Orange is the New Black
By now everyone has binge watched Netflix’s amazing hit, Orange Is The New Black and if you are like me, you have developed a huge girl crush on Alex Vause. However, not many people have read the novel by the same name that the show is loosely based off of. I will admit that the novel is not quite as drama filled as the show, which comes as no surprise since Jenji Kojin (the creator) is responsible for the drama filled hit, Weeds. The novel, however, is a real and honest look into life for a woman in an American prison. I think that everyone in prison-obsessed America should read it, especially any woman who has ever made a mistake (so basically all women except Tina Fey, who is indeed perfect).
Pumpkin carving has reached all new levels of amazing over the past few years. Two years ago, John and I purchased an elaborate pumpkin carving kit and actually impressed our friends and family with our sinister faced jack-o’-lantern. Since then, we have decided to pick a fun and challenging pumpkin design every year. In the next two weeks we will share this year’s choice with you!
Cheese and I are seeing each other again…and things are good. I’m still eating a mostly vegan diet but I am having one dairy cheat a week (which is usually cheese or something that already has milk or eggs in it since I never have them on their own).
Laugh Filled Dinners at Home With Friends
Cooking up new recipes at home with John for our friends to enjoy is always fun. Now that fall is here, we are finding so many new ways to prepare old favorites and we are having a blast doing it. We also have the kind of friends who you can laugh the night away with which helps burn off some of those delicious calories.
