Week 29: Red Beans and Rice

When Chris and I went to New Orleans last year we were surrounded by red beans and rice with sausage at every restaurant we went to. Chris ordered it a couple times and I snuck small bites here and there. I didn’t grow up eating sausage so it wasn’t until recently that I decided I […]

When You Know

“But how do you know?” I was standing in the kitchen with my mom crying that I hated the dating world.  How on earth could “when you know, you know” be the advice that my Mom had just given me. She is always the smartest person in my life giving spot on advice and while […]

3 Events Before Noon

September 16th has been on my calendar for a few months as “the really busy day in September”. It’s very rare that I have more than one event in a single day. In fact, this is only the second day in over two years that it’s happened but this is the first year that I […]

Dinner Under the Stars

As we rounded the corner I felt like Lorelai Gilmore walking through Stars Hollow. There were tables set up spanning the width of the street for as far as I could see. Cafe lights were strung overhead and glittered as the sun set the sky on fire with deep oranges and yellows. Jazz music wafted […]

Fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd but the cool crisp air has arrived in Baltimore and the leaves are slowly changing into hues of red and orange. I LOVE it! This is by far my favorite time of the year. From now until January I’m a happy happy girl but Fall the next few […]

Violated

That’s how I feel right now. Violated.  Last week I started my 10 day vacation from my job. Chris and I had a great Saturday with friends and then went to the Ravens game. After we got home that evening, as we were sleeping multiple people broke into our home and stole most of our valuable […]

Bye August, Hello September

Happy September friends! This month marks the beginning of Fall, the start of wedding season for us, and 365 days until our wedding! I can’t wait to see what fun will be had this month. But we can’t jump right into September without remembering everything that happened in August! August was a hard month for […]

Summer ’17 Bucket List Recap

 Summer 2017 is gone. How….HOW is that possible?! I feel like the last three months flew by way quicker than any before and my summer is gone. While I’m a basic B and LIVE for Fall, I’m still sad that the carefree attitude and warm nights of summer have gone by so quickly.  It’s been […]

Week 28: Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Whew… this little series was put on the back burner over the last few weeks while my life took off and became insane! So sorry friends! While this started as a goal for 2017 I will 100% continue posting delicious recipes until I’ve reached 52 weeks!  I noticed a trend with my cooking and especially […]
