My mother makes the best potato salad! It is a simple recipe, potatoes, celery, seasoned salt, Hellmann’s mayo and lots of LOVE. I have watched her make it for years and still have not been able to get the same flavor. I decided that instead of trying to do what she does, I should add my own FLAVOR to this classic dish. I think it turned out really well.
Here’s the recipe, let me know what you think.

We have a really nice restaurant in our neighborhood that is only open for breakfast and lunch. My family loves going there for breakfast but our favorite dish is their chicken salad. I don't know what it is that makes it soooo good but we just can't get enough of it! I think part of their secret is to keep it simple. Chelsea and I were trying to think of something for dinner last night and decided we wanted Meghan's chicken salad. Of course they close at 2:00pm so that was not gonna happen. We decided to make it ourselves. We were pleasantly surprise at h... Continue Reading

Shout out to my friends in Boston!! What a great city!! James, Lauren, Chelsea and my sister Cathy and I visited Boston this past weekend for the Navy vs. Boston University lacrosse game. I have only been to Boston once to visit the Clarks offices. It was a quick trip with no time for sightseeing. I have only heard wonderful things about the city and the people of Boston and that was enough to make me/us want to make a weekend out of it.
We stayed at XV Beacon, a beautiful boutique hotel, right in the heart of the city. The game was Satu... Continue Reading

Lauren & I were trying to find quick and easy breakfast ideas. We both start the day very early and we need something with protein that we can heat up in the microwave. She found this recipe on Pinterest. We tweaked it a little. You can make them the day before and put them in the freezer. Pop them in the microwave in the morning for a few minutes. Yummy!

I was so honored to be invited to Linda Davies' daughter’s bridal shower this past weekend. Meghan will be marrying her high school sweetheart, Matt, in May.
As a gift, I created this fun towel cake. I have been making towel cakes as my signature gift for years. Every new couple needs towels and this is a fun and creative way to present them!
I asked Linda what the color theme is for Meghan's wedding and used that as the accent color. Linda's daughter’s Meghan & Sarah are identical twins. After all these years I still can't tell them a... Continue Reading

My teapot collection started when I was still living at home. I was in the basement and came across several boxes, opened them and inside were three beautiful teapots. I asked my mother where them came from and she said they were wedding presents. I thought these are to pretty to be in boxes and not displayed. Not long after that I met James. When he took me to meet his parents for the first time I was blow away by the collection of teapots his mother had. She collected them from the many places she has visited over the years. I have about 25 my mother... Continue Reading
