Collective Espresso – Cincinnati, OH

This past weekend one of my dear friends got married in Cincinnati. For as close as Cincinnati is to Indianapolis (and given that my brother lived there a few years after college), it’s surprising how little I’ve explored the city. We were lucky enough to get the weekend “baby free”, thanks to my parents watching

5 Travel Must Haves

It has been a crazy start to 2017. This past week alone, I was on a plane Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday. Kyle & I already have 14 Marriott nights combined, which doesn’t include the past 4 nights staying with Kyle’s parents. That adds up to over 1/3 of the year being spent OUTSIDE our house.

Night Out at Nada

We’ve been dying to check out Nada, a modern Mexican restaurant in downtown Indianapolis.  A couple weeks ago, we decided to go for an early dinner and bring Aidan (which is always a risk) and meet up with a friend. This place is always packed, so we were thankful to get there before the crowds

Ashford Castle dates back to 1228 in County Mayo, about 30-45 minutes outside of Galway. I had heard about Ashford Castle in a blog post on Gal Meets Glam & convinced Kyle to spend one of our

The Indianapolis Zoo

This weekend we went with my parents to the Indianapolis Zoo. It was Kyle’s first time there (and Aidan’s of course), and has been almost a decade since the last time I went. After living in Lincoln Park & being frequent Lincoln Park Zoo visitors (I mean, it’s a FREE zoo!), Kyle & I have

The Dancing Donut

 One of my favorite cupcake shops in Indianapolis is the Flying Cupcake. When I was at Butler, I was a frequent visitor of their N. Illinois location. The red velvet Elvis was my go-to, although they are all really fantastic. Since then, they’ve expanded out to Carmel and down to Mass Ave and everywhere in
