I’m going to do something crazy.

By Thursday, August 21, 2014 Permalink

I’m going to start blogging five days a week. And yes, I might be completely nuts. But I’ve spent so much time thinking about what I’m truly passionate about, and it’s without a doubt this little blog. Adding another two posts a week (I currently post three – two recipes and Over a cup of tea) might ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, August 11, 2014 Permalink

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd tell you I had the BEST two-week vacation ever! This is the first time post-university that I've taken vacation in Nova Scotia and it was well worth it. I talked about my cousin's wedding last Monday, but the week following was amazing too ...

The Domestic Blonde Website Redesign!

By Thursday, July 31, 2014 Permalink

Hi everyone! As I hinted on Monday, for the last month I’ve been working with a web designer. I am so incredibly excited to reveal the new site. You’re looking at the (almost) finished product! The re-design was long overdue. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but kept telling  myself to wait until ...

Nutella Cupakes

By Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Permalink

NUTELLA. Need I really say more? These are silly they're so good. Are you a Nutella fan? I go back and forth. As a kid I loved it, but as an adult I go through phases. I certainly don't love it for breakfast like the commercials suggest - I'd rather peanut butter. My Other Half doesn't really eat ...

Over a cup of tea…

If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d tell you I just had the best weekend for my cousin’s bachelorette party! We rented a beautiful lakefront home between Toronto and Ottawa and it was prefect. We made delicious food, spent a day down on the dock, and played silly games. Now I'm wishing ...

Over a cup of tea…

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I’d tell you that lately, I am... Eating / Mango, avocado and lots of salads. Totally unlike me. Drinking / Cider, cider and more cider. Preferably Magners, but I’ll take what I can get. Practicing / Taking it one day at a time, and not getting too ...

My First and Last Half-Marathon!

By Monday, May 26, 2014 Permalink

Instead of my regular "Over a cup of tea" post this morning, I'm sharing the story of my first (and last!) half-marathon, which I completed yesterday.  I am still alive – although barely – and successfully completed the Ottawa Race Weekend Scotiabank Half-Marathon! A little bit of background information before we get into the race day story - ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, April 28, 2014 Permalink

If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d have wedding news! Well, kinda. My girls have begun getting sized for their bridesmaids dresses and I am just madly in love with them. The dresses and the girls, that is. They are so gorgeous and the dresses are so elegant! It made me super ...

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd say Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm not Irish (even though people often assume I am because of my strawberry-blonde hair) but you know me - I love any excuse to celebrate! I also love themed parties, so I had a few girlfriends over ...

Our Halifax Engagement Party

By Thursday, March 13, 2014 Permalink

When we were home for Christmas, we were so fortunate my parents threw us an engagement party at their house! We'd only been engaged a month so we were still buzzing with excitement. It was fabulous to see all the friends in Halifax we miss terribly. Thank you everyone for coming and celebrating with us!

Our Love Story

By Monday, January 27, 2014 Permalink

In lieu of a regular Monday "Over a cup of tea" post , I'm sharing our love story! I hope you all enjoy reading about how we met, began dating and six years later became engaged. It was February 8th, 2008. I was 20 years old and halfway through my second year of university at Carleton. ...

Our Engagement Story

By Monday, January 6, 2014 Permalink

If you hadn’t already heard, we’re getting married! Most of you know that writing normally comes naturally to me, but it’s taken a pretty long time to muster up the strength to write about the biggest day of my life. It has taken a lot of courage to share it with the world! I hope you’ll ...

We’re Engaged!!!

By Monday, December 9, 2013 Permalink

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning… I’d tell you My Other Half proposed and I said yes!!! Even as I write this, I still can’t really believe it. We’re engaged!!! It doesn’t feel real yet. I am so incredibly happy and we are both over the moon with excitement! We kept the ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, October 28, 2013 Permalink

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I’d tell you I’m 26!!! I had a fabulous birthday weekend filled with my best friends, incredible wine, food and celebrations. To say I am a spoiled brat is an understatement. On Friday night, My Other Half took me to Supply & Demand in ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, October 21, 2013 Permalink

If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d tell you that the fall is going by way too quickly. I thought it was still summer, like, a minute ago?! Now everywhere I look there are pumpkins and leaves on the group. And pretty trees. It’s freaking me out. Mostly because I’ve started thinking ...

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I’d tell you I’m wearing boots. Like, winter boots. For the first time this season. And I’m not impressed. Although the colder weather does mean my fall vacation is getting closer… but I still hate winter. If we were chatting over a cup of tea, ...

Blogiversary #3!

By Saturday, September 28, 2013 Permalink

I have a really good memory for dates. Birthdays, anniversaries... dates in general. I'm the kind of girlfriend who hands My Other Half a birthday card for his best friend a week early and tells him to write in it and mail it (and his best friend definitely knows this, so it's all good). I have no ...
