DIY Costume – Bob’s Burgers

DIY Costume – Bob’s Burgers

This year for Halloween I decided to do things a bit differently than I usually do. Instead of going out and purchasing some lame pre put together costumes, that cost a million dollars for no reason, I decided to put them together myself. Gathering cheaper…

NYC Takeover

NYC Takeover

The moment I saw that The Bouncing Souls, one of my favorite bands, were playing on The Liberty Belle in NYC I knew I had to go. Not only that, but I knew instantly who I had to go with. My forever best friend Jaimie (DUH, NO BRAINER). Considering both of us grew up in New Jersey with the Souls, it was only in our nature for us to finally see them together. Not to mention the fact that NYC is our favorite city and if you didn’t know… The Liberty Belle IS A BOAT! Like seriously, I didn’t think it could get any better, it was fate. However for Jaimie, the whole boat thing did take a little convincing. But let’s be real, she couldn’t resist getting scandalous in the city with me. Continue reading NYC Takeover

The Odd Number, Specifically 9

Let’s be real, everyone either favors even numbers or odd numbers. Personally, I have always gravitated more towards even numbers. I’m not exactly sure why, but is anyone really sure why? I know I like writing even numbers better (maybe because I’m aware I hold…

Patio Renovation!

Patio Renovation!

I know what your thinking….. a patio renovation blog at the end of summer? Really? But let’s be honest, would I really be doing this MY way if I got things done on time? Nope. I am all about keeping it real and let’s face it… with two kids, two dogs, birthday’s, life events, seriously JUST ALLL OF THE THINGS, momma was BUSY this summer. All while still trying to find time to renovate and decorate. I will however, let you know I put a lot of heart and soul into how I wanted this space to look. I knew I wanted a space outside that the whole family and our friends could enjoy. I wanted it to be cozy and relaxing so we could hang out, play outside and have nice dinners while the sun went down. Family bonding has always been important to me and I truly think you have to feel at “home” to be comfortable in your home. Continue reading Patio Renovation!
