I have had to hide the Halloween candy from myself. And yes, I am slightly ashamed to admit that.
Look, it’s not like I didn’t try to avoid buying Halloween candy until the very last minute. I did try that. But do you know how difficult it is to shop anywhere in October and not buy [...]

I’m very grumpy today. I think it might have to do with the fact that I have been having, deep, serious arguments with Bridezilla about the Real Housewives of New Jersey. In a nutshell, Bridezilla believes that while all the women are idiots, Teresa is the biggest idiot. I don’t agree. I believe Melissa is [...]

Attack of my evil tomatoes

My house has been overrun by tomatoes. I swear to you, they are everywhere. They are in the fridge. They are on the counter. They are in the freezer.

Turns out it’s Wednesday…

So today I woke up and I was so happy. First, the alarm barely went off next to my head. Next it was Friday. Yay! I turned to Harry, snuggled in and said, “Ooh, it’s Friday. Aren’t you glad the week is almost over?”
