Who needs a delicious mid-week pick-me-up?! My fiancé and I are in the midst of moving (hence the blog post hiatus), so I find myself counting down the days to this weekend when we are moved in and (hopefully) able to kick back and relax with our favorite cocktail. It’s a lil smoky and a lil sweet, making it equally perfect for cozy indoor cocktails and poolside sipping. To top it off, it’s simple to make. It is the Mezcal MaRG.
I think we can all agree that this year has been a pretty stressful one. When quarantine started back in March and reality set in that we were going to be locked in for a while, my anxiety levels went through the roof. I will admit – I even went through a panic attack wherein I was convinced that the world was ending. I was in desperate need of a positive distraction. And so the Corona Crawl was born…
Puppies Make Me Happy makes me so ridiculously happy. And since it’s International Dog Day, I’ve got to brag on them.
I’ll admit it – I’ve been slacking on the blog post front. But for good reason! Last week, Ryan and I made a trip to the beach for his birthday. Little did I know that he had other plans for us. He asked me the easiest and most special question in the world… and I said yes!
During quarantine, I’ve discovered a lot of things about myself. I like to make checklists to maintain some semblance of productivity. I don’t hate the Marvel movies. I can go a week without washing my hair. And I love paint by numbers (or – as I affectionately call it – “PBN”). I have to giveContinue reading “Crafty Nonsense: PBN”
Aaaahh Bagel Balls… my go-to food of quarantine. The delightful taste has become synonymous with working from home, a delicious escape in between WebEx meetings. They’re simple to make, and they’re simply scrumptious. To the point where I make them 3-4 times a week. Creature of habit? I know what I like. This recipe isContinue reading “Yum Nonsense: Air Fryer Bagel Balls”
I often find myself reflecting on the simpler times Before Corona Era (BCE)… hugs, smiling faces, live music, sporting events, high fives. There are a lot of things that we are obviously missing these days as we keep our distance and do whatever we can to minimize the spread of this terrifying virus. But I am not going to write about those things. Instead, I am going to write about the BCE nonsense. The little things that you don’t necessarily think about every day, but there’s a painful sting when you realize their absence.
Over the past few months, we’ve made some awesome purchases that make life more efficient and/or entertaining. The first one that I am going to share is our little red wagon. Simple, classic, but also magical. We initially shopped the interwebs looking for a wagon that we could use to transport Ryan’s weight set fromContinue reading “Recommended Nonsense: The Waggin’ Wagon”
Disclaimer: this blog will have a good bit of content about two very prominent characters in my life story. Affectionately dubbed the B’s, the girls, BohzNBarks. Our rescue pups Bohzie and Barklee.
When quarantine started, my mind raced in a billion different directions. Nobody has a guidebook on a pandemic, a roadmap for where this will take us and how long it will last. So my first response was panic. I stocked up on canned goods and cleaning products. I scoured online news articles for predictions and answers. I asked my boyfriend Ryan at least three times a day… “Is the world ending?!”
Then I took a few deep breaths. And I turned to my trusty creative therapy outlet that has gotten me through a plethora of low points over the years: collaging. In high school, I started cutting up magazines for images, colors, and fonts that I then pieced together into unique creations.
