Foodie Friday – Mofongo Relleno

Foodie Friday – Mofongo Relleno
As you know, David and I were just in Puerto Rico. So, this week, I thought I’d share with you a wonderful local favorite we discovered while we were there. I don’t have the recipe, though I did try to get it for you, so I’ll just have to tell you about it and share pictures. Monfongo is a fried plantain-based dish. From what I understand, it’s usually made with fried green [...]

Wordless Wednesday – Castillo San Cristobal
Well, David and I made it back from our vacation in Puerto Rico and our cruise just in time for this weeks Wordless Wednesday, so, naturally, that’s what I’ll be sharing with you. I can’t wait to put a post together about our experience on each island, but, for now, I hope you will enjoy this small sampling of Castillo San Cristobal. Have a great WW and the rest of your week!

Old School Meets Social Media

Old School Meets Social Media
I read an article last month on MarketWatch that said 60% of people between the ages of 50-64 are using social media such as Facebook, and 43% of people 65 and over are using it! That’s huge. Although, at 43, I don’t fall into either of those categories, social media is very important to me. Particularly now that I’m blogging. But even before I was blogging, I was on FB and Myspace, [...]

CandyShell Smartphone Case by Speck
With the prices we pay for smartphones, it’s crazy to call them anything less than an investment. When a phone runs in excess of $700, how can it not be? When something requires replacement insurance if it’s lost, stolen, or damaged, it only makes sense to protect it much as we can. And that’s where having the perfect case for your smartphone comes in to play. Right now, I have three [...]

The Power of Imagination

The Power of Imagination
Being a middle-aged, child-free couple, we knew inviting our friends with 3 kids into our home, while they transitioned from California to Indy, would have its challenges. Aside from all of the adult issues that needed ironed out prior to their invasion, we knew our peaceful and organized little sanctuary would be overrun with lots of noise, toys, and sticky fingerprints. What we weren’t prepared [...]

Wordless Wednesday – Stars & Tall Ships

Wordless Wednesday – Stars & Tall Ships
David and I love Chicago and we love boats. So when we discovered there would be a Tall Ships Festival at Navy Pier in Chicago, we had to go. The weather was perfect all weekend and we had a wonderful day Saturday touring and learning about all of the beautiful ships. And, then, on Sunday, before heading back home, we visited the Adler Planetarium and strolled around the lake. Happy (Not-So) Wordless [...]

So, I’m not going to call myself a wino, but I’ve been trying to write this post for the last 3 days and I’ve just been too damn drunk to finish it. Okay, not really. (It was just 1 day) But(!) the wine app I’m about to tell you about is so good, it totally could have gone down that way. Meet Two Thumbs Up WineFinder Have you ever stood in the wine isle at your local grocery [...]
