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 […]

for the things I have now.

I love Facebook’s “On This Day” feature.  If you haven’t seen it, it reaches back through all your years of Facebook and highlights everything that happened on that day each year.  Just don’t go too far back.  Your high school posts will probably make you want to go back in time and smother your younger, […]

it’s visitor season!

Happy Friday all! I hope you all recovered from your three day weekends just in time for another weekend!  Ha.  Probably easier said than done, but isn’t it amazing how much quicker a four-day week goes by than a five-day?!  I vote for four days on, three days off.  Am I right or am I […]

a bittersweet date

January 17th. It happened. I had noticed a larger amount of CM this morning than normal, and thought I may have been ovulating.  So I peed in a cup, dipped an ovulation test in, and lo and behold, it came back positive!  Now, for someone who only gets a boatload of negative everythings, from ovulation sticks […]
