Housewarming Party

I love a good housewarming party, probably because I have always loved homes and how they are designed and built. I especially love when my friends move into new places in the city because each house in Baltimore is so different and full of history! Byrd and I held our housewarming party on Saturday and […]

Slow Cooker Monday- Cinnamon Monkey Bread

I used to make monkey bread with my Dad every summer for the Delaware State Fair. I was in 4-H and loved making food and crafts to enter into the fair each year to win ribbons! When I was working on new crockpot recipes I thought about making monkey bread but I wanted to jazz […]

House Tour- My Sanctuary

When Byrd and I moved into the new house in January we were struck by how quaint it is. My old house was so large that you couldn’t really decorate or feel cozy especially with the vaulted ceilings. Although some things in the new house are dated I love the character that it adds. There’s […]

What I’ve Been Reading

The Good Gone with a Handsomer Man Teeny Templeton catches her fiancé with two other women only to turn up dead a few days later and Teeny is framed for his murder. That sounds pretty serious and I found this book when looking for recommendations that were similar to Gone Girl. It definitely is suspenseful […]

Slow Cooker Monday- Superbowl Chili + Cornbread Waffles

I wasn’t feeling well over the weekend so I kept my distance from the kitchen! Instead of leaving you all hanging today without some mealtime inspiration I thought I’d share a new trick that I learned from Mix and Match Mama.  My Mom’s Superbowl Chili recipe is by far my most made slow cooker recipe. […]

Life Lately V.4

Last week was crazy. Insane crazy! I worked 75 hours between both jobs, cranked out blog posts, spent an evening with Steve, and saw my family. I didn’t sleep much but it was worth it. I get so much joy and satisfaction from doing my job- planning events and promoting Baltimore. It’s taken me a long […]

Mar’s in town!

There is no greater feeling than coming home after a long day at work to a jumping and excited puppy. Am I right? Mar has been in town for the past couple of days and will be staying for a couple more. I always love when this sweet little boy comes to visit and can’t […]

Shamrock Snacks

Happy St.Patrick’s Day everyone! I’m over here sporting a green scarf (the only green I own) and whipping up some tasty treats for my friends and co-workers. Oh, did I mention that one of my friends is actually in Dublin? Must be nice! Back to the treats- Saturday was the Federal Hill Irish Stroll and […]

Slow Cooker Monday- Homemade Granola

Over the past few months I’ve been taking serious steps towards eating healthy and making smarter choices with food. One of the meals I’ve grown to absolutely love is yogurt, granola and fruit for my breakfast on the go. Since I work a shift schedule at UMB there are two weeks in every month when […]

Warby Parker for the Win

There are times when I forget I am an adult and then in one instant I am smacked back into reality that I am 24 (almost 25) and am technically an adult. The most recent realization of this was last week when I bought new prescription sunglasses. It wasn’t a huge purchase, but realistically I […]
