We all know that we should be taking our vitamins every day, that doesn't mean I have to like it though! I often forget to take mine. When I do remember, it is such a chore because I have a horrible time trying to swallow pills. It usually takes several times for even the smallest of pills to get where they're going. That is why you will find me stealing the gummy vitamins from the kid's … [Continue Reading...]

{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Grandbaby Smiles #ww

Recipe : Mini Meatloaf Muffin Cups

mini meatloaf cups

Sometimes, dinner pops up when you least expect it! Last week, I was busy getting my new computer all set up and before I knew it, everyone was asking what was for dinner! Dinner was "supposed" to be meatloaf, but I had forgotten to make the loaf and put it in the oven an hour earlier. So, Mini Meatloaf Muffin Cups were just right -- quick prep and only a 25 minute bake time meant everyone was … [Continue Reading...]

Spring Fling with Olay Regenerist Luminous #LuminousGlow


With spring on my mind {pay no attention to the foot of snow that fell last night!}, I'm thinking about more than just warmer temps. I'm also trying to forget that spring also means my birthday and the big 3-5! Eek!  Lately, I have really been noticing the wrinkles and lines popping up on my face more and more. Not to mention, my under eye circles are awful enough to make me cringe, when I look … [Continue Reading...]

Juicy shredded chicken for easy weeknight meals

This winter has been busy! I've been running my son back and forth to classes (hopefully he'll get his license this spring!) and my daughter back and forth to after school activities. I want to have a nice meal on the table for the kids and my hubby when they get home from school and work -- but I do not want to face the "What's for dinner doldrums" every night.  This Oven Baked Chicken is the … [Continue Reading...]

Throwback Thursday : Cousins #tbt

best cousins - throwback thursday

I may have shared this photo on the blog before, but it is one of my favorites, so here it is again! This is the perfect Throwback Thursday photo of my cousin and I! I'm fairly certain we were wearing our Gramma and Grampa's coats, hats, earmuffs and gloves and just being plain silly. I have to have a giggle every time I see an old photo of us two with our giant plastic frame glasses -- we were … [Continue Reading...]

On the Road again: A firsthand trip with Kerouac


"On the Road" is one of the rare books that has stood the test the time. It hits on the human desire to explore and to be a part of something bigger in this life; values that are even more prevalent today. With the rise of technology, it’s easy to see the Great Wall of China or the Eiffel Tower, all from the palms of our hand. What we lose out on is the experience, and that is the best part about … [Continue Reading...]
