It's strange that when you're not in a relationship, you forget what it was like to be in one. You forget the way that you would wait for the other person to get off work to eat dinner, just in case they might want to eat with you. You forget... Continue reading

Sometimes, when I'm feeling less than pleased with myself, I tend to think about a list of the nicest things that people have said to me as a way of lifting my faltering self worth. Here's my list, in no particular order: 1. " You don't say much but when... Continue reading

Here are some things I've learned in Texas: 1. Wear sunscreen. I don't know if Texas is actually closer to the sun, but it sure feels like it. 2. Texas drivers will cut you off. 3. Texas drivers will also run into you as you are backing out of a... Continue reading

The pillow on my couch smells like you. You sat here yesterday and said goodbye. We didn't even hang out that much here, but honestly I think that was because I was afraid of you. I was afraid of those long looks that I know you give to all of... Continue reading

9.1.11. I've wandered, often through thickets of redemption and I've uncovered landmines, mostly. But my soles learned to breathe on the hottest of coals and my ears turned up North in a fierce and thoughtless drove of tired, gaping holes. But the pieces, run amok, have learned to magnetize and... Continue reading

Why is that when a relationship ends, a girl feels compelled to establish a new self? Change her hair or buy new clothes, listen to different music or find a new crowd... It could be simply that her ex didn't like short hair, that the only sweater that she brought... Continue reading

Why do we always want what we can't (or shouldn't) have? Why are the best things in life so bad for us? Why are the people who make us feel like we're worth a damn also the same people who make us feel worthless? If it all started with Eve... Continue reading

I read this on the same blog. It's super funny! You Should Date an Illiterate Girl by Charles Warnke ----- Date a girl who doesn’t read. Find her in the weary squalor of a Midwestern bar. Find her in the smoke, drunken sweat, and varicolored light of an upscale nightclub.... Continue reading

Sprinkles!!! Sprinkles cupcake bakery in Beverly Hills started the cupcake craze and is still the best cupcake in town. We get to go every once in a while and when we do, we have to try a little slice of every flavor. They are all amazing. Everything about Sprinkles is... Continue reading

The same day that I posted about Kogi, I found that the truck was in Encino that very night! We almost missed it because I misread the website and thought that they would be there from 12 to 2, but it was actually scheduled from 10:30 to 12. If it... Continue reading

Has anyone had Kogi bar b q? It comes from a truck that roams Southern California and is apparently amazing. I've heard tell that it's a combination of Korean bar b q and tacos! The truck was spotted in Granada Hills recently, but I was at work! :( Hopefully it... Continue reading

In an attempt to recreate the magic of Sprinkles at home, we baked cupcakes with pudding! It was an experiment. I think that because we mixed the pudding before we added it to the mix, the cupcakes sorta imploded on themselves. They were still super yummy though! The homemade frosting... Continue reading

We saw three deer on our first hike, and one giant one on the second hike. We also rabbits and a lot of squirrels and lizards. There was some fishing, but I think that story belongs on an episode of Oprah, not this blog. :)

Since the beach and the bonfire didn't quite pan out, we made s'mores over the bar b q. But of course, no ordinary s'mores would do. These puppies pack a punch. All the fixin's.

When it's too hot to turn on the oven, these cookies are a delicious alternative to the more traditional chocolate chip. The ingredients are fairly simple, and the prep time couldn't be better. We made two batches yesterday, and they're already gone! What you need: 3 c. oatmeal 1/4 c.... Continue reading
