I see Russia....

This month we took a trip of a lifetime. Every year Dan's company does a sales incentive trip and this year it was a Baltic cruise. The cruise was 5 days, but we decided to go early and stay later. We spent 2 days in Copenhagen before heading out on the cruise. From Copenhagen we went to Estonia, Russia, Finland and ended in Sweden where we spent 2 days before heading home.

This trip was AMAZING to say the least. We had so much fun with everyone we were with and laughed the entire trip. Dan and I love to travel and this trip was one of the best. We tried to eat the local food in each place. In Sweden a delicacy is reindeer. So yes, I ate reindeer...and no, Santa Clause didn't serve it. The reindeer was actually really good. I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of it, but it just looked like beef.

One of our favorite things we did was a bike tour in Copenhagen. The tour lasted about 3 hours and went all over Copenhagen. It was nice to see the entire city in a short period of time. We also went to Tivoli Gardens, which was a theme park that was Walt Disney's inspired for Disney World.

The boat was awesome. We had a decent size room with a balcony. The food was fantastic and had anything we wanted. I always take work out clothes when we travel and hardly ever work out but managed in one (I know it's not that impressive, but better than normal!) work out on the boat. The gym was at the front of the boat and the treadmills overlooked the water....beautiful!

There is so much I can say about the trip but I don't want to bore anyone. It was awesome, amazing, beautiful, educational, FUN...I could go on and on. The pictures tell it all. I'm grateful that Dan works so hard so we get to go on these great trips! Thanks, babe! :)

Now another week begins, but it will be a good one because next weekend is a 3 day weekend!

Has it really been 3 years?!

Yesterday Dan and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary! I can't believe we have been married for 3 years already! It seems like yesterday that all of our friends and family surrounded us for our wedding day. I think one of the best things about being married is that I have a permanent date. We are a perfect match and I can't imagine life without him. Dan is my rock and supports me in whatever I do and I love him so much for that.

Dan, thank you for making me the happiest girl alive! I look forward to spending the next 60+ years with you!!

Pickled Lily!

My friend Sarah and I have been working on a new project for over 6 months and we are so excited that Pickled Lily is live!! We have created an online boutique for maternity and baby clothes. We have spent months searching for the perfect brands to carry that are also affordable. We want women to love the clothes they are in when they are pregnant and feel beautiful and not break the bank! So far we have a lot of the basics and are adding new products weekly. I'm really excited for some of the Fall items we are getting in.

Check it out and let me know what you think! Our website is

If you wish upon a Lily, make it Pickled!
