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 […]

Wedding Wednesday: Building a Budget

This post was written for Baltimore Bride’s Hitched: The Blog. You can find it HERE. When asked the question, “What is the hardest part about planning a wedding?” my response has consistently been building the budget! While I’m sure the “hardest part” will change over the course of our 15-month engagement, for now the budget […]

Tranquility in NJ

A few weeks ago Chris and I drove to Connecticut for a one year old’s birthday party. The drive to CT was insanely gorgeous (long), but gorgeous. We enjoyed the afternoon with Chris’ college friends who have become some of my favorite people over the past two years! We enjoyed yummy bbq, drinks and each […]

Float On

On Sunday six of us loaded into two vehicles and traveled the 60 ish miles to Harper’s Ferry for our favorite summer activity of tubing. We try to go at least twice a summer but with busy schedules, work and life this was the only Sunday we all had free so we booked it months […]

Stage Mom Status

Ya’ll, I need to add the title of Mom-ager to my resume now. Cannoli made his tv debut last week! How crazy is that?! ^^ Ignore my mid-sentence face! I do short interviews with our local news station to promote our upcoming events and the interview for Yappy Hour was last week! Since things move […]

Date Night in Bmore: Fogo de Chao

When Chris got back from Italy we were in DIRE need of a date night. Over a week apart was too long so we made a reservation at Fogo de Chao on the night following his return.  Spoiler alert: I had never been to Fogo de Chao. Crazy? Maybe, but I eat an almost vegan […]

Charm City Creatives- Cream Cruiser

Double chocolate and mint chip, oatmeal raisin and toasted coconut, or double chocolate and peanut butter? Which would YOU choose? It’s a tough question to answer when you’re standing in front of the Cream Cruiser bike trying to decide on just ONE flavor. That’s how I felt the first time I experienced the wonderful treat […]

July Recap

Happy first day of August friends! The summer is flying by but a small part of me is ready for the Fall temps, crisp leaves and pumpkin flavored everything. But only a small part. I still have an action packed August and early September to enjoy before Fall moves in.  What happened in July? I’ll […]
