Five years ago I hosted a Pi(e) party, the nerd excuse to have a party where everything is pie because it is March 14th (3.14). It was fun (and yummy!) and I remember planning out a SUPER PI(E) PARTY for this year because it’s March 14th, 2015 (3.1415) and that’s never going to happen in my lifetime again.
But tomorrow I’m having my wisdom teeth removed and there is no way I’m having pie on Saturday.
I hope everyone else has a wonderful day full of pie and nerdiness and all that fun stuff. Meanwhile I’ll be heavily medicated, eating soup and ice cream and laying in bed with swollen cheeks.
I said I was really bad at resolutions, right?
I tried to trick myself into being better by calling them goals, by working little-by-little. But guys, February really kicked my butt.
In my defense, February is a long month for me. Yes, it's only 28 days but my organization puts on our biggest event... Read more →
Our first month of Bookish Bloggers is done and now it's time to review and discuss "Big Little Lies" by Liane Moriarty.
From the start I liked the premise of the book. The storyline was intriguing: all along you know someone dies, but you don't know who or when, how or why. I especially enjoyed the snippets... Read more →

When I woke up Saturday morning, I was in a major funk. I didn't... Read more →
The first selection for my new book club* is "Big Little Lies" by Liane Moriarty.
I chose it because her previous novel, "What Alice Forgot", was a really good read. "Big Little Lies" was released in 2014 and over the past few months I've heard a lot of positive reviews.

I know in my last post of 2014 I said I don't do resolutions and I meant that, but I did make some goals to work on and broke them into monthly themes. For January, I wanted to focus on energy (mental and physical) and I divided it into five key areas:
Get better sleep by going to bed on time.

Resolutions, which usually end up in failure, tend to make people feel worse about themselves than when they started. At least, that's what I think and this is why I usually don't do resolutions.
I don't remember at what point in 2014 I made a goal, but I think it was some point in the summer. Because... Read more →
For Christmas, Molly wanted a puppet theater.
We did research online, going back-and-forth between a few different ones and finally selected one that looked pretty fun because it had a chalkboard and several signs to put on top (puppet theater, toy store, market). It arrived, then sat in a box in our living... Read more →
