This week was the week of The Biebs. You couldn't escape the talk about the arrest if you tried... SO let's hit on that first and then move on. There's the mug shot.  He looks proud, doesn't he?  He was arrested on Jan. 23rd, for a DUI, drag racing and resisting arrest.  Apprently too he had prescription drugs that he said his mother gave … [Read more...]

Whatta Man Monday — Scandal Edition!!

scandal

Happy Monday, chickas!! Last week was our last post in our quest to crown Whatta Man of 2013.  Chris Hemsworth beat Charlie Hunnam by an overwhelming majority of votes -- apparently you girls love your Aussies. I won't lie...I'm sad.  But I guess if you don't want Charlie, that leaves more of him for me, so there's that. This week's Whatta … [Read more...]

Sadly, it was a fairly slow week in celebrityville, if you can't tell by all the attention the Bieber egg throwing incident is getting.  But let's review the few things that DID happen (including Oscar nominations, yay!!): Laura Linney gave birth to a baby boy!! Apparently she has a life outside answering her phone on … [Read more...]

The weekend is finally upon us.  January is not my most favorite month of the year, I have to say. It's cold (at least where I live).  There are no sparkly lights to look at anymore...and well.. it's January.   BUT January has brought my supermarket an abundance of Clementines. Which is kinda awesome. So why not use those guys … [Read more...]

So we've taken a lot of time off from Pop Culture over the holidays. Luckily not much happened worth talking about. So let's pick up from this week and move forward.   I was most excited about this... Gone Girl was one of my most favorite books from 2012, and I couldn't be more excited about the movie.  Plus, Ben Affleck. So … [Read more...]

A few weeks ago I went to a holiday party where we had a gift exchange... I gave a well thought out gift... the kind that you resent putting together when it's all said and done.   Because, you know what.. I'm going to be frank with you...no one likes your gift as much as you do. Everyone should bring a gift to the party, and then … [Read more...]

These cherries are NO JOKE. I mean, you might be telling jokes after you eat a couple four twelve-ish of them, because these candies DEFINITELY count as a cocktail. Bonus?  They are a great hostess gift, friend gift, neighbor gift, teacher gift... Just kidding about the teacher gift.  Unless you have an energetic child in which … [Read more...]

Holiday Gift Guide for Grandparents Header

Welcome to Day 5 of our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide!  In my opinion, I've saved the hardest group to shop for for the last day of the guide.  This one is for your parents, grandparents, aunt, uncles, etc.  I always seem to run out of ideas, and I don't want to resort to pictures of my kids or something crafty.  This crowd also generally seems to never … [Read more...]
