Gift Card Giveaway

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry140 Comments

If you are anything like me, you are in love with Williams-Sonoma. Really, how can you not be? It seems like every time I walk into that store, I leave realizing there are about a hundred things I don’t have in my kitchen that I need. Alas, my eyes are bigger than my tiny apartment kitchen so I usually stick to window-shopping and browsing. Doing a lot of oooh-ing and ahh-ing along the way. Maybe I should get to the … Read More

Fluffer-Nutter Bars

In by Madison Mayberry6 Comments

It has come to my knowledge that there is something called a fluffernutter sandwich. I had heard of such a sandwich before, but was never quite sure if it really existed or if it was just an urban myth. Most certainly no such sandwich was part of my childhood, but then again, I didn’t eat my first peanut butter and jelly sandwich until I was in 7th grade. I was a strange kid. So to satisfy my curiosity, I got … Read More

A Day In The Life: Tuesday’s Eats

In by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a little look into what my daily eats look like. Between my six mile run yesterday, lifting and my five mile run today, I’ve been one hungry girl! Mornings start pretty early in my apartment (I’m usually up and making breakfast between 5 and 5:30) and I find myself needing to snack on something every couple of hours to prevent a total blood sugar crash. Breakfast*16 oz. water*Cup of coffee with 2% milk … Read More

Lemon Parmesan Israeli Couscous

When I was in college, one of the most wonderful things about going home was knowing that my mom would have a wonderful meal waiting for my arrival. After driving four hours, usually at night after class, there was nothing better than sitting down to a big bowl of hot beef stew with her famous buttermilk biscuits. So when my mom let me know she was going to visit me this weekend to work on wedding crafts, I knew I … Read More

Breakfast Muffies

In by Madison Mayberry7 Comments

You know those special pans you can buy at specialty cooking stores that are designed to help you create muffin tops or ‘muffies’? Yeah, I don’t have one of those pans, but I am most certainly a fan of muffin tops. Unless we’re talking about muffin tops above your jeans. Definitely not a fan of those. The good news about these muffies? They won’t give you a muffin top. In fact, they’re actually quite healthy, made with mashed bananas, whole … Read More

Wacky for Wedding Hair

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry13 Comments

I’ve know that lately I’ve been pretty quiet on the wedding front. So quiet, in fact, that maybe you forgot it’s happening all together. Not to worry, it’s still on. It’s just that after thinking it over, I decided that I wanted the big day to be special and filled with lots of surprises for our guests, so the detail-sharing has been staying under wraps for the most part. But today, I felt like talking wedding hair, since it seems … Read More
