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 to Halloween as an adult

How do kids Halloween? They put on costumes, ranging from store-bought printed plastic child-size garbage bags to phenomenally intricate creations labored over by intensely crafty parents. They wear these costumes, grab a hauling utensil (from more garbage bags to jack-o-lantern shaped buckets), head out and gleefully run from house to house demanding candy. Occasionally they ...

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 ...

Losing track of time – #HASHTAGHUMPDAY

I've been going a million miles a minute for nearly a week, now. Here's a quick recap of how I've been passing (or losing) my time. And since it's Wednesday (hopefully it's still Wednesday when I get this post up!) I'm linking up my recap with Laura over at Life With Lolo, for #HASHTAGHUMPDAY!     Once again, I'm hard at ...

Responses to a shamer, Zima and Dreams – Friday Link-Ups

Although last weekend was a three day-er, it felt incredibly short. While I got lots of things done, it didn't actually feel productive. But, since I was being productive, it also didn't feel relaxing. This weekend I'm aiming for maximum relaxation. In the meantime, I'm hanging out 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 Video ...

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. You can guess how the rest of my life fared.  Murphy's Law - anything that can go wrong, will. Here's hoping that Friday closes not only ...

Laughter, keeping it together and bullshit – Friday Link-Ups

After 18 days of rain, the sun finally showed up in Florida this week. I may be the only person that was a little sad about it. Back to sweltering humidity and sun so hot it hurts! (For the record, I only truly complain about the heat for small portions of July and August - for ...

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, ...
