Have You Checked In?

Have You Checked In?

Places.  As of a few days ago, it has a new meaning for a lot of people.  If you have a smart phone and are accessing Facebook then you’ve probably already figured out that they launched a new feature called “Places”.  It ...
From Glam to Social Awareness

From Glam to Social Awareness

It’s back to school time. The one thing that I absolutely love about this time of year is the immense amount of bargains to be found. We shop for all kinds of school supplies for, you know, school. But we also shop for school supplies ...
Just Bury it in the Backyard

Just Bury it in the Backyard

When I was a kid, the extent of my concern for recycling revolved around a pop bottle. It was a time when most pop came in glass bottles that you bought by the case. At the checkout counter, there was a deposit required of 10 cents per bott ...

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunscreen

Hey, Ice Cream Man! Keep on Driving!

Hey, Ice Cream Man! Keep on Driving!

Countless times, we’ll be standing outside, playing sidewalk chalk or working in the yard when that familiar ring-a-ling wafts in the distance. The kids look at each and try to figure out if it’s coming or going. DH and I look a ...
Chinese Dinner in a Rush

Chinese Dinner in a Rush

Somewhere along the line, life with kids turned overly hectic. Dash here, rush there… Practices, meets, games,  play dates, activities…. We could restrict them to less but right now, we’re letting them make some choices an ...
