So you’re 28 and you live with your parents?

Well, in-laws, more accurately. Hubs and I are living in my in-laws basement. Despite popular belief we are not destitute. There are approximately zero apartments in this town that allow pets. The good news is, now that we have zero rent/mortgage payments, a lake house is in our near future. Our house in Houston closes on the […]

Happy Hurricane… errm… Halloween!

Hurricane Sandy came and went. We are all alive and well here in our teeny apartment. My brother and his girlfriend also got stranded here.  Poor kids. Anyway, we didn’t lose any power/internet/cable.  We hardly had any rain.  All is good in the hood.  In honor of Halloween, Hubs wrote a fun post for you […]

Hipster for a Day

Last week, over whiskey, a friend of ours came up with an awesome idea. Host a hipster party. Genius. It all went down last Friday and it was as epic as it sounds.   The decorations were awesome.   Our friend Joe and Husband posing with a picture of a hipster that strongly resembles one […]
