The Dessert of all Desserts – Chocomint Freeze

You may be asking yourself – what the heck is Chocomint Freeze? I am here to tell you it is only the best thing ever invented. It’s a recipe that’s been passed down in my family, that I grew up eating and can fondly remember the taste of even though I hadn’t had it in … Continue reading

Even though it’s Monday, I still wanted to link up for Sunday Social! This is my second time doing it and I think I’m just as excited as I was the first timeĀ  because the topic is just as good. What is this amazing topic you ask? Food, glorious food. Yes, I equate taking an … Continue reading

It’s OK

There are a lot of things I’m dealing with right now so it’s nice to take a day to say “It’s OK”… That we’re moving in about 3 weeks and haven’t even started packing (or trashing…or sorting) That the thing I’m most sad about moving is no longer being able to use my custom address … Continue reading

Recent Reads

With all the extra time on my hands I have been doing a little bit more reading. I’ve read a few books for my monthly book club this year, but I’ve also read some others just for fun. I love reading on my Kindle since I can bring it anywhere (it’s perfect for the waiting … Continue reading

It’s Artomatic!

If you live in or around the DC area and have some free time today, tonight, or tomorrow, I would highly suggest checking out Artomatic 2012 in Crystal City. I had never heard of it, but on Wednesday afternoon I was invited by a friend to come meet her there. I had nothing else on … Continue reading

In Trying Times

Surround yourself with the ones you love. That’s what I’m learning. Because life is too short not to. This afternoon, we went to visit our nephew in the hospital for the first time since his accident. We were both anxious all morning. We knew it was going to be hard and no matter how much … Continue reading

I gotta get through this

Where do I begin? I guess where I left off was that I was enjoying Freedom Week (it was awesome!) and that I was planning to go to Georgia. Well we did go to Georgia. And it was perfect. The weather couldn’t have been better. We went out on the boat a lot and the … Continue reading
