You guys, I had the most INSANE time ever exploring the Martha Stewart offices in NYC during my last trip. My boss works in the same building as Martha, so a few of us got a private tour. It was everything you wanted it to be and more! There were people decorating cookies for Valentine’s Day and placing individual sprinkles on cake! There were hundreds of props including platters, chairs, and silverware. It was an unbelievable experience.

I got this cute black dress from Nordstrom Rack and have gotten SO many compliments on it. Paired with my favorite loafers, it was the perfect NYC outfit. Q asked me if I forgot how to put my jacket on, HAHA, men! Happy Shopping!

WOW, three weeks have been gone since I’ve been on here. It feels like such a long time. Here’s the catch-up:

I went to Tennessee to check on the house and do some Army wife business. While I was there I found that the outlet that our basement freezer was connected to had stopped working during the last thunderstorm three weeks earlier. It was pretty much the worst Deployment Murphy’s Law moment that could have happened since I had a flight to catch and had to clean out a freezer full of spoiled food by myself. It was one of those “I can’t believe this is happening to me” moments. But I pushed through and handled it like a champ.

I went to one of my best friend’s weddings in Pittsburgh, which was a blast. It’s always fun to explore a new city with my girlfriends and adventures like this keep me busy. The rehearsal dinner was at PNC Park where the Pirates play, which was a beautiful and fun location.

And per usual, I’ve been enjoying a lot of good food, particularly breakfasts.

Mom and I made a delicious pan-fried chicken and arugula salad for dinner tonight and I’m going to prep the recipe for later this week.

Hope you missed me because I missed you!

Before Q and I took off for London, we spent a weekend in San Francisco. We took it as an opportunity to visit my aunt, uncle and cousin who live there. We had fun drinks and then a delicious dinner at Wayfare Tavern (highly recommended PS).

My New Year’s Day treat is always a burger from In N Out. I hardly ever eat red meat, so this is my once a year burger. And I love every minute of it, and then don’t want to eat another burger until next New Years.

I’m more of a seafood girl, you know what I mean?

PS this is not a great photo, but the new portobello mushroom salad at Sweetgreen is to die for. Their winter menu is on point.

I woke up to 60 degrees this morning and we woke up to SNOW! Carl actually tolerates the snow quite well, what a trooper!

I attended a bridal shower this weekend and wore one of my favorite dresses (Kate Spade) with some fun leopard heels (Jessica Simpson).

Hi friends! This weekend I took a super quick trip to Hawaii to visit my grandma. Tough life, I know right? It was SO hot and humid and my mom and I sweated our way through the weekend. I loved being able to spend a few precious days with my family, heat and all.

Over the weekend, I found the most magnificent hydrangeas that I’ve ever seen at the local Whole Foods.

We also found a great local breakfast spot called The Nook. The chef mixes traditional Japanese with all American favorites (think pancakes with fresh mango and pineapple or Jidori chicken and waffles). So good.

I met the cutest 16 week old Frenchie named Biscuit. That one ear up, one ear down thing just kills me!

And of course, I did a little shopping with my aunt. I’m conflicted on this neon J. Crew blazer. Part of me loves it and part of my is scared of it (does that make sense?). I did grab the striped tee, which is super cozy and not too pricey.

And I really wanted this clutch, but held back in hopes it goes on sale at some point…

Back to the real world today 🙂 Recipe coming on Wednesday!
