In a “Chicago Minute” – The yummy adventures of TGFRL

Sometimes you just need to kick off the beginning of fall with a last-minute trip – or you are married to a TV producer who sometimes has to travel in the line of duty and you stow away!  So, a couple of weeks ago in the post-Maui haze, on September 11th in fact (though I didn’t realize until right before the plane took and hour … Continue reading In a “Chicago Minute” – The yummy adventures of TGFRL

My lipstick and I are home at last! (For a few weeks)

This picture seems like a hazy dream, but it was last month when I was on vacation in Maui with Mr. TGFRL, C-bomb and friends. You know how sometimes you don’t see a friend for months and you meet for a drink only THEN realizing that there is no way to properly catch up.

Endorsements from Friends: The human “Like” button

This was not my first trip to London, but before most trips I try to make note of the things my friends tell me to put on my “must DO (taste) (see) (buy)” list. And when I say friends, I often extend that to the world of fellow bloggers and bloggistas that inform my universe.
