Easter Memories

Easter Memories

Since childhood, Easter has been a day filled with memories and lots of family time. We’d always get up early for the early service at church, ¬†head to my Grandma Rose’s house for lunch and an Easter egg hunt, and then later in the afternoon head to my Grandma Violet and Papa’s house for second […]


A Few of My Favorite Blogs

Everyday, one of the first things I do after checking my email and Facebook for new messages is to meander over to my trusty reader and see what new entries have been posted in the various blogs I’ve started following. Mixed in amongst the techie ones I’ve been aware of and have read daily for […]


With This Ring…

With This Ring…

A few months ago an article about a company that makes prototype engagement rings was brought to my attention, which made me think about my own preferences concerning engagement rings and proposals. The company mentioned in the article makes a mock-up ring, using a 3D printer and lower grade materials (silver instead of platinum of […]


Spring Is Coming…

Spring Is Coming…

Maybe just not in St. Louis, yet. ūüôĀ Spring weather is something I’ve been looking forward to all winter, and I’m very thankful that so far we’ve at least had one spring-like day here in the Lou this year. I just wish that maybe the sunshine and relatively warm weather could have stuck around for […]


Why We Write… Or Rather Why I Write

When I started this blog, I had no idea what direction it would take, or if I’d even enjoy writing on a consistent basis to keep going. Most of the time I’m still not sure what I want to get out of sharing my musings with the world, but just knowing that someone out there […]


Random Thoughts About Jasper

Random Thoughts About Jasper

With spring quickly approaching, the level of fur balls in my apartment has reached an all time high, requiring me to sweep or vacuum at least once a day. If I were to come home one day and see that Jasper is now bald, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least, but as I don’t […]


Pet Peeve #17: When Other Drivers Honk Immediately After the Light Turns Green

Most of the time when I’m in the car, the experience is pretty forgettable, but a few occasions stick out in recent memory as unpleasant due to actions taken by other drivers. Being out on the busy streets with so many other people isn’t just stressful, but earlier this week I encountered one of my […]


The Back Pain Saga

Over the course of roughly the last 11 years I’ve lived with chronic back and shoulder pain. From time to time I would mention it to my doctor, and go for an x-ray, but the pain never really reached a level so bad that a little dose of over the counter medicine couldn’t handle. Until […]


My Greatest Fear #6: Finding out Something I Like and Use is Being Discontinued or Retired

Last week when I was shopping for some of the necessities (shampoo, dog treats, and moisturizer), I experienced a moment of sheer panic when I discovered the store I was shopping at no longer carried the specific variety of moisturizer I’ve grown to love. After a fairly thorough search with the assistance of a friendly […]


Update on the UP Bracelet

Update on the UP Bracelet

Tomorrow (March 14th) will be the two-week mark since I started using the UP Band/Bracelet to track fitness and sleep patterns, so it seems like as good of a time as any to provide a little update with my opinions so far. In my earlier post about this gadget, I neglected to mention the name […]


Serial Dater or Serial Killer?

Tonight’s post is the latest of the Mars vs. Venus entries, where I’ll provide the female perspective on the topic and my friend and fellow blogger Jamey will provide his male perspective over on his blog. In the past, we’ve covered flirtation, workplace romances, and long-distance relationships, and if you haven’t read any of those […]


In Over My Head?

In Over My Head?

Over the weekend, I decided to start (and planned on finishing) a simple art project that I could actually hang on my walls. I already had most of the supplies needed on hand, thanks to a friend who gave me a stack of old magazines a few months ago, and some leftover paint from other […]


On Surrendering

Something I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about lately is the subject of surrendering. Webster’s Dictionary defines surrender as¬†1¬†a¬†:¬†to yield to the power, control, or possession of another upon compulsion or demand¬†<surrendered¬†the fort>;¬†b¬†:¬†to give up completely or agree to forgo especially in favor of another;¬†2¬†a¬†:¬†to give (oneself) up into the power of another […]


Five Things I Learned in Vegas

Five Things I Learned in Vegas

To a certain extent, I’m still recovering from my recent vacation to Las Vegas, and find myself constantly referencing things I did or learned on my trip. By no means am I an expert on Sin City, but do have some potentially valuable information to share. 1. Never question if a “statue” on the sidewalk […]


True Confession #6: My Addiction to Victoria’s Secret

One of many of the little pink bags I've accumulated over the years. This one happens to be from today and still contains my purchases, wrapped up like a present.

Most of the time when I need to make a purchase, I choose the route of online ordering (normally amazon) over physically going into a store. ¬† My one exception to this rule is when it comes to purchasing underwear and other lingerie (and of course household items and groceries). When it comes to my […]


Yes, Please: Peanut Butter Brownie Cupcakes

Yes, Please: Peanut Butter Brownie Cupcakes

In an effort to make my diet a little healthier, I decided to cut back a little on my baking projects, and haven’t made anything too decadent in a couple of weeks. I hadn’t really missed the sugary goodness of cupcakes or cookies until last week, when my friend Lauren introduced me to a brownie/cupcake […]


Difficult Decisions

Everyday it seems like we’re faced with a myriad of decisions, ranging from what to wear, what to eat, and how to act in certain situations. Most of those decisions are made without even giving the situation a second thought, but sometimes we’re forced to make decisions that require much deliberation and research or risk […]


Topless Treatment

While I was out in Vegas last week, I made an interesting observation: People treat you differently when you are topless. I’d noticed this trend to a certain extent in the past (a lot of current advertising campaigns are going the topless route– even Jennifer Aniston went topless to sell SmartWater), but in Sin City, […]
