What I Learned and Loved in May and June

Well it’s time again for another re-cap of the last two months. Which has been insanely busy around here, even though it doesn’t show here on the blog. I realized that I only posted 8 times during the month of June. What the what!? That is a record low for me, and a sign of […]

How To Break Your Dryer in One Easy Step {Or Not}

WARNING: This stunt was performed by a professional dummy. Do not attempt at home! As humanoid people, we all make mistakes. Some of them look bad. Like when we forget to remove the tag on our new  jacket and run errands all afternoon with a tag hanging out of our armpit. Some of them smell bad. […]
