Why? I think I'd still want to be with someone who … Continue reading Question of the Week #303
Alternatively, this post could have been titled “Of All the Decisions I’ve Ever Made in My Life More Than Once, I Question This the Most” or “Why I Clearly Still Hate Myself and Everything I Stand For.” Some of you may remember that, two years ago, I decided to join in with some friends who … Continue reading So… I’m Doing the Whole30 Again…
Kids, next weekend is my 20-Year High School Reunion. That's right. I graduated from high school way back in 1998. That's the 20th century, y'all. Am I really old enough to have a 20-year reunion?

If you've been following this blog for even a few days, you know that my birthday was this past Sunday. I continually attempt to trick myself into believing that I'm younger than I actually am.

Have you ever woken up on Monday morning and thought, What was I thinking? Get your minds out of the gutter. It's all very innocent. But there's such a thing as doing too much sometimes. I woke up early this morning with that What was I thinking? thought rattling around in my sleep deprived brain. … Continue reading Three Nights, Three Parties
I was always a fan of How I Met Your Mother. It's a show that introduced me to a lot of heartfelt and hilarious concepts: the blue french horn, the slap bet, Robin Sparkles, and the Murtaugh List.
