About Me

This blog is a jump that I've been waiting to take. Over the past few months I've been reading about how to start a blog, what to write about, and where to start the journey. So, here I am - jumping in with both feet.


Let's become acquainted!  I'm in my 30's, living on an island in the Atlantic Ocean.  I love the rocky beaches, the stunning sunsets, and exploring hidden parts of this land that I call home. Want to know where a waterfall is - I've got directions! (I've seen more than I've fallen into - I swear :P) Want to hike or see the small towns/communities within a days drive to and from St. John's - I've got you covered! Local eats?  OMFG - yes!

These are some of the posts that you can expect in this blog - my adventures, love for coffee, horror/mystery pop culture, and the consumption of all that I enjoy (not just food, but also novels, DIY projects, podcasts, etc.).  It will be a happy little tornado of everything "Jen". I'll start off trying to post once a week, and we'll see where that takes us.

Feel free to leave comments and suggestions on what you want to see - I'd love to hear from you!

Sci-Fi on the Rock

Hi folks,

Last weekend myself and Mandi attended, and hosted an event and panel at this years Sci-Fi on the Rock for our Welcome to Deadhouse Goosebumps book club (#GBCGhostNextDoor on Twitter).


This adventure all started with suggestions from our spouses. So, we came up with a few ideas, went through the application process and waited. We are new to the event and panelist, and our YouTube book club is under a year old - so we figured that we didn't have much of a shot of being accepted.  Then the email came. We were accepted as panelist. For both ideas that we submitted.  Oh snap! Oh snap! OH SNAP!

Planning the panels was super fun.  We love the Goosebumps series and we were able to create a plan that we were both happy with.  The "Reader Beware, You Choose the Scare!" event was first - it was the first evening of the event, and scheduled to be 2 hours long. Here we read through the Diary of the Mad Mummy, and backtracked 4 times to get 4 different endings.  We had antic…

Rewind Tour - 2018

We've been having a few throwback tours hitting the island in the past few years.  This year's tour being The Rewind Tour - and it didn't disappoint!

I'll take this post back to last year when we attended the first throwback tour - I Love The 90's tour.  This concert was amazing!  Heading the show was Salt-n-Peppa. And other acts included Rob Base, Color Me Badd, All-4-One, one member of the C&C Music Factory, Biz Markie and Young MC. The attending crowd could be spotted around the town quite easily before and after the concert as most concert-goers were dawning neon from head to toe, crimped big hair, and other 90's fashions.

While the music was fantastic at the I Love The 90's tour, I was disappointed that there was no merchandise for sale. I believe here is where I raise my hand and admit that I have a concert t-shirt collection, right?  I had my heart set on adding a Salt-N-Peppa t-shirt to my collection.

Well, this year, the concert folks learned a…
