Who's excited for Thanksgiving?
Is it about the food or the company?
Do yourself a favor and watch this before you leave to spend a few days with your family:
Oh Adele... you slay me. … [Read More...]
Everyone seems excited about dinner this week.
You can have my turkey.
I've never been a holiday meal person. Giant turkeys, honey baked hams, casseroles, mashed potatoes, that green bean thing with onion straws on top... you can keep it. Don't touch my dessert though.
No, my favorite … [Read More...]
I am indecisive.
I'm also impatient - a dangerous combo.
In this instance, I couldn't decide between a sweet or savory pumpkin-based creation for dinner. Savory pumpkin always seems a bit more strange to me, so I went for it with today's curried pumpkin.
The fact that I stuffed a mushroom … [Read More...]
Pretty food just tastes better.

When Pretty Fit reached out and asked if I'd be interested in their Pretty Fit Protein Powder I was sold just from the name. Shallow, I know. I've been known to buy wine based on name too. After … [Read More...]

We're terrible about getting out the door in the morning, … [Read More...]

What happens in Vegas typically stays with me. I marry it, Instagram it, or post about it.
And that leads me to my very first submission to Meghan's Week In Review.
Vegas and I spent a long weekend in … [Read More...]
This is the fastest #strangebutgood post I've ever done.
Goal: Under 10 mins.
The clock has started. I'm sitting in a parking lot in Las Vegas waiting on Vegas. If you don't think today's recipe is strange, the writing circumstances certainly are!
We've been having to leave the house … [Read More...]
Vegas has taught me to kill spiders.
It's not what you think.
Vegas and I are total opposites in some ways. She loves living things, I can't stand them. She brought 2 dogs and 2 birds to this marriage. I brought a house plant.
She captures bugs in the house and releases them safely … [Read More...]
