If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then you know I’m having a fantastic time exploring Scotland this week. You guys, seriously, Scotland is take-your-breath-away gorgeous. It’s been so fun saying, “Oh this reminds me of Vermont!” Or “This is a lot like Wyoming!” Or “I feel like I’m in Oregon!” All those gorgeous […]...

I made these cupcakes several weeks ago, way back before my Disney trip. Summer was drawing out, all my friends had moved back to the U.S. or Canada, or were traveling for the summer. I was homesick and lonely. Obviously, the answer was easy, delicious, happy cupcakes. Really happy cupcakes. Pink frosting, pinwheels, ballerinas, and […]...

Next week, the Hubster and I are leaving for a week-long trip to Scotland. I’m pretty much freaking out, because, you know, Scotland. Last year, near this time (in December), we went to Oxford and London. We did a Harry Potter super tour and visited all of the places where they filmed, or that were […]...

Welp, Halloween is the day after tomorrow. You guys have any big plans?? We don’t. I tried really hard to find a party for us to go to (only so we could wear our Carl and Ellie costumes again), but then I remembered I live in the Netherlands and Halloween just isn’t a thing here. […]...

I know, I haven’t posted in forever and a day. Again. And you probably thought I was gone. Again. But I’ve been really busy you guys, you don’t even know. You don’t. Really. Okay, whatever. If you’re gonna be like that, fine. By ‘busy’, what I really mean is ‘lazy’. Whatever. It was nice. I […]...

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 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. […]...

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. […]...

Can we talk about the 90s for a second? I’ve been rewatching some of my favorite 90s shows on Netflix recently, and it’s been pretty awesome. Let’s bring back chunky heels, please? I don’t even care how un-graceful they look, those things were bitchin’. Easy to walk in, but you’ve still got an awesome extra […]...

I made soda bread the other day. It’s such an easy, delicious recipe, I don’t know why I don’t make it more often. I mean, I called this recipe ‘easy’, but the fact is, that’s what Irish soda bread is…easy. That’s the wonderful thing about it! This time, I got creative and put the dough […]...
