Hi loves! I’m back with more life updates for you! Because as promised there have been a lot in such a short amount of time!

So last I left you with my birthday update, a few short days later it was time for the new years! Yes, I know I am a little late as we are almost a week into the new year, but life has been go go go for me lately.

First exciting news?

I got a new car!

The car shopping process is not fun, I don’t care what anyone tells you, but when I finally found the car I wanted I was lucky to enough to have a smooth buying experience.

I ended up getting a 2014 Honda Accord  SE. And I love it.

I had such an emotional connection with my old car since it was my grandma’s, but the car never felt like it was mine.  After driving my new car for just a day, it already felt so much more like my car then my old car ever did.  So as sad as it was to lose that car for the emotional connection (and the fact that I didn’t have  a car payment) I am very excited for my car. And she is beautiful.

We kind of celebrated my new car in combination with New Years Eve. We typically don’t go out, but since we seemed to have a little more to celebrate we decided to get a little fancy for dinner.

 Please excuse the non smiling face, but I just had to document the fact that I wasn’t going out in just a hoodie. I actually put real clothes on and felt a little pretty. Matt and I enjoyed a nice dinner and went downtown to celebrate the new year. Well, I didn’t quite make it to midnight. Guess my age is showing, I couldn’t keep up with the young kids and got a little too intoxicated a little too quick. We ended up going home around 10:30, but did manage to stay awake to watch the ball drop. And then immediately went to bed.

First change of the new year?

My hair!

This will probably be my last chance to go a little crazy with the color before the wedding so I took advantage of it.

I wanted a lavender color, but since purple fades pretty quickly, she made it a bit brighter and told me it would quickly fade to the color I wanted. But I am loving it!

Loving it so much I can’t help but take a lot of selfies.

But not just any selfies – selfies with amazing new foodie finds.

Have you guys heard of Eat Me Guilt Free? If not you need to go check them out. I discovered them when I was doing my gluten free elimination diet and fell in love. Their brownies and blondies are delicious – a perfect late night snack. I quickly became obsessed and ate them probably every night… until I ran out. That was a sad day.

But not before I took sassy selfies.

And the brownie warmed up and then topped with ice cream and coconut butter?

Don’t get me started.

I really wish I had more of these.

Other then that, things have started to settle down here. Now that all the holiday’s have passed I can start nailing down the rest of this wedding planning.  I think the holiday’s kind of took my mind off the stress of the wedding, but I am hoping that I will get everything done on time and not have a wedding melt down.

Here’s hoping.
