Friday Show and Tell

Right before we moved from the Bay Area, I was laid off from one job and then quit another job for the move. Suddenly I had a lot more time on my hands. But, because I’m crazy, I quickly found ways to fill that time. I started writing for Babble and then started two other blogs, Kitchen Tunage (my music blog) and The Spoiler Alert (my TV blog, where I also have other great contributors writing). It’s like I like being a crazy person.

The other day Nate was like, “You should totally be sharing the Kitchen Tunage music on your food blog.” And I was like, “Isn’t that why I started the music blog?” And he was like, “Yeah, but it’s your kitchen playlist, it all goes together!” And I was like, “Hmmmmmm….maybe….”

And then I realized, I also kinda wanna share my Babble stuff with you, too. Plus, I’m always up for talking about TV.

So, I am instituting Friday Show and Tell!

Here’s how Show & Tell will work. I’ll share my “stuff” from the week. But I want you to show and tell, too! Share posts from your own blogs, share something you found online that week, share an interesting news story. Whatever you want!

Have you heard Lorde? She’s only SIXTEEN. Unreal. She’s huge in New Zealand. She should be huge here. Let’s make it happen.

Also, I hope you’re feeling Safe and Sound, because we are definitely feeling it around the Maynard house. Good stuff.

Marie is loving Orange is the New Black. I might have to jump on the bandwagon! I am loving Dr. Vogel. A LOT. But I I am not loving that Jasmine M went home. Such a bummer! (Also, old news, but if you’re into Mad Men or Game of Thrones, I had to write about those season finales, here and here.)

I made some beautiful bread in honor of The Hunger Games, I shared some ways to improve your cooking experience while camping, and compiled my MOST FAVORITE chocolate chip cookie recipes all in one place.

Your turn! Show and tell!

    This is probably not what you are looking for, but… we learned that a sectional couch does NOT look as good in our TV room as we thought it would! So, we had to return it to the furniture store (always fun) and now we are back to the drawing board as to what kind of new couch to buy. Hey – you asked! 😉

      ha ha! this is hilarious. the first couch that we bought I seriously had a nervous breakdown the day after we bought it but were still waiting for it to be delivered…I called the store to find out the return policy and when the saleswoman asked which customer I was (she was the one who sold it to us), I lied and said I bought it at another store. I was CRAZY. THANKFULLY we ended up liking it and keeping it for years. but I am very glad to hear that you can in fact return couches if you need to! 🙂

    Love your couch story, Jane.

    I don’t have anything to share at the moment, but I will figure out something to share for one in the future hopefully. This is a great idea.
