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

I've got a super busy and fun weekend ahead so I'm dropping in for a quick Five Things Friday today! Hope you all have a fantastic Friday and weekend ahead!

The Avengers in 3-D fun

We saw it last night and it was great! You know I can't resist anything with Robert Downey Jr.


Eggs Benedict brunch

We had brunch on Sunday with my parents to celebrate Shaun's birthday at our favorite Jersey City spot, The Lighthorse Tavern. Always A-mazing.

Fun NYC billboards

Manhattan Mini Storage always has the best billboards! So clever and funny. This is my current favorite.

A Weekend in Atlantic City

Shaun and I are headed down there this afternoon for a weekend getaway! It's actually his birthday present from me. I'm so excited to have a nice couple of days down the shore, eating at great restaurants, staying in a hotel, perhaps a little gambling and maybe even some beach time tomorrow? It's supposed to be gorgeous out, so we will see :)

Celebrating Mom

Sunday is Mother's Day so we will be celebrating the wonderful moms in our life. Brunch with my family and dinner with Shaun's.

So that's my story on this gorgrous Friday morning. I hope that you have a great one!

What are your *things* this week?

it's a gorgeous friday here, too! sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned. we do, too! i think a quiet night at home tonight, then a big day tomorrow: zumba with my girl friends in the morning, then the Steeplechase races tomorrow afternoon (it's like Nashville's version of the Kentucky Derby), then a mexican dinner out with my au pair group Saturday night! Sunday we're also doing a mother's day brunch with my in-laws. should be a great weekend for all of us! xo

Have a wonderful weekend!

we saw The Avengers last weekend. RDJ was at his best! I think your 3-D glasses are way cooler than ours!
