The Year of Root Beer

rb3Root Beer, the other soda. According to Wikipedia it was made by farmers in the 1800’s and was first introduced commercially by Charles Hires at the Philadelphia Centennial Convention in 1876. Thanks Charles!! rb2We love Root Beer and we’re on a quest to discover the best one. We’ve found a bunch of  different brands that we will be testing out over the next 12 months. Some of them are familiar and some are a little obscure. We’ve come up with a grading scale to rate each brand on creaminess, flavor, carbonation, packaging, and overall experience. We will be posting our results here on the blog. As of right now, we have about 14 different brands in mind but we are absolutely open to any and all root beer suggestions!rb1What’s you favorite brand of Root Beer? We want to know!

Nailed It!

3d13D nails! Aren’t these so fun! I know I say this ALL THE TIME, but I think these are some of my faves.
I feel old saying this but speaking of 3D, I am not a fan of the movies. They make me feel like a crazy person and I will usually end up with an eye ache. I just don’t want to feel like I’m flying  or have explosions going off in my face. No thanks. 3d2POLL: As far as movies go, do you prefer 2D or 3D?

love and soup

soup1I’m not sure if I’ve ever discussed this on the blog, but I don’t cook… unless you could that one time I sort of made homemade pizza on Valentines day with heart shaped pepperonis. I say I “sort of” made it because after 2 failed attempts at rolling the dough I called a local pizza place (Pizza Boy shout out!) and asked them to roll it out for me on my own pan. Anyway, I like the idea of cooking and I do own like 27 aprons, it’s just not my thing. Growing up, my mom cooked dinner (and lots of times lunch and breakfast) most days of the week. Other than her asking me to turn on the oven or maybe butter up some garlic bread, I didn’t participate much in the cooking/meal preparation department. When I moved out, I ate a lot of sandwiches, yogurt, hummus + crackers, and ice cream. So, mostly things I could just grab and eat because I was/am lazy.soup2When I got married all of that changed. Ray cooks and he cook well. Last night he made kale, potato and spicy sausage soup and it was SO delicious. We generally have a lot of things going on during the week nights and it’s so nice to come home, sit at the table and have a home cooked meal with the person you love the cream 1I also had an ice cream sandwich, made with my mom’s homemade chocolate chip cookies, after dinner which was the perfect ending to a delicious meal.
