A Lovely Little Rant

Happy Wednesday!  Thank you for all of the birthday wishes for Brady yesterday - I read every single one of them out loud to him ;)  We had a great day at the dog park swimming, eating dinner straight out of the bag, and a special pup cake covered in peanut butter.  

Today I'm excited to have my favorite Arizonian (is that a word?!) blogger here - Candace from Lovely Little Rants!  I could go on and on about how awesome she is, but check it out for yourself...


Hey guys! I'm Candace and I blog over at Lovely Little Rants. Thank you sooo much to  Katie for letting me take over for the day :)  I blog all about my life in the good ol' state of Arizona. ps if you're from/live here, you feel the struggle of trying to dress decently in 120 degree heat. I love hair and clothes (obviously) and I try my best to figure out makeup so I share all my favorite tips on the regular! 

That's my husband, Jason. It's safe to say I'm kind of obsessed with him so he makes a blog appearance pretty frequently. He's such a good sport to always go along with my shenanigans and to be my blogographer (that's a word, right??) You can learn more about me right over here!

That photo is from our anniversary photo shoot. I had a vision of having pictures eating our year old top tier to celebrate. It was kinda gross but I loved the pictures! Post can be found right here

I've been writting the story of how we met (it's full of the best twist and turns and clearly has a happily ever after, yay! You can find our story over here)

I am always trying to make blog friends and to grow my little space in this big internet world! I've found some ways that I think work best to help grow my blog and reach out to companies! These tips have helped he soooo much and I was excited to share them :) Read my tips on this post and hopefully you find them helpful, too!

I have a day job but I make these pallet signs for a business I like to call Framed. I started it in November of last year and it has been such a fun adventure! Jason is a HUGE help just when I think I'm about to go crazy with orders haha I make them in any sizes, colors, and designs! Check them out here! I am offering all of you lovely readers of this cute blog 15% off any sign you'd like! Just use the code KATIE15 at checkout! 

Just some fun facts:
+3 people told me I look like Reese Witherspoon last week, like um THANK YOU KIND STRANGERS!
+This hair product is my absolute favorite lately. If you haven't heard of it, you are missing out. Better yet, it's SO CHEAP! This page is basically my wish list of all things I want oh so badly.
+I love the Olsen twins. It Takes Two is for sure in my top favorite movies list.
+I have a twin brother. Anddd he is a foot taller than me. How that happened, I have no idea!
+I recently saw Taylor Swift in concert and it was for sure the best night of my life. I'm just saying. You can read about it here if you'd like!

That about sums me up! Thanks again, Katie, for having me!! I'd loveeee to meet you guys, too! Come say hi over on my blog or feel free to internet stalk me over on instagram! (don't worry, I don't judge). Happy Wednesday!!
