Spring has Sprung!


I questioned Mother Nature on what was going on.  Why we were to deal with such a hard winter.  Late into March winter held on with a mighty grip, dare I say it is over?   The rebirth has begun.  Even though the odd snow bank still hides in the shadows, the spring flowers are beginning to bloom and the robins are back to nest. Spring is an amazing time of year, to sit back watch how things so dormant come back to life is a treat. And one that … [Read more...]

Tupperware Calling: Week 1

Measuring Combo

First, a little bit of background. I don't recall just how old I was, 12 maybe. But I decided that I wanted to sign up and sell Tupperware... so I did. I was the YOUNGEST person to sell (at that time) and I did ok, for a kid. But as kids often do, I moved on. Fast forward 10 years, and I signed up again. Pre kids, pre blog... pre-actual adult hood. I mostly did it for the discount. But last week I signed up to be a Tupperware … [Read more...]

A Dishcloth a Day #Knitting


I love my knitting.  Honestly... there is nothing that makes me feel more relaxed then sitting down with my needles and knitting up a dishcloth.  I don't have to think about it...it's not hard work.  It's brainless entertainment to keep my hands busy while I try and slow down my brain after a busy day.  Knitting means a lot to me. I've given myself a challenge, just a small one. But a challenge non the less. I have plans to go to my local … [Read more...]

That First Day….. Monster High {Giveaway}

monster high

When I was eleven I moved across the country.  Alone. Well, not really alone, I left my home with my Mother, step father and sister, brother and grandmother and went to live with my Dad.  It was an adventure. I was less then pleasant to live with at the time (as many 'tweens can be at that age) and I didn't like the rules... so off I went to live with my Dad. We hadn't seen each other in many years, and he welcomed me with open arms.  I … [Read more...]

Happy With Less

apple sauce

There is a shift happening.  I see it going on around me, yes...even on my Facebook wall.  People are reverting back to the way things used to be done...  Happy with less. Last night, after a bountyful Easter dinner with my family, I lay down with my youngest son and put him to sleep... It didn't take long.  Between the sugar crash and the lack of sleep from the night before, I only had to snuggle with him for a short time before he was off to … [Read more...]

  Taco Tuesday is a meal my family enjoys more often then Tuesdays that roll around.  It's fast, it's delicious and EVERYBODY cleans their plate.  Barely a day goes by that someone doesn't ask for tacos for dinner. It's usually my oldest... and he's game for just about anything as long as it's stuffed inside a taco shell.  My picky eater even cheers on taco night, it's one dinner I know I won't hear complaints over. Right now, when … [Read more...]
