Print

It's a good thing I don't get asked to review too many shiny objects. Because I would do it every. single. time. Pretty, shiny, luxurious, and high tech. Those are probably my favorite review categories. Oh, and delicious. I love a good food review … [Continue reading]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 12

Show and Tell

I'm almost to episode 13 which would give me a full season of Show & Tell Tuesday. Don't 13 episodes make a season? Then I can start selling it as a boxed set with never before seen footage! And exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews! Or I can … [Continue reading]

Enjoying Another Dam Weekend

Small Town Fun

That's not a typo, nor am I attempting to swear. I'm on a constant quest for two things: have fun with Evan this summer and experience new things. And I got to accomplish all of that within 15 minutes of my house. I love in a smallish town. … [Continue reading]

You know what I love more than movies? Free movies. Sneak preview movies. Movies that I can see before anyone else. And I especially love it when it's appropriate for the whole family (since there are only three of us). So on Tuesday, July 29th, … [Continue reading]

If you're a Trekkie, you'll probably get the reference to the post title. It comes from the infamous episode, "The Trouble with Tribbles." Tribbles were cute, furry little ball-like creatures that quickly took over the Enterprise wreaking … [Continue reading]

When Almond Met Coconut…

Almond Coconut Ice Cream

It was just a few short days ago that I was celebrating National Ice Cream Day. I was testing out a new ice cream ball for homemade ice cream and I thought that if I was going to do it, I was going to do it right. Well, you know that … [Continue reading]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 11

It's getting real now. I'm up to 11 episodes of Show & Tell Tuesday. At this rate, I'm going to have 12 episodes soon! I'll be honest, though. I kind of ran out of time to do a video at home like a real show & tell so instead, I took it on … [Continue reading]
