Mormons & Polygamy
Ok so I have an OBSESSION with HBO’s Big Love and I just finished watching season 4. And from this, I’d like to admit that I have an even unhealthier obsession with Mormons and polygamy (not necessarily mutually exclusive though). So. Mormons… According to lds.org, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the fourth-largest religious institution in America, with...

Recipe - Jalapeno Shrimp
Cooking is among one of the numerous things in life that I have little to no experience with. I mean I know how to read a recipe and all but don’t ask me what the hell a squash looks like or let alone how to prepare it. So the other day I bought a bag of frozen shrimp and it had a half decent recipe on it with a lot of ingredients that I had at home. So here it is: Ingredients: 2...
Life without cable
Maybe about a month back I took an inventory of my bills and my “Friends” filled DVR, and realized that I wasn’t watching enough cable or using my DVR efficiently enough to make it worth the amount that I was paying for it. So here I am, without cable. And on what feels like my 856 episode of Sex and the City. I finally decided that I should attempt to pick up the local...
Child birth →
My good friend Lauren had her first child on March 15 and I had planned to do a blog based on me watching a YouTube child birth (because, of course, there are people out there in the world who have given birth, recorded it, and uploaded it for all of our viewing pleasures). So i googled. And I can’t bring myself to do it. I just can’t. So if you have more balls than me, please take...
St Patrick's Day
This past weekend I attempted to explain to my 6 year old sister what St. Patrick’s Day was and why it was celebrated. Not knowing much more than it was a day of green beer and binge drinking, we both walked away from my terrible explanation thinking that all white people are Irish. And here is how that went: Little sister: What is St Patrick’s Day? Me: It’s a day that Irish...
Meat Lover - NYC Subletting Horror Story →
This is one of the craziest things I think I have ever read. I can’t find the technical term for this type of disorder (once you read it you will understand what I’m talking about), but my friend Brandi said it should be called sickfuckerobia and I’m sticking with that.
The truth about red velvet cake
Tonight the bff made red velvet cake to go with our dinner, which led to this post. (ps we made ice cream sandwiches with 2 slices of red velvet cake, vanilla ice cream in the middle, and butter cream frosting on the top. it was awwwwwwesome). Anyways…. A few years back I discovered my love for red velvet cake. Legit in love. Its just so damn good. UNTIL someone ripped my heart out and...
Worse v. Worst →
…because, for the life of me, I can never figure out which one to use. (and I’m still not 100% sure)
...and it begins

Hair Tinsel →
So as I was getting my hair did this evening, a lady walked by with some sort of glitter stuff in her hair. I must have made a face at it because my hair stylist proceeded to explain. Apparently, one of those classy broads on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had hair tinsel in her hair and now its all the rage. Personally, I will not be taking part in any tinseling of the hair. I think it...
I have been going through (and continue) a religious journey over the past few years. I was baptized Catholic but thanks to my heathen parents, I never really practiced it during my youth. With that said, I have gotten to a point in life where i am happy to embrace Lenten season each year. And with that comes the return of No Meat Fridays! Lent is a major event and tradition of the Catholic...
According to americancatholic.org, Mardi Gras literally means “Fat Tuesday” in French. The name comes from the tradition of slaughtering and feasting upon a fattened calf on the last day of Carnival. The day is also known as Shrove Tuesday (from “to shrive,” or hear confessions), Pancake Tuesday and fetter Dienstag. The custom of making pancakes comes from the need to use...
How the hell does this work??
I’ve found over the past few years that I don’t really know much about anything outside of my little bubble. So with this blog, I hope to educate myself and those who read it with everyday things that all people should know….and that I have chosen to go through life ignoring, to this point. I’ll be blogging (or whatever the kids call it) about everything from sports,...
