Rabbit Food

Vegan. The world makes me angry, confused, sad. How can people eat vegan when things like this exist: or this: I have never understood why people would put themselves through the torcher of avoiding such delicious foods. Vegetarianism I can kind of get, but not eating dairy products? What?? It’s not like it’s hurting the…

Bath Salts and Barbecue Sauce

Often times while standing in the line at the grocery store, I watch the cashier with an envious eye. I have no desire to stand in one spot for 8 hours while scanning and bagging food, but I do love the idea of getting to see what everyone is buying. I’ll admit it, I’m pretty…

The Obligatory “After Being Freshly Pressed” Post

On Thursday I received the email letting me know that I was being “Freshly Pressed.” At first I thought it was a joke, but since the sender was “wordpress editor”  it seemed pretty legit. Then I thought “maybe they accidentally sent it to the wrong person?” [Not because I don’t have faith in my writing,…

Interactions With the General Public

How would you like your steak cooked? Medium. Okay that will be a hot pink center. Oh no no no, I don’t like any pink or red in it. Okay, then I recommend well done. No, I don’t like it cooked well done. Cook it to medium well. That will have a slight pink center.…

Why Gluten-Free Is For Me

Today marks the 127th day (4 months) that I have been gluten-free. I have cheated a few times, giving in to Mellow Mushroom pizza twice and Wheat Thins a few other times, but overall have been really careful about not ingesting it. The funny part is, I wasn’t completely on board with the whole gluten…

Have Your Cake, And Eat Your Card Too

Dear USA, You know I will always love you (true BFF’s), but sometimes you really worry me. I consider myself to be an open-minded person so I have learned to accept things like macaroni and cheese pizza and chicken sandwiches made with two giant pieces of fried chicken where the bread should be. The beautiful…

High Maintenance Traveler

For the past few months, Isaac and I have been trying to figure out where we should go on our Honeymoon in March. Friends, strangers, family members, and coworkers have been urging us to go to Europe, Belize, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, you name it! Alaska and Colorado were even briefly talked…

I Think You Dropped Something

A few years ago on a warm summer night, I headed to a frozen yogurt shop in Tampa to do two of my favorite things: stuff my face with froyo and people watch. I’ve lived all the way from the Florida Keys to California and I must say, Floridians are some of the most interesting…

Bad Ideas During (Extra) Emotional Times

1. Go on a 2-hour mission to find the song that you and your dad will dance to at your wedding 2. Make a big cookie cake knowing full well that you will not have the self control to eat “just a little bit of it” 3. Watch sappy animal videos. Especially the ones where…

A New Long Term Goal

I have a new long term goal, one that is sure to please my soon-to-be husband. My goal is to remain active, toned, and physically fit my entire life. This goal was recently spurred by people I encounter every week who make comments to me like “look how little you are, must be nice to…
