Wife, Foodie, Traveler, Shopaholic. I am a thirty-something tactfully-opinionated nurse living in the Midwest. I believe shopping counts as cardio, tea cannot be too sweet, anything orange (and sparkly!) can cure a bad mood, and no one can have enough clothes, accessories or shoes. I love to bake, indulge in celebrity gossip, cupcakes, reality tv, photography, travel anywhere new or places that I've already graced, spend time with my family and live life the way I am meant to. I am in love with my iPhone, husband and 2 wrinkly shar-peis. Join me on the journey of my candy coated life. Fasten your seatbelts!

It wasn’t until a few years ago (maybe two) that I developed a real taste for fish. I mean really enjoying eating fish. And actually being able to choose to eat fish and not being forced to eat it … Continue reading →

Why is it that whenever I make anything with bananas I always have monkey’s on the mind? As in monkey’s at the zoo, not the Monkees that my mom was in love with. I guess it’s because monkey’s eat bananas … Continue reading →
