Holiday procrastination – #HASHTAGHUMPDAY Confessions

Now that my body has finally recovered from November FoodFest (Thanksgiving), I'm cruising into December (according to the calendar, anyway. It's still in the 80s in Florida) in shorts and tee, listening to holiday music and hanging out with Life with Lolo and Genuinely Lauren for #HASHTAGHUMPDAY and Alanna & Company and Plucky in Love for Humpday Confessions. Let's do this!     I confess ...

How I spent, last weekend – #HASHTAGHUMPDAY Confessions

The countdown to November FoodFest is on! Oh, sorry. Thanksgiving. The countdown to Thanksgiving is on. Wrapping up my pre-holiday week with Life with Lolo for #HASHTAGHUMPDAY and Alanna & Company for Humpday Confessions. Let's do this!     Speaking of food, I must confess that my recent picks for dining out have been woefully off the mark. Last Friday night, Tall Guy ...

Peace, procrastination and les poissons – Friday Link-Ups

The last seven days have been hard for this world. I hope that this weekend we all find a little more love, and a little more peace. In the meantime, let's pretend things are already getting better, and we're able to carry on as we always do. So I'm hanging out with my favorite Friday link-ups - Oh, Hey Friday, ...

Talking, smelling and tasting – Friday Link-Ups

Apparently it's Friday the 13th. Usually I'm aware of it when that happens. Had to actually see someone else mention it on their blog for it to click in the ol' brain. I spent a lot of time this week working on a real-deal copywriting project, and it seems to have fried gray matter a little. Thank ...

Puzzling #HASHTAGHUMPDAY Confessions

In an attempt to move on gracefully from my Gloomy Gus post, yesterday, where I basically threw myself a pity party and questioned my self-worth, I'm going to move forward with Life with Lolo and #HASHTAGHUMPDAY, one of my very favorite link-ups. I'm also turning my #HASHTAGHUMPDAY into confessions so that I can link up with Alanna ...

National Bourbon Heritage Month

September is  National Bourbon Heritage Month, and I'm squeezing in my celebratory offering at the last possible minute. (I did just explain my problem with timeliness in giving of gifts, so my tardiness for this event shouldn't be a complete surprise) A few things to know: I have never been a bourbon drinker. No bourbon, no whiskey, no thanks. My YouTube collaboration ...

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 ...

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, ...

Beauty, thunderstorms and peach crumble – Friday Link-Ups

Currently avoiding, and dreading, my Friday run... and checking in with my favorite Friday link-ups: Oh, Hey Friday, High Five for Friday, and Friday Favorites (add'l links below)!   Favorite Quote This Week   Favorite Funny This Week   Favorite Weather This Week THUNDERSTORMS! Finally! Here's a fun fact: during the summer, in St. Petersburg, Florida, there are daily afternoon rain showers. It's fascinating, it's weird, it's cool. Tampa ...
