Here are the answers from yesterday’s 5 Truths and A Lie game. Thank you for all the comments,  I’ve been loving them all! This has been SO. MUCH. FUN.

Okay, is it wrong to say this viral break-up text made my day? My sense of humor might be a little warped, but this speaks to me. At first I thought it was funny, but, then I realized I’m pretty sure I dated a guy like this once or twice. Call me old fashioned… but […]

  I seem to be on a holiday-decoration-pillow shopping spree. Seeking comfort and expression wherever I go, I guess. Perhaps, I just need a nap. Posting everyday for a month during #NaBloPoMo will do that to you! Anyway, this pretty much says it all. The best part? It’s sparkly.     Subscribe to Blog Via […]

I picked an interesting month to take on the National Blog Post Month challenge. This happens to be an unusually busy month for me personally, with a lot of commitments weighing heavily on me, and, as usual, not enough sleep.
