Can we please talk about Gilmore Girls?


Netflix launched their four-part series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on November 25th. I binged watched the four separate episodes that night… it was like six straight hours in front of the TV. I never get that. Seriously, ask my husband… we ALWAYS watch what he wants. Fortunately, he knew my passion for […]

Family Pictures


I am super excited to have our family pictures taken this year, being the first year a family of three. We got extremely lucky with the weather. Outdoor pictures are always tricky and we couldn’t have asked for a better November afternoon. It was easier to get Rory to smile when she was alone. Evan […]

Dressing for Family Pictures

Lifestyle, Style

Evan and I have never had family pictures taken together. We are not “picture people”. It took us two years before we actually ordered any photographs from our wedding. After having Rory, I made a promise to myself to document her life with pictures. I would hate to think she would be disappointed, later in […]

Winter Beer Round Up


Beer is big in our house… Like ‘bar complete with kegerator in the dining room’ big in our house. I know many people enjoy fun, festive cocktails and mixed drinks but I’ve always been a beer girl. When my husband (boyfriend at the time) was a senior in college, he took a class called ‘Introduction […]

OOTD: Casual Fall look

This year, our fall weather has been sporadic… at best, however, I think Mother Nature finally decided to commit to consistently cooler days.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping


  Cake for Breakfast? Yes, please! Let me start with: Cooking/baking with a 6-month old is challenging. I hadn’t even made it through the streusel topping before I had to switch Rory up into a new entertainment spot. I rotated her through activity saucer, Fisher-Price Sit-Me-Up and her swing all while feeling like a complete […]

Road Trip to Green Bay

Lifestyle, Travel

Packers may have lost the football game but Green Bay wins for hospitality. About four months ago, Evan and I were toying with the idea of taking an Anniversary trip. We tossed around a few ideas before finally coming up with the idea to road trip to Green Bay for the Packers vs Colts football […]

4th Wedding Anniversary


I LOVE November – and November 3rd, especially because it is all about LOVE. Four years ago, I made the best decision of my life. I said “yes” to my best friend and began a new journey as a wife. Rewind 7+ years ago to when I was a junior in college and was invited […]
