It is now officially acceptable for me to get excited about Halloween and BOY OH BOY am I excited for Halloween.  Of course, we won’t be throwing a Halloween party this year.

That One Time I Had a Concave Nipple and Why I Hate Being Knocked Out

Warning: Contains a story about serious pain (and boobs). If you get squeamish when reading about pain (or boobs), this is not recommended.

How Should You Share the Closet Space?

A Closet Full of Clothes…But Where Are Brian’s Clothes?

As my closet fills with fall clothes, I started thinking about my wardrobe vs. Brian’s wardrobe. When we moved into Brian’s dad’s house, putting most of our stuff into a gigantic storage unit, I had to pack up Rubbermaid tub on top of Rubbermaid tub full of clothes that I wouldn’t see again for another […]

Nerds!

Good afternoon Blog Friends! I have returned from Indianapolis with about 10% of the games and things that I wanted to purchase (while still finding a few gems and winning a few sweet freebies.)

#PetalumaMade Wine Paired Dinner

Wine-Paired Dinner at Seared Petaluma

I’ve been dreaming of wine and cheese lately. I’m not sure why, since I happen to have a pretty decent stockpile of both wine and cheese in my fridge. But it happens.   Remember back in July when I was all over social media with some of my new blogging buddies telling you how fantastic Petaluma, […]

Keurig 2.0 Review

Say Hello to my New Best Friend

Full disclosure: no one is paying me to say nice things. I received the product free from Keurig to review. One of the most exciting things happened when I was at BlogHer last month. I was given the opportunity to join some wonderful reps from Keurig and several bloggers for a special preview of the […]

A blog post about lying...and the ridiculous rampage that ensues

Why You Should Never Lie: A Cautionary Tale

A few months ago, I was returning a pair of shoes that I had bought on a whim. I knew that the return policy was really short and that I was outside the policy window, but I really wanted to return the shoes. So I lied. At this point, I should probably give you a […]

My Brother’s Menagerie: In Which my Little Brother Flexes his Creative Muscles (and Something About Pets that aren’t Dogs or Cats)

My brother is a crafty, creative genius. Long before Etsy was a thing, my brother was hand-making jewelry, whipping up delicious creations in the kitchen and helping me build the most elaborate indoor forts known to man. Most recently, he’s been found hand-making hamster cages. We grew up with hamsters. We started with a gerbil […]
