Friday Frenzy #16: Waterlogged Edition

You know it is going to be an interesting phone call when you mom starts with, “I have a story that will beat your racoon story.” This is what she proceeds to tell me… My mom likes to go walking with our neighbor in the morning before work. They are good friends and enjoy getting […]

Friday Frenzy #15: Cardboard Boxes Edition

Whew, has it ever been a busy week! We are gearing up for #Choctoberfest next month, and I have also been helping to organize a Halloween event for the animal shelter where I work. It seems like I blinked and it is Friday again! This week, the animal shelter received a cat bed tower donation […]

Friday Frenzy #13: Bug Out Edition

The horrible devastation happening in Texas right now has been a reminder to me and Jeffrey… we need to make a bug out bag. I had one when I lived in Alexandria (outside of DC), in case I needed to get out of town quickly. When I moved, it got dismantled, and I just have […]

Friday Frenzy #12: End of Summer Edition

This summer has been incredible busy. I know I say that every year, but with the wedding and then the reception, plus work and volunteering… crazy. We haven’t even spent any time at the beach, which is ridiculous considering we can literally walk to the end of our street, look right, and see the beach. […]

Friday Frenzy #11: Full House Edition

Right now, I’m in Pennsylvania for a wedding reception. My wedding reception, in fact! Jeffrey and I got married back in June, but because we live so far away from most of our friends and family, we wanted to have a big party that everyone could attend. I’m staying at my parent’s house, and there […]

Friday Frenzy #10: Cookie Edition

Next week, we are having a reception to celebrate getting married back in June. Jeffrey and I just went to the courthouse, because we didn’t want a big ceremony… but we certainly aren’t going to pass up the chance to throw a party for all our friends and family! As a favor, I of course […]

Friday Frenzy #9: Food Blogger Edition

For today’s Friday Frenzy, I wanted to do something a little different and share some of the tips and tools I use as a food blogger. If you are not a blogger and just here for the recipes, scroll down to get to the deliciousness. If you are a food blogger or considering starting a […]

Friday Frenzy #8: Raccoon Edition

OMG do I have a story for y’all today! A few nights ago, we were sitting in the living room watching TV, and suddenly I heart this rumbling coming from under the house and suddenly…. A RACCOON POPS OUT OF THE VENT. A raccoon, y’all. In my living room! Jeffrey and I just froze and […]

Friday Frenzy #7: Summer Camp Edition

You guys… I am so tired right now. For the past week, I’ve been running a summer camp for 6-10 year old kids at the animal shelter where I volunteer. Man, kids are exhausting. I’ve literally fallen asleep at like 9 PM every night this week. The best conversation of the week: Camper #1, age […]

Friday Frenzy #6: The Humidity Edition

I don’t know what the whether has been like where you live, but here in Virginia, it has been HOT. Like, brutally hot, because not only is the temp reaching in the high 90s or low 100s every day, but it is also steamy and humid like a sauna out there. I usually work outside […]

Friday Frenzy #5: Tiny Kitchen Edition

For a food blogger, I have a tiny kitchen. I mean TINY. There are only a few small spots of counter space, and even though the cabinets are very tall, there’s still not much storage space. Only one person can comfortably be in there at a time. Luckily, Jeffrey isn’t in there very often (unless […]

Friday Frenzy #4: #CookoutWeek Edition

It’s #CookoutWeek here at The PinterTest Kitchen! And it’s Friday… so you know what that means… It is also Friday Frenzy, our weekly celebration of delicious recipes and fun craft projects from bloggers around the world. This week, it was my turn to pick the features, and I found some awesome cookout-themed posts for y’all. […]

Friday Frenzy #3: Getting Married Edition

This weekend, my sister Jessica is coming down from Pennsylvania to visit us in Norfolk, Virginia… and she’s coming for a very special reason… Jeffrey and I are (finally) getting married! We aren’t have a huge wedding. In fact, we aren’t having any wedding at all. We are going to the courthouse and having a […]

Friday Frenzy Link Party #2: Cute and Cuddly Edition

Something you might not know about me is that I volunteer at a local animal rescue. I had been looking for a volunteer opportunity, but every time I tried to get involved, I couldn’t make it work. Jeffrey and I only have 1 vehicle, so he has to be able to drop off/pick up on […]

Friday Frenzy Link Party #1: New Beginnings and Blogger Friends

When I first started blogging here at The PinterTest Kitchen, one of my favorite ways to find new recipes, drive traffic, and connect with more bloggers was to join link parties. For those of you who are not bloggers, a “link party” is simply a collection of links to awesome blog posts across the Internet. […]
