Happy Thank God 2014 Is Over!

Whelp. Halloween is here and, as usual, I’m torn between not caring very much and feeling badly for not caring very much because Halloween is the cool holiday now.  No one hip likes Christmas anymore. Me?  I’m a Thanksgiving girl. Because food.

This will be the first of many posts in this vein.  The end game here is that since I (lamentably) do not have unlimited funds at this juncture in my life, I will let YOU all know about every superfluous little thing I covet and then live vicariously through you when y...
