Happy Mothers Day 

Hey Loves! F & J here! 

We just wanted to say a Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful mamas out there. You guys have one of the most important jobs of all times. We know we would be nothing without our moms. 

We were blessed with some amazing moms who taught us to love and raised us to be the women we are. We both hope our moms know how much we love them and how blessed we are to have them. 

Remember to give your mom all the love she deserves today. And everyday! 

Love,

F & J 

Who Are We?

IMG_2220IMG_2219Hey Loves! F & J Here!

Not to long ago we got back our results from 23 and Me. We had thought about trying one of the at home DNA tests for a while since we thought it would be interesting to see what our results would be.

They went on sale on at 23 and Me so we decided to purchase them. We were mailed a kit with instructions to follow for collecting our saliva and how to properly seal it up and send it back. And then it was just a giant waiting game!

F’s results came in faster than J’s (something to do with having to retest). Let us tell you, it is so oddly fascinating to look at your results! It’s very interesting to look at the data you’re given and see what your DNA says about who you are! Especially since both of our families don’t have much knowledge on their ancestors. Check out our results above!

Another fun thing about 23 and Me is that it tells you how much Neanderthal DNA you have compared to others. F is on the low side of having neanderthal in her DNA, and J has more than 98% of people who have previously tested on 23 and Me! (It is only a very very little percentage of your overall DNA).

If you were considering trying 23 and Me to find out what your DNA says about you we highly recommend it!

Love,

F & J

Hawaii Trip

Hey Loves! F & J Here!

We are so excited to share with you that we will be going to Kauai in June! We have officially booked our flights and have a nice place to stay. We cannot tell you enough how excited we are. We love the beach and any opportunity to get tan!

Kauai is the smallest Hawaiian island and is, from what we hear, a beautiful place to relax. We are looking forward to getting to enjoy all of the beautiful views. 

If anybody has any suggestions of what we should do while we are there we would love to hear them!

Love,

F & J

Granville Getaway

Hey Loves! F & J here!

A few weeks ago we decided to go on a mini road trip for F’s birthday! We chose to go up Vancouver BC because we wanted a change of scenery. We got an awesome deal on our hotel and decided to stay on Granville Island. It’s a little more calm than being in the heart of the city. Even though we had our car there was plenty things to do within walking distance.

We started each day walking around the Granville Market and having a nice breakfast and coffee. There were so many vendors in the market and there was so much to see. It reminded of the farmer markets that come to Seattle in the summer. We met some nice people and bought some fun things including blue almond milk (it’s completely natural too)!

We also went to Kitsilano Beach and spent some time enjoying the view until we got rained out. We enjoyed the nightlife the city had to offer as well. We would say it was a pretty successful trip!

Where should we visit next? Let us know in the comments below!

Love,

Tanya Burr Inspired Naked Cake

IMG_1879IMG_1880Hey Loves! F & J here!

Some of you guys might know how much we love to bake! We have totally been crushing on the beauty of a perfect naked cake. We decided to make one of our own. We used Tanya Burrs’ recipe  for a white chocolate raspberry cake, that we decided to twist a bit to work with the ingredients we had. We struggled a little to convert the recipe to work with our American tools since the UK uses a different measuring system.

The cake ended up delicious but it was bit crumbly, we truly believe it was because we messed up conversions. The frosting was delicious but really sweet so we decided to only use half a batch for the cake. We did our best to make the cake look as pretty as possible even though it was falling apart.

All that aside it was most definitely delicious and everyone who had a slice wanted more! We definitely thought it was going to be a fail but it ended up being pretty successful and something that we would make again. Thank you Tanya Burr!

Love,

F & J

French Bakery

FullSizeRender (35)FullSizeRender (34)FullSizeRender (33)Hey Loves! F &  J here!

We hope everything’s going well in all your lovely lives. We found the cutest little French bakery this weekend and we thought it deserved to be shared. We wanted to stop for a quick bite to eat and to take a mini break from shopping, and that is when we found this adorable little cafe. They have tons of food options and pastries, as well as coffee! Who could  be disappointed with that! We will definitely find ourselves back there one day.

Love,

F & J
