Post image for The holiday {photos}

If it weren’t for the cold that we passed around starting Christmas Eve, I’d say this was one of the best holiday seasons yet. For one, I wasn’t stressin’ leading up to it. I made a manageable number of homemade gifts — easier-to-make scarves — instead of last year’s labor-intensive photo gifts. I started and […more]

Post image for His & Her beer reviews: Old Speckled Hen

I gave my husband an ale-vent calendar for Christmas (except there’s 12, not 24, beers). Here’s our review of the second beer in the lot. Enjoy!

Credit for the name “ale-vent” goes to my co-worker. Saw this beer advent calendar post last month and I just had to do this for the hubs!

Post image for This House Needs a Mouse {kid’s book review}

I was sent a free copy of this book from Allison for review. Thoughts and opinions are my own. Like any striving-to-be-perfect-slash-by-the-book first-time parents, we read to our son from a very early age. He seemed to like to read. He’d go back and forth to the bookshelf to get books for us to read. […more]

Post image for Book club announcement

Hey everyone! For the past few months, I’ve been sharing tweetviews, which are short and sweet reviews of books I’ve recently read.

Post image for Tweetviews – book reviews in 140 characters

We often write the way we read, which for me is short, sweet, and to the point. So, here are my thoughts on the books I’ve read in November and my ratings out of 5 stars — all in 140 characters or less. The Sibling Effect: What the Bonds Among Brothers and Sisters Reveal About […more]
