Monday Madness 1.14.18

Happy Monday! First Monday Madness post on the year. Let me get you up to speed...

New year, new look. It was time to give A Cute Angle a little face lift and I went to Etsy for help.  I found CelloDesigns and the Dionne Template. After I the designer installed it for me (thank you!) I realized it was more pink than my signature purple. I brought my concern to her, and she's totally customized the template to exactly my vision for A Cute Angle. Something that never changes on my blog is my custom header designed by my friend from college, Tom McMeekin. That will always stay. He really nailed my personality in it.

Another important thing to note is that A Cute Angle has a new web address (!). The blog can now be found at My handle on Instagram and Twitter is now @ACuteAngleBlog. Use the icons to the right to make sure you're following me on all social media platforms!

This weekend Nick and I got some professional photos taken for the first time since our wedding! With our tenth wedding anniversary approaching I felt the timing was right. We had our little baby Scout in the photos too. We ended up working with a very sweet photographer, Jessica, from Jessica G Photography. We did mostly studio shots, but we did all brave the 18 degree weather for a few outdoor shots (including Scout)! I can't wait to see how they turned out.

I went with my friends Jess and Nikki on Saturday night to an A capell-Off at a local high schools which featured local college a capella groups.

Some of it was really, really awkward. Like some really bad arrangements and really, really questionable outfit choices.

It got better has the night went on and I ended up enjoying myself.

We finally got all of our Christmas stuff down this weekend! We needed to do it before leaving for Ireland and just a few short days!

I'm so excited to discover another new country! We'll be staying in Dublin, Killarney, and Waterford with tons of stops in between including The Cliffs of Moher, Blarney, and Killorglin.

Been playing with my new Google Pixel phone. This porg took over Scout's crate!

Have an awesome week!


  1. Ireland will be AMAZING- can't wait to see pics from that! Taking pictures can be fun- I always need to remember to eat before while I'm getting ready or else I get hangry during them haha!
