3 Things: Cupid, Draw Back Your Bow

3 Things: Cupid, Draw Back Your Bow

Valentine's Day is just days away. And while I'm a fan of treating my husband with love and adoration 24/7, 365 days a year, I do still observe Valentine's Day. We usually get each other small, goofy gifts that will make the other person laugh, nothing too crazy or expensive. Literally, just a token of esteem. We NEVER go out…
3 Things: Sick Day

3 Things: Sick Day

At the time of typing this, I haven't been sick yet this year. Knock on wood. I know it's coming because if there is something contagious going around, I'm getting it. Colds and flu LOVE me. And people with colds and flu always tend to sneeze/cough directly in my walking path when I'm in a store (Stay HOME, sick people!)…
3 Things: Old Favorites

3 Things: Old Favorites

I've been thinking about things that I love that stand the test of time, at least for me. When I love something, I'll return to it time and time again without ever getting sick of it. And when it comes to beauty items, I'll even stockpile things I love so I can delay the day when it's discontinued and I…
3 Things: Winter Wonderland

3 Things: Winter Wonderland

We're officially well into winter now and it's bitterly cold in New England (where I'm based). The snow blower is constantly at the ready and my wood stove is officially my best friend. Seriously, y'all need one! While we haven't had a huge snowstorm just yet, every year the hubby and I prepare for "The Big One." We are rural,…

photo: Nordic Visitor Let’s escort out 2016 and welcome in 2017 with a series of we heart this’ favorite time-killing game: 3 things! Join us, won't you? Call me old fashioned, but I still feel a sense of hope when the new year rolls around. And believe me, I took a beating in the “hope” department this year (haven't most…
3 Things: Goodbye 2016; Hello 2017

3 Things: Goodbye 2016; Hello 2017

This weekend we ring in the New Year and all the hope and possibility one can muster for 2017! I have to say that 2016 started out horribly for me, but there was some good throughout the year. Then there were a few more bumpy lows along the way (I cannot believe David Bowie, Prince and Carrie Fisher are gone!)…

Let’s escort out 2016 and welcome in 2017 with a series of we heart this’ favorite time-killing game: 3 things! All this week we’ll be getting our list on. Join us, won’t you? Although it totally seemed like 2016 had WAY more downs (David Bowie RIP) than ups (but hey, we're getting a lady on our $20 bill!), I get…
3 Things: Secret Santa

3 Things: Secret Santa

I'm pushing 40 and I've only been engaged in a Secret Santa situation once in my life. What made it super fun was that I worked at a place that had 5 Krista's with a K on staff. So when it was time to exchange our secret Santa gifts, I ended up with nothing because everybody assumed the Krista they…
3 Things: Here We Come A Caroling

3 Things: Here We Come A Caroling

I am fully immersed in the Hallmark Channel and their holiday movie extravaganza--seriously, it's almost 24/7 holiday movies right now. One thing that keeps sticking out to me is all the freaking caroling these characters are doing. Like, SO much caroling! I don't understand, when I was a kid, nobody ever caroled. All of my neighbors were elderly and were…
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…
