Two Men Were Arrested In Idaho For Talking About Nickelback

I know that headline makes it seem like Idaho has become a totalitarian state where the mere utterance of the name of a reviled Canadian rock band is a jailable offence, but fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), that's not exactly the case.

Found: The Most Perfect Mason Jar Of Them All

Like any twenty-something middle class white woman with a Pinterest account, I love mason jars. I want to organize and compartmentalize my entire life in a collection of artfully arranged mason jars.

10 Life-Changing Cleaning & Organizing Tips For People With ADD

For pretty much my whole life, I've been a huge slob. We're talking gigantic piles of clothes on the floor, dirty dishes all over the house, disgusting bathroom, "What is a duster and how do you use it?" levels of slobbery. I have ADD, and I always found it nearly impossible to focus long enough…

What’s The Difference Between A Horse And A Playground? Nothing, If You’re A Baby Goat

Reason #4,582 I need a baby goat (or a hundred baby goats, ideally) ASAP: through the eyes of a baby goat, everything is a piece of playground equipment. Even, for example, a very large horse that is trying to take a nap. And isn't that a great way to look at the world? […

For now,…

7 Reasons You Should Try Making Your Own Makeup

My best friend has been on a bit of a homesteading, make-everything-yourself kick lately. Every time I call her and ask what she's doing, she replies with, "Oh, just whipping up a fresh batch of nut butter!" or "Melting some coconut oil to make my own deodorant. Want me to make some for…

5 Alter Egos That Only Come Out When I Listen To Country Music

My favorite thing about country music is the focus on storytelling. Country songs are full of vivid characters and tales of heartbreak and hi-jinks.
