I don’t know about you, but once the Fourth of July is over, summer feels rushed to me. On paper, it’s ridiculous and erroneous, I realize, as we aren’t technically even halfway through it yet, but in my mind — especially this year — I start to panic. Panic over our dog days ending. Or […]

The tragic events that happened in Orlando over the past week — all three of them horrific and unimaginable in their own ways — have left me breathless. Since I’m not the type of person who consumes information to cope (preferring instead to live in an ignorant fog of denial) I’ve been scrolling my newsfeed with […]

It’s that time of year again, folks. Time for gluttony and indulgence and feeling like shit about yourself when you wake up in the morning and realize how you spent your evening. That’s right, it’s The Bachelorette season. But while it’s easy to feel guilt over the two hours of your life you sacrifice each week, […]

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” […]

May is my favorite month. Sure, I like to tell July that it’s the best and that I wish its days would last forever, but that’s usually just to butter it up so it gives me at least 25 perfect days of hot-but-not-too-hot weather, weekends at the lake with low humidity and no wind, mosquitoes […]

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. Getting to fly off to California twice in as many weeks is enough to make a Minnesota […]

Last week was my birthday. For those (16) of you who’ve been hanging around here since the beginning, you’ve helped me through the last four of them. Sure, maybe we haven’t been together in person, but since I started this blog it’s been a form of therapy for me, and when you pass a *cough* […]

You guys, I’m emotionally exhausted. This past week brought unseasonably warm temps to Minneapolis, which resulted in just about everyone losing their effing minds. Seriously, that was pretty much the reaction of all of us here when we heard it was going to hit 70° in March. And it did, and then it stayed warm. For […]

For the third time in as many years, there’s a new housing development being built right outside my neighborhood. I live in the sticks, so there’s plenty of land. I hate to see the decimation of the lovely farmlands. I cringe as I watch the hundreds of trees turn to mulch as they feed them […]

Tomorrow I get have to play dress-up. I use the word “play” because I never dress up. In fact, the last time I wore a dress that you couldn’t wear flip-flops with and wasn’t purchased in the juniors section of Target was at this very same function a year ago. My life isn’t glamorous, ya’ll. I realize […]
