Restaurant Review – Volt Restaurant

Two weeks ago, Noah and I made the trek up to Frederick, Maryland to have dinner at Volt Restaurant for our 6 year dating anniversary. We don’t do Valentine’s Day, but this is the equivalent for us. Every year we go to a really nice restaurant and splurge on ourselves. The 21st of February is … Continue reading

Soup from “scratch”

The past week or so, I’ve been feeling a little more adventurous when it comes to cooking. And by that I mean, I started to cook. It’s not that I’ve never cooked, but I don’t do it as often as I should, or even want to. It comes to down to me not knowing how … Continue reading

Blueberry pecan pancakes

I decided to be domestic today and made blueberry pecan pancakes. The recipe was given to us by my Dad and Stepmom, but is actually a recipe for waffles. It works as either. I added blueberries and pecans, but you could add anything you want. I also made a crab and swiss quiche with red … Continue reading

A trip for two

This August, Noah and I will be celebrating our two year anniversary. I can’t believe that it’s only a few months away! Where did the time go?! We decided that we would take a mini-vacation instead of going on a bigger vacation this year. After throwing around a few ideas (Charleston, Niagara Falls, Savannah and … Continue reading

Five For Friday #1

Lately I’ve been seeing several bloggers participate in Five for Friday posts. I’ve never done this type of post before, but I think that showing gratitude, especially for my husband, is extremely important. I know I don’t tell him these things often enough. And I should. The little things go a long way. 1. You gave me … Continue reading

New year, new me?

And that’s what I’m hoping for this year. It’s not that I’m not happy with myself, or where I’m at … Continue reading

2011 in review

2011 was a great year for us. It was our first full year as a married couple (where the heck did the time go?!) and I would say it was pretty easy. I can’t think of any real hardships that we had to face this year – and I know how lucky that is. It … Continue reading

Cruisin’ Together – Day 3

We woke up on the first morning of our cruise and had already arrived in Nassau. Since we were still so tired, we hung out in our robes and ate room service. The room service wasn’t the greatest (Noah’s banana was almost completely bruised) and since the only place we could eat was on our … Continue reading

#WEverb11 Day 1

Choose one word. Encapsulate the year 2011 in one word. Explain why. Imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2012 for you? In the spirit of where this all started… this is the same first prompt from 2010. The word that sums up my year is … Continue reading
