Today was that kind of day.

My friend Kathy and I were making […]


I have a horrible fountain drink addiction. I used to never drink soda/pop/cola/coke of any kind. Once I had my first child, a trigger went off inside of me and I had a sudden caffeine crazed addiction of the fountain drink variety. I have tried off and on over the years, without a whole lot […]

Golden Globes Girls Night Out

I have been wanting to throw a Golden Globes or Oscar night party for as long as I have had a home of my own. Each year, I’d just get settled after the crazy holiday season, sit down in front of the TV and notice that the award show was on. It would sneak up […]
