Fuller Brush Company Premium Floor Care vs. Glitter - Give Away

I love Christmas time.  I love decorating for it.  I love my Christmas tree, and I especially love my ‘candy garland’ strands that adorn it each year.  What I DON’T love is the glitter those very same candy garlands leave all over my floors.

Yep from December to June we drag that glitter from one room to the next on the soles of our slippers, socks and feet.  Why oh why does glitter need to cling so furiously?

Smart Success - One Week Later

So last Monday I blogged about Bob Harper's Smart Weight Loss supplements.  I told you I'd 'weigh' in (ooh bad pun, I know!) on my thoughts about it and any weight loss or gain I had using it.  

I started on January 1st with the Smart Weight Loss Starter Kit, which had me taking 2 of the AM formulated pills 30 minutes before breakfast and lunch and then 2 of the PM formulated pills 30 minutes before dinner.  A recommended 30 minutes of exercise per day, approximately 1600 calorie meal plan, the use of a multi-vitamin and 8-10 glasses of water were also a part of the 'program'.

Ack! Our Auto Insurance is Going to Go Up this Year!

Our daughter turns 16 this April.  How is it that time can go by so quickly?  I remember her first car ride on the way home from the hospital. My husband tucked her safely into the infant seat and buckled it in the back of the car making sure the seat belt was securely fastened. And now that tiny girl that weighed in at just 6 pounds 3 ounces is ready to get behind the steering wheel herself.  It just doesn’t seem possible.

Custom Framing More Than Art - A Reminder of a Wonderful Heritage

Before I was married I had no real concept of an investment.  I was just happy to have “pretty things”.

After my father-in-law passed away, my mother-in-law gave all her children some money.  My husband and I wanted to get something with it that would satisfy my need for “pretty” (LOL) but also do a responsible adult thing and purchase something both of value and sentiment.

White Chicken Chili Recipe

I wanted to find a great, healthy recipe for a winter day. I found this in the Campbell’s Kitchen, and it’s one of the yummiest chili recipes I have ever made. Also excellent garnished with avocado and green onions!

DIY Aloe Vera Lip Gloss

Inspired by a new year DIY challenge from a friend of mine I searched online for something to make with ingredients I already had in my home.  I decided to make an Aloe Vera Lip Gloss which will give a shine to my lips and protect, moisturize and heal them all at the same time!

Ironic Newspaper Headlines

Some of you may have already seen this as my husband received is as an e-mail forwarded from a co-worker, who got it from his wife, who got it from...well you know how it goes.  I don't know where it originally came from but I laughed and thought you might too.  A good start to the weekend!

Inspired by Celebrity Sunglasses

I am not a big fan of Lady Gaga by any means, but I do like me some Disney characters. 

I saw a picture of her looking like Cruella De Vil and while I’m pretty sure it was not for a Halloween event, I have to say…she can actually pull this off.

The Dalmatian effect on the "mouse ears" and red lipstick really set off the stark whiteness of the outfit and her skin tone.  Of course so do the mirrored lenses on the sunglasses, which I happen to really like.

Tools and Resources for Online Degrees

Have you set goals for your life at the beginning of other years and never accomplished them?  Was one of them perhaps to get more education or work further on a degree you already have?  Did you put it aside because of time, money or both?  If this is the case for you, think about it again in 2012, and list the steps you need to take to reach that goal.  It may have changed since you first resolved to do it, but setting a goal towards furthering your education will put you on the path to actually doing it.
