  • Six Months Into Motherhood

    Six Months Into Motherhood

    I can’t believe I’ve been a mom for six months! I can’t believe my baby girl is already six months old! Where did the time go? It still feels like we just came home from the hospital yesterday. The time is flying to fast, but I’m doing my best to enjoy every moment of it. Before…

  • Anniversary Celebration at Trader Vic’s

    Anniversary Celebration at Trader Vic’s

    We celebrated our anniversary at Trader Vic’s last Friday for lunch and boy, did we have a blast! We had the pleasure of checking out Trader Vic’s last year for brunch in November when we attended their Hawaiian Brunch and Bazaar to support our favorite bar tender, B-Rex selling his wares. I was eight month…

  • Four Years of Wedded Life

    Four Years of Wedded Life

    I never get tired of thinking about where we’ve been and where we’ll go. Going on nine years of getting to know each other and four years of marriage, we have been through so many adventures and I love that we only continue to plan even more. As it is, we’re on the amazing adventure…

  • Three Months into Motherhood

    Three Months into Motherhood

    I know that I’m rather beside myself that I’m already into three months of being a mommy! I cannot believe it. To be honest, it still feels like it was just yesterday that we were coming home from the hospital. It may be flying by, but that certainly doesn’t mean that it has been uneventful!…

  • Welcoming Our Loved Ones through Our Halloween Tree

    Welcoming Our Loved Ones through Our Halloween Tree

    Our Halloween Tree looked gorgeous  in the glow of lit jack-o’-lanterns and Halloween lights and the pumpkins’ lights made it all through the night well into the passing of the veil closing. I was quite impressed by how long the balloon lights did last as most of them were just leftovers from a previous party…

  • Comfortable, Cute & Expecting

    Comfortable, Cute & Expecting

    My life has been focused on our move, our coming baby and Halloween. Unfortunately, Halloween was been pushed to a back burner repeatedly as the first two become more pressing of matters when it comes to getting our old house on the market, our new house unpacked as well as finding a new hospital and…

  • Dell’Osso Family Farms Pumpkin Maze 2017

    Dell’Osso Family Farms Pumpkin Maze 2017

    Every year, if we can make it happen, we go to the Dell’Osso Family Farms Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. We just barely made it this year, but we did it and made record time with our maze wanderings! The last couple years, though, we’ve forgone the pumpkin patch. This year, we swung by and…

  • Dingle Pies for Samhain

    Dingle Pies for Samhain

    Actually historically served in Dingle, Ireland during Lammas (the feast of apples), I added Dingle pies to my Samhain feast to accompany the colcannon. Colcannon is usually a main dish, but I have a family full of picky eaters so I searched for a recipe that was might be a little more universal to appeal…
