After renting the sommelier documentary on Netflix, Somm, I lately have found myself to be a bit of a wine connoisseur. And a terrible one on that note. The acid is pungent…. much like….. grapes when fermented…….. (duh) … smells like baking spices, some sort of jelly doughnut…. a well balanced old fashioned and pepperoni […]

My sister got my son a full drum set (cymbals & all) for Christmas. I don’t think I have ever hated live music more than I do now. I’m not kidding you. He’s so terrible. He can’t even keep a beat.  You probably think I’m being incredibly harsh and am one of those non-encouraging parents […]

  I was in love with a man once, until he showed up on The Voice wearing jeans that were tighter than mine, and that is saying a lot being the fact that I’m a chubbier than usual self.  The man you ask? Sam Hunt. I know. So terrible. But, my eyes just can’t help […]

    Has a movie ever enraptured you so much that you feel like you’ve actually been there? Or you can physically picture yourself as a character in the film? I have a movie that does that to me almost every time and I swear it leaves me on cloud nine for a couple of […]

Until recently fresh figs to me were the forbidden fruit. I could go to a restaurant and see them on the menu and instantly want all of it. And i always wanted more. But for some reason I never thought that I could actually purchase the fruit myself and use it for my own personal […]
