Do you ever look at a blank page and get inspired? There’s just so much that can go on it. You could draw. Write. Scribble. Fold it into a paper airplane. But then you’re staring at it… And you’re suddenly so overwhelmed. What if I start something and then decide it’s not what I want? What if I screw up the eye lashes on my … Continue reading Let’s be friends?
I worked at Starbucks in college. I’m not trying to toot my own horn, but I was DAMN good at my job. I was crazy fast at making drinks (but honestly super messy…) and I loved it. I was constantly trying to come up with new drinks to try that were yummy, but also not loaded with calories/carbs. It’s been a couple years since I … Continue reading How this ex-barista makes her coffee at home
So now that you know about our crazy small wedding, let me tell you about our (in my opinion) HUGE after party. When I say after… I mean AFTER. A month after… Kevin and I agreed to have a small wedding… But he still wanted to have a party. I can’t blame the man. Receptions are the best part of any wedding! Shortly after announcing … Continue reading Our Shabby Chic Farm Reception
Now that both our engagement sessions are documented (Ikea and Fed Hill) I suppose it’s time we move on to the wedding part of the story. I’m going to back this WAY up because it makes a good story. Just bear with me. I never dreamed of my wedding as a kid. I thought ball gowns were pretty because I watched Cinderella and had a Barbie birthday one … Continue reading Moist-Peck Wedding, Party of 8
It’s been just over a year and a half years since we Adopted Daisy… It seems like it was yesterday! She has become our child during that time, but just like almost all kids… She had a bratty phase. When we first met Daisy, she was timid and honestly didn’t give two shits about us. And by that, I mean she went and took a shit … Continue reading Training Ms. Daisy
I think you guys know I like to DIY. As much as I enjoy convenience, I enjoy saving a little bit of money too. Plus, when I make something, I know EXACTLY what is in it. I’m not trying to scare you, but do you ever read the ingredients in some of your beauty products? Spoiler alert: There’s a BUNCH of crap in most of … Continue reading The Easiest Face Mask Ever
If you read my post on our Ikea Engagement session, you know the beginning of this story. If you didn’t, you should go check it out here! So after we took (and got back, because Laura is a beast at editing!) our Ikea pictures, we finally went to Fed Hill. To be totally honest, we don’t spend tons of time in Baltimore. When we lived in … Continue reading Federal Hill Engagement Session
Let me start by saying that I pretty much have the least “artistic eye” out of everyone I know. I am creative, don’t get me wrong. But I’m creative in the way that I can come up with new ideas in no time flat, not in the way that I can draw or paint or sculpt. Creative, not artsy, get it? So when we moved … Continue reading Living Room Gallery Wall
Again, I’m just going to assume you know me. If you don’t, here’s what you need to know. My full name should be Stephanie “glutton for punishment” Peck. I’m happiest when I’m busy, productive, and boarder-line about to drown. If I don’t have 75,000 things going on, I do nothing. NOTHING. I’ll rewatch How I Met Your Mother or Parks and Rec for the … Continue reading How to Plan a Wedding in Under 4 Months without Killing Anyone
If you know us, and I’m just going to assume you do… You’ll know that our lives changed drastically in 2016. We basically did every adult thing you can (except have a baby) in one year. I’m going to chronicle the whole thing, but let’s start at the beginning. Sometime in 2011: In usual Steph fashion, I told Kevin he had five years to propose … Continue reading Ikea… For Engagement Pictures?!
