"Facts" Checking

You take the good, you take the bad,
you take them both and there you have
The Facts of Life, the Facts of Life!
Fun fact: a few years ago when Lisa Whelchel was on Survivor!, I got all nostalgic and what-not and put the 1980s-era TV series The Facts of Life on my Christmas list. I mean, come on! From 1979-1988, this show guided me on... well... the facts of life from age 9-18.

Mix Tape Shuffle: Party Playlist

So, this one time? Me and Marisa were talking about blogging and one of us is like "we should totally blog together!" and the other one was like "OH-EM-GEE yes we totally should!"

This has been like an ongoing thing for us. We'll meet up socially (which is kind of a big deal for introverts who initially admired one another from afar via the interwebs) and inevitably the talk turns to blogging together.

But then we finally did something about it. When we were talking music and mix tapes and Marisa was all "we need to do a mix tape blog hop" or something like that. And so now we are!

D'ya ever find yourself falling into the pit of "woe is me," where you just can't find the silver lining, no matter how hard you squint, and everything makes you either shake or smack your head—sometimes both?

Damn I'm tired of days like that. So today I'm going to try something new.

As a member of Influenster, I get to try out some pretty interesting products and then discuss my thoughts on them. Earlier this month, I received the TLC VoxBox, which included a bunch of products designed to make my life a little easier... maybe even a little sweeter. Sharing my thoughts on them here today!

Pop! Goes the culture

Once upon a time, I was a contributor to a group blog called Chick-Wit. The blog is still out there, as I'm reluctant to let it go. It was fun! Myself and my girls Heather and Dani would drop wisdom about pop culture and everything we loved and hated about it.

We kept it light and never mean but we would most definitely keep it snarky. It was a great outlet to discourse about those things that the interwebs are aflutter about but conversation topics that may not have as much traction in real life if you're not the sort to wade in the shallow end of the news pool.
