DIY Tea Party

I am so excited to share today’s post! I’ve been wanting to do a tea party for ages and I finally got a chance to do it a week ago. The weather was great, the sun came out and I felt like I could conquer the world! Does anyone else feel like that when the weather is good? I guess you can say I did the tea party to celebrate the sun! haha (Warning: there will be a lot of exclamation points in this post!!) For it, I made a banner, a few finger foods, set up a table, bought some flowers and put it all together. Flowers literally make everything better in my opinion! If you are ever having trouble setting up for anything, just buy flowers! I like getting them from Trader Joe’s, they are surprisingly affordable and have so much beautiful variety. To set the table, I mostly…

Philly Cheesesteak Puff Pastry

On Super Bowl Sunday, a couple of weeks ago, we had a party and I tried my hand at something new. I’ve been seeing puff pastry dough and crescent roll dough being used in so many cool appetizers that I knew I had to make something utilizing them too. For that day, I chose puff pastry and decided to stuff it with cheese, steak, onions and bell peppers.     Ingredients: -2 sheet of puff pastry dough -2 packs of sliced provolone cheese -1 lb rib eye steak (or flank steak) -1 onion -1 bell pepper -1 tsp salt -1 tsp garlic powder -1 tsp paprika -1 tsp onion powder -1 garlic clove, minced -1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or a mixture) -1 beaten egg -1 tsp sriracha (optional) Instructions: 1. Preheat the oven to 400F and line baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. Cut steak into small pieces, sprinkle them with…

Pennsylvania Farm Show 2017 – The Photo Version

A month ago, I shared my Pennsylvania Farm Show Snapchat story with you. And today I would like to share my photos from that day so you can see how incredible it really is. There is lots to see and do…and eat!  It’s the largest indoor agriculture exposition in the ocuntry which features over 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300 commercial exhibits. It usually happens in January, for two weeks.  I went with a couple of friends around 7.30 PM which apparently was the perfect time to go because it wasn’t too crowded at the time (it closes at 9). Since I had seen it before, I mainly went for two things, milkshakes and fried cheese! But in order to work up an appetite, we walked through all the animals first…and the free food samples section. lol… A tip: you want to make sure you watch where you are…

DIY Yarn Wall Hanging

So, upon seeing countless boho style wall hangings on Pinterest, I decided I’d take a go at it myself. They all looked like they’d be very inexpensive and easy to make. And most of them utilized my favorite material from the backyard…a tree branch! lol For this project, I took inspiration from The Good Time Home Store Blog. What you’ll need: – yarn of your choice -a cool looking tree branch -scissors -ruler (optional) What you do: 1. Cut yarn into long pieces, all about the same size (you will cut them down to your desired length later) 2. Once they are all cut, tie them to the branch by folding the yarn in half and then looping it around the branch and through the hole. (like in the picture above) 3. Hang them all in your desired order. 4. After you are done tying all the yarn pieces to the…
