Farmers Market.

Status-post Wegmans and the farmer’s market. I love to cook but I’m chronically uninspired. I’ve been using the Noom app over the past two weeks and have surprisingly actually lost weight following the plan, along with eating in my I.F. window. I think their angle is mostly psychological, and I was very skeptical starting out,…

Stress.

As women, it’s already incredibly easy to pick ourselves apart. Society already does so much of it for us, and the rest we manage to do by negatively critiquing our brows, our hair, our thighs, our wardrobe, our everything. This week my thing has been my hair. I keep asking myself questions like “am I…

The Epifanio Rivera Erial 2013

I’ve spent the day doing a lot of schoolwork, very light housework, and walking the dog, all while fighting a multi-day headache, so forgive me in advance for the dry writing. I have my BLS Renewal tomorrow morning, so this evening seemed like a great time to try out a new bottle of wine before…

Pittsburgh.

This weekend, Mr. Z and I are in Pittsburgh for a friend’s wedding. We decided to make it a long weekend, which worked out well considering that Monday is Labor Day! Our hotel room at the Hotel Monaco did not disappoint: Because of our engagement schedule, I haven’t been able to see as much of…

Day Trip.

So we recently went to the MGM National Harbor Casino and essentially gave away some of our hard earned money. I quickly learned that I only like gambling when I’m winning (shocker.) The casino was lovely though and brought back memories of our trip to Las Vegas a few years ago. I personally enjoyed this…

Tuesday Morning Slump.

Going into work late today, and I literally have no idea what to do with myself and the extra time. I started by working on some of my school work (late bloomer working on the Bachelors,) but that was short-lived. I made coffee and played with Ralph for a bit, but that too only lasted…

The Marqués de Cáceres Verdejo 2017.

I’m very partial to red wine, and everyone who knows me knows it! So when I came home the other day with an armful of white wines, it raised a couple eyebrows (okay, literally just my husband and my dog, but that counts, okay?!) I blame this rare occurrence on the kind clerk at my…

Personality Test.

It’s Sunday, and I am currently waiting for my husband to get back from walking our dog so we can take a day trip to the casino in D.C. While cleaning out my e-mail and surfing through some of your pages, I came across a website for a personality test mentioned on ThoughtCatalog.com (you should…

Intermittent Fasting.

What do I know about Intermittent Fasting? Not much. Not much at all, truly. I’ve been doing it for the past two weeks on top of doing Slim Fast though, and it is the only thing that has helped me to finally stop my weight from swinging back and forth, up and down, and all…

Crafty.

I hardly have time to devote to anything that would be considered a hobby, but one of the things that I do like to do when I do have some rare downtime is decorating and up-cycling wine bottles! Some of them I paint and have around the house as centerpieces or decorations, some I give away…
