Did you know that July is national ice cream month? It’s like the best idea for how to spend a month that anyone has ever thought of. Except maybe chocolate month. That’s awesome, too....

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 watched Steel Magnolias today, and somehow, that led me down a rabbit hole of random fact hunting. What? I don’t know. I’m an IMDber. It’s who I am. First of all, I kinda wish big southern hair was in again. Not a fact hunting discovery or anything, just…you know…I mean, it’s kinda awesome. Second, […]...

I really wanted to make a cute cake for Easter this year, but I wanted something new…something different and decadent. For me, decadent almost always requires chocolate. It’s how my brain works. What’s something quintessentially ‘Easter’ that would be better than ever with chocolate added? Duh. Carrot cake. Seriously, it just got so much better. […]...

Valentine’s Day is when he surprises you with your favorite soda that you never ever drink anymore, but it’s pizza night, and pizza and soda are BFFs. It’s managing his Eve Online training skills when he’s far, far away with shoddy Internet. Valentine’s Day is when he brings home teeny soda bottles from Italy, just […]...

Pub crawlers and dropped pants. That’s where this post is headed. You’re been warned. As you know, the Hubster and I are currently in England, and boy oh boy, did we get a welcome! We arrived Friday afternoon, on the ferry into Dover. From there, we drove to Oxford, where we spent the weekend. On Friday […]...

Before we left the states, everyone was sort of warning us how completely different it would be here, and wishing us luck and stuff. While, yes, it is different here, it’s not a huge adjustment, and I must say that we. Are. Loving it! That said…dear Halloween, I miss you. Halloween isn’t really a holiday […]...

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 […]...

Did you know that today is Hermione Granger’s birthday? I wasn’t going to make Hermione a treat this year, basically because I was being lazy. I already had another recipe lined up for this week, so I didn’t need to do any extra work if I didn’t want to. But I celebrates Ron’s birthday this […]...
