3 Things: Holiday Blues

3 Things: Holiday Blues

Christmas is in a few weeks and I have a confession to make: I kind of hate the holidays. Hate is such a strong word...how about intensely dislike? They weren't particularly stellar growing up, my dad died earlier this year, the rest of my family is a dysfunctional clusterf*ck and if I could push a fast forward button and skip…
Owe or Owed? Square Cash has you covered

Owe or Owed? Square Cash has you covered

Has this ever happened to you? You're going shopping with friends and you know EXACTLY what you need. In an attempt to keep a budget, you bring just the cash for said item and, because you're smart, you even leave your credit card at home. You go to the store, you buy what you came for...then you see something else…
3 Things: Thanksgiving Edition

3 Things: Thanksgiving Edition

Well, the holiday season is upon us and next week is Thanksgiving! It's a time for family and a level of gluttony that is kind of alarming. The hubby and I live 10 hours from our nearest family, so we usually travel for Thanksgiving. Last year we spent it in Iceland, which was all kinds of magical. Freezing cold, but…
3 Things: Zombie Apocalypse

3 Things: Zombie Apocalypse

The Walking Dead is back with season 7 and every time I watch it, I am hit with the question: What would I do in the event of a zombie apocalypse (or other natural disaster)? The hubby and I are fairly rural, so our chances of survival are decent. We have a generator, well water and a stockpile of canned…
3 Things: Holiday Wishlist

3 Things: Holiday Wishlist

Most beauty brands have released their holiday makeup collections and I am having such a hard time narrowing down what I want under the tree this year. I've been on a beauty buying binge for the last few months (seriously, Chanel and NARS need to quit releasing amazing collections), so I have to really narrow down what makes the cut…
3 Things: I Want Candy!

3 Things: I Want Candy!

There's a bowl of Halloween candy sitting on my coffee table right now. It's been slowly/not so slowly dwindling since early September. It may or may not have been refilled twice since we originally filled said bowl. The best part about this bowl of Halloween candy? We don't get trick-or-treaters at our house! Zero. Zilch. None. Don't you judge me!…
3 Things: So many activities (fall edition)

3 Things: So many activities (fall edition)

I freaking love that scene from "Step Brothers" when they're talking about making bunk beds and how they can do "so many activities". Now when my husband and I are figuring out what we want to do over the weekend, we always phrase it like, "We can do so many activities..." in our best Will Ferrell voice. We have an…
3 Things: Back to School

3 Things: Back to School

(That's our editor-in-chief Stef above, who was told on her report cards that she talks to her neighbors too much and is easily distracted. Nothing has changed.) I don't have any kids, but it's that time of year when the kiddos go back to school. I'm super relieved I don't have to bankrupt myself in order to afford all the…
3 Things: Labor Day Weekend

3 Things: Labor Day Weekend

While summer is not technically over until the end of September, it's unofficially over this weekend. Gee, thanks, Labor Day, way to ruin it! Anyhoo, this weekend is the last hurrah for many of us for beach days and cookouts, and I want to hear all about your amazing plans, which leads us to this week's 3 Things... 1. What…
3 Things: Summer Weddings

3 Things: Summer Weddings

I think I've finally hit that age where all of my friends have either gotten married, given up or would only elope, so I haven't been to a summer wedding in years now. I know they're expensive to attend, but there was a few years there were you could count on some great food and some drunken dance moves by…
