Lately, I've been sticking to my go-to meals (like Red Beans and Rice and Cottage Pie) since holiday schedules have been rather hectic, When I have made something new, I've completely forgotten to grab pictures of it.

We all that one friend (or 5) who are completely obsessed with animals, more specifically, their own animals. Luckily, I've surrounded myself with some amazing women who adore their furry pets. Again, luckily, most of them are dog people... My two sisters are the only anomalies...Read More
I, unfortunately, do not have a strong DIY gene. I can make simple things, and enjoy the occasional home project or two, but the majority of the "visual creativity" belongs to my sisters and mom.Read More
I don't know what it is, but for some reason I have the hardest time finding gifts for friends and family. I feel like once the holidays roll around, I can't seem to find anything they'd like for within the budget we allotted for each other. That's why I rely heavily on "gift guides". It helps kick-start my brainstorm.Read More
I can officially get into the Christmas spirit now that Thanksgiving has come and gone. I'm a firm believer of waiting until after Thanksgiving to begin decorating for Christmas and listening to holiday music. Thanksgiving is such a fun holiday in it's own right that I think it needs a solid period of celebration, too.Read More
I begin most of my Christmas shopping in early November purely because I am an anxious person and the thought of me scrambling to get gifts for all my friends and family with just a few weeks left before Christmas makes my heart start to race.Read More

I can have Tex-Mex food all day every day. I ADORE it. Really, I prefer the chip baskets the best, but tacos, enchiladas, queso: you name it, I love it. The problem: it so high in calories, saturated fat, and grease! Ugh.. sad.Read More
