Weekend Recap: Kenya dig it?

  1. Christen says:

    Kenya? How exciting! What is she going to be doing there?

    I love the idea of a baking business! Would you be shipping? Because I am no good in the kitchen but I definitely know how to put down a few (or a dozen) brownies 🙂

    A little bit of shopping, a lot of laying out by the pool and a sweet at-home dinner date made up my weekend!

    Thanks for posting!

    My sister works for Human Rights Watch. They are setting up someone new in their Africa division and apparently that person's laptop needed a personal handler so my sister got the job to go and drop it off and then is staying for a bit longer to go on Safari. To say I'm jealous is an understatement.

    I would totally be shipping the brownies. So don't you worry!

  3. Magchunk says:

    I'm totally with you on the WW thing… I did it for several months before plateauing and just couldn't get the motivation to get up off another 20 pounds! But my experience was that I ALWAYS gained slightly before a big drop. I really need to get focused on that again (I'm sitting next to a latte and pastry right now, bad).

    My man was gone all weekend, so I got a lot of little apartment projects done and went to a craft fair at the Seattle Center.

  4. Shannon says:

    that's a really cute name for a baking business! if you did nothing but brownies with edges, I'd be a loyal customer.

    I, too, spent the weekend indoors avoiding the torrential downpours but didn't leave the couch and the Weeds marathon that was in front of me.

    i want a fun safari outfit! for the jungles of philadelphia.

  5. LindsB says:

    Sounds like a fun weekend to me! And umm, can I PLEASE have some of those brownies right this second- they look divine!

    Sometimes your metabolism needs a little jump start after dieting for a while… it eventually starts to slow so the OCCASIONAL indulgence is actually good for you :] The trick is to keep it occasional and not convince yourself that your old habits were "occasional" (like me lol)

  7. Gwen says:

    What an exciting job she has!

    I would have been really excited to tour the stadium, but I am a baseball fan.

    will be looking forward to the brownies.

  8. Lauren Jade says:

  11. Caitlin says:

    I just got back from the beach yesterday so although my weekend was fabulous, I'm now dealing with mountains of laundry.

  12. Devon says:

    Ummm, totally yes on the brownie baking business. I'm envious beyond belief and hope you blog about your business creation journey!

  13. PS~Erin says:

    How very exciting about the possibility of your "brown-eyed brownies". Looking forward to hearing more!

  14. Sweet Nothings says:

    Congrats! I am 47% at my goal..keep up the work! dieting is such a struggle, isnt it!!

    i'm dying to go see the new stadium..I'm also hoping to get back for a giants game this fall before they leave the meadowlands( or heaven, as my dad says)

  15. Yansy says:

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
