For all of you that celebrated, I hope you had a wonderful Easter yesterday. Josh got really sick Saturday night so we ended up not getting to bed until most people were waking up Easter morning. Sunday Josh was still feeling a little under the weather and we were both exhausted. Despite that, we both had an amazing day. We woke up to presents from Josh’s parents, celebrated Easter with Molly’s incredible family, came home

Life is busy. Some people can juggle a crazy schedule and make it look effortless. I am not that kind of girl. I’ve got a job, a side job, a blog, a husband, family, and friends. I’m usually running from one place to the next on my never-ending to-do list. And I never get enough sleep. (I’m really working on that one this year.) At times life can feel like a marathon (if, you know,

After work on Friday I came home to find my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have Box waiting for me. I look forward to this box like a kid at Christmas. Josh said when he was coming home he saw a girl walking down the hallway with one and thought it was me but it turned out to be someone he’s never met before. I love that there’s another girl in my building that subscribes to POPSUGAR. I

I’m so excited it’s Friday! I have a lot to do this weekend. I want to work on some blog things and get down to business planning our upcoming trip to Hawaii. I also want to go for a run and rock another Zumba class. The weather is supposed to be beautiful!
1. Speaking of Zumba, we cooled down to this song last week and it seriously made my day. It’s so positive and

A fun night with girlfriends getting dinner at Marks and dessert at ECreamery. ECreamery’s Irish Cream ice cream is the bomb dot com.
Our running buddy Gizmo. Josh and I were running a 5k around Regency when this little guy trotted up to me and started covering me in kisses. Thankfully he had tags and we were able to find his owners. He was loving his little adventure. I’m so glad we were

TGIF! I had a busy week of traveling for work, and while I had the best time I am so looking forward to a weekend filled with lots of sleep. Here’s five other things on my mind this Friday:
1. Residents of St. Louis: go eat at The Tavern if you haven’t already. I went there on Wednesday night for a business dinner and was blown away by the food and drinks. My phone

Do you guys remember my pancake post from a few weeks ago?
These Bananas Foster Pancakes were so delicious. I wish I could eat some more right now!
Well shortly after I posted my pancake recipe I received a sweet surprise from Stonyfield. Apparently they liked the pancakes too!
They sent me a Le Creuset Bistro Griddle so I can make pancakes on the best possible surface. When Josh and I were

Thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s post. I love that you guys are tea fans too. I alluded to my weekend yesterday, but thought I would do a post recapping what I’ve been up to.
Chicken curry from Marrakech, a red velvet cupcake from Jones Bros, and Divergent with my girlfriends. Ignore all the bad things you’ve heard about this movie. If you’re a fan of the books you will love it. I

This weekend was a busy one for Josh. While I was doing fun things like seeing Divergent, going to a blog meetup, and spending my Sunday at a bridal shower, Josh was sequestered in his office grading papers and writing up a test. The end of the semester is a busy time for Professors!
When I got home from Molly’s bridal shower on Sunday afternoon I decided Josh needed a little work break. It

I was so proud of myself last weekend for planning ahead and outlining a blog post for every day of this week. I wanted to write them all out on Sunday and then spend the week patting myself on the back for being an organized, efficient blogger. Then I decided to watch the pilot episode of Scandal. Now it’s Thursday, I’ve watched three seasons of Scandal (I’m caught up for tonight’s episode!), and am posting
