Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

Cunningham’s Bakery

Fall 2015

Hello, dolls!! Hello, memorial day weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚ I feel like I am in Manila again because of the weather! Seriously, it’s not even summer yet but it feels like it. Now I understand why pregnant women are extra moody when it’s hot —ย the level of discomfort is x100! back pain, nausea, and sweat!

June is around the corner meaning…I will be seeing my parents in a week and our little love a couple of days/weeks after that! ๐Ÿ™‚ Our excitement in meeting him is building up everyday!ย Which reminds me…I have to finish organizing is nursery SOON! yikes

A lot of people go to the beach on memorial day weekend. This year,since we still have a couple of things to do around the house (and since I look like a giant watermelon) we decided to stay here in Baltimore.

One of my favorite cafes here in Baltimore isย Cunningham’s.ย

Mainly, because of the pastries! I love how it’s close to our house cause I know that whenever I feel like getting my “awesome pastry fix” I can go there.

Monday dinner with friends โค

We love having Peter and Ali for dinner because it’s a great excuse to experiment at home ๐Ÿ˜‰ ….andbecause, what better way to spend our day off? With great company of course!

“the meat platter”

For this platter, the idea is to serve the protein with the perfect side or sauce that goes with it. I am happy with how everything came out. Of course, I used our butcher’s block again to use as a serving dish and I am happy I did!

“skillet of veggies”

Seasonal vegetables — nothing fancy. Sometimes, the best way to enjoy vegetables is to just simply cook them!
