A Rockin' and Wavin' Birthday Week

A Rockin' and Wavin' Birthday Week

I definitely don't feel older. In fact, I still feel 20 at heart, but this past Sunday (Father's Day to be exact), my twin and I celebrated our 27th birthday. I've mixed feelings about this as we are slowly creeping closer to the big ol' 3-0. However, we're still a few years off and I'm doing my best to soak in my 20s for as long as I can by doing things I've never done before.

If you read my "New York State of Mind" post earlier this week, then you know J, Twin Sis, and I headed to Rochester, NY to celebrate our friends' wedding.

New York State of Mind

Two of J's and my very best friends got married this weekend in Rochester, NY and we couldn't have been more thrilled. In fact, Sami was who introduced J and I when they were each other's roommate in college, Allison and I were in the same sorority for a time. You know when you meet a couple and instantly understand why they are meant for each other? That's these two? Seeing them together is just natural.

Chicken Alfredo Penne Bake

Chicken Alfredo Penne Bake

I've made this recipe several times over the past few years and each time it gets harder and harder not to go back for seconds and even thirds. 

Again, I don't know why I haven't added this recipe to the blog yet since it's one that is easy to make, requires ingredients that you almost always will have on hand, and it tastes good every time.

Memories Made During Memorial Day Weekend

Memories Made During Memorial Day Weekend

This Memorial Day Weekend, J and I headed to our parents' lake house to officially kick off the summer season. J and I have been looking forward to this weekend for a while. We haven't been up to the lake house since the beginning of the year, so we were itching for some sunbathing, wave running riding, and boat cruising. Plus, Luna loves getting to swim in the pool with her BFF and our nephew, Sammy.

Bow Ties & Bare Shoulders

Bow Ties & Bare Shoulders

The older I got the more frustrated I became with the lack of clothing available in stores for petite women. There was one store that I began to rely on for great, well-fitting petite clothes was the Loft. It seemed to be the only place that had a decent sized petite section, as well as a large selection online. Their clothes fit true to size and the quality was great.

Staycation at the La Cantera Resort & Spa

For our first wedding anniversary J and I decided to spend a day and evening at the hotel where we had our wedding reception: The La Cantera Resort & Spa.  Last year at this time, the hotel was undergoing renovations, and although the ballrooms, lobby, and some new restaurants were open a lot of the amazing features like the adult pool, spa, and the majority of the guest rooms had yet to be finished.
