• Valentine’s Day..Cutting Through the Commercial

    Ah! Valentine's Day - the time of the year that has the world divided.  Everyone has an opinion. Some people hate it and some people love it and everyone will tell you their opinion on it.

  • We’re Not “That” Frugal

    [caption id="attachment_462" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Photo by WilliamHartz"][/caption] Me and my husband were driving last weekend when I saw a billboard for a 'Gentleman's Club' where you get a FREE lunch.  I told my dear hubby, "No matter how much we are trying to save money we are not THAT frugal."  Of course it was a joke, my hubby wouldn't go to ...

  • Best Way to Clean Your Bathroom Mirrors

    I have developed a way of keeping my bathroom mirrors clean all the time that is easy and you can do in a couple of minutes.  I think this way is good because you don't have to run for paper towels and Windex (by the way vinegar works great for windows as an alternative!).  You only need things you would ...

  • Frugal Fun: Muffins

    [caption id="attachment_373" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Mmmmuffins!"][/caption] One thing I found you can do, even if you don't have much money, is baking.  In fact, it can save you money!  It's a good way to entertain the kids, too, if you get them involved.  With my 18 month old I just give him a bowl and spoon, but a little flour in a ...

  • Money is matters of the brain, not heart

    It needs to be said: you should think with your head and avoid thinking with your heart.  You might be saying..."it is impossible to think with your heart, your heart is the organ that pumps blood to the brain" and that might be true.  But then again not true because people think with their heart all the time and it ...

Ah! Valentine’s Day – the time of the year that has the world divided.  Everyone has an opinion. Some people hate it and some people love it and everyone will tell you their opinion on it. I like it as a concept, but hate how expensive it has become. The legend behind Valentine’s Day is quite beautiful, although probably not 100%  true.  The story goes that St. Valentine (probably not […]

The “C” Word – Is it Cancer?

Written by Jennifer On September - 15 - 2011 6 Comments

Let me start off by saying that I really debated whether I would blog about this.  For the most part I’ve kept this private and in the family and I felt it was ‘too private’ to share on my public blog.  Ultimately I made the decision to share because it might help someone going through the same thing. Today I’m going to talk about The “C” Word.  The word no one […]

We’re Not “That” Frugal

Written by Jennifer On August - 29 - 2011 0 Comment

Me and my husband were driving last weekend when I saw a billboard for a ‘Gentleman’s Club’ where you get a FREE lunch.  I told my dear hubby, “No matter how much we are trying to save money we are not THAT frugal.”  Of course it was a joke, my hubby wouldn’t go to a place like that, but it got me thinking about being frugal and being reputable.

Those of you who know me will know that I am the biggest Disney freak!  I love going to Disney World so much, and I love the movies.  I hate to say it, but I am very disappointed with Disney now.

Hate mail

Written by Jennifer On August - 3 - 2011 3 Comments

We as moms are all a hard-working group.  We have kids to attends to, dinners to arrange, husbands to prep, houses to clean, driving working, and if you are a mom blogger like me you have blogging, editing, tweeting, and website building.  That is just the tip of the iceberg.  We all take on so much.  Sometimes it feels like you can push through any crap pile and come out the […]

Hiatus, & My Apologies

Written by Jennifer On August - 1 - 2011 0 Comment

The hiatus is a result of my in-laws visiting from Scotland for 2 weeks.  This site is as of yet still new, and it’s only me who runs the show, so at this point I don’t have a backup for when things like that happen.  I should have been prepared, and I apologize, but it ended up being scrambling around to get ready for them to get here, which allowed […]
