I hate how long I’ve been MIA from the blog world, but I love the reason for it.. after a stressful couple weeks of packing up our entire apartment, loading the U-Haul, and driving I-95 from New Jersey to South Carolina, we are officially moved into our new townhouse in Charleston! We still have quite a bit to do in the house, but it feels SO good to be back and (almost) settled in. So.. to get back in the blog game, let me tell you about some of my favorites from the past few weeks.
These Carrot Cake M&Ms have been my downfall lately.. they’re just so good! I really love the seasonal flavor M&Ms that keep popping up. They make the perfect little treat to have in a bowl around the house.
This book has been on my “to read” list for a very long time, and I finally got my hands on it this week. So worth the wait. It’s a beautiful story with the perfect ending. And the day I finished reading it, the trailer for the upcoming movie was released. Definitely teared up watching it.. can’t wait to see the movie!
Mike’s cousin and his wife renewed their vows in Rhode Island a couple weeks ago – it was a whirlwind of a weekend, but we had a great time celebrating with Mike’s family and doing a little exploring (we made a pit stop in Mystic, CT to have a slice at the Mystic Pizza). The wedding seemed like the perfect time to try out the Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick I received from Influenster. I’ve never been one to wear lipstick, but I loved the extra pop of color it added to my outfit!
Last night, I went to my first South Carolina Girls’ Pint Out night at Edmund’s Oast, a high-end brew pub in Charleston. It was a 3-course pairing of beers and delicious dishes. My favorite “snack” was the Roasted Brussels (served with pancetta, nuoc-cham, and sage).. hands down, the best brussels sprouts I’ve ever had. The quote above is on one of the walls outside the restaurant. It’s so perfect!
I know I’m late on this, but I loved Anna Kendrick’s opening monologue on SNL – she did the opening song from Beauty and the Beast. I mean, it’s only been my dream basically my entire life to be Belle, so that would’ve been a dream come true for me. Just another reason to love Anna Kendrick!
