The Month of June

The month of June was lovely, wasn’t it? I ate and traveled and planted and celebrated and jammed. The heat in Austin was totally tolerable. I rekindled my love (slash hate) affair with barre and I’m getting ready for a busy July. How was your month? Do you have big things in the works for July? popsicles in Patrón // doggie…

The Month of May

Did someone hit the fast forward button? I feel like we’re moving at at least 8x normal speed. I mean, how is it even possible that it’s already June? I barely had time to appreciate all the good things that happened in May! I got to visit home and vacation in the Bahamas. I finally decided to sell my wedding…

Perks of Being an Adult

I turn 34 years old this week. The number really never bothers me because I love birthdays so much (I mean, we all have our very!own!holiday!) that I embrace all the rad perks of being an adult. Like eating mint chocolate chip ice cream for dinner. Three nights in a row. It seems the older I get, the more pleasure…

Valentine’s Day Cards

I love Valentine’s day. I love the pink and the red and the chocolate and the flowers and the mailing of mushy love notes — though I do prefer mushy love notes of the dirty/snarky/cutesy /mildly inappropriate variety. Such as these Valentine’s Day cards… 1. Back Alley Hooker $5 2. I Don’t Like Anyone… 6 for $16 3. For My…

Health, Wealth, and Happiness — Resolutions 2014

Happy New Year! Did you celebrate in style last night or barely make it till midnight? I think I sneaked a peek at the ball dropping, but I could have been dreaming. Now that it’s 2014, the big question is “what’s your new year’s resolution?” Did you take some time to reflect on the year past and plan for the…

The Best Stocking Stuffers of 2013

And by “The Best Stocking Stuffers of 2013” I mean “I would like to see all these things in my stocking. Please and thank you.” As much as I love the big ticket items (I’m holding out hope that Santa drops off a Louie one day), stocking stuffers are my favorite part of Christmas. I love trinkets and trash and…

Dog bone paper clips. Do you see what I see?

After last week’s pity cocktail hour (thank you for all the lovely comments, by the way), a good friend (who wishes to remain anonymous, much to my chagrin — I like to give credit where credit is due) sent me a care package to brighten my day, and brighten my day it did. Little did they know that these tiny…

Is Cursive Dead?

I’m a big believer in the benefits of learning cursive, so hearing that cursive is not part of the Common Core State Standards makes me very upset. I went to Catholic school and we began learning the Palmer Method pretty much as soon as we learned our ABCs. I have the callus on my middle finger to prove it. Blue…

A little something…

Is it just me, or is everyone down in the dumps lately? I sense a general ho-hum attitude, and I’m as guilty of it as anyone. Let’s see if we can change that. To send a little happiness out into the world, I put together two boxes of goodies to giveaway. What’s in these boxes of goodies? Treats. Surprises. And…
