Archives for 2015


We’ve done Thanksgiving in Delaware for most of my life. There’s nothing like going back to my childhood home for a few days and relaxing. However, there have also been a few times when we would go visit my brother when he lived in Philly or Raleigh and once when my family came to Baltimore […]


It’s almost December…how is that possible?! Lights are being hung throughout the city but it was 65 degrees last week! I feel like Christmas is coming so quickly and although my shopping is done (woohoo!) I haven’t decorated or really gotten into the spirit yet! As soon as Thanksgiving is over, I am busting out […]

Blates on Blates on Blates

When the Baltimore blogger babes and I became friends IRL (in real life) we decided to get together once a month to catch up and do something fun. After four blates (Blogger dates) I can honestly say that I seriously love getting together with these ladies. I don’t know anyone else who I could openly […]

Ways to make moving suck less

Moving sucks. No matter how far in advance you plan or how much you think you’ve done it still is no fun. I wish that Byrd and I were happily staying in our Fed Hill house for another year but that’s not the case. We love the neighborhood and our street in particular but this […]

SOTD Eats: Salis Meatballs & Enchilada Soup

Remember when I mentioned that I’ve been trying to cook more and eat out less? I continued that this week with some more comfort food and whipped up two delicious dishes. When I saw THIS recipe on Pinterest I pinned it and then went back later and couldn’t remember why I even saved it. I […]

Ways to Save Money in the City

 City living is not cheap. I am actually really grateful to have started my “adult life” in an expensive city learning how to budget and spend my money. Granted I learned a lot of hard lessons to get to this point, I’m still so glad for them.  Over the past three years I’ve learned little […]

Skating in the City

Last Friday was our Ice Rink opening- the ice rink that has been in progress since last Spring. Two of my co-workers (and boss) have been working non-stop since last spring to make the ice rink happen and I just came into the picture a few weeks ago to work on programming. The Opening Ceremony […]

Weekend of fun

This weekend was awesome. So awesome that I think a weekend recap is totally appropriate.  I started the weekend with only one thing written in my planner and it turned into a super fun, super spontaneous, super awesome weekend.  Friday night Chris and I met up with his friends Katie and Jay for a double […]

Comfort Food- Chicken & Dumpling Soup

Comfort food is my favorite kind of food. I will always pick a restaurant that serves mashed potatoes over a fancy one that doesn’t. I grew up in a farming community where home cooked meals were a staple and we always ate at the dining room table together as a family.  Some of my favorite […]

A Day in the Life of Soup

One of my favorite things about the blogging world is the chance to take a peek into the lives of others. I find it so interesting to read how people spend their day at work or days off during the weekend. I talk about work and my personal life a lot on this blog, but […]
