Rolling in Fun

A while back, I watched an episode of Undercover Boss which isn’t one of my typical must-watch shows.  The reason I was interested this time around was because it focused on Lucky Strike, a chain of bowling facilities.  Having attende ...
Does This Scrunchie Go With My Leather Boots?

Does This Scrunchie Go With My Leather Boots?

Us men have it easy. Well, most men. Short (or no) hair means no extra fancy doodads on our heads. Au natural or a baseball cap is all that is required. Maybe a winter cap when the weather is appropriate, or a derby cap for the golf course. ...
Branded. Some More Than Others.

Branded. Some More Than Others.

I like to believe that I’m a reasonable parent. I love spoiling my kids on MY terms, not theirs. When they ask for something, sometimes they get it. If they ask for two… they get none. Doesn’t matter what it is or where we ...

How Many Watches is too Many? ∞

I love watches. There, I said it. For as far back as I can recall, I have always enjoyed wearing some type of watch on my wrist. I grew up in the multiple-watches-on-one-arm Swatch era, and while I don’t recall sporting more than one ...

How NOT to Freeze in Iowa

How NOT to Freeze in Iowa

Have you been watching the weather reports lately? A blizzard just whipped through Iowa and closed us down. The snow plows weren’t even out. Neither were the tow trucks. As DH so politely puts it… “Where’s this globa ...
You Never Know What You’ll Find

You Never Know What You’ll Find

I’m a big fan of stretching a buck.  Doesn’t matter what you call it – cheap, frugal, tightwad – it pretty much boils down to the fact that money doesn’t grow on trees.  Although many parents recited that same ...
Because Kids Keep Growing

Because Kids Keep Growing

Miss K just turned 5 this past week. As I tucked her in the night before, she said “I’m going to be bigger tomorrow.” “You sure will be, Honey. You’ll be 5!” We said our good-nights and I looked forward t ...
