Happy hump day!! This week has been a whirlwind so far. Lots of work, trying to squeeze in workouts, and some other appointments. Did you catch Monday’s post? Today I’m sharing another Valentine’s look as well as some Valentine’s Day gifts for him. Josh is SO tough to shop for. He really doesn’t like much and is extremely simple. I always try to get him gift cards or buy him clothes since the guy will NOT shop for himself haha. But I thought I would round up some easy, small gifts for him in case you’re in need of some ideas this year 🙂 [Read more…]
How is it Christmas card season already!??? Just WOW. Feels like 2018 started yesterday. Josh and I planned to send out a couple of Christmas cards this year since we moved in together in May and it has really felt like we have our own little family. Well family of Josh and I and three animals haha. [Read more…]

HAPPY Friyyaayyy!!! Seriously so pumped for this weekend. Josh, Marley, and I are headed to Austin for our friends wedding. And we get to see/stay with Josh’s family and see our niece… YAY! Last weekend, we went to the Apple Orchards here in West Texas and had so much fun!! I LOVE these photos because it really captures how much fun we were having haha. Marley kept running off into the mud and sneaking behind trees. [Read more…]
Hi y’all!! It’s MONDAY… again 🙂 I’ve been trying to not “wish” for the weekend each week and I’ve been taking more advantage of each day so I’m going to try again this week to stick to that mindset. If you’ve been following along on Instagram stories… y’all know I’ve done a little decorating lately. FOR FALL!! I love fall home decor. It makes the house so cozy and warm. I’ve shared a full apartment tour before and we live in a really amazing apartment complex in Lubbock called Park East. It’s the perfect space for Josh and I but it’s definitely small. There’s not TOO much space to decorate with so this is how I did our fall home decor for our smaller space. [Read more…]
Josh and I have been living together the past 4 months. It’s been amazing, challenging, and so fun. We’ve had our ups and downs but nonetheless, it’s been everything I wanted. YEP, people aren’t lying when they say living with a man is different. And I can imagine for Josh, living with me is a lot different as well. A good different though I must say. Josh is my absolute best friend and I adore him. You definitely get to know the other person on a whole different level when you’re living together. [Read more…]
Welcome, welcome!! 🙂 It feels like y’all are all coming over for a wine night haha… or at least, let’s just pretend that lol? This weekend was a fun but crazy one. We got to see Josh’s mom and brothers and my sister is still living with us. BUT, welcome to Josh and I’s home tour! We live at Park East Living in Lubbock, Texas. It’s a really fabulous apartment building and we feel really fortunate to live in a 2-bedroom apartment. I’ve shown y’all our bedroom, this is our living room, and I’ll show y’all my office in a few weeks. This apartment is small, but it’s the perfect space for us two (well… and the cats and dog.)
My Home Tour Outfit:
Hi loves! I’m back with more engagement things. Did I tell y’all our wedding hashtag yet!? At first it was #meanttobemartinez but I had a sweet follower on IG share a fun one that I loved so much more. #madformartinez!! I love this because my blog goes my “Audrey MAD Stowe” The mad is for Madison but I love how it plays with both of our names. I shared our proposal story a couple of weeks ago and wanted to pop back in and have Josh share how he designed my engagement ring as well as some ring trends. [Read more…]
Hey you! Happy Friday. Boy, am I ready to crawl in bed and watch movies all weekend haha. This is my last weekend of calm because every weekend in July I’m either out of town or have something going on. Anyways, I’ve been trying to finalize different rooms in our apartment and it’s all starting to finally get done and look the way I dreamed. The first room to finish was our bedroom so I thought I’d share a master bedroom tour. 🙂 Since I recently graduated college and my fiancè still has another year… we wanted our space to be young and fun, yet mature because let’s be honest… we’re like old people haha.

Soooo… if you haven’t heard… I’M ENGAGED. It still feels not real! Although I’ve definitely started getting really excited and am constantly pinning to my wedding board already haha. I will be keeping y’all posted and bringing y’all along all of my wedding planning ventures but I will say that we are planning for a pretty long engagement! We are in no rush and Josh still has a 5th year of school. Probably later this fall I will jump full force into planning. [Read more…]

This past month Josh and I have been buying/replacing furniture for our new apartment. AKA spending all of our money haha. Why is furniture so dang expensive!? I’ve been finding some really awesome deals though that I’ll share with y’all soon. BUT, I’ve been selling clothes and we have been trying to make any little bit of cash we can. [Read more…]
