Nagging Snacks!

‘Tis the season for snacking! It all starts with Halloween and won’t end ‘til, let’s be honest, after the New Year. Tiny bites of chocolaty nutty caramel cookie goodness

A Little Holiday Cheer

You’ve got your shopping done, having braved the malls and grocery store. The turkey and/or ham are safely ensconced in the freezer, ready to be thawed. You have all the ingredients you need for a spectacular dinner for friends and family. Now, you just have that obscenely large mountain of gifts to wrap. Why not settle down among the…

Christmas Shopping Countdown

Sometimes even with people we know and love, it’s hard to find the perfect present. I admit, I am not good at present purchasing. I just never know for sure it’s the right thing, or if they’re going to love it, or if I’m going to get the polite “Oh it’s great” statement with the…

A Slightly Different Gift Idea

What do you get that sports fan that has everything? And I don’t mean a “sports” fan, I mean a SPORTS fan. A rabid fan, the guy (or girl) who paints their face team colors, and flies the team flag from those little obnoxious car flag poles. I admit, my choice for a gift idea…

What To Get For The Person Who Has Everything?

We all have that person in our lives that you just can’t seem to think of a great gift for. Whether it’s for their birthday or the holidays, the perfect gift eludes us. Are they picky?

Holiday Gift Ideas

The holidays are a time of fellowship, worship, and let’s face it, gift giving. Stores are jam packed with people searching for the perfect gift and online stores are posting record visits. Novelty gifts are particularly popular at this time of the year, and we all remember Billy Bass, don’t we? I myself was a…

Wacky Wednesday December Trivia!

Ahh, December! I know it’s not technically here yet, but I’m going to be as obnoxious as hearing Christmas music before Halloween and bring it up anyway! Regardless of religion, there is an excitement in the air beginning in November because everyone knows that December is on its way. Songs start to fill the air…

Start Your Shipping Engines!

So, if you aren’t a procrastinator like I am, you already have a good amount of holiday gifts already purchased, and maybe even wrapped. That’s great (even though I’m slightly jealous) and you should be very proud of yourself! It takes forethought and planning to be ahead of the holiday shopping insanity, and my hats off to…

Our Lives in Pictures

When I was 13 years old, I got a Canon Sure Shot for my birthday. I was so excited, for many reasons, but the biggest reason was that it took 35mm film. I had always loved taking pictures, whether in front or behind the lens, but I was always relegated to 110 film, Polaroids, or…

It’s All About the Soap

With the holidays approaching with the speed of light, prep is underway in houses across the country. Floors are being scrubbed, walls are being washed, and counter tops are being disinfected. With all this cleaning, your hands are taking a beating. If yours are anything like mine, they get dry, cracked, and red looking, and…
