There are games that Evil Husband loves that I just have had the hardest time getting into. Race for the Galaxy is one of these games.
I began this blog as one of my recreational hobbies that I thought might end up just like other new hobbies I've started...forgotten. I have spent way more time than I ever imagined I would on this blog and trying to fit in all the hobbies to have something to write about has been challenging. … Continue reading The Versatile Blogger Award
One of Evil Husband's favorite ways to ask me if I'm up for board game night is to repeatedly ask me in the most awful French accent imaginable, "Dooo you want to play... Carcassonne?" For years, it's been a running joke in our house. But since Carcassonne was one of the first games we purchased, … Continue reading Carcassonne?
I came up with the idea of pairing two of the things I enjoy most in this world, books & beer, for my Instagram account to have more pictures to post during the week. I've decided to begin a Books & Brews series in addition to my monthly hobby as well. Every book I read … Continue reading Books & Brews Review: The Devil Crept In
One of my favorite types of tabletop games to play are cooperative games. Co-op games are designed for players to play against the game itself and team up to beat the game.

Basically, I had begun the frame of the owl and ended up with it being all funky looking. As I followed the … Continue reading The Last Stitch…?
I had a great update post planned for this week. While recovering from the seemingly endless "unstitching" that it will take to fix my epic failure, I decided I would spare you all from what would otherwise be a rant of frustration. (Also, I'd like to keep my posts safe for work and family friendly.) … Continue reading Cross-Stitching Tutorials & Free Patterns
One day I delved into a rabbit hole on Etsy and came across a bunch of really cool shops that had cross stitching patterns for sale & I thought to myself, "I can totally cross stitch." So I mentioned to Evil Husband (husband requested a moniker for my blog & was of his own volition,) … Continue reading The Struggle is Real: Cross Stitching 101
The only other hobby that I have actually stuck with, ever since my dad brought home the original Nintendo back in the 80s, is video games. Since then, I've enjoyed games on all sorts of platforms from PC to consoles. As a kid, I loved platform style games. Super Mario Brothers, Mega Man, Sonic, all … Continue reading Gamer Mom
