(Taking a page out of the Kendyl book because everyone needs a little good on their Sunday night and there is a lot of good lately.) -Wonderful friends who play football, talk me into purchases, send random texts and show their support, try to talk me into puppies, dazzle me with their Googling skills, learn my favorite games (ahem, Sequence) and love them, etc., etc. -A non-winter winter…...
PPSA: Personal Public Service Announcement!
mabtv3: I mentioned that I was starting a volunteer project…and it’s to be the media representative, for PurpleStride New York City 2012, which will raise money and awareness for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. As I’m trying to get my “ducks in a row” as it concerns the materials/resources I will have to reach out to media, I figured I’d start with something in my own space: ...
The Best Meatballs in Easy Tomato-Cream Sauce
yourhealthista: Despite my ambiguous feelings toward Giada, her meatballs are really something special. I first discovered them when I made Giada’s Italian Wedding Soup. I had some leftover meatball meat (is that the right word?), so I decided to cook some up and eat them on their own. Best idea ever. They were delicious and totally carried themselves without the rest of the soup. (Side note:...
In her earliest memory, Michelle Williams is on a preschool field trip to the...– GQ, Feb 2012 … Go read this interview with Michelle Williams. I find her very introspective and often poignant. Rare. (via live-to-the-point-of-tears) I love this.

I'm an asshole.
We met a broker two weeks ago who showed us an apartment and we discussed football while looking. He was a Giants fan, The Boy is a Niners fan. So today, he wrote to follow up and began the email with: Hi, I hope you enjoyed the games yesterday ;). I needed to write back and thank him for his time and explain that we’re no longer interested… so I wrote: Hi Kyle, Since the...
Here come all the Facebook friends who haven’t even seen a Giants game this season with their “GO GMEN!” statuses. Ugh. Time to ignore lamebook. Not that I’m bitter or anything because I TOTALLY AM.
I've never had an Egg McMuffin.
Apropos of last night’s discussion. The “egg” part weirds me out. Ick.
Is it me or do most girls have a bag they’re hell-bent on buying once they finally make it as a “real live grown up?” I have two. First, when I’m a real live grown up who stops with the Ikea furniture and the candy and the nail-biting, I shall buy a Chloe bag like this one. The blue is killing it. (Because what’s more grown up than spending a month’s rent on a...
emmaleah: In response to Lemon’s recent post, I’ve been thinking a lot about what makes a successful cohabitative state. My boyfriend and I were roommates before we were a couple (which you already know, because I am endlessly amused by this fact and repeat it here ad nauseam); when we decided to “move in” move in together, it was a matter of moving my comforter and endless stash of tank tops...
A very long way of saying... I'm moving.
Oh hey there. Long time no chat. Yeah, that’s my bad. You see, almost every night, as I’m drifting off to sleep, I mentally go over things on my to do list. Things that have been there for too long and I can’t muster up the energy to actually accomplish (PLEASE let MLK Day be a day o’ accomplishment in the Lemon household.. please?), and in addition, I think of people I...

An apartment floorplan is faxed to you (faxed! so old school!) and it’s missing a bathroom. You immediately call to confirm this is an oversight and the bathroom is indeed located INSIDE the apartment.
Run, don't walk
To the nearest bookstore/amazon and buy the Homesick Texan Cookbook. Tonight, I made the Poblano Mac and Cheese and it is hands down my favorite mac and cheese I’ve ever made. Ever. And that’s saying something. Also? The Boy made the carnitas and had good things to say… if you’re into pork butt. :) RUN.
20 New Year's Resolutions for [Everyone]
rachelinbrooklyn: Before you status update, Tweet, Tumble or Instagram, pause and say to yourself, “is it entirely necessary that I share this morsel of thought with my entire social network?”and if the answer is not, “yes, I absolutely must,” then step away from the Internet. Know which candidate you’re going to vote for in the upcoming presidential election, and know why. Enough with the...
My Favorites, Right Now
jaclynday: Here’s a look at what I’m loving or wishing for right now: … Now that I have an iPad, I’m overwhelmed by number of case and cover choices available for it.
