1 Day At Put-in-Bay

Few things I enjoy more than promoting Ohio tourism.  As a native who’s been living away for the past nine years, the affection for my home state has only increased.  Not only is Ohio great because there are so many places that are absolutely gorgeous, but it&#8217…

What’s Up Wednesday

It’s official.  I absolutely suck at keeping a schedule during the summer.  While I relish in the opportunity to travel, sleep in, and visit my parents, I thrive so much more when my schedule (i.e. when school is back in session) is predictable.  When I know that…

Watermelon 1st Birthday Party

Almost two years ago now, my dear friend from college called to tell me she was pregnant.  I was walking down a neighborhood street of D.C. on an evening that couldn’t make its mind up as to whether it wanted to still be summer, or to start…

Sweet Heat Chicken Bowls

  Is anybody else feeling like summer is more hectic than the school year sometimes?  My gosh, for as much as I love the chill nature of summer, I feel like I’ve been running around like a mad woman. Which is why, blog babes, I came up with…

Five Lies About Paying off Debt

Alright, blog babes, it’s time to get real here.  I, Britt, am in debt.  OK, it’s nothing major, and it’s completely self-inflicted, but I am (in a tiny way) in debt.  The hot water tank in my condo recently died, so I had…

How to Get the Most Out of a Farmers’ Market

If I were to describe my perfect weekend day, it would definitely involve a farmers’ market.  Perhaps my fondest memory of living in D.C. was when my friend who is a chef came to visit, and we went to the market and then came back and made a…

The Thank You Card is Still Relevant

I remember both loving and hating birthdays and Christmas’ as a child.  Loving them, obviously, because of the presents, special foods, and celebration.  But hating them because my mom always made me sit down at the kitchen table and write out thank you cards to everyone.  Yup, even my…

Summer Book List

  Perhaps the #1 question I’m asked is for book recommendations..  I love talking about my latest reads and recommending books to others.  For me, summer is a time to catch up on everything life-wise, and I love to take extra time to read.  Here I&#8217…

10 Things That Really Aren’t That Annoying (that save space and money)

In the age of technology, many apps and websites have emerged to make our lives easier.  However, I beg the question..  Was it really that annoying to begin with? Companies will try to sell you stuff that you absolutely, positively do NOT need, and I find that to be more…
