That Time I Tried Dunkin Donuts Cereal...

 I couldn't stop myself from buying both of the Dunkin Donuts cereals. 

I don't even like Dunkin Donuts coffee that much, but they sounded weird and worth trying...

That Time I Cruised on the Carnival Paradise...

I apparently lost my ability to write about my adventures... or maybe it's more the sifting through all my photos so that I can then write about them... but I did finally edit my video footage from this cruise and got all most of them on my YouTube Channel! I posted them all below for you, or you can go to my playlist and watch them on YouTube. Likes and subscribes are deeply appreciated!

That Time I Lived Like an Adult...

I watched this video and it was... well... "inspiring" might be a strong word... but I was inspired. Mostly to make a shopping list blog post.

But watch it, and then after the video I'm going to help you to furnish your home so that you too can Trick People into Thinking You Live Like an Adult!...

That Time I Cruised at Home...

I know. I've been missing cruising too! My cruise in September was canceled. I booked a cruise in August to replace it. Canceled. Rebooked that for September. We'll see. I also booked a cruise for July because of the great prices Carnival was offering. I was so excited to go on vacation in the summer! Canceled. Harumph.

I got to thinking... that maybe, like everything else we're doing at home... we should all go on a cruise at home...

That Time I Quipped...

I really like my Oral B electric toothbrush, but I've had my eye on the Quip for a long time. I like it's small footprint, but it lacks the spinny quality of the Oral B.

I've contemplated getting one for my travel bag, but $25-$55 seemed like a lot for such a purpose...

That Time I Made A GIF...

I've actually made GIFs before... but I wanted to publish this one. Making it was #supereasybarelyaninconvenience

That Time I Started Eating Pasta...

The first time I made this recipe it was with a friend for a potluck she was going to. I previously didn't eat pasta. It was just bland to me. Putting buffalo cheesy goodness to it (somewhat unfortunately) changed everything.
