Sugar Break

So this post is going to be a little all over the place. I feel like I haven’t talked to you guys, like about life stuff, for a good while. It’s been all business here for far too long. If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat you might be all caught up on some of my adventures, but if not, let’s chat…starting with my drink for the summer, along with all the other basic b’s out there…ROSÉ! I haven’t decided if I will take my Whispering Angel into the fall months, or trade it in until next summer…thoughts?

Love touches our lives in many ways. When I was young I was in “love” many times.  Actually, I don’t know if it was love, but it was definitely “?”. I ?’d many people. Back then juvenile correspondence came in the form of the “note”. Usually folded in crazy ways,...

Kid Germs

I am sure a lot of you reading this are moms.  Even if you aren’t, I would imagine you have nieces and nephews, or the random neighbor child that lives across the street always trying to sell you stuff. Now that we are square on that… Let’s talk germs. I’m...

Hot Chocolate on a Stick

This Hot Chocolate on a stick is the perfect sweet Valentine’s treat! We all have our own little idiosyncrasies.  They say this is what makes us an “individual”…or in layman’s terms, makes us a little freaky. Most of us are quiet oddballs, while others are very public…case in point:  Tuesday...

Frizz head/Spongehead

Hair…ugh.  My hair is the bane of my existence.   I was blessed with sort-of, but not-really curly hair.   It is thin-ish, but also coarse-ish.  It doesn’t have an identity. It’s every bad hair day you have ever experienced all rolled into one. When I was young it was bad.  Real...

Avalanche Bars

This deliciously addictive treat was introduced to me at a place called The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.  Ever been there?  They have shelves and shelves of delicious looking candy apples and homemade fudge that I would always be THIS close to buying…but being a bit of a cheapskate I always...

Proceed with Caution

Is there such a thing as too sweet?  Really? I have heard this time and time again and it makes me feel like my brain is malfunctioning.  I must be wired differently than those who speak such strange phrases.  I need to check my back panel and re-wire, like that...

Death by Vanilla

So I am a little obsessed with Pop Culture. I get anxiety if my Entertainment Weekly is not delivered on Fridays.  I read Perez Hilton. I. Watch. The. Hills. The DVR has become an indispensable electronic in our house.  When everyone else is in bed it becomes my late night...

Lego Crazy

 If you have a child you know Legos.   My kids LOVE them.  They can’t get enough.   As a parent, I love them too; they can occupy my boys creativity and imagination for hours.   As a mom anything that will keep your kids quiet while engaging their brain, when you’re reading...

Frenemies and Granola Bars

I have a problem. Serious? Well, that depends. My problem comes in the form of a cotton/spandex blend. My black yoga pants. They are what one would call a “frenemy”. They pretend to be on your side, make you feel good and then stab you in the back when you...

Today, for me, is the official “first day” of the New Year. Weekend is over; no more parties, kids are back in school, real life has now set in, and it is only a matter of time before AMEX sends me my Christmas bill. Ouch! But, with the New Year...

"You’ll shoot your eye out"

Well, I couldn’t resist making these cookies. They weren’t for an order, just for my own personal amusement. A Christmas Story has long been my favorite holiday movie, as I am sure many of yours. I have seen this movie no less than 3,762 times. Easily. I am the dork...
