Ten Minutes of a Psychic Reading for Me

Filed Under: Reviews/Giveaways

I must admit I'm not quite sure how to start out a post about me calling for a psychic reading because I got a DM on Twitter from Cecily. But I guess that pretty much sums it up, doesn't it? I went digging through the Hollywood Psychics site and you'd think some of those folks would ...

Right at this moment, I'm watching Season 4, Ep. 3 of Wire in the Blood. If you haven't watched it, I highly suggest it. Netflix has it streaming. I'm also taking a break from some geek work I'm doing so I'm in a bit of a rush to remind you of some stuff I think is ...

Filed Under: Reviews/Giveaways

Music is an important part of my life; it always has been. I attended my first concert when I was four. James Taylor. Apparently I forced Mom to spend the majority of the concert in the bathroom with me. Even though I don't have a record player, I still can't bring myself to get rid of ...

Sunday Dinner Roast with Lawhorns

Filed Under: Food and Drink, Recipes, Reviews/Giveaways

A while back I added "baby feeds" to the site because I wanted to write about more than just "mom stuff" but I didn't want to create multiple sites. I realized today I never explained how to subscribe to a specific feed so I thought I'd show you. First thing you do is find the baby ...

Filed Under: Food and Drink, Life, Reviews/Giveaways

When I first signed up for this project, I was a little excited about it. I was going to not only be reviewing the book, but also following the diet for thirty days and giving away a copy of the book. Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned. The hook of the Cinch! diet is, "Stop counting and ...

Baby Feeds Taste Like Crazy

The feeds don't REALLY taste like crazy...cause you can't eat them.

They don't really taste like crazy. That was just low hanging fruit. But now you're thinking, "Amy, what the heck are talking about and why are you writing an entire post about these 'baby feeds'?" I'm glad you asked! First off, baby feeds is what I'm calling the category feeds I've set up. The ones I've been promising ...
