is it really a competition if the other person has no idea?

  You know that euphoric feeling you experience after a good trip to Costco? … Just me? Well, go to Costco.  You’ll see what I mean.  So much.  For so little.  And if you don’t, maybe you’re not ready for what Costco has ready for you. 😜 Anywho, I don’t know, I just woke up […]

long overdue updates

Happy Monday, blogosphere! Sheesh, it has been a solid… at least two weeks since I updated this dusty biotch.

muffin mayhem

Happy Friday friends! Quick life update: I have been super absent from the blogosphere lately thanks in large part to my husband’s miserable job.  Does anyone remember that movie Life is Beautiful?  Where the dad basically makes the Nazi Concentration camps sound like a fun summer camp for the sake of his son?  Well imagine […]

how not to sell a security system

A little over a month ago, we had just moved into our house.  We were in the process of unpacking some boxes and figuring out where to go with everything. About midway through the day and about 80% of the way through the suggested baking time of my first electric oven-botched batch of chocolate chip […]
