My 2023 Reader Survey + Favorite New Set!

At the beginning of each year, I do a reader survey to further position my goals for my platform for the coming year. As my followers here at The Pink Chickadee, I LOVE to hear from each of you to know how to better serve y’all for the upcoming year. If you follow me on…

Washington, DC Spots: Hometown Grill and Bar

Love me some Hometown Grill and Bar!! Although not located right in the heart of Washington, DC or nearby Arlington or Alexandria, Hometown Grill and Bar is definitely worth checking out as it is a Lorton, Virginia favorite. As a Washington, DC area native who lives right by Lorton, I have seen the community and…

I Went to See Hairspray at Capital One Hall!

Flashback to October 2022 and one of my best friends Haley and I are on the train to Philadelphia. We had experienced a lot of issues with Amtrak leading up to eventually getting on our train and on track to the City of Brotherly Love. So, like many people who were once stressed and exhausted,…

My Experience at Washington, DC Restaurant Week – January 2023

The last time I went to Washington, DC Restaurant Week aka DC Restaurant Week was back in January 2022 and it was very unintentional as it just so happened to coincide when I was meeting some of my best friends Brianna and Brittany for brunch (we went to Farmers Fishers Bakers in Georgetown!). Unfortunately, I…

The Life of Katie!

The remainder of January has been a fun one! On my Instagram (follow me @_thepinkchickadee!!), I’ve been sharing ALL of my January adventures. And, well, let me say this: 2023 is truly starting off with a BANG! Here’s to continuing to enjoying February 2023 and beyond!! XOXO – Katie <3

I Saw Wicked at The Kennedy Center!

I have always LOVED the meaningful storyline behind Wicked! Not only is it portrayed in the iconic musical that I got to see live just recently, but it is also portrayed in-depth in the books. My good friend Brittany reads the Wicked book and has learned SO much more than what is shown on the…

A Visit to The Carolina Inn

It’s CRAZY to think that I went to college just a mere 30 minutes away from The Carolina Inn, yet I had never been! During my college years, I only went to Chapel Hill, North Carolina a handful of times (mostly my Freshmen year of college) as I was primarily in my college town of…

3 Years a Blogger!

Flash forward to Summer 2019 and I was dreaming of starting my own blog. I had followed some pretty incredible bloggers (some of which I am friends with today!) that helped inspire me to start my own journey as a blogger. Three years later, I am proudly sitting here today having been a blogger here…

6 Hours in New Hope, Pennsylvania

I have ALWAYS been a big fan of visiting tiny, charming, and historic towns. In September 2019, I visited Charleston, South Carolina and fell *in love* with the entire city that echoes Southern historic charm at every turn. Similarly speaking, I went to the charming AND historic Lewes, Delaware – also known as the first…

How I’m Learning to Love Being Single

In the movie Legally Blonde, main character and my idol Elle Woods says “exercise gives you endorphins and endorphins make you happy.” When thinking about my journey to becoming content with being single, I think this iconic Legally Blonde quote says it all, as it’s not an overnight thing to fall in love with your…

How I Save on Coffee Table Books!

A quick search on Amazon will show that most coffee table books cost around $20 upwards of $100 or even more. While pretty and excellent for decoration, coffee table books come at a hefty price tag. On my Instagram (follow me @_thepinkchickadee!), I recently shared photos of my coffee table, which includes several gorgeous books.…

The Life of Katie!

New year, same ‘The Life of Katie” blog posts coming your way – LOL! Well, it’s my first blog post of 2023! My new year kicked off with a bang, as my Papa and I went to visit my Dad, Step Mom, brother Will, and their Yorkie Ginger at their home in Bethany Beach, Delaware.…

Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale January 2023!

Hey y’all & happy almost-Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale time!!! The Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale is like my own personal version of the Super Bowl (because, yes – I avoid watching the Super Bowl LOL!). It is filled with happy carts, happy clothing, and lots of great bargains that are rarely to be seen in the…

My Highlights of 2022!

Winter (January-February): My 2022 started off with a BANG and a HUGE snow storm. I remember waking up bright and early on the first Monday of 2023 to the Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale online and a bunch of snow. Needless to say, I was psyched! Then, just a week later, we celebrated my dog Rosie’s…
