My husband asked me, "Why are you spending all this time and money on these old sewing machines? Wouldn't you rather have a new one?" *Insert horrified look here* This is why I ultimately abandoned my modern electric sewing machine and went vintage full-time.
My boyfriend and I decided to buy our own house. We knew it was going to be difficult but we didn't think it would be this difficult. We had found the perfect house, but with costly repairs needed. Suddenly my boyfriend wants a townhome, or a small house as a starter home, or even a condo. Sharing walls is not the long-term solution, but is it the short term solution? Should I be more worried about what's right for us, than what's right for my wallet? Or would what's right for my wallet eventually be what's right for us?
I have a question about sex — more specifically number of sexual partners. I recently hit double digits, and I have no problem with this or the choices I have made. As a 25-year-old woman, I don't think that number is particularly high. I am not ashamed. But I do wonder how/when I should handle it in future dating scenarios? Do you wait till they bring it up or tell them before you add them to your number? Is there an "okay" number of people to have slept with? If yes, what is it, and is it different for men and women?
Okay, I don't like my eggs sunnyside-up. And we all may remember how much I failed at my attempt to make one during the cooking challenge. But if perhaps I had this Sunnyside Silicon Egg Shaper at my disposal, there would have been fewer tears (and curse words) shed over my eggs.
In fact, look how happy this thing can make your breakfast plates…
When we first moved to Indonesia, one of the biggest culture shock obstacles I had to overcome was the Indonesian bathroom. Whether you're rich or poor, or somewhere in-between, Indonesian bathrooms are very different than their American counterparts.
The first thing you might notice when you visit an Indonesian restroom is the lack of toilet paper. Whether you're in public market, someone's house, or a fancy mall, you're probably going to find that there's no tissue next to the toilet. Why? Because of the "butt hose."
For years I've wanted a bookcase that incorporates a cat tree. I think it's really important for my cats to have a designated place to scratch that isn't the furniture and a way to be the tallest thing in the room without knocking over breakable stuff I care about. BUT I hate the look of cat trees. Hence, the cat tree bookcase.
My hubby and I started drinking tea a few winters ago while trying to cut down on sugar and pop, and it's been a huge hit in the house ever since. Unfortunately it did take some trial and error to figure out the best ways to buy and brew a variety of loose leaf teas. That is what I'd like to share, the basics of getting into loose leaf tea without breaking the bank or winding up with a bunch of tea you hate (I swear I didn't just throw out three tins of two-year-old tea that had only a couple of cups used…)
