    Click here to watch our morning news piece with WJZ, CBS Local Baltimore! It was so important to talk about all the vendors and organizations we've worked with and I'm really happy this came out to start our new year! #happynewyear #shoplocal very grateful to Linh Bui (who we respect for all her work but in particular her coverage of the Baltimore riots).

    Pizza and Pool in Baltimore

    Posted on
    Home Slyce is a pizza bar in Baltimore that offers free pool and varying kids of pizza and pizza-related food and beverage items. Mark and I went and had a great time Sunday.
    Our recommendations: Beer and Pomegranate Lemonade, and the Strongman Pizza.

    24 Hrs in Savannah (DAY 3)

    Posted on
    We had so much fun the whole week before and after hitting this city.
    To check out our preplanning, click here, Day 1 click here, and Day 2 pt 1 Myrtle Beach and Charleston, click the city names.
    (Prints of the photo below, because I'm in love with it, are available here.)

    Savannah was a great place to be immersed in Southern Gothic-ness and it's own definite culture. We've heard so many things from...

    Surprises at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (DAY 2 pt1)

    Posted on
    DAY 2 of our East Coast Road Trip is split up because of just how much happened when we hit the Carolina's. (DAY 1 on Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, and Wilmington here)

    The rain was coming down really hard, the morning we set off for Myrtle Beach. This city is on South Carolina’s Atlantic coast, and the hub of the Grand Strand, a 60-mile string of beaches. The plan had been to get toes wet at the...

    Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, and Wilmington (DAY 1)

    DAY 1

    Let me just preface by saying that we planned this entire road trip for a long time! (for example, this entry from February). Lots of hand-scrawled notes and maps and google spreadsheet formats. Right on the cusp of our thirties, we really wanted to make the most of this trip and hope you enjoy the tips we found useful.

    Woke up bright and early Wednesday morning before Memorial Weekend to...

    When it Rains

    Posted on
    Isn't it 'April Showers bring May Flowers'?
    Baltimore's been getting an insane amount of rain the last few weeks. There was hail once or twice too. As you can imagine- it adds to a lot more driving time. At least it's not cookie dough.

    Here are three simple ideas I use to try and stay motivated on days like this.

    1. Start Energized. The majority of people wake up and go about their days dehydrated....

    Enjoying the ☀️

    Little Havana Restaurante y Cantina off of Key Highway in Baltimore is just a short walk from Riverside Park to the water. Like I wrote in my Presidents Day Brunch Post- there's the coolest huge mural on the wall here with a handwritten headline 'Land of Eternal Spring'. We were definitely in the mood to enjoy the Spring weather, and hopefully it'll stick! It was an ideal date. Not too hot or...

    Walt Disney World Resort Memories

    Posted on

    This time last year, we were in front of where Harry Truman used to hang out in Florida on a family vacation to Disney World. It was my first time, a bucket list item.

    RIP Barbara Bush. Half of another Gemini couple (George Bush Sr. and her were the longest married presidential couple), and someone who accomplished an incredible amount in her life. She said in 1990 Wellesley College commencement...

    An Ode to IHOP

    Posted on
    There's a place in my heart for the International House of Pancakes. Doesn't matter what location (for the most part). My favorite one is where I'm constantly trying to convince Mark to take us as a reward for a good morning workout after the gym.

    The best brunch- when I close my eyes and imagine my go-to order at IHOP: steak tips and eggs (poached, cut them in half over your hash browns and...

    Presidents Day Brunch and 'Seeds' Film Teaser

    Posted on
    Spent Presidents Day with literally some of the nicest women I've met since moving to Baltimore. It's one of the most therapeutic things to just talk for a long time, with a good meal and cup of coffee. Here's to more Monday's off.  
    The outside of Order & Chaos has 'a creative cup of coffee' written out on the wall, and I definitely feel revitalized and inspired after a day like this. Little...

    Road Trip Planning

    Posted on
    Been enjoying planning the most amazing road trip possible for us this summer. 
    We want to go all along the Northeast coast from Baltimore to New Orleans, with a bunch of stops in between (Wilmington, Charleston, Savannah, Panama City Beach, and more)
    Here's a little preview of the route:

    I'm using this app called Roadtrippersto scout out everywhere we want to go- it links to Google Maps or the Apple...

    let it go – the (by e. e. cummings)

    smashed word broken
    open vow or
    the oath cracked length
    wise – let it go it
    was sworn to

    let them go – the
    truthful liars and
    the false fair friends
    and the boths and
    neithers – you must let them go they
    were born
    to go

    let all go – the
    big small middling
    tall bigger really
    the biggest and all
    things – let all go

    The Best Thing to Order at 'Five Guys'

    Posted on

    Needed comfort food this weekend- so we checked out our local 'Five Guys'.
    I've always been really confused about what to get because of all the add-ons and unlimited toppings. It's the same when I get salads or frozen yogurt- I make weird decisions and odd combinations that don't always make sense.
    So this time, I looked on my phone in line getting to the register, and found this article by...

    Happy Wednesday. Been yawning through this week.

    Super Bowl LII was a pretty tight game this year, I enjoyed it.
    This Doritos Blaze and Mountain Dew Ice commercial was one of my favorites!
    When Game of Thrones comes back I'm thinking of watching with one in each hand (because Fire and Ice).

    Did you know my photography is on Getty iStockPhoto (as well as Shutterstock)? Enjoy

    Started off the year at Sagamore Pendry and had the best time. There was a light dusting of snow, complimentary Sagamore Rye Whiskey Cider, and free brunch and water taxi ride.
