If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, you may have noticed that I was a little quieter over the last few days than usual. It’s because of sheer exhaustion. You guys just don’t even know. My house wants me to be crazy. Last night, I got my first good night’s sleep in about four […]...

It’s embarrassing confession time. First of all, I think today is National Hot Cocoa Day. It might have been yesterday. Whatever. As far as I’m concerned, it’s every day, so I’m celebrating. More embarrassing, though, I’m about to reveal to you all how low my level of self control actually is. Prepare yourselves. It’s shockingly […]...

As you know, this week I’m embarking on all sorts of childlike behavior at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Walt Disney World. All of my excitement has made me nostalgic for the things that made me happy when I was a little girl, and with Fall in full swing, I’ve been thinking a […]...

Today is Harry Potter’s birthday. Fact: Harry and I are the same age. If my Hogwarts letter had never been lost, it might well have been Harry, Ron, and Darla. What? YOU DON’T KNOW! It could’ve happened. Whatever. In my little fantasy world, I’m in the Trio. I mean, I totally dig Hermione, so she […]...

Soooooooo. It’s still summertime. You know…sunshine (even here in the Pacific Northwest!), warm weather, shorts and tanks, kids home from school. Kids home from school.

The Hubster has been kinda grouchy the last couple of days. Don’t tell him I told you this, but it’s my fault. Actually, it’s my friend Kristan’s fault, because she told me about this blog that I’ve been reading late into the night while the Hubster sleeps lately. It’s called Brittany. Herself. and it’s make-you-laugh-so-hard-you-cry (or […]...

Have I told you that I’m heading up to the airport today to pick up a friend who is my very first visitor since moving to Oregon? And that we’ve never met IRL (in real life) before? And that we’re totally going to Forks, WA to investigate the claims that vampires and werewolves exist? No? […]...
