Vince’s Store Bought Birfday

The group, holding the cupcakes (and the only photo taken of them before they were devoured!)

I can't believe I'm writing about this well over a month after the fact, but what can I say? Life. It's good right now. :) This year was Vince's 35th birthday - 35th!!! I met Vince when he was 25 and every year on January 13th I've struggled to rally our Still-hung-over-from-New-Years-partied-out friends to give Vince the birthday celebration he truly deserves. And every year we manage to pull something off - even if it's just a really effing expensive dinner with our local pals. This Continue Reading

Post 220: In which our heroine becomes addicted to hooping

Alicia night hooping with her LED!

If we're friends on Facebook or Instagram or Pinterest, you've probably picked up on some new activity on my accounts lately. Specifically, a new addiction that has developed rather rapidly...

Alicia started hooping about six months ago, maybe longer, and she fell in love pretty much as soon as she started. I saw all her posts on Facebook and Instagram full of these amazing night Continue Reading

That time we went to a bar and picked up a six piece funk band

Booty Band at The Social

Friday night Vince and I went to The Social to see a band from Asheville called Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band! Now, I had heard of Booty Band many times over the years and knew a few of their tracks  pretty well, though I wasn't a super-dedicated follower. But Vince and I have been kind of in a work-rut lately - just working, eating, sleeping, wash, rinse, repeat - so I bought tickets online so that we would be committed to going and immediately bought their latest album to prepare. The Continue Reading

Oops…. Excuses and an Update

We fancy!

Well, I had ever intention of blogging every day the month of November and... yeah that didn't happen. In fact, it looks like I'm not going to make much out of December either. So what the hell happened? A new job. A renewed focus on my home-life. A new Kindle Paperwhite.... The last item was a gift from my former SVP and I am absolutely inlove with being able to read on my Kindle in an otherwise pitch-black room. But seriously, here's one of those random updates that doesn't make a Continue Reading

Awesome Organic Hippie Granola Recipe!


I tried to take photos of this recipe as we were making it, but it went so fast and we started eating it so quickly that the only photo I got was at the end! This is a recipe for an absolutely *amazeballs* granola bar that's all organic and natural, and SUPER good for you. I seriously feel like my brain works better after I eat this stuff.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Me

There's no photo of me in the U-Haul, but this was why I did it. To help him move, and to visit her. Totes worth it.

(I accidentally published this instead of scheduled it, so if you saw it yesterday between the hours of noon and 1pm, my bad!!!) Okay so I was in Chicago, working, meeting people, and I have nothing to post about. So I stole this topic from Paula, and it sounds like she stole it from people who overshare on Facebook, so enjoy! 10 5 Things You Might Not Know About Meeeeee: 1.
