Country Meets City Living

I recently finished my decor in my new kitchen. I am loving the rustic country touches in my city apartment. Simple colors and country charm… The bread box and shelve are from Hobby Lobby. The candle and plugin are from Bath and Body Works. Lights are from ACE Hardware.

Monday Evening in St Paul

Hope everyone had a great Monday. It was a beautiful, warm day here in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Unfortunately, word on the street is we are supposed to get smacked with a little winter storm this week! Yuck! I’m praying the weather forecast will change. We were very spoiled the last couple of days and Minnesota…

Yoga at Union Depot

I love Saint Paul for many reasons, but one of the best things about Saint Paul is the activities in the city. Every Saturday, Union Depot has free yoga at 9 am. The instructors are from Studio 925 and they do a great job. I am always comfortable and the poses are for all levels….

Leftover Roast Stew

When we cook a roast for just the two of us, we usually have a couple of days of leftovers. We recently purchased a Instant Pot and love it. On Sunday we made a roast and on Tuesday I created a quick leftover stew. My roast was a beef sirloin tip roast with a side…

Lots of Snow and Frigid Temps

Minnesota is breaking records for 2019 for the amount of snow and below zero temperatures. Perfect for winter sports and of course, great pictures…

Serving Our Troops- 2018

On Thursday, September 20th, Serving Our Troops partnered, once again, with the Minnesota National Guard to host the soldiers, families and friends of the 34th Red Bull Infantry Division at the Saint Paul RiverCentre. There was a fantastic steak dinner in conjunction with the official deployment ceremony. I personally volunteered for the first time and…

April in Minnesota

We had a SNEAK PEAK of spring here in Minnesota a couple of weeks ago. However, as history repeats itself here in Minnesota, winter is back. In Minnesota, we always refer to the weather as indecisive. Our weather never seems to know what it wants to do. Some of the trees already have buds on…
