Home Project Process Woes

What a nightmare of a day, a weekend really. My hubby and my brother (thank you big brother!) are installing laminate flooring in my son’s room, the hallway, and our family room. For any of you that know my hubby you will understand that this is a big project and you know how he gets – well he has gotten that way and more! Ugh! I totally appreciate him doing … Continue Reading →
Searching for faux pumpkins

Searching for faux pumpkins

Ok gang, I need your help. You know those foam (or something) pumpkins that are carvable, well I want some of them but my frugal nature doesn’t want to pay as much as what I see them for at the local craft stores. Anyone know of a good and cheap source for some faux pumpkins? We love to carve Halloween pumpkins each year, and probably will always do at least … Continue Reading →
Five Dot Design

Five Dot Design

Ohhh, look at the goodie I received in today’s mail! Such a nice thing to get in my Monday mail instead of bills. These are the note cards I won from Kristen over at Five Dot Design during the Bloggy Carnival. I received three different designs. The top two are pretty swirly type designs in two different color schemes. Then there is the great watermelon design on the third which … Continue Reading →
Laundry Ugh

Laundry Ugh

Ok, so ugh to most household chores. Today I need to do laundry though so that is my ugh (one of them) for now. Of course, I really should be putting a load in now instead of writing this blog even. As soon as I’m done with this post I will go put in the first load of the day, really, I promise! Where are all the self-cleaning fabrics, the … Continue Reading →
Alien Ottoman

Alien Ottoman

How crazy looking is this? I just love it – looks like an alien maybe, but it’s an an ottoman made from recycled flip-flops. Cool, huh? It is a bit (ahem) on the pricey side at $350 but I can put it on my when-I-win-the-lottery-wish-list all the same. It’s the Miss Rio Ottoman available on Design Within Reach if you just have to have one of your very own. Continue Reading →
List Caddy Prize

List Caddy Prize

Happy Dance! I won a prize I really wanted from Adventures in Mommyland. I am the very happy winner of a List Caddy. This is a very clever little invention with lots of uses, but I really want it to clip onto the grocery cart to hold my shopping list. I am always dropping my list at the store so when I saw these I thought “what a great idea”. … Continue Reading →
I’m Going Kruz-ing

I’m Going Kruz-ing

Not a cruise, but a Kruz! I won the Dirt Devil Kruz stick vacuum from over at superdumb supervillain (fantastic blog) in the Oh, You Handsome Devil giveaway. She just notified me this morning and it was great to have such a neat win notice in my morning email. I can’t wait to get this because we are getting laminate flooring in the living room, hallway, and my son’s room … Continue Reading →
Battery, Tires, Oil Change, What Next?

Battery, Tires, Oil Change, What Next?

Made my grocery list, have my reusable grocery bags, go out to the car, put in the key, nothing. Dead, dead, dead! Argh! Call my hubby, who happens to be an automotive tech, he tells me it’s probably the battery and he had the parts guy at his work order one and will bring it home tonight. Sigh, more money. I really don’t like having to spend money on my … Continue Reading →
