Feel GOOD Friday…Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day everyone! We have had the absolute best weather this week. It has really made me appreciate being back outside and love my job because I get to walk everywhere.  This weekend we plan to work on the outside of our house. Putting down some mulch in our flowerbeds and cutting the grass….

Get ready Japan, here we come!

I am writing this blog from 37,000 feet in the air on our way to Japan. My blogs these next few days are going to focus on our trip and our daily excursions.  I love this blog because I can share whatever I want and I will always have it to preserve the memories I’m…

Certainly a BLESSING…

I posted this quote the other day to Facebook that said “Everyone that comes into your life is either a blessing or a lesson.”  I liked the idea of this blessing/lesson.  I feel like I am constantly meeting new people with my job and sometimes the connections I form with certain ones make me appreciate…

Feel GOOD Friday!

As I previously shared–I went to school for teaching, but didn’t exactly love being a classroom teacher.  I still find myself fascinated with teaching and I am always reading articles and blogs about teaching.  I still get excited when I pass by a teaching store and sometimes if I have some extra time I do a…

My Top 5 Skincare Splurges (for your Face)!

Please tell me it is almost Friday!  This morning, as I got up and went about my morning routine and tried to make myself a cup of coffee in the Keurig, I made the coffee, however I seemed to have forgotten to put the cup under the Keurig.  Thankfully I realized after about half the…

Getting the best photos of your wedding day…

I was fortunate enough to have Anne Lee, as my wedding photographer.  Leading up to our wedding, Anne and I chatted back and forth, organized our engagement photo session in NYC, and discussed and planned the wedding day pretty much down to the minute.  It was so helpful that Anne had photographed many weddings prior…

Short Ribs are DELICIOUS!

As I shared yesterday, I tried out a new Short Rib recipe on Sunday and I have to say it was pretty delicious and easy–what could be better?  I, initially, was planning to try a recipe that my college roomie, Michelle, shared with me, but I already had the ingredients for this one—but I will…

Decorating our first home…

Wow! This week has felt so incredibly long for some reason, so I am happy to finally have Friday here.  We don’t really have anything crazy going on this weekend.  Probably just working around our house.  We initially had planned to paint our deck this weekend, but the power washer was not cooperating yesterday when…

Pumpkin PIE Cake…figure that one out…

One of my all time favorite Fall recipes is Pumpkin Pie Cake.  I actually got the recipe from one of the teachers I used to teach with in Florida (one day I will tell the story of how I was once a teacher…in Florida…)! Anyways, my sister mentioned this weekend after baby yoga (which was…

Pumpkin picking and Baby YOGA that’s my weekend jam!

I just love the Fall.  The leaves are so pretty and I feel like everyone is in a better mood.  I also am obsessed with leggings and boots, so the Fall lends itself to lots of days in these clothing staples! I also love all the traditions/events that come in the Fall–PSU football, Giants Football,…
