Raspberry Pound Cake Truffles

Happy New Years Eve everyone! Anyone heading to a party and want to take along a little dessert? If not, tuck this one away to try out later. This was my first time making truffles and it won’t be the last. When it comes to baked goods, I am typically drawn to chocolate in one […]

What to Wear on NYE?

Well 2013 has just about run its course and now it’s time to celebrate a new year. We’ve had our share of crazy NYE bashes getting all dolled up and carrying on until all hours of the night and we’ve also had plenty of NYE’s spent relaxing at home trying our best to stay awake […]

High Five for Friday

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! We are slowly coming down off of the Christmas rush. We celebrated Christmas Eve at my in-laws with a fantastic dinner followed by presents galore. My sister spent the night at our house on Christmas Eve so she was with us to celebrate the next morning […]

Christmas Photos

With Christmas being tomorrow, I thought I would share some of my favorite shots from our holiday photo shoot. I am fortunate to have an extremely talented photographer for a cousin, Amanda of Amanda Kirkham Photography. If only she weren’t located in Lancaster, PA I’d be taking much more advantage of her talent! But for […]

Bow Top

I can’t think of a much more festive top for this week than one covered in bows. They make everything a bit more pretty and turn an ordinary top into one that truly stands out. This top came from JCrew and with their crazy sales going on you can get it for a steal! Oh, […]

High Five for Friday

It’s Friday! What a fun, busy week we had around here! I finished up my Christmas shopping , attended a mini retelling of the Christmas story at Jack’s preschool and enjoyed some birthday festivities. School is out until after New Years, so now my work’s really cut of for me! Here are a few shots […]

Tuxedo Top

Let me start by thanking you all for the many Birthday wishes you sent my way yesterday! It’s hard to not feel special with all of that love coming my way! Now, moving on to the outfit. It’s amazing the marketing that blogs do for the economy in general. I never noticed this top until […]

Guess whose Birthday it is…

Okay, okay, it’s mine! But did you have any idea that I also share my Birthday with Brad Pitt (yeah, that’s right!), Christina Aguilera, Steven Spielberg and Katie Holmes? Somehow I didn’t end up on the big screen, hmm. 32 years ago my mother welcomed me into the world with a bruised tailbone and hives […]

Peanut Butter Bars

I know I should be posting some cookie recipes being that Christmas is next week, but honestly I’d take these bars over (or in addition to) cookies any day! Talk about an easy recipe. There are only five ingredients and no baking is required! If you allow yourself a good hour for them to chill […]

Winter Wonderland

Anyone else enjoy a little (or a ton) of snow this past weekend? It put a damper on some of our plans, but lucky for me, my sister got snowed-in at our place. In her case it means I got to feed her, blow-out her hair and dress her up in my clothes…come to think […]
