Ignorance Is Most Definitely Bliss (Or Why I Love My Patio And Will Never Build One Ever Again)

It’s been awhile since I posted. I know. But I have a good excuse! Operation: New Patio literally became all-consuming. For the better part of 6 weeks, Adam and I have spent ever possible minute working on this project. (Which is crazy because we’re literally just moving rocks from one piece of ground to another. Who’da…… Continue reading Ignorance Is Most Definitely Bliss (Or Why I Love My Patio And Will Never Build One Ever Again)

Sew All The Things! (Or It’s Amazing What You Can Accomplish With Adult Supervision)

So my beginner sewing class is over and out of everything I learned, I would say two primary lessons stuck out to me the most: You are never too old for adult supervision. Even when the class isn’t graded, everyone knows who the best student was. (Hint: I was the best! Those little old ladies…… Continue reading Sew All The Things!

I Dug A Hole (Or Yard Work Is Hard And Everything Hurts)

A friend recently asked me why I haven’t included joining a gym as part of my “trying new hobbies” blog. So let me be clear, for everyone who doesn’t know me (and probably those who do as well) – I do not consider working out a hobby. Why, you may ask? BECAUSE EXERCISE IS TORTURE.…… Continue reading I Dug A Hole (Or Yard Work Is Hard And Everything Hurts)

Making Shakshuka (Or Cooking For Normal People Who Are Lazy And Work All Day)

Shakshuka (also known as eggs poached in tomatoes) is a way of cooking that makes you sound sophisticated and more worldly than you actually are. It’s my favorite because you really only need two ingredients and a pan, but Adam will still find it impressive. Bonus points if (by some miracle) you have bread in…… Continue reading Making Shakshuka (Or Cooking For Normal People Who Are Lazy And Work All Day)

Book Club Minutes: Meeting #3 (Or When Did Everyone Get So Busy?)

So one of the worst thing about being in your mid-20s is that everyone is suddenly so dang busy! Now I assume that people are busy at other ages too but since I’ve only been around for 27 years, I can only speak to those 27 and personally, this is the busiest I’ve ever been.…… Continue reading Book Club Minutes: Meeting #3 (Or When Did Everyone Get So Busy?)

Sewing For Newbies (Or Why You Should Just Suck It Up And Take A Class)

So you guys. The reason why I have yet again broken my “post once per week” rule (can it really be a rule if you’ve never once followed it?), is because I wanted to wait and tell you about a new adventure after I’m starting. I’m taking a sewing class! In the past, I have typically…… Continue reading Sewing For Newbies (Or Why You Should Just Suck It Up And Take A Class)

Let There Be Life (Or How To Feed Yourself And Not Kill Things)

So today we’re starting on another new adventure – gardening! Like a lot of what I write about on here, gardening isn’t exactly a new hobby. In fact, I’ve had some semblance of a garden at every place I’ve lived in since college, including my adorable little container box herb garden which was the only…… Continue reading Let There Be Life (Or How To Feed Yourself And Not Kill Things)
