Moi's Travel Tips

February is super busy and is jam packed with lots of travel for yours truly. I head out Thursday to meet my mom and sis in Orlando. My sis is competing with her high school dance team at UDA Nationals. ( This is the same dance team that I coached for two years before I moved so I'm super pumped to see my girls!). After Florida, it's off to Kentucky for a couple choreography jobs, some guest teaching, two weekends in Cincy for dance competitions, and, when the hubby joins me, head with him on a couple interviews in the area. When it's all said and done, it's time to pack up and make the long drive back to Connecticut. I just wore myself out thinking about all of this, haha! It's going to be a lot but it should be lots of fun plus it will be great to be back home for a couple of weeks and see family and friends :)

Anyways... the past couple of years have been full of a lot of traveling either by plane or by car and since this next month is filled with jet setting and road trips I figured I would pass along some travel tips that I've picked up along the way.

I used to be the queen of overpacking! Okay, maybe the princess because I'm pretty sure my mom is the queen. Since I've started traveling more, and especially flying more, I've had to learn that 10 pairs of shoes and a million "extra" outfits just aren't necessary. I've learned to pack only the essentials and to seriously pack light. There is no need to pay extra $$$$ for my luggage to be over the 50 pound weight limit.

~ I color coordinate pretty much everything and choose a color theme that I will use throughout my entire trip. It's usually black or more neutral colors like chocolate or beige. If I can get away with leggings for an entire trip I throw in a few pairs and I'm good to go. Seriously... leggings are my best friend when traveling. Comfy and easy to pack.

~ I pack things that I can mix and match and get away with wearing twice. By doing this I pack less clothes and I am able to pack more accessories like scarves, necklaces, and a hat or two. It's amazing how accessorizing can change an entire outfit.

~ My carry on is jam packed! If you can get away with just a carry on and not checking a bag, more power to you! I just can't but I do utilize my carry on as much as possible. I mean... we're limited to our purse plus one carry on so my "carry on" is a large bag full of things I know I'll need. I make sure to throw in any meds I may need, extra contacts and contact solution, my glasses, and an extra outfit. My luggage has been lost more times than I can count and having an extra cardigan or fresh shirt always helps after a long day of traveling. I also keep my laptop in a case within my carry on, an extra phone charger, lotion (in a plastic bag), hand sanitizer, and any books and mags. And of couse my essentials: wallet with ID, cash, and credit cards, my phone, all receipts for luggage, boarding tickets, etc,...


Some things I learned the hard way:

~ Get to the airport early. The last time I flew, I literally pulled up to the airport less than an hour before my flight took off. Umm... oops! It was early and my bed sounded so much nicer than making the hour drive to the airport. Lesson learned! If you can... arrive at least an hour and a half to two hours before your flight is scheduled to depart. Those security lines are either way short or way long... usually the latter ;)

~ Check in online! Technology these days is absolutely amazing. Take advantage of online check in. I love that the night before my flight all I have to do is log in, check in, pay for my checked luggage, and then flip my computer closed. It's seriously that easy. When you get to the airport the next day, all you have to do is drop off your bags and head to the security line. Easy peasey!

~ Lay off the heavy jewelry. We all love our necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and watches but just go ahead and pack them in your checked bag or carry on because the chances that you'll have to take it all off for security is pretty high. It makes traveling a little easier on you and I am all about keeping things easy.

Travel & Beauty

Traveling can do all sorts of crazy things to our skin and immune systems. I'm the type of person that always gets a sore throat or dry eyes or some sort of cold when traveling. I've had to learn what works for me, my skin, and my health.

~ Moisturize! I can not say this enough... moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The night before I hop on a plane I do a really intense moisturizing regiment. It feels great, it refreshes my skin, but most importantly it prepares it for that long day ahead. I keep a bottle of lotion in my purse that is good for my face and hands. My hands always get dry when traveling so I just throw a bottle of lotion in my purse or carry on and try to treat myself every now and then.

~ Drink lots of water! I am a diet coke addict but water, especially before and during travel is absolutely essential! On flights, when we're served our drinks I still treat myself to a diet coke but only if I have water as well. If I have time before my flight, I try to run in and grab a bottled water to keep with me. On road trips, bottled water is always important to sip on. We eat so poorly while traveling (well, I do!) so at least water will keep us hydrated ;)

~ Reapply your lip balm! Just like my hands, my lips tend to get super dry so lip balm is always a good thing to keep handy. If you get dry, itchy eyes, don't forget your eyedrops either!

~ We all want to look cute and like a movie star when we travel but go easy on the makeup when you're flying. It's actually worse for your skin, when flying, to apply tons of makeup. So keep it light. I usually do a primer, foundation with a little powder, mascara, and lip gloss. Clean, simple, and better for our beautiful faces!

~ Speaking of our faces... keep your hands off your face! Think about how many germs we come in contact with while traveling. Do you want that on your face? Didn't think so ;) It's hard to not touch your face but try to keep your hand sanitizer in close reach so you can get some of those germs off of you!

~ Get plenty of rest! The night before I travel is always the most stressful but it is so important to get a good amount of zzzzz's in the nights leading up to your flight or road trip. Traveling is tiring and takes a lot out of you but if you're well rested, it can be a breeze.

What are some of your best travel tips?

Have a great day ladies!

Being a Biblical Wife in a Modern World

The Sounds of Silence

" In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent."
~ Psalm 4:4 ~

Ladies... we like to talk. A lot. It's one of those things that we do best. Am I right? I know I love to talk! I love having friends that I'm able to meet for coffee, or call on the phone, and a mom that calls me routinely on her way to work each morning. It's truly a blessing to have loved ones that you know you can count on for a good chat. As great as words can be though, words also have a time and place. Sometimes it is best to put our words to rest. That time is when we are called upon to listen. Whether we are being called to listen to God or our hubby needs our undivided attention, listening is an important art for any relationship.

Yes, I called listening an art because I believe it takes time to grow into being a reliable listener. Listening is hard and can be a challenge. We don't always want to listen to what God may be telling us to do... I mean, sometimes we have our own plans, right? Ha! Wrong! At the end of a long day, the last thing we may want to do is listen to our hubby tell us about his long day. Hello? Isn't it all about "me"? Wait... no! Listening is all about give and take. My hubby and I are still working on perfecting this technique but we're totally fine with that. We all have a tendency to be selfish or interrupt or come up with a million excuses why we don't want to listen but listening is an imperative piece to this puzzle that we call marriage.

Yes, I just called marriage a puzzle. Isn't it though? Aren't we constantly trying to put the pieces together until we have a completed picture? My hubby and I aim to work towards completing our puzzle and I truly feel that each day we are together, our puzzle grows more complete. We are growing, we are changing, and we are aiming to make all the pieces fit together. In order to continue to complete our puzzle we need to have a solid foundation with God so that He can continue to guide us and coach us.

Yes, I just called God a coach. That's who I go to to learn valuable tools and lessons. That's who I rely on for encouragement and perseverance. That's who I go to for reassurance and answers. God coaches us through life and His Word is our game plan but we can't do what we're made to do if we don't take the time to really listen to Him. Wouldn't it be great if God just came down and had a quick chit chat with us? Life would probably be so much easier if we just went to Starbucks and God was able to tell us exactly what He wants us to do with our lives and what His plan is for us. But what would we be learning if that's how it all worked? We need to go to Him personally! He so craves a relationship with us and He wants us to seek Him!

Over the holidays my hubby and I had an uncomfortable visit we needed to make. We were a mix of emotions. We were trying to stay positive but feelings of dread, negativity, and hurt feelings started to seep in. We prayed and prayed and prayed for our sour feelings to just go away. I prayed and prayed and prayed for a way to get out of this visit and for the Lord and my hubby to forgive me for bailing out. Some of these things that I was praying for were selfish and definitely not what God was leading me to do. My stomach was literally in knots in the days leading up to this visit. The day that we were supposed to head out, I woke up super early in the morning. I could not fall back asleep and it was too early to peel myself out of bed so I just laid in bed, closed my eyes, and started praying. I was so overwhelmed with emotions and prayer that I honestly can't even remember what exactly I was praying for. I was enjoying this quiet time with God during the early, peaceful morning and that's when it hit me. In those moments of silence it was like the Lord just leaned over me and whispered, "Hannah, just do it." Sounds like a Nike commercial but it was all I needed to hear and it was all God wanted me to do. I had to get over my selfish doubts and just go with it and trust what the Lord was commanding me to do. We need to trust the Lord and listen to Him! We need to stop worrying what others think and we need to be confident in the fact that we have the Lord as our coach, cheering us on and supporting us.

Ladies... silence is golden and such a valuable tool! In silence we can listen to our loved ones but most importantly we can listen to God. What can you hear when you really stop and listen? What is He telling you to do? What is He leading you to do?

Be still. Be trusting. Be silent.

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I can't believe it's already Wednesday y'all! This week is flying by... which I'm totally not complaining about, ha! Not too much going on over here other than laundry, cleaning, laundry, spending the day with my hubby, and more laundry ;) Here's what I'm loving today:

I'm loving that we finally got some snow this past weekend! We have had almost zero snow this winter so it was so nice to see a that beautiful, white blanket of snow covering the ground.

I'm loving some of my Pinterest finds. You can follow my pins/boards here!

And as always, I'm loving my sweet, sweet hubby and am so happy that he has the day off today!

Have an awesome day ladies!

Book Review!

It is no secret that I love to read. I mean...I really love to read! To me, there is nothing better than getting lost in a good book. I'm totally that person that when I finish a book, I feel kind of sad...well, until I throw myself into another book and repeat the cycle all over again, haha. So I thought, "What better than to start a little book review on my blog"? I thought this would be a great way to share what I'm reading with y'all and for us to swap recommendations and what not. So here goes...my first book review!

I honesty had no intention (or desire) to read this series. That was until I saw the trailer for the movie a few months ago. It looked totally awesome! Pretty much everyone that I know has read the books and I am certain I'm one of the last one to hop on the bandwagon but, oh well, haha. Girls...it is AH- MAZING! I seriously could not put the first book down. Really. I'm not kidding. I'm not exaggerating. I started it last Thursday afternoon and 24 hours later I made my hubby drive to the closest Barnes and Noble so I could get the rest of the series. I love Amazon but I had to have the books in my possession that night...I may have been slightly dramatic but I was hooked by "The Hunger Games". Suzanne Collins has such a beautiful, powerful, intense way of writing. 10 pages into the first book and I automatically felt so attached to the main character, Katniss. Collins' descriptions are so believable that you feel the pain, agony, happiness, fear, and hope that the characters feel. I got so lost in Collins' words and so wrapped up in the characters world. As soon as I finished the first book I immediately started the second, "Catching Fire". The beginning was great, picking right back up where we left off with the previous book. I found parts of the storyline a little repetitive until right in the middle an unexpected twist totally drew me back in again. The last 150 pages or so were such a surprise for me...I never saw it coming but I'm so glad Collins found a way to make this story continue to grow. These books are truly one of a kind and could possibly be one of my favorite series. I don't even know how to describe them. So creative, so groundbreaking. I read the "Twilight" series and I liked them (much better than the movies!) but I never got caught up in them like I have with "The Hunger Games". Y'all...run to your nearest bookstore and pick up the first book...you won't regret it!

Here is the movie trailer that drew me in. I am hoping that the movie is just as good as the books. Based on the trailer, it doesn't look like it will disappoint! I've seriously watched this like a million times...counting down the days until it comes out! I'm such a loser ;)

My next book review will be on "Mockingjay", the final book in the series. I started it this morning and literally had to pry myself away from it so I could be somewhat productive today, haha!

Have any of you read the books? If so, what did you think?
Have a great day ladies!

Being A Biblical Wife in a Modern World

The Power of Prayer

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
~ Mark 11:24 ~

Being a Biblical wife comes with some pretty awesome advantages and responsibilities. My hubby and I have not been married long but I learned early on that prayer is an important aspect of marriage. We pray together daily and seek His Word together but it is during my time alone with God that I look forward to the most. This is my time to bring everything to God and to pray for my husband.

As a wife, prayer is one of the most important things that we can do for our hubby's. This is not only a necessary responsibility but a privilege. God wants us to seek Him. He wants us to come to Him with our desires, our praises, our wants, our struggles and prayer is an amazing way to humbly connect with God. Through prayer we are lifting up our hubby and the results are positive for him, us, and our marriages.

It is so important to let the Lord lead your marriage. That is my number one prayer when it comes to praying for my hubby and our marriage! I pray that we always remember who is in charge and that we continue to choose to leave our marriage to His care.

Prayer is such an intimate way to connect with God and to deepen our relationships with Him. By having a strong prayer based relationship with the Lord, our relationship with our hubby's can only continue to grow and thrive. Praying for your hubby may not always be easy but it should always be a priority. Think about the role that you desire your hubby to fulfill. Being a leader, being strong in his faith, being a hard worker, etc,... these are all important things to pray about for your hubby.

And ladies, your hubby's should be lifting you up through prayer too! It is a wonderful, overwhelming feeling that I know I have someone I can rely on to go to God on my behalf. It is amazingly awesome to pray together but it is also so awesome to have that one on one time with God.

There are some great tools out there to help start you on your journey to pray for your husband.

This is a link to "Revive our Hearts". It is a 31 day prayer guide to pray for your hubby.


This is an amazing book! I still refer to it from time to time and it has some wonderful devotions and prayers.

Being a wife is an experience like no other but nothing beats being able to go to God and just lay it all out there and humble yourself, your hubby, and your marriage before Him.

Have a wonderful week ladies and remember... nothing is as strong as the power of prayer!

I'm loving these dresses from Anthropologie. If I had all the money in the entire world I would probably buy everything from that store. I'm seriously in love with their clothes!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I feel like I have been so out of the WILW link-up loop! I'm happy to be back and link-up with Jamie on this gorgeous, Connecticut day :) Here's what I'm loving today:

I'm loving that the next few months are shaping up to be super busy and require a lot of travel! Between my hubby's job search/interviews, his acceptance to present at a few conferences, and some choreography/dance jobs for me, we are going to be all over the place this Spring! We are really fortunate for these opportunities and I'm excited to bust out the passport for one of our trips!

I'm loving that my new book has come in the mail. Sidenote: Why is Amazon so dang addicting?!?! I could shop on there all day...for real! Anywho, I've heard a lot of people talking about how awesome the "Hunger Game" series is and I kind of wrote it off but then I saw the movie trailer and it looked awesome so I knew I had to read the book. I can't wait to start!

I'm loving that the Miss America Scholarship Pageant is coming on ABC this Saturday night at 9 PM EST. I used to be a pageant girl in the Miss KY system (talent winner as well!) and I can not even begin to tell you what a wonderful organization this is. Some of my best memories come from my pageant days. This is not your typical pageant...it is based on brains and beauty! Be sure to tune in!

I'm loving my Pinterest finds from this past week:

You can follow my Pinterest boards here!

And as always, I'm loving my sweet, sweet hubby!

Have a great day ladies!

A DIY Must Try

So I came across a pic on Pinterest the other night that gave a DIY/at home facial scrub. It seemed a little too good to be true but I decided to give it a go. Here's what you need:

* 3 tablespoons baking soda
* 1 tablespoon water
* 5 minutes of your time

Seriously... that's it! So I grabbed my baking soda and water, threw it in a bowl, and gave it a good stir. I spread the mixture on my face and neck and set my phone timer for 5 minutes. A few minutes later, after a quick rinse, I had super smooth skin. No joke! Who knew all ya needed was some baking soda and water.

I'll definitely be doing this once or twice a week from now on. It was so, so easy and so, so cheap! Even my hubby noticed a little glow after I was done ;)

This is a must try ladies! Have a great day :)

Being A Biblical Wife in a Modern World

Happy Wife, Happy Life

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things.
~ Philippians 4:8 ~

There are so many struggles and battles that we are all facing each and every day. The daily stresses that we go through with our families can be stressful, trying, frustrating, and just plain exhausting. Whether we're dealing with health issues, finances, family matters, work problems, etc,.., these things can begin to take a toll on our marriages and family life. As wives, it can be difficult to stay strong and supportive during times like this but I truly believe in the power of prayer and staying positive.

This can be a difficult thing to do. It's hard to see things in a positive light when stressful circumstances seem to consume you but that's half the battle. Yes, there are bumps in the road that happen to all of us. The loss of a job, the loss of money, the loss of a loved one.. these are all things that can consume us and lead us towards feelings of bitterness, resentment, or anger. But there is something that we have that we will never lose. Something bigger than anything we can fathom. God's love! When the hubs and I are facing a difficult time, I always pray for Him to remind me how blessed we are in other ways. I pray for Him to show us what lesson He is teaching us. I pray for Him to continue to protect us and guide us. I try so hard to put my entire trust in God and pass my burden of worries over to Him.

What an amazing thing it is to be able to go to God and just lay it all out there. He takes that burden and lifts it from us and our families. One thing I have learned as a wife is to not take out my worries and stresses on my hubby and in return he does the same. Stressing each other out and getting one another worked up over a situation does nothing but cause more stress and it allows a crack in the marriage foundation to begin breaking. We have made it a point to pray together when we face a big decision and we always try to keep our lives in perspective.

Next time you and your hubby are facing a tough choice or going through difficult circumstances, take on your wifely duty and stay positive! Think of those things that are pure and noble and remember to be a woman of God. It's natural to go through up's and down's in life. When the hubs gets frustrated about something, I always to keep things in perspective. I remind of him of the roof over our heads, the food in our fridge, and the good health that we have. I knew I was rubbing off when my hubby looked over at me earlier today and said, "We have been truly blessed". I just smiled :)

Life can be hard and at times all we want to do is just hide away and not deal with it but in the scheme of things we have to look at the big picture and put our entire trust in the Lord and trust His guidance. He would not give us anything that we could not handle and He would not do anything that would harm us. It's easier to say these things than to constantly practice them but ladies, let's keep those thoughts positive and be a positive influence for our sweet, sweet, hubbies! Happy wife, happy life!

And it begins...

When we moved to Connecticut last summer, we knew we would be here for at least a year and that anything after B's fellowship was, well...something we would deal with later, haha. Y'all... "later" has arrived! B began his job search right before the holidays and started getting in touch with practices that may be hiring come summer 2012. He got a few leads, submitted his CV to quite a few different places, references were called, and our hopes were up. By the middle of December we kind of hit a wall. The holidays are always a busy time for everyone so we figured people were in and out of work and it was time to set the job thing on the shelf until the beginning of the year. I don't know if any of y'all have an issue with this, but being patient is super hard! I am such a planner and love to be somewhat organized. Last minute plans drive me crazy and not having some sort of "agenda" to follow puts me in all kinds of disarray. You can imagine my excitement when B told me that he was offered an in interview! And you can imagine my OCD kick in when he told me that they wanted to meet with him in 2 weeks and gave us no further travel info or definite dates.

Between all of our excitement, bewilderment, and more patience, everything has been set and all travel arrangements are to be finalized Monday morning. Our first stop on my hubby's interview tour is...

Tampa, Florida!

B has had his eye on Tampa for so long so I know he is super pumped for this opportunity! I am so,so,so happy for him :) I have never been to Tampa but B has and he loves it. Now we all know that I'm a southern girl at heart so getting back south where warm weather reigns supreme is fine by me. I remember when B first introduced the idea to go to Tampa. I was totally hesitant but the more reading I've done on the city, the more excited I got about adding it to "our list". Yes... we have a "list" of places we'd like to be and possible settle down. Tampa is high on that list ;)

All I've been thinking about since last night is being to able to get away and escape to some warm sunshine for a bit. My spring/summer clothes have been packed away for a few months now but it looks like I get to pull out a few numbers for our little visit. I can not wait! I love experiencing a new city and traveling to new places but I'm really excited for B to learn more about this awesome opportunity.

These pics from Pinterest have definitely sparked some Florida love in my heart:

I posted something about the start to our new journey on FB and I was so pleased when one of B's aunts commented about how I am an "amazingly adaptable woman". I take a lot of pride in being a supportive wife and truly making myself adaptable to where my hubby needs to be for his work right now. Carol...thank you for your sweet comment! It made me smile :) It is not always easy to put someone else in front of our own wants but this gal has a few business ideas of her own and I know that in God's time everything will work and that B will be there for me. For now, I just gotta keep being patient!

Have a fabulous Friday ladies!
