Odds and Ends


1. 11 hacks scientifically proven to make you feel closer to your partner. I think it’s legit.

2. A Donald Trump portrait made of 500 dicks. Enough said.

3. Surely you saw the Irish guy who filmed his entire trip to Vegas in the wrong direction.

4. Listen, I don’t eat gluten, which rules out most pies, but I would totally eat a Patti LaBelle pie after seeing this review.

5. 10 maps that will change the way you view the world. The internet one. Wow.

6. Great post on divorce. I’ve always loved Serge’s writing.

7. YES. I knew I was a creative genius. What’s that noise? Do you hear that?

8. How cool is this teacher? Makes me misty.

9. Alice Bradley started a new podcast on mental health, and I’m totally digging it. I mean, how could you NOT love a podcast called “The League of Awkward Unicorns?”

10. How much sex makes you happy, according to scientists. Do you agree?

11. 5 groups doing important work with the refugee situation. Also, did you know Anne Frank was another refugee denied by the United States?

My Birthday Weekend in The Mexican Riviera


I’ve told you about my birthversary, right? November 5th is my wedding anniversary followed by my birthday on the 6th. (I have no clue why I thought this was such a good idea at the time.) Well, about a month or two ago, I was invited on a trip hosted by the Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa and The MOMS for a little mom escape. Happy birthday to me! (Although my husband wasn’t exactly thrilled that I spent our 11th anniversary wining and dining in Mexico…sorry honey, it won’t happen again, I promise.)

(Although, I secretly think this video I sent him from my arrival at the Cancun airport made him smirk.)

It was a rainy weekend, for sure, but the sun made an appearance a few times throughout my stay. See?
