When a couple of my tennis friends asked me to go away for a long weekend to an Adult Tennis Camp, it didn't take much arm twisting on their part to get me to say yes! Really, they had me at Florida in the winter but the tennis thing was an added benefit I was intrigued about. I'm somewhat new to tennis. I played a bit as a kid because my Mom … [Read more...]

Having always been intrigued by the monthly beauty box subscriptions I see various bloggers sharing, I finally pulled the plug and signed up for Ipsy late in the fall. I've gotten two bags thus far and they are fun to receive. January was better than December and I hope I'll find some cool makeup I wouldn't normally try from a shipment. I was … [Read more...]

This year we're looking to make slow changes - no quick fixes or gimmicks … [Read more...]

I went with 30, giving myself a little leeway for busy times of year and hit it plus a few extras! I've been seeing a lot of friends share their lists on Facebook and have been … [Read more...]

Meet Chewey, my sister's chihuahua mix. My sis got her from a shelter in Philadelphia over 15 years ago! She's an old girl now but is still the best little doggie. Chewey was found wandering the streets of Philly and taken in to a local shelter to be adopted. Who knows what Chewey's original story is but what we do know is that shelters are … [Read more...]

When my kiddos were littles, I used to be so good about ordering our Christmas cards. I would order every Thanksgiving evening - when I was stuffed and searching for early Black Friday deals. I'd have had our picture ready to go. Man, those were the days! This year, I was just happy to have had some professional photos we took back in the … [Read more...]
