My poor, neglected bloggitty blog blog.

I’ve been a bad blogger. I think there are extremes that lead to writer’s block, having nothing to write about and, the much more complicated opposite, having infinitely more to write about. These days, my life definitely falls into the latter category. There are 13 days until my wedding and every hour is filled with…

I went camping and lived to tell about it!

For years, my friend Kate has tried to drag me, against my will, into what she would call The Great Outdoors. By means of hiking, camping, or general wandering, she has used all means of mind powers to get me to accompany her on these escapades. For nearly five years I have declined countless invitations…

I’m already blushing…

Remember the dating rules blogs? Remember specifically the one that said not to have sex with these fools you were dating? (If you are new here, it is this one: http://wp.me/p2GXV8-58 ). Well things are about to get crazy so grab a glass of wine and let’s get down to business. In that blog I…

Love and War

When I was in high school my dad tried once to really get inside a young girl’s noggin. He was struggling to  understand WHY I was breaking up with my seemingly harmless boyfriend. I gave him my best synopsis and he stared intently into my eyes. When he repeated the scenario back to me, he…

The Piano Man

I had all of the starts of a  terrible, horrible,  no good, very bad day on May 18th (if you picked up on that literary reference, your childhood was awesome).  Somehow I had managed to break my car key IN HALF, thus locking all of my tools for work in my car. Now, when you…

This is just a tease…

There is a really, really stinking good blog coming your way soon. My blog brain is in la la land:) Forgive me, I am enjoying grace, happiness, and mushy gushy love like never before. Xoxo, Ash

The white owl and the Trampage

The last week has been I.N.S.A.N.E. After my last post about Sugar Baby, the little Maltese Aly and I found on the freeway, momentum has been non-stop. If we are going to be honest, the vortex started before that. Life is both nutty and wonderful.  A couple of months ago Aly, Kate and I took…

The Art of the Start Over

My girlfriend told me today about a friend of hers that just broke up with her boyfriend of seven years. They had started dating right out of high school and this poor girl was devastated by the concept of starting her life over as an adult.  After the break up she had literally gone on…

P.S. Mr. Nice Guy.

My friend Kevin summed up the Nice Guy confusion after the last post in one very clear thought, “… He is just befuddled by the ungodly Douchery of the men she does date especially when combined with the constant ‘I wish I could meet a *good* man’ bullshit.” Well, Kev, that door does seem to…

Dear, Mr. Nice Guy.

A while back I started blogging about dating. I know, I know… Sometimes I just laugh myself to sleep over that one too… Well over some time I have received some pretty cool feedback on those blogs and the success stories that have come from people following my (blind but well intended) advice. This week…

There is a right way and a wrong way…

I have had a few people tell me that they have been inspired by my big break up last year and have since dumped their mates in search of the dating bliss I have found. This is honestly one of the most horrifying things I have ever heard. While I am flattered (and somewhat mystified) that…
