What Would You Do If a Loved One had a Medical Emergency?

At some point or another in life, most people will receive a phone call with some awful news about a family member and have to decide to rush to the hospital, or stay at home/work until you are able to be of some help. While it may seem like a no-brainer, for me this would […]


Well, That’s Cake-tastic

Ok, so I promise this is my last entry about food for a while. Earlier in the week I mentioned that my sister was planning a cake themed around Dr Who as the rest of my birthday present.  In the past, she’s made a couple of very fun cakes for her daughter, and each year they […]


My Mom(s)

Since today is Mother’s Day, I thought it would  be fitting to share a little about my Mom and some of the other women in my life who played an important role in my upbringing. My Mom has always been one of my favorite people, and someone who is very close to me. She always […]


Sister Time: Baseball Edition

This week I’ve had a couple of new and fun experiences while urban camping with my sister. We realized we aren’t really roughing it the first night while sitting side-by-side on an air-bed with our matching MacBook Pros. (Yes, I realize it makes me a little bit of a hipster to say the full name […]


Urban Camping

Disclaimer: This is not a story about how I have suddenly become one of those Occupy Movement people, but rather a completely different type of camping I’m about to experience. My older sister and I are about to embark on what is sure to be an interesting adventure over the next couple of weeks. Melanie […]


Thrift Store Treasure

Over the years, I’ve learned that thrift stores can be fun to visit, and have even found some interesting things while browsing. I am by no means an expert on finding the best deals/items at these places- my Grandma Rose and older sister Melanie are the reigning thrift store pros in my family, but I […]


Twin Fascination

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve had a fascination with twins. I’m not quite sure why, but the idea of having the kind of bond or connection that only a twin can share has always been something I wish I could have experienced.  Growing up, I went to school with a set of […]


Strangers On A Plane: Vacation With Mom

This is the first time I’ve ever gone on a trip with just my mom and myself, and so far we’ve had a great time and some really good conversations. Over the last couple of days, I have learned, or rather re-learned, some important things about her. My mom loves to go out and have […]


Sister Time

My little sister Emily and I have an unofficial tradition, where we go see new movies, when possible, on opening night at the midnight release. Thursday/Friday we will be able to add The Hunger Games to our list of movies watched during our sister-time. We’ve managed to see most of Twilight and Harry Potter series this way, and […]


An Overly Emotional Weekend

This past weekend was emotionally, physically and mentally exhausting as I attended my older brother’s wedding and wedding festivities. It was a time of celebration, and I can’t remember being so happy or proud for him. Before the big day, I told myself that I was not going to join the ‘Criers Club,’ but that […]
