The Best of the Best

It's hard to believe it's ALREADY pretty much September. The beginning of fall, football season, and cooler weather--MY FAVORITE!

I've been doing my fair share of housekeeping around Because I Said So: getting ready for some new opportunities, continuing to grow, and welcoming new readers. It's kind of cool, my little corner of the internet, has come a VERY long way since I started it the summer AFTER I graduated college. So if you're new here or want a refresher, read on!





Pros + Cons of Moving Back In with Your Parents - I had someone come up to me and tell me how much they loved this post and how true it was, even for them! Best. compliment. ever. AND it's always nice to know that people are, in fact, reading my blog!


My Dad Thinks I'm a Princess - If you're in the market for a new craft, I've got you (paint) covered! Plus, who doesn't want to paint like be the Princess of Genovia for a few hours?


Blog Specific Hashtag - I speak in hashtags on the reg..anyone else?


Here Comes the Bride...Movies - I didn't know I owned this many wedding-related movies until I hosted my first Bachelorette Party! The epitome of everything girly--in one post.


No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake - I don't "cook" unless it requires the microwave. So, to say that this cheesecake was my pride and joy (until my family ate it all) is an understatement.


Date Night on a Budget - I'm living on a budget--who isn't? It's the new, cool thing to do, by the way.


Sippin' Pretty -  Margaritas aren't just for Cinco de Mayo #duh  Also, my first "styled" shoot and I still don't have a place to put the piƱata in my room.


The Wedding File - Because I'm super organized like that. With each friend that gets married and each bridal show I attend (for work), the file grows.


It's Not Your Sticky Socks, It's YOU - Back when I used to take Pure Barre classes (something I'd like to get back into).


Football Widow-ry - Football season is starting (like this week) and while I can surprise you with my amount of football knowledge, I still lose my boyfriend to the season.
