Five Things That Moving States Has Taught Me

If y’all haven’t figured out by now, the hubs, pups, and I drove across the country (kind of) to our new digs in Denver. Although we’ve only been in Denver for five months, moving out of my hometown has taught me five important life lessons….

There’s No Place like Rome

Ugh what I would do to live in Italy. Although I’ve only visited twice, I’ve spent a good chunk of time there both times I’ve visited. As you can imagine, my favorite part of Italy is obviously the food. Don’t get me wrong, the sites are beautiful and the air is fresh AF, but the food is…

Thanksgiving in Pilgrim Land

This is the first time I’ve not attended Thanksgiving Dinner with my family. However, we had made plans weeks before we found out that I was pregnant, to do our own thing. We wanted to head back to one of our favorite cities, Boston. While we were there, we wanted to visit Plymouth, where the whole…

Sisterly California Adventures

Since 2011, my sister and I have taken a sister-trip or do a sister-activity at least once a year. Although I’ve been to California a handful of times, Sara has never been that far West. Besides hitting up all of the natural touristy spots for her, I also had to do a lot of research…

The Real Housewife of Chicago (and her guilty pleasures)

To anyone who knows me, they know that I love watching the Real Housewives series on Bravo. Okay, I lied. I’m totally ADDICTED to them. And to answer your question, I watch every city-even though a handful are definitely better than others. 90% of the time involves old(er) rich ladies who fight like they’re back…

Kicking A$$ During the Work Week

Since April, my work life balance has been totally off. Me and my non-food colleagues have been putting in more hours, giving more brain cells, and having less time to decompress. Although I love my current workout regime (bar, yoga, pilates, strength training), I’m exhausted when arrive to class. I definitely feel like my workouts haven’t…

NYC Bucket List Eats

A year ago this weekend, two of my best friends traveled to NYC for an extended weekend visit. I was spending the summer interning in the big apple, but also hosted many friends who wanted to experience the NY life, which at times can be overwhelming, no doubt. With so many sights to see and…
