Cheesecakes have always been one of those desserts that I’ve loved from the time I was a child. I remember going to my grandma’s house, and she would often have one ready to go for dessert after we’d all eaten dinner. As I grew up, one of the first desserts that I made on my own was a cheesecake from a recipe book that I’d found. I’d make two or three variations for family cookouts, and they always went over very well.

From the time we met in early 2007, my husband Anthony and I have always enjoyed comedy as a way to relieve some of our day-to-day stress and get some good laughs. From looking up funny animal videos, ‘stupid people’ clips, and whatever specials are on Netflix, comedy is a large part of our daily lives.
On February 11, I got the unforgettable experience of seeing AFI perform in Atlanta. By now, if you visit here often, you probably know that AFI is my favorite band based on the frequency of them being mentioned in some way throughout my posts. When tour dates were announced, there were three option that I narrowed it down to based on proximity to Ohio: Chicago, Washington DC, and Atlanta. Beings the dates listed were for late January and February, Chicago was automatically out. I mean, why would I go somewhere colder than Ohio when I knew I would be spending a great deal of time outside? With a lot of the political stuff going on right now, I really didn’t want to venture into DC alone. That left me with Atlanta…slightly further, but a good 15-20 degrees warmer. It seemed like the most logical choice after weighing out the pros and cons.
With the release of the new AFI album on January 20, there has been a lot of mixed thoughts and feelings on it vocalized throughout the fan pages. It seems to be either a love or hate thing with not a whole lot of in-between. There have been a lot of comments on how AFI should go back to how they were in the early 2000’s, and even the 90’s. (Before reading further, let me say that I do understand that everybody has their own opinion and I respect that.)
Dog toys have a reputation for not lasting long in our house. The softer the toy, the shorter their lifespan. Rubber balls get plucked into tiny little pieces within days, and anything with a squeaker gets destroyed until it squeaks no more. Add anything ‘stuffed’ to the mix, and it doesn’t stand a chance…
