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 […]

moving 101: PODS vs. UHAUL

Let me begin by saying, THANK GOD this move is over, and I don’t envy anyone who has to start this particular epic freaking journey anytime soon.  Good thing we like our new house, because I don’t plan on packing it up anywhere in the foreseeable future. 😂🙅‍♀️ That said, at the risk of sounding […]

5 Reasons Massachusetts Drivers Are Actually Awesome.

I’m from Connecticut.  I’m sure you’ve heard me mention it once or twice (per post 🤦‍♀️).  In Connecticut, (and perhaps elsewhere in New England, as we probably deal most regularly with them) we have a term for Massachusetts drivers.  We call them “Massholes.”  Because, well, they tend to drive like complete a**holes.  If you’re on […]

2 reasons to skip thanksgiving.

In September of 2014, I learned we were going to be moving to Wisconsin in the new year.  My older, wiser self now sees what a rare gem of an opportunity this was and continues to be.  And if I could do over, I would have skipped so many more holidays.  So many more. 😃 […]
