Explore Hilton Head //

September 4, 2017

We returned from our first big vacation as a family of four just over a week ago. We travelled over 11 hours to get to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where we met up with my mom and dad (Mimi + Poppy), and my sister and her family. So there were 6 adults, two babies, […]

Day Tripping // Louisville, Kentucky

August 14, 2017

Life has been hella crazy lately. I’d like to say we’ve been busy travelling the globe, but that would be semi inaccurate. I mean, we have been travelling the midwest rather thoroughly. 😛 😛 And one of the great things about living in the Midwest is that we can travel a few hours and be […]

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 […]

Road Trip Must-Haves

August 25, 2015

This summer I’ve travelled solo with Moosh a couple of times. Well, guys, I’m a freaking pro these days! And we’re taking one last small trip. And while I’m putting together our travel necessities, I decided to share our go-to road trip list! 1. A LeapPad (and/or iPad). We bring both. Especially on a long […]

life lately // a wrap up

May 15, 2015

Life has been crazy pants over the last month or so. But isn’t that kind of always the case when you’re working and raising a toddler and taking care of family responsibilities and training for races and trying to actually fit in some fun, too? Moosh started a new session of tumbling at the YMCA. […]

our 3rd anniversary //

April 21, 2015

I’m keeping it short and sweet today. It’s our THIRD wedding anniversary! That’s right… on this day three years ago we were getting couples massages at the Inn By The Sea in Cape Elizabeth, Maine — just outside of Portland. I had my hair and makeup done, and we met our photographer (who would act […]

Buffa-LOVE // Part 2 // Ohhh Canada!!!

April 30, 2014

I promise we did more than just eat on our mini-vacay (although from Part 1 I can understand how you might assume otherwise)! I’ve been trying to go through pictures since last week and I couldn’t get through all of them until today. What a WEEK! 🙂 Saturday, our first official (and only) FULL day […]

Buffa-LOVE // Part 1

April 27, 2014

I spent the better half of my young adult years in New York State. First in Buffalo, then in Syracuse. Basically everywhere but NYC. And if you think that NYC is the ONLY place to be in the great state of NY, you’re wrong. You’re completely wrong. Last weekend Chad, Ari & I made the […]

get fit! // fitness update

July 26, 2013

As expected, being on vacation hasn’t really had a negative impact on my diet + exercise regimen. After last weeks collosul failure in the exercise department, and the crazy amount of extra moving I’ve been doing from merely not sitting at a desk all day, I feel great! Food // We’ve been eating most meals […]

Dear Vacation: Please be full of sleep. And long, hot, showers. And naps poolside. Hell, naps in general would be nice. Please be full of delicious food. And sangria. And ice cream. Please let the weather be wonderful. Not too hot. Not too humid. Just perfect, would be perfect. Please let us all survive the […]
