Grapefruit Sugar Scrub

Today’s recipe is not for eating, but for pampering! It’s been a while since I have done a crafty post, but I have really been feeling the need to do a little pampering. Perhaps it’s because the third trimester is already draining me of all energy! ...more

Banana Snack Cake

I am about to get really excited talking about this cake and you guys are going to think I am totally weird because it doesn’t look all that exciting, but oh my gahhhhh, it’s so good!

Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt

I’ve been on a frozen yogurt kick lately and while we love going out to our favorite frozen yogurt place, it can really add up!

It was my home for 11 years while I completed both my undergraduate and graduate degrees so obviously we miss being around so many crazy Seminole fans! ...more
