A Bunch of Randoms

Another work week bites the dust, y’all! :-) It’s kind of awesome to be home all weekend. After Food Blog Forum, our mini-anniversary trip and an impromptu drive down to New Orleans, it’s strange to have a calm, quiet weekend.


As you may know, I’m an introvert. Food Blog Forum drained me (I’m totally OK with it, though!):-P. While I had a blast meeting people, I definitely appreciated the little me time I had in the evenings before I fell asleep. If you feel the same way, this is gonna make you nod your head until you feel like a bobble head. Especially 8, 17 & 19. Definitely me.


In our veggie garden adventures, I have learned something interesting about pumpkins. Usually, veggies flower and make fruit. It’s easy.

Nope! Not always!

With pumpkins, there are male flowers and female flowers. So, you may have a pumpkin vine full of happy flowers, but if they’re all male flowers, you get no pumpkins. This was something I learned last year, and I thought it was because I’m a rotten gardener. After some googling, I learned that if you don’t have bees doing the pollinating for you, you have to do it yourself. Maybe my mind is in the gutter, but man…that’s…um…awkward. Hand pollination = flower sexy time essentially. So yeah…we’ll see how that works out. I just want some darn Jack O’ Lanterns for our front yard decor in October. If I have to do the pollination myself, then I guess that’s what I’ll have to do. Will some Marvin Gaye help in this situation LOL? (Sorry…I’m not sorry.)




This treat is gonna be my best friend this summer. I just know it. Holy humidity….we get used to this stuff every year? Yuck.


I miss The Office. I thought the finale was perfection. The writers wrapped it up beautifully…I’m just so bummed to see it go.

A while back, I joined a BzzAgent campaign for CoverGirl Outlast 3 in 1 Foundation. I was skeptical, because I’ve never had luck with CoverGirl’s shades. I’m pale as heck, and their palest color was still too dark (this was back in college). I joined the campaign though, because I’ve heard wonderful things about this foundation. I picked up “Classic Ivory”…”Ivory” is too pink for my skin), and applied it. I set my foundation with silica powder spheres (as recommended in this seriously AMAZING make-up tutorial by Mrs. Rainbow, who now blogs here). That was it. No primer…no added moisturizer…I tested it as a true 3 in 1 foundation. I think I’m in love with this stuff….it’s less than $15/bottle (which is CHEAP considering I pay $40 for my normal foundation) and lasted pretty well throughout the day. Here’s the comparison from 6am to 4pm on an average work day….while it all didn’t stay put, I’m surprised by how much did!

Have a great weekend everyone!
