  Who doesn't love a good party? Great music, yummy food, fabulous friends... I love it all. Every now and then people host parties that are a bit more extraordinary that ordinary parties. They turn out to be a full blown celebration. Such parties would include a Sweet 16 party, wedding reception or graduation party. Have you ever thrown a … [More...]

Get a great night’s sleep with a Sealy Posturepedic Pillow (giveaway ends 2/22/16)

Sealy Posturepedic Maintains Shape Pillow With DACRON® Fiber pillow

  When it comes to getting a good night's sleep, it's not as easy for me as I'd like it to be. I love sleep. I would sleep all morning long if I was left alone. I could easily sleep until noon, no matter what time I went to bed the night before. Sadly I can't do that. I need to be at work by 7:00 AM (I am so NOT a "morning person"). Getting … [More...]

SW-Stickers-6Up-White (1)

  Have you seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet? My husband and I FINALLY saw it last week for the 20th Anniversary of our first date (we went out to breakfast than the movie). I felt like we were the last people on the face of the Earth to see the film. Even the little kids I work with have seen it upwards of five times already! Sadly, the … [More...]

Carmex Moisture Plus “Glam Up Your Look!”

carmex lip balm samples

  I honestly don't mind the winter months that much. I freak out when I have to drive in snow, but other than that, I'm OK with the harsh, cold, winter weather. I do very much mind how the winter air dries out my skin. I have to slather on moisturizer all day long and a couple of times at night. Currently I have some split skin on two fingers. … [More...]

Citizen Watches – great gift ideas for men and women

Shilouette Watch

  Gift giving is hard enough as it is without adding the extra pressure of finding the "perfect gift." It's bad enough we had to find great gifts for friends and loved ones, but now we have to find an even more special gift for your favorite Valentine. One gift idea that I used to rely on year ago was watches. Before smartphones people used to … [More...]

“Supernatural Comfort” is just a click away with GhostBed

PHOTO SOURCE: GhostBed

  When it comes to getting a good night's sleep, my husband and I have no clue what that is like. You see... we don't have a bedroom to call our own. We have to sleep in the living room on a sofa bed. It's next to impossible to get a good night's sleep on a sofa bed. We live in a one bedroom condo. When our daughter was born we converted the … [More...]

Stuffed Animals that Teach Kids a Lesson

US Pouty Pig

  I might be an adult, but that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate soft, snugly, adorable things. I have a nice collection of stuffed animals that are MINE. Not only do I love to look at them but occasionally I'll snuggle with one in bed. I find it very soothing and comforting. I'm sure a lot of that stems from my childhood. Growing up I had … [More...]

  Sleep... it's a wonderful thing. I love to sleep. Some days there is nothing better then snugling up under a soft comforter and resting your head on a comfy pillow. Sadly getting comfortable in our bed is easier said than done. My husband and I sleep on a sofa bed. Fourteen years ago we gave up the bedroom for our kids. We originally … [More...]

  Valentine's Day is coming up and I have to admit that my husband and I don't have any plans as of yet. My husband wants to go out and do something special on Saturday night (Valentine's Day is a Sunday this year - and the Walking Dead returns - we can't miss that! LOL!). He keeps asking me what "I" want to do (he's not giving me any feedback on … [More...]

Farewell to Frosty…

Our daughter (who is now 17) enjoying our friend Frosty - long before he started to fall apart - literally.

  I had a wonderful childhood. My mom and dad made a wonderful life for me. Because of that I have very fond memories of when I was little. FYI... My mom and dad were my paternal grandparents. I was raised by them. Even though they were not biologically my parents I they raised me from when I was a toddler. They always have been - and always … [More...]

My husband posted on his own Facebook page how "hugs were not an option" referencing our relative who passed away. Its true. It didn't matter who you were - friend or relative - our deceased loved one always hugged everyone. Even the first time I met him he … [More...]

Dear Magazine Publishers…

Magazines

  I love to read. Sadly I don't always have the time to pick up a book and read it from cover to cover. There are days I'm lucky if I can read a few pages let alone a chapter or two. That is why I enjoy reading magazines. I am able to read articles in a matter of minutes, plus I find a lot of great recipes and ideas for around the home. I … [More...]
