Yesterday was our 4th wedding anniversary - yay! We didn't kill each other yet! We celebrated by getting takeout from our favorite restaurant and having a quiet dinner at home. And we also decided to plan a special trip for our 5th anniversary next year - we hope to go to Europe! Getting to use my … Continue reading Happy Anniversary To Us
We've been baking and cooking and cleaning and wrapping...tis two days before Christmas and the craziness has arrived!! I can't wait to have a few days off next week... Merry Christmas everyone!!
I'm currently enjoying the perfect Sunday - curled up on the couch with my feet up, watching football, and relaxing after having one of the most full and fun weekends I've had in awhile. Truth be told, I have not been feeling very well lately (Crohn's decided it was going to flare on me), and … Continue reading Fall Weekend Fun
Sundays are for al fresco dining - french toast with strawberries, vanilla syrup, and powdered sugar, with cranberry mimosas. And most of all, for catching up with best friends you love like sisters. Hashtag blessed?
With the help of friends, family, and poor recruits who didn't know what they were in for, this past Memorial Day weekend, I hosted a nautical baby shower for my best friends, Rachel and Shayne, who are expecting their first child - a little boy, due to arrive in August. Rachel picked a nautical, under-the-sea theme … Continue reading Ahoy, It’s a Boy! Nautical Baby Shower

I still remember the gasp from the audience when we walked out at the grand march, haha. Oh, to be young again. I remember the reporter for the Daily Courier telling Russ to tip his hat to … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Senior Prom Edition

But I'm looking forward to it so much, mainly because Rach will be in town! I spent today packing everything up, finishing crafts, and … Continue reading Planning a Nautical Baby Shower
This recipe for Italian Easter Pie - also known as Easter Pizza, Ricotta Pie, or Italian Pizza Rustica - has been one of my favorite recipes all my life. The ones you only get to eat once a year always are, right? If you're Italian like me, you are most likely some form of Catholic, … Continue reading Italian Easter Pie Recipe
It's nearly 10 at night, and I'm just sitting down from a really busy weekend. Whew. Feels good to put my feet up! The weather has FINALLY broken here in Pennsylvania, and it looks like spring might actually arrive soon! It was around 40 degrees and sunny today, and that was just amazing. We spent the … Continue reading Spaghetti Dinner Sunday & Weekend Fun
As a child, my favorite food was undoubtedly macaroni and cheese. In high school, I survived by eating the Kraft version for dinner while my mom worked (which still holds a special place in my heart, mystery ingredients and orange food coloring be damned). But there is nothing like gooey, creamy, homemade mac 'n cheese … Continue reading Easy Homemade Mac ‘n Cheese
