Movie Review: Austenland

      No Comments on Movie Review: Austenland

At BlogHer13, I was lucky enough to see a special screening of Austenland. Being a fan of Jane Austen, I was so excited to see this movie. First of all, the reason I enjoyed this movie was Jennifer Coolidge. She has some great ridiculous lines. The movie is pretty much a chick flick, but you kind of know that going… Read more »

Trying not to be THAT woman

      No Comments on Trying not to be THAT woman

My boyfriend is out of town for the week and while I find myself really missing him, I’m trying not to be that woman…you know, the one who tells everyone that she can’t sleep at night because her significant other is gone for a day. Roll your eyes…I did. And you know what else? Single people love to hear that… Read more »

Equality for all: Single does not equal broken

In light of the recent developments in marriage equality, I’d like to address the concerns of single people. There’s nothing wrong with you. There’s nothing wrong with being single.

A week and a half ago, I went to my first Twins Game.  I love baseball.  Going to a game is also a pretty great date.  Why?  It’s a great combination of factors. It has sports which most men (and some women like me) enjoy. It’s usually outside, so you get fresh air and sunshine (unless it rains or you… Read more »

Of Birthdays and Happiness

      1 Comment on Of Birthdays and Happiness

Today, is my birthday. It’s pretty much the best birthday ever. I just wish it didn’t take 39 years to happen. However, I am NOT complaining. Yes, I’m in my last year of my 30s. I remember when I turned 30. I celebrated in Vegas with my family. It was a pretty good birthday, but not the best. It was… Read more »

Big Relationship Step: Meeting the Parents

In this day and age of seemingly few relationship traditions, why is meeting the parents still such a big deal? I’m a grown up who makes my own destiny, right? Because family (however it manifests in your life) is important. I have heard too many people complain about crazy in-laws only to see their relationships suffer because of it. I… Read more »
