Take a peek inside my life as I stir in a little spooky, shake up some cocktail fun and garnish it with the parenting wiles of a little monster and boo.
Hang out in my web and join me in a toast to cobwebs, cocktails and motherhood.
I love to wear fun earrings and jewelry. It’s always been the perfect outlet to show off my passions and interests. I have so many spider earrings that I’m pretty close to having a pair for a whole month.
It has been silly busy this April. Considering I was planning to take it very easy in real life after all the crazy wild adventures I embarked on in March, the month still ran away with me. With it being my birthday month, I couldn’t help squeezing in an unexpected trip or two. For example, […]
This historic winery has been on my checklist for a couple years now (since Mary Davek recommended the film Bottle Shock to us and visited the equally historic Stag’s Leap for my birthday). We decided it was a perfect time to sneak it in during our thrilling adventure of celebrating our anniversary in the ever […]
I really wanted to share this during “Be Kind to Spiders” week, but my birthday week kind of ran away with me, so I’m positng in honor of events past. I make it no secret that I have dealt with pretty bad nightmares and insomnia. I can still recall a reoccurring dream I would have […]
I’m celebrating Be Kind to Spiders Week for the first time in 2019 by spreading awareness through helpful tips on how to be kind to arachnids.
They say time flies when you’re having fun. And as a couple, I like to think my husband and I know how to do just that. We might not make all the fancy parties or turn out to the grand events we planned to attend, but we certainly make the most of what life gives […]
So…way back in October, I recorded three of the five Halloween wine tasting videos I intended to share. If you go back and look, only two of my tastings were actually shared. So today, out of prosperity (and because I like to try wines I haven’t before for the Halloween season), I’m sharing my tasting […]
I know what you’re thinking. I got days mixed up. You’re about to tell me it’s Pi day. But guess what? It’s also Save a Spider Day. And the Smithsonian says we should celebrate! So curl up with your pizzas as the Candy Corn Thieves of Madison Manor share some simple rescue tips for aiding […]
It has felt like I had the entire year figured out for this monthly spot here on the blog. That is…if you don’t count February! I don’t know why the month of love and Women in Horror was such a struggle (and now that I think about it, I should have run with the Women […]
It feels like spring is right around the corner, but Winter is still in its full chilly force, even here in the California central valley. You won’t find me complaining, though. The chilly weather is perfect for my favorite hot cocktails to nip away at the cold. My personal favorite is Hot Buttered Rum, but […]
My passion for Halloween is no secret. The imagery of pumpkins and a sweet tooth craving for candy corn is one I can’t help but yearn for come August, even though I try to restrain myself on Samhain observance until September. Two years ago, on this very blog, I even declared that I would do […]
During Christmas week, we did a family vacation to Seattle, Washington for a well deserved break with just the three of us. We didn’t put too much on our agenda. We planned for two things. One, to attend the Enchant light maze in Safeco Park on Christmas eve. And two, to search for the bridge […]
