Well, this has certainly been quite a weekend. Not only have Jay and I managed to have a ton of fun, both Friday and Saturday, but we’ve also been pretty productive around the house, too. This weekend, we were actually supposed to be away in Wildwood but we had a few changes in plans and […]

Ohhh, last night was so much fun! And it’s all (well, partially) thanks to these… Once I decided to take control yesterday on date night, I thought it might be fun to do a little something different. If you guys are anything like Jay and I, you may tend to have a hard time deciding […]

I Took Control

Hey guys! How’s the day going? Things over here have been running smoothly – busy, but not in that “oh my god, I’m way too busy” sort of way. More like the, “I’m keeping busy and having fun” sort of way. Ya feel me? Mid-morning, I decided to some yoga/pilates again from our On Demand […]

Welp…it’s about time to hang up the softball jersey for the season. Last night’s game didn’t go as well as we’d hoped, and we ended up losing in the semi-finals to end our season. As happy as I am to have some of my evenings back, I always get sort of sad when softball season […]

YAY for impromptu lunch dates with my man! Late this morning, I had to make a quick stop at the hospital to visit my grandma (aka, “2’Nana’s” as I call her – long story). She was admitted on Tuesday and from what it sounds like, she actually had a mild heart attack. Luckily, she seems […]

Here’s a fun little fact about Yours Truly to start off the morning… It’s true. I’ve always loved all the different medical shows that actually show you different surgeries and things taking place. TLC has some great shows, but one of my latest favorites as of this summer is NY Med. source After I realized […]

So tonight’s dinner? Oh lawdy…where do I even begin? For the past week (at least) I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to cook up a real dinner, and tonight I finally got my chance. I was browsing around in our fridge to see what we had on hand that I could incorporate with a box […]

So I owe you guys a little recap of my Newbie Q&A panel, don’t I? First, let me just say that I had a blast. Last year, I was super nervous leading up to my panel and had butterflies for practically the entire morning. But this year? Despite the fact that I was feeling totally […]

That Little Chill

by Courtney on August 22, 2012

Good news…the cake was a success! And I think for the first time ever, the entire cake got eaten, which made me so very happy. I really wish I had grabbed my camera to take a picture of it once it was sliced, but judging by all of your birthday requests, it looks like I […]
