I was looking at houses in Georgia (where I am from) and noticed houses that are gorgeous and are cheaper than where we are currently living and looking to buy in Alabama. Why is the price so different? I don't know, but I am willing to move from one state to another. The problem: my husband isn't willing to move. How do you buy a house together when neither of you agrees on the location?
You saw her awesome mustache-themed bathroom and loved it. Now check out how Homie Metal Maggie made a pair of outdoor side tables with just a couple of $2 plates and old plant holders.
As an attorney, a lot of my job is helping people have hard conversations. Over years of facilitating these tough conversations, I've come up with some steps that make them more productive and less painful. These aren't just good for "legal" conversations — they can work for anything from talking about moving cross-country for a job to planning a birthday party!
Make your pasta sauce in bulk and then freeze it. The result is a stack of Sauce Bricks you can pull out to use whenever you need 'em, thus sparing the time required to make it from scratch. We've successfully used (defrosted) frozen sauce not just for pasta, but also lasagna, manicotti, and pizza.

I woke up to a phone call from my husband at 6:30 one morning and the not-so-exciting news that his keys, wallet, and phone were stolen from work. His wallet, of course, had his ID and Social Security Card in it, along with a debit card and the one measly credit card we had. I knew I was in for an annoying morning, but I felt fine: our bank shuts down cards the minute you say "stol–" and we had the foresight to opt into our phone company's insurance program so I knew that would be handled as well.
Can we have a conversation about how to practically help a friend with a diagnosis of cancer (or other serious disease)? Just this week a very close old friend of mine (with 2 little kids) found out she has ovarian cancer, and it is spreading already. This is scary, scary stuff. Not much else is known right now. But I can't be the only person with a friend facing this.
