Vacation Ramblings: Which do you prefer, resorts or cruises?

I recently just returned from my all inclusive vacation in Cancun, Mexico. For 5 fantastic days, I sat on a bar stool in a pool and was in my happy place. Read More »


I Need David Wright Back in My Life

So in this (so far) successful season for the New York Mets, their star captain David Wright has only played in eight games. He was diagnosed with spinal stenosis back in May, and since then has been shut down and slowly rehabbing to make it back on the field.Read More »

The Exception to Trusting Tom Hanks: There is PLENTY of Crying in Baseball

Did you know that Tom Hanks topped Forbes’ list of “The 100 Most Trusted People in America?”

As someone who played softball for 18 out of the 23 years of her life, it of course is a give-in that A League of Their Own is in my top favorite movies. But even as a young girl, I’ve always had an issue with that famous line, “There’s no crying in baseball.” I know Tom Hanks was playing a character when he said that, and that’s not really his personal opinion. But YOU WERE WRONG TOM HANKS.Read More »

My Favorite Kind of Binge-Watch

There’s nothing like speeding through a new show you are obsessed with. It doesn’t have to be “new,” per se, but new to you. You know what I mean. I’m currently doing that with Parks and Recreation, and it will be so bittersweet when I finally finish it in about a week (with work and the lack of sleep, I haven’t been at my top binge-watching speed rate).

But my favorite kind of binge-watch is watching almost the entire favorite seasons of my favorite shows. This is one of the reasons Netflix is so fantastic. Sure, there are plenty of shows new to me that I could start in the time I have to watch, but there’s something about reliving the season that truly solidified your obsession or love for a show.Read More »

Cutting the Cord: A Hard Choice All TV Addicts Must Make

(I know I used Charlie as my featured image but I would NEVER cut the cord on Supernatural. So sorry if that’s misleading.)

My personality rarely allows me to quit anything once I start it. For the love of God, I’m STILL playing Candy Crush Saga. Sad to say I’m on Level 925 and I don’t plan on stopping until I finally reach the point I don’t have any levels left. I don’t consider that an addiction, because it’s a mindless game that I only play when I have free time, and if I’m stuck on a level for a month, I really could care less. But that’s the kind of non-quitter I am.Read More »

True Detective Recap: ‘The Western Book of the Dead’

So to preface this, I did not watch the critically acclaimed, award-winning first season of True Detective. It looked like one of those very slow burning HBO shows that I really need to dedicate my attention span to. Also, I’m not a huge fan of Woody Harrelson, even when he’s Haymitch Abernathy. But when I heard some of my faves, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and especially Taylor Kitsch were in Season 2, and that watching it didn’t require any knowledge of Season 1, I was willing to give it a try. So here’s my quick thoughts on Season 2, Episode 1 of True Detective.Read More »
