One last thing I wanted to say in 2016 is that this was a momentous year in one respect — I figured out my new power color! For many years it was probably purple, maybe blue… there was some waffling. But this year I realized that in this phase of my life, it’s definitely teal… or aqua? Or whatever you call it. I didn’t realize … Continue reading A Pop of Color (For the End of the Year*)
Even though this blog is no longer “The Daily Binge,” obviously food is still VERY important to me. Therefore I want to tell you guys about our wedding dessert quest, partly because it is a story about realizing less is more. After the wedding, I emailed our vendors to have a mutual thank-you love-fest (I recommend this), and our photographer/cake-topper-maker Tammy said something that stuck with … Continue reading Just Desserts
Okay, this is going to be a little bit about the wedding again, but I swear it’s really about how it’s CHARLIE’S FOURTH BIRTHDAY!!! (Aka 6 months since we adopted Charlie from the shelter.) In case you’re wondering, shelters guess a dog’s age by looking at their teeth (as far as we’ve read). For whatever reason, Charlie’s teeth made him look 3.5 years old. So the … Continue reading On Crying & Dog-Birthdays
Hello! One month ago today we got married! And I’m just now emerging from a fog of exhaustion and jet lag! (At least, I hope I’m emerging. Who knows what tomorrow will bring!) Since last I blogged, pre-wedding shit hit the fan. Those last few days before the wedding, suddenly we were up all night wrapping gifts, writing cards, and packing everything into neat boxes for … Continue reading The Honeymoon Is Over!
Hi guys. It’s been a while but in my defense I thought I hadn’t blogged since before we moved, so it’s actually been… less while. The really big news is that we got a dog, a 4-year-old (ish) bichpoo. That was actually the last thing we did in 2015 — we found Charlie at our local shelter on December 30th. He probably had the worst … Continue reading Everything’s Just Dandelion (Tea)
In case anybody was distressed by that no-Spanx-under-the-wedding-dress thing in my last post, I got some clarification. My wedding dress salon called yesterday to tell me my dress is in, and I was like, whew, good thing I worked out yesterday! (… And too bad I can’t walk today!) Then they told me I don’t need to do my first fitting until April. And I felt a … Continue reading The Magic of Boning
You guys! I kind of forgot to blog for, like… over a year. Okay, I didn’t forget. I’ve just been Instagramming, because Instagram is like tiny little photo-blogs throughout the day. If you’re me. On the vegan-ness front, this is what happened, in case you’re curious (and even if you weren’t): I went to a nutritionist and we agreed I’d eat less salt and sugar … Continue reading Remembering 2015
