Great news! It’s Halloween Friday! Seriously, shouldn’t Halloween always be on a Friday? I’m actually kind of envious of the parents with elementary aged kids today. For the past five years I’ve had to enforce post trick-or-treating bedtime and put restrictions on how much candy could be consumed before it because Halloween has fallen on […]

  Do you dress up for Halloween? I love dressing up. Always have. If I could throw a costume party every year I would. But I’d have to have a lot of friends who would come dressed up to pull that off. Actually, scratch the ‘who would come dressed up’ part of that last sentence […]

In honor of America’s birthday today, I’ve decided to share a new favorite recipe for nachos. Because nothing says, “Happy Birthday, America!” like food from south of the border. But seriously. I discovered this recipe from the latest People magazine which featured the Today Show hosts’s favorite Fourth of July recipes. And apparently, Willie Geist […]

Let’s just get this out of the way: Despite what this photo looks like, you are not drunk. Neither was the photographer. Neither was I. It’s just a fancy filter I used to hide the fact that I had on minimal makeup. Trust me, you’re welcome. Moving on. Yesterday I wrote a (very long-winded) post […]

When was the last time you were surprised? I mean, really good and surprised? Not in a “oh-crap-I-wasn’t-supposed-to-get-my-period-until-next-week” kind of way, but in a “you’re-taking-me-on-a-long-weekend-away-tomorrow?” kind of way. (And by the way, that’s never actually happened to me, but isn’t that the very best kind of surprise you can imagine?) I love surprises. I always have. […]

“With Enough Wine, the Holidays Will be Fine.” It’s one of my favorite sayings this time of year, but since I don’t really think wine should have all the fun and because martinis make me feel fancy, I’m once again sharing some of my favorite recipes with you to help get you through the upcoming […]

You guys. Are you sitting down? Yes? Good. Because I’m going to say something that may knock you off your feet otherwise. I don’t have a lot to say today and I’m not even going to mention the fact that this is the weather I’m experiencing right now. Please note: Feels like -19°. ‘Bitterly’ doesn’t […]
