According to facebook, someone should be throwing me a big party today:
(yeah, I know they probably aren’t actually both today…)
a wise person once said “write as if nobody is reading.” genuine and from the heart, i guess. me, i’m writing to my imaginary twin who is totally non-judgy, which is really important, because while i am a grammar snob (do i need a comma here?) i am no kind of punctuation snob. commas are optional when writing to my imaginary twin, and obviously, so are capital letters. s/he is ok with it. (see into the future ‘capitalization’ post which i’ll link to when I post it).
who am I? Laurie Enger Freehafer is who. More here. http://laurpheus.com/about-the-blogger/
Hefty.co (not the “hefty hefty hefty” Hefty) brings this spot-on list about motherhood. (p.s. Mom, I get it.)
1. You are the reason she has cried so much.
She cried from joy as she learned she was pregnant. She cried out of happiness when she finally held you in her hands. She wept with worry when things didn’t go your way. And with pride at every step along the way.
2. She also wants the last slice.
But of course she says she is full when she notices that you’d like to eat it. Out of sheer love for you, she gives it up. She doesn’t just give up the slice of cake, but on so much more in life.
A recent Forbes Magazine feature did some helpful legwork for anyone who might be considering retiring to a foreign country. Some day. In a future far far away. Just to get ourselves thinking, I’ve summarized their summaries, and added my not-well-thought-out reactions. Let the fantasies begin!
Thanks FoodandWine.com for tempting me, again, with a mouth-watering vegetarian recipe that “even carnivores will like.” You just know it’s delicious.

Concerned about home security while someone is knocking at your door?
1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.
2. Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier. […]
We recently succumbed to cashier pressure and signed up — paid actual money for –a B&N discount card. We haven’t calculated our break even point, but as a way to increase sales, B&N has it down. What we won’t pay for a 10% discount.
I’m due for a new NYT Sunday Crossword Omnibus. Actually, I’m re-buying ones I’ve already done because my memory is shit. I have an addiction, OK? They relax me, remove me from the day. So I went online. Look what I found! […]
“MILK that tastes like marshmallow PEEPS! Just in time for spring!!*
In fact, there are THREE different flavors!!! Chocolate Marshmallow Milk, Marshmallow Milk, and Easter Egg Nog.* (I KNOW! Egg nog for EASTER!)
Prairie Farms Dairy partnered up with Just Born, the company that makes the colorful marshmallow springtime PEEPS, to create these awesome flavored milks.*
Wouldn’t it be great to pour yourself a tall, cool, sugary glass of PEEPS-flavored milk?! Or, have someone do it for you!!”
Peep mustaches…let me know what you think!
Over the years, many of our shopping plans have turned to fantasies. It cramps my stomach a bit, but I feel ok about occasionally thinking out of my reality box. Such was the situation when the aforementioned coton de tulear owners converged upon New Hope, PA on the weekend of their outdoor Arts and Crafts show. Now, this was an extraordinary show, as New Hope itself is an artist’s community and attracts people with bucks. Not a single goose-with-gingham-bow wooden cutout to be seen. Just AMAZING stuff to drool over.
This must be one chilly drink… I think I’ll wait until summer. Then maybe I’ll have one daily for the whole month!
1 ½ ounces Malibu rum
3 tablespoons coconut cream
6 large ice cubes
Place ingredients together in a blender. Blend until smooth. Rim chilled martini glass with shredded coconut (nope!) and/or sugar (maybe.) Pour and guzzle for an exciting brain freeze!
