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

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...

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...

30 and Single

(Taptaptap.  Ahem, is this thing on?) Hi.  My name is Ali, and I am 30 years old and single. And call me crazy, but I’ve decided to blog about it.

‘Friday Night Lights’ Trivia

Ok, I couldn’t resist doing one more post on Friday Night Lights.  Today we’re talking FNL trivia! Since I watched the show on Netflix, I didn’t get the chance to see all of the bonus footage and interviews on the DVDs, which is always a “must” after I finish...

10 Reasons To Watch ‘Friday Night Lights’

I have now officially joined the ranks of the thousands of Friday Night Lights fans who binge-watched this show in a matter of weeks.  Unfortunately, this happened for me years after the show went off the air, and I’m bummed that I wasn’t able to contribute to the ratings...

Labor Day Weekending

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend — free of laboring, and full of fun! Mine ended up being a full and wonderful weekend.  And with the exception of a few hours spent on a freelancing project that I forgot about (oops), it was blissfully free...
