Halloween Costumes For the Pratical Adult

Well ladies and gentlemen, we did it. Another All-Hallows Eve is upon us. What, if at all, do I dress up as this year?

Cinema {ish} With Jennifer: Blade Runner

So, what to do with a movie you paid 10$ for and never want to watch again? You post it for free on Craigslist and see if someone is crazy enough to want it.

Car Shopping {ish} With Jennifer

My husband recently had a run in with a concrete barrier in Austin (thankfully, he wasn’t hurt) and needless to say we’ve found ourselves in the market for a new vehicle. Yay, debt.

Fashion {ish} With Jennifer

….because being practical and flying is soo 1903.. Ahh, the great American road trip; hours of ispy, rock, paper scissors and STOP TOUCHING ME, that childhood memories and divorces are made of.  Nothing tests the strength of your patience and marriage more than sitting side by side in a car with someone for 18hrs. 4Continue reading “HOW NOT TO PREPARE FOR A 18HR CAR RIDE..”
