Transitioning Thank Yous

When I decided to transition from relaxed to natural hair, I knew I’d have bad hair days. I had them when my hair was chemically treated so why not now? When I had bad hair days with my relaxed hair, I’d just pull it into a pony tail and go. […]

Small Talk Six Places I’m Registered, So Buy Me Something!

Today’s topic is to list six places we’d like to register for Christmas. Well, I decided to go a step further and list the items I’d like too (because I’m helpful like that). 1. Disney 3-Night Bahamian Cruise – My kids are old enough where they’d not only remember this […]

My Four-Legged Shadow

When I first became a stay-at-home-mom, the dog really didn’t pay me that much attention and I returned the favor. As far as I was concerned, he belonged to my kids. Isn’t it enough that I feed and water them? Do I have to take care of their furry little […]

Small Things are Really Big Things

I have failed at writing a gratitude post every day. I didn’t write anything yesterday because I didn’t have anything “big” to write about – there were no fabulous sales, no successful culinary experiments, no children making me laugh…. The only thing that happened is that I woke up and […]

I’m not much of a drinker but I do love fizzy drinks so a couple of years ago I came up with this tart and tangy drink to serve during the holidays…. 4 oz Ginger Ale 4 oz Cranberry Juice Crushed Peppermints (for garnish) Crushed Ice Put crushed ice into […]

Gratitude for Plantitude

So those who follow me on twitter know that I decided to take advantage of the warm weather we had today and stain the wooden trunk I’ve been working on. What was with today’s weather? It was like 65 degrees, not that I’m complaining or anything, but wow! I have […]
