10 Things To Know About Neighborhood Groups On Facebook

  If there’s something you need to know, want to know, or probably have absolutely no business knowing, chances are you can find out about it on Facebook. You can swap stories, clothing, furniture, and secrets on the platform. Among friends, among relatives, and even … among neighbors. Closed Facebook Groups — exclusively designed to connect neighbors to each other — are set up to connect real neighbors in real neighborhoods around the nation. But like, online. And there are so many awesome things about these virtual Groups! They’re managed by people who live in the ‘hood currently, and who…

pumpkin-pie

  This easy pumpkin pie is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving feast! For more than a few years I’ve been selected “pie maker” for both families’ Thanksgiving dinners. Thankfully (pun intended) we don’t try and squeeze our meals in on one day anymore. As a child I grew up doing that, and I loved every minute of the hustle-bustle from one grandparents’ house to the other, eating all the things, and enjoying the merriment that went along with each stop. As an adult with my own kids now, the mere thought of racing around on a holiday exhausts me,…

Brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers

  Farmers Fishers Bakers has a beautiful, rustic-yet-modern ambiance with a lively, fun vibe and a scrumptious brunch. It’s worth the trek to Georgetown! Confession time… The Pursuit of it All ladies are brunching fanatics. F-A-N-A-T-I-C-S. There’s nothing quite as squeal-inducing as a well-displayed spread of ALL THE FOOD IN THE WORLD that’s just waiting to be leisurely consumed. Also, where else is it perfectly acceptable to drink before 10 a.m., in an atmosphere where it’s also perfectly acceptable to turn up in last night’s clothes? Nothing says, “Weekend!” quite like a delicious, leisurely brunch. If we could figure out a way…

5 Bad Airport Habits You Need To Stop Right Now!

  Last week I had to travel to Illinois for a two-day business trip. I don’t travel frequently, but every other month or so I find myself in an airport headed somewhere west of here, to meetings, conferences, or something else job-related. The closest airport to me is in Baltimore, and unfortunately none of the airlines I’m able to use for said work trips have direct flights from there to my most frequent destination in Illinois. (Read: not Chicago.) This means I spend a significant amount of time in airports, consumed by layovers. It’s not all bad, really. The stress that comes with a…

It's peculiar alright: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (a movie review)

  It’s been ages since a movie I’ve wanted to pay 13 American dollars to see has hit the theaters. I feel like there’s a dead zone in the movie industry between, like, Labor Day and October. Alas, fall is here and that means movies-worth-seeing season is upon us! This weekend brought us Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Queen of Katwe – two that have been on my list since early this year. I loaded up my three dudes and decided to start with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. It was a little more appealing to my older kid than Queen of Katwe, and to be honest,…
