This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Minute® Ready to Serve Guys. This is the year! I refuse to be apart of the ‘February drop off’ and am feeling pretty optimistic about it. However…. I have a feeling I probably feel this way every year, so just really really hoping that […]

This last weekend teaser of 80 degree springtime weather? Holy nuts and bolts. We’re screwed.  Or if anyone else’s upper lip is perspiring just thinking about this past weekend then you are not alone. Welcome to the beginning of six months worth of pure cheese sweats. It’s only downhill from here. Unless someone comes up with scented air conditioned […]

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.

Is it just me…. or does this Dumb & Dumber scene also pop into your head any time anyone mentions “sea bass”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_y_tQMtnYo And that is maybe my 29801023981 D & D reference on this blog.

Which basically is unheard of. So therefore I am probably lying. Which I am, sadly. SO I retract the losing my appetite statement. That was […]

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 […]

Oh the joys of summer dieting….. said absolutely no one ever. The fact that last years shorts could easily be mistaken for a bikini bottom due to the increase in size of my tail wagon is not helping my current situation in any way, shape or form. If there was a non invasive method for stomach […]

Has anyone seen 45 Years? Well if you haven’t, don’t. And if you have, please tell me that you too have decided to now dedicate your life to collecting cats and repelling the opposite sex as best as you can.  Even though I don’t really have much of a problem with that last part, I […]
