I am having a love affair with my waffle iron. It’s a tried-and-true old Black and Decker passed down to me from my mother-in-law. Because the waffle iron and I are getting along so well when it comes to traditional waffles, I thought I’d try something quite untraditional — stuffed waffles.

Boy, do I love funny typos. But this one is truly heinous.
Had I read this script on air, it would have caused me massive embarrassment. The kind of embarrassment that lands you on YouTube for millions of people to laugh at.
When it comes to summer cooking, the easier the recipe the better, right? This fits the bill. The sweet potatoes provide a generous dose of vitamin A, which is good for the eyes and skin. But perhaps more importantly, most kids will actually want to eat it.
I can’t believe this myself — but I have saved a chopstick wrapper for about 7 or 8 years now.
Why? Because it is a typo lover’s dream come true. This thing is hilarious. It is littered with ridiculous mistakes.
Two years ago, handling babies — especially newborns — made me nervous. Now, I would snatch one out of another woman’s cart at the grocery store for a quick cuddle if I knew I wouldn’t get hauled off to jail.

I mentioned the thing I have for magazines, right? Well, here’s what I love even more: finding a glaring typographical error on the page of a magazine. Publications which I’m sure have gobs of editors to catch such mistakes.
Well, here it is — May 20. My last day in the working world.
How did today get here so quickly? When my boss and I agreed on my last day, May 20 seemed so far off. Then again, it seems like my two-year-old was just born last month. Is a warped sense of time another one of those lingering post-pregnancy side effects no one ever talks about?
I am a crybaby.
There. I said it. When something sets me off, the waterworks just don’t stop. I don’t really get the big, heaving sobs. My tear ducts just suddenly morph into mini waterfalls.
Live large, on a small budget. Who doesn’t want to do that these days?
10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget comes from the writers of Wise Bread — a personal finance blog that’s as much a daily addiction as my morning pot of coffee.
It’s finally here. I’m so excited my home on the Internet has finally come to life. But I’m WAY more excited that you’re here.
