Music Monday – She & Him (WITH FULL ALBUM PREVIEW)

The first track off of She & Him’s much anticipated new album, “Volume 3” doesn’t disappoint on any level – it’s bubbly, fresh and true to the group’s folky core. “Never Wanted Your Love” is led once again by Zooey Deschanel’s soulful vocals, and M. Ward’s fantastic musical arranging, and it makes me feel like…

They are individually wrapped wipes designed to cleanse your face,…

Chalene’s Chocolate Shakeology Balls

While reading my copy of Chalene Johnson’s “Push”, I couldn’t help but skip around to the back to peruse the recipes for a while – and boy, are there some good ones included! One in particular popped out to me, for Chocolate Shakeology Balls. I’d seen variations online of a similar idea before, but had…

Music Monday – New Kids On the Block

I honestly didn’t think there would be a day where I featured NKOTB on my blog – I mean maybe if I had this blog back in 1988, when I was 5 and screaming “Hangin’ Tough” from my bedroom it would have been another story (blogs at that age would be amusing to read now)…
