This is awkward. I don't want it to be, but it is. We've become the sort of friends that are only friends because we don't know how not to be. After 13 years it's not meaningful, it's habitual. … [Read More...]
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...]
I've been using Google earth and I like what I see.
How about you move out and sell all your stuff to me?
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...]
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...]
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...]
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...]
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...]
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...]
With Season 2 starting up ASAP, I totally fell into a YouTube worm hole reliving all Season 1's HILARIOUS episodes.
Episode 1: Brazillian Waxes and Girl Talk
Episode 2: Spanx & Skinny Jeans
Episode 3: Working Girls
Episode 4: Sex & Dirty Books with Tiffany Reisz
Episode 5: … [Read More...]
So Friday I did my own personal equivalent of the polar bear plunge, and put up the yearly photo of me in a bathing suit, nay.. a bikini, and it's become one of my favorite traditions. It's like a starter gun to my spring/summer self esteem, which needs to top off at a higher level than my … [Read More...]
We love the sun.
We love the water.
We sometimes forget to shave that one strip on the back of our legs.
And we worry like hell about what the other women at the beach think of us, because the honest to God truth is, forget the men, we judge each other the hardest. There are entire … [Read More...]
