One Pot Rigatoni Caprese!

Wednesday, December 2, 2015
So as you guys know, I'm not a great cook. I knew that it was time to start cooking homemade meals because I was seriously tired of ramen, macaroni and cheese, and frozen dinners. I'd made pastas with jarred sauces and I've sauteed veggies, but I hadn't really made a homemade meal before.

I knew that, since I work full time, I had to make something quick, and since I've recently moved into my house and we're not fully stocked on food yet, it had to be something that didn't require too many ingredients. I went through all of my Pinterest boards and kept looking. I stumbled upon this one-pot pasta caprese recipe by Yellow Bliss Road, and I instantly knew that I wanted to make it. Alas, I did make it, and it actually came out really good! Even my hubs liked it, and he can be a picky eater!

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

I know, I know. It's been a while! Last week, I was unbelievably sick with a severe case of bronchitis, so I was completely bed-ridden. I'm also still working on things for the blog, so the posts will be coming in slow for a while.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you my Fall 2015 Walmart Beauty Box!

We're moving into our first HOUSE!

Sunday, September 20, 2015

I just quickly wanted to share some exciting news with you guys. Brian (my fiancé) and I are moving into a house!

It's a cute little corner cape right across the street from my parents' house, so we will have the best neighbors ever. It features four bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room, a kitchen, a coat closet, a pantry closet and a linen closet, as well as large closets in all of the bedrooms. There's also an unfinished basement, which will be primarily used for storage, and our washer and dryer. The roof, siding and windows are all new. What we'll be paying for the house is an absolute steal, especially in today's market on Long Island. We are a little nervous because Brian recently landed his career and money will definitely be tight at first, but we think that it's an excellent investment for our future.

Biggest project so far: I re-did my bathroom!

Thursday, September 17, 2015
First of all, let me say right now that I am addicted to staining every piece of wood that I can get my hands on. I have this strange obsession with dark stains; some of my favorites are black, espresso and cherry.

A couple of months ago, when I was living in my old apartment, I decided that I wanted to re-do my bathroom. Man, that bathroom was just awful. The walls were a very ugly grey color and terribly painted. The previous tenant created a drip effect with a type of paint lacquer, so the walls were extremely bumpy and uneven, too. I realized that I'd had enough and I couldn't take it anymore.
