Stickygram

StickygramI have a new obsession. If you love Instagram as much as I do, you will love¬†Stickygram. Stickygram is a website where you can directly connect with your Instagram account and order perfect little mini picture magnets. Simple, I know… but totally amazing! I decorated my fridge with these babies and I smile every time I see them. Sometimes it’s the little things in life ūüôāinstagramStickygramstickygramstickygram

Under the Sea

tankAs mentioned in this post, I love Sharks. This weekend, while browsing Netflix in bed, I discovered that you can now steam Shark Week!! After watching enough episodes to make BaDing* want to never go in the ocean again, I decided we should get up and go see some real life sharks. There are a bunch of aquariums around, but my favorite one is too far away. We settled for a smaller aquarium that is closer to us, and here are some of my favorite parts:

Ruben finally got me away from the glass and to sit down at a reasonable distance, but after not nearly enough time, a class of about 50 children came in. It was ways too loud and crowded to stay. Maybe I should book an excursion to swim with the sharks for my next vacation. What do you think Krystle?

Cookie Dough Cupcakes

CDCCookie dough and cupcakes are two things that I absolutely love eating. When I found this recipe, I knew it was going to be my next baking project. These cupcakes are awesome, but they aren’t what I would call a quick fix, they take a little time. Luckily you will have some cookie dough to hold you over while you are waiting for cupcakes to be completed. Throw in a movie and make these on the side and you won’t regret it… they were worth the effort.¬†cookiescupcakescupcakescupcakesCupcakecookiecupcakes

Engagement Drinks

EPA few weeks back my friends threw¬†BaDing and I a mini engagement celebration. It wasn’t exactly an engagement party, just drinks with our closest friends. We started out the night at my best friends apartment where they made us all dinner and we drank lots of wine. After we stuffed ourselves with delicious eats we headed out to The Ainsworth¬†which was the perfect location – not to fancy, not to laid back, just right! ¬†We had an amazing night and drank the night away, chatting with friends, laughing uncontrollably, and¬†dancing until our feet wanted to fall off. A perfect evening, and we’re so excited for the things to come. ‚̧

I didn’t bring my camera out that night so these are all compliments of my friends.

One Year

MMIPA year ago today I started Meet Me in Paradise. My own little slice of the Internet pie. I originally started this blog to regain some creativity in my life, but what I have gotten out of it has been so much more than that. I have met and made connections with people from around the world and back, I have the perfect way to look back on the past year of my life that has been documented here, and I have remembered to do one of the most important things in life, to cherish the little things. Thank you all for reading and letting me share my life with you!
