Lip Sync Battle

Drinking the Whole Bottle is a metaphor for life – and a confession… but mostly a metaphor. It’s about tasting it all, trying everything at least once, and enjoying every last drop of life. I’d say through most of my life I’ve done a good job of living this way and being abroad has made it even easier. Every weekend is a chance to live out loud. Every day a possibility for fun. But there is no time I have seen the DTWB...

And They Danced: How Jenuary Jenanigans Came to a Close

With Jenuary 2015 in the books, my birthday Jenanigans (yes, I like inserting my name into regular words) have officially come to a close until 2016 but not without one last laugh, and a good one at that. So if you are indeed in need of a solid, belly chuckle, hit PLAY and share in the silly magic of Jenuary. And if you do laugh – even a little – share with your friends… cause why should we have all the...

To keep the intro short I’ll answer some rapid fire questions. What is this? A butt load of gift ideas to help with your holiday shopping What could I expect to find here – I hate finding gift guides that have really expensive gifts? You’ll find gift...

Olympics of Gobble Proportions

(As published on Women Who Live on Rocks.)  As do other expats, we have to pick and choose the holidays we go home for; we can’t have ’em all. Christmas is mine. Maybe someday, if we live further away, I’ll have to miss it, but for now – living on a rock that is only a 4-hour flight home – expect me home for the holidays and have a glass of coquito* waiting for me by the Christmas pine. What...

6 "Get Out" Songs for Teachers to Mentally Sing When Kicking a Student Out

For many of my dear friends, it is that time of year. Yes, teachers, I am talking to you. And yes… school is starting – or worse – has started. I feel your pain. As a teacher myself (though I haven’t been in the classroom for a few years now), I know that teaching is for those with big heart… and patience… and grace… and humor… and courage… and high barometers of all things gross… and – sorry, I’ll move...

Lip Sync Drive By: Burn

Can’t think of a better way to wish you a Happy Friday!!!   This started out as an extended joke. About a month ago, all of our DR-buddies got together for a Lip Sync Battle Party at the infamous (amongst us) Kury Rooftop and since our friends are AWESOME(!) we had a great turn out with over 20 performances. That night, decided on by equal parts judge votes and audience votes, our friend Mike, in his black miniskirt and gray...

What’s On Tap This Month – NOVEMEBER (Christmas Edition)

Note: All opinions stated on monthly What’s on Tap posts are my honest opinion. Sponsored reviews can be submitted for review but DTWB only promotes products I genuinely like. Since this is the season of giving, sharing and helping, I decided to skip my usual Tap this month and instead share this list as a way to help my fellow (wo)/man with the What-do-I-give-my-(fill in blank)-for-Christmas Blues. You’ll notice that I’m giving you more than enough time to order, ship, and wrap...

New Year’s 2013: Make Your Life’s To Do List

I figured since I’ve talked about my Life’s To Do List before, that I’d share it with you, along with the basics of how to make a bucket list, to help you get started on one for the New Year. Remember, this list is ever evolving and changing. I add things. I delete things. In my physical, Life’s To Do List Journal, I keep pictures and memorabilia from things I have checked off. Your list should serve as a reminder...
