Cake Batter Rice Krispies

So, funfetti is my thing. Not like one of those things that I started to like a few years ago when it got super popular. Like a love that started years ago when I asked (at like age 8) if I could have funfetti cake at my wedding. And for your information, I had the most amazing pink confetti cake at our wedding a few years ago. I got our cake lady to make us another one for our 1…

Beach Pic Gallery Wall

I have been obsessed with Gray Malin aerial beach shots for a few years now but once I realized my vision for this wall, I realized that  buying multiple of his prints was just going to be too expensive (especially considering I have a thousand other decor items I want to purchase for our house!!!). I decided to do some scouring on Etsy and I ended up finding some beach shots I really liked that had a similar feel. I first wanted…

Spicy Shrimp & Orzo

Happy Friday! I’ve had the cooking  (and baking) bug lately and boy, have I been spending a lot of time in the kitchen! I feel like every recipe I have made recently has had the following: garlic, tomatoes, and basil. I tend to burn myself out on foods by eating them all the time and then can’t even look at them for awhile. Summer is coming to an end soon (or else I’m anticipating that!) so hopefully that will come…

Whipped Goat Cheese

I feel like I was late to the game with my goat cheese love. I know this is shocking, but I was first introduced to a legit cheese board post college. I guess in college, no one was inviting me over for a fancy cheese plate and a game of beer pong–although that sounds like an ideal night (but champagne pong for me!)!  Anyway, I remember a few years ago, my roomie at the time (and BFF) told me she…

March – July Reads (+podcasts)

(my favorite spot to read in the house right now–and apparently B’s fave, too) My reading started off with a bang in January and February (well, sort of) and then totally tapered off after that. I blame the bachelorette, housewives, and southern charm for stealing my brain cells and time (#worthit though). Thankfully, I had a few trips here and there and was actually able to finish a few books. I have been, however, super into podcasts recently. Just ask…

Peach Ice Cubes + Prosecco

Happy Friday, loves! We made it!!!! I don’t know why, but work weeks in the summer are extra long. Probably because I long for the days of being a kid with zero responsibilities and unlimited eating and pool time. I seriously can’t believe summer is coming to an end though. I live in a world where once August hits, summer is over. And then August becomes this weird time of hating the heat and longing for Fall but feeling like…

Scenes from the Weekend

I had full intentions of writing a long post on what I’ve been up to lately (since i’ve been a bit MIA around here) but to be honest, Nick and I just started watching the Affair (Season 3), and i’m pretty sucked in right now!!! So sucked in, that it’s taken be 45 minutes to write these two sentences, ha! I could eat lunch (and dessert) and McLain’s every day. Their mountain munch cookie and chicken salad sandwich are SO…

Browned Butter Cookie Bars

Tonight was hometowns on the Bachelorette–literally my favorite episode of every season! I wish I could share my thoughts on the episode but it’s almost midnight and I’m coming off of a pizza/sugar high so my brain is pretty fried. And let’s be real, you all want to get right to the good stuff–this recipe. I love browned butter and the flavor is so good. Added bonus, these bars could not be easier to make. Hopefully you all enjoy, too!…

Mexican Fiesta Recipes

Happy weekend, friends! It’s finalllllly Friday. This is my first full week of work in awhile and it definitely dragged on. My weekend plans are pretty low key (which I’m pretty pumped about!)–dinner with gal pals, workouts, catching up on tv shows (hello, Real Housewives of NYC & Very Cavalari), and pool time! Since I’ve been back from Santa Barbara I’ve been in the cooking mood…and not the healthy type of cooking. So clearly, Mexican has been by go-to. I…

Santa Barbara Outfits

I always joke on trips that my outfits are brought to you solely by Forever 21 and Nordstrom, ha! Like most gals, I love having new outfits for a trip. But, I hardly EVER wear the outfit again post vacay so I never want to spend a ton of money on the outfits…thus, where F21 comes in. And then my staples (jeans, shoes, purses, etc.) that I plan to actually wear again normally come from Nordstrom. Well, because, my mom…
