Easy One-Pan Lemon Salmon Dinner

In the midst of moving and packing and renovating while trying to keep life as close to normal a possible, I caved and tried out sheet-pan dinners. And I am IN LOVE! Seriously, best weeknight dinners EVER. Let me first say that I tried the Sunday meal prep plan—make a week’s worth of meals on […]

Home Sweet Home

I’ve been a little lacking in keeping up with this blog since we found out we were moving back home last year. It’s been a whirlwind—hubby’s new job offer  came while we were in Disney last September, and three and a half weeks later we were packed and moved. Easy-peasy, right? Not so much. We […]

Signs of Spring

We are buried under a half-foot of snow in eastern Pennsylvania, but this week still showed some early signs of spring. Yes, I know that technically spring is still over a month away, but a girl can dream of warm, sunny days even in February, right? 😉 Wednesday was beautiful – 61℉ with mostly sunny […]

Fall Apple Desserts

I am a magazine junkie–Southern Living, Cooking Light, Coastal Living, Food Network… You get the idea. In the last week or two, all the September magazines are rolling in, and I am drooling over a lot of the fall recipes–but none more than the desserts. Apples and pumpkin galore! Yum! I will never make it through […]

Hubby and I have felt a little under the weather lately, thanks to a brutal allergy season.  Nothing serious–just the usually stuffy head, sore throat, watery-eyed fun that comes with walking out the front door in the morning. 😉 The other day, we just wanted comfort food for dinner, and what is more comforting when […]

I made changes more than once before realizing I was putting the cart before the horse, ultimately deciding to stick to […]

A Quick Weekend Getaway

Sometimes, you just need to get away, even if it is January. Or, more likely, especially in January. 😉 It is no secret that I could spend all day, every day at the beach, so when Hubby suggested a January getaway to the beach, I jumped at it! After all, Carolina beaches in January aren’t […]

Princess Puppydog

Jon and I don’t have kids–we have a pup.  We didn’t plan it that way, but we love our life and our baby, even if she is a five-year-old dog. 😉 We always planned to have one of us home with the kids once we had them.  The opportunity for me to leave my job […]

Delirious Laughter

I’ve been running around a lot this summer, feeling like I am being pulled in way too many directions at once.  It happens to everyone at some point, and a lot of it is because of my own inability to say no, so I am not complaining.  Besides, I like to be busy! 🙂 Unfortunately, […]

Ten Years Already!!

I’m not really here–really I’m not.  In actuality, I am off with my hubby today, celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary! I plan to be back on Wednesday with a regular post, after we enjoy a long weekend celebrating our anniversary and his 34th birthday.  🙂 Just for fun, I figured I would share a post I […]
