December Daily

Happy December, everyone!  I hope that you all had a warm and merry Thanksgiving.  (And to my Jewish friends, I hope that you had a blast celebrating the a once-in-a-lifetime — or really, once-in-79,000-lifetimes! — Thanksgivukkah.  So cool!!) I spent most of my holiday week at home with family in...

Single For The Holidays

Alright, it’s officially three days before Thanksgiving, and my “man of the house” is still a 4-legged, tail-wagging Morkie.  Although his manliness is probably a little bit in question, being that he went in for another little Hallmark dog audition last week and they dressed him up as…(ahem)…a girl!  I...

November Stitch Fix Review

November marked my third “fix” with Stitch Fix.  And I’m happy to announce that it was a total success.  For the first time ever, I decided to keep all five pieces!! Well, to be honest, I was only planning to keep four.  But since you get 25% off your...

Poetry and Printing

I have to be honest.  My book club is awesome. Said awesomeness is due entirely to the group of amazing, creative, bright, thoughtful women who I’m grateful to call friends and fellow bookies.  But it is also due to the oh-so-official traditions that govern our little monthly get-togethers.  Hours...

AFI Festival 2013 + “Lone Survivor” Premiere

What to do when your friend texts late at night with news that: a) she just scored super-hard-to-get tickets to an AFI Festival Hollywood film premiere (just seven days away) b) and that said film is a true story about an inspiring, courageous team of Navy SEALs c) and that...

October Stitch Fix

It’s Stitch Fix time again! Clearly, I’m running about a week behind sharing my October “fix” in November.  But hey, better late than never.  :) I’d say my October Stitch Fix was mildly successful.  All of my clothes fit this time (yay!).  But strangely, there were hardly any warm clothes...

10 Things TO Say To Single People

Oh my goodness.  I’m going to stop making promises about getting these posts published in a timely manner.  Life seems to have been crazy since I posted my list of 10 Things NOT To Say To Single People.  But I’m finally back as promised with a follow-up post for...

10 Things NOT To Say To Single People

Ok, back to this conversation of being single! Today I’m tapping into my inner Clinton Kelly, and am going to give you my conversational “makeover” tips on what not to say to single people.  Oh baby, do I have some experience with this one. I think I have heard just...

My First Stitch Fix

To all of the friends who have been twisting my arm to give this a try, I finally did it. I Stitch fix-ed. Ok, when I say friends, I mostly mean my blogger friends.  Because ever since Stitch Fix came on the scene recently, every blogger I know has...

Currently

Happy First Day of Autumn Eve, everyone!  I’m getting ready to take off on a camping trip with my book club in a few hours, but thought I’d pop in a quick “Currently” post before I head out. This month has definitely been a great one, I think in...

The Word “Single”

First of all, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who read my 30 and Single post.  I had NO idea that so many people would be interested in tuning in (and chiming in) on the topic.  Nor did I honestly consider the possibility that you...
