Brooklyn Cooking Weekend Recap

It’s funny, thinking back to last year, I remember being a bit disappointed I couldn’t go out to a fancy restaurant and drink lots of cocktails for NYE.  This year?  I was so excited for a night on the couch with Matt. I planned the menu and Matt went and got all the groceries on Saturday, so we could relax and enjoy Sunday a bit more. I joined the Y last week, so I checked out a total body conditioning…

Exploring Manhattan + Date Night

Restaurant Reviews

Happy holidays! Christmas crept up on me this year. Matt and I wanted to explore Manhattan a bit because everyone recommended checking out the Christmas markets and decor. We kind of blew it with timing though as we waited until the last Saturday before Christmas – rookie mistake. Emerson seemed nervous on the subway and held on to her stroller:) We made our way to Rockefeller center to see the tree, and quickly realized that the crowds were miserable, especially…

Bald Head to Brooklyn

Life

Hey y’all, So sorry for the lack of posts. Thanks for your patience as I get my life together. We spent 10 days at my parents house on Bald Head before we arrived in Brooklyn. It was a much-needed rest after the craziness of the fall and moving out of our house.    I absolutely loved being away from cars and having nothing but a grocery trip on the agenda each day. I fall more in love with the island…

Weekend in Ojai

Travel

Hello! We had the privilege of attending a wedding in the beautiful Ojai, California this past weekend. We stayed at the Ojai Valley Inn and the resort was stunning! I think I was so focused on packing for this trip plus all the wedding festivities, that I wasn’t anticipating how gorgeous the surrounding area would be. Expectations exceeded. We arrived on Thursday afternoon, and there was a welcome party at a neat little picnic shop. Everything was outdoors and the…

Kicking Off Summer Break

Life The Working World

And just like that another school year is complete! I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t even had time to think about summer. But now it’s here and I have 10 weeks off with my sweet girl! Matt’s parents were visiting last weekend and we did a lot of eating around town. We finally made it to Pecan Lodge after living in Dallas for 4 years! The meat lived up to the hype. Although, we skipped the main line by…

The Fun After The Storm

Life

Hello from a rainy day on the couch. No school for Easter! Our little family had a fabulous weekend after a really tough week. I got some kind of food poisoning/stomach bug and ended up on the floor of the CVS minute clinic with a trash bag. Then it took a long time for me to recover. I think being sick while taking care of a baby is the hardest thing I’ve had to do since becoming a mom. Don’t’…

Solid Food + Friends

Amazing Restaurants

Hello! I’m sorry that it’s been a while. I’m sure you saw that the blog disappeared – I have no idea how I got hacked, but it was not pretty. Almost every file was corrupt, and after hiring one company that couldn’t fix it, I had to spend a small fortune to have the site cleaned from head to toe. Is there seriously someone who sits around and gets pleasure out of this kind of thing? Anyway, it was way…

Grammie & Pop in Town

Uncategorized

Hello! We had a fabulous weekend over here! My parents stopped in Dallas for a quick visit on their way back from Cabo. Matt, unfortunately, got stuck working in New York on Thursday and Friday, so it was nice to have some company. Thursday night, we strolled to the local pub and then I made an easy dinner with WF thai shrimp burgers. On Friday, my mom and I enjoyed our favorite pastime – the mall:) Emerson got a bunch…

V-Day Date

Uncategorized

Happy Valentine’s Day! I feel lucky to have two Valentines this year:) Poor Emerson has to get her 4 month shots today, which is not very fun on what is supposed to be a love-ly day. It’s cold and rainy here and it’s my day at home, so it’s nice to be warm and cozy inside. Matt and I celebrated over the weekend, but I’m going to make him a meatloaf tonight. I feel like such a 1950’s homemaker wife…
