Dating Around Returns For Second Season

I remember seeing a few months ago that a new season was in the works, but having only seen that one source, I didn’t believe it until now. Netflix’s underrated dating show “Dating Around” is officially back on track. Last year, we fell in love with the series after the new year in an unexpected way. First off, it was nothing like the Bachelor franchise, even though we love the show. There weren’t any gimmicks, competitions or doubting whether someone was there for the right reasons.

Instead, “Dating Around” is about something we’re all too familiar with: the first date. I wrote an entire review about it [here]. It’s unclear when the second season will appear in our queues, but it is confirmed that it has already been filmed and wrapped set in the city of New Orleans. The series will continue on its same format and with six episodes just like before.

Growing up, Monopoly was one of my favorite childhood games. I loved it even more when I could play it alongside with one of my favorite fast food chains. There was never a chance of my family and I ever winning, but it was fun to try or at least still collect the pieces. I always knew how seriously people would take McDonalds Monopoly, but never read up on the scandal that took place. I’m really excited to see this all go down on HBO when the six-part series debuts February 3rd.

“Don’t Be A Dick About It” Trailer

In things that made me laugh out loud today… this movie trailer about two brothers. The trailer alone wasn’t long enough for me because I was ready to consume this documentary right off the bat. Kevin and I definitely don’t have a sibling relationship like these two, but I think we’re quite quirky in our own ways. We also somehow manage to irritate each other over the dumbest things, but like my mother says – “you can’t get rid of your brother.”

A Collection Part 56

Somehow we’ve really nailed the timing of these posts and every time we’re due for one it’s right around New Year’s! But if I’m being honest, the New Year is when I’m feeling my most creative and inspired. These photographs represent that and my current state of feelings. I can’t believe this is the 56th post for “A Collection!” It’s not a significant number by any means; I’m just amazed we’ve had this many.

I love going back and visiting A Collection 1-10 or 10-20 because even those represent a much different time than how I feel presently. In a way, these happen to be my own personal journals, but written in the form of other people’s photos.

May your new year and new decade be full of life, simplicity, and joy.

Yow Yow’s Top 10 Posts of 2019

Happy New Year everyone! This is still one of those posts that is such a wild card to me every year. For as long as I’ve had Yow Yow! you would think that I would know better about what types of posts do well and don’t. After 11 years, I still haven’t cracked it and I think that’s because we’ve changed so much over the years.

Here is your top 10 from 2019:

End of Year Roundup

It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m enjoying such a peaceful day back home in San Francisco. I woke up this morning with a tickle in my throat so I’m still debating if evening plans are in the cards for me. Last year, I was in Seattle and attended a house party of one of my best friends. Since I missed my 10 year high school reunion, this was our version of it! While last year got a little bit rowdy, there’s something really special about the idea of having a quiet night in. Of course, if you know me, then you know we have these nights all the time! I am hydrating up because I actually think it could be lovely to venture out to a house party tonight and in a new dress! It will likely be a last minute decision!

Since we’re not only reaching the end of 2019 and the end of a decade, I’m loving everyone’s round up posts. Here a just a couple of my favorites that I’m sharing with you all!
