Keep Calm and Party On // A Stress-Free Cheese Board

November 30, 2016

It’s no secret that I’m not a fantastic cook. Despite my efforts and desires, my talents are elsewhere (think baked goods and such). But if there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s throw a party. And, sure, I may enlist the help of others for the ‘heavy lifting,’ but I will throwdown with […]

Halloween Wrap Up // 2016

November 16, 2016

Hey! Remember Halloween?? You know, that pseudo-Holiday two-ish weeks ago? Well, as per the norm, life went off the rails. And I forgot to ever post any pictures of our Halloween shenanigans. But if there are no pictures, did it really happen?? Haaaa! Of course, I kid! But for real. We had family in town […]

Kentucky Round Up!

August 23, 2016

Hey! Did you know we went to Kentucky (or as Ari calls it ‘Tucky) three weeks ago!? Yep! We did! And honestly, the last two-plus weeks haven’t been hard. We’ve just been busy. And I’ve had a hard time concentrating on pretty much everything (helloooooo, three different to-do lists that need to be condensed!). But […]

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 […]

crafts, drafts, + food trucks //

May 25, 2016

I have about a gazillion things on my blog to-do list right now. But I would be remiss not to mention this past weekend — regardless of the crazy to-do list! On Wednesday of last week I sent out an S.O.S. to my mama. It has been a few weeks since I’ve seen her, which […]

Kid-Friendly Kitchen Crafts!

April 14, 2016

When I found out I was going to be a mom, I had visions of what Motherhood would be. You know, not just rainbows and butterflies. Or even meltdowns and panic attacks. Honestly, I had visions and dreams of coloring, painting, and other crafts! You know, typical kid stuff, right?? Wrong. Oh-so-wrong! It turns out boys […]

Weekend Wrap Up //

April 5, 2016

After a full week of [part-time] work last week, I was oh-so happy to see the weekend! Not because my week was hard (it was fun and exhausting, but not hard!), but because my Mama was coming to visit from Kentucky! Fortunately (and unfortunately) by the time Mimi arrived Friday night, Ari and Chad were […]

The Only Banana Bread Recipe You Will Ever Need

March 30, 2016

Since I lost my job in December (eek – still stings a little to say!) I’ve been upping my domesticity game in a major way. Not only have I been keeping myself on a ‘cleaning schedule’ [ugh — that sounds terribly domestic], but I’ve also been trying to stay on a meal schedule of some […]

Pressure Cooker Mac and Cheese

March 2, 2016

Well, friends, it’s been a few months since I received my awesome electric pressure cooker Christmas present from Chad. I’ll admit — there are only a few things that I’ve perfected. But that’s just it — I’ve perfected them. Albeit, one of those things is rice; but we’ve always eaten a lot of rice. So […]

Red + White // Wrap Up

February 3, 2016

The Arthritis Foundation of Northeast Ohio‘s annual fundraiser in Akron, Red & White on Thursday Night, is easily my favorite event of the entire year! Heck, even having just given birth, I desperately wanted to still attend. So last Thursday, at just 5 days old, Remy, Chad and I ventured to Quaker Station at Quaker […]
