Pizza Puff Appetizers | Healthy Homemade Appetizers

I try really hard to make healthy food choices when I grocery shop. I avoid processed food whenever possible and prefer to make it from scratch. When my husband or the kids (17 & 21) go to the store on their own, they bring home foods that are more processed than I prefer. The have […]

Arthritis Home Remedy | Essential Oil Rub

Arthritis Home Remedy | Essential Oil Rub

I’ve decided that getting old is less than fun. As if I wasn’t already really loving the fact that my heel spur is bothering me, I have also developed arthritis in the fingers of my left hand. As someone who types all day long, I can tell you that pain and swelling in your fingers […]

Retirement Planning Without Losing Your Mind

Retirement Planning Without Losing Your Mind

Retirement planning isn’t something that I paid much attention to when I was younger. Some of my jobs offered a variety of retirement planning options from 401K plans to pensions and some did not.

Cat Quilling Valentines Day Card

I’ve been searching for a unique Valentines Day card for Marty for Valentine’s Day. I’m not a huge fan of store bought cards most of the time. I really like cards that I make myself because they are more unique and one of a kind. Every year, I try to think of something different to […]

DIY Spray | Lavender Linen Spray

There is nothing more romantic or relaxing than slipping between sheets scented with lavender or other essential oil. I’ve purchased Lavender Linen Spray at fancy bedding stores in the past but it’s a very easy DIY spray to make yourself. Since I just ran out of the store bought version, I decided I would make […]

Allergy Friendly | Grain Free Pumpkin Nut Bread

Allergy Friendly | Grain Free Pumpkin Nut Bread

Making allergy free food choices has become almost automatic for me most of the time. I know what I need to buy at the grocery store. I know what meals I need to cook. The one area I still struggle with is finding things that are allergy friendly for everyone in the house to snack on. […]

Easy Super Bowl Invitations | Easy Way to Make Note Cards

I’m definitely not what you’d call a big sports fan. The Super Bowl will be on at our house but it will be the guys that are watching it. Although I do love the Super Bowl commercials, I’m not really a football fan. I’ll make some snacks, enjoy visiting and play games on my phone […]
