Let's talk about the girls today. Your girls. Are you guys following me? Okay, boobs. We're talking about boobs today. There I said it! Have a giggle and now let's move on and talk seriously. (Or maybe I'm the only one giggling. Product of having two tween boys at the moment...) So this isn't my usual post but it's definitely one many of us … [Read more...]

It's that time of year again - Skylanders time! They have released their latest game, Skylanders SuperChargers. The new schtick with this year's game is the add-on of cars and vehicles. The starter pack comes with one vehicle (you can buy more at your local store for an additional price, of course) and the cars can go on land, water and in the air. … [Read more...]

Every time I turn around, I see a friend or another blogger talking about this book -The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing ($10.81). I've been wanting to order it for months and I finally went and did it this week. I sort of already knew much of what the book was about based on other people's … [Read more...]

As a former vegetarian for animal rights reasons, this issue is important to me. Read below for a piece from a guest writer on the ASCPA's movement to Change Your Chicken. I think this is an important one. We always, if given the opportunity, buy organic free range chickens but labels aren't always to be believed. See below: Did you know … [Read more...]

After my last Stitch Fix box {#8}, I was eager to order again. I kept everything in that last one. Box #9 was definitely geared toward the fall and I ended up keeping two of the 5 items. I did not keep this dress. I just didn't love it on me. The color was great for the fall. But also, disappointingly, it had a stain on it. I certainly … [Read more...]

I finally have my girl! My boys are going to kill me but I couldn't resist trying on this ballerina costume from T.J. Maxx on my newest baby girl, 4-month old border collie mix Maisie. I'll tell you guys, getting it on her was a FEAT. And posing? Well I'm patting myself on the back for having distracted with treats and having gotten these photos. I … [Read more...]

I'm a chronic tv-show binge watcher. Ever since the evolution of tv technology and all the streaming shows available, I find I get addicted very easily. There's nothing more satisfying than getting to episode 2 or 3 of a show, realizing you're totally hooked and seeing that you have several seasons worth of shows to watch! Yah! I love that … [Read more...]

I've become a bit of a body scrub junkie. I've tried out several brands over the years and even my boys love having these in the shower. My latest fav is from one of my favorite companies, Yes to Carrots. They now have Yes to Coconut and I saw a mention of the Yes to Coconut Polishing Body Scrub when I was flipping through a Redbook Mag while … [Read more...]

I just noticed that Vera Bradley's on Zulily today for some great prices. You can get travel duffels like the one picture above for $49.99 (normally $85)... I know I'm on there now seeing who I can shop for, for Christmas. (I know, so organized, right?!) … [Read more...]
