  I love our pets greatly. They are very much members of our family. There is nothing I wouldn't do for them. Sadly a few of our pets have a few "quirks" that I don't really care for. Take for example our oldest cat, Velcro. He tends to urinate on the carpet. Usually its around my desk or near the sliding glass doors. The vet doesn't find a … [More...]

Effortless Meals from Walmart & Coca Cola

Walmart Effortless Meals

  I recently re-joined the "rat race". It's only a part time job but I'm still trying to figure out how to balance working, my blog, keeping my home clean and keeping up with my family. Some days I don't know if I'm "coming or going". Being a stay at home/work from home mom all these years meant that I almost always had plenty of time to … [More...]

Affordable and Trendy Designer Handbags from Jamison Parker

Lexi 1

  Does your heart skip a beat when you lay your eyes on a beautiful handbag? I know many women, my teenager daughter included, who go crazy for the latest designer handbags. Their handbags are as important to them as rare sports memorabilia is to a man - maybe more so. LOL! I'm not not a collector of designer handbags, however I have come … [More...]

  I have mentioned many times on my blog that we live on a condo (aka - shoe box). I grew up in a house and dream of the day we can move from here and have a house again. I'm not a fan of condo living. Although I do like my neighbors I just don't like having people living under me, across from me, diagonal fro me and next to me. I can … [More...]

Join Auntie Anne’s & Alex’s Lemonade Stand to help fight childhood cancer

  Cancer is an ugly word. Unless it's your zodiac sign no one ever wants to utter that word. Cancer is cruel. It has no limits and knows no boundaries. It doesn't care if you are young or old, black or white, Italian or Irish, rich or poor. Cancer can strike anyone, anywhere at anytime. Cancer has touched my life over the years. My grandfather … [More...]

Are you ready for a Summer Shape Up? (Giveaway ends 8/9/14)

BALANCE BAR WELCOMES SUMMER WITH SHAPE UP CHALLENGE

  I know that I'm seriously out of shape. Being overweight is a dead giveaway, but not all overweight people are out of shape. I know plenty of overweight men and women who are in awesome shape and can accomplish things that people half their size can't do. I realized I was really out of shape when I started back to work. I recently started … [More...]

My Man is a Loser “Movie Night In” Giveaway (ends 8/1/14)

My Man is a Loser Poster

  Opening in select theaters today (July 25, 2014) is the comedy film My Man is a Loser. That is certainly an interesting title. My Man is a Loser stars John Stamos, Michael Rapaport and Bryan Callen. I could be wrong but I think this is the first time John Stamos has been on the big screen. I had such a crush on him back when he appeared … [More...]

Amazing Visual Math

  I hate to say this but it will be time to shift our thoughts from lounging by the beach, hanging out at the pool and enjoying the lazy days of summer to prepping for back to school. My kids are ready to go back. They are pretty bored this summer because we haven't been able to go anywhere or do anything except on the weekends. I hate to say … [More...]

Imagine a world without oceans…

  Imagine if you could for just a few moments what life would be like without our oceans. You wouldn't be able to spend lazy summer days lounging on the beach. You couldn't enjoy your favorite seafood dishes. You would not be able to take a cruise down to the Caribbean. But there is so many more repercussions to an ocean-less world aside the … [More...]

Celebrity Spokespeople vs. REAL People

Cherry red summer apple isolated on white

  Do you ever watch television and see a celebrity pushing a product or service and wonder "Why him/her?" For example, Tommy Lee Jones promoting¬†Ameriprise Financial and Catherine Zeta-Jones trying to get you to sign up for T-Mobile. I wouldn't associate these people with the things they are trying to sell you. In fact, I am never swayed by celebrity … [More...]

For example, February 28, 2014 is National Pancake Day. This coming Saturday (January 4, 2014) is National Spaghetti Day. There are also weekly and monthly observances.

A look back at 2013

2013

  With the dawn of a new year hours away I thought I would take this time to look back on 2013 and reflect on it's ups and downs. 2013 flew by - literally. I think this was the quickest year I have ever experienced. I can still vividly remember watching all the New Year's festivities on TV last year. It seems like only yesterday. I know that is an … [More...]
