Tips for Looking Younger | Aging Gracefully

Thank you to Olay for sponsoring today’s post. I’m 48. It happened a few weeks ago.  No, it didn’t really come as a shock. After all, 48 comes after 47. It’s a natural progression. What did come as more of a shock is that 48 is pretty darn close to 50. I’m not fond of […]

Having a Frugal Christmas | Stretching your Holiday Dollars

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chase Ultimate Rewards. All opinions are 100% mine.

Homemade Wrapping Paper | Sponge Stamping

Homemade wrapping paper | Sponge stamping

So I was going through my Christmas wrapping supplies and realized that I am very short on adult wrapping paper. For some reason, I seem to have a bunch of little kid themed wrapping paper. I have no little kids on my Christmas shopping list so I’m not sure why I have Christmas Winnie the […]

Easy Meals for Caregivers | Healthy Slowcooker Meals

I took part in the Every day care TM project from Whirlpool® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #EveryDayCare Dinner-time is the most crazy time of the day at my house.

Christmas Survival Gift Basket

Christmas Survival Gift Basket

Christmas morning is chaos in my house. On a normal morning, all I want is coffee and quiet. On Christmas morning, what I get is kids, family, noise, chaos and mess. Most of this before I have managed to drink more than half a cup of coffee. That leaves me slightly less than happy and […]
