Oh Hey: Halloween!

Oh hey Friday! So today technically isn’t my Friday. I have to work a full day at UM and then work two boat cruises tonight for Yelp and am back at UM tomorrow for an evening event. I can’t complain though because this is the nature of the beast. Event planners work opposite hours of […]

Just call me princess leia

This past weekend was one for the books. It was so great to spend 4 days with my family and friends trying out Charlotte restaurants and celebrating David and Rachel. The weekend went by way too fast as expected but I’m so thankful for the time that I had with the ones I love. I […]

Halloween Snack Roundup

4 days until Halloweeeeeeen! It is in the top 3 of my favorite holidays. I actually learned this week that it is ranked number two in the list of most commercial holidays with Christmas being number one. I love the chill in the air, the crunchy leaves, picking out a costume (which I haven’t done […]

Speaking of pumpkin, this is the time of year when everyone goes crazy for it, literally crazy! I went to buy pumpkin for […]

Getting it right

I feel like I write this post once every few months. I want to get healthy so I dive head first into it and work hard for about a month or two and then one thing happens and I fall off the wagon. It’s usually a couple busy days of work or a fun weekend […]

Baltimore Eats: Farmstead Grill

I have a running list of restaurants in Baltimore that I want to try. Even though I visit one a week on average I feel like the list is never ending. As soon as I cross one off I’ve added two more. I can’t complain though because I am constantly trying new food and places […]

Yelp: Horseshoe Casino

I grew up in rural farm land on the Eastern Shore, you all know this. So when my Yelp boss told me our next event was going to be held at the brand new Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore I had no idea what to expect. I’ve never been in a casino before and to be […]
