Great Gift Idea

Thought I would take a moment and share with you a basket that I am donating to a charity event here in AZ tonight.  I put it together pretty easily and it turned out so cute that many people that have seen it are asking me to put them together as gifts for the holidays! [...]

Elf on the Stressful Shelf!

  Last year, I was suckered into purchased an Elf on the Shelf and with to my two girls.  They quickly fell in love, named him “Ralfie”, and inducted him into the family.  They are getting older and wiser and I wasn’t sure how many more of the “Santa-believing Christmases” we would have.  So, every [...]

Adult Cookies ‘n Milk

Every year, my husband and I argue over who has to drink the glass of luke warm milk that has been left out for Santa since the kids went to bed and we began assembling the “Barbie Dream House” (or equivalent miserable project with a crappy instruction manual.)  Well, I think I have found a [...]

Thanksgiving Margarita

I am one of those people that can enjoy a good margarita any time of year.  But, sometimes around the holidays it just feels like a strange cocktail choice.  So, I thought maybe we could dress one up to fit in for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  So, let’s go CRANBERRY!     Cranberry Margarita: ADULT [...]

Fashion Friday: My Purse Addiction

Okay, I admit it.  I’m slightly obsessed with handbags.  If there is a 12-step program for it, I should probably consider attending it.  It happened slowly over time.  You know how it goes–I gained a bunch of weight from having kids, wasn’t feeling all that hot and had no interest in trying on clothes.  So, [...]
