Dreaming back to our honeymoon cruise with @celebritycruises today! 😭 anyone else in serious need of a vacation?! 🙋🏼♂️🙋🏻♂️
First day of third grade!! 😭💜
Since we have been a bit MIA of late we wanted to hop on for a quick update! Our house is still for sale, which has been a tedious ordeal (having to have the house clean at all times for a potential showing is v annoying 🙄) but we are patiently waiting for the right buyer to come along. • Sydnee starts third grade on Tuesday 😱 which blows our minds! She is growing up way too fast, but we are so proud of her every single day. • We are now a household of just one pup and one cat. One of our best friends @srar_spraggs came to visit with her husband and son a couple weeks ago and they fell in love with our sweet Ollie boy and ended up taking him to live with them in St. Louis. Before we get negative messages about it, just hear us out... We are about to move into an apartment with limited space and both have busy schedules and as much as we love Ollie, he was a much more hyper pup than Lily and needs space to get his zoomies out. Sara is a deeply trusted friend and we know that Ollie is so much happier and living his best life getting to rough house with her son. We will still see him when they come to town or when we visit St. Louis, but it’s still bittersweet for us, yet we know it was the best choice for Ollie. 🐶 • That pretty much sums up the last couple weeks of our lives! 😂 Wishing you all a happy Saturday! We would love to hear about any big changes you have going on in your lives too! Let us know below so we don’t feel like the only ones living in limbo these days! 😱😂
We’ve mentioned one of our favorite local stores @5poundapparel before - we stan their shirts, like... all of them! We also stan a company that gives back to those in need! They donate five pounds of food to local food pantries for every purchase made (hence their name) – so when they told us about their new @givebackpact project, we were so excited to help spread the word! • Our daughter will be in third grade this year, and her mom is a teacher, so we know firsthand how important it is for kids to start the new school year fully prepared with all of the supplies they need to succeed, including a backpack. As part of the @givebackpact project, for each Campbell Backpack purchased, @5poundapparel will donate a kid-friendly backpack to a local @officialsps student in need! • We love the Campbell Backpack! They come in a variety of colors and have plenty of space for our stuff, a laptop/tablet sleeve and a USB charger link port! The new school year is right around the corner and so far @5poundapparel has donated 100 backpacks, but so many more are needed! If you’re looking for a new backpack and want to help students in need, use the link in our bio or story, or visit @5poundapparel / @givebackpact to grab one... or two! 👏🏼 • When you place an order, share the confirmation to your story and tag us! We’d love to see the support for such a great cause/company!
Iced coffee? At the farmer’s market? Groundbreaking. • 📸: @whitney.elizabeth90
Today’s agenda includes our second open house this weekend, groceries, laundry, and the @biglittlelies finale tonight! 😱 All these things, and more.... brought to you by COFFEE ☕️ 😂 - Send all your good vibes our way for a successful open house today! We are two of the most impatient people, and we are ready for our house to sell so we can start our next chapter! 👏🏼 Wishing everyone a happy and productive #Sunday 💜
Something we apparently haven’t mastered: mirror selfies. 🤷🏼♂️ Oh well, happy Monday! 😂
Well it’s finally official! We have decided to sell our house 😱. We are so in love with the house we built two years ago, but it’s just a little too big for what we need and we are ready to move on to the next adventure! We will likely rent for a year or so then buy some land outside of town and build again! • We will post some pics from the listing in our stories if you want to take a peek! Happy Saturday!
It’s been a minute since we last reintroduced ourselves! We’re Chris (right) and Nate (left)! We’re husbands, living in Missouri, navigating fatherhood, careers and everything in between. • Chris works in PR/Communications and Nate is a PA-C in Dermatology! We have a daughter, Sydnee - she’s eight and is Nate’s biological daughter who we co-parent with @bcwormz! We have two dogs, Ollie and Lily, and one cat, Ginny - all named after Harry Potter characters - Chris is a Slytherin and Nate’s a Ravenclaw! 🧙🏻♂️ • If you’d like to read more of our story, check out the link in our bio. ❤️ • Design & Styling: Wildly Collective @wildlycollective_ Photography: Elise Abigail Photo @eliseabigailphoto Florals: @wildlycollective_ and C-Street Flowers @cstreetflowers Hair and Makeup Artist: Becka McCroskey @becka.kay Suits: Men's Wearhouse @menswearhouse Coordination: Unions With Celia @unionswithcelia Decor and Tablescape Rentals: The Vintage Rental Company @thevintagerentalcompany
Happy Insta-versary to us! We just realized this past weekend marked one year since we decided to share our story with everyone. We had no idea what we were doing, but it’s been a whirlwind of a year and we are floored that 40,000 people are following along with us! 😱 • What type of content/part of our life would you like to see more of in the next year?! Let us know below 😊
So sorry we have been absent for the last few days! We have had a really hectic week 😱. Chris and I have been considering some big decisions this week and might have some exciting changes coming our way 👏🏼 We will see how it all plays out 🤞🏼. • Pardon our appearance, but we just spent the last few hours at the spa. We started with a couples mud treatment with mint steam shower, then a massage, followed by the dry sauna, eucalyptus steam shower, then finished it all out in the cold room 🤤. Moral of the story: when things get hectic just set aside time to do something special together! We all deserve it! 💪🏼
We’ll always remember June 26, 2015. While we weren’t at a place in our relationship where marriage was on the table, the fact that we couldn’t even legally get married if we wanted to was such a dehumanizing feeling for us. The day the Supreme Court decided the Obergefell case, the trajectory of our relationship changed completely. We didn’t necessarily need any external validation to give merit to our relationship, but just knowing that we could legally marry and be afforded all the same benefits and protections heterosexual couples were given ignited a little spark of hope within us. One day, when the time was right, we could walk down the aisle and profess our love in front of our family and friends. • The closing paragraph will forever give us goosebumps. Props to @bcwormz for having it turned into a piece of art for our gallery wall. ❤️
Loving you makes every morning, even a #Monday , worth getting up for. ❤️ • Design & Styling: Wildly Collective @wildlycollective_ Photography: Elise Abigail Photo @eliseabigailphoto Florals: @wildlycollective_ and C-Street Flowers @cstreetflowers Hair and Makeup Artist: Becka McCroskey @becka.kay Suits: Men's Wearhouse @menswearhouse Coordination: Unions With Celia @unionswithcelia Decor and Tablescape Rentals: The Vintage Rental Company @thevintagerentalcompany
Apparently #InternationalSushiDay is a real thing - so we skipped cooking, grabbed a few rolls on our way home and had a cheat day! 🍣 • As always, we’re looking for show recommendations! Let us know in the comments if there’s a @netflix/@amazonprimevideo/@hulu show we should check out. • #tuesday #foodstagram
