Hi, I'm Rachel.

A few years ago I could barely boil water.

True story.

Determined to be a kick ass wife, I developed a love for football and learned to cook in my tiny Jersey City kitchen. I spend my days working in Manhattan, my nights and weekends chasing after a rambunctious toddler, and the hours in between cooking with my husband and feeding my TV habit...oh, and I blog about it all!

Five Things Friday

It's Friday, which means that I'm rounding up five things I'm digging this week!

The whole family in New Mexico

plus, me rocking the F21 blouse that was such a hit on last week's FTF!


{finally} deciding on our paint colors for our apartment.

Benjamin Moore's Sweet Bluette, a very light & subtle gray blue for entryway, kitchen, living room & den (all of which are open to each other)

Benjamin Moore's Beacon Gray, a deeper gray blue and just a shade or 2 darker than Sweet Bluette, for the accent wall in the den. I know it looks like a subtle change on-screen, but in person it's gorg!

Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter, a light greige, for our bedroom and master bath.


The return of the scarf.

I'm ready! Especially for this sweet J. Crew version.

adorable candy corn cupcakes from Kojo Designs.

spooky Halloween costumes.

like our upcoming zombie costumes! we usually do a couples costume, but I don't think I've ever been anything scary before (at least not for Halloween :)) here's our inspiration photos:

creepy, right? for some of our Halloween costumes past, see this article.


So there you have it! My five things for this week. Have a great Friday and a fun pre-Halloween weekend!

Question of the day:

What are you digging this week?

Those cupcakes looks devine! I'm definitely resentful of being GF this time of year! I'm going to make a list of all of the candy that I CAN eat! Love the pictures of your family - you and your sisters look so alike!
