Instead of Blogging

by snackface July 29, 2011 Culture

Tweet …I’ve been flogging! Kidding. I’m not exactly sure what that means. UK readers, wanna help a sista out? What I’ve really been doing for the past two nights instead of my usual routine [work --> gym --> home --> dinner --> blog -->bed] is socializing. Wednesday night I reunited with high school besties. It […]

A Diva and Her Dollars: Talking Shop

by snackface July 26, 2011 Culture

Tweet “Got a handful of stacks, better grab an umbrella/ I make it rain.” Though I chant these Weezy-graced words with confidence, I can’t stand behind them. I am 23. My job, though excellent, has a salary appropriate for a recent college graduate. (It’s been a year since graduation— can I still say recent?) People […]

Recipe Test: Fat Pancakes

by snackface July 25, 2011 Food

Tweet If you’re anything like me (and for the sake of this post, I’m banking on the fact that you are), you are damn busy. You are go-go-go from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. You work, workout, manage all your social media outlets, maybe see your friends in real life and sometimes you even eat. […]

Dog Days Are [Never] Over

by snackface July 24, 2011 Culture

Tweet Hello, sweet thangs! I have had the most relaxing weekend. I’ve been feeling extremely lethargic lately, so it was much needed. Most of my time was spent alongside MamaJ. Saturday, before we headed out, I specifically said to her, “I don’t want to shop for clothes.” In a post later this week, I’ll share […]

Cleveland (on the) Rocks

by snackface July 21, 2011 Culture

Tweet OK. So that wasn’t as challenging as I thought. You totally guessed it: Tuesday evening, I stood on the lawn of Blossom Music Center and thoroughly enjoyed what Cleveland is known for: music. Not of the rock and roll sort, but rocks were definitely involved— with some tequila, lime and salt. Mr. Margaritaville rocked […]

Midweek Weekend

by snackface July 21, 2011 SnackFace

Tweet Hi, friends! I disappeared for a hot second. I’m fairly sure none of you were concerned about that— that’s healthy/normal. I used two of my prized vacation days to enjoy a midweek weekend with DM and his family. It was awesome. I’ve traveled all over the state of Ohio this summer, and this weekend […]

24 Hours

by snackface July 17, 2011 Food

Tweet A lot or a little can happen in 24 hours. For this chiquita, not too much has happened, as I’ve been feeling under the weather. That’s a euphemism for: “for seven days straight I’ve had a damn headache and earache and I can’t figure out how the hell to get rid of it.” But […]

What I Ate {Week}

by snackface July 16, 2011 Food

Tweet Hi, kittens! Happy weekend! You know, I try not to stick too closely to a posting schedule, but I feel terrible about posting only three times this week. My excuses are that work has been crazy, I’m busy until 9 p.m., and then, when I have time to post, I’m too tired! Most weeks […]

The Older Sister I Never Had: Tall Tales

by snackface July 13, 2011 The Older Sister I Never Had

Tweet A dear reader approached me with a close-to-my-heart topic that I simply cannot resist. We’ll call the reader Clarissa. She sent me the following email: “My older sister is SUPER self-conscious about her height. She’s 5’9” 1/2 (it’s really not that tall…) and she absolutely hates it. She’s not big either; she is actually […]

13 Things on the 13th

by snackface July 13, 2011 Uncategorized

Tweet Hi, buttons! Thank you for the darling comments on my mini vacation slideshow. It was a blast of a weekend that still has me exhausted. I’ll learn how to sleep someday. It’s already the 13th of July (I know, I know— people say “I can’t believe it’s ______ already!” but it’s true). Let’s talk […]
