Yesterday, in honor of our first entire weekend off together in months (and having a gift card from Christmas), the hubby and I attempted to go out to lunch at a local Applebee's. Lately, millennials have been accused of "killing" old school casual dining chains like Applebee's, but I've always enjoyed going there...until now. Also,… Continue reading The Trusty Old Carolina Ale House
As I wrote about a couple days ago, I had a business dinner tonight at Ruth's Chris Steak House. I've never been there before, but the partners of the company I'm contracting for wanted to go there and they were paying, so I agreed. If I had to pay for myself, I would've insisted on… Continue reading My Official Review Of Ruth’s Chris Steak House: The Proletariat Successfully Infiltrated The Bourgeois
I'm a born and raised country girl and I used to go muddin' all the time back when I lived in Ohio. In the years since I traded in NE Ohio for Cary, NC and my trucks/Jeeps for a fuel-efficient Kia, I've really missed my old life and hobbies. So, when I accidentally got my… Continue reading You Gotta Get A Little Mud On The Tires

Unfortunately, contract work can be fickle and sometimes contracts fall through at inopportune times, making me regroup and find another revenue stream quickly. This happened… Continue reading Food Delivery: It’s Not Just For College Kids Anymore
Before this weekend, I'm embarrassed to say it had been over 5 years since my last camping trip. I used to go often when I lived in rural Ohio, but my lifestyle changed when I moved to the ugly concrete jungle suburbia known as Cary, NC in 2013. In Cary, people buy cookie-cutter houses two… Continue reading Camping Thoughts: It’s OK To Just Do Nothing Sometimes (Actually It’s Awesome)
I'm not a city girl. Before I lived here, I lived in a town so small you could reference "the light" when giving someone directions because there was literally only one traffic light in town. Before that, I lived in a town so small it had zero traffic lights (but plenty of meth labs). There… Continue reading Escaping From The Concrete Jungle
