I Ain’t Scared of no Sauce Pan

Posted on

I am not much of a cooker. I never cook. I think we’ve talked about this. And basically every time I cook I write a blog post about it so here goes.

I COOKED DINNER! AND IT WAS GOOD. WOOOOOO.

Some back story. I went vegetarian last November. I actually TRIED to go vegan but cheese.

I just can’t quit you.

I have gone vegetarian before, the last time was when I was pregnant with Jones. And it pissed Casey off to no end because, in his words, he doesn’t have any ‘go to’ vegetarian dinners. After three months of culinary mutiny, I caved and went back to eating meat. And it just didn’t appeal to me at all.

AMPFUSHAH – Auditioning for the Voice – Friday HAPPY HOUR

Posted on

As you may or may not know, I like to do this little thing called sing. I went to school for musical theater, spent many years as the lead singer for a band, and now drink too much and attempt Total Eclipse of the Heart on karaoke with alarming regularity.

I never wanted fame. I never wanted fortune. I never wanted groupies. I just wanted to do what I love – perform. Not even singing. Performing. Great singers are a dime a dozen, as so many reality TV shows have shown us. What is missing from most of them is that certain spark. That shiny, sparkly something that makes you interested. And you can’t fake that, and it can’t be taught. You either have it or you don’t.

And I’m not sure if I do or not, but by gosh golly am I going to march my ass to New York City and find out.

Sunday, February 17th at 7:00 am, my ass will be at the Javits Convention Center, ready to give it all I got.

Casey bravely powering through Day 6.

Posted on

We went back and forth over whether to do 5 days of our cleanse or 7. I was nervous about doing 7, not that I think we couldn’t do it, but because I have a 6:30 am flight Monday morning, heading to a three day work trip. My transition to solid foods should be…interesting.

BUT! We went with ‘No Excuses!’ and here we are. Then I saw the 2:00 juice recipe. ICK. Total ick. If you have to CHASE YOUR JUICE with an orange, something is wrong. Here is Casey chugging his. If you don’t hear from me again soon, it killed me.

Yours in wheat grass,
Bethany

Yes, I’m Doing a Juice Cleanse. Now Can We Stop Talking About it?

Posted on

Just kidding! Let’s totally talk about it!

I’ve been doing a juice cleanse for the past 4 full days, and they way people are carrying on you would think that I’ve decided to switch to a dead bug diet. People’s reactions range from everything to ‘Why in the world would you do THAT?’ to ‘I would rather eat poop’ to ‘Can I borrow $20?’

I don’t know why anyone is shocked by this. I have been slowly morphing into a homemade granola making, organic-only shopping, non meat eating hippy. Ever since I decided to embrace natural child birth and buy an electric car, my path has been clear. And soon or later, ya, it was going to end in a juice cleanse.

And here we are.

How to Make a Loyal Customer for Life. For Realsies.

Providing excellent customer service is not easy. Companies are big and fractured, service reps are often overworked and dealing with angry customers all day, consumers can be exceedingly hard to please (especially in the age of social media), so ya, having it all come together can be tough.

But when you can get it together, when it all gels, you have created not just a loyal customer, but one who will take to her blog to sing the praises of two particular companies – Chevrolet Volt and Rohrich Chevrolet in Pittsburgh.

Let me break it down.
