Michigan Love <3

 This past weekend, I took a little mini-vacay to Michigan!  The main reason was for my friend Kate’s bachelorette party, but I ended up doing so much more than just going to the party.  I stayed with my Twinny (one of my best college friends), Steph, in downtown Detroit, and her fiance and two loving…

Flavors To Follow – Chevron

Top row: 1. 2. 3. 4. Bottom row: 5. 6. 7. I need help.  I am in total nesting and nursery planning mode but I love it.  These past few days I have been obsessing and dreaming about what our baby boy’s nursery is going to look like.  I didn’t want the space to look…

I heart blogger meetups

Have I told you how much I love blogger meetups?  Well if I haven’t, I’ll tell you again, they are awesome!  :)  A few weeks ago I found myself in Orlando again on a business trip and I can’t say that I saved that much of my per diem.  Orlando’s Prime Outlets always have me…

We’re Having a Boy!

[polldaddy poll=5221880]  Well friends, here are the final results from the Guess Our Baby’s Gender poll and I must say, you guessed WRONG haha!  We just had our second ultrasound last Friday (at 18 weeks) and after 20 minutes of taking pictures and measurements of our squirmy little one, we found out we were having…

Food Truck Festival

A few weekends ago, baby daddy and I went to the first annual Westport Food Truck Festival.  If you know me, you know my love for food… and food trucks!  And yes, the concept has finally caught on in Kansas City many months later than it has in most big cities, but nonetheless, it is…

Flavors To Follow – Maternity Clothes

Yay!!  We’ve reached the end of the week again, who’s excited?  I’m excited, are you?  Based on the title of this post, you can probably guess what has been on my mind all this week.  As my belly slowly grows, my clothes are getting tighter and tighter.  For most my pants, I use a hair…

Kansas City Urban Experience

A few weekends ago, I saw a Groupon come across for a Chimpsy Photo Fieldtrip for Kansas City.  I’d never heard of it before but it sounded like a great opportunity to learn a bit more about photography.  Up until this point I always took photographs in Aperture priority as you only have to set…

Flavors to Follow – Nurseries

Today I am 17 weeks pregnant and so far we’ve only bought a Pooh Bear travel system, a Christmas onesie, and a sleeping bag outfit thing for Baby a la mode.  If you know me and my shopping habits then that probably comes to a surprise to you that we haven’t bought more!  But first,…

Korean Bibimbap Goodness

Where I live, it’s about a 30 minute drive to the nearest Korean food restaurant.  Anything past a 20 minute drive is “far” in my book, after all, it only takes me 12 minutes to get to work and 15 minutes to get to the airport!  I know, I’m pretty spoiled with my commute, but…
