It's fall, officially. It's also the first of October. Which has gotten me to thinking about all the parties that are coming up in this last quarter of the year. I mean, we've got Thanksgiving. Christmas. Hanukkah. New Year's Eve... Continue reading

While we were on our anniversary trip to Chicago in May, we both got emailed from TicketMaster. Chvrches was going to be playing in Northern Kentucky at the tail end of September. Of course, we jumped all over that opportunity,... Continue reading

I really didn't know what else to title this post. I really don't talk about my religious beliefs that much on this blog, but I'm making an exception today. I was raised in what you would now call (and maybe... Continue reading

I feel like this week's been a bit on the colorful side. Not in activity, but in actual color. I mean, the leaves are barely starting to change, last weekend I got a not-so-neon green tee for running a road... Continue reading

So, it's autumn. Officially. And now I feel less weird about buying and drinking pumpkin beers. But I also really want to start making all the food that you can make with all the brews - beer, coffee, and heck,... Continue reading

Okay, so I got my September Birchbox a couple weeks ago, and in the interest of savoring what I have, I've been taking it kind of slow with all of the products. For starters, I love - like really love... Continue reading

So, I know it's Wednesday, but I have your latest installment of the Tuesday Tunes. Just a little late. I got a little caught up in some housework on Tuesday and forgot to press publish! This week, though, I wanted... Continue reading

After crossing a finish line, getting a medal that doubles as a bottle opener (for reals, guys), there is nothing quite like getting a beer (and pretzels!) to celebrate your victory. And that is totally how Saturday morning went down,... Continue reading

Okay, so I need to be a bit of a girl today. I just want to talk about a few things that I am absolutely loving lately. Like, for realsies. Especially as I'm getting ready to run a 7k on... Continue reading

So, when you think fall what do you think about? I'm guessing crispy leaves, pumpkins and pie, crisp air, and hillsides in varying shades of crimson, orange and gold. Or some combination thereof. Oh, and there's apples. Fresh, crunchy apples.... Continue reading

Okay, so, remember when we were teenagers and movie soundtracks were chock full of trip-hop/ethereal-ish music? I'm thinking Sneaker Pimps, Portishead, even Zero 7 - what we would probably call "house music" today? Lately I've noticed a resurgence of bands... Continue reading

Do you ever catch yourself wanting cake "just because?" Not for a holiday or occasion, other than "it's a good day for cake?" Because really, sometimes I think it's just me. But is there ever a wrong time for cake?... Continue reading

I don't often impulse buy my beer. I say "not often" because normally when I'm trying to choose a beer, I'm looking for a style or a brand, or something very specific. BUT. I totally went the impulse buy route... Continue reading

Not long after I got my pixie cut, I found myself getting asked all the questions I'd anticipated: "Weren't you nervous?" "Do you regret it?" "What does your husband think?" "Do you miss your long hair ever?" "What about ponytails?"... Continue reading

Cage the Elephant has a strong musical style influenced by southern rockers. Their song "Come a Little Closer" is a good example of why their sound works so well. Continue reading

Friday night, Allen and I went to a concert in Columbus, Ohio. One we'd been waiting months for: The Black Keys, with opening band Cage the Elephant. We had seen The Keys play before - a week before we got... Continue reading

Last week, I built my own six-pack, and this week, I'm talking about one of the brews I picked: Sam Adams Rebel IPA. Which, admittedly, I chose because I thought the label was really cool. Also, I really like IPAs,... Continue reading

In the wake of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's wedding, as well as Jenny McCarthy's wedding to Donnie Wahlberg, there have been a lot of conversations about the details. Where did they wed? Who else was there? And the one... Continue reading

Okay, so I know it's only the second of September, but it seems like most anyone who has anything to do with music is talking about the songs of summer. Where I primarily listen to indie music, I can't say... Continue reading

I'm not even sure where to go with this one today, because folks, life lately? Has been a touch busy. Not necessarily in a bad way, it just seems like things are all about the go-go-go. And now it's Labor... Continue reading

Have you ever built your own six-pack of beer? It's awesome for a multitude of reasons and exactly what I want to talk about this week. Why? Because I can do it at my grocery store and? It's awesome. It... Continue reading

I discovered a tumblr today that reimagines popular songs as sonnets, and I think it's a thing of beauty. It's called Pop Sonnet and it's exceptionally entertaining and well, makes me laugh. Check it out - but be warned, it's... Continue reading

I've been listening to this song since much earlier this year. But when I first heard it, I'm going to be honest, I wasn't sure if I should like it. It doesn't really fit what I normally listen to in... Continue reading

I don't know why I have felt like sharing more articles lately, and I don't plan to do this all the time, but this week is apparently Coffee Week at Fast Company and well, I love coffee. I can't start... Continue reading

So, today, I thought I would talk a little bit about IBU instead of looking at a new brew, just to spice it up a little bit. What is IBU? Well, it stands for International Bitterness Units and refers to... Continue reading
