    Today, I want to talk about belts and mouse ears. Toby and I had been planning to go to Disneyland for Valentine’s Day, but a bunch of work things came up, and we weren’t able to go. Work (his and mine) kept getting in the way every weekend since, but we finally made it to see […]

  • Garden of the Gods

    Even though I’ve had the opportunity to travel to some really awesome places for work, I don’t usually have much free time in the places I visit. Sometimes, I don’t even have time to eat a proper meal! But even when my schedule is packed, I try to make a little time to get out and explore […]

  • Where to eat in Las Vegas

    According to movies and TV, Las Vegas is all about drinking, gambling, waking up with a tiger in your bathroom and marrying people you’ve known for less than 12 hours.

    I’ve been a Britney fan since her chunky heel-tapping, pigtail- and thigh-high-wearing, basketball-hugging days, when the “…Baby One More Time” video was on near-constant repeat on “The Box” — a music video channel we got in the dorms. The summer after I graduated from college, my fellow interns and I would play the “Britney” album on […]

  • Babydoll

    Last weekend I took an epic trip to Las Vegas with some of my college friends to see Britney Spears… and that meant I had to go on a bit of a shopping spree, since I didn’t have anything very Vegas-y laying around. And while I was buying up all the sparkle in the San […]

  • Slow cooker Buffalo chicken

    A couple of years ago, every party we went to had the same dip. I’m pretty sure it was related to the beginnings of Pinterest, but for whatever reason, it seemed like Buffalo chicken dip was taking over the world. I have never liked Buffalo sauce, and canned chicken grosses me out, so I never tasted […]
