maria & enzo's disney springs

Great photo ops, incredible shopping, fun experiences for the kids and fine dining all reside at Disney Springs, so what’s not to love?   Maria & Enzo’s doesn’t just have amazing cuisine, they also offer a […]

The Lady & Sons – Savannah

You know what I LOVE? A good spur of the moment road trip. After Easter dinner last Sunday, my sister-in-law (Becky)  mentioned going to visit my other sister-in-law (Diana)  when my mother-in-law (Katie) was also planning on going up to visit.  (still following? lol)  Diana lives about 45 min away from Downtown Savannah, and since I have been DYING to check out Savannah, I decided to tag along with my crew. One of the major things I wanted to do […]

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s, all opinions expressed are my own. #AmericanIcons  Pregnancy Cravings are no joke. Before I got pregnant with Cash, I just assumed “cravings” were all in a pregnant woman’s head and she could use them as an excuse to eat whatever whenever she wanted. Now I know that the craving is so strong it actually feels like a need. It’s hard to separate mentally what you can live without vs. what […]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ShoutSolutions #CollectiveBias Staying healthy has been one of the most important and challenging aspects of pregnancy #2.

At this point (33 weeks) I’ve only gained […]

The Hype is Right- Sprinkle’s Cupcakes Comes to Tampa

I’ve always wanted to live somewhere…fancier, than Central Florida. In my head I’ve always been more of a California girl, and my recent honeymoon in San Francisco confirmed that for me. While I throughly enjoy all the amenities being a Florida girl has provided me with, I have a taste for the foreign and trendy which is why when I read Sprinkle’s Cupcakes was coming to Hyde Park, I was exhilarated! Sprinkle’s Cupcakes started as the world’s first Cupcake Bakery in […]

Cold-Brewed Coffee At Home

This family runs on coffee. While I am pregnant and only consume about one cup a day, my husband will clear the rest of the pot before 10am, and sometimes we’ll enjoy a cup for dessert as well. While piping hot cup of coffee is something I can enjoy when it’s a little chillier, hot beverages in general are difficult for me to enjoy when it’s 87 degrees outside. While I have tried brewing coffee and pouring it over ice […]

Quick & Simple Birthday Cake Decorating.

When I make someone a cake, for any occasion, I want to make sure it looks amazing. I know I’m not a professional baker, but I take pride in my food presentation. To celebrate my little sister’s 19th birthday this week, she only had one request: vanilla cake with vanilla icing. I wanted to make her something with a little more dazzle, so I decided jazz up the boring vanilla cake with some gorgeous and easy decorating skills. To start […]

Doughnut worry, they’re Mini – Mini Doughnut Factory Tampa

Doughnuts are one of my favorite treats. They remind me of when I was growing up, Mom would always get chocolate milk and a box of Entenmann’s chocolate covered yellow cake doughnuts for breakfast on the weekends and I really enjoyed sharing those moments in the morning with her. I want my kids to have those special memories they can reminisce upon when they’re older with food as well, and being 7 months pregnant any excuse for something sweet strikes my […]

Farm to Table Shortcake Recipe.

As the we come to the end of Strawberry Festival week I’ve tasted the best shortcake, and also picked over 3 lbs of fresh strawberries at a local farm. Now I’ve got to figure out different ways to utilize the berries in the tastiest ways possible, and one of the best ways I know is making shortcake for the family from scratch. Sure mine won’t QUITE as good as the one at Parksdale  but it’s worth a shot! For the shortcake […]
