Peach Cobbler

What happens when Trader Joe’s is stocked on peaches and you find yourself at home on a rainy afternoon? Peach Cobbler would be the answer.  The stars aligned, both girls napped at the same time and I had just enough time to tackle this recipe. It’s a good one, I promise ;) Peach Cobbler via […]

Sleeveless Sweater

Fall is most certainly in the air. The leaves are changing, the temperatures have been perfect, and I just discovered my new favorite latte at Starbucks, toasted graham (sorry pumpkin, dare I say you’re starting to over do it for me?!).  I’ve been on a kick lately of pairing my fall pieces with light denim. […]

Loving Lately: Capes/Ponchos

As I was looking through my closet the other day, I came across this poncho that I wore last year. Since fall has officially arrived, I’m all the more ready to start layering up! The poncho/cape trend is one I plan on wearing out. Honestly, what’s better than wrapping yourself in a beautiful blanket?! And […]

Toaster Strudel

Toaster Strudel’s are one of those foods that feel nostalgic to me. I haven’t had one in ages, but I can remember exactly how they taste. I loved finding them in my mom’s freezer and looked forward to pouring that tiny icing packet on top of the freshly toasted strudel, yum! Well, when Cooking Classy […]

Versatile Dress

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend. I came down with the dreaded change of season cold/ sore throat yesterday and am hoping it decides to pass quickly! Here’s an outfit I pulled together for a cookout at my parents house. Remember that vest I found at Target? Well this dress got thrown […]

Quick Trip

This week has been a bit of a whirlwind. With school events, sporting events, our anniversary and a quick trip to NYC, Friday arrived in no time! Jack had a meeting in the city that happened to fall on our anniversary so as I often do, I tagged along and brought Audrey for her first […]

Fireplace Revamp

Today I wanted to share with you one of our recent projects around the house in case any of you have something similar. Our home was built in the 90’s and the fireplace won’t let you forget that! We have plans to retile it as well (as you can see some samples I was looking […]


Weather seems to be all over the place these days. Last week we were nearing the 90’s and this weekend that temperature dropped by somewhere around 20 degrees! We’ll be back into the 80’s as the week goes on, but it was a nice taste of ‘sweater weather’. I was happy to give this new […]

Shades of Fall

Yesterday was a chilly, rainy day here in central Pennsylvania which really had things feeling like fall. That combined with my Instagram feed being 75% full of NYFW eye candy lured me into a little online browsing. As big of a fan I am of pastels, I’m finding myself eager for some rich, deep hues […]

The Vest

I’ve been tempted by this style of vest for a while now but always felt a little intimidated by it. I don’t know why. I love vests, I love blazers and this is pretty much the perfect combo. When I passed it on the rack at Target (yes, Target) I threw it in my cart […]
