Why and How to Remove Bird Poop Off Your Car ASAP

Why and How to Remove Bird Poop Off Your Car ASAP

Birds are amazing flying through the air and many of us enjoy putting seed out for them in the winter months to watch. However, their bird poop (bird droppings) are not good for the finish on our cars at all. If you leave bird droppings on your car for an extended period of time it can start to eat through the clear coat and then the paint. Here is a quick video of Hubby, a … Continue Reading →
Recipe: Smoked Beef Brisket

Recipe: Smoked Beef Brisket

Beef brisket is one of the tastiest cuts of beef ever invented. One of my families favorite ways to prepare a brisket is to smoke it. This requires a lot of time but the end result is so worth it. Hubby prepared this one on Labor Day and it was amazing and he is sharing his recipe with you all today. Enjoy! Hubby says…. I use a rub always on smoked meats. There are commercially … Continue Reading →
Add Tech to the Man Cave from Best Buy

Add Tech to the Man Cave from Best Buy

Hubby has been planning on making a Man Cave out of our son’s old bedroom since he moved out. He wants a place that is all his own for his stuff, especially the stuff I don’t really care to look at. Right now he takes a chair in the empty room, along with his dog, his guitar, his laptop and a Bluetooth speaker and just enjoys the time to himself playing his guitar along with … Continue Reading →
My Version of Hubby’s #SwitchersRemorse

My Version of Hubby’s #SwitchersRemorse

Have you ever wished you had not made a change to something else? Did you think the grass was greener on the other side of the fence? How long did it take you to realize you made a mistake and you had switcher’s remorse? So this weekend I have been thinking about a story to tell you all about my own feeling of switcher’s remorse because I am working on this as part of Verizon’s … Continue Reading →
Home Preserving Cookbook Review by Hubby

Home Preserving Cookbook Review by Hubby

Today’s post is from Hubby! He is the canner in our family so he was the perfect one to review this cookbook here on my blog.   When I was a little kid I remember helping my grandma can things like beets, green beans, carrots, apple butter, and jellies. As an adult I thought it would be cool to try and relive some of the memories I had with Grandma by learning to can myself. … Continue Reading →
Great Gift Idea for Men: Mantry

Great Gift Idea for Men: Mantry

While Hubby is actually easy to buy gifts for, not all men are. Recently Mantry contacted me about trying out their product and it sounded perfect for Hubby, and a lot of other guys I know, so I said yes. They sent out one of their Mantry crates and I surprised Hubby with it. I did not open it beforehand even, I just snapped the pics below as he opened it. Mantry is a curated … Continue Reading →
Date Night at the Shooting Range?

Date Night at the Shooting Range?

Last night I took Hubby out for a date night. He knew it was date night but I did not give him any details other than that ahead of time. Boy was he surprised with what I planned for the evening! If you do not plan date nights with your spouse/partner I highly suggest that you do. I understand if you have kids that it is harder to do, but really try to make time … Continue Reading →
Words I Love: Nuttier than a squirrel turd

Words I Love: Nuttier than a squirrel turd

This week’s Words I Love is for Hubby. I cannot remember where I heard this saying somewhat recently but I shared it with him and he thought it was one of the funniest things ever and has repeated it often since then. Now just a quick note that I am always one to advocate for reducing stigma of mental illness, but part of that includes being able to laugh about it at times. You are … Continue Reading →
He can do that too. I am impressed!

He can do that too. I am impressed!

One thing I have noticed that I am doing lately is sharing with Hubby when he does something that is impressive to me. These may not be giant things, but they are things I notice. Apparently this has a fairly positive impact for him because he has mentioned them back to me afterwards and told me that he liked that I told him. Marriage means we are constantly having to stay on our toes I … Continue Reading →
Camouflage Cake with Hunter Orange Icing

Camouflage Cake with Hunter Orange Icing

Hubby is a tad bit camouflage crazy if you ask me, but I love him anyway. He has tons of camo hats, shirts, pants, cell phone cases, you name it. That must come with the territory for a lot of hunters I guess. A few weeks ago we were in Walmart and we spotted a cake mix for a camouflage cake and Hubby instantly got happy. I told him I would make it for his … Continue Reading →
