Cats, Dogs, and the Swiffer Effect

October 23, 2014 Living

You all know I love my cats but having three cats also means a lot of cat fur and dander around the house. I swear they shed enough to make a new cat every week! Like I said though, I love my cats and that means I just have to find other solutions to help […]

Football Tailgating Essentials

October 19, 2014 Living

Football season is in full swing and one of the best parts is tailgating. For me the tailgating is more fun than the actual game. Hang out with friends, grill up some tasty food and have a drink or two. What’s not to like? It doesn’t matter if you are into NFL, college football, or […]

Halloween Decorating with Kids

Halloween and kids just go together so well, like spiders and their webs! While we may see tons of fancy Halloween decorations on Pinterest, generally those are not kid-friendly projects.

The Pros and Cons of Wearing High Heels [infographic]
