Fun Facts Friday {8/29}

by Courtney on August 29, 2014

homemade ice cream

1. Homemade ice cream is just the jam. Especially when you get a combo of homemade chocolate chip cookie dough and “Coffee Krunch” (aka, coffee ice cream with all sorts of Oreos mixed in). On Wednesday night, Jay, Lucas and I met up with my in-laws for dinner and dessert to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday […]

Hey guys! Happy Thursday! So before we get to the “meat and potatoes” of today’s post, if you will, I just want to address something real quick.

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Detour Bar. I don’t know about you guys, but I think summer just has to be my favorite season of the year when it comes to food. Sure, don’t get me wrong, I love me some pumpkin just like every other obsessed blogger out […]

Man, I just love weddings! While our weekend was definitely a good one, the biggest highlight (by far!) was our cousin’s Marc and Nikki’s wedding out in Pittsfield, MA on Saturday.

1. I feel like I must have used all of my creative energy on yesterday’s post because as I sit down to write today’s, I’m at a bit of a loss. So forgive me if this one is a bit all over the place. Then again, it is Friday, and I’m allowed to go off […]
