My last post mentioned how my emotions have been all over the place and it’s such an unusual spot for me. I’m finally in a very uncomfortable spot. A good uncomfortable spot.

That was until I made plans with a friend for lunch and when we were trying to think of… Read More Coming Out of the (Veg) Closet
I like watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and Joan Rivers on The Fashion Police. I can’t explain why. I won’t even try. It’s my tv guilty pleasure. What is your tv guilty pleasure?
