24 Hours in NYC

You know those t-shirts that say I heart NY? I feel like they were more popular in the 1980s and 90s , in fact I didn’t see one vender selling them on the streets when Andrew and I were there last weekend. Well I used to have one, I made my parents buy me one […]

Start Spreading the News….

We did it! We went on our first “nonrev” trip! I have been officially working for the airline for a month so that means that I am able to start my adventures. Andrew and I wanted to do something small for our first trip, just to see how this whole standby thing works, and settled […]

Well 2018 has certainly made an impression so far. It has been FRIGID in Maine for over a week, with temperatures barely above 0, which makes you want to stay snuggled in bed all day and watch Netflix. We’ve also been hit with multiple feet of snow, which you expect being winter in Maine and […]

12 Beers ’til Christmas

Andrew is not a huge fan of the holiday season. The extra clutter around the house and the gift buying stresses him out. So I thought this year I would do something to get him into the spirit. I’d seen beer advent calendars circulating around social media over the years, but I didn’t want to […]

We had a bit of a cold snap this week, like had to find my ice scraper in the morning cold snap. We’ve been lucky lately with our weather so when the cold does start creeping in it’s a bit of a shock. But it is Maine and winter is coming so we need to […]

Overnight Oats

One of my goals for this school year was to be more organized at both home and work, I thought an easy way to hop on the organized train would be to prep lunches breakfast for the week on Sunday #mealprepsunday!  I was good about cutting veggies and pairing them with small containers of humus, […]

Friday Night Stromboli

What a week! There was a powerful storm here on Sunday that left most of Southern Maine without power and left Andrew and I without…. the internet. For four whole days we had no Netflix, cable, AmazonPrime, Pinterest…nothing. We managed to survive by playing games and Redbox rentals, thank goodness for Redbox!  In all seriousness […]

Lovely Lausanne

In April 2016 Andrew and I embarked on an epic road trip through France and into Switzerland. We had an amazing time and you can check out my posts about Paris here and here and Gruyere. Our first stop in Switzerland was Lausanne. I honestly didn’t know much about Lausanne but Andrew had heard that […]

Bandaloop

This past week was a long one. Between 80 degree weather, meetings, open house and a new student starting I was in need of either a vat of wine or something super fun by the time Friday finally came.  Thankfully I live in a city that loves the arts and often has free events, Friday […]
