I came across this little girl’s story on twitter today and it broke my heart. She suffers from a disease called epidermolysis bullosa that makes her skin extremely fragile, causing it to blister and tear. It is hard for her to even move because her condition is so painful. And running and playing like other 10-year […]

newsflash: basics no longer standard

that’s right. this post really is about the most boring shirt you ever saw. the image isn’t just a clever metaphor for some deeper statement about the comfort of blandness in our ever-complicated world. this is literally just a story about the un-fucking-believable lengths i went to this morning to be a good mom, and […]

wine Wednesday: we all scream for wine ice cream!

just wow. anybody who’s ever had a gruesome, wallow-inducing break-up, something rooftop-shoutingly phenomenal to celebrate or just an everyday case of feeling utterly decadent will totally be able to relate to the sheer awesomeness of this find: Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream. in the ultimate 2-great-tastes-that-taste-great-together combo, the most clichéd and delicious heartbreak/celebration/indulgence go-to foods confirm what i’ve always known: […]

NaBloPoMo day 25: my Thanksgiving recipes

mmm-kay. so ‘member last night when i said i’d try and post my recipes? (yeah, you do.) well this had the potential to get totally ghetto. y’all almost got iPhone pictures of the ass-old-stained-scribbled-on-now-moldy-because-i-have-no-idea-why pages in my recipe binder. but i decided i was better than that. and these recipes deserve better than that. they are […]

Friday favorites + Blogtober14 catch-ups

well this was inevitable. so much blogging, so little time. i fell behind on the #Blogtober14 prompts. again. but lucky for me (and you!), i think i can wrap up yesterday’s, today’s (since they’re both kind of about favorite things) and my semi-usual Friday favorites in one neat little package here. so overachieving of me, huh? don’t get […]

Friday favorites

one work week of single-mommydom almost down! if that’s not a reason to celebrate Friday, i sure don’t know what is. somewhere between running double-duty on carpool and hostessing Barbie show marathons, i managed to come across a couple cool things that a preschooler would probably hate. enjoy and happy Friday, y’all! being a card […]

wine Wednesday: the box is back!

  so excited that another case arrived from Naked Wines arrived last week! not excited about the hideous black and blue marks on my arms from hauling the hulking box from office to car on Friday, determined that come hell or high water, i would have it for the weekend. i look like an NFL girlfriend.

wine Wednesday: truth

while doing a little research for another post, i came across a charming little article/infographic on Lifehack (via The Savory) detailing how long your open bottle of wine will last if you put a cork in it, based on what type it is. um . . . how cute. i don’t know what they were thinking, but […]

Friday favorites

where on earth do these weeks go? somehow, the first half crawled by for what seemed like centuries. then, all of a sudden it was Thursday. whee! we’ve got a big weekend full of birthday parties and Pre-K prepping (omg!). Miss Girl’s last day at her current school has got me all weepy and nostalgic, so […]
