Adult Coloring Books

I admit it… I’m a sucker for anything that brings with it a feeling of nostalgia. Naturally, after seeing a coloring book marketed towards adults, I knew I’d eventually get one. I’d actually been wanting one since around January. I’d read that it’s super healthy for combating stress hormones in the brain. It helps you relax, lets your brain de-stress,… Read more →

Getting in the Christmas Spirit

About two weeks before Thanksgiving, it snowed for about a week in my town. It was so lovely, and it really got me excited for the holidays. I even tried to convince my husband to decorate for Christmas that early, which I’ve never done. I am usually determined to make sure to celebrate Thanksgiving before the tree comes out. However,… Read more →

Manitou Springs

There is a small town near where I live called Manitou Springs. It’s actually up in the mountains, and it gets some pretty chilly weather. Last year, they even experienced some pretty wicked floods. There were mudslides massive enough to send cars flying down empty roads. It was pretty intense. But, during the summer season, the town is a really… Read more →

Bowling Alley Shenanigans

In my home town, there isn’t much to do. There is a movie theater, a mall, and a bowling alley. So, unless you’re into the parties that go on out in random fields in the country, those are your only three options for entertainment. For me and my group of friends, we often chose the bowling alley. The mall got… Read more →

Video Games

I really miss playing video games. I used to play quite a bit when I was younger. At first, I used to play Cruisin’ in the USA. It was a racing game, and all of the tracks ran through different cities. You would start in California and end up in Washington D.C. It was really fun, and I beat the… Read more →

A Not-So-Lazy Sunday

Yesterday was actually a really good day… one of the best I’ve had in a long time. We woke up a little later than usual: around 8:30 am, so we were feeling rested. We got up, came downstairs, and had some breakfast. We started watching Dexter on Netflix, and I’ve become a huge fan. I’ve never seen an episode before,… Read more →

Bands and Music

I am a huge music person. Even as a child, I was obsessed, and I used to hoard my mom’s cassette tapes in my room. I drove her crazy, but she was glad that I had something I really enjoyed. She put me in dance, let me join marching band, and did everything she could to encourage my love. Today,… Read more →

The Aquarium

My daughter is 18 months old, and she is slowly gaining a vocabulary. One of the words she first learned, and that she uses on a regular basis, is “fish.” She sees them everywhere, and I will sometimes have to look really hard before I find the fish she is talking about. It’s so cute, and I find it adorable… Read more →

Three Truths and a Lie

In school, we often played this game as a kind of ice breaker. Some people found it annoying, but I enjoyed it. I always tried really hard to trick my classmates, especially because most of them had known me since I was five. So I’ll play it here. I’ll give you four stories. Three will be true, and one will… Read more →
