A Mountain Weekend

Posted on October 24, 2017

Sometimes a girl just needs a mountain getaway with her gal pals. In my case, as usual, it was less mountain-focused and more food and drink-focused. *Shrugs* I know what I like. Last weekend I spent the weekend in Asheville with two wonderful friends who I hadn’t seen since leaving Madison last year. BUT before the fun could begin, my first stop was to meet Tommy in Burlington so he could change my windshield wipers. First piece of advice: findRead More

Summer Recap: Internship #1 and Wedding

I first had this dip at Tommy’s parents’ house over Thanksgiving a year andRead More

I’m about 10 years behind in the whole 30 Rock thing but (1) it’s still funny and (2) Liz’s message here is OH SO TRUE. This particular episode is Episode 2 of Season 2. In this episode Jenna has put on some weight. She starts telling Liz about the Japanese porn star diet she is following to get back to her previousRead More

Holiday Trail Mix

Posted on April 14, 2017

My mom used to make this trail mix around the holidays. It’s the kind of stuff that just begs you to keep eating it. It is the perfect blend of salty, sweet, and crunchy. I have distinct memories of gathering around the kitchen island at my parents’ house over Christmas break with my high school friends inhaling this delicousness. And making this for Easter this year brought me right back there. The different textures in this trail mix come fromRead More
