PlateJoy Might Save My Grocery Related Sanity

May 5, 2014

Hi! It’s me. I haven’t written on here in forever and ever and ever. I can regale you with excuse after excuse but really I just needed a blogging break. A nice big, long hiatus was just what the WordPress doctor ordered. So what’s new? I just finished grad school, CK and I finally bought […]

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.

As I not so patiently waited for the evening of my authentic Chinese cooking class to arrive my one constant mantra became dumplings…dumplings…dumplings.

A hearty breakfast immediately became my number one priority of the day. So like any good iPhone […]

I started a challenging new job last year and then moved into a crazy loft a few months ago. Both of these major events have changed my usual routine immensely.

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?!

I’ve just returned home from an advanced screening of Julie and Julia, and while I’d like to stay calm, cool, and collected and write an analytical and objective review of the film without using effusive words I have to admit that this will be an utter impossibility because I found the film to be absolutely […]
