3 Things: 4th of July

3 Things: 4th of July

The 4th of July, our nation's Independence Day--is this upcoming Monday and I am prepping for a long weekend of day drinking and grilled meats. I am a woman of simple pleasures. And I'm pretty sure that if Ben Franklin were still alive he would wholeheartedly approve of my plans to celebrate. That being said, another 4th of July tradition…
3 Things: Camping

3 Things: Camping

I have a romanticized idea of camping. In theory, it sounds like a lot of fun. You, the great outdoors, roasting marshmallows and hot dogs over an open fire. Eating your body weight in s'mores. Sleeping in a sleeping bag, gazing up at the stars as you drift off to sleep. What could go wrong? I've only been camping twice…

3 Things: I heart the 90s, TV edition

3 Things: I heart the 90s, TV edition

So, it occurred to me the other day that the 90s happened SIXTEEN YEARS AGO. Yeah, sip on that one for a bit. For me, the 90s were my time to shine! Brown lipstick, peasant tops, rocking overalls and a twinset, wanting to be Drew Barrymore, Grunge music...I became an adult in the 90s. I think everyone has a soft…
3 Things: Spring Road Trip

3 Things: Spring Road Trip

photo: Stef Andrews I love a road trip and as soon as it's warm enough, I'm off. Spring is one of the better times for a road trip in New England--the tourists haven't arrived yet and everything is lush and green. Now is the time to hit popular tourist destinations like Cape Cod and Newport. Everything is pretty much open…
3 Things: Friday the 13th

3 Things: Friday the 13th

It's Friday the 13th, a day to be unlucky and a day for superstitions abound! Or it's just another Friday. It all depends on how you look at it. Thanks to the Friday the 13th movies, I pretty much can only think of Camp Crystal Lake and Jason Voorhees on Friday the 13th and I promise you that I will…
3 Things: Spring Has Sprung

3 Things: Spring Has Sprung

We're in the midst of spring, and I'm enjoying the change in my color palette. I've put away the dark and bold, and pulled out the pale and pretty. I even did my official makeup reorganization and brought out the pinks and corals. I know, exciting! My winter coats have finally been put away. Out came my cute shoes that…
3 Things: Cinco de Mayo

3 Things: Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is next week, or as I like to call it "A good reason to drink too many margaritas and double fist burritos." It's really to celebrate the Mexican army's victory over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 (Thanks, Wikipedia!). It's also one of my bff's birthdays, so I like to call it…
3 Things: April Showers Bring May Flowers

3 Things: April Showers Bring May Flowers

I'm pretty sure it's never going to stop raining. It's great for the greenery outside (Look, it even makes Stef's desert yard green!) but it is killing my morale. A little sunshine would be nice, is what I'm saying. I keep telling myself that stupid rhyme "April Showers Bring May Flowers", but I'm starting to lose hope, people. At the…
3 Things: Pets

3 Things: Pets

We here at we heart this love our pets. A lot of us treat our pets like they're our children because for many of us, they are! We baby them, we baby talk them and we spoil them rotten. My husband and I don't have kids; we have 2 dogs under 25 lbs that are perpetual babies. They're also probably…
