Just briefly this evening I thought it might be fun to report that I have definitely found my Christmas ornament to commemorate 2012. When I saw this trio of happy and not so happy marshmallows on the ModCloth website I burst into peels of laughter. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve burned my own s’more […]

I have way too many leftover odds and ends from CK’s birthday last Saturday taking up space in the refrigerator so I’ve spent this week trying very hard to not let them go to waste.

I purchased a copy of the Annotated Christmas Carol to read this year. This is hardcore stuff folks. If you aren’t familiar with annotated versions of books then you are in for a treat of book-gasmic proportions. My gorgeous hardcover copy of a Christmas Carol not only includes the entire original 1843 text and over 100 […]

A few months ago I won a giveaway on The Beholder blog for an amazon gift card that allowed me to finally fulfill my dream of owning a proper Cuisinart Food Processor. Previously CK and I were the not-so-proud owners of an absolutely horrible contraption that we bought out of necessity one afternoon at Target […]
