Things I’m loving lately

Things I’m loving lately

Oh, hello there!  Just popping in to tell you about a few things I’m loving lately.  I’d love to promise I’ll be back regularly, but I usually fail when I say that.  Life is busy, and I find myself putting so much time into Columbus […]

Democracy Absolution: The jeans you need to buy

Democracy Absolution: The jeans you need to buy

You need a new pair of jeans, don’t you?  Do yourself a favor and get a pair of Democracy Absolution jeans.  My SIL told me about them last summer, and since I was still losing baby weight, I just bought a pair of the capris […]

Review: Jose Cuervo Margaritas in a can

Review: Jose Cuervo Margaritas in a can

I love margaritas.  A lot.  But I don’t like just any margarita…  I’m kind of picky and prefer higher end ones – rocks and salt, please.  The premade ones aren’t that great (I mean, I probably won’t turn one down), but when I saw these […]

I Love Lemon Noosa Yoghurt

I Love Lemon Noosa Yoghurt

If you’ve never tried Noosa yoghurt, I understand.  It’s expensive, and obviously pretentious because it’s not spelled yogurt (actually, it’s because it’s Australian-style).  But it is soooo good.  I think it typically runs around $2.59 per single serving container, but I NEVER buy it unless […]

Decoding baby clothing sizes and brands

Decoding baby clothing sizes and brands

When I was pregnant with Jenson and first starting looking at baby clothing, I had no idea how confusing baby clothing sizing could be.  The one thing I knew was that my 7 nieces and nephews (at that point) were all over 8 lbs., and […]

Smile’s Prid Drawing Salve – best thing for splinters or glass!

If you ever get a splinter, a shard of glass, or anything else stuck in/under your skin, don’t even try any other remedy. I stepped on a tiny shard of glass in the kitchen (from a broken skillet lid) and could not get it out.  […]

Sons of Anarchy: my thoughts

Sons of Anarchy: my thoughts

I just finished watching Sons of Anarchy.  Lo watched it when it was currently airing, and I honestly had no interest in it.  He’d watch it while I was at volleyball or busy, so I’d catch a little bit when I got home or came […]

Tony Roma’s Pulled Pork Review

Tony Roma’s Pulled Pork Review

I love having quick meal options when there isn’t time for anything else.  Just because I’m home now, doesn’t mean I made it to the grocery store or remembered to thaw meat from the freezer to prepare dinner.  And sometimes I’m just trying to get […]

liveGfree Southwest Vegetarian Tamale Bites Review

liveGfree Southwest Vegetarian Tamale Bites Review

A couple of months ago I bought the liveGfree Southwest Vegetarian Tamale Bites at Aldi’s when they were on special.  I didn’t try them until last month when I was looking for a quick lunch to make while Jenson napped.  I was at the point […]

Live G Free Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Live G Free Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies

A few months ago, I stocked up on some of the products in Aldi’s gluten-free line of products called liveGfree.  It’s nice to have less expensive gluten-free options – especially for those who struggle to afford specialty gluten-free items.  While I lean towards homemade or […]
