March 17th celebrates the traditional date of death of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day also happens to be celebrated in more countries than any other national festival! Crazy, right?! But for most people, it’s just an excuse to drink green beer, dress like a leprechaun, and eat traditional Irish grub! And an excuse for me to make cute kitschy desserts too! This year, I’m not waiting around to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…I’m making my own pot of gold with these St. Patrick’s Day Golden Coin Cookies!
March is one of my favorite months. No, not because of the green beer, or the gold chocolate coins, but because it’s my birthday month! Biased, I know, but what can I say? Regardless, March also happens to usher in the beginning of spring and after this winter I am SO ready to say goodbye to the cold and snow! (Utah, please stop snowing! We’ve had enough!) If you want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Spring, (my birthday – March 2nd, cough, cough) or just March in general, you can download and color this month’s printable March 2019 calendar coloring page!

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. I was 5 or 6 years old and would sit in the kitchen with my Portuguese grandma, brewing the perfect cup of tea and heating up a slice of warm Portuguese sweet bread with melted butter. Granted, in those days, my tea cup was full of sugar and milk too, but she’s definitely the person who cultivated my love of tea (and sweet bread).
February is almost over (Yay, March, my birthday month!), but I couldn’t let it slip by without letting you guys in on my newest obsessions and the things I’ve been hooked on this month! My picks include the tweets that are getting me through my work day, the best gloss I’ve ever owned, and the newest addition to my bedroom that’s a game changer, plus a few others!
Oscar’s weekend is upon us and whether you’re planning to throw a big blow out party, have a few friends over, or just plan to curl up and watch in your pj’s, I have the EASIEST appetizer for you to add to your party menu! These blackberry, goat cheese and honey appetizers are glam enough to be the star of the show, but they are also delicious! And that golden honey drizzle is definitely Oscar worthy!
I feel like all I did last year was travel. Not that I’m complaining at all. It was amazing, but being on the road constantly can take a toll. On your skin, your sleep, your sanity, and your health! I wasn’t home for more than 3 weeks at a time last year, and because of that, I got a pretty good idea of what items worked for me (and what didn’t), when it came to packing my carry-on bag. I just booked a flight out to Orlando for spring training, so today’s post seemed like the perfect time to share all of my favorite carry-on items with you guys and what to pack for a long flight!
I’ve gotta admit, I have some AMAZING girlfriends in my life. And, although I try to make sure they know how much I appreciate them and their friendship throughout the whole year, I’m alllll about celebrating them for a holiday too! Plus, galentine’s day just gives me another excuse to hang out with them! If you’re throwing a galentine’s day soiree this year, these galentine’s day photo booth props are SO easy to make and take no time at all to put together! And they are SO cute!
I’m definitely more of a stay home and celebrate Valentine’s day kinda girl. I don’t love waiting hours for dinner at a restaurant, or making reservations 3 months in advance, but any excuse to make a delicious dessert to share with someone special….yep, count me in. And this one is a total winner! It’s easy to make, quick to bake, and who doesn’t love a warm cookie with a gooey center? Plus, it’s the perfect size for two! And did I mention red velvet? This red velvet skillet cookie for two just might become your new fave…and for good reason!
