If you know me, you know that I am NOT a fan of colors. I know its strange that my degree is in painting, yet I don't like colors. I t isn't that I just like HATE them and cant deal with them. It's just that I prefer black, white and grey...especially GREY! So most artists I assume love color and I love self expression through art, so I do love color at some level, maybe?!?!

Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed a glimpse into things that are inspiring me this week! 
What's been inspiring you?? Please share away!!

Bye now

Happy Birthday to my Awesome Sweet Dad!!!
Seriously....How adorable is he!?!?! 

 They say that a lady will always marry a man like her father. I honestly and wholeheartedly am so thankful that I am forced to have extremely high standards for what I look for in a soul mate and all of this is due to my dad's example of what a father and husband truly should be. 

My dad is the hardest worker I have ever met in my life. He is the most considerate, kindest, loving, and the list could go on for days. I don't know a soul that doesn't just love my dad. Anyway, I just wanted to brag on him for a second because he really is GOLD. Sometimes when that's all you've ever known it can be easy to let it slip your mind how truly blessed you are. I am so SO thankful that I get to call this man my dad. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! You're the best...ever and I love you bunches.

bye now
