*HAPPY HAPPY UPDATE: The Germantown has changed their membership policies effective immediately!  All families are now included! *   I’m really angry this morning. I’ve been angry all night actually. A high school friend that I keep up with on facebook has been denied a GYM MEMBERSHIP because he, his partner and their children are […]


The Millionaire and I have been cussing and discussing the idea of starting some home improvement projects for quite some time now. I, for one, am positively giddy because I hate almost everything about this place. (Marriage tip no. 483,469,921: don’t buy a house your partner hates) Our house has lots of potential, but unless […]


Every year as a family we typically adopt a family. This year’s finances have been pretty tight, so we aren’t sure if we can swing it. Instead of giving up totally on the idea of helping someone in need, we’ve offered some help to a family friend. Still, it didn’t quite feel comparable to what […]


(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 […]


    In an amazing opportunity I had this Spring, I met Ms. Parham (featured the above eBay Thanks You video) as part of the eBay Parent Panel Summit. That short trip changed my entire outlook about eBay. I thought I was already on top of the world after being selected as part of the […]


While I was in Memphis I busted ass trying to help my mother get her house in shape. I emptied out cabinet after cabinet of stuff, cleared out the fridge and scrubbed what I could. While I did some of the more down and dirty jobs, my mom diligently got rid of boxes and boxes […]


At this point I don’t even know what I can say. The entire process is taking much longer than I expected, and I felt I was giving myself leeway for things to go wrong. A full week later, I still haven’t finished IN THE KITCHEN. Other rooms have been cleared a  here and there to […]


I’ve been here since Saturday night. I started cleaning Monday morning, with the goal to clean the kitchen and laundry room. I’m about 10 minutes away from falling asleep and still have more than half the kitchen to go after two 8 hour + days of  nonstop cleaning. The kitchen alone is going to take […]


Tomorrow morning I head to Memphis for the clean out extravaganza 2012. Tensions are high, but we have a plan in place. I’ve created a Pinterest board with some of my ideas for simple, easy organization that I think ANYONE could use. In fact, I’ve even done a bit of organizing around my own house […]


I’m not a professional, but I am a daughter of a wonderful lady who has trouble knowing what to keep and what to toss. Throw in some childhood traumas related to cleaning and an adult trauma related to having your sentimental keepsakes thrown out without your consent, and you have the makings of a pack […]
