3 Things:  Super Bowl 50

3 Things: Super Bowl 50

After weeks of not watching football (I live in Patriots country and I'm a Steelers girl--we only get one or two Steelers games a season up here.), it's time for the Super Bowl! I have to admit--I'm not a big sports fan and pretty much watch the Super Bowl for the at-home tailgating and the halftime show. This Sunday, I'll…
Movie Love: Romantic Films That Aren’t Cookie Cutter

Movie Love: Romantic Films That Aren’t Cookie Cutter

Traditional rom-coms just don’t do it for me, even in the month of l'amour. Cookie cutter scripts and treacly meet-cutes? Not today, Satan. Luckily, there are a whole host of smart, bittersweet, irreverent love stories that chart their own path. Some of my favorite offbeat romance flicks include... The May-December romance: Harold and Maude If you haven’t seen this cult…
3 Things:  Winter Beauty

3 Things: Winter Beauty

I have a completely different beauty/skincare routine in the winter than I do the rest of the year. I live in New England and our winters are BRUTAL. With the heat blasting and the wood stove constantly burning, my oily skin can become painfully dry. I'm considering creating a Scrooge McDuck-ian vault in my basement and filling it with body…
3 Things:  Netflix and Chill

3 Things: Netflix and Chill

Bonus points if you got that reference... I'm in my wintery cocoon and typically only leave the house on weekends if I absolutely have to. Which means NETFLIX! I will pretty much watch any and everything, but after a while you kind of start to run out of things you would willingly choose to watch. Which brings us to this…
3 Things:  Baby, It’s Cold Outside

3 Things: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

It's the middle of January and Jack Frost has descended upon us and he is nipping at my nose...and other parts I shan't mention here. IT'S COLD! Bitterly, horribly cold. My wood stove is working overtime and at this point I think I've become more fleece than person. I'm pretty sure I heard a Yeti cry from the woods outside…
3 Things: What’s cookin’, good lookin’?

3 Things: What’s cookin’, good lookin’?

It's finally cold outside and the crockpot is pretty much just constantly on these days. Or, crockpots. I currently am in possession of two larger crockpots and two smaller ones and I don't think I can ever have enough. I am jealous of people who own those buffet crockpots with the three pots in one unit---they're living the dream, y'all.…
3 Things: Auld Lang Syne

3 Things: Auld Lang Syne

Since I write these ahead of time, as I write this I'm picturing New Year's Day me: still sitting in my pajamas. At 3 in the afternoon. Possibly still hungover. Dog reenactment of what we heart this imagines Krista looks like today... Or maybe, if I'm lucky, I'm still asleep. I can probably smell a pork roast in the crockpot,…

3 Things: Happy Holidays! Now Where’s My Flask?

Drunk History Christmas with Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey, and Eva Mendes from Funny Or Die It's here! That "most wonderful time of the year" (I'm convinced the guy that wrote those lyrics had a love of sarcasm.) As you read this, I'm hosting some of my husband's family--for several days. I imagine I'm also keeping a video journal to document…

3 Things: All I Want for Christmas Is…

(Shown above, Stef's husband's gift wrap stylings. In his defense, that metallic paper is the worst.) We're almost there, folks! Another week until Christmas and it's crunch time Have you been naughty? Have you been nice? Have you crippled yourself financially trying to shop for everyone on your list? Have you ever wanted just your 2 front teeth for Christmas?…
3 Things:  Christmas Cookies

3 Things: Christmas Cookies

It's cookie time, people! I've been eating a low carb diet for the better part of the last year and this Christmas - I'm eating ALL of the carbs. Everything in moderation, but I am super excited to bake cookies and to eat them Cookie Monster-style. Like, I'm pretty sure the only way to eat cookies is double fisted, amirite?…
