Miss Manners: Meet the Family

This past weekend, my bf invited me to have Easter dinner with his family. After already weaseling my way out of both Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, I knew I was going to have to come up with a GOOD excuse this time. Unfortunately, he caught me off guard.

The Weekly Wrap Up: What a Freaking Week!

Big week. Huge. First was St. Patrick's Day. Then we spoke to both the Millionaire Matchmaker and last year's Top Chef, Stephanie Izard (who are both much better female role models than some people out there).

Miss Manners: Who Pays?

Last weekend I went out to lunch with a male friend. The food was excellent and there wasn’t a dull moment in the conversation, however, when the check arrived (which the waiter was very careful to put in the center of the table, I might add), everything stopped.
