Hollywood Game Night

This show totally cracks me up. It’s basically a bunch of celebrities getting hammered and playing games together. I love seeing their real personalities come out. It is so funny!


Ice Pop Molds

I just got these ice pop molds last week, so I am still playing around with them, but here is one recipe that turned out great! 

Tropical Ice Pops: Combine 12 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt, 3/4 cup pineapple juice, and 1/4 cup shredded coconut. Pour into ice pop molds. Freeze for 4-6 hours. Enjoy! Makes 3 ice pops.

Question of the Day

What’s the solution for almost all problems?



  1. I really love this quote and think it’s so true:

    “The cure for anything is salt water – tears, sweat, or the sea.”
    -Isak Dinesen

    99% of the time a good cry, a hard workout, or some relaxation by the beach will combat whatever negative emotions I may be feeling.

  2. OMG, Hollywood Game Night is hilarious! We started watching it this past spring when my husband’s BFF was actually on it (and won $25K, no big whoop). Now we look forward to laughing and seeing which celebrities are dumb and which are smart. Spoiler: Tara Lipinski and Jamie Pressley are idiots.

  3. I’ve made those tropical ice pops and yes, they are amazing!

    I’ve read and believe that the cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears or the sea.

  4. Hollywood Game Night!! Actually a guy I knew from college was on that show and won! He’s from my hometown and was featured on the news and everything. Super nice guy. And yeah it’s hilarious!

  5. I have to say that my labradoodle Duncan cures everything! I love that little guy so much….I’m already stressing about going on vacation and having to sleep 4 nights without his furry little self next to me….

    Add in a glass of wine and some dark chocolate or fresh brewed coffee and a warm chocolate chip cookie and life is solved!

  6. the solution to all problems is something with 4 legs and fur! (for me my kitty, but a neighborhood dog or the goats down the street have the same effect).

    p.s. I’ve tried the avocado saver and didn’t find it to be better than just wrapping up the half with the pit in a bit of saran wrap – cut side up seems to last longer…

  7. That cookie pie amazingness is from Averie Cooks. I just made her soft batch cream cheese chocolate chip cookies, and I can now say they’ll be my go to cookie recipe. They came out so well! And they stayed nice and soft a day later 🙂

  8. Tina-the chemicals used to decaffeinate coffee are more harmful than the caffeine itself,if you use organic decaf its a way healthier solution for you and also since you are breast feeding.

  9. Who are these crazy people who have avocado leftover in order to utilize that gadget?? ( :

    I agree with the above poster Jodi that the furry ones are a good solution for most any problem! And the one about sweat, salt or tears. That is pretty spot on too.

  10. ha, you nailed it with the chocolate. That makes everything better! Although you could add nut butters to that list as well 😉

  11. Tina, thank you for linking up my M&M Cookie Pie! You’re so sweet – I wish I could give you a big piece 🙂 Hope you’re doing great and having a wonderful summer (looks that way based on your IG feed that I watch!) 🙂
