A New Adventure Every Single Day

A New Adventure Every Single Day

For the last year or so (maybe longer), I’ve mentally adopted a philosophy of trying to have some sort of adventure every day. I recently shared this philosophy and was excited to discover the person I was talking to has a similar approach to life (and it felt a little like we were odd kindred […]


Welcome Back: Arrested Development

Welcome Back: Arrested Development

First of all, I’d like to apologize for the evident lack of new and/or interesting posts that don’t involve kittens lately. Between a combination of seemingly not having enough time/energy to write, a lack of inspiration for new content not involving kittens being silly, and my desire to actually post things people want to read, […]


Football Fun

Football Fun

For the first time ever I attended a professional soccer (football since it was teams from the UK) game, and it was amazing. My friend Steph and I arrived at Busch stadium about half an hour before the game, and were both shocked at the turnout for the friendly game being played tonight between Chelsea […]


DIY for the Win: Homemade Broiler Pan

I should have taken a picture of this with the steak on it, but it smelled too good once it was cooked to not eat it right away. Also, I put a sheet of aluminum foil down to save on cleanup.

Earlier today I decided that an excellent dinner would be a steak, as my plans for tomorrow include stopping by the Red Cross and donating blood. Since I sometimes tend to have low iron, I spent most of the day (when I had a second to breathe at work– it was a rare super-ridiculously busy […]


If You Give a Kitten a Strawberry

If You Give a Kitten a Strawberry

Last summer I learned that Jasper will do just about anything to get his paws on fresh fruit, specifically apples. In the past, he’s even gone so far as to take a bite out of one while my sister was in the process of eating it– and she ended up giving him the rest of […]


My First Coffee Tasting

Since I’m still in the process of trying to kick the coffee habit, it might seem strange that I’d attend a coffee tasting, but when I had the opportunity to tag along at the last minute with a friend tonight, I jumped at the chance. I’m always excited to try new things, and until today, […]


Backsliding

About 9 or 10 months ago I made the decision to give up coffee, and other than a small cup on special occasions like Christmas morning breakfast, I was doing quite well living without coffee, or other heavily caffeinated drinks in my life. Until about 3 weeks ago, when I purchased coffee and creamer to […]


Life Lessons My Mom Taught Me

Last year on Mother’s Day, I wrote about the women in my life (not just my Mom) who were instrumental in raising and mothering me. This year, I planned on expanding that list with some of the other key women in my life, but changed my mind and decided to share some of the life […]


Best Buds

Best Buds

Since getting the kittens a little over a week ago, I’ve noticed that my daily picture taking has skyrocketed. Jasper is always a good subject for cute photos, but when adding a kitten or two to the mix, the cuteness factor only increases. While both cats seem to get along with Jasper quite well, I’ve […]


Stranded on a Desert Island

The other day while I was trying to fall asleep, a completely random thought crossed my mind, and I’ve been dwelling on it ever since: If you were stranded on a desert island, what one item would you be most grateful for if it appeared randomly. In this hypothetical situation of being stranded on an […]


A Movie Review of Sorts: Young Adult

A Movie Review of Sorts: Young Adult

While perusing movies on Netflix the other day (with the assistance of one kitten), I noticed that they were recommending I watch Young Adult. The movie came out a couple of years ago, so hopefully my thoughts/review of this one won’t be too much of a spoiler to anyone. While I didn’t have high hopes for […]


My First Bikram Yoga Class

Today, after many weeks of deliberation, I decided to sign up for a yoga class near my work. I’ve done some yoga in the past, and while I expected the class to be more slightly more difficult than ones I’d attended in the past (yoga is all they do at this place, whereas all previous […]


Apartment Woes

Since moving into my apartment last summer I’ve mostly had good experiences, but there are definitely some negative parts, too. When I was looking for places to live, the one I ended up with seemed ideal at first glance, purely for the square footage and proximity to my work. The price of rent was pretty […]
