SO... it has been one week and one day since my ablation and I can honestly tell you I feel physically 100% fine from it. I am thoroughly surprised at how well everything feels in that general area. I thought for sure there would be some remaining pain or soreness,... Continue reading

It really was an odd feeling. I likened it to the feeling I had after miscarrying. Like an empty vessel. But that feeling really does lessen...
Thank you so much, Brandi. You are such a supportive friend! I really appreciate it. xoxo
I guess it's natural to feel sadness when ANYthing is removed from our bodies. But when it's something that we have used to define us for so long, it feels sort of surreal, right? I am glad your outcome ended up being a good one, Alison. xoxo
As promised, here is my honest account of how things went yesterday. I want to start this post by saying how I feel today: I feel 100% fine! As if I had not undergone any type of procedure yesterday at all. I am writing this at 8:00 AM. I know... Continue reading

I know my blog is all over the place, and I'm cool with that because, well, my life is all over the place. Take for example this current post. It is going to be about something I never thought in a million years I'd be writing about. It does not... Continue reading

Jayson Palmer of Blue Dusk Productions I am so grateful for Facebook. Not only has it introduced me to new friends, but it has brought me back in contact with old ones. It has also given me the chance to be re-introduced to old colleagues and classmates that I had... Continue reading

When I was a kid, there were these bacon flavored crackers my mom would buy every once in a while. I loved them so much. I would steal the box so my sister couldn't get any of them. Then I would eat them all from the privacy of the back... Continue reading

I was recently sent some feta cheese spreads from Uniquely Greek to review. I was not compensated otherwise for this post. All opinions are my own. Now, I know this might go against some sort of unwritten law of etiquette about being proper and reserved and waiting until the right... Continue reading

I think a cream sauce would be awesome! The butterier the better.

Melinda, I made them yesterday with a couple porcini mushrooms mixed in because I found them in the back of the freezer! They were sooo good!

I think I just came up with a new word: wontonioli. I Googled it and nothing came up, so it MUST be new, right? (Just humor me, ok?) You're probably wondering what it means. Well, it's my new fancy name for raviolis made out of wonton wrappers - which are... Continue reading

We can't stop you from thinking of every possible horrible nickname your kid will endure no matter what you name him, but we can help with almost everything else.
Over the summer, my husband took me to the Muscle Maker Grill. I fell in love with their cheeseburger salad. I know, I know... it sounds weird. But it is delicious! They somehow took the essence of greasy burger and made it into a healthier salad and it rocks. I... Continue reading

If I were your age, my sweet daughter, would we be friends? Would you sit next to me at the lunch table? Or pass notes in class? Would we sleep over each other's houses on Friday nights and giggle well after our parents told us to quiet down? Or would... Continue reading

Thank you so much Jeanine!
I always see wonton wrappers in the grocery store and never buy them. I've eaten about 325 million wonton wrappers in my lifetime, but never ever cooked one for myself. Why? I don't really know. But I can tell you that after I finally DID buy some today and used... Continue reading

I was just going through to see if I had any old, unpublished posts on here that I could work on finishing today. As it turns out, I don't think I want to finish any of them. And I don't want to leave them sitting there all alone by themselves... Continue reading

Even after being a part of an awesome game day party food link-up with my blogging friends, I STILL woke up on the day of the Big Game without having shopped for ingredients. We had a game watching party to go to later in the day, but also had a... Continue reading
