brunchin’ at home

October 31, 2017

Oh I can’t tell you how much I love brunching at home. Going out to brunch is great, but when you can stay in your pj’s and then watch a movie in the comfort of your own bed or couch… need I say more? (maybe I shouldn’t let my hubby see this or we won’t be going out to brunch anymore, hehe) Weekends have been crazy for us this year. When we got married two years ago, we quickly got…

Weekend Getaway: NOLA

September 23, 2017

I have been begging for a weekend getaway to New Orleans for a while now. I am absolutely fascinated by the food, the streets, the culture, everything New Orleans. My husband and I snuck out a few years ago and went on a secret road trip to New Orleans and Florida, and we always said we’d have to redo NOLA. It was so much fun! This year we finally did and had such a memorable time. By the end of the trip we were exhausted. We…

Our Fixer Upper: Phase 1

August 30, 2017

Hey guys! So I realize this post is long overdue, but here it is! This will be the first of a few posts about our fixer upper. I want to focus on the different things that happened throughout the 6 intense months we spent working on our house, and when I say intense, I mean really intense. Think HGTV fixer upper, drama, surprises, tears, the whole thing. Now that we moved in to the house, we’ve been taking things slowly and it has definitely…

Our Fixer Upper

July 7, 2017

Last year we were blessed with the opportunity to buy a house. We love(d) living in an apartment where the most we ever had to do was submit a work order online if we had an issue.. it was great, but having something to call yours…that’s even better. Things have changed a lot since we started fixing our home, and now almost one month after officially moving in, we are still working like crazy! We bought what Chip and Joanna…

cocktails + records 4.17

April 2, 2017

April is here and it’s unbelievable how quickly this year is going for us! Do you feel the same way? It’s a good thing for several reasons, but it also makes me anxious. Here’s why… a. I’m a teacher so this means summer vacation is just around the corner (yay!) b. we’re in the middle of renovating our new house and our apartment lease ends by the end of May. That’s next month! Anxiety feels all over right? Lately I’ve…

Apartment Life

March 9, 2017

I have been wanting to share pictures of our place for some time now… but often plans get delayed and replaced with more important things. Like renovating an entire house. Which is also happening! It seems like just yesterday we were moving all of our things out of our first place and into our loft. We were so excited about decorating our loft and as soon as we did, we started planning for the house. It seems like the process of…

Sunday Morning chia pancakes

January 6, 2017

I’m not sure what took longer.. coming up with a good title for this post or actually making the pancakes. I mean seriously, there are so many great things about these pancakes that I found it almost impossible to sum it up into a couple of words. They are my go-to pancakes on a Sunday morning. They are packed with protein so they keep us full when we’re not expected at a Sunday brunch with friends. All you need is a blender…

November 23, 2016
Acai_Berry_Bowl_11

  Let’s talk about the latest health craze. Açaí bowls. How do you say that anyway? Ah-ka-ee … ah-sigh-EE… ah-sah-EE (I’m going with ah-sah-EE.).. Okay I’m kidding, I know how to say it. But seriously… acai bowls are getting some serious attention. I’m seeing them everywhere! Coffee shops, movies, Instagram and everyone is talking about it. I had my first bowl at Jamba Juice a few years ago and I didn’t even realize I was eating a famous Açaí bowl. Lately I’ve noticed they are becoming widely…
