Trip Days 3-5 // California

As part of our quick vacation, we drove the approximate four hours to Los Angeles where we mainly stayed for the duration. The drive out to California was scenic–for me– as I never saw desert land and mountains like that before. Day Three Driving into Los Angeles was nothing short of what I’d expect the…

Trip Night One & Two // VEGAS

I’m baaack! Whew. It feels so great to finally sit down, at my actual desktop computer, and begin these entries I’ve been itching to post. Right after our trip, we moved into a new place and have spent hours between moving, building and decorating. Posts to follow. ButĀ first, every day of our short 5 day…

Easter 2017

Boy, holidays are just plain fun when you’ve got family around. Don’t get me wrong, Eddie and I definitely enjoy being big homebodies and not having to do much of anything… but at the end of the day, it’s truly nice to lay in bed and reflect on how special the littlest moments really are….

Saturday treasures

My nephew was out of town with his other grandparents, so we decided to make the morning an adventure to find a new breakfast place, stop at some garage sales and of course finish the afternoon off with some thrifting. Our first stop was this little place called Cafe You. It has raving reviews so…

Random things

Hey! Just felt like doing a little “mini post” about a few random things. For starters, we tried a new Pho place that was actually an “express” Vietnamese restaurant. We literally drove all the way out here thinking it was just a regular restaurant based on the raving reviews to find out that it’s actually…

Book Club & IKEA Treasures

I said I’d come back to share all my IKEA treasures. Once I gathered them (some were still in the car by this point), I realized I had more big items than small. I really can’t post about what we got until the building/creating really takes place. However, I can tell you what my goodies are, at…

Tampa Day Trip!

Yesterday was a very eventful day. My biggest goal was to finally get a bunch of stuff in which Heaven is masked as a place called IKEA. My sister has never been to an IKEA so we brought her and my nephew along for the ride too. With the weather how it is this weekend,…

Old and new hauls

I happened to be surfing Pinterest when I came across a few topics aimed at those who want to try new content in their blogs. One that was really intriguing for me was to post your “empty” makeup. This means posting all your most used/daily used items which really helps as a recommendation into products…

I’m an Advocate personality!

This post will be different for me, but I really wanted to take a personality test and post my trait. I used the website 16 personalities which helped cutely identify my personality trait.  They ask 100 fairly simple questions (as long as you click what you feel is the answer right away. Overthinking does not play very well…

The Art of Cast Iron

I’ve been meaning to invest in getting my first ever cast iron skillet for probably a year now. Last week, I was looking up recipes when I came across a specific-to-cast-iron skillet recipe that I really wanted (chicken pot pie!) and decided to snatch one up! Today started off beautiful. I went to some garage…

A year of blogging

Have you ever started a journal or hobby that you truly believe you’ll be able to dedicate yourself to but usually fail? (“I swear, it’s different this time!”) That’s me. Usually. But I can’t believe it… I didn’t just stick to something, I stuck to it for an entire year. Today marks my one year blogging anniversary (and…

01001000 001101001

I figured I’d do one of those “recap” posts to make up for all the random little things I’ve done and pictures I’ve taken. Sometimes I have great moments with little amounts of photos that aren’t really enough to complete a post. For starters, my nephew turned 5 last weekend! Everyone met at the Sanibel…
