Resolution #2- Be Less of a Perfectionist
Photo credit: evey in orbit I am a bit of a perfectionist. I will admit it. There are days that I will come home from a long day at work and not be able to relax until I Windex the coffee table, put the dishes away, and tidy up everything that is not in it’s “perfect place”. Okay, so I am a perfectionist. I am realizing, after countless times of hearing my husband tell me things like, “A...
New Year’s Resolution #1
Not pictured, me…not present, my brother Dillon and family I have decided to write a post each day this week explaining my top 5 New Year’s Resolutions, before the infamous day comes. Before I jump right into it, you should know that I am still slightly on the way down from the bustling high of last week, and adjusting to being one of two (+ cat) in our very little apartment in a very big...
Feelin’ Like Italian
On Sundays I often feel like making something that takes a little longer to cook, something that fills the whole house with warmth and delicious smells. Today, I found myself yearning to make something that fulfilled all of these, in addition to being a new recipe, and meat-free. After all, I have survived over a month now without eating meat.

So after an accumulation of a few things; i.e., watching Food Inc., and getting grossed out by pondering exactly what a hot dog is, we have decided to eat more veggies. Not go completely vegetarian, I mean, my dad used to call me the cheeseburger queen for a reason, so I’m sure I’ll still give in every now and then (preferably if it’s grass-fed, organic beef) and yes, I may have had a turkey...

I have gone through 3.5 boxes of tissues, 1 can of Lysol, endless bottles of orange juice and Gatorade, and swallowed more DayQuil and Nyquil than one body should ever have to. I have been trying so hard to keep the air flowing in the apartment with the fans on and open windows, and cleaning up after myself so my...
How To Fit Your Life Into a Quart-Sized Plastic...
After a recent trip and the busting of not one, but two plastic bag zippers, I have decided to re-think my traveling necessities and come up with a few ground rules. Rule number one: Keep it simple. Yes, sometimes this is easier said than done, but considering your toiletries have to cram into this little bag, which is crammed into your already small carry-on luggage, and you are more than...
I Like My Food Touching
I’ve been thinking a lot about this phrase lately. And the fact that some people say they can’t handle it when the food on their plate touches. Really? Someone should tell them it’s all headed for the same place. The reason I’ve been thinking about this is because I’ve been procrastinating on starting a blog for so long, and this week I finally started to get serious about what to call it. ...
