Girls Weekend – St Pete Beach Staycation

This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend a Girls Weekend on the beach with a few of my closest friends. Although technically a Staycation, it still felt like a vacation. And sometimes that's difficult when you already live in a place that most people think of as a vacation destination. There's a possibility that ...

Desperately Seeking Sugar

Trying to find healthy treats that taste as good as sugary, carb-loaded and fattening treats is hard. Potentially an impossibility. First, there are all the trickster foods in the stores. Items that gloat about being naturally fat free are often loaded up with sugar. In the context of chemical makeup, sugar is not a fat, but thinking ...

Bored cats, BB cream and Bourbon & Bordeaux – Friday Link-Ups

It's been one of those weeks where everything seems to go wrong. Perhaps you noticed that my website was MIA for nearly 48 hours? That sets the stage, if you will.

Just a few weekends ago, Tall Guy and I were the owners of four tickets to a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game. We invited a couple that we're friends with. The game was scheduled for 1:10 pm on ...

Bachelorette Kaitlyn: Finale Recap

Although I included my Bachelorette Finale (and After the Final Rose) Recap in my Friday Favorites post (published on Sunday), it seemed like a good idea to create a dedicated Bachelorette Recap post. Also, it gives me another opportunity to advertise Bourbon & Bordeaux, and shameless self-promotion is not a problem for me right now. What is Bourbon ...

Sneezes, snacks and a BIG surprise – Friday Link-Ups

That's right, there is a BIG surprise in this post! But first, you may notice that I'm doing my Friday link-ups on a Sunday. That's because, while the majority of my waking time over the last week has been spent in front of a computer, I've been editing video instead of writing. Or rather, learning to edit video. Also, ...
