Memories of a Song + HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE!

I love how the smell of burning leaves takes me back to childhood memories, that the feel of a warm breeze reminds me of summers at the beach and that a certain song reminds of a particular moment in time. That moment in time was about six months ago, when I was completely smitten with […]

Taco Soup Recipe

By now you all know how much I love my crockpot, so when my friend Whitney gave me a bowl of taco soup and told me she made it in her crockpot, I was sold! Thanks Whitney for passing along the recipe! I made a few adjustments to her original recipe but the core ingredients […]

Jury Duty + Guest Post + An Announcement

Happy Tuesday! I am spending the day doing my civic duty and reporting for Jury Duty. While I am doing that, you should head over to Jess’ blog since I’m guest posting today! Jess and I were paired up to create and mail each other ornaments this past Christmas and I’ve grown to love reading […]

12×30 Challenge- No Spend February Week 3

It’s time to recap the 12×30 challenge so far this month. The goal was to get rid of unnecessary spending. Last time I explained how hard it is for me to walk by so many stores with their “75% OFF SALE” signs on the windows. But I have been doing it! I haven’t bought clothing, […]

My Go-To Chili

I have been on a chili kick lately because it’s so easy to make in the crockpot, feeds me for about 4 meals, and is delicious. Not to mention it’s warm and hearty on these cold snowy days! And yes I do call it Superbowl Chili even though it’s definitely not Superbowl weekend and I […]

Julep Maven Box Review

  Last month I signed up for the Julep Maven box for a few reasons. 1) I don’t wear a lot of makeup but I do ALWAYS wear nail polish. 2) I love trying new brands and colors. 3) I had recently unsubscribed from my Ipsy bags and was looking for something to fill that […]

Sobo Cafe

I love weekends for brunch. I wish restaurants offered brunch in the evening- I would eat breakfast for dinner every night of the week. Steve and I went to Sobo Cafe for brunch yesterday and it was one of the best brunches I’ve ever had. Decor and ambiance are important factors to me when enjoying […]

Galentine’s Day Surprise

I LOVE Valentine’s day. Even when I was single I would celebrate the holiday by baking treats for my friends and co-workers. Last year I spent V-Day at my local bar with free food, boxes of chocolate, roses, and two of my closest girlfriends. I was so excited when Ashten and Allie decided to create a […]

the day baltimore turned into zombieland

Another snow storm. Another day of working from home. Another batch of snow coming tonight. But this time I was able to take a couple hours off from work and spend some time with the man I love going on an ADVENTURE! And by adventure I mean trekking to Starbucks for coffee and a donut […]
