Please Stop Telling Me I Should Do Things For A Living

The title, alone, sounds ridiculous. Please stop telling me I should do things for a living? What do I expect - to sit around and do nothing as a grown ass adult? No. That's not what I mean at all. A couple weeks ago, we had a little family and friend get together for my… Continue reading Please Stop Telling Me I Should Do Things For A Living

I’m Having An Art Exhibit, and You Should Come

Four years ago, I wrote a blog post about starting to paint again. It was really crazy, actually. I hadn't painted or drawn or done anything artsy or craftsy in years. I mean I wasn't even a Pinterest mom at that point. Blasphemy, I know. I literally wanted nothing to do with art, and the… Continue reading I’m Having An Art Exhibit, and You Should Come

It’s Time We Get This Out In the Open, and Just Have the Talk About Baby Showers

I've kept my mouth shut about this for SO. LONG. But I just can't keep it shut anymore. I consider it to be hazardous to my health to hold this in any further. If, through the course of this, I in some way hurt your feelings, I wish I could apologize. But I can't. Instead… Continue reading It’s Time We Get This Out In the Open, and Just Have the Talk About Baby Showers

For those even further under… Continue reading The Pen Is Not Mightier Than the Sword If It Is Silenced Forever. (On Charlie Hebdo.)

I have some random things to complain about…

... so think I'll do it here. Hope you guys don't mind. It all started with - I think - the Superbowl. For one, I drank too much that day. That isn't saying much for me, because I don't drink a lot and I also am a super-duper lightweight. Nonetheless, I drank too much because… Continue reading I have some random things to complain about…

Chicagoland Bloggie Friend Frolic

I'm super duper sorry that I've been so minimal on the blog these last few weeks, you guys. It's just that life got crazy a few days before we left for vacation, and it's only now calming down as we go into the second week of our month-long stay in the Chicagoland area. So before… Continue reading Chicagoland Bloggie Friend Frolic

STFU Fridays: Party Season Is Over Just In Time For Bridal/Baby Season

So in the last six months we have celebrated: two birthdays (that I baked my eight hour cake for); an anniversary (that I baked another eight hour cake for); Halloween (homemade costumes); Thanksgiving (handcrafted party to avoid having to do much on Thanksgiving, only to be expected to do much on Thanksgiving anyway); one birthday… Continue reading STFU Fridays: Party Season Is Over Just In Time For Bridal/Baby Season
