I just bought a sewing machine! I’m so excited to start using it. Isn’t she a beaut? Advertisements

Trying to become organized

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of an awful slob sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, my house shouldn’t be on an episode of Hoarders, but I’m constantly losing things and battling clutter in all aspects of my life. My goal is to really put some effort into becoming more organized. Have you got…


I’ve been taking a photoshop class online through a local community college. I’m having a blast with it although I’m still quite the novice. I think I might attempt to design my own bachelorette party invitations. Anyone have any tips, tricks, or favorite free brushes for me?

Salsa Chicken Tacos

Do you own a crock pot? If you do, I’ve got to tell you about this recipe I made for my family. I specify my family because I actually don’t eat meat, but I cook for my family often and they’re the traditional meat and potatoes types. Anyway, moving on… Everybody was thrilled with this…

Enter Excuse Here

Hey there! I don’t have an excuse for not writing, although I’m back! Things seemed to just get in the way, and who’s to say they won’t again – but I’ve missed my little corner of the internet so I thought I’d check back in again.

Check the Kelly Blue Book value even on new cars, salespeople will be surprised. Stand your ground. I’m a non-confrontational type of…

My First Towing Experience

Please excuse me for the lack of updates this week, it’s been one crazy week! To cap it all off, I had my first tow truck experience today. Although I was already sweaty from the 113 degree Arizona weather today (my A/C has been on the fritz for months), I got to sit in it…

The Excitement Builds!

Are you as excited as I am for tomorrow? The HBO show True Blood which is based off of The Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris premiers its 5th season tomorrow. I’ve been trying to keep myself away from any spoilers, but to get all of the details and fun wallpapers, like the one shown…
