I've blogged a few times about my new toys recently - I got a Panini press, pizzelle maker, and a brand new stove. I even got a brand new car but didn't blog about that - I don't really consider that a toy.  Some might read my blogs and wonder - Does that woman's poor husband ever get… MORE

I had been anticipating this past weekend for a few weeks. Jon and I both had Friday off and we had plans to head to Michigan. Last Wednesday those plans were cancelled, or should I say post-poned, so we were left with the decision of whether or not to just go to work or find something else… MORE

I resolved to spend more time in my kitchen this year.  I have done that, somewhat.  But, for a few months now I've been pondering where I could go now in my kitchen.  I know my way around it pretty well and I wanted to go on a new journey. Have a new adventure.  I needed some spice in my… MORE

We just got back from our last summer trip to the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.  We spent nine days camping and it was a blast.  Anything that could go right, went right.  Anything that could have gone wrong, stayed home.   My last blog was all about how Kristal and I "trained" for… MORE

Very soon now I and my family will be free from New Jersey. Some packing, some loading and then catching a flight for She Who Must Be Obeyed (SWMBO) and my eldest, packing and loading my RV and truck for the long trip to Minnesota with my youngest, and it will be over. Of course we must still… MORE

I considered myself a newbie throwing caution to the wind in 2012 to meet LadySparkle & Magnolia Blossom on their way to Nashville.  Another trip was in the works this year, did I want to go?  Heck yes, I cannot miss another opportunity to meet more AR peeps.  Besides, a vacation was long… MORE

Back in the day when my kids were very small, a man at work brought the cutest elf in to show everyone. His wife was very crafty and was making these elves for Christmas.  I had to have one - I knew my kids would love it!  So I placed my order and couldn't wait the 2 weeks he said it would… MORE
