Mobile Tech Separation Anxiety

I know we talk about how dependent we’ve become on modern technology, especially our cell phones. While some people would say it’s bad, I don’t usually have an issue with it. I like being connected and knowing that if something were to happen I have a connection to the world at my fingertips. I suppose the unhealthy part is the anxiety one gets when they decide to leave their phone at home.

Courtney Hamilton’s Worst Break-Up Ever Contest

Remember the Worst Date Contest I published before my blog hiatus (which is still kind of happening since I haven’t been able to sit down and do any actual blogging with the craziness of the past week)? The contest was a success, and to follow up, Courtney is doing another one…the Worst Break-Up Ever Contest.

New Digs and New Routines

My blogging mojo flew the coop for awhile. In the days leading up to the move, I didn’t really have anything to write about. We were laying low and heading home after work. Even our weekends were fairly mellow. Plus, there was stress. Since I don’t like to use this space for venting, I didn’t want to come to the keyboard feeling out of sorts.

So I took a break and let things simmer. I think I’m…

Influenster Review: #GoProFoot Products

Between moving and binge reading, I’ve done a little procrastinating on the review and blogging front, but I finally got the chance to try out my ProFoot products, sent to me from Influenster…complimentary, of course…for testing purposes.

Let’s start with the ProFoot Orthotic Insole. I’ve had some rotten luck with insoles in the past, so I tend not to use them. I’m always up for trying something…

The Evolution of Romance Novels

Warning: there are going to be some touchy subjects in this post. Trigger warnings: rape, kidnapping, abuse.

I love romance novels. They can be cheesy and overdone, and a lot of historical romances read like a soap opera. I’m still a sucker for them. Recently, I decided to go back and read all of the books written by one of my favorite authors in the order they were written/published.

I didn’t…

Worst Date Contest and “Almost Royalty” Release

A few months back, I read and reviewed Almost Royalty by Courtney Hamilton. I really enjoyed it, so I was excited when Courtney asked me to take part in her Worst Date Ever Blog Tour. The problem? I didn’t date much and so couldn’t remember a really bad date. I had a few bad nights in my wild college days, but as far as bad dates? Nothing to catalogue.

Luckily, I was able to still take part by…

Road Trip To Texas

This blog will take a little more of a personal turn than the last one did. Since Dallas Comic Con is a huge thing, I wanted to give that recap its own space. However, there were other parts of the trip that happened, and I wanted to give them a little bit of air time too.

We left after work on Thursday with the plan to stop halfway and stay the night somewhere. The drive was nice. We listened to

Dallas Comic Con 2014

The weekend before last, Jon and I took a mini road trip to Texas for Dallas Comic Con. My brother-in-law invited us a couple months ago and scored passes for us, so we couldn’t resist. The drive is a longish one…eight hours to Burleson, where we stayed with family, and then another hour to Dallas for the con. It was well worth it!

We made sure to get there early to try to avoid long lines. We…

Quiet on the Homefront

Things haven’t actually been quiet, but I’ve had a tough time getting my butt in gear to do any blog posts. I got a bit overwhelmed with projects and volunteer opportunities, so I sort of shut down while my brain incorporated all the new things and took a break from blogging and creative ventures.

However, the plan is to get back into the groove over the next few days. I’ve been asked to…
