The Best Baby Stuff

Baby Shopping

Now that I’m a year+ into this whole baby thing, I wanted to compile a list of the gear that we can’t live without. Uppababy Cruz stroller – I’ve tried the Nuna Tavo, Maclaren umbrellas, and BOB (which I love for running) and nothing beats the features and maneuverability of the Cruz. Back when I was loading it in and out of the car, it was super easy to fold, relatively light weight, and so easy to use with the…

Shopping

School is out and summer is here! We kicked things off with a visit from my parents! We had such a fun, relaxed trip with lots of eating and shopping. On Friday we stayed in and enjoyed drinks on the balcony. It was nice to take it easy at the end of the week and catch up with my parents. Saturday, we got up and headed south for a 3ish mile hike at the Cedar Ridge Preserve. It was hot,…

FIG & Friends in Charleston

Restaurants Shopping Travel

I had the pleasure of traveling to Charleston this weekend for my winter break! Matt and I met our good friends from Boston for a short getaway. While we picked Charleston because we thought it’d be warmish (soo cold for the south), we really wanted to go there to eat! Our friends love food as much as we do, so we did a lot of sharing! After lovely drinks on a heated roof deck called Stars, we headed to FIG…

Reebok Skyscape at Kohl’s

Clothing Shopping The Working World

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Reebok. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.” I’ve seen quite a few bloggers review the Reebok Skyscape, so I was really excited to get the opportunity to try out a pair!  I received a Kohl’s giftcard so that I could order them online. Kohl’s only had pink and black left in my size, so I…

Thoughts from a Thursday

Cooking Ramblings Shopping

-The sun’s out after days and its glorious. Those post-apocalyptic scenarios where the sun doesn’t shine anymore are my worse nightmare. -Matt had to travel this week, so I ate lots of bowls with toppings for dinner. My usual go-to combos over quinoa are: roasted broccoli, nuts, and veggie burger; black beans, corn, roasted sweet potatoes, avocado, salsa; mushrooms, carrots, spicy sausage, and Indian simmer sauce. This new one I had last night was incredible and included cranberries, sweet potatoes…

Life Ramblings Shopping

Time is flying faster than I can ever remember. I’ve become one of those people who clicks on all the ads for clutches and wedges on the sides of webpages. The internet knows just what I’m looking for these days, and if it’s not wedding related, it’s spring browsing or unnecessary travel accessories. Fish tacos: never as good at home as in restaurants. But, nothing that an airplane bottle of Jose in a homemade margarita can’t fix. Spring break: it’s…

Baltimore & Back

Life Shopping Travel

I’m back from a girls weekend with my grandmother and my mom! The weekend was quite relaxing and we did lots of eating and talking. I got word on Twitter that Friday was national margarita day, so I asked the bartender at the retirement home bistro to make me one on the rocks. She actually made it martini style with a sugar rim and it was oh-so-strong! My grandma enjoyed a bloody mary. We sat around with her friends and…

To Grandmother’s House

Shopping Travel

Hey there, I spent the weekend visiting my grandmother in Baltimore! My mom and I flew up together to fit in a quick visit before the holidays. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the airport, and then arrived just in time for Friday night dessert and cava. My grandma loves deserts too and she had fresh cream puffs for us from a local bakery and a chocolate cake with wonderful vanilla buttercream. It was so nice to have a…
