{Recipe} Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles

Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles

Sometimes something I make is so easy I feel guilty calling it a recipe. Almost. These chocolate chip snickerdoodles are too good, though, not to share! Start with refrigerated cookie dough. I used Nestle Toll House Mini Chocolate Chip cookies. Add 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to a gallon sized plastic bag. Break apart the cookies, roll them into a ball and shake in the bag to coat them with the cinnamon sugar mix. Bake according to package directions.   Yep. That's it. Less than 10 minutes and you're enjoying almost homemade chocolate chip snickerdoodles! Easy, right? … [Continue]

The Problem With Those Facebook Videos

Problem With Videos

I am not complaining about Facebook. People love to complain about Facebook. All. Of. The. Time. "I hate my news feed." "Nobody ever sees what I post." "The messenger app is spying on me." Blah, blah, blah. My typical response is, "Welp...don't like it, don't use it. It's free. No one is forcing you to use Facebook." I am not here to complain about Facebook. I am complaining about how you use Facebook. And I mean you in the general sense. Not you specifically. You are awesome. But anyway, if … [Continue]

{Tutorial} Hidden Mickey of Hidden Mickeys Mirror

Hidden Mickey of Hidden Mickeys

So, for full disclosure I should tell you...I made this to enter a contest. A contest I didn't win. I thought this Hidden Mickey mirror was kind of cute, though...and  you might want to see how to make it, right? Right? Anyone? Bueller? I picked up three super inexpensive craft mirrors and used hot glue to hold them in place. Hot glue likes to pop off of smooth surfaces like mirrors so use high heat and use a lot of glue. When you're buying the mirrors, just hold them up against each other to … [Continue]

Two Totally 80s Spotify Playlists


I started out using other streaming music services, but about a year and a half ago I started using Spotify. And I haven't looked back. Why do I love Spotify? Because it gives me what I want, when I went it. When I hear a song I like, I'll add it to one of my playlists on Spotify. Since I have a premium Spotify account I can even make my music available offline. That means I can listen anywhere, even when service isn't available. And I have to have my music. Quiet and I do not get along. When … [Continue]

The Oh-So-Portable Intel 2 in 1

Intel Travels

I have simple  needs. I need things to be cute, practical and portable. My Intel 2 in 1 meets those needs perfectly. Last month I traveled to Califonia with my Dell Venue 11 Pro. During the day it served as my laptop as I worked on posts, answered emails and checked in with friends. The USB port meant that I could use my wireless mouse-I'm helpless with trackpads. It also meant I could upload the photos from my trip before heading home. The extreme portability also meant it could stash in my … [Continue]

Spinach Artichoke Pasta #TEArifficPairs #shop

Summer is winding down and I've been stuck inside. You know, nothing too horrible. Certainly not enough to complain about. Much. Just a few bouts of being sick. A few moments of being so busy I can't see straight. The occasional I'm sick and I'm busy-now that is not a pretty sight at all. I'm sorry for everyone who's had to deal with me over the last few weeks. Can I make it up to you by sharing a super easy and super delicious little meal? It's been pretty perfect for me, with my constant … [Continue]
