That Greasy Little Spoon…You Know The One

The best part about living anywhere is that little greasy spoon place down the street. You know that place. The little Coney Island that has the best southwest omelets. Maybe it is a café that has the best vanilla lattes. Even that “breakfast only” spot that you seem to end up at at least...

Enjoy Some Sex on the Beach…Jell-O Shots!

Maybe it’s the snow outside, or perhaps it is my pale skin, but I cannot stop dreaming about beautiful summer weather. My side of the town, affectionately nicknamed “Boat Town,” is the best place to be in the summer. With Lake St. Clair just down the street, any summer day can go from nice...

Organization Tips for Apartment Living

Getting organized has always been a challenge for me. What I’ve discovered most about myself in my attempts to get it together is once something is put away (and by away I mean hidden in a drawer, file cabinet or closet), I am very likely never to look at it again. One day while...

Decorating Your Apartment…OUTSIDE!

Spring is coming, which usually means the itch for spending time in the great outdoors is creeping up in me.  Another thing I love to do when Spring arrives is to change the decor, especially outside! However, before you spice up the outside of your apartment, you may want to think about a few...

Tacos for One on Homemade Flour Tortillas

I live alone. I hate eating leftovers for a week straight. I have barely any time to myself. I am never home. I wish I had time to cook for myself and could make a decent meal! I’ve heard all of these a million times, and I’ve even thought it enough times myself. But,...

Three Kick-Butt Games for a Kick-Butt Game Night

Of course a kick-butt game night includes your awesome peeps, food, and, let’s face it, electricity. These three things I have used, partied with and had a blast with (not only my friends, but even my family!). Imagining my mom holding a Rock Band guitar and singing along to Metallica…weird?

Prior to moving into my first apartment I owned absolutely NOTHING. All I had to bring with me were my clothes, a few pieces of jewelry and my stereo, accompanied by an old box of tapes I liked to drag out every once in a while. I didn’t even have a bed. Amazingly, Art...

The Slurp: Making a Delicious, HEALTHY Smoothie

My little man has been asking me all week if we can make a slurp. While I was pretty sure I knew what he meant, it is dangerous to assume. So I asked him, “What is a slurp?” He replied, “You know. When you put vanilla yogurt and strawberries in that mixer-upper thing and...

“I Can’t Have Anything Nice”

Growing up, my Mother was the queen of guilt (I love you, Mom). She knew exactly how to arrange her words into heart-wrenching comments leaving us feeling very sorry. I never fully understood her frustration and sadness until my own children began terrorizing, I mean walking. Every piece of furniture, every candle, knickknack, picture,...
