He created an exercise playlist for me based on my love of Lady Gaga, and since then he’s shared with us other top playlists for breaking a sweat. Today Chris shares the top workout songs of 2011 thus far. The bolded [...]

Good Things Come in Threes

By Katie, 5:09 am

Like blind mice. And wise men. And strikes. And little pigs. But perhaps the best thing that comes in threes, at least for me, is years of marriage. July 2008 July 2011 Happy 3rd Anniversary, Dave! ♥

A Friday Giveaway!

By Katie, 5:37 am

When I was in high school, quote books were all the rage. Every girl in school had a pretty little notebook where she’d jot down all of the inspirational quotes she could get her hands on. Unfortunately I didn’t save my old quote books, but I do still love the idea of using quotes for [...]

Ch-Ch-Ch-Cherries!

By Katie, 5:16 am

The theme of my long weekend was CHERRIES. Picking them… …and cooking with them. We picked both sweet and sour cherries, but saved the sweet ones for enjoying on their own. The sour ones got baked into one of my family’s favorite recipes: Sour Cherry Pudding. It’s a cinch to make, but the pitting process [...]

My New Kitchen!

Goodbye total lack of storage, hello cabinets and drawers and pantry! Dave and I can actually be in the kitchen at the same time without knocking elbows! I [...]

My New Restaurant Scene: The Blue Moon

By Katie, 5:39 am

As I’ve mentioned before, Dave and I just built a house in York, Pennsylvania (pictures to come, I promise!). To be blunt, we are loving it. While we enjoyed living in Baltimore, basic stuff we wanted – like a big yard and lots of open space – just wasn’t affordable there. Of course, leaving the city has [...]

Love is a Decision: My Wedding Toast

By Katie, 7:02 am

Good news! The wedding I was in this past weekend went off without a hitch. Pun intended! I received a request for more details about the toast I gave as Matron of Honor, so I thought I’d share with you both the guidelines I used for writing it and the text of the speech itself. [...]

The Big Day!

By Katie, 6:50 am

The dress has been steamed, the seating chart has been finalized, the bachelorette party has been thrown… It’s time for these two to get hitched! My plan for the day? Keep the bride calm and hydrated, bawl my eyes out during the ceremony, give a rockin’ toast, and then dance the night away! What would be [...]
