Thankful – A Quick Thanksgiving Post

Happy Thanksgiving! Before we eat our weight in stuffing and praise whoever invented elastic, I wanted to take a moment and reflect on the year so far. If at this time last year you would have told me what I would have accomplished, I would have thought you were joking. Life has done a complete […]

US Road Trip: Oregon // CEO In Progress

US Road Trip Part 1: Oregon

This is a pretty adventurous trip, so I figured I would start breaking this journey up into a few parts so the post about it isn’t a novel. To start though, a quick recap of how we ended up on a plane headed to Portland in the middle of November. My husband is a huge […]

Holiday Bucket List

Can someone please tell me where this year went? I swear I don’t know how it’s already November. This fall went by in such a flash, I want to make sure that we take time to enjoy the holiday season, so I’m making a bucket list to wrap up the year. We have a lot […]

Leland Anniversary Weekend Getaway

This fall has been insane to put it nicely. We finished a huge project we’ve had going on for a year plus, took our first trip out to Arizona, spent a week in Colorado, went on some work trips, and finally just got back celebrating our 1st anniversary to Leland where we got married. I’m […]

Arizona Favorite Photos: Grand Canyon // CEO in Progress

Arizona Favorite Pictures & Itinerary

I still can’t believe how in love we were with Arizona. It was such a stunning state and we were surprised every time we turned the corner to see mountains and weird little cacti. We had 5 days to explore and we definitely used that time wisely. We took the scenic route across the state […]

How to Win Friends & Influence People: Recap & Review

I finally finished my 13th book of the year, How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie. After finishing this book, I get why a lot of college courses use it as required reading. It was one that had been on my Amazon Book Wishlist, but I finally got a chance to make […]

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but we are looking at the last little glimmer of 2017.

Plans, dreams, situations […]

Arizona Packing List: What I’m Bringing For Late Summer Adventures

We are so ready for our next adventure to Arizona. It seems like ages ago we went to Boston with friends, and it is definitely time for a break. Things have been so hectic, it’s good to take time to recharge and relax. I’ve never been to Arizona, so I’m more than excited to visit […]

Getting Involved At Work // CEO in Progress

Getting out of the Bubble: Getting Involved At Work

It’s easy to get used to your normal routine at work. You do your own thing, work with the same people everyday, chat with the people you always chat with. Especially as an introvert, the bubble of your own work is a very comfy and cozy place to be in, but it rarely leaves you […]

Michigan Fall Weekend Getaway Guide

I love this mitten state, there’s so many amazing places to explore all with their own unique feel and attractions. We’ve done most of the state, Alpena, Traverse City, Pictured Rocks, Grand Rapids, Detroit, but still there are a lot of places left on my list that are great for fall getaways. Plus, going at […]
