Hi guys! It’s Friday once again and I could not be happier! After a pretty productive week with some much-needed R&R (think: early bed times, bubble baths, home-made meals, etc.), I feel energized and ready for the weekend, which is both a long weekend (Labor day, woohoo!), and TOUR DE FAT! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you may be familiar with Tour de Fat, but for those of you who aren’t, […]

Oh, man do I have a good one for you today! Yesterday, I came home craving something fresh but extremely flavorful, something healthy yet still a little decadent. It then hit me like a lightning bolt – caprese! Caprese is a classic Italian salad consisting of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, seasoned with salt, and olive oil. Rumor has it, it was created to reflect the colors in the Italian flag, but I’d have […]

As I mentioned, last week was Peter and Jenna’s wedding in Billings, MT. We happily made the trek through Wyoming, going through only one major storm on the way ☺ It was so bad, everyone was stopped on the side of the road, and I literally couldn’t see the hood of the car at one point (sooooo scary!). Once it passed, though, we were on the road again! We made it in pretty good time, and […]

{cake at the wedding we attended this weekend – sooo good!} Hi guys! How was your weekend? Mine was jam-packed, but awesome. C and I made it to another of his friends’ weddings this Saturday in Billings, Montana, where we caught up with old friends, made a few new ones, and just generally had a wonderful time! As per usual, I have a ton of pictures to share, so bear with me as I get […]

Happy Friday! Another week, another packed schedule. Summer is on it’s way out (not that you’d know it by the heat we’ve been experiencing, but whatever), and I plan to take advantage of these last few weeks as much as I can. That means you can expect to see a bevy of summer-inspired recipes, picnics, mini-road trips, and days at the river before the weather turns. That being said, I’m already SO excited for fall!! […]

On Monday you saw the outfit…and now for the actual festival! We arrived just as the sun was beginning to set, and quickly exchanged some cash for festival bucks. ^ Most refreshing beer of my life! For the first night, we just hung out and listened to Patti Fiasco and Big Head Todd and + the Monsters, sipping our beers and people watching. Sibling selfie! We didn’t last too long, knowing there was a long weekend […]

I definitely consider myself a music lover, but when it comes to festivals, I have to be honest and say that, for me, the music is just one small part of the fun. Live music is absolutely amazing to experience, but I often find myself just as intoxicated by the atmosphere, the people-watching, the food (you’ll see that tomorrow), and, of course, the fashion! I really liked my outfit for the first night, so I […]
