Blackberry season is here. While in a month we'll have blackberries come out our ears (and freezers), right now I'm harvesting a handful or so at a time. Today I was really craving a blackberry cobbler but didn't have enough berries to make one. Solution? Making a mini cobbler using a baby food jar and the toaster oven.

Summer is here in full-force and that means lots of time spent in the garden for Sweet T and me. For the purpose of this review I was sent a pair of Jollys Garden shoes of my choice (I chose the yellow fashion shoe pictured below) and have really enjoyed using them in the garden and a few other outdoor activities.

Towel Animal Elephant
After my first cruise, I fell in love with towel animals. Coming "home" after a hard day eating at the buffet and relaxing by the pool to a towel animal on my bed made the experience even more special. You don't have to be on vacation to enjoy a fluffy friend. Make them for your kids, house guests, or for your own staycation. … [Read More...]

Technically Sweet T isn't talking yet (unless you count the "bye-bye's" she says completely at random and out of context), but it won't be long before she's blurting out things to embarrass us in public. We all know that kids say the darnedest things and Bnter has created a social network to archive and share those memorable … [Read More...]
