Happy Holidays from Wander & Whine

2 years ago

We'll be taking the next week or so off from the blogging world, but not before wishing you a very happy holiday! Enjoy whatever time off you can finagle, with those people you love most. One of us is heading to the Happiest Place on Earth, and the other plans to spend the next several days wrapped up like a human burrito. Whatever you wish[...]

Thanksgiving Recap

2 years ago

{by alexis} Such a busy time of year! I know at this point it's full speed ahead to Christmas, and we're thinking about shopping (we can help here and here!), plans with family, and the bravest of us are looking ahead to New Year's, but I wanted to take a step back and share a beautiful Thanksgiving recap with you all. This was the first[...]

9 Things I Learned While House Hunting

2 years ago

{by alexis} You'll have to excuse me if I yawn a few times during this blog post -- Joe and I spent every waking moment of the last weekend moving, and we're still not quite caught up on our rest. Thanks to our ginormous and incredibly supportive families, we are all moved in to the new place in Upper Arlington! I was planning to write[...]

A Love Letter to German Village

2 years ago

{by alexis} I'm sure by now you've gathered that I'm moving out of German Village, my most favorite Columbus neighborhood. We closed on our house in Upper Arlington last week, and packing has begun in earnest. I thought that before I left, I'd give one last shout-out to the Village, and list the things I'll miss the most. Credit to the following sites for their[...]

A New and Empty House

2 years ago

{by alexis} I have news, faithful readers! Remember how Joe and I have been looking for a house for a trillion years? I am so pleased to announce that our offer has been accepted on the most adorable of all the cape cods, and we are in contract! I celebrated for a minute (late-night dancing, yelling about the number of burners I am about to[...]

Weekend in New York City, Episode 1

2 years ago

{by alexis} Last weekend, Joe and I finally took a trip to visit some of our closest friends in New York City. We'd been trying to narrow down a weekend forever, and we made it! There were several frenzied emails on making plans, but, true to form, we spent every day, from dawn till dusk, eating, drinking, and making merry. We even got to stay[...]

Anniversary Celebrations All Around

2 years ago

{by alicia} After a series of missteps, misinformation, and maddening instructions, we've finally migrated the site, and all is well in the world again. During the downtime, we had a couple of anniversaries pass: our one-year blogoversary and my wedding anniversary! We haven't had a chance to celebrate the blog yet (watch this space!), but I did have a few festive outings with my bae (disclaimer: I do not[...]

When Bloggers Bounce

2 years ago

{by: alicia} We don't pretend to be fitness queens. In fact, we openly abhor exercise, but as Alexis mentioned in a previous post, it's a necessary evil. I tend to shy away from anything high impact. I prefer light movement in the way of yoga or doing a handful of crunches in front of the TV--sorry, not sorry. Exercise in general just bores me, so I've[...]

Jury Duty

2 years ago

{by alexis} I know a lot of people grumble when they receive their jury summons in the mail. My mother has been on a few juries, and my brother is always going on and on about what a sweet gig it is. So, when I received the missive, I was excited! It's sort of like getting your admission to Hogwarts! Okay, maybe not, but I[...]

Looking Back on 2014

2 years ago

It's been quite a year for us! Since meeting you, we've learned a lot, grown a lot, and made more than a few changes between the two of us. We're grateful for all of you, readers, as well as the wonderful people we've met in this world of Columbus bloggers. Tonight, we're going to eat too much, wear a few too many sparkles, and toast with too[...]

Presents to Self

{by alicia + alexis} It's the time of year for the gift guide, no? We've posted one, and some of our favorite bloggers have posted their own versions, too. But what you don't often see is what the bloggers are buying themselves. In this post, we'll both list the treasures we picked up for ourselves while shopping for the other folks in our lives. {Alexis'[...]

I ♥ Fall Tag

3 years ago

{by: alicia} Morgan at Columbus Living recently tagged me to share my fall favorites, and I was more than happy to oblige. Despite my constant griping about the weather, I truly do enjoy the changing of seasons. 1. Favorite fall lip product? To combat dry lips while adding much-needed color, I reach for Tony Moly's Bunny Gloss or Maybelline's Baby Lips Dr. Rescue. 2. Favorite fall nail polish?[...]

(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday

{by: alicia} Though my travesty of a phone decided to crash and wipe away all of my recent photos, I still managed to cobble together a post. VICTORY. Here's a peek at what has been going on lately (if you've guessed lots of food/eating, you win): {A wondrous lunch date at Katalina's} [caption id="attachment_3199" align="aligncenter" width="646"] Pancake balls and tacos with a mini elote.[/caption] Let's zoom up[...]

A Wander & Whine Wedding

{by alexis}--I can't believe it's been two years. It's been two years since Joe and I took the plunge and said I Do. To celebrate here on the blog, I thought I'd share a little bit of our day, and shine a light on some of the most amazing wedding-related vendors in our big little town of Columbus. I'm so psyched to see all the[...]

TBT: A Compilation

3 years ago

{by: alicia} I feel like it's been ages since I've last blogged. I don't have a lot to report, so prepare thyself for a bit of a photo dump/catchup. I've been busy with working, life, the usual. Other than focusing on work, I've been trying to enjoy these last remnants of warm weather. The high on Saturday is 52 degrees--she says as she sobs in earnest. Fall, you're[...]

End of Summer Recap

Counting Crows at LC Pavilion

3 years ago

{alexis} Last week, Wander & Whine took a field trip to the Lifestyles Communities Pavilion to see the Counting Crows and Toad the Wet Sprocket. This is one of Alicia's favorite venues, but it was my first visit. I've told my husband before that I am too old for concerts now: the jostle, the over-priced beers, and the late-nights make me want to crawl underneath my[...]

Instalife

3 years ago

{alicia} The past couple weeks have provided me with enough material to write ten lengthy posts, but for the sake of time and my sanity, we're going to whittle it down to one. Most of this is stolen from my Instagram, so bear with me if it's repetitive. I'll try to add some jazzy descriptions here and there, but sometimes, it's best to let the pictures do the talking. Until a couple[...]
