Apparently, we hit enough subzero days in a row for it to be the third or fourth coldest winter in all of recorded weather history here. Interesting. Or not really. When you have no car all day since your husband takes it to work and the snow is up to your ribs, getting out with toddlers is impossible. No stroller axle competes with snow that is higher than the entire ….
This one is a no-brainer really. We all know how to put together a taco. You have your tortillas and your salsas or hot sauces. Then get your fixings. Lettuce, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheese of choice. Although if you want to go more authentic, you would skip the lettuce and cheese. But, this is the Midwest, so I will save the good ethnic food for when we meander over to ….
*bundle c/o Moody Sisters So unless you’re new around here, you probably know I am a little bit of a skin care junkie, plus a big bit of a hippie dippie lover of natural oils, butters, and homemade body products. Natural skin care? It doesn’t need to be expensive or complicated! One trend we have seen over the years is the propensity for women to begin paying closer attention to ….
From Trash to Treasure……oh Come on now When you decide to get real, and admit you should shuck some of the crap you brought with during your last move, the curb can be your friend. Mind you this works much better in the city than the suburbs, and especially in college student neighborhoods. Or in our case, stick-it-to-the-man neighborhoods. One thing I have enjoyed about this area these past seven ….
There’s No Place Like Home…… Too bad it can be hard to find. So we decided to move to the east side. That means nothing to anyone outside of our neighborhood, but it is huge for us. At first I figured we had just outgrown our neighborhood. Then I thought maybe it was the hipsters annoying me. But after more thought on the matter, this just wasn’t home. And I ….
In my quest to jazz up our meal routine, I got into trying out different pork dishes for a few months. I have never been much of a pork eater, aside from my mother’s pork chops and rice recipe. However, when I discovered how cheap this protein can be when purchased in bulk, I decided it would be worth trying out a few cooking methods and seeing if it ….
The places we are going are so much better than the places we have been, but I no longer mind having been to them. A little hardship really is good for us all. And with each success, it becomes easier to see that truth. *********** You see, I thought it was a tummy bug going around, but then it didn’t go away when everyone else was all better. And I ….

It was one of those rare days. Either my mother or my husband was playing the full-time child care attendant while I ran errands and enjoyed some much needed me-time. After picking up items for family members and getting in a mild workout at the gym, I decided a latte would be awesome. See, despite living in a neighborhood with about five coffee shops on every block, I rarely buy ….
