Curious George Birthday Party (Sweet T Turns Three!)

Curious George Birthday Party

Summer Nail Ideas with Jamberry Nail Wraps

Jamberry Patriotic Nails

Confession: I am a cuticle-chewer. Not a nail-biter, but a cuticle chewer. It’s one of those fun things I inherited from my dad along with OCD and big feet (since he was kind enough to pass along a razor-sharp wit and the gift of sarcasm it’s a small price to pay) As a result this […]

Have you heard the Stella Sisters? @lennonandmaisy

I cannot get enough of them! Everything else seems like sandpaper in my ears. If Lennon and Maisy don’t sing it then I don’t want to hear it. Click the videos below and prepare to be ruined. Have you ever heard any better harmony in your life? Their cover of The Lumineers Ho Hey is […]

I miss the 90’s


Am I the only one who thinks of the decade before this one as the 90’s? I’ll even catch myself thinking “Oh please this is the 90’s. Who cares?” I’m afraid 1992 was 20 years ago and I’m having a fit of nostalgia.  Why? Politics: we were worried about this crap Instead of this crap […]

Details, details. Everything started off fine. Her husband even came in at this point in the process, stole sampled […]

Even the amount of appliances in your home don’t scratch the surface as to how magnets actually impact our lives. The next time you step outside (or […]

How to Solve the Cracker Barrel Triangle Puzzle

You know the one I’m talking about: the wooden triangle with golf pegs that you try to figure out while waiting for your food. When I was a child, my dad taught me a Cracker Barrel puzzle solution that I quickly memorized and still use today. I’m sure there’s many ways to solve the puzzle, […]

Hey Girl Hubs Edition


I love the Hey Girl Ryan Gosling meme. Every time a new one pops up on Pinterest I crack up. Hubs thinks they are pretty funny too since he has three sisters, a mom, a wife, and a daughter. He knows women! My favorite so far? It’s a toss up between: or (since I’m a wannabe […]
