Life Lately // June 2016

June 3, 2016

This post originally started as a “weekend wrap up” … OVER A MONTH AGO! Like, I’m talking APRIL. But life just got extra busy and the sleep started to get even harder to come by. So I was failing at putting words into sentences. Heck, most of the time I’m still struggling to put logical sentences […]

farewell 2015

December 31, 2015

Looking back on my photos from 2015 (because, let’s face it — that’s the easiest + quickest way to glance back), it’s clear that my year was comprised of the following: Moosh playing. At parks, at Cafe O’Play, at home, etc. We definitely had no shortage of playing in 2015! Cooking. Me cooking, specifically. Which […]

December, I’ve got BIG plans for you.

December 2, 2013

  I’m not certain that the words “I’m so excited for December” have been uttered from my mouth since I was a kid. Wait – scratch that. Probably in college when I wanted to go home for break. Regardless, this year is bound to be far more exciting than any other December for our household! […]

December 20, 2010

I’m in a cookie coma. Not from eating them, but from baking them. I made about 10 dozen cookies. On accident. I shouldn’t have doubled the recipe. Oops. I wish I had more neighbors to give cookies to, because I only gave them to two neighbors. And now we’re stuck with dozens and dozens […]

fabulous oatmeal cookies.

December 7, 2010

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this in the past, but I come from a baking family.  My mother is a baker. She has been since before I was born. Wedding cakes, graduation cakes, cookies, cannolis {yum!}. You name it. She bakes them. I attribute this to my love of baking.  Make me cook dinner, […]

true story.

July 28, 2010

BF is out of town for work today and tomorrow. This is pretty much the first time we’ve been apart since I moved back from Syracuse. It’s going to be weird, to say the least, to sleep in a big bed all by my lonesome! True story. In an effort to make me feel better […]
