I’ve always envied people who have personal trainers. Not because of the actual personal trainer. I mean, who wants to have someone around whose sole purpose is to make you exercise on a regular basis, not to mention knowing when you cheated or lied about it? *shudder* No, I’ve envied them because they’re usually fantastically fit, […]

14 years ago at this time I was trying desperately to get another hour of sleep. My 4 month old had had a fussy night, and my husband had woken me up at 4:30 a.m. to say a quick goodbye. He was going to NYC for a business meeting, had to catch a 6 a.m. […]

Yeah, I agree. The title to this post sounds frighteningly like a martini-induced dream I had once, but stay with me here. I swear I haven’t had anything alcoholic in like four whole days. Thank you, James. I’ve gotta tell you, this week the Favorites were tough to pull out (as you’re about to discover), but […]

Indulgences. Summer is the perfect time for them, isn’t it? (So are the holidays…and the bitter cold months of January…and February…and March…and the brisk, apple-crispy days of fall…but let’s not get carried away. Until October.) It seems that all I’ve been doing the past month or so is indulging, and not just on decadent food […]

You guys, it’s been so long since I’ve posed a Friday Favorites I feel like maybe I should take a moment to reintroduce them…but since I know that those of you who usually read them are long time friends of YMFT (hey girl, hey) I probably can skip that and get right to my apology […]

A couple of weeks ago I went off the grid. Like, really off the grid. To celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary, my husband and I escaped to Big Sur, California—one of our very favorite places. Big Sur is a place we’ve loved since even before we were married, but for some reason, haven’t visited since. […]

One week, you guys. It’s one week until summer officially starts in my house. Sure, Thing 1 has been home for a couple of weeks already, so her summer is well underway, but Thing 2 still has a week to go, and I don’t count summer as starting until I can sleep in until 9:00 […]

Dear faithful YMFT Bachelor recap fans, I have good news for you. Sort of. (Here’s the part where I get you excited for a second and then [possibly] let you down gently.) You might remember how I’ve repeatedly said I won’t recap The Bachelorette anymore since I recapped Des’ season two years ago and lost half my […]

So it seems the Friday Favorites are becoming more of a bi-monthly thing, doesn’t it? Damn blogger who’s over scheduled herself the past couple of months. (And by “over scheduled” I mean take naps when she has a free hour instead of writing something for the blog, of course.) And after you discover what today’s Favorites […]

I have a problem: an addiction, if you will. It’s not new. This has been something that I’ve been struggling with for the past 10 or 15 years, and it’s an issue that I’ve tried many times to overcome, unsuccessfully. The interesting thing is, this problem doesn’t bother me. If I’m being honest, the [failed] attempts at […]
