The Fairy Hobmother Pays A Visit

Do you believe in fairies?  I sure do.  I especially now believe in The Fairy Hobmother from Appliances Online. We are renting our home so the only appliances we own are our Maytag refrigerator, washer and dryer.  But that doesn't mean I'm not always looking at the latest selections for when I finally do own a home again.  But enough about that, let me tell you about this little lady. The Fairy Hobmother goes from blog to blog sprinkling her fairy dust in the form an Amazon gift card.  She … Read More>

Painted Clay Pots - Finished

Painted Clay Pots With Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers

This year for Mother's Day I knew I wanted to do something handmade.  After browsing Pinterest for ideas and finding this from Positively Splendid, I finally decided on a painted clay pot that she could sit on the steps of the deck.  My parents sit on a corner lot and for some reason, we've never used the front door.  Everyone just knows to come to the back patio door when they come to visit.  Since there aren't any house numbers on the back of the house, I thought it would be fun to paint some … Read More>

What You Don’t Know About Go Daddy

Do you find that even with your closest friends, you learn something new about them all the time?  Take for example my high school friend, Emily.  I never knew she was born in St. Louis until she did a guest post for on how she met her husband.  How did I not know this?  I guess it never came up. So I started to think about it.  What do most people not know about me?  Well, a lot of things.  I remembered this 31 Day blog challenge that Tiffany at Fabulous Finds by November Girl … Read More>

Week 3: Insanity & Shakeology Challenge – PB2 Where Have You Been My Whole Life?

My goals this week are to work out before 8 pm, go to bed before 2 am and get up before 8 am.  Lofty goals, I know.  Even for a self-proclaimed night owl, getting 5-6 hours of sleep each night is starting to wear thin.  Last night, I started my workout at 11:45 pm!!  Even though I'm doing the work-outs, I don't feel I'm giving 100% and the my weight loss results reflect it.  This week I only lost .2 lbs for a total of 2 lbs from the start of the program.  Even though I went into this only … Read More>

Social Fabric University: Food Photography With Sony

When I started my blog over a year ago, I thought it would probably be like many of my other hobbies.  I'd dive in full speed only to putter out after a couple of months.  Fortunately, that didn't happen.  What I've learned is I love to blog.  I enjoy sharing my thoughts, experiences and opinions with all of you. I've also "met" some great people through blogging.  Blogging is more than a hobby, it's become a passion. Like most bloggers, I'm always trying to improve my blogging skills.  One … Read More>
