Halloween Party Playlist

Tis’ the season for haunted happenings! Whether you’re hosting a gruesome dinner party, a costume contest, or a pumpkin carving party, you definitely need the right music to set the mood. And it just so happens that I cooked up a cauldron full of hits and created a Halloween Party playlist that’s guaranteed to wake…

Family Halloween Books

It’s no surprise around here that I love holidays and the traditions they bring. We’ve started a lot of different traditions in our house, but one of my favorites is the seasonal books that I bring out for each major holiday. I remember my mom doing the same thing when I was growing up and…

Homemade Root Beer Recipe

I find that people either love or hate root beer…there’s no in between. I’m a fellow root beer lover and especially love it during the month of October! It’s become one of my Halloween traditions to make this homemade root beer recipe each year and it pairs perfectly with a good Halloween movie and some…

Halloween Reading List

One of my goals this year was to fit in some more time to read and I’m happy to report that I’m making some serious headway on my list (you can find out more about that here). But this month I want to try to add a few spooky and seasonal titles to my finished…

Cantaloupe and Lime Agua Fresca

One of the best things about summer is definitely all of the fresh produce and seasonal fruit that you can find in so many different places. The grocery store, the farmers market, fruit stands on the side of the road, or even in your own backyard! I also love finding new ways to incorporate them…

Portuguese Dinner Party: Cocktails and Appetizers

This week I’m taking you guys on a trip to Portugal. No, not to the actual country of Portugal, but helping you experience a little taste of what it’s all about through food and drinks (and dessert, of course). Before I moved to Charlotte, I hosted a Portuguese dinner party for a few friends and…

Summer Sandals

The 80’s and 90’s were good to me, because they gave me the infamous jelly sandal. I wore those jellies into the ground and had a few different colors. Pink, purple, and my favorite frosty (semi-sheer) gray pair. I lived in those babies from May to September. And apparently I haven’t outgrown my jelly love,…

New Orleans Travel Guide

New Orleans is a hard city to put into words. It’s definitely unique and full of history, culture, scandal, and personality. LOTS of personality. But it was on my travel bucket list for two different reasons. Food and music. Since we weren’t taking any international trips this year, it seemed like a great time to…

We’re Back! (With a New Website!)

Honestly, I have no clue where the last year and a half went. Not only was the world dealing with an insane pandemic, but our everyday routines changed, social lives changed, jobs changed, my wardrobe changed (sweat pants for life), AND on top of all that we were knee deep and living in the middle…

Christmas Cocktail Party Playlist

Christmas is right around the corner and although I won’t be shaking up festive drinks or making fancy appetizers for friends this year, I’m still going to imagine the party that will be going down next year, complete with this Christmas cocktail party playlist blaring through the speakers! And, until then, I’m going to dance…

Printable Holiday ‘Elf’ Coffee Gift Card Holder

I’ve been trying to share this project for the last week, but I’ve been dealing with rainy and overcast weather here in Charlotte and the lighting just wasn’t cooperating. But I finally got a break and was able to shoot the printable holiday ‘Elf’ coffee gift card holder this morning, just in time for all…

Printable Winter Activity Checklist

I’m one of those people that lives for a holiday (you either love us or hate us). I’m the friend who’s always planning new activities, looking up fun events, or planning a new adventure, all while simultaneously trying to get everyone else to go and do them with me. I try to squeeze in as…

Master Bathroom Renovation Plans

Guys, big things are starting to happen at the house and I finally feel like I can see the light at the end of the renovation tunnel. It’s been a long 4 months so far, but we’re getting there. We’ve given ourselves a deadline of Christmas, so it’s time to really push through and get…

Printable Halloween Candy Wrappers

We’re probably not trick or treating this year, but we are still trying to make Halloween just as fun at our house. I’m going to plan a fun little scavenger hunt and I plan on having lots of candy around the house too! But instead of the usual candy and chocolate, I’m going to dress…

Our Napa Elopement

One year ago (a few days ago) me and Josh were eloping in Napa, California. Still the best decision we made (both eloping and marrying each other 😉 ) And now, a year later I realized that I haven’t shared many of our weddings photos or our video with you guys! It’s always fun and…

Weekend Road Trip Playlist

Fall is one of my very favorite times to get in the car, roll down the windows and drive. Either toward a fun destination for a weekend road trip, or just to see the leaves changing colors and to take in the crisp fall air in your own neighborhood. (It also usually involves me tracking…
