Biscuits + Gravy


By now, you’ve gathered I have a ~thing~ for baseboards.


I think about them all the time. “Are they clean enough? Where does all this dust come from? How will I reach that corner tucked behind that very heavy object?


They’re the first thing I notice in every room I enter. I’m not a great dinner guest, honestly.


Imagine my sheer glee when a package arrived on my doorstep from my fellow clean freak and the woman who gave me life to find a BASEBOARD BUDDY. An actual tool for basket cases like me!!! It’s like a giant stick with a lil wipe wrapped around a square head. Said square is curved perfectly to hug your baseboard crevices just so. I was so excited, I ripped it open and put it together so quickly. Garr was standing by with his jaw on the floor like, “I thought things that read ‘assembly required’ gave you anxiety……….” Your girl just needs a lil motivation.


Just one step closer on my quest to build the strongest army of cleaning tools in the world.

Sweet Potato Poutine

It’s that time of year again.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

The time of year when I go home for Christmas & let my parents fawn all over me & tell me how much I am loved & adored. *Sigh*

Are you guys as spoiled as I am & still get 800 presents? No?? Oh.

I didn’t even ask for anything huge this year. When I was little, if there wasn’t a giant, unwrapped present near the tree on Christmas morning, my world would explode. “WHERE’S MY BIG THING?!” is recorded on more than one Christmas video, let me tell you. Again, this is not my fault, my parents should have procreated more.

Like, all I want this year is a fit bit & a blank check is that even too much to ask for??????


P.S. Christmas calls for a two week blogging detox. I’ll miss your sweet faces but will be back with fresh recipes & ridiculousness on January 4th. Smooches & safe holidays to all of my little dumplings!
