The Best Finds at Trader Joe’s

I was so happy when they built a Trader Joe’s in Southlake! Still a farther drive than I want to make, but it is worth it. I will go about every other week and get a few of our favorite things. In my opinion, these are the best things at TJs. We like to shop […]

Before + After House Photos

Welcome to our home!!! I love looking at before and after pictures and seeing the transformations that take place. Anyone seen Fixer Upper!? I love that show. The way Chip & Joanna can completely transform a house is incredible. Well, this is not that, but a little paint and some fixture changes, we turned this […]

Buying Our First House

We found our perfect home! We knew from the moment we saw it that this was the place.  However, finding the perfect place doesn’t always come easy. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ We knew buying a house would be a lot, but this is not what we expected. I wouldn’t say this is a horror story, but it definitely […]

Everything but the Bagel Salmon

I debate with myself about what my favorite bagel is and that debate is between the everything bagel and the asiago bagel (have you had that one at Einstein’s? – so yummy!) I’ve been into the everything bagel more recently. I never thought to put that seasoning on other things until my cousin told me […]

Everything but the Bagel Sweet Potato Rounds

Y’all, I found my new favorite snack! These are two of my favorite things put together into one. Purchasing Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning was one of the best decisions I’ve made in awhile. I’ve had this on avocado toast, fish, and now sweet potatoes. If you have anymore suggestions, I am totally […]

Garlic Shrimp Asparagus + Mushroom Skillet

I am all about quick and simple dishes! However, in the summer I don’t really need quick dishes. Thats what is nice about summer, I have the time to spend in the kitchen and make amazingly delicious meals. Taylor isn’t the best at cooking, but it is nice having him in the kitchen and spending […]

Tilapia with Cilantro Lime Quinoa

I’ve been away from blogging about food or anything for that matter, but it was for a good reason; I recently got married (eek!) and honeymooned in Hawaii! So, I’ve been pretty busy this summer. Good news though, I have a new hubby to cook for, so I’m back!  It is so fun to have […]

Spiced Pumpkin Tartlets

I love Fall. The weather, the clothing, the food, the desserts, the holiday. Everything about fall is magnificent. However, this Fall has been a little funky. The weather has been flip flopping. One day it feels like winter, then fall, the winter, then summer, then fall… All I know is, as long as I can […]

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Who doesn’t love a good smoothie? Well, if thats you, I am sorry for your loss. My favorite is strawberry and banana. Basically the only smoothie I ever order. I probably should branch out, shouldn’t I? Well, here we go; here’s my branch. If you do love smoothies, you’ll enjoy this one. The pumpkin flavor […]
