I recently discovered that chocolate Lucky Charms exist.  Why I didn’t discover this sooner, I don’t know, but they must have been sent from heaven just for me!2015-04-30 19.38.32

I haven’t seen a rainbow in quite some time, but I feel like anytime there is one, everyone has to take a picture (including me).2015-05-04 21.59.11

I’m off this weekend, so I’m trying to make the most of it by filling my days with fun and getting all my errands for the week done now.  Here’s a glimpse from my past week!2015-02-14 10.22.54

Valentine’s macarons from Michael.  They were so delicious!

My Weekend in Pictures 10/24-10/26


I was originally supposed to be out of the state this weekend, however, that did not happen, so I spent my weekend relaxing around Raleigh.  Here are some tidbits from my weekend.
2014-10-23 21.07.14

Gabi attempting to be friendly with her new roommate, Luna.  And by friendly, I mean, she sat close to her for approximately 5 minutes.

2014-10-24 07.16.06

The beautiful sunrise on Friday morning.  I love waking up early on days off to enjoy the whole day…even if I do take a mid-afternoon nap!

2014-10-24 17.53.21

I baked a pumpkin pie, because you just have to at least once in the month of October!

2014-10-25 13.43.24

Balloon art discovered at the N.C. State Fair.

2014-10-25 13.45.28

Some ginormous pumpkins at the N.C. State Fair!  There was one there weighing over 1000 pounds!!

2014-10-25 15.15.07

The ever popular ferris wheel, at the State Fair of course.

2014-10-25 15.15.26

Hey look, shadow people! 🙂

2014-10-25 15.48.37

Gabi enjoying her time out in the sun.  Typical model pose.

A quick stop at my boyfriend’s office, on SAS Campus.  This sculpture is right outside of his building.

Ending my Sunday night with pumpkin spice coffee and a pumpkin donut from Dunkin’ Donuts while burning the last bit of soy wax from my P.F. Candle Co. candle.

I hope everyone has a great last week of October…can you believe it’s almost November?!

My Weekend in Pictures, 7/4-7/6

So, this is a somewhat sad compilation of photos from my weekend, however, I thought I’d update everyone on my life because I can. 🙂

2014-07-04 20.49.24

The sky was being patriotic.

I made bruschetta burgers for the Fourth of July and paired it with some blue corn chips and creamy spinach dip for a red, white, and blue themed dinner.  My burger recipe will be up sometime in the near future is up now, so go check it out!

2014-07-03 22.06.20

I drank some of the only type of beer I like: Lambic.  Nom.

2014-07-04 21.49.49

I then went on a lot of adventures with Gabi and Michael.

2014-07-04 14.50.34

On Saturday, we went to the NC Farmer’s Market and I had some fried shrimp from the N.C. Seafood Restaurant for lunch.  I miss having seafood whenever I want it.

2014-07-06 18.35.02 After the farmers market, we went to the flea market, where I bought Gabi a treat from the Bone Appetit Bakery.  She loved it!  I also got myself some Chocolate Pecan fudge, but you better believe I devoured that!  Actually, I just lied.  I didn’t…I still have a quarter of the bar left, I just never took a photo of it.

2014-07-05 13.05.15-1

We also went Geocaching!

Sunday, I spent the majority of my day in the kitchen.  I cut up my watermelon, tried my hand at making French macarons (which turned out very well!!), and made, um, I guess I’ll call it ‘watermelon water.’

Stay tuned for my bruschetta burger recipe and my successful macaron attempt and recipe later this week!
