I’ve been hanging on to this SpareOne emergency phone trying to figure out how to review a product that I hope I never have to use. This week with all the tragedy surrounding the Oklahoma tornado damage is a great time to think about emergency preparedness. I grew up in a household that planned for […]


Today is my chicken baby girl’s birthday. She decided on a room makeover. Now, I don’t know how most people go about a room makeover, but I don’t have a few grand to throw at a 14 year old’s room, so we started small. I bought a few thrifted and clearance items to get us […]


If I could rip out walls and windows and re-do my entire kitchen I would. But I can’t, so I won’t. The next best thing is messing around with what I have. So be it. When we bought our house there was no hardware on any of the cabinets. Still isn’t. I’m going to change […]


I have a love hate relationship with laundry. Often I find the rhythmic back and forth of sorting, transferring from washer to dryer soothing. Somehow the love doesn’t extend to my large collection of blankets. I’ve found that a weekly (or so) trip to the local laundromat is a nice break for me. In an […]

His company has been flexible enough to allow him to drive on the […]


(If you’re looking for the blog hop post featuring the awesome giveaways, go here) It’s fall. The weather is windy and chilly. And that means one thing to me: nesting. I’m a winter hibernator in general, but one thing I continually enjoy through the cold months is cooking and baking. Posting some of my yummy […]


There are so many blog posts piling up in my head & schedule! I want to get it all out before I forget, but yesterday I tried to copycat an amazing soup from one of our favorite local diners. It turned out so well that we scraped the pot CLEAN! Having mentioned that in various […]


Once in a blue moon I get a hankering for some jewelry. If you’ve ever met or known me IRL, you know that I am not a high-maintenance¬† make-up and jewels type. It’s a pretty rare thing that I go searching for a piece of jewelry. The last time I got new jewelry was for […]
