hometown homage

As of about two weeks ago, we have officially begun “commuting” to “work” each day. AKA we wake up at Anthony’s parents house, drive an hour and twenty twice a day to work on our house and to come back to the in-laws to be fed dinner like the carefree teenagers we eternally wish to […]

do I need a special degree?

Happy Friday!  We made it through another week of climate confusion as I sit and type this in a light-but-long-sleeved shirt on this very mild July 13th. Shout out to my squish-nugget niece who turns four today!  (Please bow your heads & pray my mom wraps the gift I got her for me. Amen. 🙏) So I […]

I’m still alive!

I’m here to give the Bad Blogger award to…. myself! 🍾 Phew!  It has been a while since I’ve popped in around here!  As you know, my husband left his job a couple weeks ago and we have jumped in full steam ahead on renovating our house!  Which means, not much free time for the […]

Is that a drug reference?  According to Urban Dictionary it’s not, but according to something Anthony’s cousin once said, “dusty” seemed as though it were in reference to crack so… your guess is as good as […]

real talk tuesday: legal theft. aka airline policies

With the exception of the waiter my husband met on his Florida trip who apparently aspires to be a pilot for United Airlines, (bless his little heart) I think we can all pretty much agree that United is like the Walmart of all the major airlines.  Like, you don’t love going there, but when you’re in […]

good luck, chuck.

Happy Monday, folks!  It’s nice to see some sun after such a dreary, albeit warm weekend! I come to you today with a well-supported theory that my in-laws have an inconvenient truth attached to their traveling: If they are heading to or from Connecticut, one or more of their flights will be delayed and/or canceled, resulting […]
