Brent planned a little staycation weekend for me and Molls. It kicked off with us chaperoning my niece’s winter formal date ala cooking class from Chef Cynthia!

We had a lot of fun as her assistants!

I love Brent’s mom, Cynthia! She is amazing and so fun and I am grateful to be part of her fam:

After we stuffed our faces with delicious belgian waffles and crepes (DROOLING), we checked into Hotel Monaco! It’s pet friendly and the staff was so amazing to Molly. They greeted her and offered to check on her while Brent and I would be out for the evening. Next we ventured the Scout 2018 Gala — we clean up pretty nice! Although I will say I ran out of hairspray and my curls made me KINDA look like I’d gotten stuck in a rainstorm We then took an uber through McDonald’s cause YOLO

The hotel was comfy, and it was hard to get out of bed, but once we did we made it to Market Street to take part in their Sunday brunch. Hello, eggs benny and steak & eggs!

It was a blast of a weekend spent with my loves.


I love coming home. Cause there is a person and a puppy there waiting for me (usually). It’s an amazing feeling to have. One that I’ve never experienced before and one that I am getting more and more used to. I love nothing more than opening the door to a barking pup who is SO EXCITED to be in my presence again. I wish I could love so unconditionally! Having Molly has been one of the greatest joys I’ve encountered. She’s the cutest pup who, after barking and sometimes hyperventilating, wants to kiss your nose and then lay right next to you.

The other night when I was home and waiting for Brent, he had me call her from my front door. She heard me all the way down the sidewalk you walk on to enter my house and came BOLTING around the corner to me. She can be fast when she wants to be.

Then there is Brent. We have our hard times (as does every couple) but we keep working together. He’s my favorite person — I could list 1,000 little things he does that I absolutely adore, but this is one of my all time faves — driving to work at the same time and glancing over to see this (often he’s waving Molly’s paw to me)

Impromptu trip to NYC to mourn the loss of a great guy and be with my friends. Cookie the size of my face

I love this city and all the people that were there when I was — they mean so much to me.
