Saturday – Memorial Day Edition

For Sister Spice, Mister Spice, and our mom (mommy Herb?) school is out! Memorial Day weekend is here already!

Saturday – Bahamas Edition


Mr. Herb and I spent this past week on our very first cruise to the Bahamas! It was a lot of fun! We got to visit Ardastra Gardens and Zoo in Nassau, chill out in a hammock on the beach, swim in the beautiful clear waters of the Caribbean, and take a bicycle tour of Freeport. Yay for vacation!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is my Dad’s 58th birthday.  This is the man who taught me how to fish, shoot a basketball, hit a baseball, and who has provided for me for all of my 27 years on Earth.  Normally, Mrs. Herb and I would probably fix him a Butterscotch Pie but we celebrated by eating at Carrabba’s instead.  Happy Birthday, Dad!

Saturday – Vacation is Soon!

This is in my near future! Well, something similar, anyway. Mr. Herb and I are going on a cruise at the end of next week!

Boston Strong

Boston, MA

In the summer of 2010, for our one-year wedding anniversary, Mister Spice and I took a two-week road trip that began in Washington, D.C. and ended in Boston, MA.  We LOVED everything about Boston, from the baseball…

Saturday – Tax Day Edition!

Mr. and Mrs. Herb

Mrs. Herb here, and I AM EXCITED! Why, you ask?! Because this is the last Saturday of tax season! You see, when I’m not cooking, baking, and spending time with my wonderful husband and two kitties, I’m working my day job as a tax accountant. So of course, tax season ends this Monday, April 15th, and my life will reach a more slowed, summery pace. And THAT’S why I’m excited!

Goodbye Old Blue

I have one word for you: SPOILED.

And no, it’s not in reference to food that’s gone bad. In fact, today I don’t have anything to say about food, but rather, I would like to share why the word spoiled so rightfully applies to me.

Saturday – Easter Edition

Happy Day Before Easter!

Mrs. Herb here. We celebrated my birthday allllll week long! For my family celebration, I requested my favorite meal be made, and It. Was. Delicious. The picture above is of my plate! YUM!

Happy Palm Sunday!

Palm Sunday

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Palm Sunday. It’s very frigid here in Northeast Tennessee with promises of snow this week, so it’s hard to believe that next Sunday is Easter. As you plan your Easter menus, don’t forget about Sweet Potato Casserole, Crock Pot Mac N’ Cheese, and Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie!  Our family goes all out for Easter as we celebrate Christ’s ultimate sacrifice to pay our debt.  Have a wonderful Palm Sunday as we prepare for Holy Week!

Time for a New Year!!!


This time last year, my friend Alex and I were on our way to Dandridge, Tennessee, to fulfill a New Year’s Resolution we had made. Without telling anyone what we were up to (and definitely not my parents or Herb!), we went SKYDIVING for the very first time!
