Caramel Apples

I can now officially cross “making homemade Caramel Apples” off of my bucket list. I’ve wanted to make these for years but the recipes online have always seemed so daunting. You can make the caramel from scratch, but it takes awhile. Martha Stewart has a good recipe, if you want to go that route. But truthfully, I’m all for […]

Painting Pumpkins

Nothing says Halloween like pumpkins! Pumpkin patches, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin recipes and of course pumpkin carving. To be honest, I think I am over the whole pumpkin carving thing… It’s always frustrating trying to make the perfect design and I’m not into cleaning up big messes these days so this year, I painted! Pinterest has a […]

Throwback Thursday: My 30th Birthday

So, I turned THIRTY this year. I had a bit of a freakout realizing I am no longer in the 20-29 range when filling out a registration check box for something. Thankfully, I ended up getting over that pretty quickly. We had an amazing weekend in Maryland and we have a lot to look forward to […]

21 Weeks

Baby A is 21 weeks today and is about the length of a carrot or the size of a pomegranate, depending on where you read. Here’s what Baby A has been up to this week: Baby A now weighs about three-quarters of a pound (well, I’m guessing she weighs more than that because at my 17 week appointment she was supposed […]

Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies

I haven’t wanted to be anywhere near food prep since June when I found out I was pregnant, but last weekend I got the urge to bake. What did I make? Cookies, of course! I still don’t want to cook meat (sorry Adam) but sweets, I can handle.  I usually only see the blossom cookies at […]

Fall Tablescape (on a budget)

I’ve always enjoyed decorating for Christmas but it wasn’t until we actually bought a dining room table (city living) that I liked decorating for fall as well. We don’t really have any dinner parties (confession: we eat on the couch) but there’s something about having a beautifully decorated table that makes me happy! I could […]

Oh… Hey!

It’s been 7 months since we last spoke, sorry about that! We had a ton of stuff going on in our life (which I may or may not go into more detail about) and blogging had to hit the back burner. Now that things are settling down (uh, kinda) maybe I should give you a […]

Valentine’s Day {Menu} at Home

Since we are expecting a nor’easter (which is the norm around here lately) tomorrow we’ve decided to cancel our reservations at Catch and enjoy dinner at home for Valentine’s Day. Adam will be taking over the appetizers & main course parts of the meal and I’ll be in charge of the drinks + dessert. Here is […]

DIY Valentine’s Day Gift

Adam and I tend not to make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day. Fighting the crowds and paying for overpriced meals when its negative degrees outside just isn’t as fun when you’re old 😉 . I love crafting from mason jars because they are so easy to work with. I made the good news […]
