The best way to eat oatmeal for breakfast, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

I’m a breakfast lover! Big breakfasts, brunches, cold cereal, it doesn’t really matter to me. I NEED to have some breakfast in the morning to get my day going. My husband is the opposite. Give him two cups of coffee, and maybe a piece of fruit around 10:30, and he’ll be set until lunchtime. IContinue reading “The best way to eat oatmeal for breakfast, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

I was writing a post about virginity but…, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

I started this week by putting together an entire post about virginity. Inspired by the return of The Bachelor and my weekly get together night with my wine and reality TV loving ladies, I had more than a few things to say about the series’ obsession with the fact that this season’s lead is a good-looking,Continue reading “I was writing a post about virginity but…, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

8 words I wish we had in English, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Earlier this week, I wrote about hygge, the Danish art of enjoying the cozy, comfortable and intimate feeling of a perfect moment. Hygge is difficult to define in English because it takes about a dozen words to attempt to recreate the sentiment…and even then it’s still not an exact match. I’m fascinated with language translation,Continue reading “8 words I wish we had in English, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

Fast, “fancy” appetizers, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Appetizers are one of my favorite things. That is, perhaps, misleading. Appetizers in a restaurant are often, I feel, named incorrectly. For example, if you’re going to plow through 2,000 calories in beer battered cheese curds before your meal (and I’m not judging if this is you!), then you probably shouldn’t call that an “appetizer.”Continue reading “Fast, “fancy” appetizers, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

The last post of 2019, Friday kudos, wine for your New Year’s Eve!

We interrupt this holiday bog hiatus for a final post of 2018. One more chance to kudos the good, drink to the great, and think through those things that maybe could have gone better, all in the name of living our best lives in the new year ahead! Are you a resolution maker? I tendContinue reading “The last post of 2019, Friday kudos, wine for your New Year’s Eve!”

I found the unicorn of wine websites…and now it’s gone, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Earlier this year, I stumbled across the most brilliant website for pairing wines with meals. It allowed you to input your meal ingredients, spice preferences, and usual wine preferences, and then suggested three to five bottles of wine for your meal. It did not just suggest varieties, but actual brands, labels, and vintages. It alsoContinue reading “I found the unicorn of wine websites…and now it’s gone, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

A December reset, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Anybody else feel like they need to push the reset button at the start of December? I love the stretch from Thanksgiving to Christmas, but this November has left me feeling like I’ve been dragged kicking and screaming from Halloween into the dead of winter. Remember October when it was 55 degrees, and the leavesContinue reading “A December reset, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

Youtube playlists from people who are on top of their music game, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, and Happy Black Friday! Here at ink. there’s always a monthly playlist helping to set the scene for quiet evenings at home, busy lunch breaks, and all the other little moments I find to steal a few minutes writing. These playlists get shared, and I get the stats back to tell meContinue reading “Youtube playlists from people who are on top of their music game, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

Five things on Pinterest for #joshandkatebuildahouse, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

I skipped a Friday post last week for the first time since launching ink. and I felt badly about it. A friend, and fellow blogger, asked why I didn’t have one scheduled and ready to go, and that friend pretty much understands nothing about what my schedule looks like in the weeks leading up toContinue reading “Five things on Pinterest for #joshandkatebuildahouse, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

November playlist, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

The November Playlist!  Do not tell me you’re already pumping up the Christmas music? I love a good Christmas playlist as much as the next girl, but please do your holidays in some semblance of order. There might not be a thing as “Thanksgiving music,” but here’s a list of super chill, fall inspired instrumentalsContinue reading “November playlist, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”
