Special delivery.

We got a big package box in the mail from JJVE today…

Inside were two six packs…

We’ve had the 10 Barrel Brewing Cucumber Crush Sour before and it is delicious…

But we’ve never even heard of Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout before…

We’re really excited to try it. Thanks, JJVE! That’s pretty darn awesome of you! Cheers!


Today was National Pizza Day! We celebrated by heading over to one our very favorite spots, Taft’s Brewpourium

My parents gave us a Taft’s gift card for Christmas…

We shared another one of their delicious New Haven-style apizzas…

And of course, loaded tots. We had to get loaded tots…

What a delicious way to celebrate such a fun holiday! 😀🍕🍺❤️

Inside our Birchbox: November.

Birchbox is so fun. Every month we each get a new box of beauty/grooming samples to try. There’s really no way we would hear about almost all of these products, let alone get to try them without Birchbox. It’s fun. So here’s what was inside both of our Birchboxes for November. Genifer gets her box a lot earlier in the month than I do…

In her box was R+Co WATERFALL Moisture+Shine Lotion, Marcelle New∙Age® Precision 8-in-1 Power Serum, CLEAN Reserve Skin Eau de ParfumLise Watier 24 Hrs Glam Mascara and Love of Color Ultra-Gloss Lip Pencil.

And here’s my BirchboxMan for November…

In my box was Daily Concepts Multi-Functional Charcoal Soap Sponge, Oars + Alps Bar Soap, Kiehl’s Men’s Oil Eliminator 24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer, Olivina Men Exfoliating Bar Soap and Wilma Schumann Skin Care Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads.

I love the bar soaps. And you can never go wrong with anything Keihl’s. It was another really good box for me. Getting Birchbox is always really fun. 😀🎁❤️

Inside our Birchbox: October.

Birchbox is so fun. Every month you get a new box of beauty/grooming samples to try. There’s really no way we would hear about most of these products, let alone get to try them without Birchbox. It’s fun. Here’s what was inside our Birchboxes for October… 

Genifer gets her box a lot earlier in the month than I do…

She got Air Repair hydrating serum, Marcelle BB Golden Glow, Malin+Goetz face moisturizer, and Juliette has a gun perfume. My Birchbox comes closer to the end of the month…

In my box, there was Him’s Sleep Gummies, Duke Cannon Thick Hair Shampoo, Ursa Major Essential Face Tonic, Hanz de Fuko Claymationand Aether Aetheroxyde Eau de Parfum.

My favorites this time were the Hanz de Fuko hair clay, Ursa Major face tonic and the Hims Sleep gummies. It was a really good box this time for me. But getting Birchbox is always really fun. 😀🎁❤️

Inside our Birchbox: September.

My Birchbox for September arrived in the mail today…

In this Birchbox, I got English Laundry Cambridge Knight Eau de ParfumJack Black Intense Therapy Lip BalmBilly Jealousy Soft Rock Texturizing ClayKiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub, and V76 by Vaughn Hydrating Shampoo. My favorite this time around is the lip balm and the Kiehl’s Facial Fuel. Genifer also got her Birchbox Beauty for September…

In her Birchbox, she got ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm, Number 4 Jour d’automne Smoothing Balm, M·A·C Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara, and Benefit Gimme Brow Eyebrow Gel. She also tried FabFitFun. Her first box came this week. Unlike Birchbox that is samples of products that come every month, FabFitFun is full-size, premium products delivered four-times per year…

Her box was filled with all sorts of stuff. She got a French Press coffee maker, an umbrella, a purse, face lotion, body wash, kitchen towels, some nutrition bars and a bunch of other fun stuff. Getting Birchbox and FabFitFun are both really fun. 😀🎁❤️
