Can we talk about how annoying the phrase, “When it rains it pours” is? Like seriously! Number one, why does it have to rain in the first place, let alone pour?

Is it possible to just maybe have a light drizzle as opposed to a full on torrential down pour? Maybe with a little rainbow at the end? [Read more…]
Well, the day is here my friends. Happy Halloween. I haven’t taken a picture of Andy in his costume this year yet. I am going to take my chances and hope he doesn’t fight the hood piece.

Here we are, day three of brunch week. Is it just me or is this week dragging? Well, at least we can all plan our Mother’s Day brunches while gawking at good recipes from all these brunching bloggers. PS You won’t believe how many times I forget the l in blogger. Thank God for spell check.

My best friend’s wedding will be downtown Chicago tomorrow afternoon. I promise not to blow up Instagram with wedding pics. Well, maybe some of my makeup. This is my first time getting it professionally done.
I trust my BFF’s taste though. She is my classay friend. Sigh, I just can’t believe it. My best friend’s wedding!!! Aaaahhhh! Not in the Dermott Mulroney way. But oh man did I love that movie. Julia Roberts in her prime. I still have a crush on Dermott in that movie. [Read more…]
