cinnamon roll bread pudding

As I mentioned, Kevin and I spent last Tuesday in Harry Potter world. I am unabashedly obsessed with Harry Potter. I’ve read the books so many times I’ve lost count (though it’s comfortably in double digits). I’m not big on the movies because they really don’t do the books justice, but I’ve seen them all….

two easy summer staples

GUESS WHAT? Yesterday was my 4 year Spill the Beans Blog-iversary. Can you believe it? That means you must have wasted hours of your life reading my words over the last four years. It’s been a really fun thing for me to do, and I definitely think it has forced me to get a little…

cleansing again

Hey friends! My supervisor just said “One Thursday a month we have business meeting. You’re not invited. Go do something else.” Why, good morning to you too! So I thought I would share some photo evidence of my fooding this week. As I mentioned I’m doing the cleanse again, but I modified it this time….

sweet & savory waffles

Happy long weekend everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July celebrations, I know I did. My cousin Jamie got married yesterday and was THE most beautiful bride. I know people say that about every bride but really, she could be on a magazine cover. The GS came into town for the wedding,…

lentil salad w/ apples & blue cheese

I’m moving so soon. It’s freaking me out a little but is also very exciting. Because I’m planning to move out of Baltimore in my Honda Civic, I’ve been getting rid of things like crazy. Donating clothes, selling furniture, throwing away garbage bags of crap that I can’t quite figure out how I accumulated. This includes…

apple cheesecake crumble

I’m not super active on social media.. I never post Facebook statuses and I usually tweet once a week or so with sarcastic life observations, if and when they strike me and are 160 characters are less. More often than not I’ll type out a tweet and decide “that’s not funny” and delete it. But…

whole wheat apple crumble cookie cake

I’m back in Baltimore! This is exciting because I was really missing my gym. I taught Body Pump on Wednesday night when I got back and I had SIXTY FIVE people in my class and 12 on the  wait list. This has never happened before. Usually I have about 30 or 40 but the room…

chicken lettuce wraps with peach salsa

Back, back to school! I started classes last week. I accidentally deleted my entire spreadsheet from my first statistics class, failed to purchase any of my textbooks, and got to spin around in a chair in my vestibular class. We’re off to a good start. Today was also my first day at the hospital. It…

hawaiian chicken sandwiches

I did something really cool this week. I got to scrub in on a cochlear implant surgery! I use the term “scrub in” loosely.. yes I was wearing scrubs and shoe covers and a hair net, but I didn’t get to touch the tiny bone drill. I did get to look through the microscope and…

strawberry pie

As I’m sure you all know, last Sunday was Mother’s Day. Unfortunately I couldn’t be home with my mom on the actual day, but I obviously sent a card and called her before either of my sisters (winning). After Body Pump I decided to do some cleaning since I was already dirty. Even though my…
