The Hubster is currently teaching me to play chess. I mean, I basically know how to play…you know, all the pieces and the moves they can make, but that’s about it. Here’s the thing, though…I’m hating it. Not because I don’t like playing. And not because I think it’s boring or anything like that. It’s […]...

I want a baby goat. I know you wanted to know that. Because baby goat. Seriously, have you ever seen a baby goat? Ridiculous. I’m not sure there’s anything in the whole wide world that’s cuter than a baby goat. They are like cuteness overlords. You bow down to the squee-worthiness that is baby goats. […]...

As you may know, if you follow me on Facebook, the third season of Dance Academy has finally made it to Netflix. Yayyyyy!!! I have talked about my obsession with ballet, and love for Dance Academy before, so you can imagine my excitement that I finally get to watch the new season. A little back […]...

I have a confession to make. I made these cookies while the Hubster was away. That means no sharing, and no leftovers going into his fellow Coasties with him. That means just me and these cookies. Alone. For a whole week. They had some strange power over me. I was constantly thinking of them at […]...

I decided that we needed one more batch of baked treats before Christmas arrives, so I whipped up some shortbread. A. Because it’s super stupid easy. And 2. Because the Hubster thinks shortbread is the greatest thing in all the land. Easy decision. It helps that these are also ridiculously delicious. When I first planned […]...

I currently live in a foreign country. Well, foreign to my U.S. readers…and anyone outside of the Netherlands…you know what I mean. Anyway, I live here in the Netherlands, but I don’t speak Dutch. Maybe I speak a little. Very, very little. Okay, okay, hardly any at all, but it’s not like I’m not trying. It’s […]...

I’m pretty sure my elevator is out to get me. I have a theory that it senses my dislike of elevators in general and enjoys toying with me. Elevators are scary, y’all. There’s the ever-present risk of plummeting to the bottom of the shaft screaming your lungs out, the terrifying prospect of stepping in, only […]...

When I was a little girl, I had three idols: She-Ra, Jem, and Rainbow Brite. In three consecutive years, from first grade through third, I agonized and obsessed over the opportunity to be any of the three for Halloween. Fact: I was She-Ra once. In the first grade, I got my wish, and I was […]...

I spent the other morning trying to explain to a very nice Dutch man (seriously…one of the nicest people I’ve met here, so far) the difference between a dialect and an accent. I’m pretty sure I failed. He was very confused that Americans from different parts of the U.S. sound different from one another (a […]...

We have been in the Netherlands for eight weeks, as of tomorrow. In that time, my Facebook page has slowly, but surely, been switching over to showing me Dutch ads. I hate stupid ads on Facebook, but it’s even worse when you don’t even have a clear idea of what the ads say. There’s this […]...
