She Said, She Said – Best Foundation Ever

Best Foundation Ever

I caught up with my daughter, Caitlin, right before she whisked my grandsons (her nephews) off for a visit to Great Wolf Lodge. The trip is a Christmas gift to the nephews from Caitlin and my other daughter, Holly.  They’ve just now synced their schedules so that everyone is off work at the same time. […]

Bona Keep It Clean Personality Quiz

Spring Cleaning with Bona Floor Mop

Spring cleaning is just around the corner. Are you excited?  I actually have friends that love to clean.  I didn’t get the I-love-to-clean-more-than-anything-else-in-the-world gene. I recently took the Bona Keep It Clean Personality Quiz and found out that my cleaning personality is multitasker.  I’m always trying to do it all.  I talked my husband into […]

DIY Sunday Showcase 3/1

DIY Sunday Showcase

Happy 1st day of March!  What have you been up to this week? I’m counting down to March 20, the first official day of spring.  I’ve been planning my first “for-real” garden and planting vegetable seeds in little cups so I can transplant them outside in late spring. I’ll be placing many phone calls to […]

DIY Sunday Showcase 2/22


I sure hope you all are staying warm and toasty this weekend.  We South Carolinians are not acclimated to this ice, freezing wind and near zero temps!  I’m impatiently yearning for spring OR running away to an island, which ever comes first. Being all cooped up inside, I’m really looking forward to all of your […]

To Know or Not to Know – Baby Gender

To Know or Not to Know Baby Gender

For years it’s been all the rage to know the sex of your baby before he/she is born.  Seems lately, though, that the pendulum is swinging the other way – to not know and be totally surprised, shocked or whatever. My childbearing years occurred during the swing from not knowing (we didn’t have a choice) […]

Is Your Salad Dressed to Kill?
