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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
