Throwback 2014 Wrap-Up

Camp Photo

I stood on the gravel with bags of marshmallows in my arms. The sun was just about down and as I stood at the entrance of the pavilion, I could see the fire roaring, people dancing, corn hole matches being smack talked, honeymooners kissing, beers being cheered, selfies being snapped, and smiling. … [Read More...]

DIY Marquee Camp Letters

DIY Marquee Letters

Nothing adds a bit of pizzazz like some flashy marquee letters. Unfortunately, while Etsy offers oodles of them, they are largely out of my price range, and by my price range, I mean the amount Andy will confidently agree that I should spend on light up letters for a 4 day event. Commence project … [Read More...]

What I Wore: Summer Boho

Summer Boho Tie Dye

Sometimes I feel like I was supposed to have been born an Olsen. Like the 4th fat one, who's super excited for her sisters' successes, but has no interest in Hollywood and instead stayed home to work at a bank or something. The boho gene is strong in me. I have fun dressing up in girly dresses and … [Read More...]

Dear Homeowners…

Dear Homeowners, I've been using Google earth and I like what I see. How about you move out and sell all your stuff to me? Love, Brittany, future homeowner (Maybe? Say yes?) "That sounds creepy." Andy furrows his brow next to me at our dining room table. "It rhymes, and it's endearing." I … [Read More...]

The Death of Pregnancy License

Opening this text window feels weird, but also like home. So like weird home. Or, you know, normal home, because what home isn't weird? Anyways, here we are together, on the internet. First of all, I have book mono. It's a legitimate thing. You get it one of two ways. From open mouth kissing your … [Read More...]

Overage Drinking

We spent Easter in a family owned restaurant in Erie Michigan, and as we placed our drink orders at the bar before taking our seats - as Catholics are wont to do - I became intimidated by the requests for Manhattans and Whiskeys on the rocks and Dry Martinis, so I panicked and ordered a frozen Pina … [Read More...]

Frozen Banana Ice Cream… NOT GROSS

banana ice cream

Why on Earth was I so late on the uptake with this? Bananas? Good. Ice cream? Good. Banana Ice Cream? Cheaper than other ice cream. So apparently, you can make ice cream out of bananas. Just bananas, nothing added. They do this weird thing that when you blend them, they turn into creamy ice … [Read More...]

A Couple Days in Chinatown

dearkatejulie

My book is due today, and writing it has been mentally consuming. I'm sorry I have been absent, but I wanted to take a second to update you on where I've been, because it's been a pretty amazing month. First up, a peek at what I did while I was in New York City last week... I ate a human … [Read More...]

Dear Andy While You Sleep

dad and gi

Monday I rolled over in bed to come face to face with my little doll-faced cherub. I am keenly aware of the imaginary clock ticking above our heads, and our time of morning time girl snuggles are fleeting. I touched my finger to her warm little nose and she opened her heavy eyes, smiled softly, and … [Read More...]

Last Call Brittany Season 1 Round-Up
