White Laces/The War on Drugs – 9:30 Club

The War on Drugs asked White Laces to join them on their North American tour. My boyfriend plays bass for White Laces, so of course we were thrilled! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you probably already knew about this tour, but here are some of my photos from their tour-closing tour at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. Thanks for bearing with me on a post that’s not food-related! xoxo

Easy and Delicious Slow Cooker Pho

If there’s one food I eat at least once a week (besides wine), it’s pho. That’s right, the butt of all “pho-king” jokes people make.

While the temperature reached 33 at one point today, the chill in my toes never left, so I knew I needed a warm drink when I got home. My absolute favorite warm cocktail is a hot toddy, but I was out of lemons, so I made up a twist on the classic and ended up loving it even more! Continue reading
