…with my friend and L.A.’s hottest taxidermist: Allis Marham Allis is the owner of Prey Taxidermy studio in Downtown LA, a taxidermist at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, and probably the only human pin-up model who would totally dominate should the world go full Mad Max.  Seriously, she’s the ultimate modern girl scout troop leader: she can throw her hair in victory rolls, …

A few weeks back R and I were discussing the idea of setting up a friend. We met a guy. We know a girl. We think they might like to know each other. To be fair, it was R’s idea, which makes this post even more interesting. In order to complete the set-up, we needed the assistance of another person – the person who knows …

Are You an ABC Family “Becomer”?

Hey Millennials, this is our lucky week! ABC Family just coined a new, even more annoying word to define the next generation so some of the heat will finally be off of our lazy, entitled butts. Sort of. From what I can tell “Becomers” are technically also Millennials… I think? “Becomers are exploring and establishing who they are becoming – personally, professionally and romantically — …

On Friday night R and I saw the latest Noah Baumbach movie, WHILE WE’RE YOUNG. It’s a funny/interesting/depressing/uplifting/way-too-true story, if you’re interested in that sort of thing, but the reason I’m writing about it today is because it prompted a conversation about cheating, specifically – who would you tell on if they cheated? Without giving anything away, there is a moment of infidelity in the movie, …

Hear R & Me Talk Finance & Romance on NPR

Last week R and I offered to talk about openly our married finances in exchange for the chance to hear our voices on NPR. I’m not sure it was a fair trade in the end because I always forget that I sound much like a middle school teacher’s pet, but I think we imparted some interesting wisdom on how to combine your money and stay …

This marks the 999th time I have opened my blogger account and started typing into this blank, white box. Not every post made it live, but the official file number is 999. I cannot fathom how that’s possible, but I have never been prouder. This project started as a place to share what I was experiencing as a confused post-grad in a big, expensive city …

7 Things I’ll Do While My Husband is Away

R is on official television business in two Canadian cities for the next 10 days. This makes me sad because I prefer when R is in the same city as me, plus I just started watching EMPIRE (and loving every second of it) and now I have to recap each and every detail of the episodes for him over Facetime, and I hate how I …
