Two at the ZOO

Gosh I love a good party. Last year for my daughter’s first birthday we threw a Hawaiian themed shindig at our house. It was amazing and SO much fun. The even better part was the weather. It was 90 degrees in April–couldn’t have fit the theme better. This year was a different story it was…

Be your own cheerleader…

After almost two weeks back at work under my belt, I found myself feeling eager to share some thoughts. It feels SO good to be back at work. Sometimes I feel guilty saying that because I really cherished and enjoyed every second I had home when I was laid off from my previous position. I…

Lovely Long Weekend in London…

My blog will be taking a little bit of a travel turn today, as I have just spent 4.5 days in London! What an amazing city! I am so in love. The people are so friendly and kind, and the food we tried was delicious! I flew in Thursday morning on a direct flight from…

My favorite book…ever!

I firmly believe that when you find something good, like something really good, you should shout it from the rooftops and share it. For me that something really good, maybe even really great is the book Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. To be completely honest with you I have no idea how I…

Practicing Gratitude

I saw this amazing post on Facebook from Robin Roberts and she said she believes “optimism is a muscle that gets stronger with use,” and I just can’t stop thinking about it. It was such a great way to look at optimism and made me realize and reflect a lot. A few weeks ago, I…

Happy International Women’s Day…Feel GOOD Friday!

What a great day to be a woman! I love the idea of having an international women’s day. After all, none of us would be here if it weren’t for a strong woman that carried us in her belly for 40 weeks! I still get amazed by reading that number. 40 weeks is a long…

Fairy Bite Cookies…Cute and Delicious!

So, these cookies can’t exactly be filed under the healthy recipe tab, but they are worth the calories and so addicting.  My Mother-in-law made these before, and decided to make them again for Miranda’s shower on Sunday.  They are really cute with the rainbow sprinkles and look fun on a platter.  They taste like a…

Weekend Recap…Filled with Love

We had some seriously crazy weather this weekend!!! Our screen door is a little bent out of shape from all the wind, but luckily it’s still semi-working.  We are so thankful to our neighbor for coming over and tending to our house, as we were up in CT.  He chased our trash cans around the…

Aspiring Gardener

One of my favorite things about living in Summit is that we have some outdoor space.  We live on a pretty small lot, but we think it is just perfect.  It is just enough grass where we feel like we have some, however it is not too much to the point that we have to…

Holiday Shower Baskets…Wedding Wednesday!

This was supposed to be posted last week, but I made a mistake!  So here it is today… My shower was such a fun day!! I felt so lucky to have so many people come out to celebrate our wedding.  Dan was there to eat the yummy lunch and help me unwrap all the generous…
