The beginning of the Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival celebration is coming up on February 5. We’ve never celebrated the Chinese New Year in our family, but recently I learned more about the activities, food, and fun involved with the holiday and thought it would be interesting to share what I’ve learned with you!
Earlier in the summer, I wrote about how certain foods remind me of moments in my life. The same is true of music. When I’m listening to the radio and a song from college comes on, I can almost smell the cheap beer, smoke and heavy cologne of late-night parties. Or I can feel the heartbreak of former loves and the comforting touch of my friends. It is amazing how your senses are so in tune with your memories.
Not too long ago, I introduced our dog Honey to Natural Balance treats and shared our experience with you here on the blog. We still buy these treats for her since she loved them so much. When Natural Balance wanted me to check out their Natural Balance Delectable Delights Wet Cups, I think I was more […]
Recently, I’ve written about what you should do if your spouse doesn’t want to get healthy, and I’ll be honest, this is something my husband tries to help me with. I struggle with motivation and constantly look for new reasons to get myself moving. Lately, I’ve discovered something that helps me, I created something that helps me and I’m going to tell you all about both of them!
Keeping up with an active dog can get challenging. Dogs do well in environments where they have plenty of things to do. I remember when our dog, Honey, was younger, she would get bored easily and then get destructive. I have the furniture to prove it! Coming up with things to do with her that kept her busy and were fun for all of us could get difficult. This is where the idea of a dog bucket list came from.

Today I have a quote from Robert Heinlein (1907-1988) an American science-fiction author. It was originally in his book “Stranger in a Strange Land” (1961) and a variant of it was used again in “The Cat Who Walks Through Walls” (1985). I find it interesting (and quite odd) that such a lovely quote could come […]
Valentine’s Day is Friday and you haven’t bought Valentines for your child to take to school? Oh, the horror! What should you do? Head to the pile of stickers you have in the house and either make the scrapbook sticker Valentines I posted the other day, or make these fun sticker sheet Valentines. How to […]
Valentine’s Day can be a fun day, or a stressful day, depending on how much planning you have done in advance. Do you know what you are getting your spouse yet? Do you have any money to spend? Are you eating out or staying in? You should start thinking about it now so you can enjoy your Valentine’s Day instead of running around trying to find a gift or make reservations.
Only five more days until Halloween! Are you ready? Did you plan your “adult” party for friends? Well, here is one more idea to add to the list.
