Weekend plans: Pizza and books (almost)

My husband loves deep dish pizza… (I know he has good taste because he married me)  … but he always laments how hard it is to find restaurants in Arizona that do a good deep dish. And Chicago is far away.   … so I was SOOO excited when I found a frozen deep-dish pizza at…

Sneezing while reading – A Dangerous Combo

To Start: Allergies I don’t know WHAT is in the air right now (pollen? weeds? the spent ashes of all my empty boxes of wine coming back to haunt me?) … but I have had so many “sneeze attacks” in the past few days, that my husband thinks I need to dress up as a…

To firemen (and the romance novels about them!)

My best friend is a teacher with maybe the best commute home from work on the planet…. Not because it’s short. Or because there’s a great wine bar on the way Or a discount store selling Vera Bradley purses at 75% off (..wait, that’s my thing, not hers… anyway…) Her commute is AMAZING because, on…
