Just in the past week I've seen four interviews in which people have stated: a) They've "given 110%" b) Their "life has changed 150%" c) "It takes 110% to get the job done" d) "Those guys go out there and always give 110%" I'm not just now noticing this phenomenon.... Continue reading

I needed a chocolate fix on Saturday, and chocolate chip cookies always fit the bill. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, though, are just a little more special. I love the heartiness (is that a word?) of oatmeal cookies, but since Jared refuses to eat oatmeal raisin cookies, we have to compromise.... Continue reading

I'm sure by now most of us have seen pictures of the devastation caused by tornadoes in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee (sorry if I've missed a state. I'm going off the top of my head here). If you haven't, look here. If you are unable to donate directly to... Continue reading

Well, it's Sunday and little man is sick, so I have officially turned into his pillow. This means I'm stuck on the couch until he wakes up, which might not be until 2:00. BUT this does mean that I am about to share with you one of the best desserts... Continue reading

My older sister Michelle and her teenage daughter raved about the ELF makeup line for about a year before I listened to them. Then at Thanksgiving I finally got around to looking at their website, and it was magical. Eyeshadow for $3. Bronzer for $3. Eyeliner for $1? Yessssssssss please.... Continue reading

Today I will share the Beast with the world. The Beast loves eating pizza, pulling down DVDs, and trying to stick forks into electrical outlets. It looks like he's dirty in this picture (which he is a lot of the time) but that's actually lipstick residue from his aunt. In... Continue reading

I love old photographs. As wonderful as high quality digital images are these days, there's something about grainy look that photos had even just 30 years ago that seems to have more character. Ironically, this same quality freaks my twin brother out--to the point that pictures from the early 20th... Continue reading

My friend Kristen made a very insightful comment on her Easter post today. She pointed out that the "Reese's Egg is far superior to the normal Reese's cup." This is true, of course, and I'll tell you why. Look at the picture below: See the edge? Those seemingly harmless ridges... Continue reading

I love movies. No, really, I do. One of my favorite games to play is "the movie quote game," in which someone says a line and I have to guess what movie it's from. Fun, right? Not all 80s movies can be Rocky IV, though (you know it's classic). No,... Continue reading

Has anyone seen the TLC show Extreme Couponing? I caught a glimpse of it a couple of weeks ago while I was at my sister's house, and it reminded me a little of Hoarders. I'm all for saving money, but it made little sense why someone would buy 50 bottles... Continue reading

I've been thinking quite a bit about what my first blog post should be about, delaying it for a few weeks now. Nothing has seemed worthy enough to post, until I realized I can write about the greatest of all Seinfeld themes...Nothing! The problem is that I have too many... Continue reading
