Hello 2014!

(I got this rainbow pencil from Jen, my Secret Fanta Santa. It makes everything I write super fun!) 1. Go On More Dates: Heheh. Just to clarify, I mean go on more dates with my husband, not a bunch of randos. Dean and I only went on two dates in 2013 which seems kinda lame. […]

2013 Goal Recap

This past January, I made a list of 11 goals I hoped to complete throughout the year. I got about 6.5 out of 11. Not great but I’m happy with what I accomplished. 1. Buy less plastic: Check! More specifically, my goal was to cut back on buying new, disposable plastic. Here are some small […]

Little Italy, San Diego

I’ve spent this week battling a cold, feeling tired and hideous so it seemed like a good time to reminisce about our last sunny, summer trip. Back in August, Dean and I flew down to San Diego for my cousin’s wedding (it was a beautiful ceremony on the beach!). We were only in town for […]

Taco Club for Two

Dean and I spent Thanksgiving at home in our pajamas- eating veggie tacos, drinking whiskey, and watching old made-for-TV movies. We felt like we were breaking the law (or being crummy friends) by opting for an anti-social holiday at home but sometimes it’s best to flout tradition and just take a breather. We ended up […]

Carrot Coconut Soup

A simple and satisfying soup for the increasingly chilly weather. There are dozens of soups I want to try in the coming months but this recipe on Shutterbean was at the top of my list. It is delicious! Hearty and creamy, a little sweet and spicy. I didn’t have sambal oelek which was important to […]

Fantagraphics on Kickstarter

Just in case you haven’t seen the Fantagraphics Kickstarter but want to help with a season of awesome comic books, here’s the link! There are some very cool funding options to pre-order upcoming titles or snap up all sorts of sweet cartoonist prints/paintings/mix tapes/tattoos. The smaller items I’m helping with (custom chucks) are gone but […]

Twin Peaks Brunch

Happy Halloween! This year, we celebrated with cherry pie and damn good coffee (and hot!). Kristy as Nadine Hurley, me as the Log Lady. Bwah. Kristy never hesitates to geek out with me. Such a good friend! Looking for the bathroom? Just look for Killer BOB. The next photo is Kristy’s living room after we […]


Here are the pumpkins James and I carved this year. As you can see, he carved his for real- creating a pretty amazing Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth. I was short on time so I cheated and cut out a silhouette from black poster board. It’s supposed to be the devil from Fantasia’s Night on […]
