The Perfect Pancakes

Now that I've finally moved in 100% and Chestertown is my official home, I've been able to relax and enjoy my 'real worldliness."  Me and the Mr. decided that on lazy Sunday, we would like to make pancakes.  And boy, did we make pancakes.  

Check out these babies.  Topped with greek yogurt, fresh berries, and a sprinkle of sugar, these were definitely not #cleaneating worthy.   However, there are so many pancake recipes out there that are healthy and look absolutely delicious.  Here are a few I've saved on Pinterest to try for myself.  

Are you noticing a theme?  Bluebs.

Rifle Paper Co. Sale!

Rifle Paper Co

I am super crazy about Rifle Paper Co.  I have a serious love for everything they do.  
I don't think that there is anything that I don't want from their online shop.  I'm crazy about their new wallpaper collection and would love if I had the ability to wallpaper my bathroom in this print! Give me all of the journals and notebooks.  Fingers crossed I am able to get a new iPhone 5 soon so that I can purchase this London case.

Don't forget, save 10% on all art prints from Rifle Paper Co. until tomorrow, July 23, 2014!

Life Update

A big life update coming at ya!  
Well, if you follow on Instagram you probably already know this.
I have accepted a job at Washington College and have moved to Chestertown full time!  Yesterday was my first day in the "real world" and I loved every second of it.  I will be serving as the Assistant Director of Chapter Programming and Alumni Networking.  If you are a Washington College alum reading this, I will be handling all of the Alumni Chapters across the country!  :) See you at an event!  

 My volunteer work with the Alumni Board and with the senior class gift campaign this past year totally sparked my interest in development, fundraising, and alumni programming.  I am so inspired by the team I work with, the volunteers I oversee, and the alumni I am engaging.  This move couldn't have been more perfect for me and I'm so excited to learn everything about this new realm.  

The decision wasn't easy, and there were days that I questioned whether Chestertown was the right place for me (cough, cough the last two summers in DC, cough, cough).  In the end, what really mattered to me was the work that I would be doing and my passion for it.  I am able to utilize my creativity and harness my ideas and vision for these programs that I have not only partaken in, but already molded and shaped as a student.  

Cheers to the next chapter, I am so happy you are along for the ride!

I am super in love with all things Scandinavian.  You know this. 
Therefore I'm sure you have also assumed my deep love and affection for Ikea.
While nothing is certain on where I will be living or working, I am SO certain about what I will be purchasing from Ikea.  I'm ready to make this happen; big time.  I can't help but scope out Pinterest for ideas and DIY's for my future apartment.  What I am wondering is what everyone's go-to is for first apartment essentials?  While I am inheriting some furniture from my parents, I am wondering what I should do about the rest of it...
