Something Saturdays-On a Sunday (2/14/16)

Another boring work-work-work week. It's also been super snowy here (boo)--is it snowy where you are?? Yesterday was great though-I went to a bridal shower for Michael's cousin and then he and I celebrated Valentine's Day by going out to dinner at one of our favorite places, Burntwood Tavern, and then we watched Supernatural and some movies ....more

Parmesan Herb Popovers

I love popovers. They're kinda tough to describe but they're all light and fluffy inside and crisp and almost fried on the outside....they're sort of like a roll/donut hybrid? Sort...more

Something Saturdays (2/6/15)

Hmmm...not sure what to say this week... Work last weekend went super well-I was able to work with 2 girls I was already friends with and we were stationed at the "Kids Zone" so we just hung out and helped 2-6 year olds ride these little strider bikes, it was pretty great actually! And the rest of this week I just got stuff done and worked ....more

Peanut Butter Butterfinger Ice Cream {No Cook, Egg-free}

When you make your own sweet treats at home...it spoils you, guys. Like...you got to a cupcake bakery and scoff when you see their cupcakes don't have filling (IF A CUPCAKE ISN'T FILLED IT ISN'T WORTH IT!)

Something Saturdays (1/30/16)

Last weekend's work wasn't too bad--I was working in my hometown so I ran into a girl from high school, my old preschool teacher, and one of Michael's coworkers. My Uncle Brian and cousin Brianna, David (Michael's best friend), and Michael all stopped in to see me as well. Kohl's was actually having 70% off on suits so Michael ended up shopping (he hasn't purchased a suit since he was 16) and he ...more

Thick Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

One of the few things that I mostly keep standard on the whole "eating things seasonally" (I'm not not talking about vegetables--I'm talking like ice cream is for summer kind of thing) is that I usually only drink hot chocolate in the winter. But I'm also super picky about it--like...when I tell people that I only drink water and they make the weirded out face and then I inform them that I do ...more
