Debauchery, Light | 5 Things to do in Vegas if strippers aren’t your thing.

It started with a simple question. I asked my mom what she wanted to do to celebrate her 60th birthday. I thought maybe we'd get our nails done or take in a movie. I was wrong. So, so wrong. Instead, it was two single girls on a Sunday afternoon flight to Las Vegas. Because, why … Continue reading Debauchery, Light | 5 Things to do in Vegas if strippers aren’t your thing.

It's my birthday! Wheee! I honestly thought that by now I'd be the very picture of poise and grace, or at least, I would have figured out how to stop being such a spaz. Guess not....

Monday Musings: of cleaning products, a rug in a bag, and a great lady…

It's Tuesday, but that isn't alliterative with "musings" so I'm just going to pretend. Mmkay, pumpkins? 1) When I get stressed out, I clean things. Seriously, the morning after my dad died, I cleaned my entire kitchen and bathroom. I couldn't control what was happening in my life, but I could absolutely control how clean … Continue reading Monday Musings: of cleaning products, a rug in a bag, and a great lady…
