  For as long as I can remember, I’ve been an all-in kind of a girl.(That’s what he said.) What I mean is that I’m easily — too easily — consumed by things. All kinds of things. Things like television shows and brands of chips and buying sporty clothes that make me look like I workout. […]

It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday… Damn song. This morning Thing 2 gave me that fun little ear worm and for the past hour and a half it’s been EATING AWAY AT MY BRAIN. Partyin’, partyin’, yeah! Partyin’, partyin’, yeah! It’s okay. I’ll get her back later by singing “It’s a Small World” […]

Welcome back, friends! I’ve been off the grid for the past few weeks living the life of a jet-setting celebrity…the kind that flies coach on lesser known airlines and brings her own wine to hotels to save money, but still.

Something that the overwhelming majority of society—and even members of my own family—finds baffling and threatens to ostracize me for.

Ahhh, awards season. It comes rushing in on a cool breeze of Pumpkin Spice, changing leaves, and front porch mums. Well, in Minnesota, anyway. In Los Angeles it comes in on a 100° heat wave of deflated hair, glistening décolletage, and impressive back sweat. If you’ve been hanging around here long enough, you know how […]

Fall. I absolutely love it. Is it the crisp evenings, colorful leaves, and Pumpkin Spiced Lattes?

Absolutely, but even more than all those wonderful things, it’s […]

Anger! Lying! Regret! Tears! Backstabbing! Insults! Heartache! Heartbreak! Closeted homosexuals!—The latest installment of The Bachelorette had it all, and that was just in the first five minutes. Let’s cut to the chase and get right to it. I’ve got to go work on my number for our family’s production of Aladdin which we’ve suddenly decided […]
