December 2010

Well, we sure didn’t have to dream of a white Christmas this year. It was right in front of us, and for our entire drive home, we couldn’t see anything but white. After the Christmas festivities in NoVA, we found ourselves trapped outside Virginia Beach. Home to North Carolina we went! slowly but surely… It […]


A Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! Our Christmas sure was a fun one with the kiddos. I got to spend a whole bunch of quality time with my nieces, especially Adelyn, who is already “TWO” (as she will tell you). Since my camera is missing in action, we used Amy’s fancy new one to take our yearly pictures in […]

This is the first time I’ve been home for a vacation from work since entering “the real world.” I got home to Hertford, NC after a half day of work yesterday, I plopped on the couch, and I did nothing but watch TV and play mindless games on my iPad. have an iPad? download this […]


A Limited Kitchen

December 21, 2010 · 2 comments

There should be an instruction manual for learning to cook yourself healthy, satisfying meals on a low budget, a limited kitchen, and limited time to cook. Doesn’t every new college grad need to learn those basics? I was pretty psyched about the little dinner I made myself last night, especially considering the way I’ve been […]

That’s what I’ve been doing. Sorry. The time leading up to the holidays has just been so hectic.  I’ve been running around doing a lot of this…           Personalized wine glasses. I’d say best holiday gift ever, but I think I’m biased. And a whooole lotta this… … And this. Just […]

It’s official. I’ve had my first VB Snow Day! Picture it: 5:50 a.m. My phone’s vibration rudely wakes me up, and I hit the “Send” button to pick up the call.  I hear an automated message telling me that, due to weather, school is CLOSED for today! Yeeesssssss! Suddenly, I’m 12 years old in my […]


An Oreo Ball Adventure

December 14, 2010 · 2 comments

I was completely inspired by Jessica’s oreo balls. After reading her recipe, I was sold on the oreos, cream cheese, and chocolate. Uh, hello best foods combined ever? Since I just moved into my new digs and have a kitchen appliance population made up of a refrigerator, a microwave, and a blender, I had to get […]


New House, New DIY Project

December 13, 2010 · 3 comments

For your average 22 year old girl, I’m pretty handy dandy. Growing up, when my dad fixed something for me, the engineer in him would typically show me how it worked and how to put it back together. Fast forward to 16. I was helping my dad flip houses after his retirement from chemical engineering […]


My Running Necessities

December 10, 2010 · 1 comment

Everyone’s got a few things they’d be lost without for their training routine, and I’ve decided to take a moment to pay tribute to mine. 1. Ouchless hair ties – I NEED my hair completely out of my face and I need an ponytail holder that won’t fall out.  My go-to style necessity is an no-slip […]

“When I grow up…”

December 9, 2010 · 1 comment

Most kids, when asked what they want to be when they grow up, answer something to the tune of, “a doctor,” or “a firefighter,” or “a lawyer!” Should I add here that I wasn’t exactly your average kid? I was also clearly graced with a mouth full of perfect teeth. Please, my teeth are practically […]
