“I know it’s silly, but it’s worth it…trust me.”  No truer words have ever been spoken.  Picture it…a big city girl, on a family trip to…Hampton.  I’ll be honest, I wasn’t very hopeful, when I set out in search of brunch on Sunday morning as I left the great city of Hampton, VA, but what … Continue reading

One of my favorite things to do after church on Sunday morning is head into the city for brunch.  Brunch usually last for about four hours, and very quickly turns into Sunday Funday…please tell me you know what that means…I’ll wait… Anyway, we brunch…and we brunch hard.  So, I look for brunch everywhere I go. … Continue reading

Every year, Z becomes extra introspective around his birthday.  He sort of goes on a spiritual fast and becomes very quiet and what I used to think was, withdrawn.  As we have continued to grow, I’ve watched in awe as he takes stock of the previous year and makes plans for the year ahead, and always highlights that for which he is most grateful.  Keeping with the theme of the past week, I’m highlighting my greatest blessings, and he’s at the top of the list.  I’m grateful for your life @thebeardedmensch.  I’m grateful for our life together, and I’m grateful for everything we’re blessed to share.  I love you more than bacon. ‘nuff said.  Happy Birthday Baby 😘 Quasi-vacay mode for the Mr.’s birthday.  I’d far prefer working from the beach than the subzero temps in DC right now.  Not to mention my favorite pastime...canoodling with my boo... #wellbeback #zday2018 #thismightbetheonlypic We’re a week away from the actual day, but we always celebrate early with friends and family before we skip town for our annual tradition.  Can you believe this is the fourth birthday party I’ve thrown for you @thebeardedmensch? “Small, intimate, #pizza, #tacos, #beer.” Your wish is my command 😘 when I asked what kind of birthday cake he wanted, he said he wanted an ice cream cake...#rockyroad to be specific.  Nobody sells that.  So, I hit up Pinterest for inspiration on construction and set out to make #cashewmilk #rockyroadicecream because #nondairy is a must 💨💨💨 I made the #carvel crunchies out of Oreos and #magicshell ice cream topping and decided on #pralinesandcream for the top layer.  I might do a video with all of the steps, but long story short, I “iced it” with cool whip and piled the top high with all of the ingredients.  It was bomb.  We had a blast. I like to take an inside/out approach to warmth.  Roasted curried vegetable soup for #lunch. Pulled this together in between calls and gusts of wind howling by the windows.  #mymycooks #roastedcurry #vegetablesoup #curriedvegetables #mymycooks
