Yum Nonsense: The Mezcal MaRG

Who needs a delicious mid-week pick-me-up?! My fiancĂ© 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.

Corona Crawl Nonsense

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…

Crafty Nonsense: PBN

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”

Yum Nonsense: Air Fryer Bagel Balls

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”

BCE Nonsense: Starbucks Squatting

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.

Recommended Nonsense: The Waggin’ Wagon

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”

Corona Collage Nonsense

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.
