Our Las Vegas Wedding.

Hey babes! I know we’ve been married for two months (exactly today!) BUT I’m just now getting around to sharing our special day! I know, I know. -Truth be told I haven’t even printed any photos yet either. Am I a bad bride?! -LOL

Anyway, let me take you back to September 7th 2019. We flew to Las Vegas with 12 of our closest friends and family. I wouldn’t of had it any other way, it was perfect. Our group was small but it was exactly what we wanted. Intimate & relaxed. We chose the El Dorado Dry Lake Bed for our location, which is just outside of Vegas in Boulder.

Believe it or not I found the wedding planner on Instagram! They were the best! Everything was organized and very thought out. They customize everything from the flowers, cake, even what they wear to match the vibe and experience you are imagining. They really removed 95% of the stress because they take care of everything!! I’ll link both Instagram accounts below for you.

Every time I look back on our photos I tell Ryan I want to do it again! Yes, planning a wedding is stressful, and things that don’t matter bother you ( for a second) but when I look back at photos…. it takes me back to that day and the feeling I had. Just pure happiness, tears of joy & gratitude. Ryan and I walked together towards our future. No one gave me away. I wouldn’t of changed that either.

Ok, ok… I’m kinda a short and sweet type so I’ll get to the good stuff now, the PHOTOS!! I put together some of my favorites and I hope you enjoy!!

AHS 1984: Did It Really End Like That?

Hey everyone! Sorry for the delay, traveling and getting side tracked over here! Anyway, lets talk about it! I don’t really know how I’m feeling right now. Last week I said “is 1984 turning in to murder house?” Well – it’s looking that way.

We not only saw Margaret commit more murders, but Montana FINALLY let her true feelings out by attacking Brooke. Of course Brooke was “shocked” again as to why anyone would want to try and kill her ( I’m telling you there is more to her) BUT it seemed as though she had no problem stabbing Montana multiple times!

Also, I kind of feel bad for Ray now. I know, I know, I said he was an awful person, but the poor dude didn’t know he was dead. He also seems to be the only one at the end of the episode to show some compassion towards others & not want to kill them. I guess time will tell with him.

In all honesty I was disappointed with the episode. I wanted Margaret to get hers, and yet again she got away ( for now I hope). Also, we now have a bunch of ghost running around camp – two murders heading back to LA, and Brooke off to jail taking the fall for ALL murders. I wanted to not be right and be a little shocked, anyone else feel that way?

Needless to say, I am going to watch tonight’s episode! -LOL. AHS also has twists and turns so I’m hoping they prove me wrong on some of my predictions!

I always love hearing your thoughts as well! Don’t forget to comment below!

Always –

AHS: Episode 4 – Turning into Murder House?

Hey everyone & welcome back!! It’s Sunday again and I can’t wait to dive into AHS episode 4!! We learned A LOT ( some we already had suspicions of) but it did leave us with a few more questions.

First up – I knew this Night Stalker was Montana’s crazy lover!! We also learned Montana’s brother is the one who spent the night at Brooke’s the night before her wedding! – Connected the dots! However, there is something odd going on here with the Night Stalker. He went up against Mr. Jingles and lost, but then we see him coming back to life! Did Satan resurrect him? Will this season turn into another murder house where everyone dies but not?!

Speaking of people dying and becoming ghost – Where is Jonas? The last time we saw him was with Margaret ( who by the way is the REAL KILLER in 1970!!) and then nothing. I’m curious as to when or what moment he will pop up again.

– Next, lets talk about fake Rita! She is probably the craziest person at the camp. I can see why Margaret snapped, getting picked on & made fun of – all good reasons. But fake Rita…. is she even a student/phycologist?! I’m starting to think she is just obsessed with serial killers. Wait until she figures out it was Margaret all along!

Last but certainly not least, Mr. Jingles. I felt so bad watching him learn that he wasn’t a crazy person! The poor dude. He was made to believe he killed all those kids, to the point where he ACTUALLY murdered people!! I hope he doesn’t get too soft on us. I have a feeling he will play a huge part in saving the current kids and I don’t want to see him not act because of past guilt.

-I’m thinking this weeks episode is going to be even crazier so get your popcorn ready!

As always shoot me a comment if you have any theories yourself and want to chat!

Always,

AHS 1984: Why Kill Brooke?

Hey everyone! It’s Sunday so you know what that means….. AHS review!! I actually look forward to posting about the show every Sunday. It allows me to organize all my thoughts and feelings – LOL.

Now, if you read my post last week I covered A LOT of stuff ( if you follow along, I don’t have to go into detail every week) so today I just want to talk about the following: Is everyone a killer, does Montana know Brooke from the past, and what’s up with nurse Rita?!

I know they say everyone has a past, but it seems as though all of our so called “camp counselors” have baggage! We already know about Xavier’s and last week we learned that Ray is just a bad person. -LOL. I’m sorry, but anyone that thinks driving your unconscious friend over a cliff is the right thing to do so you don’t get in trouble, is an awful person. It’s ultimately why he decided to come to the camp ( to run away) so the police wouldn’t find him.

Ray also leaves his friend Chet (who by the way saved him from the Night stalker) in the trench full of spikes! -Ray didn’t last long though, and somehow I’m not mad about it.

I knew Rita was suspicious last week when her encounter with Mr. Jingles left her with a scratch. BUT OH MY!! Rita is very cleaver. She is the one responsible for Mr. Jingles escaping and managed to fool almost everyone around her. There must be something deeper though. It’s one thing to study psychology, it’s another to release a murder just to see why he kills and encourage him to!

The biggest question I have is why does everyone want to kill Brooke? After watching I now think this “Night Stalker” we keep seeing is not the real one who’s running around LA. I’m thinking he was either hired by Montana ( or her lover) to act as the Night Stalker so they could get Brooke to come to the camp with them. But why? Does Montana know Brooke from her past? Is she somehow connected to Brooke’s dead fiancΓ©?!

I don’t think Brooke is as innocent as we are lead to believe but I need more back story! I’m also curious as to why Margaret has been in her cabin alone this whole time, and has yet to encounter Mr. Jingles?! It’s going to be a long three days!

AHS 1984 – What did we just witness?!

Let me just start off by saying this episode was packed with twists & turns! I loved it! First, we were shown Brooke’s white wedding nightmare. In the first episode when she’s at her apartment ( before the night stalker shows up) we see her glance at a ring in her jewelry box. Now, my first impression was that either she was left at the alter or lost her fiancΓ© tragically, BUT I did not expect a murder suicide!!

However, Brooke’s controlling, obviously crazy ex fiancΓ© tells me she didn’t have a back bone, or voice. Has that changed? I’m not sure yet. It does seem that way, but it will be interesting to see how her character develops with Mr. Jingles and the night stalker wondering around camp. Also, why did she think that was a good time to tell Montana about her past?

Now, lets move on to Margaret. We all know I think she’s the killer or “A” killer ( Might be more than one, not sure) but this lady was really odd this episode! She’s aware that Mr. Jingles has escaped & yet she shuts the power off to the camp?! Don’t get me started on her casual conversation with the Night Stalker. Plus: I’m pretty sure our mystery kid on the roadside said something this episode that you may have missed! Keep reading!

Remember last week when I suspected the kid they accidentally hit on the road might have been a kid that went to the camp, and then potentially may have encountered Margaret and tried leaving? …. Well I was kinda right! -LOL. We learn his name is Jonas, and is totally a ghost! I have to admit, I was a little confused when I saw him jump out in-front of the night stalker, but he said some telling things. First, he said they weren’t supposed to be there, & then he said ” I don’t die here.” WHAT?! Has he just been reliving the same moment for years now? The most telling for me, however, was when he met Margaret & said he saw HER back in 1970 during the massacres! (Did she kill everyone because they were sinners?!) The plot thickens.

The most interesting back story to me that we learned was with Xavier. In the first episode he receives a call that he was obviously upset about. Since we didn’t know anything about him really, as to who was calling him was a mystery. But boy did we learn! Xavier, who is trying to be a real actor has a past in porn, gay porn to be exact & a creepy man we learn is Blake wants him back in his films. ( Plot Twist: Xavier states he’s not gay)

In order to get Blake off his back, Xavier takes him to the camp showers to see a potential “replacement” for him, and less than minutes later SOMEONE kills Blake! Why is this interesting you ask? Well, up until now we’ve witnessed every murder & the killer. This is the only death so far that hasn’t showed us who the killer is. Why?Why tell us about Xavier’s past if you’ve already killed off the only person who knew about it?

Last, but certainly not least let’s talk about our camp nurse. Nurse Rita encountered Mr. Jingles and LIVED! This is highly suspicious to me. Everyone he has come in contact with so far has died, yet Rita escapes almost unscathed? I don’t know about you but I have questions – LOL. Guess we’ll just have to wait until Wednesday!

I hope you enjoyed my thoughts and maybe it got you thinking too! I’d love to hear your ideas as well, comment below!

AHS 1984 Season Premier Review

Hey everyone! – Fall is officially here and that means so are our favorite shows! I decided to add this section to the blog so we can chat and gossip about our theory’s and feelings together! Now, there will be SPOILERS so if you fall behind on episodes DON’T READ any new posts on Sundays!

Now that we’re on the same page, lets chat American Horror Story 1984! I love this show and have watched for many years now, and I gotta say, 1984 is right up my alley! I love 80’s slasher movies, the music, and the fashion, so it’s no surprise that I LOVED the season premier.

If you watched last Wednesday then you know this season is really based on the Jason movies ( you know where the camp counselors don’t watch the kids &…. well you know.) but it also has hints of real 80’s killers/or villains for lack of a better word. – The first episode introduced us to all the characters and their backgrounds, and since it’s based in LA, it’s a collective group of young individuals.

-We’ve also already witnessed a MURDER! That’s right, the strange young man they found on the side of the road was pinned to the back of the door ( classic move by the killer) yet wasn’t there when Brooke got everyone to investigate. NOW, this is what I want to chat about tonight… WHO do we think killed him?!

-Since we were informed that Mr. Jingles broke out of prison we assume right away it was him, HOWEVER, I don’t think so. My theory is that there is more to the story with Margaret and Mr. Jingles, and MARGARET killed the mystery kid! Think about it, he is around the same age as the other camp counselors (did he go up their for a job?) and was terrified when he found out he was at the camp. He also had wounds on him already when they accidentally hit him with their van.

Either way, I can’t wait for this upcoming Wednesday to find out more! Plus, this is AHS…there are always twists and turns!

-Let me know what you think! Leave a comment below!

Fourth Of July!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend filled with great food, good vibes, and nice weather!! – We kept it pretty simple this year, mostly because weΒ  had to work the next day, but it was a great time!

It’s been busy over here with wedding planning & work, but I had to share some of my fourth of July looks! For some reason I wanted to be festive this year -LOL.

0dfac1b7-eabf-48ce-8169-d860d381799f -How cute is this t-shirt dress from The Pink Lily Boutique! If you don’t know about this online boutique I strongly suggest you check it out! So affordable and they have something for every occasion.

I like tying a jacket around my waist to make it more defined, especially since the dress is not tight to the body. This look is super casual, but you could also dress it up. I think that’s what I love about it! Plus it’s only $36 dollars!

-Next up is this two piece amazon find! I wasn’t sure when I purchased it if I was going to like it, but I ended up REALLY liking it! Since I’m short I was concerned about the high waist making me look odd. However, I have seen so many other bloggers (of all body types) with this same bathing suit & it looks great on all of them! It comes in a lot of other colors & its only $25 dollars! – STEAL

I’ve linked below – HOWEVER the blue/white t-shirt dress is sold out so I linked the same dress in a different color!

Swimsuit – here

T-Shirt Dress – here

Our Easter Weekend

– I can’t remember the last time we got together with our family for Easter. It gets so busy with everyone’s schedule that we really don’t mine -LOL. Maybe one day we will either host/ go somewhere for a visit, but until then we are perfectly fine getting away just the two of us. ( & dogs)

Naturally, we went to our favorite place, or my favorite place, Traverse City! Yes, we go there a lot and no we probably will never get sick of it. We decided to go on Saturday which was great because we had awesome weather!

Our first stop was Hop Lot for some drinks & nachos! I swear, their nachos are the best! I’ve posted some photos before of the vibe, and for some reason this time I only managed to take one photo. Oh well, there always next time. πŸ˜‰

img_0390

Of course, Suttons Bay Ciders was on the list as well. If you’re ever in the area I highly recommend you stop in. They have the best view. The cider is good too, but this view on a nice day….. come on.

I will say we spent most of the time in the car on Sunday. – Lol. I didn’t realize that I forgot my purse until we had already been driving for 45 mins. -Oops. Oh well, we made it through.

Side note: We ordered Chinese food for dinner on the way home and when I went in to pick it up the lady felt bad we didn’t have a party to be at. -LOL.

Thanks for hanging out guys!

Always- Tara XOXO
