Perfect Example of Why Our Child has a Cell Phone

It’s school vacation week here and since my husband has had to work for most of it, the boys and I have been home and haven’t been able to get out too much. Last night when a friend called and invited Nick(our eleven year old) to go for a swim at the YMCA and then […]

Got Juice!

I have a juicer. It is one of my most favorite kitchen gadgets. I love that when I want fresh, organic juice I can simply make it myself. It had been far too long since the last time I made a juice and my body needs it so this morning I threw one together and […]

Follow Friday-One Step Further….

Save Some Money in the Bulk Aisle

Have you ever found a really yummy sounding recipe that you were just dying to try, but the thought of buying all the dried herbs and spices required changed your mind due the expense of it? I have. Those things are so darned expensive and the waste is ridiculous. If I only need a teaspoon […]

Chips are Clearly Bad for your Health!

Kids will be kids. They will. And no matter how much of your wisdom you try to pass on to them, sometimes they just have to figure it out themselves, no matter how much it hurts! This reminds of a story that I love to tell about my brother because (1)it’s funny and (b)it’s a […]
