Peanut-Walnut Butter

In by Madison Mayberry7 Comments

Since we have been married, Joey has been shocked at the amount of peanut butter I consume each week. When, like me, you eat a couple tablespoons of the stuff each day, it doesn’t last long. Instead of picking up another jar of Smuckers Natural Creamy Peanut Butter, I decided last week that it would be fun to start making my own nut butter again. It’s an amazingly simple process to whirl together your own nut butter, and I love … Read More

Last week I had Friday off from work and got the opportunity to watch what really goes on in our house when the little princess rules the roost. Man, I tell you, it’s tough being a dog. Hope you all had a wonderful day! Madison

Homemade Almond Joy Candy Bars

In by Madison Mayberry15 Comments

  Hey, friends! I hope you had a great weekend. My mom spent the weekend with us, which meant Joey and I spent the weekend trying to keep up with her. We played tennis, grilled out and went on an 8-mile run this morning. Exactly how I like to spend my weekend.  For as long as I remember, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of making my own candy bars. I don’t really have a clue why, since I can’t … Read More

I’m Not a Fashion Blogger…

In Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

{Dress: Target this spring; Blazer: Forever 21; Shoes: Cole Haan via TJ Maxx; Necklace: Banana Republic; Glasses: Claire’s}  …but I kinda wish I was. Although there are plenty of amazing, high-end fashion bloggers out there, it wasn’t until I started reading Kendi Everyday that I really got inspired. Kendi is so real, down-to-earth, funny, and she wears clothes normal people can actually find and afford. She’s totally my girl crush, can you tell? I am, by no means, the expert … Read More

You see, Joey has no intention of going vegetarian, so we’ve … Read More

A Fund For Jennie Auction! (Now Closed)

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry3 Comments

There have been many times since I started blogging that I’ve been thankful and proud to be part of such a caring and giving group of individuals. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been blown away with the love and support that the blogging community has shown Jennifer Perillo, who I mentioned a few weeks back lost her husband to a sudden heart attack, leaving behind two young daughters ages 3 and 8. In the wake of his death, bloggers … Read More

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Ice Cream

In by Madison Mayberry5 Comments

   This weekend, something so amazing came out of my ice cream maker that I can hardly believe it was me who made it. Chocolate and peanut butter are a killer combination in every form, but chocolate and peanut butter together in cheesecake ice cream form? Absolutely killer. I could keep rambling about how the subtle chocolate flavor compliments the creamy peanut butter perfectly. Or comment on how the cream cheese adds a perfect bit of tang and makes for … Read More

The ‘After’ Photo

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry10 Comments

Guys, I chickened out. Me, the girl who is typically fearless when it comes to hair color, decided ‘why mess with something I’m happy with’ and stuck with a shade of blonde. Of course, I couldn’t do the exact same thing, so I went slightly darker with a few more lowlights and warmth, which I think is fitting for fall. And I added some longer bangs, too. Although it’s not all that different, I’m thrilled with the subtle change. If … Read More

The Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe You’ll Ever Need

In by Madison Mayberry2 Comments

I don’t like to over-promise on a recipe, and I’m not fond of people who exaggerate. This post title claims that this is the only chocolate chip cookie recipe you will ever need. And it’s neither an over-promise nor an exaggeration. This is the real-deal, the most amazing cookie I’ve ever made, and a big hit in our house. I’ve owned a copy of Desserts By The Yard by Sherry Yard for almost a year now. It’s a beautiful book … Read More

Hair Talk Thursday

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry19 Comments

I’m going to let you in on a little (not so) secret about me: I love to experiment with my hair. Over the years, I’ve had a lot of different hair colors and styles, never able to stick to one for very long, some more successful than others. Let’s take a little walk down memory lane, shall we?    Why, you might be asking yourself, am I posting about hair? Because I need your opinions, friends! I have a hair … Read More
