Guest Post: Guilty Pleasures

Amanda hails from one of my favorite home decor & renovation blogs, Love & Renovations. (I swear they’re going to be the next Young House Love!) I was extremely excited when she agreed to write a guest post…and was very pleasantly surprised to discover that she is a closet video game geek! Here, she writes about three of her favorite video games, the last of which I have never heard of and am quite tempted to play myself after reading her glowing review! Enjoy! When Jenny first said she was looking for guest bloggers while she was out having her…

Wedding Invites & Favors of the Year [Super Mario FTW!]

I know I used to blog for a wedding community, but it’s been more than 3.5 years since my wedding and frankly, the subject just doesn’t interest me much anymore. BUT. Once in a while I come across pictures from certain weddings and I can’t help but think, ‘DANG! Why didn’t we think of that? If only we were getting married again…’ (FYI, J and I have no intention whatsoever of renewing our vows. The first time around was stressful enough.) Esther and Ryan’s wedding is one prime example.

Today, I am the featured blogger over at the BlogAds Blog! I have never been interviewed for anything like this before so I’m pretty excited.

The Konami Code Meets “The Last Supper”

I don’t think that I will ever forget the Konami Code.  Do you remember it? (As a Christian, I don’t find this spoof offensive at all. Da Vinci might, but me, no. I’m pretty certain that God has a good sense of humor, and that Jesus himself would have enjoyed video games if they were around during His time. :-)) Via Geeks Are Sexy. P.S. — Tomorrow is the last day to enter the NOVICA Gift Card giveaway! Have you entered yet?…

The Four Types of Mario Party Participants

In our pre-baby days, J and I used to host epic Mario Party game nights. Seeing this sure brings back some great memories… (And I think that the same comic can be applied to Mario Kart as well, no?)   J and I also used to party until 6am like we were eternal college students. But at least with Mario Party, we can look forward to the experience with our kids as they get older. Via EPICponyz.…
