Why I Blog

Sharing old blog posts in 2020 might be one of my new favorite things. Enjoy this post from February of 2011.

*Today begins a weekly series I thought would be kind of fun. I am sharing an old post that I dig up from the archives here in honor of my 10-year blogging anniversary this June!
Each Friday, a new post that hasn’t seen the light of day in a long time will be republished and I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane. I love the idea of awakening posts from a graveyard of words.
*Full disclosure- I have edited the shit out of my grammar, punctuation, and spelling (I did not, however, change the content). It appears that 2011 Kari was dumb as a box of rocks. To be fair to myself, I had only begun writing a blog six months before this post published. Apparently, that’s also when I started speaking English for the first time as well. 😉

It’s The End of the Decade? Sounds Like an R.E.M. Song to Me

I had no idea that January 1st marked a brand new decade until three weeks ago and only because I read it on a friend's blog and was like, well shit.  Although, according to my friend up there, "well, some will argue that the decade doesn’t officially end until December 31, 2020, because there was… Continue reading It’s The End of the Decade?

“Merry Christmas, Shitter’s Full”

Disclaimer #1- this post will be filled with bathroom humor and swear words. If you don't like that sort of thing, read The Pioneer Woman or something. I tried to think of a better title for a post filled with nonsensical and fun Christmas anecdotes but I honestly couldn't think of anything more fitting. I… Continue reading “Merry Christmas, Shitter’s Full”

Vite it, Sto mangiando Tater Tots- Parte Otto (Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Part Eight)

This month's post is partially in Italian to honor the tradition of my Dad's "famous" Christmas Eve meatballs that go along with our annual Christmas Eve spaghetti dinner. I asked my dad to tell me again the story of how the Christmas Eve spaghetti and meatballs began and here it is somewhat paraphrased: My Dad's… Continue reading Vite it, Sto mangiando Tater Tots- Parte Otto (Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Part Eight)

Why I Can’t Have Nice Things- Bathroom Floors Edition

It all started back in 2012 when I was tired of looking at this:     AND this:     The above is a kid's bathroom for two girls, ages 12 and 4 at the time (SOB). But it was ugly and I wanted a prettier bathroom for the girls and because of that, we… Continue reading Why I Can’t Have Nice Things- Bathroom Floors Edition

Movies I Love (Listed by Year)

I blame Buzzfeed for this post. I was innocently taking a quiz about how what movies I loved would tell me what Thanksgiving side dish best represents my personality (stuffing but this isn't surprising) when I saw a list of movies (by year) from 2000-2009 that I loved. Recently, our family was out to lunch… Continue reading Movies I Love (Listed by Year)

Nobody Puts Gravy in a Corner- I Didn’t Make That Up

I needed to add that to the title because it's a good one but it's not something I came up with. It's a play on a Dirty Dancing line and no, I won't elaborate because if you've never watched Dirty Dancing, I don't know that you can read my blog anymore. I did google "nobody… Continue reading Nobody Puts Gravy in a Corner- I Didn’t Make That Up
