Have you heard about Simple? Simple is a really cool new bank replacement. CK and I officially switched all of our really horrible old banking accounts over to Simple completely in August (after being on the waiting list for a Beta invite since June of 2010) and haven’t regretted it for a moment. We both […]

I’m not going to lie. I was really disappointed last year when Polar Seltzer  rolled out an array of limited edition holiday flavors and I couldn’t get them on the West Coast. Everyone back east was toasting with sparkling eggnog flavored water and I felt seriously left out. Fast forward to last week and what […]

My cousin Amanda and her husband Eric gave CK and I the Zoku Quick Pop Maker as a housewarming gift last month. How cool are they?!

An email arrived late last week from a mutual friend of ours, Rob Diebboll, who happens to be a lovely local artist. Rob recently moved his studio to the quaint seaside town of Rockport and invited us to stop by during the town’s Motif #1 Days festival. I’m not only a fan of Rob’s work […]
