Review: The Chinese Takeout Cookbook

Recently we were drawn to one of our favorite cookbooks. We made recipes from it for nearly a month. The book? The Chinese Takeout Cookbook by Diana Kuan. I found it years ago while browsing her blog, ended up buying it, and haven't regretted it since. That was June 2013 and since then we've had so many delicious…

Reel Goals

Have you ever given yourself a goal so outlandish that when you tell people they look at you like you're crazy? A goal that is so random that no one would ask you follow up question? I think we all have given ourselves a goal like that at one time. Mine was to watch every…

Getting Your Shit Together aka How to Organize

Organizing is a passion of mine. It focuses my mind and calms me. I've been told this is weird but I don't give a shit. Everyone should do what makes them happy and organizing does that for me. So when one of our kitchen drawers became overrun by crazy (you know the drawer) it was…

Don’t Get Caught Looking at Your Shoes*

When you realize it's time to retire a favorite pair of shoes it makes you reflect on everything those shoes have been through ... err ... everything that you've been through. This particular pair of gray Chucks have been to all but one or two concerts since 2014. I've put some serious miles on these babies too. They've…

Take it Down to Project Town

Sometime in the middle of March my phone's screen broke. It broke so hard that the touchscreen was messed up rendering it useless. The bright side of being without a cell phone for a few days is that it allows you to disconnect and tackle projects that you've been meaning to do for a while.…

Location, Location, Location

Last month was my first time travelling internationally. Needless to say, I was nervous. Mainly about forgetting my passport but also because I had no idea what the process was going to be like (because there's no such thing as the Internet). After we arrived at the airport my nervousness went away and I was…

Review: Thug Kitchen

Last year I gutted our cookbook collection of ones I haven't cracked open since college. We had no need to know how to make a jell-o mold or cook an entire meal using a microwave. Most of the books were from the 70's and 80's and were outdated. I resolved to keep our cookbook collection relevant…

What’s Your Damage?

It's been months at this point since my husband and I saw Heathers: The Musical. If you have no idea what Heathers is, like my husband, you're missing out. It's your quintessential 80's, mean girl, high school movie and is amazing. The fact that someone turned it into a musical is fucking genius. As I explained to…
