July In a Nutshell

Have you noticed how quiet we’ve been this month? Well today’s post explains why!

Summertime Sadness

On July 1st I was still very much riding the Post-Disney vacation wave of magical happiness and looking forward to July 4th being on a Friday.

Nothing could take away my awesome summer glow (aka sunburn). Then the unthinkable happened; my Post-Vacation depression started to set in and I began feeling blue.

I tried to find comfort in my parent’s new kitten, Elsa (named by my niece), but even her…

Review: ‘Sex Tape’ is ummm…well…

'Sex Tape' has us feeling a little confused. Check out the review to see what we mean! #SexTape

Since taking over as Doctor Who’s executive producer and head writer, Steven Moffat has…

If any of you have ever been to New York or spoken to a New Yorker, you probably know that there are lots of New Yorkers that have never actually visited the Statue of Liberty. I know when I first went, I thought, ‘how could you live to something that holds such meaning and historical value and never visit it?” Well let me tell you, it’s actually pretty easy.

Back in May I stated that Belle may have been the best movie I’d ever seen. Well, apparently 2014 is the year of movies Katie loves because Begin Again has taken the top spot on my list by a very, very wide margin.

I was genuinely surprised at the lack of material available for a Sherlock Holmes themed wedding. With literary themes in general, and the mega-popularity of the BBC’s TV adaptation, you’d think there would be more people on the bandwagon. Still, I managed to round up a few key ideas if the idea of a mysterious wedding intrigues you.

Fancy a Sherlock themed wedding? So do we! I was genuinely surprised at the lack of material available for a Sherlock Holmes themed wedding. With literary themes in general, and the mega-popularity of the BBC’s TV adaptation, you’d think there would be more people on the bandwagon.

When my best friend comes to visit me in Dallas, we usually find ourselves driving downtown to the Dallas Museum of Art. Why? Well, my best friend is an art teacher, and her love of art has rubbed off on me to a certain degree. Also, admission is free. FREE!

Being a DMA Friend is also free. Basically, you create an account on a super cool tablet in the main…

Yup. I took the plunge. I am officially a part of the online dating pool. And I’m really not sure how I feel about it. Granted, it has only been four days…but I’m not overstating things when I say that this is a really big deal for me.

Because I’m an introvert (and super awkward), a lot of people have suggested that online dating could be a great way to meet and screen potential dates before –…
