Thirsty Thursday: Four Summer Events (and an Outlier)

One of the things that I really like about Charleston is that there’s always something going on or somewhere new to go. We managed to make it every tap room that was open last year, then five or seven new breweries opened this year with more on the way. It’s challenging to keep up with … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Four Summer Events (and an Outlier)

Lit Tuesday: A Walk in the Woods

There was a legitimate reason that I skipped out last week. Miles’s maternal grandmother passed away. It wasn’t anything unexpected as she had Alzheimer’s but, even when you see it coming, it’s unexpected. The funeral was on Thursday (thus we had to coordinate travel and I worked extra on Tuesday night) and, more than anything, … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: A Walk in the Woods

Lit Tuesday: Reading Challenge Check #1

I figured, since I'm doing this reading challenge, I should provide you guys with an update. This is also a good way for me to figure out how my progress is going and to maybe chastise myself and tell myself to stop getting distracted with other things. (Me? Getting distracted? Perish the thought!)   A … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Reading Challenge Check #1

Lit Tuesday: Burning Bright

I subscribe to a daily email from Bookbub.com that alerts me to free or cheap (less than $3) ebooks that I can download for my Kindle. With the exception of probably two (soon to be three) series, I only download the ones that are actually free because I'm cheap and have too much left to … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Burning Bright

Lit Tuesday: Polynesian Books

I watched Moana over the weekend. I'll admit, I can't get the soundtrack out of my mind. The pacing of several of the songs is different from most other Disney soundtracks. The fact that the main character is portrayed by an unknown actress is really exciting, too--I think her voice is astounding. It also doesn't … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Polynesian Books

Thirsty Thursday: Trying New Things

It's only March 9th and I've had more things that I don't normally drink than I have had of my normal stuff. Well, kinda. It just feels like it. Rather than promote one thing, I'm just going to talk about the different things I've tried (well, the three different things, anyways). First up, on Sunday, … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Trying New Things

Thirsty Thursday: Frothy Beard 2.0

Next Tuesday is Miles's birthday (yes, I'm a month older; yes, we've heard all the jokes; yes, I've made some of those jokes), so, like any person would, I asked him what he wanted to do. He wants to go to Frothy Beard Brewing, which is a brewery that has taken one of the top … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Frothy Beard 2.0
