Ski Trip adventures and some food

This past weekend I went on a ski trip with a bunch of people from work, which was super fun! Our company rented out some houses and we each paid a bit to get our lift tickets and things like that. I actually don’t know how to ski or snowboard, so I was lucky that the ski resort had snow tubing, which I have done before and I find to be super fun! Luckily a bunch of the other people...

Somehow one of the most gross looking foods is the best

Have you ever thought about how some of the best foods, basically all comfort foods, are some of the most nasty looking things? I made chili this week, which I have a recipe for that I’ll share in a minute, but I was looking at it as I was eating it today at work and man is that stuff gross looking. And so are mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, and a whole host of other foods…they just don’t look that...

Weekly Favorites

I’ve been M.I.A for a while I know…I’m working on a post all about why/a recap of the last several months, but really, I’ve missed writing and taking pictures of random tid bits of my life a lot. This time around I want to do better πŸ™‚ Anyways, here are some of the articles and things that I’ve been enjoying recently! I’ve been breaking out more recently and was wondering why…it’s not that it’s unusual for me, it was just...

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I know I know, it’s late, but Happy Thanksgiving and now officially, MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I hope everyone’s holiday weekend was filled with tons of food and family and friends! Mine certainly was and it was great πŸ™‚ I went over to my parent’s house on Wednesday night and was able to go to a Friendsgiving at my friend Amanda’s house. It had been a little while since I had seen her and even longer since I’d seen her family, so...

Museum’s, Hiking, and Virginia Tech!

So the past few weeks have gone by in a complete blur…everything has finally gotten busy at work/I kind of feel like I at least know what is going and contribute to what my team is doing, which is awesome πŸ™‚ Really though….what I want to share is all of the stuff I’m doing outside of work…the fun stuff πŸ™‚ I’ve decided to try and do more in DC recently, since it’s been so long since I’ve lived so close...

Week of adventures, friends and HOMECOMING

This past week was quite a fun one! All week long I was looking forward to homecoming πŸ™‚ JMU typically does homecoming on the same weekend as Halloween or the weekend just before it, so I was super excited to go down to school and see all of my friends and hang out back on campus for Halloween and a good football game. I don’t typically get excited about Halloween either, so it was a great excuse not to have...

Working, eating, and other things…

This past week was pretty easy going, but it was super fun πŸ™‚ It was mostly filled with eating lots and lots of food…I love food, so the week was great for me even if it was just food. Monday is always hectic at work, but once I come home, They’re usually pretty low key. I don’t really like to schedule too much to do on a Monday because I need to spend a little time getting my life together...

Best Fall Festivities in Northern VA

As I’ve said before, there are about a million reasons that I love Fall. I’m Fall obsessed! Everything I do in October I like to have some element of Fall in it, even if it’s just being outside for a little while and stepping on all the crunchy leafs (or is it leaves? I’ve always wondered) πŸ˜› I love a good fall activities guide…it’s how I get most of my ideas of things to do, so I was already thinking,...

Week/Weekend Update

It’s Monday again so it’s time to do a little update on my life! I seem to be quite sporadic in doing these things recently πŸ˜› Last week was kind of a blur…it was one of those slow but fast weeks (does that make sense to anyone else?) I’m not sure what made it that way but all I know is that all of a sudden it was the weekend again! Lets start with a couple weeks ago…I don’t really...

Deliciously Pumpkin-y Muffins

I love Fall and all the things that come with Fall…including everyone’s love for pumpkin around this time of year! I decided to get in on the pumpkin obsession with some pumpkin muffins. Muffins are one of my favorite things to make for easy morning breakfasts or snacks. They freeze super well, which makes them easy to keep for a while and I just love having something easy to reach for when I need something πŸ™‚ So I started out...
