Look at this fucking hipster golfer.

This is Rickie Fowler. I love him. I would watch golf if it were all hipsters and thugs. Can golf get some thugs? Let’s have a beer.

Mother’s Day recipes that don’t suck.

I love love love the idea of Mother’s Day brunch, but so does everybody else in the world and I don’t like dealing with crowds or waiting or food quality that suffers when a restaurant is super-busy. I’d rather stay home and make something from White Lace Inn, a little bed & breakfast in Door County, Wisconsin. I highly recommend one of the French toasts or egg bakes, because you assemble them the night before, so all you have to do on Mother’s Day is put something in the oven. I’m making my own version of the Spicy 3-Cheese Cornbread Egg Bake, and I’ll post a recipe if it’s good. Also don’t forget the mimosas.

I love maxi skirts.

I assume you’ve seen that Ann Taylor ballet maxi skirt that’s everywhere lately? It’s absolutely beautiful but, in my opinion, $176 is way too expensive even with the current 30% off offer. It’s also dry clean only. Do people still buy dry clean only stuff? I try to avoid it as much as possible for all things except, say, wedding dresses.

I found a good alternative. Here is a sort of similar look at a much better price and in a lower-maintenance fabric — the Billabong Long Way Tiered Maxi Skirt.

The Ann Taylor skirt is elegant and this is hippie, which means I love it. It’s also $46, machine washable, and perfect for sitting on the ground at the park eating sandwiches and wrangling toddlers, which, if you ask me, is when you want to wear a maxi skirt. Sorry for party shopping.

I can affect the game.

White Sox pitcher Chris Sale is loading the bases as we speak and I’m teaching Soren that, through some type of metaphysical awesomeness I don’t understand, we can affect the outcome of a sporting event that is occurring 1,000 miles away from us. He’s jumping on the couch screaming, “GO CHRIS SALE!” And I might be doing the same thing.

If you like him so much, why don’t you marry him?

Congratulations to Luke Harangody and ESPN on their recent engagement! It looks like the wedding plans are going well, and I like the green Lacoste towels on your registry!

ETA: I just received word that my boyfriend Jon Garland signed a one-year deal with the Diamondbacks. I do not approve of him hanging out with such a team (stay away from Eric Byrnes!), but at least this will bring him to Denver.
