• ROCK THE BUMP: FRINGE + RIPS

    Oh hi!  I hope everyone is having a GREAT week!  I have been in the Boston area all week for work and am now jet-setting to Napa to meet the hubs.  YAY!  And what better time to kick off my new series: ROCK THE BUMP!  In an effort to inspire your most stylish bump, I will be compiling a collection of not-so-maternity, maternity options.  And the great news??  You don’t have to be preggo to wear these styles.  I have been avoiding traditional maternity clothes like the plague, so these options will work for anyone! Right now, I am all…

    AMAZING Paleo Cheesecake Bites

    Do you LOVE cheesecake or what?  I know I do, but it is SUCH a splurge.  Well, if you love it as much as I do, you will ADORE these AMAZING PALEO CHEESECAKE BTIES. They are seriously TO-DIE for and are both gluten-free and dairy free.  WHAT??  How is that possible??   And here is a question for ya: who invented the salted caramel combination?  Peas and carrots, peanut butter and jelly, green eggs and ham…those are all great, but give me SALTED CARAMEL anytime, any day and you have a  friend for life.  I know what you are thinking: there…

    Bumpdate: 17 Weeks

    Wow, I cannot believe it has been 3 weeks since my last update!  Time is flying by!  As you can see from the pictures above that was me at 14 weeks (can’t believe I am putting my bare belly on the internet) compared to me now at 17 weeks.  So much has changed, but overall I feel awesome.  Now that the Lutz Bump is in action, look for more ways to #stylethebump.  I am not going to lie, maternity fashion is MUCH harder than I expected.  I am trying to stay true to what I love, but these body changes…

    HALLER.

    How amazing does that dish look?  Those are Buckwheat Blinis with Gravlax, Creme Fraiche, Caviar and Dill.  Are you hungry yet?   Several weeks ago, the hubs and I hosted a vertical wine dinner at our house that focused on Chateau Beaucastel wines from the Southern Rhone region.  We were so happy to host this wonderful event that supported local Alabama charities and The Tum Tum Tree Foundation.  The food+the company+the wine…the event was spectacular! However, the food stole the show.  Chef Haller Magee truly brought down the house with his seemingly effortless, yet eclectic dishes.  He literally took over our kitchen creating a pop…
