The Beauty in Birthstones

Thankfully, I have an appointment set with my favorite stylist. 3. Get my toes done. I don't do my finger nails. I keep them short and clean.

When Did My Phone Become My Third Kidney?

I did the unthinkable yesterday. I left for the office and totally forgot my phone! It was not only inconvenient to spend eight hours without it, it totally messed with my head.

Oh my gawd - … [Read more...]

Bon Jovi’s New Single #BecauseWeCan

I've been a Bon Jovi fan since high school. I remember hearing Runaway, and literally running to the record store excited to hear what else was on the album (7800° Fahrenheit). The eighties were a fun time for music and Bon Jovi was a huge part of that. With their talent for story telling and great sounding rock and roll, my friends and I just couldn't get enough.

My Morning in The Kitchen

I've been in my kitchen all morning prepping to make my work week a little easier. I began by baking a huge turkey breast for casseroles and a homemade pot pie. A nice size chuck roast, and this pretty fruit dessert. Why do I do this? I do it because having homemade balanced meals waiting in the fridge opens up a lot more family time during our busy work days. Time I'd much rather spend … [Read more...]
