{The Help. The Dream. The Beer.}

For the past two years of my unemployment, I’ve been asking my hubby to take a day off from work to hang out with me. Quite the worker bee, he never obliged. No use of us both sitting at home not working, lol! And I understood–with me not working and finances being quite uncertain at …

DC Bound…AGAIN!

Yesssss, I did just go to DC a mere 13 days ago for my sister’s wedding. I feel like a jetsetter. Except I’m not wealthy. And I’m not flying. And I’m not going anywhere that fashionable. So I guess I’m more like a roadtripper. ūüėČ In a few short hours, probably while some of you …
