It’s Mid-January and Homemade Thin Mints Will Save Us

Listen, I love a good Girl Scout cookie like the rest of you, but I don’t have the patience to wait until February. I also know no one locally who sells Girl Scout cookies anymore except for the kids that camp out at the local grocery store, so I needed a thin mint recipe and I have a feeling you do too.

This thin mint obsession actually started as a Christmas cookie recipe I found via Pinterest a few years ago. It was easy, three ingredients, and it tasted amazing, so it stayed in the old recipe box until the following Christmas. Then over Christmas break this year, I thought, why am I only making these during the holidays? This is a great year-round cookie! 

Then I also thought about how January is so damn

Things to Make Winter Not Suck (A lot Of This Is Gonna Be Food)

I am trying to like winter, but winter is not cooperating. I created a board on Pinterest called Winter Stuffs a few months ago because I was doing soul homework and feeling optimistic.  I hate winter and I can't pinpoint when that began because when I was younger I didn't mind it. When I was… Continue reading Things to Make Winter Not Suck (A lot Of This Is Gonna Be Food)

Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop 2014

A Grace Full Life

I am friends with all the people I met at this conference, to this day. I loved this experience so much. 

As a writer, this is one conference I would recommend you attend either virtually or in-person (if that is ever a thing again).

When my friend Shannon called me last fall inquiring if I wished to go to the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop in the spring, it intrigued me.

I remember Erma Bombeck from my childhood. My mom and grandma would watch her on Good Morning America. They bought her books and chuckled at her newspaper columns. I didn’t read her or watch her or laugh at her because I was, like, seven. I was laughing at Scooby-Doo. But she made two women whom I cherished laugh, so I guess you can say I laughed by association.

She was from my home state of…

Universe-Ism #2 -Pity Party for Zero

For most of my life, I had the crazy fear that if I told of something I wanted to do, I would fail at it. For example, if I said, “My blog will be successful!”, it would mean unequivocal failure. Because by asserting it, I was being overly confident and thus willing myself to fail. I… Continue reading Universe-Ism #2 -Pity Party for Zero

Creating Idiotic Canva and Pic Monkey Graphics Is Why I’ll Never Get a Million Followers

So here I am writing a ton of posts and articles for my other job on a lazy Saturday afternoon when suddenly I got the stupidest brainstorm known to man.

Backstory- I was creating graphics for my blog on Canva (a site with a ton of free DIY graphics) when I see just nonsensical situations played out within those graphics.

And I was all “I COULD CREATE THE BEST (and by best I mean worst) GRAPHICS WITH TERRIBLE (and by terrible I mean magnificent) WORDS ON THEM”.

Friends, I have a shit-ton of work to do. Like, paid work. Sitting in the hopper waiting for me to work on it.

But this is so much more fun!

Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Episode 22 (Looks Like We Made It, Barry Manilow)

A new year. A new administration. Let’s kick off the newness with a glorious song to bask in with lyrics that match our fresh start. I found this song a few days after I entered menopause. I was watering my plants in the kitchen when this song came on my Spotify. I took notice of… Continue reading Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Episode 22 (Looks Like We Made It, Barry Manilow)
