It’s My Birthday…My Age and My Theory

A year ago I would have thought this birthday would have brought the following reaction: And here’s the thing – it still kind of does….I am realizing that I am now the age my mom and aunties were when I was my kids’ ages (they seemed so old haha) – It feels like the older I get the faster time goes by. Not only have I been married for nearly 9 years (unreal), and have two beautiful kids (7 and…

Weekly Girly Grey’s Night *And Gyoza’s*

Every Thursday night my friends and I get together to stay up way too late watching Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. It’s a tradition we’ve had for the past few years – we love it. We always end up chatting and just having a great time – nevermind how much we enjoy following the storylines on each of these shows. And of course, we love the snacks! Tonight I was craving Fresh Vegetable Gyoza’s from Costco…but sadly we don’t have…

Crazy Dog Tshirts – One more for the men

I know, my husband is SPOILED! But he really had so much fun looking through and finding shirts that he loved. As I asked in THIS post – Why is it that tshirts seem to give us permission to be inappropriate? In comparison – like a great comedy act, where nothing is off limits. Things make you laugh that just seem to wrong to laugh at – but they are just so funny you can’t help it. It is what…

Scentsy *Enliven the Senses*

I have loved candles my entire life – often getting suckered in by candle stores and mall kiosks. I love them – though found it difficult when I purchased a particularly pretty or unique one because I didn’t want to ruin it. LOL And I have to admit, I have always been the worst at trimming the wick each time (I know…horrible). And since having kids, having an open flame – no matter how high up – doesn’t exactly give…

May Books *No More Ugly Notebooks*

I love a good notebook…I use them ALL the time. And let me tell you, most of them take quite a beating. Not usually that pretty to begin with (just your regular run of the mill notebook), they certainly have minimal appeal at the end. But no more…..may I introduce to you the new wave in notebooks….oh, but not just any notebook…PRETTY notebooks (yes, it matters lol). I am so excited to introduce you to… But they aren’t only *pretty*…

Costume Squad – Another Tshirt for the Men!

I’m not sure how Brent got so lucky…oh wait, I am, I passed  these tshirt review items to him! (Yep, Wife of the Year award!!!). I couldn’t pass up the opportunity, seeing as – as mentioned before – there aren’t as many reviews or giveaways on men’s items and of course his high school wardrobe is in need of some *ahem* help. So this was really fun. Brent scoured Costume Squad for the perfect tshirt – and finally made his…
