How To: Coffee Cart

I heart my coffee cart

I found this little guy at Ikea for $49.99 and while the price was steep, it was totally worth it.  I was proud that I put it together myself with only a few grunts.  You'll probably notice a few other Ikea pieces from my wishlist that I've used to decorate it.  I am loving my French Press 'd coffee (the Upphetta in Swedish).  The strong coffee is necessary for a long day in the office.

Sundays in Annapolis

The loveliest nautical town in all of the world. 

We started off with brunch at Metropolitan.

And then I bought this groovy hat. 

Successful day.

Chestertown Farmers Market

I'm so lucky to live where I live.  
Chestertown has an amazing Famers Market on Saturdays downtown.  For me, it's about a 1 minute walk from my door.  You'll find everything there from fresh veggies & fruits, homemade wine, lavender farm products, just plucked flowers, puppies, amish treats, etc.  A latte from Evergrain & a stroll through the Farmers Market is the perfect way to kick off the weekend.  

Have you ever just searched Famers Market in Pinterest? Veggies on Veggies.
Do you have a favorite Farmers Market near your home town?

Porch Party

My office is unlike most.  
My office is an old house, ghosts included.
Fall Family weekend approached and we thought it would be a great event to utilize our awesome porch space to kick off the school year and welcome Fall.  Thank you to all of our students, friends, faculty, staff & alumni that stopped by to make last Friday so much fun!  We love our Washington College community and are so glad you are a part of it.  

Acceptable to hang these lanterns all over my ceiling at home?  Not sure.  Thinking about it. 

 We had so much with our little lemonade & iced tea stand.  #wcporchparty

Jaclyn is from Massachusetts.. Yay Lobsters!
Jade is from Annapolis.. Yay crabs!

My awesome Voyagers!

Chuck is one of our Kent & Queen Anne's County Alumni Chapter Leaders! 

We love WC! :) 

Happy Tuesday people!

Movie Monday


In the last week and a half I watched all of these films and musicals.
This is weird for me.  I'm not a movie person at all.

1. Evita : We all know "Don't cry for me Argentina" but I am so shocked that I had still never seen this.  When I saw that it was available on Netflix, I went for it!  Madonna was amazing and so so beautiful.  I loved this look into Buenos Aires politics.

2. My Fair Lady : Another classic that I had yet to see.  It was also my first experience with Audrey Hepburn's amazing acting & singing.  I think Roman Holiday may be next for me.  And let's be honest I'm a sucker for anything based in London.

3.  One Day : which leads me to my next movie; another London based film.  Anne Hathaway rocks.  While it was absolutely depressing, I loved the sweet ending.

4. Under The Tuscan Sun :  I've been sick for most of the weekend with a cold and this was the perfect remedy for a lazy Saturday afternoon.  It was definitely the prequel to Eat, Pray, Love in the best way.  SO early 2000's.

Have you watched anything good lately?
Comment & share below & I will add it to my list!

5 Things I'm Trying This Fall

*mandatory Fall post* *duh* *sips PSL*
PSH yeah right, as if there was Starbucks in Chestertown.  Please.
  Everyone's freaking the fall out over fall. 
It rocks.  Tea & blankets in the morning.  Brisk walks to work. Sweaters.  AHH THE SWEATERS.  The moth ball smell from my sweaters. The pumpkin everythang. 

As with the change of every new season, I'm inspired to make a few goals of this amazing time.  It's my first #postgradlife Fall and I will be taking full advantage of all Fallish things.  Join me & make a few goals for this Fall; don't let it slip by!


1. Pick & carve a pumpkin here. (Lockbriar Farms in Kent County!) 
2. Baking -  I'm going to make real Irish scones.
3. Yoga in the morning times before work.
4. Grow a plant.  Can you guess what color flower I'll choose?
5. Paint.  I don't make enough time to do so.  I love watercolors but I need to get back into acrylic.  Now!

Have you made any goals for the Fall?  I'm already trying to carve (womp womp) out a weekend or a few days to do Fall activites, but the weekends are already so full with work and family.
