10 Ideas for an Affordable, Awesome Night Out

10 Ideas for an Affordable, Awesome Night Out

Have you ever struggled to come up with an idea for a night out? We’ve all been there, I get it. Whether it be with friends or a date night, doing the same thing week after week gets old. Coming up with something fresh and fun can be challenging in itself, though. A night out doesn’t have to cost a small fortune and leave you scraping by until the next payday. In fact, having fun can cost little to nothing at all. Before resorting to the same thing you do week after week, here is a list of ideas for a night...

I got the baking itch again this weekend. It hits often, and without warning. And when it does, the house will be smelling of baked goods with something coming out of the oven shortly. With the hubby away on business last week, I neglected to go to the grocery store until he got home. When Friday night hit, we made dinner with what we had around the house. What was more challenging was making a dessert with what we had on hand. When you want to bake, there is little more disappointing than finding the perfect recipe, then realizing you...

10 Healthy Snacks for when You’re on the Go

10 Healthy Snacks for when You’re on the Go

When you’re constantly on the go, it can be so easy to grab whatever is convenient for when hunger strikes before the next meal. From a bag of chips or Fritos to a candy bar and cookies, I myself have been guilty of munching on whatever is most easily accessible, especially during times of stress. While many of us would like to make healthier options, it can sometimes be a struggle to come up with ideas of things to munch on in the car, at a soccer game, or in between work meetings. Below is a list of 10 healthy...

Finding Closure When a Friendship Ends

Finding Closure When a Friendship Ends

We never anticipate a friendship to end. In the beginning, you meet someone, make a connection. As you start to do more and more together, you optimistically think that it is a friendship that will last for years to come. You go out, have fun, and form close bonds. You laugh together. Cry together. Share your fears and dreams. That person becomes the someone that you call on whenever anything happens in your life, good or bad. They become a sounding ground. A friend that you can trust to give you honest advice, even if isn’t what you want to...

For the past couple of weeks, Anthony and I have been watching The Great British Baking Show on Netflix. Like many cooking shows, a set of people are chosen to show off their skills, and each episode, one person is eliminated if they don’t quite meet the standards of what the judges are looking for. Both addicting and dangerous, the show inspires the need to test out new recipes that may or may not turn out as pictured in the mind. (Google ‘Nailed It’) Pages: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3

Breathtaking Views: High in the Sky with Columbus Aeronauts

Anthony and I have always been about experiences. Having all of the ‘stuff’ we need to make our house a home, we’d rather go out and make new memories than collect more things that we don’t really need that will eventually end up in storage. Because life is crazy, and time just slips away (how is it almost June already?!?!), we haven’t gotten the chance to do this as often as we like. So when Anthony sent me a text asking if I had any plans for that coming Thursday after work, he told me to be sure to leave the evening...
