I sunbathed today. Yes. It was glorious. And it was only an hour, because it was during work lunch and because I didn’t want to turn into a total raisin. Homegirl is going to be 30 this year. Gotta start ironing out the wrinks before my pruning becomes permanent. Any who. I’m trying to be less lame […]

HOLY cheese and rice. WE made it through the satanic month of February !  The month as a whole just sucks. First off. You’re super unattractive and pale (unless you’re a Ginger, the red heads tend to thrive in these months) and all you want to do is quit your stupid new year res. diet and just […]

Ugh sometimes I am just the WORST. And recently the worst being my time management. But me and the baby child have been super under the weather.  In which case, time literally moves at a snails pace. Actually my pace is more comparable to a slug being drowned in salt. I know, horrifying image, but […]

I couldn’t find more of a perfect time to join the “February Drop-Off” than the present moment. With yesterdays unfortunate game-day winnings and the dreaded hallmark holiday approaching there is no better time than to stuff ones face with delicious calories of sweet sweet heavenly joy. I mean, after all, isn’t that basically why the month […]

I would like to start off by saying who ever felt like there should be zero disclaimer on homemade masks clearly never made a homemade mask before. And if there are disclaimers I am just an idiot who chose not to read them. Can we discuss ground ginger + ground tumeric literally is a face […]

  Currently experiencing Monday Morning anxiety #thestruggleisreal. Or more like, #iputwaytoomuchsugarinmycoffeeandicantstopshaking Now picturing how in seven years there is a very strong chance my life synopsis will be comparable to Matt Foley’s, however praying that the van at the very least is an airstream.  Thank you Mondays, for bringing out my inner negativity and making me look […]

Asparagus and Caramelized Onion Spring Pizza

I’m not really a person who brunches…. anymore. Having a child who literally turns into wild bull whenever we dine out can be a daunting task in the AM, especially when having to parent solo – so I’ve learned to bow out on any public food gatherings and save a little face along with gray hairs.   But I […]

GUYS ITS FINALLY BASEBALL SEASON! And I literally couldn’t care less. Well, I couldn’t have cared less until I moved to St. Louis. You basically have to root for the Cardinals in order to be socially accepted into any circle. Granted my circle might just be me and my son, however, I’m pretty sure he […]
