A Real Love Story

Fair warning, this is not one of my typical blog postings. Something this special could not be ignored. There are people who don’t believe in true love. I am not one of those people. I came across this video today and quickly realized it embodies every ounce of what I believe to be the core of a real relationship and … (Read More)

Pinterest Easter Wreath: So easy even I can do it

I have a category on my site called ‘Diary of the Domestically “Challenged”‘. It is quite fitting because I once put dish soap in the dishwasher and flooded my parents kitchen with bubbles. They were out of town. If I forgot to mention it before, sorry Mom and Dad (I was 18, don’t judge). Recently (at the age of 29), … (Read More)

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn: Officially a Couple

Lazy TV News Writing

I am currently on the job hunt here in Miami, Florida. This so-called ‘downtime’ has allowed me to test out my domestic skills (i.e. cooking & cleaning), hang out with my cat, spend hours on the computer and watch A LOT of news. I’ve scanned all of the local TV stations (WFOR, WSVN, WTVJ and WPLG) I’ve also watched entirely … (Read More)

Roddick: This is going to be my last tournament

Andy Roddick says he’s done after the U.S. Open. This isn’t welcome news in my household. Andy told reporters late today, he was holding a press conference to celebrate his 30th birthday. When they showed up the message was very different: “I have decided that this is going to be my last tournament,” Roddick said. “I don’t know if I’m … (Read More)
