featured reeces

Last November, I took a lovely road trip with my fellow Wine & Cheesy Book Club ladies to Ithaca, New York, the main purpose of which was to spend some quality fun time with a former co-worker.

Smart Is The New Cool™ – Project Mc² Dolls #GiveAway

I don’t know about you, but when I was a tween (which, by the way, wasn’t a thing when I was growing up!), I had my utopian house blue prints down to a T.  Literally.

featured masterchef

I lied a teensy tiny bit in yesterday’s post when I said that all of my TV consumption takes place via Netflix these days. I make one exception and one only: MasterChef. We no longer have an antenna on our house (and haven’t had cable or satellite since the 2012 Winter Olympics), so I’m now relegated to seeking it out online after broadcast or ...
